Another week rolls around again! Downton Abbey is still distracting me, along with a strange addiction to the app game Gardenscapes! 😂 I will get back to reading again at some point… hopefully… wishful thinking?
If you don’t already know, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly, list-themed book prompt hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is all about books with numbers in their titles. When I first started thinking of this theme I had a slight panic as I could only think of one book with a number in…! Thank goodness for Goodreads, it definitely came to my rescue in compiling this week’s list. Turns out I’ve read just shy of 20 books with numbers in them (that includes all three Fifty Shades books 🙈), but here are my selections for this week’s TTT.
1984 by George Orwell – it’s a literary classic right…?
Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao – Enjoyed it so much, I’m currently reading the sequel.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo – This is such a gripping read. I gave it 5⭐️
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – I loved this book so so much. It’s so different from anything I’ve read before and will be on my ‘shelf of eternal favouritism’.
Two Years, Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights by Salman Rushdie – I really like Rushdie’s writing, he has such a unique style and I was lucky enough to meet him at a Literature Festival once.
The Tale of Two Bad Mice by Beatrix Potter – Potter’s world of animal tales give me such fond memories of childhood reading.
The Book of Fours by Nancy Holder – I’m a massive Buffy fan and have read lots of the spin-off novels. This one was one of my favourites.
One Day by David Nicholls – This book melted my heart. It was such a page-turner that I think I ended up working all though the night on a university essay because I’d spent all day reading it.
Starter For Ten by David Nicholls – Another Nicholls novel, this one makes the list because I’m such a fan of quiz shows especially University Challenge. It makes me feel slightly cleverer when I get one of the questions right!
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling – There had to be one didn’t there…and half is a number right?!
That’s my Top Ten books I’ve read with a number in the title. What would make your list? As always, drop me a comment to chat!
