10 Prompts, 1 Post: Celebrating Top Ten Tuesday’s 10th Birthday

Today is a very special day in the world of book blogging! It’s the 10th birthday of Top Ten Tuesday!

and now i can never unsee lord of the rings GIF

Top Ten Tuesday has been a source of joy to many book lovers and book bloggers over the past 10 years, and has brought so many of us together, letting our bookish screams be heard across the void, and has introduced us all to new books that we’d never heard so much as a whisper of before – but they’re now our favourite, most coveted books.

Top Ten Tuesday moved from its founding home at The Broke and The Bookish into the loving hands of Jana on her beautiful blog That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Naturally today’s prompt is a special one,  “Option 1: pick a past TTT topic you’ve done and re-do/update it. Option 2: pick a past TTT topic you wish you’d done, but didn’t get a chance to do (the list of topics can be found here).”

Instead of redoing one topic, I decided to just do ten. Since it’s Top TEN Tuesday, and it’s the TENTH birthday. It… had to be ten today.

And so, here’s a list of 10 previous Top Ten Tuesday prompts and my answers to fit them!

Clicking on the book covers will take you to their Goodreads pages! Any sequels will be linked to the first book to avoid spoilers!

The Bookwyrm's Den

Sammie over at The Bookwyrm’s Den is a top tier book blogger. If ever there was one to be worshipped, like the Empress of Dragons (and soon THE WORLD!!) that she is, it’s Sammie. Reading Sammie’s posts always put me in a good mood, and always reminds me that no matter how strong my TBR looks with all its eerie glowing, I am a fearsome Bookwyrm, and she has bestowed upon me great tips on hiding the over flow of my TBR into unfindable void pockets in the corners of cupboards and closets, so it can’t stab me. 😌

No one will ever know the true extend of my TBRs power. No one.

  1. Redoing 10 different past TTT topics? So smart!
    oooh, Sorcery of Thorns! Still haven’t read that yet, but hopefully soon!
    And The Bookwyrm’s Den! Yessss, Sammie’s book blog is also one of my favs! Her narration always makes me laugh
    And totally with ya on adoring the enemy-to-lovers trope! All the great tension it provides—I firmly believe the trope will never get old and that we can always have more of it 😀

    Here’s my TTT on Fantasy Standalones if ya wanna check it out:


  2. OH MY GOSH, I LOVE THIS IDEA. And now I’m low-key jealous that I didn’t do it this week, because pffft, you’re right, the 10’s are so perfect. How did I not see it?

    I may or may not be in the same place with City of Brass (okay, yes, I totally am). I haven’t read Beyond a Darkened Shore, but yup, that found its way to my TBR just now. I am forever and always up for some good enemies-to-lovers.

    And OMG, thank you for choosing me as your favorite blogger. T_T I’m having so many ugly emotions. What have you done to me?! I’m leaking. D:That’s it. It’s official. When I take over the world, I’m giving you your own country or continent or something.


  3. I was going to do a similar list but then I decided on something else.

    Aurora Rising is a great cover but sadly I don’t want to read that series. I’m slightly interested in Wicked Fox because it reminds me of a Korean drama but I don’t think I’lll read it though.

    Have a lovely day.


  4. The Wicked King had one of the best cliffhangers ever! Though I can say that now that I’ve read The Queen of Nothing of course, before that it was one of the most painful cliffhangers ever 🙂
    Also, I love Sorcery of Thorns, Aurora Rising and Wicked Fox. And I definitely need to read Beyond a Darkened Shore now that I know it features an enemies-to-lovers trope!
