This week's Top Ten Tuesday is "Top Ten Posts On Your Blog That Would Give The BEST Picture of YOU (as a reader and a person -- so pick the 10 best reviews/posts that you wish every potential reader of your blog would see!)". This is a really hard one! Oh, the pressure. But I'm going to try to find the top posts that really represent me as a person and a reader. Please note: if this picture isn't pretty then, um, please disregard. Now excuse me while I dig into my archives...
1. Review of Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright and David Leslie Johnson. This is my first ever post. I hated the book so much I finally got off my butt and created the blog I'd been thinking about for ages - just so I could get my rant on. I promise I'm not as feral as that suggests.
2. My five favourite books of all time. Obviously, this says a lot about me as a reader!
3. Bookish Buys. This is a regular feature on my blog, combining two of my favourite things - books and stationery (and other assorted merchandise). The post linked here is my first in the series.
4. My favourite mini-series adaptations. I'm obsessed with book adaptations and feature them pretty heavily on the blog, so this is a good indication of my interests. PS. My favourite movie adaptations are listed here.
5. Five series that defined my childhood. These are the books that shaped me as a reader (and probably as a person).
6. A tribute to Charles Dickens. He's my favourite author. 'Nuff said.
7. Book Vs Movie: The Neverending Story. Remember how I mentioned I'm obsessed with adaptations? I have a tendency to over-analyse them. This is just one example.
8. Review of On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. One of my favourite books from one of my favourite authors. This review is pretty much just me fangirling, but y'know, that's me.
9. A love story. I wrote this for my wedding in May. You could see it as either really sweet or totally vomitous.
10. Review of If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won't) by Betty White. This is not so much a review as it is a recount of the time I waited in line for over two hours to spend approximately 20 seconds with one of my idols, Betty White. Fangirling ensued.
