Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a Thanksgiving freebie. I decided to go for ten bookish things that I’m thankful for. This is either authors, people or things in my life that I associate with my love of reading.
My mum- My mum taught me how to read when I was four years old. I ‘blame’ her for my love of books. My mum still loves reading now and I really do think she instilled a love of reading into me!
My sister- My sister and fellow book blogger Bibliobeth read to me a lot when we were younger. Even now most of our conversations are book or blog related and I LOVE that.
My class- I am a primary school teacher. I teach Year 2. They are 6-7 year olds. They didn’t like reading at the start of term (September), but they’re already showing much more interest in reading and books. I love it.
My kindle- I’m definitely more of a real book girl, but my kindle is so useful for a long journey or holiday.
The bookish community- I adore how welcoming the book blogging community is. I felt welcomed immediately. Book nerds unite!
Book blogs- I am inspired by so many book bloggers and get so many wonderful book recommendations from my blogging friends. Forever grateful, even if my TBR pile doesn’t agree!
Matt Haig and Reasons To Stay Alive- I think everyone that has or has had depression, or knows someone that does should read this wonderful book.
Roald Dahl- I used to love Roald Dahl as a child and I’m loving reading his books to the children in my class. They lap it up!
Enid Blyton- Enid Blyton was a huge part of my childhood. I haven’t reread any of her work yet, but I’m sure it would give me the warm fuzzies if I did!
Louise O’Neill- Louise O’Neill is a raw and real voice in YA. I really appreciate what she’s doing. Check out her two books!
