I feel like I’m jumping onto a moving train, joining this so late. But I’m going to be Dauntless and do it anyway.
Today’s TTT, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, is to look back and pick your ten favorite TTT topics ever. Since this is my first time participating, I am going to include one or two things that fit the topic (you’ll see what I mean when I start). The topics will be in order, with 1 being my favorite of them all.
10: Books I Wish I’d Read as a Kid. When I was younger I was obsessed with this really long series called Warriors by Erin Hunter, so I never got to experience the normal childhood stories. The two series I most regret not picking up are The Chronicles of Narnia and The Spiderwick Chronicles.
9: Tough Issues. There are a lot of great books out there exploring some difficult topics. My personal favorites are The Perks of Being a Wallflower and I’ll Give You the Sun.
8: Books That Made Me Cry. I have definitely shed many a tear over my books. The one that comes to mind immediately is Allegiant.
7: Authors I would DIE to Meet. Honestly, meeting the author of any of the books I’ve read and liked would be a dream come true. However, if I had to choose just one it would have to be Maggie Stiefvater, the author of the Shiver series, The Scorpio Races, and The Raven Cycle.
6: Sequels I’m Dying to Read. There are a lot of books whose sequels I am anxiously awaiting, but hands down the two I am looking forward to the most are Winter and The Raven King.
5: Favorite Covers. I am certainly a sucker for pretty covers, especially when they match the rest of their series. A few of my favorites are The Heroes of Olympus series, particularly The House of Hades, and the new Harry Potter covers (especially Order of the Pheonix and Prisoner of Azkaban).
4: Villains. I love a good villain, especially when they are well developed and thought out. My favorite, because of his complexity (and also fanfiction) is Draco Malfoy.
3: Characters I’d Name My Kids After. I am constantly revising my future childrens’ names after I finish a great book. The two names I will not sway on, however, are Percy (first name) from the PJO and HOO series, and Noah (first or middle name) from I’ll Give You the Sun.
2: Favorite Fictional Couples. I have only one OTP, possibly because it is the first one I ever encountered: Percy and Annabeth, from the PJO and HOO series.
1: Fictional Crushes. I love a lot of characters, including Chaol Westfall (Throne of Glass) and Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter), but when I have to pick one I have never and will never hesitate to pick Percy Jackson (PJO and HOO).
So there you have it! I’m so excited to continue doing these. Feel free to leave a comment with your favorite TTTs!
