Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. I thought this would be a fun way to share a condensed version of potential rambles and thoughts that I have.
This Week’s Theme:
Top Ten Favourite TTT’s
To Write About
To celebrate 5-years of the Top Ten Tuesday meme, the prompt today looks at blogger-favourites. I calculated that since starting TTT, I’ve only missed 12 weeks of posts (65/77). That’s pretty intense if you quantify it like that—and I implore you do the same and give yourself a pat on the back for doing this week-in and week-out!
I’m just going through my index of Top Ten Tuesday posts to find completed topics that jump out at me (note: a lot of these topics may actually be adapted from that week’s original prompt). Not listed in any order.
You know when a character/villain does something absurd or life-threatening and you wish they could suffer that same hardship (and you’re like “lol karma, bitch”). Yup, that’s how my brain functions.
Any time I see food being referenced, I am overwhelmed by the desire to stuff myself with said eats. We’re all secretly foodies at heart, you know?
For day-or-night time talk show hosts like Conan, Ellen, or even the older Jerry Springer, there’s a certain level of charisma needed to pull such a role off. What character do you think could transition into the entertainment lifestyle?
This post lists my behind-the-scenes blogging mentality as I go about this wonderful journey. It is also the post that first listed the quest to find a male co-blogger to bro-out with (it’s in progress, sort of). However, it is also the post that sparked the brainchild of starting the He Said, She Said feature with Rachel @ Confessions of a Book Geek, which I know hasn’t seen the light of day recently but it’ll be back eventually (I’m sure). If you’re interested, you can take a look at our series so far on Sex in YA Fiction, Sex in [Adult] Fiction, and Sex in Erotic Fiction (i.e. BDSM).
If you didn’t know already, I love me some television. The scope of this post looked at the crazy bananas and feels on shows like Orphan Black, why I ship Gendrya in Game of Thrones, Caroline’s evolution on TVD, and FitzSimmons being everything on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D—and many more!
“Guys don’t read this genre, enjoy these protagonists, or read at all.” How often have you heard this? I think these sentiments are half-baked and something that can be challenged if you just find the right book, manga, or comic at the right time to read.
This list was my version of books I’ve (and some buds) have read during 2014. It reads like an award show (but not really). I’m probably going to end up creating more categories this year (for the categories I’m not familiar with) so if you’re interested in taking part, do let me know and I’ll write myself a note.
You throw yourself into SF/F worlds all the time but wouldn’t it be cool to see a time lapse of how the terrain and landscape changes? For example, assuming they use the same building for the arena—how about a 75-year time lapse of the construction and destruction of the arenas? Sounds pretty awesome to me!
Another television-ish post! This list was just a wonderful compilation of female leads that jumped out of the screen and felt extremely real and broke the conventions of female archetypes.
A rant about clichés in YA-Fiction. What could be more fun?
Thanks TTT, for giving me a prompt to connect to the community and all these rad individuals around the world. I swear by the power of TTT to build bridges and make those connections. A lot of the people I speak to on the daily were met through this meme, so I encourage you to keep posting those lists and commenting on others–your next friend might be on the other side of that list!
