Book I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time

I totally spaced that today’s Tuesday so I’m posting this a little late. Better late than never, right?

This week’s prompt is a freebie and I’ve decided to go with a topic that I missed participating in. The prompt I chose is “Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time.” Here are my top ten books:

I absolutely adore all of these books. I loved the feeling of wonder, excitement, and anticipation that I felt when I read them the first time. I’ve reread all of them except two and there’s still a sense of excitement and anticipation, and it’s not as strong as when I read them the first time. I’ll still reread them, though, because I love the stories and the characters.

What about you? What books do you wish you could read again for the first time? Do we have any in common?

I learned in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) that life is full of dialectics, or two opposing truths. In this case, the two opposing truths are: 1) I don’t agree with JKR’s stance regarding trans people, and 2) I still love Harry Potter.

Summery Book Covers

This week’s prompt is “Book Covers that Feel Like Summer” and was submitted by Ellie from Curiosity Killed the Bookworm. This is pretty straight forward. Here are my top ten summery covers of books on my TBR:

You may have noticed a theme. Nothing means summer more to me than sailing with my husband. I love the water and I love the beach.

What about you? What are your favorite summery book covers? Do we have any in common?

Most Anticipated Books Releasing in the Second Half of 2022

Another prompt that’s hard for me because I don’t really pay attention to release dates unless they’re books I’m REALLY looking forward to. With that being said, here are ten six books I’m looking forward to releasing later this year:

What about you? Which books are you anticipating later this year? Do we have any in common?

Books on My Summer 2022 TBR

This week’s prompt is hard for me because I’m a mood reader. I might plan to read specific books because either they fit a challenge, they’re for book club, or I just want to read them. The problem is if I’m not in the mood, there’s no amount of obligation that can force me to read a book. With that being said, here are ten books I’d like to read this spring, mood permitting:

The first six of these ten are books I haven’t read yet and ones I really want to read. The two Narnia books are because I’m a bit behind on the Narniathon, and the two Harry Potter books are because I started a reread of the series in 2020 and I didn’t get to the last two.

What about you? Which books are on your Summer 2022 TBR? Do we have any in common?

Books on my Amazon Wishlist

This week’s prompt seems very strange to me. (I didn’t realize this was a biannual TTT tradition or that it coincided with Giftmas in July when I first wrote this post.)

Sure, I have books on my Amazon wishlist and I don’t expect anyone to buy a book for me. I created my wishlist for my husband and friends so they can get me books I want for my birthday or Christmas. Otherwise, it seems a little bit forward to ask my blog readers to buy me a book for a TTT prompt. Am I being weird about this?

For the sake of participating in the prompt, here are the top ten books on my Amazon wishlist (no link to my wishlist):

Favorite Animals from Books

This week’s prompt is “Books I Wish Had an Epilogue.” My brain isn’t working like it should because I’ve been down with COVID for the past week. Not fun. And, I honestly don’t remember which books have an epilogue or not. I’ve decided to do a past topic that I didn’t participate in instead. The topic is “Favorite Animals from Books.” Here are my top ten nine favorite animals/creatures from books:

Aslan

The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis

Pan

His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman

Dobby

Harry Potter by JK Rowling

Hedwig

Harry Potter by JK Rowling

Solovey

The Winternight Trilogy by Katherine Arden

Deb Grib
