While I most definitely have not been an active member of TTT or even WordPress for 5 years I have had a go, or rather, more than 10 goes at the phenomenon that is Top Ten Tuesday by the Broke and the Bookish. While I’m not really a weekly contributor, if something catches my eye, and also coincides with me feeling like writing that day I will do up a post for it.
So I’ve written this week’s Top Ten Tuesday in excerpts from my favourite TTT’s. And only the excerpts with a high level of sass. Also these dates are in an Australian format. Only psychopaths go month-date-year…Jeez.
- Top Ten Literary Confessions (07.07.14)
Titled: My Literary Secrets. Or. Amy and the truth bomb that went off and hurt all the feelings
Excerpt: “Man do I dislike the beach. Sand gets in between the pages of my book, it’s like getting sand in my soul. Fuck off sand.”
- Top Ten Underrated Authors (09.09.14)
Titled: Keep it in your pants readers
Excerpt: “Patterson just slots new names into an old template and publishes these bad boys annually. Also… Alex Cross? Why don’t you just name him Jesus Christ and be done with it.”
- Top Ten Dislikes for Romance in Literature (10.02.15)
Titled: Romance is for saps. And other things I dislike about lit love.
Excerpt: “‘Creamy brown hair’? Now I feel like his hair is made of cream. I’m not attracted to this sensual-cream man. Is this a Cadbury ad?”
Titled: You can’t sit with us!
Excerpt: “Because I honestly feel like she would get along with everyone at the table. And you know what we don’t want at lunch time? ANARCHY!”
Titled: I’ll make a reader of you yet
Excerpt: “But the only opinion I managed to get out of him was: “Ellie’s a bit of a slut.” Thanks Dad.”
Titled: God forbid I get stuck on an island with book characters
Excerpt: “Does this man not ooze necessity? Still not convinced? How about you stare at this gif for the next hour until you are.
Titled: I’ll get to it when I get to it
Excerpt: “Besides the books look quite cute sitting next to each other on the bookshelf and if that isn’t a good enough reason, nothing is.”
Titled: Top Ten T-Oh fuck it’s Wednesday
Excerpt: “Nothing ruins a Tuesday feature post quite like realising it was yesterday.”
- Top Ten Character Driven Novels (07.10.14)
Titled: Characters behind the wheel
Excerpt: “Which sounds exactly like my sigh of annoyance when Bran’s chapter comes along. Seriously (SPOILER) is he learning to become a tree? You can imagine how great this isn’t.”
Titled: I dunno you guys…
Excerpt: “Honestly no other author has sounded so much like a super-villain in the history of the world.”
