Top Ten Tuesday – The ‘Happy Birthday to Me’ Edition

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is supposed to be Books I’d Give Different Titles To (and tell us what title you’d pick!), but as is usually the case with topics like this, I completely blanked out and couldn’t think of a single book I’d like to give a different title.  So I decided to go rogue.   Since today is my birthday (yay!) and I almost always get cash and a load of gift cards (even bigger yay!!), I decided it would be fun to share some books I’m hoping to be able to purchase with my birthday money.  I’m sure I won’t get enough to purchase all of these, but hopefully I can get a few of them anyway.

    Happy Birthday, Suzanne 🥳 Hope you have an amazing day ahead! Love this list that you’ve made for today’s TTT. I also completely blanked on it and don’t know what topic to choose otherwise for it. It was definitely a tough prompt this week 😂I want to read SO many of these books — some I already have on my shelf and others I can’t wait to get. The Whisper Man and Silent Patient were great reads though. Hope you enjoy and manage to get all of them 😍

    A very Happy Birthday for next week – and aren’t books the BEST present?? I like the look of Ninth House and the American Royals is probably full of fun, as I read and enjoyed McGee’s The Thousandth Floor series.

    Happy birthday Suzanne (from a fellow Libra)! Hope it’s wonderful! I have not ready any of these but they look fascinating. I can think of a different title for a book I recently read. It was titled Educated by Tara Westover. Have you read it by chance? I would like to rename it Survived 😀
    Hope you get some cake along with those new books!
