Top Ten Tuesday Animals from books






Hi! Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday @thatartsyreadergirl. A love of lists inspires this weekly meme and bringing the book blogging community together. Each Week, Jana will make a post, and we book bloggers will write a response to the post. If we’re feeling like being different, we can use a different topic. This week our topic is animals from books. This topic as submitted by Paige @paigesquared and Jennifer Y @never2many2read.

1- Grover from The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan

When I saw this prompt, I knew my favorite satyr from Percy Jackson would be on the list. Grover is Percy’s friend, but he is half-human, half-goat, so he fits this prompt. I love how sassy he is, and how much he cares for Percy.

2- Winnie the Pooh from Winnie the Pooh by A. A. Mine

I’ve maybe read these books as a child but I don’t remember them. Pooh is on this list because I love his personality in the media I’ve seen. He’s so much fun and I love him a lot. Also, I have one I got from Disney World when I was 18 that I still sleep with every night.

3- Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White  

I have not read this book yet, but I have plans to read it. I watched the film version of this as a child, and I fell in love with her. She’s another one that I knew would need to be on this list when I got the prompt.

4- The White Rabbit from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

I love Alice in Wonderland. I’ve read the book and watched the movies many times. I have always loved the white rabbit as a character. 

5-Babar from The Story of Babar by Jean de Brunhhoof

Oh, my goodness, Babar is a favorite elephant from my childhood. I love him and I feel like few people know about him.

6- Gus the Theatre Cat from a poem by T. S. Eliot

I needed to include the theatre cat from Cats. Cats is something I enjoy, and I like some songs from the musical. Gus is so cool and I love his character.

If you know me, you knew I needed to include a cat here from Cats the musical. My favorite cat

7- Black Beauty from Black Beauty by Anna Sewell

This is a story about a horse, and I love the book. I read this in college and I loved the story because I always a fan of horses. This is a sweet story about a horse and the owner.

8-Genevieve from Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans

I love Madeline and I have for a long time. I needed to include the dog from these books on this list. 

9- Clifford from Clifford the Big Red Dog by Norman Bridwell

Clifford is so cute and so cool. I just love him and Emily Elizabeth.

10- Callie from The House on the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune

This is the adorable cat from this novel. She is awesome.

Blogs I used when making my choices

  3. I think this is the first blog I see where you do different animals. Which I probably would have done if I'd stuck to the topic. LOL

    Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.

  4. I can't believe I forgot about Clifford. I wanted a big red dog of my own so badly when I was a kid, haha.

Top Ten Tuesday –Favorite Couples (Valentine’s Day /Love Freebie)

  Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ thatartsyreadergirl. . This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. I love doing this meme because it gives me a chance to bond with other bloggers. Every week, Jana will post a topic, and we bloggers will make a post with our list on the topic, or a different one. This week it was Valentines / Love, so I wanted to do a post on favorite couples. I may have done a similar post last year, but I know that there are some new couples on this list.  1- Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy- Pride & Prejudice   This is the only classic couple on this list. I enjoy their relationship because the two characters have little in common, and yet by the end of the novel, they make it work. As you read Pride & Prejudice, you get to see these two find the love each of them was missing. 2- Cath and Levi–Fangirl One of my favorite YA novels needed to appear on this list. I love Cath and Levi because they balanc

Top Ten Tuesday-Books I want to reread

Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by  Jana@thatartsyreadergirl . This meme was born out of a love of lists and brings the book blogging community together. Each week Jana posts a topic, and we book bloggers write a response. This week, it's books I want to reread.  1- Pride & Prejudice   This is a classic I’ve read twice, I think? At least once, anyway, I love this novel so much. My favorite character in the book is Lizzie. I also miss the story. Maybe in 2021? Anyway, I miss this book and I want to reread it. 2- Foolish Hearts   I read this book in the summer of 2019. I had been in a bit of a slump at the time, so this pulled me out of it. I read the novel in about two weeks, and I just loved it so much. My favorite character is Claudia, and I want to revisit the book. That this involves theatre is another reason I need to reread this book ASAP. 3- After Anatevka   I know I talk about this book so much on the blog. I read this a few years ago now, and I want to revisit the charact

Top Ten Tuesday + one Honorable Mention Books I should have read in 2021

Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ .thatartsyreadergirl . Every week, Jana will post a prompt and we book bloggers will make a list as a reply to the prompt, or a past one if we’re not feeling the current one. This bookish meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. This week, our prompt is books we wanted to read in 2020, but for some reason or other, we never got around to reading them. This year, I plan on reading a few of these as a part of my reading challenges. Classics 1- The Secret Garden 2- A Little Princess 3- Anne of Green Gables   I tell myself every year I will read more classics. I’ve been telling myself for years that I need to read these three books, and this will finally be the year. I can’t wait to read these and see what I think about them. Fantasy  4- A Curse So Dark and Lonely 5- The Ten Thousand Doors of January 6- A Starless Sea   Fantasy is a genre I read a lot of last year. I never got t
