Top Ten Tuesday- Book with theater elements or theater books I've loved

 




Hi! Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday @thatartsyreadergirl. This meme was brought about by our love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana will post a prompt and we readers and bloggers will respond. We also have the option to go rogue and do our own thing. This week was a freebie, and in honor of Broadway coming back this month, and The Tony Awards the other night, I wanted to theme my list to that. For those that might not know, one of my other passions in life is Broadway Musicals, so this theme is very on-brand for me. I put the books by genre. 


Non-Fiction 

1- Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin Manuel Miranda and others 

2- The Great Comet of 1812: The Journey of a New Musical to Broadway


These are two coffee table books I loved. 


Middle Grade

3- Fearless (Fearless Series Book 1) by Mandy Gonzalez

4- The Chance to Fly by Ali Stroker and Stacy Davidowitz

I read these both this year and I loved them so much. I'm actually rereading Fearless next month for the spooky season. 


Young Adult 

5- Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

6- Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills

7- Kate in Waiting by Becky Albertalli

8- What If It's Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

I loved all of these so much. 

Adult

9- All's Well by Mona Awad 

I read it earlier this year and I just loved it, 

To Read


10- The Dear Evan Hansen Coffee-Table Book

I want to read this to find out more about the show. I do have an issue with the show, but I just love the music, and most of the plot, as well as what it did for people with mental illness. I have not seen the movie yet, but I want to.

  5. This is such a clever idea for TTT! I will have to make a note somewhere. Will also take a look at some of your books listed, as an ex theatre girl myself, I am always looking for books with theatre settings. I have actually just started with a new book yesterday with a nice Moulin Rouge type of theme. It's an ARC and I think it's going to be great!

Can't Wait Wednesday -Confessions of a Curious Bookseller

 Hi! Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa  @wishfulendings . This meme is an offshoot of Waiting on Wednesday, which was hosted by  Jill@breakingthespine . The purpose of the meme is to feature books, usually unpublished, that we can't wait to read. This week, I'm featuring Confessions of a Curious Bookseller by Elizabeth Green.

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- Eight Reasons I enjoy reading

Hi! Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday  @ thatartsyreadergirl. This meme was born put a love of lists, and bringing the book blogging community together. Each Week, Jana will post a prompt and we bloggers will make a list based on that prompt. We also have the option to go rogue and do our own thing. This week, our topic is reasons I love reading. I went with eight instead of my usual ten. 1- The escape I know that this might be others reason for reading, but real life is a lot. I love reading because it offers me the opportunity to escape and be taken away from my real-life troubles for a while.  2-Finding new characters to love I love finding a new book filled with new characters that I can call my friends. I know that sounds cheesy, but I’ve always been one that loved to meet all the characters in my favorite books. My favorite characters to meet are the ones that are bookish or ones that have a passion for theatre or music. Once I find a character, I love finding out more about
