Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Am Thankful For

Posted November 26, 2013 by Michael @ Knowledge Lost in Top Ten Tuesday / 0 Comments

toptentuesdayIt’s Tuesday again which means time for another round of Top Ten Tuesday; I like joining in of this meme because I have a set topic to work with. Top Ten Tuesday is a book blogger meme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week the theme is: Ten Books I Am Thankful For. Thanksgiving is such an American event; but I’m going to jump on board with this theme because I want something to post. I’m thankful for the following books because of many different reasons.

  • Frankenstein by Mary Shelley – this is my all-time favourite and plays a big part in developing my passion for books.
  • Hey! Nietzsche! Leave Them Kids Alone! by Craig Schuftan – for developing my passion in learning and books.
  • Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart – I have strong memories of this book and one of the first books I tried to read and critically analyse.
  • American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis – I didn’t think much of this book but my analysis of this novel really surprised me and made me think I could be a better reader.
  • Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky – still one of my favourite books and still happy with the review I wrote for this one.
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – I put off reading Austen but when I finally read this, so much was opened up to me about her style and wit.
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë – so romantic.
  • Swimming Home by Deborah Levy – the first book I read and immediately wanted to read again.
  • You Are Not So Smart by David McRaney – for giving me a current thirst for non-fiction.
  • Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad – because I found it harder to read than Infinite Jest but I defeated it, I understood it and I got some great stuff out of it.
