Top Ten Tuesday: The Leaders

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week is all about the leaders. It’s about the characters that have that charisma and ability to take charge, in the good and bad moments. Some characters fall into this role naturally, but others find that they are unwittingly thrust into a position they never wanted.

Top Ten Tuesday: Back to School Special

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Confession. I was not a reader in school. In fact my “great rebellion” was to not read the required books that was set for our class, well until I had no choice but to read it. Why?

Plus with every book I was conscious of the fact that I had to analyse and decode the book and because of that I never felt like I could just read the book for the sake of enjoy it.
