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 books that grew on us. Some books are a hit from the first chapter but others take their time in building up that attachment. I think those books that get off to a slow starts are the ones that end up staying with us because when we finish it’s easier to appreciate the time it took to lay the foundations that made the books so incredible in the end. Here are the books I grew to love.

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? Because I hated being told what I could or couldn’t read. 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.

So, for this weeks Back to School freebie, instead of setting a required reading list, I thought I’d post a recommended back to school reading list. There’s a little bit of everything in this list so that you can pick and chose a book that suits your reading preferences.

Discussion: Why I Read Fantasy

Fantasy the faculty or activity of imagining impossible or improbable things.

Today is all about fantasy, one of my go to genres. The rise of fantasy is not surprising.

War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it with untrustworthy new allies and the empire as his enemy. Though he has convinced himself that he no longer loves Kestrel, Arin hasn’t forgotten her, or how she became exactly the kind of person he has always despised. She cared more for the empire than she did for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she did for him.

Top Ten Tuesday: Father’s Day Freebie

I am so thankful for this topic because if I hadn’t seen it, I would have forgotten all about Father’s Day. In contrast to the Mother’s Day freebie, I found it a lot easier to find books that feature a father figure. Here are my chosen 10 books that feature a father figure.
