This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic is a freebie! I could not come up with anything of my own so asked my daughter to share her favorite books so far this year. Here are Mouse's top five books of 2022:
The Apothecary Diaries, Vol. 6 by Nekokurage, Natsu Hyuuga, Itsuki Nanao, Touco Shino
Keeper of the Lost Cities (#1) by Shannon Messenger
The Forbidden Library by Django Wexler, illustrated by Alexander Jansson
A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic #1) by V.E. Schwab
The Golden Door (Three Doors #1) by Emily Rodda
As a bonus (and to round out the list to 10), I asked Mouse if she had any reading tips she would like to share. Here are her five tips:
- Don't dogear the pages.
- Don't listen to music while reading because it can be distracting, especially if someone is singing out loud next to you (Mouse swears she doesn't mean me, but, let's be honest, she probably means me).
- Try to read the book before you watch the movie to avoid spoilers.
- Be careful reading around cats. They climb all over you and the book, and they hit you in the face with their tails repeatedly so you can't concentrate on actually reading.
- Try not to read when you should be doing your homework or you will forget to do it.
