Top Ten Tuesday: Frequently Used Title Words in YA Books

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

It has now been moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl.

This is such a fun topic and one that I found myself thinking about at random too, there really are some words out there that show up all the time in YA titles! I just went onto Goodreads and looked at all of the books I’ve both read and added to come up with this list. There are probably a few I missed though! Also some of these have a lot of titles and some only have a few, I wanted to try and think of some more unique words that show up quite a bit instead of the typical: you, me, love, etc.

This is going to be a bit shorter since it’s pretty much just a list and I don’t have much to say about each individual word or title!

These are in no particular order.

1. How many books do you usually read at once?

I usually just try and stick to one unless it’s slow then I’ll read 2 at a time. But never more than 2, I do not have the attention span for that!

2. If you’re reading more than one book at a time, how do you decide when to switch books?

Once one book slows down, if I start feeling like I’m slogging through I’ll switch books.

3. Do you ever switch bookmarks while you’re partway through a book?

Sometimes, but for the most part I just stick with the one I was using.

4. Where do you keep the book(s) you’re currently reading?

I carry my books around in my bag wherever I go and then when I’m at home they usually sit on my nightstand.

5. What time of day do you spend the most time reading?

Usually in the evening after dinner when I have my free time.

6. How long do you typically read in one sitting?

Depends on the book! If it’s a slower book I can maybe sit there for half an hour or 20 minutes. If I’m actually enjoying the book I can read for a few hours in one sitting.

7. Do you read hardbacks with the dust jacket on or off?

Dust jacket on, unless it’s an odd one that isn’t fitted to the book properly then I’ll take it off. But pretty much every time I’ll just leave it on, it doesn’t bother me.

8. What position do you mainly use to read?

Sitting up, sometimes I’ll by laying down and reading on my side but then I start to doze off so I usually try and just sit up while reading.

9. Do you take the book you’re currently reading with you everywhere you go?

Yes! You never know when you’ll be able to squeeze in some extra reading time!

10. How often do you update your Goodreads progress on the book you’re currently reading?

I used to do quite often but now I don’t do it at all. I only go on Goodreads to update what I started reading and then when I finish.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Love That I Have Under 2,000 Goodreads Ratings

Top Ten Tuesday(9)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.

It has now been moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is a freebie, so I went through the extensive list of previous topics on The Broke and The Bookish (link above) and picked this one! I’m always a fan of receiving and giving underrated book recommendations, and having under 2,000 ratings is a good standard for being underrated I feel. So here’s some books I loved that need some more love!
