Top Ten Tuesday # 25 (Books which Feature Characters with Great Families)

TOP TEN TUESDAY is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

I had quite a few problems coming up with a topic for today’s TTT. My mind went blank and I could not think of a thing. And, being completely honest, I even thought about not doing a post today but I wanted to upload something so here we are. I don’t even have 10 picks. This is embarrassing….

  • Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea. I’m picking two characters from this one. Anna is raised by her mum and because of that personal situation (if you wanna know more, go read the book *wink, wink*) she is outcast. Her mum is so nice and lovely and, in short, a great parent. The same applies to Jessica’s mother.
  • Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling. Do I really need to name them? Don’t you know already of which characters I’m talking about? Well, if you are new to the party, The Weasleys are the best family not only to themselves but to their friends too. The way they’ve loved Harry as one of their own was touching.
  • To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. There is something about Lara Jean’s family that makes me smile. Really. And it’s probably one of the best (YA) family dynamics I’ve read about in a while.

  • Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. Lola was raised by her uncle and his husband. I really appreciated how Perkins included a homoparental family and how they were very supportive with Lola.
  • Wonder by R. J. Palacio. How many times I’ve raved about the greatness that is Auggie’s family? So, for this time, I would save you from it and tell you to go and read Wonder. Like, seriously. Do it.
  • The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. Technically Hans and Rosa aren’t Liesel’s relatives but by the end of this story, the reader can’t really deny they are indeed Liesel’s family. 

Sorry this wasn't very insightful or anything but I hope next week's TTT could be better. Feel free to link me your TTTs in the comment section below and I'll try to look them up! :)

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

Reading Diary | February Books | 2018

Feb, 1st - 15:15. Finished the second book in the first volume of the Riyria Revelations and I was pleasantly surprised. I still think the world building is the weakest thing about the story because it's not greatly developed but the story is well-written and entertaining. I'm planning on continuing reading the series because now I'm intrigued enough to want to know how everything will unfold. Feb, 7th - 10:33.  I'm finally prepared to go and see the movie Call Me By Your Name because I just finished reading the novel. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It is a celebration of love and an exploration of sex and identity. It's quite explicit though so if you feel uncomfortable with that keep it in mind if you're planning on reading it. My full review of the book is HERE (I also talk a little bit about the movie).
