Top Three Thursdays #17 – Books I Wish I Grew Up With

The topic for today (29/06/17) is: Books I Wish I Grew Up With

With the recent celebration of 20 Years of Harry Potter, I began to think about books I wish I’d read as a child. I was introduced to the series pretty late (in 2007, around the time The Deathly Hallows book came out) and I feel like I’d have enjoyed it better if I’d started it when I was younger. Although I picked up The Chronicles of Narnia in fourth grade, Harry Potter in seventh grade and Percy Jackson in eighth grade, here are some other well-known children’s series I want to go back in time and read (Since that’s still not possible, I’m going to coerce my kids to read them while growing up, if I ever have any).

The topic for today (15/06/17) is: The Times I Got Caught Reading

Being an obsessive bookworm, chances are you’ve read books at times and in places you’re supposed to be doing something else. I know I have. ‘Get Caught Reading’ is also a reading initiative supported by the Association of American Publishers (AAP), with May being ‘Get Caught Reading Month’. I don’t live in the United States and neither is it May now, but I thought this would make a great post idea. Here are the “top three” (i.e. most memorable) times I got caught reading.

The topic for today (08/06/17) is: Mystery Series I Want to Complete

These are very popular series that I’ve read a few books from but I want to re-read from starting to finish so I don’t miss out on anything. I had hoped to make June a ‘Mystery Reading Month’, but my plans went a little haywire because my reading mood didn’t cooperate. I still hope to finish these series in 2017, which is super-ambitious, but I’ll try anyway.

The topic for today (01/06/17) is: Sexually Diverse Books I Want to Read

Here’s the thought behind this week’s topic. In India, sex with persons of the same gender is punishable by law. There’s rampant homophobia and a general tendency to not publicly discuss LGBT+ issues or rights. As someone who’s read a lot of books, it feels like a silly notion to me. So far, however, I have only read books where LGBT characters are not the main characters (consciously or unconsciously, I’m not sure). I want to rectify that and these three books are on the top of my ‘Sexually Diverse TBR’.
