Oh, right! It’s Top Ten Tuesday! Silly me; I almost forgot. Actually, this is turning into more of a Top Ten Wednesday thing for me. I’m sorry I’m always late, but I’m just so busy!!!! Rawr!!!! Ahhhh!!!! Anyway, now that I’m done having a stress-freak out, we need to talk business. Actually, I’m gonna’ ramble on and on and on, and you’re gonna’ sit here and pretend to be interested. Sounds fun? Good.
Amy and I want to expand the types of posts we do. For example, we’re currently working on a post that isn’t related to books at all! The horror!!!! I know, guys, but just hang in there for a moment because it isn’t as bad as it looks. Do you trust me? Good. Anyways, it’s just a fun little post dedicated to Spring. Amy and I both wrote poems and took picture, and I also made a few drawings. We’re thinking about these fun posts about once a month. I think we’re gonna’ call them Thoughts On A Whim, and then whatever the topic is will be after it. Because this one is dedicated to Spring, it’s going to be called Thoughts On A Whim… Spring! We also had another idea to let you get to know us better. Disclaimer: The idea you’re about to hear next has absolutely nothing to do with the meme Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. These are entirely separate, and by no means are we trying to take credit for or steal their amazing idea. Ready to hear the idea?
Well… we thought we might do a few posts (Again, also unrelated to books. I’m so sorry; it pains me to do this.) about ourselves in the form of a Top Ten list. Like, Top Ten Things I Like to do other than Reading, or Top Ten Favorite Songs. Stuff along the line of that. And then, you guys can tell us your favorite things and we’ll bond and become one big, happy family! It’ll be just like Barney and Friends! “I love you, you love me…” Hey, why isn’t anyone else singing? Why are you all just standing there? Why are you staring at me like I’m the weird one? Why are you slowly backing away? Is that taser really necessary? Pshaw, you guys are no fun!
I honestly have no idea what that was… I am so sorry. I hope our blog is a lot cooler than Barney and Friends… and whatever I just did there.
So anyway… please leave a comment below or email us or something and tell us what you think! Ok, so this is already pretty long, so I better get started on the reason I’m writing this post. Or I just ramble and talk about random stuff the whole time? Random stuff you say? That’s what I was thinking, too. Wait, why is that tomato in your hand? I mean, I like to eat a lot too, but that doesn’t mean I just eat tomatoes raw. At least put some dressing on it! Wait, why are you throwing tomatoes at me? I thought we were friends! “I love you, you love me…” Nothing a little Barney can’t fix. Ah, man, not the taser again…
Guessing by your previous, totally rude reaction, I’m guessing you want me to get to the point. Well, I have a few things to say about that… Put the dangerous fruit down, people! I was just kidding! 🙂
Anyway… this week’s topic is…. Top Ten Books You’ll Probably Never Read. This was a hard one for me. A real struggle. But I did it for you guys. You’re welcome. 🙂
1. Eclipse and Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer
I mean, I read the first two at age six and I wasn’t allowed to read the rest for fear of ruining my young, delicate six-year-old mind. Looking back, I don’t really see anything wrong with the Twilight series, but it’s totally cliche and I probably won’t read the rest of the series. I’m probably better off that way. Sorry, you single Twilight fan out there!
3. (The last one counted as two. I’m that sneaky, man. I should be a ninja. Ok, that wasn’t even funny. I’m boring you… I’m gonna’ stop now. Probably should if I fear for my health. Getting tased that many times is not good for my bodily well-being.)
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
It’s not that I don’t want to read this book, it’s just that I probably will never, ever get around to it. Enough said.
4. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Don’t get me wrong, I love books like this, but I tried read this and I clearly failed since it made this list. By the twentieth page, I could not continue. I mean, I love the Delirium series by this very same author but did not feel the same way about this book.
5. Fifty Shades of Gray
Give me one good reason to read this book? Wait, actually don’t. If you’re going to defend this book, I’m not sure if we can be friends. No Barney for you!
6. The Horrible Henry books by an equally horrible author (Suzy Kline)
I never would have read these books anyway, but my little brother made me watch the movie… long story. Worst. Movie. Ever. I lost a part of my brain that fateful day, and I will never get it back.
7. Miles to Go by Miley Cyrus
However agreed to publish this “book” must have lost a bet, or been drunk, or something. Either that, or they have a horrible problem. They must have destroyed themselves in the book world. No sympathy.
8. First Step 2 Forever by Justin Bieber
The fact that an actual number is in the title should tell you something. If that’s not a big-enough clue, look at the author!!!! See number seven (Notice how I didn’t use a number and actually typed it out; amazing, isn’t it?!?!?!)
9. Being Jordan: My Autobiography by Katie Price
I like how it’s an autobiography written by a different person…
10. The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I’m a Love-aholic.
Doesn’t this look like a lovely example of classic American literature?! Or more accurately, an example of what is wrong with the world?!?!?! Let’s take a look at the author’s name, shall we? Jennifer Love Hewitt. Doesn’t that just roll of the tongue? Give me a break. And that lovely cover. Wouldn’t you just love to have your young toddler to stumble upon that?
And this has been the worst and hardest thing I have ever done… I’m in a bad mood now. I’m gonna’ go talk to Amy and look up puppies. Bye, guys!
