Top Ten Tuesday: Characters that I liked from Non-Favorite/disliked books This one is tricky, but we had fun thinking back through to books that we didn’t like (and probably vented a lot about).
"This was the common criminal pursuit of all contemporary humankind. Give my child an Ikea desk and twelve hours a day of sedentary typing. This will mean success for me, them, our family, our lineage." ~ Dave Eggers, Heroes of the Frontier
“Because," said the swallow man. "A friend is not someone to whom you give the things you need when the world is at war. A friend is someone to whom you give the things that you need when the world is at peace.”
We divided this one up between each other and it was honestly hard to pare it down to five books each. But we managed somehow. As always, thanks to That Artsy Reader Girl for this Top Ten Tuesday!
“Many people fear they might be crazy at some point in their lives, but it requires a healthy dose of sanity to think there's a chance you might be crazy. It's only when you think there is no chance whatsoever that you should be worries. Only you won't be worried because you'll be crazy.”
It was tough to narrow down our list for this installment of Top Ten Tuesday. There have been so many books we’ve read even in the last year or so that we thought we’d hate but loved, or that we were really hopeful for but hated. Thanks to That Artsy Reader girl for continuing on the Top Ten Tuesday tradition!
