Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

How it works:

I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.

You’ll find the schedule of upcoming TTT topics below so you can plan ahead. I’ll post a Linky here on the blog each week so you can link up your post (if you want). If you don’t have a blog, post your picks in the comment section below! Have tons of fun talking books and getting to know your fellow bloggers!

NOTE: If a weekly topic is listed as a “freebie”, you are invited to come up with your own topic. Sometimes I will give your topic a theme, such as “love”, a season, or an upcoming holiday. That just means that you can come up with any topic you want that fits under that umbrella.

    Would love to join this, as I have been reading the posts from other bloggers for years now for Top Ten Tuesday. I may not be able to do every prompt but I look forward to getting some done (at least one a month) to change things up on Bookluvrs Haven.

    Thank you for hosting!

      TTT is wonderful, and such a fun way to get to know other bloggers. :) I hope you do join the fun! It’s totally fine if you don’t do each prompt. Whatever works best for you. Hope to see you soon! :)

      Hi Lili! Nice to meet you too! I’m so glad you enjoy TTT, and I’m looking forward to chatting with you soon! :)

    • Jana

      I’m so glad you love TTT. I’m so happy that I get to keep running it even though we’re shutting down TB&TB.

    • Jana

      When I came up with the topic I was thinking of ones from existing books, but you can spin it and make up your own as well!

    • Jana

    I also have been following other bloggers TTT posts for a while. Thank you for hosting, I’m looking forward in taking part this Tuesday.

  5. Eve L (Evilous)

    Glad you are continuing the fun. I just went to get a jump start on this weeks and saw it was closed and got sad until I read further and saw the new home! Yay. Are you creating your own/new icon?

    • Jana

      I’m excited to be continuing things! Yes, my new TTT icon is the yellow, orange, and coral one at the top of this post. Anyone is free (and encouraged) to use it! :)

    • Jana

      We all just decided that our lives had gotten too busy and we were all going in so many different directions that it was time. It was getting harder and harder to connect and post regularly. :)

  6. Rachel

    I’ve just discovered this and I’m already excited :D I’ve been looking for some new ideas for blog posts and I definitely love a list! I hope I can join in the fun :)

    • Jana

      I hope you join us! It’s definitely a lot of fun, and is a wonderful way to make new friends and gain exposure to your own blog. :)

  7. Kat

    I’ve been doing TTT for the past few weeks and it’s been so much fun! So glad it’s continuing and loved doing the theme for this week.

  8. Mai

    I just started a new blog and was thinking what meme to participate in. Settled on TTT! Very excited to see what others will post next week…. c:

    • Jana

      Welcome to the bookish community! I hope you have fun with TTT, and with setting up your new blog. :)

    • Jana

      You make up your own topic that fits the theme of “love”. So you can do anything that has to do with love in honor of Valentine’s Day: favorite romance novels, favorite kissing scenes, favorite anti-love books, favorite hate to love stories, favorite LGBTQ books, book boyfriends/girlfriends, etc. Make sense? :)

  9. Chrystal

    Thanks for taking over and continuing Top Ten Tuesday! I’ll be participating again soon. Love the topic lists you’ve already come up with.
