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.
This is insane! I mean, I read 100 books last year, and there are no relationships that stand out to me? What do I read for?
Or maybe I’m just not good at making lists. I can’t wait to read your lists so I can see those wonderful relationships that I have forgotten about. Post your links in the comments!
Here we go!
In The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, I really enjoyed watching the relationship between Kvothe and Auri develop. It was a slow building of trust and really helped bring out Kvothe’s human/thoughtful/kind side.
In The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson, I got giddy every time OreSeur and Vin were in the same room together. I’m a sucker for intelligent animals and clever banter.
In The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden, I have to admire the loyalty between brother and sister. Sasha and Vasya go through the wintery version of Hell together, but their love helps them through.
In A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles, little Nina (the girl in yellow) shows Count Rostoff a new way to view the world around him and thus shows him he doesn’t have to be trapped just because he is in prison.
Do we have time to mention the snow in Seattle?
At first I was a little sad that my kids had to miss the snow (since we moved to Texas from Seattle last month) but now I’m actually glad we aren’t smothered by all that ice, snow, and power outages.
If your oven still works you should try making these beautiful scones I found on pinterest. I tried them today and they brush your insides with warmth and happiness and deliciousness. 5 out of 5 people loved them.
I hope everyone is staying warm and healthy and can find a few minutes to read a good book!
