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 week’s topic is Unpopular Bookish Opinions.

I suspect some of these might irk my fellow readers, but here we go!

  1. Reading outside is not fun. I live in the desert and being outside for any long period of time sounds like torture to me.
  2. Reading while on vacation is not fun. It doesn’t allow me to be present on my trip and appreciate where I am, etc.
  3. I will never read some writers, no matter what.Β But I won’t list them here.
  4. No bookmark? No problem. There’s nothing wrong with using a non-bookmark as a bookmark (receipts, pens, coasters, other books…)
  5. Writing is okay. There’s nothing wrong with writing in a book that you own. If any, it will give you something to laugh at years later.
  6. Dog-earing is okay. Just not the pages of a library book.
  7. Schools should stick to contemporary literature. Teaching contemporary literature to high school students fosters their love of reading; teaching only classic literature does the opposite
  8. Re-reading books is not a waste of time.
  9. Anyone can read whatever they want. Children’s/Young Adult/Teen literature is as much for younger readers as it is for adult readers and vice versa.
  10. Reading is reading. There is no such thing as a trashy book, or guilty pleasure reading. Reading = reading, end of story

…and those are just a handful of my unpopular bookish opinions. My musings on these posts is all in good fun, promise! πŸ™‚

  1. Reading outside here in Toronto is only fun for a very small portion of the year. 99% of the time, I vastly prefer being inside to avoid sunburn, bug bites, frostbite, and the many other hazards of going outdoors for too long.

    My TTT.

    1. I can only imagine! We have a few weeks of mild weather here in Arizona around October and again in March but it’s so fleeting. If I lived in a milder climate I think I would enjoy reading outside a lot more πŸ™‚

  2. #10 resonates with me on another level lol This is basically what i had on my post too!! YASSSSS I don’t think people should be judged for what they read – Like what lot of older readers deal with when they read YA or Middle Grade, me included. A lot of great authors write brilliant stories in these genres and a lot have surprised me which is why I will always love it.

    #2 Is also another great point! I can’t believe that I didn’t think of that! I completely agree with you though. Sometimes I do pack some books for reading during a vacation but the most reading I may do would probably be on a flight – Other times, it’s just way too chaotic and trust me, vacations with my family are pretty intense since we try to cover a lot (We actually prepared a day to day complete itinerary for our last trip cuz we extra haha)

    Absolutely love this post Hannah! Thank you for sharing your thoughts! πŸ™‚

    1. Yes! I couldn’t agree more!! I never cease to be amazed by the fantastic YA/Teen books that are out there. And every time I have taken a book on vacation, it has never been touched and just takes up space in my suitcase, haha πŸ™‚
