Happy Tuesday, fellow book friends! Today is another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today is a freebie prompt, so I have decided to discuss books about books! I have been wanting to do this post since I started blogging, and today was a great opportunity to do so! Plus, what is better than a book about a book?
1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
It’s been a while since I read this book, but I remember it being quite good. It is about the book burnings in World War II Germany and a young girl trying to find her way amidst all the chaos. She finds she really loves reading and kind of steals books, but it’s a wonderful story!
2. The Book Jumper by Mechthild Glaser
I have not read this one, but the premise is very interesting! I would love to be able to jump into books as this main character can!
3. Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
I love love love this book! It is beautiful and amazing and really represents all kinds of people. Eliza is an online comic book writer and illustrator, and her story has an incredible influence on her life and this book.
4. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
I read this soooo long ago but it was interesting from what I remember. It is like two stories in one, both telling of a teen author’s journey through publishing and telling the story that she wrote. There are two completely different styles in one story, and somehow they fit together nicely!
5. The Memory Book by Lara Avery
This is a story of a girl who is told she will eventually lose her memory, so she decides to write down her life in a book. Honestly, it sounds rather sad, but I’ve heard it’s a lovely book!
6. Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult
Hey, wouldn’t it be incredible if your favorite book character came to life? This happens to bookworm Delilah in this book, and I can’t even imagine how awesome that would be!
7. Literally by Lucy Keating
It seems this is about a character becoming aware of the fact she is a character in a story and not a real person. I would be quite interested in reading this story, as I have never heard of one quite like this!
8. Traveler by L.E. DeLano
Hey, another one where characters come to life! This is more about characters than books, but I think it wounds quite good!
And… I only have eight today. I’m sure there are many more wonderful books about books, but I want to keep my list short and sweet! 🙂
Have you read any books about books? Did you enjoy any of the books I mentioned? Link me to your TTT!
