(a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish)
This week we have been asked to list the top ten blog posts that are most telling of our personalities. I vary from very serious about the books I read, to passionate about certain topics and occasionally, I allow my cheeky side to come through – I think the more comfortable I become with blogging, the more of that will come out.
1. Wannabe Lisbeth Salander: I read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy at the beginning of the year and got a little obsessed with Lisbeth Salander. She is so cool and smart and doesn’t give a shit about anything. Awesome.
2. A woman’s life: the more I write this blog, the more I realize just how much a woman’s life, roles, expectations placed upon her and those she has of herself, intrigue me. I love books about the way women choose to live their life and books that showcase our strength. I love writing about it too. This post is an article I wrote that shows just that.
3. The article Women Still Can’t Have It All gets me going: see above.
4. Using a toddler book to understand teenagers: I reviewed Harvey Karp PhD.’s Happiest Toddler on the Block and showed its applicability to teaching high school students. I love this post because it was so much fun to write and it really showed me that I can do this.
5. Mothers in Literature: part of my mother’s day gift included time to write (which is so precious) and I remember spending part of that Sunday morning writing this post – it was also included in The Major Genre Daily.
6. Teaching Inspired: I was inspired by another blogger and told a story about reading an entire novel to my English class. Yes. I read every word aloud to a high school English class because some in the class had admitted to never having read a book.
7. I couldn’t finish a book: this has never happened. I hated the protagonist and I really struggled with giving my honest opinion.
8. I get on a soap box: and tell a story about a man who was belittled by his teacher in elementary school.
9. My view on the age-old debate movie vs. book: tough one with movies being so good now and it sometimes depends upon which you experience first.
10. Kate Chopin: I just started reading her this year! And, I love all her writing. The Awakening, Short Stories and other musings.
So far, these are my ten. Any thoughts?
