TTT: Discworld Quotes

TTTpink

Officially, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Best Character Names, but I struggled to come up with a good variety for my list (mostly Harry Potter). Since a few of my favourite names are from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series (Magrat Garlick, Esmerelda Margaret Note Spelling of Lancre, Moist von Lipwig), I thought I’d roll with that and give you a list of my favourite Discworld quotes instead — See! There’s a link here, I promise! 🙂

 

Ten Top Quotes from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, then what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do the bad things.

TTT: Non-Fiction

TTTpink

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (May 15: Books I Disliked/Hated but Am Really Glad I Read) is one I struggled with (there have been a few of these lately) because, to be honest, if I don’t enjoy a book, I’m not going to be glad I spent time reading it.

The only exception to this are the non-fiction books I read back at university — I didn’t necessarily enjoy them but it was worth it to get my degree. This got me thinking: I rarely ever mention non-fiction on this blog (it’s not something I read a lot of) so I thought, this week I’d share some non-fiction I’ve enjoyed and some that I’m actually really keen to read.

Let me know how you went about this topic — did you switch it up or stick to the topic?

TTT: UNIQUE RETELLINGS

April 17: Freebie (create your own topic) — 11 Unique Retellings

If you’ve been reading my reviews or following my Goodreads activity, it won’t be any surprise to you that I’m a huge fan of retellings of all sorts — classic novels, mythology, fairy tales — I read a lot of them. So for this weeks freebie topic I thought I’d share some of my favourite but I wanted to share some of the more unusual ones: either because of the story the author has chose to retell or because of the spin they’ve put on it.

What’s your favourite retelling?
Which story would you love to see a retelling of but you just haven’t found yet?
