– Top 10 Fave Character Names – 

I initially wasn’t going to participate in this weeks Top 10 Tuesday but thought it would be fun to do a little favourite name countdown ending in a little story about how I actually came to be called Avery (Spoiler: I chose my name and it was literature themed).

Avery

The Truth About Forever

I came across the name Avery for the first time when I read The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. I used to love her books as a teenager and TTAF was the one that really struck a chord with me. While reading the books I discovered the name Avery and loved it. It was beautiful, unique and gender neutral! when choosing a new name for myself I actually didn’t consider Avery at first, but one day the name came back to me out of nowhere and I can’t imagine being called anything else now!

It was really fun thinking about what names I liked in order to write this post. I used to have a really long list of names that I loved, mostly based off of fictional characters, but I lost it many years ago. I should start keeping another one as I couldn’t remember any lol

– Top 10 Video Games –

I’m back with Top 10 Tuesday! I haven’t done it for almost a month partly because I haven’t had much time recently and partly because I wasn’t feeling the past few topics. This week though is a freebie prompt which I’ve been really excited about, especially after seeing Mel‘s post about her top 10 video games. I posted up a poll on twitter asking what topic you’d like to see me do this week and video games won with 57% of the vote, so that’s what you’re all getting for this week 😉

– Top 10 Books on my Spring TBR–

It’s hard to believe that Spring is here, especially when we’ve had snow all weekend and everything is confused about what season it even is any more so I haven’t really been doing an awful lot of thinking about what would be on my Spring TBR. I tend to set my TBR month to month and even then I don’t get round to reading some of the books! I do have a bunch of books that I really need to get my little butt into gear and read though so this is the perfect excuse to be held accountable for my promises ;D

– Top 10 books I wouldn’t reread–

This week the prompt is ‘Books I Could Reread Forever’ but as I already bang on about the books I love all the time (so you could probably already guess what ones are on that list) I thought I’d mix it up instead and do books I wouldn’t reread.
I’ve selected 5 books I wouldn’t reread because I hated them or found them really problematic, and 5 that I enjoyed but wouldn’t get anything out of reading them again!

– Top 10 OTPs VS NoTPs –

We’ve been given the freedom to run rampant with this weeks T10T ‘Love Freebie’ prompt and, after some voting from my twitter followers, I’ve decided to make this week a list of my favorite OTPs versus the OTPs that I despise.
