Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books Every Adventurer Should Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, in which we all talk about a bookish topic and have fun making lists.

This is my first ever Top Ten Tuesday post. I’m nervous…😁

It took me a while to think of my theme. I even considered:
⚫Ten Books Every Person Who Wants To Dive Into Another World Should Read
⚫Ten Books Every Person Who Wants To Be Transported To Another World Should Read
⚫Ten Books Every Person Who Wants To Be In Another World Should Read
… they are all too long and it took  some time for me to settle on adventurer.

In reading books, we undoubtedly go into adventure. The magic of books. They do say that books are portals to another world.

So here’s my list of books for fellow adventurers:

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling

– do I need to say why? I could totally live inside these books. I’ll be a witch and hangout with the Golden Trio. It would be fun to attend classes on Hogwarts, have a conversation with Luna and Ginny and maybe plan pranks with Fred and George. I will learn magic and meet amazing people. I’ll avoid Peeves at all cost. I’ll shake hands with Dumbledore. Ah, I totally love this world.💜

2. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

– imagine living in a world where you’re a demigod and you have powers(depends who your parents are) and the gods and goddesses of Olympus are real. There maybe monsters but you could totally defeat them. Going to Half-blood Camp and doing quests along the way with the help of friends and some magic-infused gifts. By the gods!

3. The Lion, The  Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

– that Wardrobe phenomena. I admit to being guilty of trying to prod one of our cabinets to see if Narnia will recognize me as daughter of Eve. I mean hello? I can totally rule Narnia.Lol. Even if animals speak and it’s a bit dangerous with wars and all, it will be fun to have even a glimpse of this magical world. Narnia, wait for me!

4. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

– I first read this on first grade. I remember it being an illustrated version for kids. It was creepy. Just imagine embarking in a world with talking animals, with potions that shrinks and enlarges you. With cunning people trying to trick you. And see the title? My keyword is there: adventure.

5. Cinderella by Charles Perrault

– I know what you’ll say. How can becoming a princess be an adventure? But the thing is my greatest ambition when I was a kid is to become a princess. Imagine being in a land where there’s royalty and then a royal ball! We don’t have royalties in our country (as far as I know) and I’ve never attended a ball (does JS prom counts?), so just imagine being in Cinderella’s shoes. For me, it would be an adventure.

6. The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

– another Princess book but in a modern setting. Imagine being Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo, a normal girl and then Princess the next day. I totally love this book. A teen-ager trying to learn to become the next ruler of Genovia. Go Princess!

7. Wildest Dreams by Kristen Ashley

– I would have recommended the whole series but I don’t recommend an adventure on The Golden Dynasty (2nd book) because of the savageness. Nope, not gonna send anyone there. In this parallel world where magic is abundant, wars, royalties, witches, creatures unheard of and the ability to understand animals, anyone would have an adventure of a lifetime. Did I mention dragons and elves? Yep, and wolves too. Let’s go ask Valentine to transport us, but you need to pay. She accepts diamonds.😁

8. The Host by Stephenie Meyer

– alien abductions anyone? It would be frightening but still an adventure. In a world where you can’t trust anyone unless you kinda check their eyes. Trying to steal goods without being seen and defending your base from highly intelligent enemies. The adrenaline! But maybe you’ll find some friendly aliens too. Go Wanda!

I haven’t read the last two on my list but surely being thrust into any of these books would be an adventure.

9. The Lord of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

10.  Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin

That’s it. 😁

    • The next series? I was able to finish Mark of Athet but I can’t seem to continue on House of Hades. I prefer Greek more than Roman mythology and I’m having difficulty liking the new characters.. Lol

  2. Welcome to TTT!!! Fabulous first post. My blog partner and I just started this year, so we’re new too. I’m with the other commenters, I have The Host, but haven’t read it yet. I think b/c I have the paperback, and I’ve been sucked into my kindle for the past few years. 😛

    Also, have you visited Universal Studios and the Harry Potter world?? It’s amazing, and I spent my entire time in that part of Universal b/c it was so fun to pretend to be in that world. Highly recommend a visit. And Butterbeer is AMAZING!!!

  3. You should definitely read LotR and aSoIaF. I’ve heard of the Host before and the sequels have been long overdue. Is it enjoyable as a standalone?

    I’m new to TTT too! Just started last week. Currently combing through the dusty recesses of my mind to do next week’s TTT.

    • I don’t know why Ms. Meyer is still planning a sequel. It’s good enough, more than enough to be a standalone. I don’t even know what angle she’ll be gunning into if she decides to make a sequel. You can read it as a standalone. It’s amazing.❤

      Those books series are on my TBR, just a bit intimidated because they’re hyped up.

      TTT is fun.😀

  4. All great choices! Great start with TTT, I absolutely love doing these posts so I hope you do too! I’ve been meaning to read The Host for ages – I watched the movie and really liked it (have you seen the movie? Does it compare?)
