๐Ÿ Top Ten Tuesday ๐Ÿ

Iโ€™ve decided to muscle in on The Broke and the Bookishโ€˜s fantastic Top Ten Tuesday meme! This week itโ€™sโ€ฆ

๐ŸŒˆ Top Ten Books I’ve Recently Added To My TBR ๐ŸŒˆ

I actually have a valid excuse for not posting for a while! I’ve just come back from a holiday toย wonderful Cambodia. I spentย a week temple hopping, hiking andย andย horse riding and a week in the Elephant Nature Park’s Cambodiaย sanctuary looking after overworked and mistreated elephants.ย It was pretty much paradise! I urge anyone who interested in interacting with elephants ethically (no riding, no bullhooks) or even to learn about the shocking treatments elephant’s must go through to make them ‘tame’ย to check out the literally astonishingย work they do inย Thailand and Cambodia.ย 

Anyway, swiftly on to this week’s TTT. It’s good to be back!

A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol and Other Christmas Writings - Penguin Clothbound Classics (Hardback)

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

For someone with a degree in English, I’ve read criminally little of Dickens. This year it will change and I fully intended on getting lost in this little one next Christmas!

Selected poems by Ted Hughes

I love animals and I love Ted Hughes. Nuff said.

Cold Comfort Farm

Cold Comfort Farm (Paperback)

Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons

Embarrassingly, this has been on my TBR list for at least 5 years! It’s getting so ridiculous now something has to be done. Maybe I should even make it my next book?

  1. You have to read Pratchett…He was GOD of all that is humane and funny. His wit and sarcasm and brilliance is unmatched! Hope you enjoy his works soon! ๐Ÿ™‚
