Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
How it works: Each Tuesday will be assigned a topic and then you post your top ten list that fits it. Feel free to add your own spin on the topic to make it work for you! For me, I’m not sure the type of spin I want to put on it, so for now I’ll post fairly straight-forward responses.
I put this month’s topics at the bottom of the post, but you can find the whole list on the host blog. If you don’t have a blog, you’re welcome to participate using other social media or even by putting your list in the comments.
This Week’s Topic: Books I’d Gladly Throw Into the Ocean (submitted by Beauty & Her Books)
Instead of throwing books in the ocean because I did not enjoy them, I went for novels featuring the ocean.
**You can select the cover of each novel to access their entry on Goodreads and their titles below for my reviews, if available.**

Books I’d Gladly Throw Into the Ocean (submitted by Beauty & Her Books)
- April 13: Book Titles That Sound Like They Could Be Crayola Crayon Colors (Take a moment and Google some of the crazy Crayola crayon colors that exist. Can you think of any book titles that sound like they could also be a crayon color? It might be fun to include a description of the kind of color you’re picturing.)
- April 20: Colorful Book Covers
- April 27: Animals from Books (these could be mythical, real, main characters, sidekicks, companions/pets, shifters, etc.) (Submitted by Paige @paigesquared and Jennifer Y. @ Never Too Many to Read)
My original plan was to take this semi-literally where my list would include books that I would throw into the ocean because I would never want to read or see them again. Instead, I went with the idea that my list would include novels that would be thrown into the ocean because that is their subject matter. I went with a mix of sealore (merpeople and sirens) and also some pirates/traders that travel on the ocean/sea. Taking this idea, I divided my ten choices between those on my TBR list and those that I have previously read/reviewed. The TBR novels are ones on my 2021 list, but I am not sure which month they will fit into. The first Tuesday post is now wrapped up for April and now onto the next!
