Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish back in June 2010. It is currently hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and, as is stated on the blog, it was “born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.”
Happy Tuesday to you all. I know I’ve been rather quiet these past few days, but there’s a good reason for that…
WE CLOSED ON OUR FIRST HOUSE!!!
That’s right, ya girl is finally a homeowner! This is something that I’ve been dreaming of for awhile and now it’s a reality. We aren’t doing the heavy moving until July 1st, but it’s ours and it already feels like home 💕
On that celebratory note, let’s talk about the fact that today marks 10 years of TTT! I’ve only recently been taking part of Top Ten Tuesday, but it’s one of my favorite posts to write. What can I say, I love lists! In celebration of the 10 year anniversary, you can pick any of the past prompts from the past ten years. Scrolling through them, there were a ton of interesting ones, but I decided to go with one that instantly grabbed my attention: My Favorite Books I Read During the Last Ten Years. Now, I started my Goodreads in 2011, so I’ve decided to tweak this a little and talk about my favorite books that were published in the last ten years!
With that said, let’s dive in.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
I absolutely loooooved this book! As someone who worked in virology, which uses some of the cell line that was born from Henrietta Lacks, I found this book absolutely fascinating. As a Black woman, I found the way Henrietta and her children were treated by the medical community INFURIATING! Still, this is a wonderful read and I recommend it to anyone who has even an inkling of an interest in non-fiction.
