Hello all!

So this year I am going to introduce this new folder. I've seen this in a youtube video that I was watching and I thought it would be cool to add it in our group.

It's very simple, every Monday I, or anyone who is willing to contribute, will introduce a top 5 theme and people can list down their top 5. Not only will you be able to share your favorites books (or other book related things), but it might introduce people to other books as well.

I hope to have 48 topics for this idea, but if I run out then I won't make it to December. Also, if interests are not all there, I'll most likely end it too. Let's just play this one by ear ^_^

I'll start this in February.

Tommy Hancock (tommyhancock) | 440 comments I don't want to step on any toes by posting without saying anything, so I'll just throw you a list of ideas I'd be interested in seeing, if that's cool.

1. Top 5 fictional weapons(You can go strictly books or not, either would be cool).

2. Top 5 sidekicks.

3. Top 5 vehicles/modes of transport.

4. Top 5 non-human characters.

5. Top 5 YA horror(this one is strictly for me because I don't often see YA horror and would love to peruse your guys' lists, were they made haha)

I'm sure I can think of more, but I don't want to overstep. Plus, doing a top 5 list of top 5 lists I'd like to see felt pseudo-clever haha.


message 7: by Ashley Marie (new)

Ashley Marie top 5 dystopian books would be fun. Hunger Games will always top my list because those books were addictive as hell, but I love how the genre is expanding!


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
Thanks Tommy. I don't think you are stepping on any toes and your ideas are appreciated :)


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

My ideas(since you dont mind them, and I get that I mean ideas are always good. they are either good in themselves or they show enthusiasm).
contemporary, and contemporary sub genres:
- cont, top 5 friendship focused books
- top 5 romance cont.
- top 5 royalty cont(for ex, princess diaries)
- top 5 celebity cont.
- top 5 road trip cont.


Any genre, top 5 comedic character.

Tommy Hancock (tommyhancock) | 440 comments Are these still happening? I hope so, they've been good fun and have even put some new books on my tbr list :)


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
I hope so too Tommy! I gave Bluemoon a few ideas awhile back. If she gets too busy to add any new ones I will :)


message 13: by Tommy (new)

Tommy Hancock (tommyhancock) | 440 comments Oh, yes if she's too busy I don't want to seem pushy or anything haha. Just letting it be known that I enjoy.


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

No worries. Sometimes that pesky life thing gets in the way of all the fun stuff haha.

Elora Mitchell | 578 comments Argh. Sometimes I really don't like this app....I searched through the folder to make sure you hadn't done those. Oh well! :)


Heidi (Yup. Still here.)  | 6961 comments Mod
No worries Elora! We are always open to suggestions :)


*b*l*u*e*m*o*o*n* | 986 comments Mod
I've been neglecting this. Its all the way at the bottom of the page, that's why. Sorry guys! Oda great suggestions! You don't need to post it here. If you want to create a new post you can do so. Just make sure its under the Top 5 category.
