Top 10 of 2011

Hello and welcome to……..

Top 10: A Week of Looking Back….
                                ………and Looking Forward.

Last year Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic and Lisa from A Life Bound By Books posted some Top 10 lists the last week of 2010. For five days they recapped some of their favorite books, covers and characters. They also listed some books they were looking forward to in 2011.

This year they thought they’d do it again… just with a twist. They have invited some friends to help them co-host things and make an event out of it!


Jessica and Lisa, Jaime & Patricia from Two Chicks on Books and Rachel from Fiktshun (me!) &  have all come together to work on making this into something we hope more people will want to join in on and contribute.

You’re probably wondering what the topics of this years Top 10 lists will be and the dates, right? Well I have all that info for you here….

[stextbox id=”custom” color=”ffffff” bcolor=”ffffff” bgcolor=”073763″ image=”null”]

Monday 12/26 – Top 10 Books I’ve read in 2011

Tuesday 12/27 – Top 10 Book Covers of 2011

Wednesday 12/28 – Top 10 Book Boyfriends in 2011

Thursday 12/29 – Top 10 Characters in 2011 (This can be anything you’d like to make it for characters. You can post your favorite Villains, etc. Just be sure that this post is character based.)

Friday 12/30 – Top 10 Books I’m looking forward to in 2012 (Also on this day, we’ll each be adding some kind of a recap of the total number of books read, pages read, etc. This part of the post is optional. Feel free to add any stats you’d like to share with everyone. So, if you’d like to also include some end of year stats, feel free to join us!)


How you do these posts/lists is totally up to you. What books, covers and characters you pick are all your own.

The only rules to follow are posting the topics on the dates we’ve provided.

Now, I know what you’re all thinking. That this will be hard to keep to 10. Some of you might like to break the lists up a bit. Working with a Top 10 for YA books and then a Top 10 for Adult titles. Feel free to add honorable mentions if you’re also having a hard time sticking to 10. However, with the honorable mentions, please try to keep it to a minimum or it kind of defeats the whole purpose of things.

Our main focus of this event is for YOU to join in and share your lists with us all and for everyone to visit each others’ blogs and see what books have made it on THEIR lists.

The event is simple. Follow the dates and list topics as provided above and fill out the linky below. This gives us an idea of who will be joining us for the Top 10 week. THEN, be sure to come back to one of our blogs on each of the days and link up your post for that specific day! Just remember, each day will have a linky for THAT Top 10 topic.

At the end of the event we will be picking a winner using Random.org from the people who have posted their lists and added their info to the linky for each day. Total number of maximum entries is 6.

Telling us you are joining in on the event in today’s linky is your first entry. Posting your Top 10 each day with the correct topic on the correct day, THEN coming back to add your link to the linky for that day gives you another entry.

Additional Giveaway details will be provided soon, so keep checking back to find out what we’ll be giving away!

NOTE: this is the SAME Linky on each of the Co-Hosts Blogs, so please only enter your Name, Blog Name and URL on one blog. Thanks!

Be sure to grab the button provided for the event and display it on your blog and link it back to this post so anyone who wants to find out more info about the event easily knows how to find us.

We hope everyone who reads this will be as excited for this event as we are and we can’t wait to check out all of your lists!

  11. Question about the Top 10 Book Covers of 2011. Do they have to be covers of books you READ in 2011 or books released in 2011? I’ve seen some awesome covers of books but I’ve not read them.

  12. Kate says:

  17. Lisa says:

    I didn’t find this till Tuesday, can I still get started? And do I just start with today’s, or do I need to do 2 posts today to get caught up?

    • Fiktshun009 says:

      Hi Lisa, you can do either. It’s not too late to sign up. For each day you post and include your link you’ll get an extra entry into the giftcard giveaway, but you can post as many or as few as you’d like. Yesterday’s post is a bit more popular as it’s the top 10 books you’ve read, so you can always post that one and skip covers, or however you’d like to do it! I’m glad you found the event and can’t wait to see what your book choices are!

      I hope that helps.
