Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books I've Read In 2017 So Far

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
To take part, just pick your top ten, and add the link here.
I haven't really read that many books this year... and not very many of them have been very good either, which is really unfortunate for me and might be why I have been in such a reading slump. Reading so many lackluster books has kind of made reading not so very fun.

Friday 50/50 - Favorite/Least Favorite Format of Books

No Book Beginning and Friday 56 this week, Still reading Harry Potter and avoiding the unread books on my shelf.... because that's how I am sometimes. So here's the other Friday Meme I do.

50/50 Friday is a new weekly link up hosted by Carrie @ The Butterfly Reader and Laura @ Blue Eye Books.  Every week they have a new topic featuring two sides of the same coin - you share a book that suits each category and link up on the hosts' blogs.

Favorite:
   I really prefer reading physical Copies of books. I like the feel of holding a book, the way the weight distribution changes as I go through the book, the smell of books too. 

Least:
   PDF's. Ebooks are fine, they are really convenient, I can carry more of them around with me, my Tablet and my phone are synced up so I always have a book on me... But PDF's don't transfer well to my tablet or phone, so I have to read them on my computer, which is the chair I sit in to read most of the time anyways, but I can't lounge in my chair if I am trying to read something on my computer screen.

I never really feel "obligated" to read, I more have a general list series that I would like to read but I don't know if I ever will have the time to start them. As usual, bookcover is linked to the Goodreads page.

I haven't seen the movie yet, because I am a peasant, and I don't have time to go out to watch movies. But I have been listening to the soundtrack all weekend. I hope it hasn't spoiled anything. :/

Book Beginning and Friday 56: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1) by J.K. Rowling // Friday 50/50-Favorite/Least Favorite Book in the First Half of the Year

This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice
These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

Please join us over at RoseCityReader every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

So, I have been not really in the mood to read any of the unread books I have on my shelf, or the books I am "currently" reading, so I decided to re-read Harry Potter for the, I'm not sure how many times I've read it. But it always helps me get out of a slump. I'm starting with book one, Sorcerer's Stone (or Philosopher depending on where you live)


Book Beginning:
Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. There were the last people you'd expect to be involved in anything strange or mysterious, because they didn't hold with such nonsense.

My 56:
"Now, listen here, boy," he snarled, "I accept there's something strange about you, probably nothing a good beating wouldn't have cured -- and as for all this about your parents, well, they were weirdos, no denying it, and the world's better off without them in my opinion --asked for what they got, getting mixed up with these wizarding types -- just what I expected, always knew they'd come to a sticky end--"
