Top 5 Tuesday topics: July-September 2024

Hello friends!! Welcome to the Top 5 Tuesday topics post: July-September 2024!!

We’ve hit the halfway point for 2024 and we are screaming on through. Screaming? Well, not sure about you, but I sure am. Maybe that’s why my throat hurts so much. Or maybe it’s just mental screaming while I’m sick… I’m also a little bit sick because this post has been mostly drafted for weeks and I just haven’t written the intro?! So, my sincerest apologies to everyone out there who has been waiting for me to push “publish” on this post. I think my brain just malfunctioned because I swear I had already posted this.

OK, so in quarters 1 and 2, we did a bunch of random holiday things from around the world. I think it worked until it very suddenly didn’t work. Like the week we did cheese… what was I thinking?! So, we shall go back to our tried and true method of me thinking up random topics for things that I would like to do Top 5 topics on. If YOU would like to submit an idea for a post, please get in touch!! I am more than happy to share the topic love around!!

Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it is my absolute privilege and pleasure to say that it is now being hosted here, at Meeghan reads!!

Also, a gentle reminder to all that if you would like to borrow a header post from me, please use the pink one with the calendar, not the blue one with the succulents. I have personally paid for these to be designed by the lovely Kat at Waffley Cute Designs, and there is a whole permissions thing with the use of these images. Thank you!!

Top 5 Tuesday topics: July 2024

2 July: Top 5 anticipated reads for Q3 2024

It’s time to talk about all the shiny new books coming out in July, August and September 2024. What are the books you can’t wait to hold in your hands the most?

9 July: Top 5 books with small town vibes

Not sure about you, but I have a fondness for books set in small villages. Doesn’t matter if it’s a crossroad town in the mid-west, or a small fishing village in Norway. If the population is so small a stranger sticks out like a sore thumb, that’s the vibe we are going for.

16 July: Top 5 books set in a big city

In the total opposite to the week before, we are now aiming for a big city setting. Give me all of those big city feels where a person could get lost in the foot traffic walking down the street.

23 July: Top 5 books with international travel

Whether it’s a fictional land or ours, let’s share all of those travels across countries, whether by sea, air, or land. You could even find a book where the characters jump over a border!

30 July: Top 5 books with time travel

Ahh, the most outrageous travel of all and the most unreal. Tell us about your fave books where the characters skip through time (or space). If you can’t think of any, a book that spans multiple eras will also do the trick.

Top 5 Tuesday topics: August 2024

6 August: *freebie*

Topic of your choosing for today!

13 August: Top 5 books about family

Books with themes of family dynamics, whether it be supportive or otherwise, are always fascinating. What are your fave books with all of the family drama?

20 August: Top 5 books with orphans

The opposite of family would be no family. And what does a lot of (primarily middle grade or young adult) literature have in common? An absence of parents. Which, honestly, is kind of weird. Who hurt those authors??

27 August: Top 5 books with found family

This is one of my most favourite tropes, regardless of the genre. Found family is where the characters of books find themselves bonding to each other based on their shared experiences, values and connections to form their own tight-knit group. *chefs kiss*

24 September: Top 5 genre mash-ups

You know those books that are so creative and diverse that they seem to span multiple genres? The ones where it’s so seamless that you’re never actually sure which genre to put them in? Yeah, let’s talk about those books!!
