Top Five Tuesday: Bookish “D”

The adorable Erin @ Raised Reading did a fun meme a few weeks ago. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to tweak it and use it for a series of Top Five Tuesday posts. I’m going to attempt a top five bookish list for all 26 letters of the alphabet (this could get a little dicey towards the end!).

Other posts in this series:
“A”
“B” 
“C”

Picture Book – A Day With Wilbur Robinson by William Joyce. I love William Joyce’s books! This one has been adapted into the seriously underrated film Meet the Robinsons.

Middle Grade Book – The Diamond of Darkhold by Jeanne DuPrau. DuPrau’s Ember books are an excellent introduction to the dystopian genre.

YA or Adult Book – David Copperfield by Charles Dickens. Y’all, the characters! Even if you can’t bring yourself to read Dickens, do yourself a favor and watch the brilliant 1999 BBC version.

TBR – The Dark Lady by Irene Adler. Who wouldn’t want to read about young Sherlock Holmes?

Author – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Honestly, it’s a toss up between Doyle and Dickens, but anyone who can write a re-readable mystery deserves to be a favorite!

    I’ve been meaning to read the Ember series – is it done now? I think I held off because I didn’t want to wait long for the next installments.

    Oddly – and perhaps suspiciously – I am one English major who is not particularly fond of Dickens. Oh, I admire his genius but his writing style is a bit too florid for me.

    I had Irene Adler on my library queue but her books got such negative press on Goodreads that I ended up passing on them. You like, though?
