It's top ten Tuesday, hosted by the Broke and Bookish Blog. Today's topic is "The ten books I read that aren't about books." This is hard for me, because most of the blogs I read have something to do with blogs, whether it's book reviews or author blogs. So I don't think I'll be able to come up with ten...but here it goes:
1. What I Wore - There are a lot of fashion blogs out there, but this one is my favorite. It's written by a woman named Jessica Quirk. She has really great style, and her blog seems really friendly and approachable, not like other fashion blogs where all the clothes are designer and nobody is smiling. I get lots of ideas for outfits from her blog.
2. Kendie Everyday -Another one of my favorite fashion blogs. She has really great style, very original. I like how colorful her outfits are.
3. The College Prepster - This blog is written by a girl I went to high school with, who then went on to college at Georgetown. I don't really consider my own style "preppy," but I still like a lot of the fashion she posts about. Also, she writes about more than clothes, like her life at school. For me, it's always interesting for me to read about other people's college and life experiences.
4. Pearls and Lemonade - My friend Laura writes this blog. She writes about lots of different things - movies, cooking, college life. I think reading friend's blogs can be a good way to keep up with them, too.
5. Little Blog on the Internet - My friend Cassie writes this blog. She loves cooking and has some great recipe ideas!
6. Vulture's Gossip Girl Blog - I'm a huge fan of Gossip Girl, even though the show has kind of gone off the rails lately. This blog recaps the episodes every weeks and points out all the ridiculous things that happen. It's so funny.
7. The Current Conscience - This blog, written by a man named Yashar, covers a lot of different topics, most of them related to women's rights. He has a really interesting take on it, being a man and all. He's had some really insightful posts, like when he wrote about how many people manipulate each other emotionally.
8. The Good Men Project - I used to read this blog a lot, but I haven't kept up with it much lately. Still, it has a lot of interesting posts, and they're not just important for men to read. They talk a lot about how we define "maniless" in our society and what it means to really be a good man. It's really interesting to see the kind of issues men struggle with.
9. The Kvetching Board - I'm not sure if this counts as a blog, but I read this column religiously. It's posted every Friday in UNC's newspaper, the Daily Tar Heel. Students send in anonymous complaints about life on campus and in town, and then they get published. How great is that! I love listening to people complain! But really, they're pretty funny, and I can always relate to a few of them. Some will only make sense if you've been to UNC, but some a pretty universal.
