Thanksgiving Week Edition of Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Books We’re Most Thankful For is what we’re talkin’ this week! And boy oh boy do I have books I am thankful for! Join in the fun at The Broke and The Bookish!
1- The Art of Racing in the Rain: Garth Stein
This book showed me how to feel for a dog that wasn’t my own, and how to care for characters more than any other book has been able to. I am going to forever recommend this book to anyone with a heart.
2-The Outsiders: S.E. Hinton
For being the best book EVER – in eighth grade, and now! This book has stood the test of time. Just like Ponyboy and Dallas. And if you haven’t read it? Don’t talk to me.
3-The Green Mile: Stephen King
Don’t ask questions. Just read it. This book is amazing, and it shows you a side of life you will never (hopefully) see otherwise. Life on Death Row. Its so, so, so, amazing. And written by the King of Horror. Can’t go wrong.
4-Delirium: Lauren Oliver
For showing me life after The Hunger Games. Oliver showed me that I COULD love another series as much as The Hunger Games! I love this series and CANT WAIT for its conclusion in 2013!
5-Slammed: Colleen Hoover
What’s that? I haven’t talked about this book enough? Okay, good! I didn’t think so either! 😉 Slammed is one of those books that stays with you, and leaves you thinking about how it made you feel. It is just.. EPIC.
6-Where She Went: Gayle Forman
For beautiful writing, amazing characters and keeping me on the edge of my seat. I love Gayle Forman OH SO MUCH. She truly has a beautiful way with words.
7-The Kite Runner: Khaled Houssini
Seriously, this book is a masterpiece. I thought I’d hate it. I put off reading it. I tried to avoid it. But I had to do it. And boy am I glad I did! This is a must read, and I truly believe I will never read anything like it ever again.
8-The Maze Runner: James Dashner
This book is unlike any other dystopian I have touched. The world building is truly phenomenal. However, this book is on the list for a more important reason! It is what made me want to start blogging! So in essence, it brought me to you guys! 🙂
That’s it for this edition! I’m not putting ten, cuz well.. I never do. And I’m in a bit of a rush today! I hope you all have a GREAT Thanksgiving! Don’t forget some wine, and your sweatpants for after the feast!
