The Retribution of Mara Dyer– Michelle Hodkin
I need to know what the heck is going on, PLEASE.
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!
So, its been a while, but this was an awesome time to jump right back into Top Ten Tuesday. Of course hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Be sure to join in! Its tons of fun!
This weeks topic is REWIND! Which mean I get to pick any topic I want that I haven’t done before. So I chose..
1. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
I’m a sinner. I know. Awful, awful, awful.
2. The Jenny Pox Series J.L. Bryan
I haven’t read this yet. And thats about to change! Its my first challenge book and I’m super excited about it!
3. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Worse is, I own it. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. But I REALLY need to read this.
4. Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
I don’t watch the show, because I’m not so sure I’d like it. But I’ve heard such wonderful things about this series.
5. The Alex Cross Series by James Patterson
Mr. Patterson, I apologize! I just thought it would be impossible to catch up. There’s like 20 books in this series! But I must read them.
6. A Verse Book (Mainly Lisa Schroeder)
Angela and Loretta are the QUEENS of these. And I must get on it, one day.. soon. That should TOTALLY go in my Fall Into Autumn Reading Challenge list!
7. The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare
I mean, who doesn’t love this series? Its hard to find anyone! One day.. I promise.
8. A Stephen King Horror Book (Misery, Cujo, The Shining, etc.)
I loved the Green Mile with all my heart. But this man is the horror KING and I do not want to be tossing my Nook/book under my bed and having nightmares at 27!
9. Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
Okay, I can BELIEVE this one but with all the hype that occurred.. I didn’t want to jump on the bandwagon til I was sure I may like it.
That’s about it though!
