It’s Top 10 Tuesday! This is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and the Bookish featuring whatever I feel like this week. These are the books I can’t help but read over and over….and over again.
Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: I seriously LOVED this book. It was beautifully written and I could not wait to start it over again and see what I missed the last time around.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: If you have not read these books, you need to make it happen. Now. Forget everything you think you know (sparkly!!!) about vampires and throw it out the window. With your free hands, pick up this book.
Elite by Rachel Van Dyken: This book came out of nowhere. There I was, looking for a quick read while on sick leave and BAM! I was reading this book back to back. The sequel is almost here. Squeal!
Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani: Maybe it has something to do with it being set near where I grew up, but I love this book. The history woven throughout this story is amazing. I can’t wait for the movie next year! (Ashley Judd!!!!!)
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine: This is one of my earliest memories of a book obsession. I was super excited about the movie, but alas, was disappointed. Char is the epitome of Prince Charming in my head. Sigh.
The Awakening by Kate Chopin: This book is not for everyone. However, I love the character development and the sense of female independence found in this book well before it’s time.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin: Two words. Mr. Darcy.
Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson: This is NOT James Patterson’s usual thrillers (which I also, incidentally, adore). This book could go toe-to-toe with Nicholas Spark’s best work. Read it now. You won’t be disappointed.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: I was completely put off reading this book because it is about cancer (I’m not insensitive, I just couldn’t deal with it). However, Green brought a lightness to the topic that made it enjoyable. I loved Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace. Enough to endure this torture repeatedly.
Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach: Call it the pharmacist in me. I am fascinated with educating topics told from a fun point of view. Mary Roach nails it every single time. Check out her other books for some varying topics.
