Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is “Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough.” Here’s my top ten!
1.) The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
Even though I haven’t really been able to get into Nicholas Sparks books, I did love The Last Song. I loved the beach setting and how Ronnie’s relationship with her father grows throughout the book.
2.) It’s a Mall World After All by Janette Rallison
I first read this book in middle school and every time I reread it, I laugh even harder. Sometimes it’s hard for me to find humorous contemporary books that I like, but Janette Rallison’s books always make me laugh out loud!
3.) Just One Wish by Janette Rallison
This book by Janette Rallison is the perfect blend of humor and heart. I loved this book in high school, so I can’t believe it haven’t mentioned it more!
4.) Avalon High by Meg Cabot
Avalon High is a retelling of King Arthur, so usually that would be something that wouldn’t draw me in. However, I loved this book and definitely recommend it.
5.) The Giver by Lois Lowry
I actually first read The Giver for a class in college and I was surprised by how quickly I read through it. I haven’t read any of the other books in the series yet, but this makes me want to read the rest.
6.) Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta
Saving Francesca is like a book that takes a similar plot that you would see in a movie, but gives the characters more depth. I think it’s a great book if you want a fun story line, but with deep characters.
7.) Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems
This book is absolutely hilarious and every person I’ve showed this book to falls in love with the pigeon.
8.) Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson
I remember loving this book and reading through it in one day. It takes place in the summer and has unique characters that you can’t help but love.
9.) The Juliet Club by Suzanne Harper
This book drew me in because who wouldn’t want to spend the summer in Italy? Sending a letter to Juliet is also a fun idea that you can actually do yourself!
10.) Secret Santa by Sabrina James
Today I posted a review of Spring Fling by Sabrina James (you can read my review here) and it made me remember how much I loved Secret Santa by the same author. The plot of this book is just like a high school movie, which I love!
