This week, this list is my top ten for

Top Ten Tuesday! (19)

Hi Everyone!
Happy Tuesday!
Welcome to another post for Top Ten Tuesday! Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week-
Top Ten Most Intimidating Books

Collage time!

Some are because of size, some are content. Some are subject matter (I know I’m going to be scared during The Shining). Some are because I’ve been looking forward to reading it for so long, I hope it lives up my expectations! (Jane Eyre) And one is because I’ve been told I should read it, even though I don’t think I’ll like it (I am not a Hemmingway fan.)

Here they are, in no particular order.

Top Ten Tuesday! (18)

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday! hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
I love lists. I may be a list maniac.
It’s why I still have a physical planner I write in.

No digital planners for me!

This week:
Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far in 2013

1. Me Before You
By far the best book I have read all year
Balling, people. Balling like a little baby in the middle of the night.

2. Lover At Last
If you have been waiting for these two characters to get together, then your wait is over.
And the Ward does not disappoint.

3. Prodigy
The best sequel I have read – I may even say that I like it more than Legend, Book One. 
Killed me.

4. Seduced In The Dark
The sequel to Captive in the Dark.
Not for the faint of heart.
I read it twice.

5. Winterblaze
Poppy and Win’s story. At last.

6. Hopeless
Beautiful, uncomfortable, amazing.

7. The Taker
Adult paranormal, dark, romance, historical and an edge of crazy

8. Love Water Memory
 The writing is solid and the depth and struggles the characters go through are so real.

9. Siege & Storm
A strong sequel that makes me think I never left Bardugo’s world or her characters.

10. Eleanore & Park
A beautifully written coming of age story.

Honorable mention:  Touch & Go
A fun, twisty thriller that had me surprised many times.

What is your Top Ten???

Top Ten Tuesday! (17)

Welcome to another Broke and The Bookish Top Ten Tuesday!

This week, the top ten is:

Top Ten books on my Summer TBR list!

Well, I really love the Summer- I love reading at the beach.

And like I said before, I’m trying really hard to focus on books I already own or have gotten ARCs for. 
I am totally guilty of going to a bookstore and wanting a lot of new releases, but then they become older releases because they sit on my shelf and I don’t get around to reading all of them in a timely manner.
I’m on a serious book diet at the moment (I know, roll your eyes. I’ve been on them before) and I’m doing pretty well!

So here are the books I’m hoping to read by the end of the summer!

Top Ten Tuesday! (16)

Hello and Happy Tuesday! Welcome to another edition of Top Ten Tuesday hosted by the awesome The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s question is:

Top Ten Beach Reads!

How do I define a beach read? Hmm, hard to say. I think a little bit of romance, a little bit of thrilling adventure. Maybe a mystery?

Here are some fun beach reads I am looking forward to taking to the beach his year!

I am focusing my summer reading on appreciating the books in my TBR pile that I have already, so there aren’t a ton of new releases. In no particular order:


What is on your summer reading list??
