Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough/In A While


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted each week by The Broke and The Bookish and allows us to combine our love of books with our love of lists.

Alright, this one was actually kinda tough for me because I haven’t talked a lot about books other than in reviews, but here it goes!


1.  Immortals Series by Tamora Pierce

This series is probably to this day one of my favorite series of all times, and I’m not sure I’ve talked about them here at all.  I did share a picture of the new covers I just got on Instagram, you should totally check it out!


2.  Ender’s Shadow by Orson Scott Card

This is a version of the book Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, but told from the point of view of one of the other characters, namely, Bean.  Bean is probably my favorite character of all science fiction I have read because he is smart and honest and really just awesome.  I also got my nickname partially from this character when I was in school but that’s another story for another time.


3.  The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

Classics from my childhood.  This series just showcases what an imagination can get you.  Plus the fact that we half follow the same characters for some of the books (that sounds more confusing when you write it out…) makes it interesting!  And if you haven’t read this, please stop and read now.


4.  Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine

“If I couldn’t sleep, I could read.”  Maybe that’s where that idea came from….  I mean, is there really any need to explain this one?  This book is so much fun!


5.  The Company Story by H.D. Gordon

As far as environment issues, this is one thing to for sure look at, she brings up issues that we tend to avoid and does it in a way that makes us care about the characters.  I love this book and I think that it is a must read, check out my review here!


6.  A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Because I did actually read this book and I plan on reading the entire series and that in it of itself is worth mentioning.  Also, the complexity but magical properties of this book make it a classic even without the tv show!


7.  Where The Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein

Another great childhood book that I loved (and still enjoy) because the poems are just classic and the pictures are pretty hilarious.


8. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

This book is absolutely beautiful!  In how it’s written and the art and I just loved the entire concept and the book itself and now I’m blabbering but I don’t care go read this guys!! *deep breath*


9.  Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone

The feels in this book are so perfect and so necessary to understand that just because of what you see on the outside of a person doesn’t dictate what’s actually on the inside.


10.  The Opposite of Maybe by Maddie Dawson

A book all about the choices we make and how much having control of our lives can change our points of view.  This book honestly got me thinking about what I would do if I found myself in a difficult situation and whose advice I would listen to.
