Top Ten Most Unique Books I’ve Read

toptentuesday

Happy Tuesday! From a book narrated from the collective perspective of a Greek chorus of gay men who’ve died from aids to a Kafkaesque, apocalyptic story of mutant bugs taking over an Iowa town, all of these books boggled my mind with their uniqueness. I couldn’t help wondering, how did the authors dream this up? What’s the most unique book you’ve read? I want to hear about it! Continue reading

Top Ten Books I’ve Loved The Have Big Fandoms

toptentuesday

I usually LOVE popular books, but I don’t totally connect with the idea of fandom. Even with Harry Potter, which I loved more than any story ever, I didn’t get fully into the fandom. I went to the midnight book parties and movies and obsessed over the story with my friends, but I didn’t join online communities, buy merchandise, or read fanfiction. Anyway, here are then books/series I’ve loved that have giant fandoms. Continue reading

Top Ten Authors I’d Like to Meet

toptentuesday

Since moving to New York it’s bananas how many of my favorite authors I’ve gotten to meet. I cried meeting Stephanie Perkins, freaked out talking bout my thesis with E. Lockhart, talked about Smith with Meg Wolitzer, and even took a YA lit class with David Levithan. Still, there are plenty of authors I’d still *love* to meet. Here are ten of them: Continue reading

Top Ten Books I’ve Read in One Sitting

toptentuesday

I LOVE reading books in one sitting. If I like a book I want to devour it. If I don’t like a book (or I like it but the subject matter is upsetting) I’m desperate to get it over with. Here are ten of my favorite books I’ve read in one sitting or almost in one sitting (like throughout a day). From books I read during read-a-thons to reading Harry Potter sitting next to my best friend from high school, I think I like each of these books more because of my ability to read them quickly. Do you like reading a book in one sitting or do you prefer to savor a book over a longer period of time? Continue reading

Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR

toptentuesday

So glad to have Top Ten Tuesday back! There are so many great books coming out this year that I’m excited to read. I’m going to see Angie Thomas talk about her new book The Hate U Give at Books of Wonder this Thursday, so that will probably be the first one to knock of the list. I was so so thrilled to see it debut at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list last week! What books are you excited to read this spring? Continue reading

Ten Books I Loved More than I Thought I Would

toptentuesday

I always *hope* that I love a book when I start reading. But sometimes, whether its an ARC sent to me, a rec from a friend that I can’t turn down, or something assigned for class, I’m a little skeptical of how much I will enjoy a story. Also sometimes books seem like they are going to seem way too sad for me. These ten books are books I thought I’d like but ended up loving. Hopefully there will be many more books to add to this list in the years to come! Continue reading
