Top Ten Tuesday-- Red, White, and Blue Takeover

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme now hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (July 3rd) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten Fave Red, White, & Blue Books

  • So finding books with red, white, AND blue on the covers was way too hard for me.  I decided to find books that mainly had ONE of those colors featured.  Also, I narrowed it down by only picking my fave books for this list.  So yeah, I LOVE all of these books & think you should totally read them if you haven't!!

1.  Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher- This book started my love for this author-- and I really need more books by her PLEASE!!

2.  Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick- I am bummed about the movie being cancelled-- although I get why it was :(

3.  Final Girls by Riley Sager- I am reading THE LAST TIME I LIED right now and it is even better!!!

4.  Violent Ends by Various YA Authors- Best compilation book ever.

5.  Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo- Why is this author no longer writing??  I need MORE!!!

6.  The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold- The movie sucked, but this book was totally and completely addicting.

7.  This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers- I freaking LOVE this cover.  Also, can this be a movie please???

8.  Bad Girls With Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten- If you read one book off of this list-- let it be this one!!

9.  Learning to Swear in America by Katie Kennedy- This book was so fun and also nerve-wracking.

10.  Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway- Such a good friendship book.  I need to read more Robin Benway PRONTO.

What kind of books made your lists this week?  Have you read any of these??


  1. Ooh This Is Not A Test. YES we need a movie of that. Man that would be awesome. And Bad Girls With Perfect Faces was a TRIP- love that book!

    Love and Other Perishable Items has a nice cover too!

  2. I really enjoyed Ketchup Clouds when I read it, though I barely remember it now 🙈

  3. You found great ones! I had Emmy & Oliver on mine too.

  4. Ketchup Clouds just made me smile even before I knew what the book was about. And Violent Ends -- gosh that cover is striking (I think I may have a liking for the red covers but BLUE is my favourite colour!)

  5. Great list! I enjoyed Final Girls, glad to hear The Last Time I Lied is good, too.

  6. I didn't even know Leonard Peacock was going to be a movie - aw, that's a bummer it was canceled. I did love that book. I haven't read Final Girls yet BUT I really want to read The Last Time I Lied.


  7. The Last Time I Lied is currently sitting in my top three books of the year. I'm so glad other people are loving it too!

  8. The Lovely Bones was such a good book.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  9. I did the same sort of thing, red, white and blue covers but not necessarily all covers which were combinations of the three.

  10. What a gorgeous post, Michelle! These covers are stunning. My TTT

  11. I love seeing these blue cover together. Always meant to pick up Emmy & Oliver. Great picks!

  12. I love your TTT picks, because they are not all the most popular books. We are sort of kindred spirits in that. Emmy & Oliver <3 Benway can do no wrong. I thought Bad Girls was fantastic. I loved Wringerten's writing so much. You have a few up there I hope to read at some point in my life too. Nice picks, as always.

  13. I like your picks! I struggled hard to find books with all 3 colors and couldn’t find many.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  14. Finals Girls was an excellent thriller. :)
