Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and Bookish.  Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today I'm one of them :)

This week the topic is:

Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR List

Wow I have so many books I want to read, but I guess I'll have to narrow it down.  This is the perfect list for today because it's the first day of spring and it is freaking BEAUTIFUL outside (at least it is here in PA)... and these are not in order or necessarily New Releases:

1.  Paper Covers Rock By: Jenny Hubbard - Well since this book is sitting in front of me on my dining room table, I guess it's making the list :)  Plus I like a male as the main character every once in a while!

2.  Bunheads By: Sophie Flack- I love the cover of this one, it's so cool looking!  I've been wanting to read this since I used to dance.

3.  Stargirl By: Jerry Spinelli- I have to read this book already!  I checked it out of the library over a month ago, but I just keep finding other books to read!

4.  The Hunger Games By: Suzanne Collins- Ok I am going to read this this spring, even if I have to get it on audio!  I want to read it because I read most "fad" books just to keep up with pop-culture and stuff, plus the movie is out now!  I just haven't been able to do it so far because I don't really dig Dystopian novels :(

5.  Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters By: Meredith Zeitlin- Can't wait to read this one!  It just sounds so me!  Watch this video about the book... how cute is that??

6.  Getting over Garrett Delaney By: Abby McDonald- I love teenage heartache!!  I can't help it, when a boy breaks a girls heart in a book (if it's written right) I just feel it!

7.  She's So Dead to Us By: Kieran Scott- Been on my TBR list I feel like forever... gonna read it cause I really want to read This is So Not Happening, and apparently it's part of a series??  News to me!

8.  Bitter End By: Jennifer Brown- I so had a boyfriend like this, and I love reading about things I can relate to (which is probably why I don't read Fantasy).  Plus I LOVED The Hate List!

9.  Reason to Breathe By: Rebecca Donovan- Just sounds super-awesome!  It's a book I'll probably feel the need to read the ending (I do that a lot in books where there's a secret).

10.  The List By: Siobhan Vivian- I've heard good things about this one, so I'm definitely reading it sooner rather than later!  It reminds me of the Slam Books we had in Junior High.  Wait was I a Mean Girl???  Nah!!

So that's it... What are yours??


  1. Stargirl is wonderful! I'm sure you'll love it. As for the Hunger Games, I didn't think I would like them, either. I mean, kids killing each other doesn't sound very appealing to me. But the characters are interesting, and something about the way she writes...you just can't stop reading it!

  2. Oh also- random question. I remember you said on my top ten last week that you were interested in reading An Off Year (the book about a girl who takes a year off from college) because you had experienced something like that. What's the story there, if you don't mind sharing?

    1. Haha yes... i went to college right out of high school, which probably wasnt a good idea since i was a wild child in h.s.... but anyway i went to college for a few years and joined a sorority and drank like everyday except mondays lol. So yeah I didn't do so well at school and i didnt really care either. but now im sort of paying for it since im back in school trying to finish the mess i made (because i finally realized im not independently wealthy or a princess and i need to make $$ haha).

    2. Oooh I see. Yeah, sometimes I wonder if ANY of us are really read to go to college at 18, and sometimes I think everyone should take a year or two off. But at least you went back to school, Michelle! That's good!

  3. Your list is great! I really want to read Freshman Year and Getting Over Garrett. I keep meaning to get caught up on the Kieran Scott series and pick up Bitter End. I am adding them to my list ASAP! Thanks for reminding me!

    1. I just got freshman year today at the library!!! so excited to read it, if it wasnt so nice outside i would probab;y start it right now!

    2. My library doesn't have a copy of Freshman Year! So sad!

  4. I second Stargirl!

    This is a fantastic list. I haven't heard of many of these - including Bunheads. That cover is delightful! My TBR list just don't stop growing with these memes.

    Thanks for stopping by. :)

  5. Wow, it sounds like a lot of interesting books. I have heard about the hunger games before, but never read the books. I had another list yesterday. http://whatafeeling-mailene.blogspot.com/2012/03/top-ten-inspirational-characters.html =)
