Top Ten Tuesdays: Favorite Books You’ve Read During the Lifespan of Your Blog

We were so sad to miss last week’s Top Ten Tuesday (technical issues!) that we are extra excited to be back now! I probably would have been pretty harsh on last week’s topic anyways. I mean, two of my cousins are married to high school sweethearts, but the odds are definitely not in those pairs’ favor… Just saying… (But yay them, of course, for defying those odds)

This week’s topic is a little tough because it is favorite books we have read in our blog’s lifespan. Well we have been blogging for three months, but I still consider us new!

Mary: Since I’ve chosen to do several re-reads, I am including some books that I have read over the past 3 months though it wasn’t for the first time.

1. Audrey Wait! by Robin Benway. We are kind of obsessed.










2. The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery. Sigh. My favorite of hers.










3. Bitterblue by Kristen Cashore. I love her. I don’t think she is capable of disappointing me.










4. Take A Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg. This one was just a lot of fun.










5. Her Royal Spyness by Rhys Bowen. LYLAS, Georgie.










Honorable Mention(s): Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas and Seraphina by Rachel Hartman. Read recently so I’m letting these two marinate a while… But I have a strong suspicion they are favorites too!

Elizabeth’s Picks: OK, I admit it. There is a reason that Mary has so many more posts than I do. And it’s not because I read less than her. It has a lot more to do with the fact that I read a book, but before I write a review, I get distracted by another book. I should really just hide my kindle until I write a review. But then I would just read a new book on my phone. Definitely need to work on self-control. However, because of this, many of my faves do not have reviews for them… yet! So, forgive me Mary. I’ll work on this I promise.

6. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. We really need to write a review for this one, because both Mary and I keep spouting praise for it. But at the same time, I have no idea where to start. It’s almost indescribable (why do I think of Aladdin and “A Whole New World” whenever I use that word?), but indescribably awesome.










7. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks. I think I like this mermaid book even better than Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs, though I enjoyed it as well.










8. Stirring Up Trouble by Juli Alexander. I just appreciated the genuine cuteness of this story. It made me smile, simple as that.










9. Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter. I thought this was a great installation of an awesome series. Certainly not what I was expecting, but you can’t help but root for the Gallagher Girls.









10. Goodnight Tweetheart by Teresa Medeiros. Ok, I actually read this right before we started posting, but I’m counting it anyway. I just saw it on a previous Recommend A… and was reminded of how much I love it.
