Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fab ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!

 Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most

1. The Opportunist was my favorite book of last year and Dirty Red has been my favorite this year! 

2. The Brenna Blixen series by Liz Reinhardt is perfect -- my favorite contemporary, YA series by far! 

3. The Secret History is my favorite book of all time.

4.  I probably recommend The Lux series by JLA more than any other books. It's just that good!

5.   Flat-Out Love was my favorite YA book of last year and a book I truly think everyone should read. 

6.   Dying to Please is my favorite book from one of my favorite authors, Linda Howard. I credit this book with getting me back into reading post-college in a major way! I subsequently read every Linda Howard novel out there and have ever since I read this one!

7.   For my friends that don't think they like science fiction - The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson

8.  For my friends that like vampires - Chicagoland Vampire series by Chloe Neill 

9.  For my friends that liked The Hunger Games - Divergent by Veronica Roth

10. The classic.


  1. I love Obsidian, that book makes me swoon, but I am sad I didn't put it on my list!

    My TTT

  2. I really really NEED to read Obsidian! Everyone loves it! Flat Out of Love & the Chicagoland Vampires series sound really good! Definitely adding them to my TBR list.

  3. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my TTT. As you said, I have The Secret History on my list too, great to see that you love that one so much. The Bell Jar is one I've always meant to read and still hope to one day. Thanks for introducing me to lots of new books too.


  4. LOVE Divergent and Obsidian - but I hadn't heard of a lot of the rest! Definitely need to check them out.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT! :)

  5. Awesome choices! I love Obsidian, and I really need to start reading Divergent!

  6. Great choices, The Secret History and The Bell Jar are both huge favorites of mine and I loved Divergent!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  7. Thanks for sharing Eva! I'm a huge JLA fan and I loved the Lux series! And as you saw Divergent was on my list so yay for us Divergent fans! I really want to try the Chicagoland Vampires series! Maybe this summer when I'm not in school I can give them a try!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier!

    1. You should definitely give Chicagoland a try -- I think it is such a great series -- not just as an urban paranormal series but out of all my favorite series, it is so well written!!

  8. I've only read DIvergent of these, but now I really want to read The Secret History!

  9. A lot of people recommend Divergent. I read it and enjoyed it, though I can't say I adored it as much as most people. That's the only book I've read on this list, but I've been dying to try out some JLA.

    My Top Ten! :)

  10. Interesting list :) I've only read Divergent. I think I attempted The Bell Jar back when I was at Uni but I had to stop in order to focus on the books I was supposed to be reading!

  11. I actually bought The Opportunist yesterday and Flat Out Love today so I'm happy to see them on your list! And I loved Divergent, so excited for the third book and the movie.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. Okay, I hope you will love both! The Opportunist is absolutely amazing!!!

  12. The only ones I've read are Divergent and Obsidian (both amazing)! But I've read excerpts of The Bell Jar in some of my university lectures and really need to make time for it at some point :)
    I've also heard great things about the Chicagoland Vampires series and I'll now check out some of those contemporaries...
    Thanks for sharing & stopping by!

  13. Ooh, I love the way you did your list. Going to have to add some of these to my Goodreads TBR!

Mini Joint Reviews: Sex, Love & Stiletto series by Lauren Layne

Today, I'm so excited to be posting mini joint reviews of the Sex, Love and Stilletto series by Lauren Layne, which Jasprit from The Reader's Den and I recently read together!
After the Kiss (Sex, Love & Stiletto #1) by Lauren Layne

Blurb from Goodreads:
In the first book of a delightful new series from Lauren Layne, the star columnist of Stiletto magazine will do anything for a story. Anything... except fall in love.

Julie Greene loves flings. Loves steamy first dates, sizzling first kisses, and every now and then, that first sexy romp between the sheets. Comfy pants, sleepy Sundays, movie nights on the couch? Shudder. But when Julie gets assigned the hardest story of her career—a first-person account of that magical shift between dating and "I do"—she'll need a man brave enough to give a total commitment-phobe a chance at more.

Normally, Mitchell Forbes would be exactly that man. A devastatingly hot workaholic who tends to stay in relationships for far too long,…

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
