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!

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of:  My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend , which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother. I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton

Review: The Cave Dwellers by Christina McDowell

The Cave Dwellers by Christina McDowell Blurb from Goodreads : A compulsively readable novel in the vein of The Bonfire of the Vanities—by way of The Nest—about what Washington, DC’s high society members do away from the Capitol building and behind the closed doors of their suburban mansions. They are the families considered worthy of a listing in the exclusive Green Book—a discriminative diary created by the niece of Edith Roosevelt’s social secretary. Their aristocratic bloodlines are woven into the very fabric of Washington—generation after generation. Their old money and manner lurk through the cobblestone streets of Georgetown, Kalorama and Capitol Hill. They only socialize within their inner circle, turning a blind eye to those who come and go on the political merry-go-round. Parents and their children living life free of consequences in a gilded existence of power and privi
