Top Ten Tuesday

Today I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books To Read In A Day

The China Garden1. The China Garden by Liz Berry.  At only 288 pages it is a shorter book and was one of the first YA books I read that hinted at the paranormal.  It is a great 
book that not many people know about.  

2. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson.  I started this book at the airport waiting for my plane to board and 4 hours later when the plane landed I had finished it.  I loved it and was so addicted to it I couldn't put it down.

3. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry.  A short but moving novel that will stick with you long after you've finished reading it. 

The Perks of Being a Wallflower4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.  While this book is not for everyone, I found it funny and heartbreaking.  It's an emotional rollercoaster that deals with many issues and situations of a young boy in high school.

5. The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan.  This is a funny and engaging book that you won't be able to put down.  It's a fast, easy read and 100% enjoyable.

6. A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris.  These are short stories in the Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampires series.  They are quirky, sexy and always entertaining.
Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress
7. Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie.  The story involves the joy of discovering and reading banned books.  A subject after my own heart...gotta love it.

8. Touch of Twilight an anthology with stories from Calista Fox, Erin Quinn, and Mary Leo.  All of the stories are short and filled with a bit of romance and a touch of paranormal.  

9. Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling.  Obviously it's no H.P. but it does give us a little more insight to the last H.P. book. 

To Kill a Mockingbird10. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.  A story that I read every year.  It is so moving and unforgettable that the pages will fly by.   


  1. Gah! I've only read two books on that list! Will have to add the others to the old TBR. And it's been years since I've read To Kill A Mockingbird. Gonna have to make time to reread it.

  2. I love the Lightening Thief and the rest of that series! They are so amazing. I haven't read To Kill a Mockingbird. I'm reading it in school next year but maybe I'll get a head start and read it during the summer!


I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
