Tell Me (Top Ten) Tuesday


Tell Me Tuesday is a weekly blog feature put on by La La in the Library.  It is where we discuss what we have been, currently are, and will be reading.  What are you reading? Tell me.



Check out my review of these books here.

Broken Things by Lauren Oliver

Broken Things by Lauren Oliver

This was not my favorite Lauren Oliver book.  The premise of the story is really great but not executed the best.  I will have to say, however, I didn’t know who the killer was.




Book Blurb

After Ali’s father passes away, he leaves his one and only prized possession—a 1968 Firebird convertible—to his daughter. But Ali doesn’t plan on keeping it. Not when it reminds her too much of all her father’s unfulfilled promises. So when she finds a buyer three hundred miles up the Pacific coast willing to pay enough money for the car to save her childhood home, Ali can’t wait to get going. Except Ali has no idea how to drive a stick shift. But guess who does?

Ali’s ex-boyfriend, Nico.

Book Blurb

The breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance.

At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge—for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins, for a miracle.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.


Thanksgiving/Thankful Freebie


I am thankful for these 10 book series.

This was the first book series I ever read!  My library didn’t have all of them so they had to borrow them from libraries for me. I am thankful for this series because they taught me that girls are smart and can do anything they want to.

I read this series when I was older and fell in love with it.  I still find it so interesting and when I read them, I am thankful for electricity, telephones, and indoor toilets!

I am thankful for this series because it was one of the series of books that my kids actually liked.  They weren’t big readers but they did like the Narnia books.

I know this series gets a lot of hate but I am thankful for this series because it is the series that got me started on reading YA and fantasy.

There are so many reasons I am thankful for the Harry Potter series but the main one is that it was a place of escape during a time when I needed it most.

I am thankful for this series because it is J.K. Rowling writing for adults and it is amazing!

I am thankful for this series because it just makes me laugh! Louisa is one of my favorite fictional characters.

    Those Ingalls Wilder books look great with the spines all matched up like that. And yay of course to Tolkien and Narnia. And Nancy Drew! I wish I still had all the Nancy and Hardy Boys books I had…
