I saw this idea and loved it: Top ten Tuesday :)
(When and if I remember) I'll create a list if my top ten favorites on Tuesdays! As always please share your ideas (and favorites) as well.
This Tuesday I'm going to share my:
Top Ten books (to snuggle up with hot cocoa and read under blankets on the couch) --- they aren't necessarily my top ten favorite books ever, though obviously I like each, but each has a reason to make me want to snuggle up as I read them.
1) Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire - once I started reading this one I had the hardest time putting it down. I'd read at work, while walking outside, and really anywhere. Something about it was just addictive. The love story had something, and I'm still not sure what, that I just adored. I'm actually about to reread it soon.
2) Size 12 Isn't Fat by Meg Cabot - okay this one is actually four books (I don't play by the rules very well) because I'm including the whole Heather Wells series. I have something for Meg's writing. These books made me laugh out loud while in public (embarrassing no?) and again stay up too late reading. Heather makes me smile because she thinks a lot of crazy things that I would or do too.
3) Twilight by Stephanie Meyer - okay I realize this is beating a dead horse. Everyone hates Twilight by now. But I can still reread the first one and find myself smiling. I'll always be a teenage girl at heart!
4) I've got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella - again I found myself smiling while reading. This one was endearing and cute. If you haven't noticed I have a read soft spot for romantic comedy types!
5) Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling - this one is probably my favorite of the series because of S.P.E.W.! :) Plus it hasn't gotten super dark yet and my favorite owl is still alive.
6) Marked by P.C. And Kristin Cast - again a series, you may be starting to wonder if I only read series. The first is my favorite because the whole world hasn't started falling apart yet. Also I heart Zoe.
7) Every Boy's Got One by Meg Cabot - another by Meg, aaaaaaand another in a series. This one stole my heart because of her love for cats and the song Fat Bottomed Girls!
8) Lipstick Jungle by Candace Bushnell - this one was a page turner for me for a very different reason. I wasn't giggling or rooting for corny love, but I was watching real women characters with real lives and real problems.
9) Serial by Jack Killborn - this is is a sick horror. One of my favorite holidays is Halloween, and I love scary movies. This one fits in with that part of me. I read a few others intertwined or stemming from this one, and I loved how dark each got.
And 10) Cut by Patricia McCormick - this one is sad and intense, but it has shows real characters struggling with serious problems. I've reread it twice in the years after I first snuggled up to read it.
