Bella and I had a lovely afternoon consisting of the McDonald's PlayPlace, the public library, and a late nap. But it was at the public library that I arrived at the very important decision to revisit the books I've loved most in recent memory as today's Top Ten Tuesday. Then, because of immense snow day amnesia, I had to check and confirm that today was in fact Tuesday. Finally, my last thought on the topic was:
This could veeeeeerrry easily get out of hand.
So I promise to be sanely brief in my descriptions of each of these lovely tomes. Okay, so most of them won't be tomes. I've been on a Young Adult kick in recent years. But I will use the cover images as my measuring stick and promise to adhere to that length requirement.
I also promise to avoid over-summarizing and will provide only 100% completely opinionated commentary.
For this list, I'm limiting myself only to titles from my Goodreads shelf. If you don't know what Goodreads is (and, therefore, don't know what you're missing) or you do but you don't follow me, go follow me here. (Also, all cover images in this post are from the site.)
Furthermore, as it turns out, most of these books either already are movies, are movies in production, have been optioned as movies, or have been ruined in movies. I'm not sure how I feel about all of this, but I just thought I'd pass that little tidbit along.
Ready? I'm not sure I am, but here goes nothing....
In no particular order:
pumped about the cast for this one!)
So there you have it, the books that have made me laugh and cry (mostly cry, it seems....thanks, Veronica Roth), my completely arbitrary Top Ten Books I Love list. Here's to hoping that some of my 2014 reads are worthy of the company.
What books have made an impact on you and would be worthy of your Top Ten? And, more importantly, who can you talk into reading them with you so you can commiserate about how mad you are at Veronica Roth? (Just kidding. Sort of.)
