Top Ten Tuesday (7)

February 21, 2012

I am participating in Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Each week, there is a specific topic for a top ten list.

This weeks topic is:
Top Ten Books I'd Quickly Save If My House Was Going To Be Abducted By Aliens

1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
My absolute favourite book of all time. One of my first picks, definitely.

2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I loved this book. So, so much. And the cover is amazing.

3. Disney's Classic Treasury: Volume One
Probably my favourite book from my childhood, including some of my favourite Disney stories including Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan :)

4. The Host by Stephanie Meyer
I have read this book a couple of times and it is one of the few books I have actually re-read so far. I loved it. Twas amazing.

5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Amazing. Do I really need to explain myself on this one?

6. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I am not cheating and counting the series as one book.. or maybe this is a way of just filling up the top ten list? Who knows ;)

7. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Obviously. Can't read the first two and miss out on the last!

8. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
I loved this book. It was so, so good. Would love to re-read this. Plus the cover is gorgeous.

9. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
I loved Lola more than Anna... didn't think that was possible. But I would choose this because it is an AMAZING romance. Plus it has Anna and St Clair in it as well, so it's a snippet of Anna and the French Kiss alongside a new romance.

10. Room by Emma Donoghue
This was an incredible book. And very adorable.

Might add some pretty pictures (aka covers) soon.. Maybe


  1. Almost every single day, there will be one post somewhere that I read reminding my I haven't read Anna and the French Kiss or Lola and the Boy Next Door. They both sound so amazing, I really need to read them.
    The Hunger Games trilogy is a given, amazing!
    Great picks.(:

  2. The Book Thief is a classic! It would be a tragedy to lose such a good book. I'm also nuts of ANNA and LOLA! Best YA contemporaries I've ever read.

  3. Those are all fantastic choices! I love Lola so much!! And Mara of course!! Great list!
    My Top Ten Tuesday

  4. The Hunger Games was on my list as well. That would probably be the first book I'd grab during the emergency lol

  5. I loved the Book Thief too! It's heart breaking but so creative and beautifully written.

  6. Well, I've already read Divergent and I'm looking forward to Insurgent.

    The idea of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is interesting. Is it one that can be read by a male audience. Feel free to tweet your reply. :)
