Ten Books

Ten Books

My 10 books that have stayed with me over the years.

Go to your shelves.. Without over-thinking, just grab the first ten books that you think of – that have stayed with you long after you’ve finished reading them. Remember! Do not over think it!

1) Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor {Beautiful story, I devoured each book in the trilogy as soon as they were released.}

2) Stardust – Neil Gaiman {A great adventure I loved when I was younger}

3)The Old Man and The Sea – Ernest Hemingway {I have been reading this book every summer for as many years at the lake for as long as I can remember.. }

4) The Sugar Queen – Sarah Addison Allen {Learning to love yourself, open yourself up to new experiences, new friends, new love.. and it made my cherish my sister even more}

5) Graceling – Kristin Cashore {Kick ass, strong female.. doesn’t follow conventional gender roles and it is empowering}

6) Three Songs For Freedom – Maxine Trottier {I remember reading this book at my farm, and I just couldn’t put it down.. Coming of age story for the ages}

7) Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince – J.K. Rowling {Love the entire series, but I enjoyed this one the most. Harry Potter is one of the things my sister and I absolutely freak out on..}

8) The Fault in Our Stars – John Green {How John Green can write from the perspective a 16 y.o girl so profoundly is amazing. Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters’ story is too beautiful, and too heart wrenching.}

9) The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins {Strong female lead, I have read this books more than a few times.}

10) The Fellowship of The Ring – J.R.R. Tolkien {I read my Pops copies of The Hobbit, The Lord of The Rings, and The Silmarillion when I was young and I reread them now and again. Great Adventures =) }

Jack Skellington, R2-D2, Harry Potter (I made him out of polymer clay), Eiffel Tower, and The Tardis. The Jelly Sandwich necklace was a gift from a very special friend of mine, we worked together and I had heard about The Fault in Our Stars, and I was going to wait until it came out on paperback to buy and read it.. She disagreed with that notion and when I showed up at work the next day, her copy was sitting in my locker.. I read it in one sitting the next day.. I couldn’t put it down and I cried a lot. She also knew that I had seen the Peanut Butter and Jelly bff necklaces on Etsy and that I wanted them.. so she bought them for me.. I got Jelly and she got Peanut Butter. I love her friendship and her view of the world.
