Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
This week theme is Beach Reads Week. That means top ten great beach reads, ten books I plan to read on the beach, ten beach reads for those who don’t like typical beach reads, ten authors who are my go-to for beach reads, etc. Since we don’t have summer here and I don’t usually go to beach to read, I’ll go with Ten Books I Feel Like Reading on a Warm, Sunny Day. Close enough, eh? 😛
This generally means light reads, page turner, mostly stand alone books with cute romance and happy ending. It’s a book that I could just enjoy without having to worry about suspense and plot twists. Pretty much books with predictable story line and a lot of cliche, giddy moments in it ♥
This book has been featured on list of 10 Books I Feel Differently About After Time Has Passed and review that I’m not even gonna waste the time to explain about it anymore. It is simply good and sweet and it’s something I can always pickup anytime I need a boost of happiness 🙂
Another book with a dose of happiness. Pretty much the same with Isla. Anna is so undeniably cute and adorable. There are so many lines in the book that makes me smile and giggle. I’m laughing and blushing so much during this book! ♥
This is such an adorable read. A witty poor girl meets a swoon worthy rich boy. A little bit cliche but regardless, highly enjoyable. The humors are just so funny and the romance is totally sweet! Kasie West is definitely my auto read author when it comes to young adult contemporary 🙂
Since You’ve Been Gone is the story about a girl on a journey to find herself. It is probably the only Morgan Matson book that I enjoyed. It is highly predictable, but I kind of like its simplicity and predictability. It is also set in the summer and there are a lot of beach moments involved so it’s only fitting that this book made the cut 🙂
Another piece by the awesome Ms. Kasie West. Although not as good as the previous books, I still found myself enjoying it to the bits. I like the main characters as well as the side ones, they’re funny, entertaining, and they help build the story. It’s a bit ftv-ish, but it still melts my heart 😛 I’ve read it 2 or 3 times so far.
Cute teenage romance combines with family drama always win my heat. It sure makes a good summer read. Sweet and quick. So many emotions involved. Wonderful page turner. Lurrrrvin the main character so much because Jase is just a perfect guy made in heaven 😛 on the other hand, there’s certain annoying character that I just wanted to punch.
This is probably the least innocent of all because the characters are all grown up instead of highschoolers and college students. It is ridiculously funny! Hot, caring, and funny photographer who can make the most delicious dinner ever. Witty girl. Love hate, cutesy romance with a lot of flirtatious moments 😛 I’m a sucker for this kind of one-time read. Though, I feel like there’s lack of conflict, I still enjoy it a lot.
For some reasons, this book stirred so much emotion in me. It is so deep and I always love a good family drama. Despite the depth and sensitivity of the story, I still found it a light read. Finished it in just a couple of sittings. I love the main characters and the dynamic between them. Their chemistry is just so undeniable! Love love love ♥
This, my friend, is another definition of cliche. A super hot high school quarterback as main character? Check. BUT that doesn’t mean it’s not good. It’s about friendship, self healing, self discovery, and obviously, love. Though I have to admit the ending was very much too good to be true. This book isn’t really well known and I forget how I stumbled into it in the first place.
It is probably the darkest book among the others on the list but I just love it. It’s the only truly good and not overrated book of John Green that I like. It is genius, brilliant, extremely beautiful, and so much better than TFiOS and Paper Towns. It was a quick read for me but it still managed to emotionally wrecked me.
