Top Ten and Teaser Tuesday (6) + Tune In Tuesday (2)

Top Ten Books I Want To Reread

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
 This is one of the series that I love to read over and over and over again! It will probably always be my favorite!

2. The Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld
 This is my favorite series of his and I have read this series a lot as well! I enjoy reading his books and I'm constantly looking for ways to get my hands on his books that I don't currently own.

3. Impulse by Ellen Hopkins
 Out of all of her books this one is probably my favorite! I've been dying to reread this one for awhile now but I just haven't found the time yet :(

4. Saints at the River by Ron Rash
 I was assigned to read this book for my Eng 102 class and I did not have high hopes for it because of the cover or the synopsis. It just wasn't in the genre that I was reading at the time. However, when reading this book I fell in love with it. Ron Rash is a local writer and his book takes place in Tamassee, SC (I went to a track meet at their high school). This is a fantastic book and I would definitely recommend it for you to read.

5. The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkein
Love! Love! Love! I absolutely love this book!!

6. Burned by Ellen Hopkins
 This book is probably my second favorite book of hers. If I remember correctly the male protagonist is totally crush worthy and not many books of her's have that element. I also did not expect the way that she ended the book AT ALL! Total shocker for me!! This is probably one of her saddest books :(

7. The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
 This series is probably one of my favorite high fantasy genre books and I enjoy going back and rereading it every so often. Also the fourth and final book is coming out in November so I am definitely due for a reread!!

8. Mad Kestrel by Misty Massey
I read this book about three years ago for my school's SCYABA contest and I enjoyed it a lot! It was one of my favorite books from that year's list! The last two weeks I have had this urge to reread it so that is why it is on the list!

9. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
This is on my list of favorite books and it's obviously my favorite book by the author :P! I was really skeptical when I was first told to read but I'm really glad that I did. It definitely has a slow start but when it gets going it really takes off.

10. This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
 This is my second favorite book by Sarah Dessen (The Truth About Forever is my favorite) and all of her books are must reads! All of the guys will have you in love with them before the book is even halfway done. They are just simply fantastic!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read, open to a random page, and share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.

My Teaser:

"If someone were to look carefully, the angry red marks underneath the fine cotton of her blouse would be clearly visible. But nobody ever does look carefully."

-pg. 26 "Willow" by Julia Hoban

A weekly feature hosted by Ginger at GReads! that showcases music!!

This week I went with songs from The Beatles and John Lennon :) <3

Can't Buy Me Love by The Beatles
(my all time favorite Beatles song!)

Blackbird by The Beatles

Imagine by John Lennon

Well that is my Tuesday, now off to bed I go :)!

  1. Good teaser, sounds like another child abuse book.

    Here's ours: http://ourstack.blogspot.com/2011/09/tuesday-teasers-from-debbie-macomber.html

  2. Ouch, sad but true...

    Anyway, your Mad Kestral book sounds fun to read - goodreads TBR list + 1 :)

    My teaser is at www.readseverything.blogspot.com

  3. Wow, that's a great teaser. I'm definitely intrigued! I'm not even sure I'd heard of it before, but now I definitely want to take a closer look. Thanks for sharing it!

    My teaser is from a book I absolutely loved; Divergent! Click to be teased!

  4. Ahhh! Harry Potter is a great choice! It's a series I can re-read over and over as well!

    AND I LOVE THE BEATLES LIKE A MAD WOMAN! Can't Buy Me Love is one of my favourites too!

    Hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

    My Top 10 & Tune In Tuesday: http://bookcrookliza.blogspot.com/2011/09/meme-tuesday-top-10-tuesday-and-tune-in_27.html

  5. Just the other day I went through my iTunes & made myself a special Beatles mix :-) they will always be a fave of mine. Great picks!

  6. I am a huge Beatles fan! Loved the songs you picked!

  7. Great teaser! I haven’t had the chance to read this one yet, but it’s definitely being moved up on my TBR list! Thank you for sharing! :)

    Here’s mine:


  8. I am not a collective Beatles fan, yet I dont deny they were Brill and they have some great songs..Blackbird to me is one of them. But John Lennon...I cant say enough about him. If someone asked me my top three favorite songs of all time Imagine would be one of them. I recently went to New York City and spent hours in Strawberry Fields. There was such a peaceful air to it, which is fitting for a man who spent his last years fighting for it!

  9. Nice teaser. I like Sarah Dessen and would love to read Uglies. I have never been a super Beatles fan, so their music is not all too familiar with me unless I hear it first and then I nod and go oh yeah I remember that.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Here's Mine:
    My Top Ten Tuesday

  10. Great teaser!

    here's mine:


  11. The Beatles! You really can't go wrong with them, I swear. And your teaser sounds so sad! Love your Top 10, too... :) Excellent post!

    My Tune in Tuesday pick!

  12. I definitely need to re-read the Inheritance cycle in preparation for Book 4, and I'd love to re-read The Host as well. I'm not a fan of the Twilight series, but I LOVED The Host! :)

    Also, I really enjoyed Willow by Julia Hoban. Hope you're enjoying it too!

  13. Harry Potter, the Hobbit and definitely the Inheritance cycle :)

  14. I enjoyed the first in the Uglies series, but I haven't read the others. I'm sure they are fun reads.
