Top Ten and Teaser Tuesday (8) + Tune In Tuesday (4)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
Top Ten Books I Wish I Could Read Again for the First Time 

1. Harry Potter by JK Rowling
When I first read this book I was in a contest with my friend to see who could complete the series the fastest (there were only four out at the time) and I was in a hurry reading it, so now I would like to go back and take my time reading them.

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
When I started to read this book I had a lot of other things to do for school so most of the time I was distracted while reading it and was also trying to read Saints At The River for another class as well.

3. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
 I had to read this book for my 10th grade English class and I was only reading it a chapter at a time so I wouldn't get too far ahead of my class; so I want to read it all at once instead of chopped up into chapters.

4. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
 I love this book and I would just like to go back and read it for the first time again!

5. Eragon by Christopher Paolini
 When I first read this book I found myself skimming a couple of parts...which I really need to break the habit of doing.

6. Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
When I first started to read this book it didn't immediately grab me so it took me a week and a half to finally get into the book, since I ended up enjoying it so much I would like to read it all at once.

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:

"Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry,” said Tessa.
-pg. 87 “Clockwork Angel” by Cassandra Clare

"It was Henry, to Charlotte’s surprise, who replied without turning, 'Inanimate objects are harmless indeed, Mr. Mortmain. But one cannot always say the same of the men who use them.'"
-pg. 150 “Clockwork Angel” by Cassandra Clare

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

For the month of October Tune in Tuesday will be featuring songs from soundtracks.

This week music is two songs from The O.C. These are some of my all time favorite songs!

Running Up That Hill by Placebo

Hallelujah by Imogen Heap

Forever Young by Youth Group

Happy Tuesday everyone!

  1. I hate that when schools chunk up books like that. Something like To Kill a Mockingbird has to totally be read right through. I was a rebel and read ahead ;)

  2. We totally read all the same books. (Except for Howl's Moving Castle - which is going on the TBR pile!)
    Here's mine: http://duckduckcow.blogspot.com/2011/10/teaser-tuesday-miss-peregrines-home-for.html

  3. The O.C. reminds me of my sister. She LOVED that show.

  4. The second teaser sounds like a gun control argument.

    Great teaser. Please check out my teaser.

  5. I hope to read Howl's Moving Castle soon. It's on the list of 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up.

    Here's my Top Ten for this week. Hope you'll stop by!

  6. I LOVE Forever Young by Youth Group!! so, so good :-)
