Top Ten Tuesday: Spring Fever: Book's I'd Play Hooky With

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Here's the schedule. This week it's all about books I'd drop everything and read for the day. :)
  1. Insurgent by Veronica Roth- Let's just say that I will be playing hooky the day this book is released!
  2. The Giver by Lois Lowry- You can read it in a day and it's such a powerful book! My first dystopian.
  3. The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien- I must reread this book this summer in preparation for the movie. I'd love to sit out on the beach and read but I don't live in California anymore! I'll have to make do with medieval ruins. Oh darn.
  4. Unearthly by Cynthia Neely- I'm reading this now and I wish I had the whole day today to finish it. Great stuff so far.
  5. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver- Just to go a long with Delirium, I need to take a day out real soon to read the second book! I can't wait... Must stick... with... queue.
  6. The Princess Bride by William Goldman- I've read this book and it is so hilarious. If you liked the movie and don't mind a narrator that gets really off topic, then you'll like this book! 
  7. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen- This book just reminds me of sunshine (even though it's set in gloomy England). I spent quite a lot of time reading this and Emma (which I don't like) on a beach trip.
  8. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince- This is my favourite HP book! I do sort of want to spend the whole day trying to reread the series, but I've got loads of other stuff to read and do. That's life. 
  9. The Uglies by Scott Westerfield- The start to one of my all-time favourite series and one full of rebelliousness!
  10. The Host by Stephenie Meyer- The movie teaser reminded me how much I liked this book! It reminds me of camping. Probably because the first time I read it I was living in a tent for 3 weeks without bathing properly. 
What's on your list?


  1. Pandemonium's awesome. I can't believe I forgot to stick Insurgent on my list! Just added The Giver to my TBR list, hadn't heard of it before.

  2. Never heard of The Giver? I read it when I was about 12. It's Middle Grade, so a quick read. It's had me hooked on dystopian/utopian stuff ever since.

  3. Yes, The Hobbit. Wonderful adventure!

    Here's my
    Top Ten Books I'd Play Hooky With.
    Hope you will stop by!

  4. Those are all great choices! Pandemonium is beyond amazing! It's definitely one that I would play hooky for. I still need to read The Hobbit! I definitely agree with The Giver, The Host, and HP. Love those!

  8. Great list! Totally agree with you on The Hobbit! Cannot wait for the movie in December! I think the Half Blood Prince is one of my favourite Potter books but I just love the Prisoner of Azkaban! Buckbeak! I loved the Princess Bride film so I must get hold of a copy of the book, sounds great :)

    Happy reading and I'm your newest follower :)
