Top Ten Tuesday 2/1/11

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish

This week the topic was Top 10 Favorite Debuts:

Andrea = Odds, Tevya = Evens

1. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer: I just can't help myself. This book is my new addiction. I was so impressed that this was a debut novel and I can't wait to get more of the story. Thank you Andrea Cremer for bringing Ren into my life!

2. We Hate Everything But Boys by Linda Lewis: This is the book that really and truly began  my love for reading and started my series addiction. It was the first time ever that I begged my mom to go to the book store immediately upon the release of the next book in the series.

3. Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling: I cannot get enough of the HP universe even now. These are books I love to live in.

4. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer: The book that changed my world. LOL Seriously, Twilight is one of my all time favorite books.

5. The Everafter by Amy Huntley: This novel haunted me long after I had read the final word.

6. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer: One of my new all-time favorite books. I love the world she created for this series.

7. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting: This is one of my favorite new series. I love the characters and Violet's unique way of finding bodies. 

8. Dark Lover by J. R. Ward: This book introduced me to the thrill of adul paranormal romance. As much as I adore YA literature, there's nothing like a good adult read to escape the stress of the every day.

9. Lament by Maggie Stiefvater: This is the book that first introduced Maggie to the world. She has become one of my favorite writers. She is so talented! As much as I loved Shiver, this book is by far my favorite work she has done.

10. Wake by Lisa McMann - I love the Wake trilogy and I'm so looking forward to Cryer's Cross.


  1. Good to see a list from those who have different reading preferences than I do. My wish list keeps growing and growing, and that's a good thing!

  2. @J.C. - Thanks for stopping by! I enjoyed seeing the lists of people who read outside my typical genre. It inspired me to pick up some other titles I might not have given a chance in the past.

  3. OMG!! It's so glad to see that someone else feels that way about Twilight! I LOVED that books and have gotten all my friends to read it too. Also, the whole Harry Potter series is amazing! It's funny that I became such a fan of both since I was skeptical of them due to all the hype around them. Great Books! There are others on this list that I need to read ASAP :)

  4. Wow, Andrea Cremer's Nightshade made both of your lists. Guess I'll have to look into that one. :)

  5. I completely forgot about Twilight when making my list, lol.

  6. Just wanted to give my own shout-out to Maggie Stiefvater. . . she can create some of the most poetic prose I've ever had the pleasure of reading. :D

  7. Wow. Many new books for me on this list: Thanks for all the great ideas.

  8. The Twilight series is just something I can not force myself to read. It's almost like a little kid defiance. Maybe one day when the world is done with it's enthralled-ness of the series. Now if Rowling could just put out a few more Harry Potter books, I'd be really happy. lol

  9. Very good list. I thought about putting Dark Lover on mine but to be honest it wasn't my favorite of the series. I also couldn't bring myself to put Twilight on my list. I'm one of the few people I know who read them before they were the "cool new thing" and now I feel ashamed to even mention that I have :P

    Anyway thanks for stopping by and saying hi!

  10. Thank you for stopping by my top ten list yesterday! I haven't actuall yread any of these but I've seen them throughout the blogoshphere and I'm thinking about reading Nightshade. Great list :)

  11. I loved this week's theme! I totally agree -- Nightshade was amazeballs, and I'm so glad to see people professing some Twilight love! I'm so tired of all the hate. Great list!

  12. This is awesome, aside from HP i haven't read any of these but you guys make me want to look into them and try something new. (i'm trying to read outside my comfort zone more)

  13. Thank you for stopping by! I also loved "Nightshade" and I can't wait for its sequel. I'm leaning on towards Team Ren and I hope I'm not wrong. I also liked "The Body Finder" but I thought Violet's ability was really creepy.
