Life has been so busy. I completely missed last week’s TTT, and I didn’t want to miss this week’s. Luckily these have been easier weeks to put together.
Except for me, since I thought I really need to pick books I haven’t talked about a million times.
Some of these are more recent, some are older, but I think I’ve only mentioned them once.
by Mariana Zapata
I’m loving this new trend of mine, to basically read all of Mariana Zapata’s backlog. I’ve now read 5 books, and Kulti is still be best one so far.
2. The House in the Cerulean Sea
by TJ Klune
I said I wouldn’t talk about BOOKS I’d previously pushed. Not authors. It wouldn’t be an honest list if I didn’t include at least one book from my favorite author. TJ Klune always makes me smile. The House in the Cerulean Sea was special though, because of the children.
3. Cancer Ships Aquarius
by Anyta Sunday
I know, another book in the Leo Loves Aries series. What I can say, it’s fantastic romance. Every single one makes me smile, but Cancer Ships Aquarius is the most recent one, and comes in at 2nd place.
by RJ Palacio
Wonder made me smile because it’s just so precious. When I think of stories that lift you up, and fill you with joy, I always think of Wonder. Every child should read this book, or have it read to them.
5. Hard Time
by Cara McKenna
I love Cara McKenna. Hard Time is my favorite. I think I’m a sucker for prison romance books, which is an odd thing to write. Hard Time gave me all the good stuff, and all the swoons. I’d really like to find time for a reread.
6. Winter Wonderland
by Heidi Cullinan
I think maybe I’ve talked about this book more than once, but I can’t help it. You want to talk about a book that makes you smile, well in this one there are penis snow sculptures. How do you not smile at that!?
7. Eleanor & Park
by Rainbow Rowell
Rainbow Rowell is a smile-worthy author. All of them make me giggly, but my favorite is Eleanor and Park is my favorite. There’s something innocent between Eleanor and Park that you can’t help but love. Plus, add in all the 80’s references for us middle age ladies, and it made my face hurt from all the smiles.
8. Dark Lover
by JR Ward
You want to talk about series I want to reread, and this is it. Is Black Dagger Brotherhood perfect, no. It is one of the most highly entertaining romance series I’ve ever read. There’s a bromance banter between these males that is unlike any other.
9. Anna and the French Kiss
by Stephanie Perkins
Anna and the French Kiss was a YA romance I read early on in Goodreads. I loved it. I loved the characters, and the romance. I loved how Etienne was perfect, even though he was short. He made me picture Zac Efron. It’s an adorable story.
10. First Grave on the Right
by Darynda Jones
First Grave on the Right didn’t hook me the first time I read it. I thought the humor was overdone. The second time I read it, I asked myself what I’d been smoking. Charley is hilarious, and I loved her constant snark throughout the series. I’m actually devastated it’s over. I’m praying for more.
