Top Ten Tuesday – Andi’s Must Reads

Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) is on hiatus for a couple more weeks but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head so I’m going with it. I know it’s true that we, as book nerds, have a hard time picking our favorite books. Honestly I could probably tell you 50 books I want you to read. But there will always be those books that you just want everyone to read. There are just those books that you want to read over and over again yourself. Since I’m itching to actually read one of those special to me books, I thought I would tell you 10 books I think you need to read:


Anna and the French Kiss

Twenty Boy Summer


All in Pieces

Letters to the Lost

The Lumatere Chronicles

I’ll Meet You There

Open Road Summer

The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love

All Our Yesterdays

I’m sure you are wondering why these 10 books out of all 117 favorites on my Goodread shelf. It’s a good question. Like I said I could have given you a ton more. But these 10 are special to me in some way I can’t 100% explain. There is a magic in these books that just speaks to me and I think it will speak to you too.

What are some of your must reads? Have you read any of mine?

*If you haven’t read any of these books and would like to for my new feature New to You where you read and review the book on my blog, please contact me.

Top Ten Tuesday – Series

Technically the topic for today is 10 series I have been being to start which is fine and I’m sure I could come up with 10 if I did some searching. But honestly there are only 3 that I really need to start and 7 that I really need to finish. Starting series really isn’t my problem, it is finishing them that now seems to be an issue. So for today I have split this into two groups. The ones I need to finish and the two I need to start:

To Finish:

The Lunar Chronicles

New Soul


Snow Like Ashes

The Wrath & the Dawn

Curse Workers

Harry Potter

To Start:

Six of Crows

The Raven Cycle

The Illuminae Files

What series do you need to finish or start? What you read any of these?

Top Ten Tuesday – Father’s Day Freebie

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday (say that ten times fast) is a Father’s Day freebie. Basically we can do anything that is father related. As always the fab people at The Broke and the Bookish give you some topic suggestions and two of them struck my fancy. With that said, I am going to keep it simple and not give you ten. I am doing my own version today and you are getting Top Two Tuesday.

favorite dads in literature

In a Perfect World – Trish Doller
Probably has the best, hottest dad that I have ever read. Seriously I always am crushing on the adorable main boy in books but this was the first time my crush was on the dad. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Adam, but Casey was just super cool and hot and funny. Did I mention how attracted to him I am?

best father/daughter relationship

Second Chance Summer – Morgan Matson
This book is completely heartbreaking because of the father/daughter relationship in the story. It tore my heart out but I loved it so much. Taylor and her dad have such a real story that I can’t help but love them.

Like I said, simple this time.

What do you think? Have you read either of these books? Do you have any suggestions for me?
