Top Ten Tuesday ~ My Most Prized Possessions

Ali here ~

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday everyone!! I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! Today’s Top Ten topic is Books That I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch (too special/valuable, perhaps?)

Ok, so I’m not really a don’t touch kind of girl, so I’m going to be sharing my top 10 most prized possessions with you today. My top 5 are some very early edition Hardy books. These were passed to me from my grandmother. It was a bit bizarre, too, because she knew I had a great love for books but never told me she had them. I didn’t know until they were willed to me.

Ali’s May TBR

I spent a while last night weeding through my TBR on Goodreads. I narrowed it down to all the books that I am actually planning on reading soon. I’m determined to only add to it when I come across a book that I’m actually going to read. Now let’s see if I can stick to that. EEK! Definitely easier said than done! So here are the books I’m planning on reading this month ~

Review ~ November 9

November

Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with an unforgettable love story between a writer and his unexpected muse.

Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day of her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

*****My 5 Star Review*****

I’m a big time reader. I am always reading. I’m not a big TV watcher and I spend my evenings in a book. I often read from about 8pm till about 2am. I get in other reading during the day, too, as part of my homeschooling my kids. I don’t go anywhere without my kindle. So, the truth of the matter is that I usually have my nose in at least a few books every day.

Now here’s the thing. I finished November 9 Thursday. It’s Monday afternoon and I still haven’t picked up a book. Talk about a book hangover! It’s like I’m stuck!

As usual, Colleen does dialogue so well. Even lacking a great plot, her dialogue would ROCK! Here’s the thing. This plot also rocked. It was really like two major plots all rolled into one, and the first plot was strong enough that if you wiped out the rest of the awesomeness, I still would have given it 5 stars.

I also loved all the bookish talk! It felt like a constant shout out to bookaholics like myself! It was pure awesomeness.

You can expect hilarity. You can expect tears. You can expect an unforgettable story that will stick with you looooong after the last page! HIGHLY recommended to all contemporary romance fans.

Happy Reading,

Alison
