Top Ten Tuesday 09/09/2014


While I usually post both a book review and my Top Ten Tuesday post on Tuesdays, I am going to cut back to just doing Top Ten Tuesdays today and every following Tuesday. That way I can schedule the review I would be posting today another day and can fill out the weeks a little better as classes get crazier. As you all probably know by now, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I am really excited for this week’s topic because I feel like I will easily reach ten authors with no problem, sooooo this Tuesday’s topic is:

Top Ten Underrated Authors or Books in X genre

I am going to fill it in Top Ten Underrated Young Adult Authors. For pictures this week I am going to include a picture of my personal favorite from that particular author. I apologize if you think I misplace an author on here, but these are authors I feel like are underrated for whatever reason whether it be I don’t see many blog reviews on their books or I don’t hear people talk about them a lot.

1.) Alyson Noel – I love her books, especially her standalone ones like Saving Zoe, Laguna Cove, Kiss & Blog, Faking 19 and…


2.) Abbi Glines – I really liked The Vincent Boys which led me to read Fallen Too Far and fall in love with it

16070903 (1)

3.) Jessi Kirby – After falling head over heels in love with Moonglass I have really enjoyed her other novel as well


4.) Nina de Gramont – I hadn’t heard of her until I randomly picked up Every Little Thing in the World and cannot wait to read her other books


5.) Miranda Kenneally – I love, love, love all of her books that I have read so far


6.) Emmy Laybourne – Everyone is all ga-ga over The Hunger Games, yet her trilogy Monument 14 was so much more terrifying and realistic


7.) Sarah Ockler – When it comes to me forget Sarah Dessen, I love Sarah Ockler’s books especially…


8.) Sara Shepard – Everyone only knows her for Pretty Little Liars, but she has written The Lying Game series, other novels and has another YA thriller-mystery series coming out soon (more or less underrated for her other novels)


9.) Lauren Barnholdt – Definitely one of my top ten favorite authors


10.) Susane Colasanti – I really have enjoyed every one of her novels so far but never see any reviews for them


So there are my Top Ten Underrated Young Adult Authors. This list was definitely the easiest and quickest I have made in the history of Top Ten Tuesdays.


Top Ten Tuesday 07/29/2014


Thank goodness for a super easy week for Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. So you’re probably wondering what is this week’s super, incredibly easy topic? Well this week’s topic is:

Ten Authors I Own The Most Books From

1.) Sara Shepard (17)


2.) Alyson Noel (7)


3.) Susane Colasanti (5)


4.) Ann Brashares (5)


5.) Stephanie Meyers (5)


6.) Jenny Han (4)


7.) James Marsden (4)


8.) Sarah Dessen (4)


9.) Deb Caletti (4)


10.) Nicole Polizzi (Snooki) (4)


An honorable mention that just missed the list:

-Abbi Glines (I have 2 paperback copies of her books & 3 Kindle versions)


Yes, yes, yes…I have four books written by Nicole Polizzi (Snooki) and yes I have read all four of them and am no ashamed either. I was a fan of both Snooki and the show Jersey Shore and am still a loyal fan of Snooki. If you want to judge me go ahead but seriously if you are, get off your high horse. (Baby Bumps was actually a really good book and gave you insight to a real pregnancy. She didn’t sugar coat it like most do, she told it how it is and I liked that she was so honest.) Rant done.

As for the rest of the books, I felt like Sara Shepard was a given. She’s written 17 books in the Pretty Little Liars series so far with one more coming this winter, and she also wrote The Lying Game series which I serious need to finish. I’d say about half of the author’s books that made my list, I haven’t even read yet. I will get around to it but as of now they are pretty low on my priority list.

Did any of the authors that made my list also make yours? If so which ones and how high or low on your list were they compared to mine?
