Top Ten Tuesday - June 10th

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks' topic is: 
Top 10 Books You've Read So Far This Year.

Really???!? I need to remember what I've read and then rate them? Holy difficulty, Batman. I haven't been as diligent as I need to be in updating my GoodReads account with books that I've read, which made this weeks topic hard.

1. The Rosie Project. This is a recent read (my review here), and I LOVED.IT. I'm encouraging my fiance to read it because it's a satisfying love story without all of the cliche parts of a love story.
2. FanGirl. I wish I could read this again for the first time!
3. The Invention of Wings. I will read literally anything Sue Monk Kidd writs. This novel reminds me of The Help, which I also loved.
4. The Museum of Extraordinary Things. The writing was so lyrical, the story so unique and engaging...I loved it.
5. Happily Ever After. This was such a cute story, with a premise that I had never heard of before. Such a good summer read.
6. A Circle of Wives. This one had great characters...all three of the wives were so real.
7. The Impossible Knife of Memory. This is a YA book, but I think it's so important for anyone and everyone to read. It touches on PTSD through the eyes of a service-members daughter.
8. Pastrix. I.can't.even. Just....unique. Lovely. Real and raw.
9. To All the Boys I've Loved Before. A cute YA story, but I loved the family aspect and the independence of the Lara Jean.
10. We Are Water. Wally Lamb consistently writes epic novels. Literally. Just...so complex, thought provoking and accessible.


  1. The Invention of Wings has been on my to-read list forever! Every time I see it on the NYT bestseller list (which is often) I'm struck by the summary. Glad you said it's like The Help. I'll definitely have to move it up the to-read list :)

  2. I still haven't read FanGirl, but I really loved Attachments and I think the premise of Landline sounds awesome, so I'm definitely looking forward to that. Great list -- here's mine

  3. Fangirl is such an amazing book and it made my list. I loved how I could see myself reflected in the story and it was just so much fun! Great list :)
