Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Buy This Second With Fully Loaded Gift Card


This weeks Top Ten Tuesday as hosted by The Broke and Bookish is all about what I would buy if I had a fully loaded gift card and let’s just say that if that were the case I would be able to do some serious damage. As is, I can charge up my Amazon account like I am not a low-paid teacher. Check out below to see what I would buy and don’t forget to leave a comment!

1. The Glittering Court by Richelle Meade: Huge fan of Meade’s but I did not allow myself to buy this one for fear of not liking it. My method is to grab a copy from the library first and then buy the book.

2. Day Zero by Kresley Cole: I’m a HUGE Arcana Chronicles fan. I mean HUGE! But given the many, many fantastic books coming out this August, I am putting this prequel on hold.

3. Torn (Wicked Saga Book #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout: I did not love the first installment of this book. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it, so this goes on the current-life wish list.

4.The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye: I have heard great things about this one, but because Skye is a new author I will grab this from the library first.

5. Ivory and Bone by Julie EshbaughI’m sold on the P&P aspect of this because who does not love Austen, but pre-historic….meh…idk.

6. Futhermore by Tahereh Mafi: This isn’t out yet but I already know I’m wish-listing it.

7. The Architect of Song by A.G. Howard: I’ll buy anything A.G. Howard creates. She gets me.

8. Unknown by Wendy Higgins: Wishlisting this until I hear reviews. Love Higgins but I haven’t heard a lot about this and it makes me nervous.

9. All Those Standalone Short Romances: Thank you for selling 12 books for $3.99….I can’t even start these because I need to know what happens at the end and I can’t afford that noise.

10. A Ton of MG Novels for My Classroom. 


Top Ten Tuesdays: Top 10 Authors of All Times




Last week I missed Top-Ten Tuesday, as hosted by the Broke and Bookish, but I’m excited to participate this week. This week’s topic is Top 10 Authors of All Times…cause yea that’s not going to be challenging or anything. 

1. J.K. Rowling: OBVIOUSLY. She is the Queen of the World. 

2. Rachel Hawkins: Hawkins has such a wonderful voice. She’s witty, she’s sassy, and overall I just                                                 love everything she writes.

3. Jennifer L. Armentrout: I adore her. She can write a romance and I’ll read it; write a sci-fi YA and                                                           I’ll read it; write a recipe…well you get it.

4. Cassandra Clare: Ummm have you read “The Mortal Instrument,” yea..nuff said.

5. Wendy Higgins: She invented a hot drummer who embodies the sin of lust and is also British. She                                           may possibly be my soulmate.

6. Kresley Cole: I love her hot-steamy YA and her hot-steamy romance. If she writes it, odds are I’ll read it.

7. Melissa Marr: I’ve been reading Marr since I was a teen and she always manages to amaze me with                                       her amazing female characters.

8. Martina Boone: Besides writing a great YA she is super-duper cool and nice.

9. Marissa Meyer: I’m not usually one for cyborg type stories, but Cinder is incredible.

10. A.G. Howard: She wrote one of the only Alice and Wonderland retellings I liked. Her mind is a                                              scary, funky place and I love it.
