Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over @ The Broke and the Bookish
This weeks topic is: Top Ten Books I'd Play Hooky With
Haaa. I saw this topic and I laughed. Because, I guess, you could say I'm playing hooky with every book I've read lately. I'm taking a semester off and working at a bookstore and reading. So if you look at it a certain way, it's kind of like playing hooky. But I'll pretend I'm still a motivated person and still in school - these are the books I'd skip class to read.
1. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
No way could you tear this book out of my hands once I picked it up.
2. Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
I was depressed when I had to stop reading in the middle and go to work. If my commitment had been class, I probably would have chosen the book (I'm such a bad student).
3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Actually, I kind of think I did read this instead of doing homework. (It happened a lot - thus, the taking time off).
4. The Selection by Kiera Cass
I think if I was ever in that - school sucks, people suck, life sucks - kind of mood - I'd stay just stay home in my pajamas and read this book.
5. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
Can't really speak for this one yet, but I know that when it comes it will take priority over everything else!
6. Harry Potter
Because in high school I actually DID fake sick a few times just so I could stay home to read one of these books for the umpteenth time.
7. Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
Well, I think it'd be dangerous to play hooky for this book. Because it's the kind of book that you blow something off to read, then suddenly you've given up everything to become a global wanderer. Which, really, is probably an okay thing.
8. Dreamless by Josephine Angelini
Ok, probably because I just finished a Starcrossed and Dreamless marathon, I kind of want to do it again. Reading both of these books straight through would definitely be worth playing catch up in real life later on.
9. The Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines
I started reading this book for the sole purpose of procrastinating. I wanted something that wouldn't keep me completely occupied, but the story surprised me and I wound up reading the whole thing straight through.
10. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
See reasons 1 and 4.
