Top Ten Tuesday - 7

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish for bloggers who like books and lists!

Top Ten Books I Had Very Strong Emotions About

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This is a pretty obvious choice but I had to include it because my mind was completely blown after reading it. And of course after the other two as well, but the first book started it all. Only like five months until the movie!!

2. Mostly Good Girls by Leila Sales
This book cracked me up; it was so funny! I was reading it and public and actually had to hold my laughter in so I didn't look like a complete crazy person. Occasionally I will just open it up and reread my favorite parts to get a laugh.

3. Tithe by Holly Black
I feel bad if there's any fans of this book, but I hated it! I don't really remember why but I do know that I felt like I couldn't relate to the main character and I didn't enjoy the fantasy part of it. Though I totally respect you if you like this book! (Somewhat.) Kidding!

4. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
After reading these books I had the emotion of extreme awesomeness. Not sure if that is real or not but you get my point.

5. The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson
I know I mentioned this last week but I was freaked out while reading this! It was pretty scary for a ten year old.

6. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer
I will admit that I enjoyed (somewhat) the first three books when I first read them (not anymore). But this book was awful and I seriously wanted to throw it across the room. Bella pregnant??!? And Renesmee????

7. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
For this I had the extreme emotion of being in love with St. Clair (and the novel as a whole, of course).

8. Past Perfect by Leila Sales
So funny!

9. The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale
This book had a part at the end where I just bawled my eyes out. And I hardly ever cry while reading books so this was significant. And it wasn't just a few tears; I was sobbing. Hmm...maybe I was having a bad day as well? I don't want to sound too crazy.

10. Heist Society by Ally Carter
I'm sorry that a lot of the same books keep appearing on these lists but what can ya do? Anyway my emotion was love and enjoyment because this was an awesome book!

Clearly I should read a Shannon Hale book, huh? Thanks for the fun and YA-centered list (so is mine). I have to put some of these on my TBR pile.

Amazing set of books! I'll admit that I loved Lola (and Cricket) more than Anna and I agree completely about Breaking Dawn.
I think I'll have to go read Mostly Good Girls ASAP but I highly doubt I'll control any public laughter outbursts - I'm really bad at containing the giggles!
