Top Ten Tuesday #95

Hosted by the Broke and the Bookish!

Top Ten "Why I Read What I Read" Books

I just word vomited out that title.

Why do I read the books I read? Well, mainly because of you guys. And media. And I just cannot pick for myself anymore.

Weeks and months of telling Amber I'll read Because You'll Never Meet Me someday, I finally did it! Last month too! And I absolutely loved it. I actually have a whole list of recommendations from some of my favorites, because if I forget for one second I'll get yelled at.

Before becoming a book blogger, I joined a couple of groups on Goodreads. I asked about book recommendations that had not much romance but included magic, and I got Sabriel! It's now one of my favorite books, and I'm currently on the last book in the trilogy (as a reread), because Goldenhand is coming out soon!

I meant to read The Knife of Never Letting Go during The Bookish Games, but I did not. But then I read it during the summer and now all is good! Except my heart.

My ex-housemate brought Stitches home with her. It's a graphic novel that was assigned for her class. I read it. I don't remember what I read, but I read it.

Shannon recommended The Memory Book to me! Which was a perfect fit because it's a young adult version of Still Alice basically. 

It's no surprise that I read everything that has to do with WWII, but I had never read The Diary of a Young Girl. That is, until Ely @ Tea & Titles forced me to. My heart is also still broken from that. 

Here's another book Shannon raves about. Denton Little's Deathdate. I will never not pronounce it and type it as Denton's Little Deathdate. I am sorry.

I would have NOT read The Way of Kings if Faye @ The Social Potato didn't host a readalong for it. With Twitter discussions. That now that I think back on it, were super spoiler-y to everyone. But no one really cared haha.

I literally found the description of Dragon's Bait on Tumblr. I had to search through all the notes to find the title of the book, because I NEEDED it in my life. It turned out to be a very good children's book. And a good break from college.

Yeah. I read A Court of Thorns and Roses because of all the drama around it. I'll get to the sequel one day.

Do you have any recommendations for me? List your favorites below!
