I'm Gonna Love It, Hug It, Squeeze It, and Call it George {A Top Ten Tuesday Post}

I've been in and out here recently. Every time I think I'm going to post more often; weekly, twice a week, daily... life just seems to get in the way. Lack of internet at home, daughter having surgery, my own personal issues, kitchen remodel, keeping busy at work... the first thing to go is always the blog. Which, in the grand scheme of things, makes total sense. I mean, in reality, it's the least important thing. But I love doing it. So...  yeah. I'm just going to keep on tryin'. :)

Because I love doing the Top 10 Tuesday Meme... Here we go!
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they provide a Top Ten topic for you to create your list, then you share it on their post so others can find you. :)

  ♥ Top Ten Books I Read in 2013

Since, as I've said, I've been flitting, it seems fitting that today's Top Ten was a Rewind - choose one you've missed or would like to re-do! :) So I chose this one. Due to my inability to be consistent, some of these may link to reviews and some may not. I thought about doing on about the books I *didn't* love, but then thought I'd rather rave than rant. :)

What books did you love that you read in 2013?



  1. Great pick. A lot of these are ones I really want to read - especially Eleanor and Park because I have heard so many amazing things. Nice list :) My TTT.

    1. I've recommended E&P to so many people. ;) Hope you love it when you get around to it.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Splintered and Unhinged! *fangirls endlessly* I have Unhinged (FINALLY) to read and I'm sooo excited. Just have to finish Throne of Glass and I'm sooo in. I really liked Eleanor & Park, but I read that this year. And I have Anna and the French Kiss on my shelf now too! EEP. So many awesome books. :) My TTT!

    1. I was super excited to get a NetGalley copy of Unhinged. The only problem? Having to wait even longer for Ensnared. lol I absolutely love that series.

      Thanks for visiting. :)

  3. I still haven't read most of these but am super excited to start the Splintered books and the Raven Boys - they look so awesome!
