Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.
Today’s Topic: Top Ten Books People Have Been Telling Us That We HAVE TO Read
1. Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil
Kellee highly recommends this book, but I haven’t gotten to it yet!
2. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Several people have recommended this book to me. It is an adult book, but even my past students are emailing me about it!
3. House of Purple Cedar by Tim Tingle
It is no secret that I love to read every Native American book. I am looking forward to this one, as it has been recommended to me.
4. Jumped In by Patrick Flores-Scott
I can’t wait to read this book, and it is a Walden Award finalist, too!
5. Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
A friend recommended this book. I don’t know anything about orphan trains, so it seemed really interesting to me.
And I cannot wait to read all of these!
1. I Will Save You and Mexican White Boy by Matt de la Pena
I know that these are some of Ricki’s favorite books, so I need to get to them. Also, I really enjoy Matt de la Pena as a person, and have enjoyed what I have read.
2. Absolutely Almost by Lisa Graff
This is on everyone’s favorite in 2014 lists, and it was recommended to me on Goodreads by a friend. I need to get it, so I can read it.
3. Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd
I have wanted to read Snicker since I saw Natalie at NCTE 2013, and everyone keeps on telling me I need to read it–I must get to it soon!
4. Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan
One of my friends recommended this book so much to me that she sent me a copy–now I just have to read it!
5. Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen
This is a book that all my teacher friends are shocked I haven’t read yet, and always insist I need to.
