Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I’m Thankful For

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I’m Thankful For (Happy Thanksgiving week in the USA!). 


1. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

This was the first book that really made me examine my beliefs on life and death.

2. Bright Side by Kim Holden

Every day should be my best. Do epic. That’s what this book taught me.

3. When it Rains by Lisa De Jong

There was a description of different kinds of love that really hit home with me in this book.

4. Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn

Nine Minutes taught me to push my reading boundaries. It made me realize that even if I don’t like a blurb, I may like a book. Take chances.

5. Slammed by Colleen Hoover

I don’t remember how I came across Slammed but it opened me up to a whole new genre and made me search for new adult writers.

6. Grip by Kennedy Ryan

The social commentary in this book was amazing. It really hit home in today’s society. I can’t recommend it enough.

7. The Sweet Valley Twins by Francine Pascal

I’ll always be thankful to my first favorite series for my love of reading. It’s the first book I can remember wanting desperately to read.

8. The Beach Trees by Karen White

After my daughter was born, my mom used to watch her once a week so I could get away. I would hang out at Borders and browse. The Beach Trees caught my eye and I decided to give it a shot. It made me fall in love with fiction set in the South. It also made me a fan of women’s fiction.

9. Making Faces by Amy Harmon

I can’t really explain well how much this book touched me. I would just say read through the quotes section for it on Goodreads. You can find them here.

10. The Hard Count by Ginger Scott

The Hard Count is yet another book with a great social commentary, but this time from high school students’ perspectives. It really resonated with me. Well, anything Ginger Scott writes does.


Have you read any of these books? Would they make your list?

  1. I was already sold on Making Faces, but you’ve just promoted the book to the priority read list for me. If only I wasn’t in such a slumpy mood right now.
