7) Mad about the boy by Maggie Alderson
I first read this in high school and totally fell in love with it. I haven’t read this is so long.

8) Boy meet girl by Meg Cabot
This was the first Meg Cabot book I ever read and I only started reading it because the story is told my emails, IMs, phone conversations and not much actually story telling. Yet it is really well done.

9) Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling
Just because I haven’t read these in what seems so long. Plus I saw them in the book store the other day with new covers.

10) The Black Jewels Trilogy
I have reread them may times, but I haven’t for a little while so I’m in the mood to read them again.

{Meme} Top Ten Books That Were Hard For Me To Read

This week top 10 Tuesday is a very interesting topic indeed. It can be taken in so many different way. Therefore I am going to list 10 books and the reason of each one. They maybe different, but they were still all ‘hard’ for me one way or another.

1) Fifty Shades Darker by EL James
This took me like forever to finish. It just didn’t keep me interested enough to keep reading it. I always found something else instead.

2) Deviant by Callie Hart
This was the very first dark romance book that I read. It was totally left of field for me, yet strangely enough this genre has grown on me. I have read a few dark romances now. But this one will always be my eye opener to me.

3) Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
This may be a strange choice for some people, but when I saw this I was scared to read it. I loved Beautiful Disaster and was worried that it would be ruined by Travis’s side of the story. Boy I couldn’t be wrong. This turned out to be a five star read for me and added to much more depth to the first book. Combined they are epic goodness.

4) Beautiful Bastard by Christina Lauren
Where to start. This is a fan-fiction released in stages on the internet by two author friends. That alone made to unsure if I should read it, plus some of the reviews were terrible. So I read it, in one sitting. Man it was soooooooo good. So ya, I loved it and have read and own the whole series to date.

5) The Black Jewels series by Anne Bishop
This may come as a surprise because I absolutely love this series. However the first time I read it I was so confused and found it hard to follow in some parts. Yet now I try not to pick them up because I know that nothing else in the real world will matter til I have finished them. Who cares if I’ve already read them a dozen times, I don’t!

6) Of Mice and Men by
I know it’s a classic, but still. Nope I just couldn’t get into it.

7) L4yer Cake by J. J. Connolly
At the time of reading this it was totally left of field for me. I don’t read many crime novels, so it was a bit of a shock. It still don’t know why I read, maybe cause there was movie based on the book. That is the only reason I can think of. But I couldn’t get over the swearing. Every second word seemed to be ‘fuck’. It doesn’t bother me now, but before it did.

8) Casino Royale by Ian Fleming
No James Bond is not a hard book to read, in fact it was pretty easy really. It were was the mind set in getting in the mood to start reading these book. I love the movies so much, that I was afraid that the book would ruin it for me. And has it? Nope not at all. Well at least for a first one anyways.
