 Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read But Me 

  1. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov - I know most people consider this book a classic, but I still won't read it. Ever 
  2. Twilight - Stephenie Meyer - I can't get past Bella being whiny in the first movie and I just cannot make myself go through that again in the book version. And I like my vampires manly, without sparkles.
  3. The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger - no valid excuse here...
  4. Anything by Stephen King - I tried to read Salem's Lot but I couldn't finish it. I felt that nothing happened in that book. Don't think I'll try again with his books.
  5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - no excuse, just haven't gotten around reading these books
  6. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead - they are on my TBR list, I promise. 
  7. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - Let's just say that me and the classic books aren't good friends. I tried this book when I was a teen. Maybe I should try it again.
  8. Chronicles of Narnia by C.S.Lewis - I've only read the first two books in the series. I liked them, but not enough to continue. Probably would've read them had I started the series before reading Lord of the Rings.
  9. Hush, Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick - I see these books everywhere. I will try them in the near future.
  10. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser today is from The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks:

With that, she sighed. “Shouldn’t you be with your friends, staring at yourselves in the mirror?”

What's your teaser this week?


  1. Oh I love this book! It is so sad though, and I had to hug my dad extra hard when I next saw him!

    Did you like the movie?

  2. I absolutely loved the movie! Saw it twice, cried twice. And I did the same thing with my Dad. I think he actually thought I lost my mind for a second LOL

    Thanks for your comment, Eli!

  3. I haven't read the book but I did see the movie and cried like a baby. He writes such sad stories. Here's mine:
    Have a splendid week!

  4. Hey Shari! Thanks for visiting my blog!
    Indeed, his books are so sad. I only read A Walk to Remember and I remember I almost cried at that book. I didn't because I saw the movie first and I was somewhat prepared for what was in the book. Still a good read though.

  5. This is the 75th ann. for Gone w/ the Wind. I have read that one, but we do have some books in common on our lists.

  6. Hi Stephanie! Thanks for visiting! I've tried reading Gone With the Wind, I just couldn't get into it. Like I said, me and the classic books don't mix very well *oops*

  7. Thanks for stopping by, I have that book but haven't had a chance to read it. Halo series, it's on and off for me but this came out so I just had to check to see if it was better than the first.

  8. Hey Boriquaz! I saw the first book a while ago at the bookshop and flipped through it a little bit, but it wasn't very appealing.
