Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week they come up with a topic and invite whoever wants to add their own list to their own blog.
This one, friends, is gonna be hard. Not because I’m still partying over a National Championship win by my Crimson Tide boys (Roll Tide!) but because wow, do I have any favorite writers that AREN’T still writing? Also, would it be wrong to list J.K. Rowling for #s 1-5?
As part of my week-long birthday celebration, aptly named “Birthdaython” (check out my personal blog, 30 Before 30 for more info) by yours truly, I’m making up my very own special Top Ten Tuesday list: the Top Ten Books I hope someone gives me for my birthday. Feel free to pass this along to others (or send copies my way if you are so inclined!).
J.K. Rowling – Who DOESN’T want her to write more?!
C.S. Lewis– I know he’s dead… but I could use some more Narnia in my life.
Jesse Andrews – Although new to the scene, Me, Earl and the Dying Girl was great. I want more Jesse Andrews!
Rosemary Clement-Moore – I’m sure she’s still writing, but write more damnit! <whispers> I love you!
Stephanie Perkins – Although I STILL haven’t read Lola and she’s coming out with a new book this year, I want another book from her.
J.K. Rowling – Perhaps I can convince you to write a book of short stories?
Tina Fey – If Tina wrote a YA book I would like… kiss her feet or something. Wouldn’t that be the best? IT WOULD BE LIKE MEAN GIRLS!!! but in a book.
Suzanne Collins – More Peeta, please.
Meg Cabot – But only if it stars Michael Moscovitz
J.K. Rowling – What if I gave you a Quick-Quotes Quill? Would you write something then?
Wow… that was major hard! Except for J.K. Rowling. However, if I were her and sitting on her millions, I probably wouldn’t write anymore either.
And now for the top ten books I want for my birthday! (I will try to keep these as realistic as possible. I know books like Fever don’t come out anytime soon)
Lola and the Boy Next Door – Wouldn’t this just be great with a big pink bow on it?
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight – Out in time for my birthday!
Perigee Moon – I don’t know if this is out yet, but I accept late birthday presents as well.
Shatter Me – Since the library STILL doesn’t have this, I will break down and buy it
Starcrossed – I want to own this. Seriously.
The Hunger Games Trilogy – Again. Ownage is needed.
Clockwork Angel – I’ve gotta start reading this series.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – This looks creepily awesome!
Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares – Really want to read this
Daughter of Smoke and Bone – I’ve heard awesome things about this, and I do love me some awesome books!
Happy (early) Birthday to meeeee!!!!
