ttt: favorite books in my blog's lifespan

This week's Top Ten Tuesday on the Broke and the Bookish is top ten favorite books in my blog's lifespan. I've only been posting book reviews since January, so my choices are a bit limited, but here are my faves.

Top Ten Favorite Books in My Blog's Lifespan

* In order of their appearance on the blog . . .

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Of course.

2. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster. A funny, inventive book for all ages.

3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Magical and interesting.

4. The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O'Farrell. Sad but beautiful.

5. The Séance by John Harwood. An intriguing, mysterious start (I didn't care for the end so much)

6. Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. An incredibly interesting guy makes for a great book.

7. The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Dark and absorbing.

8. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling. Funny and charming, perfect audio book.

9. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Clever and silly.

10. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. A fun, crazy thriller.


  1. I read The Hunger Games and The Night Circus too and loved them both. I’ll have to look into some of the others that you mentioned, especially Gone Girl which I've seen only rave reviews for.

    1. Definitely read Gone Girl! It seems to have a really broad appeal and is great for a fun, exciting read. If I may be so bold to say, it seems to be the book of the summer!

  2. The Night Circus was so beautiful! The audio is even more mesmerizing. It's read by Jim Dale, who read the HP books, and he is great. Erin will be at the Decatur Book Festival here in Atlanta in a couple of weeks, and I CAN'T WAIT! Look for a signed copy give away in upcoming months!

    My Top Ten

    1. How exciting!!! Erin seems like a really cool person (I watched her Goodreads interview a couple weeks ago) and I can't wait to see what she writes in the future. I'll definitely have to look out for that signed copy!

  3. THE NIGHT CIRCUS is on my list as well. So good! I still need to read GONE GIRL. THE HUNGER GAMES is always a great choice! :)

    1. I'd definitely recommend Gone Girl! And it seems to be loved amongst a lot of different demographics, so I've got a good feeling you'll enjoy it :)

  4. I realllly want to read 'The Night Circus'- it's on my shelf ready to go! I also have a copy of 'The Phantom Tollbooth' from the library that I need to get around to- ONE DAY!
