Top Ten Tuesday: Books for Children

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I’ve mentioned this before, but I was not an avid reader when I was a child. I hated being told what I could or could not read so my great rebellion was simply not to read. Scandalous, right? I’ve not read a few of the books, but these are the ones I think would make great reading material for kids.

Goodreads Summary
He knows how to score, on and off the ice

Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she’s going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.

The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross

Publication Date: February 6th, 2018

Goodreads Summary
Growing up in the southern Kingdom of Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her for such a life. While some are born with an innate talent for one of the five passions—art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge—Brienna struggled to find hers until she belatedly chose to study knowledge. However, despite all her preparations, Brienna’s greatest fear comes true—the solstice does not go according to plan and she is left without a patron.

Top Ten Tuesday: The Leaders

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

This week is all about the leaders. It’s about the characters that have that charisma and ability to take charge, in the good and bad moments. Some characters fall into this role naturally, but others find that they are unwittingly thrust into a position they never wanted. Here are the characters that I feel are or would make great leaders.

October Wrap Up 2017

Halloween has come and gone and I can finally get to that jolly festive feeling. I LOVE this time of year. It’s terrifying to think that we’ve already reached the last 2 months of 2017, but there’s always a magic in the air around this time.

I had a good reading month in October. I binge read the Brooklyn Bruiser series by Sarina Bowen and loved it. Honestly, these sports contemporary novels are defining my reading life nowadays. I haven’t been drawn to a fantasy book in months, which sucks cause I have a lot of amazing fantasy books I need to read, but the pull to these sports contemporary novels is just too strong. What I love about Sarina Bowen’s books is that they have that perfect balance between the sports and the romance. You will be swept off your feet by the romances in this series, but there’s also a lot of heart and passion for hockey in them.

Goodreads Summary
In this gritty, contemporary romance, an injured star athlete escapes to a small southern town after an abusive relationship leaves her reeling.

Living with her uncle and twin cousins in their small, football-obsessed town seems like a great escape plan.
