Top Ten Tuesday (3)


This week on Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Books that Will Make You Swoon. I have picked some books that have really well written romance in them and the ones I really liked. :)

1. The Fault in Our Stars – John Green *review*

Hazel Grace and Augustus have one of my absolute favorite romances from any book I’ve ever read. It’s so cute and so real. I think something like that could actually happen and I really enjoyed that throughout the book.

2. Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell *review*

I love love love Cath and Levi’s relationship in this book. This couple is adorable. It was so cute that I almost think it couldn’t happen, but I still love it and its one of my favorite books.

3. Minutes Before Sunset (The Timely Death Trilogy #1) – Shannon A. Thompson *review*

I got the opportunity to read this book sent from Shannon Thompson herself and it surprised me how good it was. I love Eric and Jessica together. I love the idea of how their stories come together and it is amazingly written.

4. The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden (The Coincidence #1) – Jessica Sorensen

Okay, I’m excited now. I just looked this up on Goodreads and saw there were three books in this series. Oh my goodness. I need to reread this book anyway because I really enjoyed it, but now I can read the others as well! Oh em gee. Anyway, I love this book. This is the first New Adult book I read and I had no idea what New Adult was at the time. I thought it was a Young Adult book, but then I read it and NOT YA. I love Callie and Kayden though and cannot wait to reread and read the sequels.

5. It’s Not Summer Without You (Summer #2) – Jenny Han *review*

I am really enjoying these books and I love Belly and Conrad and Belly and Jeremiah for different reasons. At the beginning I was team Conrad, but then once I read the second book I was rooting for Jeremiah. Jenny Han did an excellent job of giving both of them an equal chance with Belly, but I hope she ends up with Jeremiah.

6. Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy #1) – Richelle Mead *review*

Lissa and Dimitri are absolutely perfect together and it makes it even better because their love is “forbidden.” It’s the perfect Romeo and Juliet kind of thing…. except with vampires…. :)

7. Envy (The Fury Trilogy #2) – Elizabeth Miles *review*

I love Em and her relationship the love interest. The end of the first book was better with this because you understood where they met and everything, but the second describes how she should have fallen for him before and she shouldn’t have had to have a run-in with the Furies. I really enjoy these books and they will definitely make you swoon.

8. Evolution (Evolution #1) – Kelly Carrero *review*

I absolutely adore the relationship between Jade and Aiden. I love how he is so protective of her and the whole story just makes me so happy.

9. City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) – Cassandra Clare

Clary and Jace are perfect. They are wonderful, but I want to have Jace all to myself, so they aren’t my favorite couple. I love Simon and Izzy, but Alec and Magnus are my favorite couple. They are so cute together and the TMI fandom doesn’t care that they’re gay. It makes them much more likeable because it’s different.

10. The Season – Sarah MacLean

I adore this book and I plan to reread it because I liked it so much. This is one of my favorite Historical Fiction novels because it’s very girly, but I really relate to the main character.

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten.

5 out of 5 stars

Plot:

I love the idea of this book. I love everything about it. It was perfectly and wonderfully written by the amazing John Green. Meeting and shaking hands with John Green is on my bucket list. I don’t know what I would say to him if I met him, but I would be a mess because I would be so excited. This book was (and is) so beautiful. I will re-read this book many many times. I love the idea of the lovesick teens who meet and think of nothing but the each other. I love how they talked about books and I loved the pointless parts in this book. Like with Hazel Grace and her obsession with getting eggs to be more than just a breakfast food. I cannot express how much I love this brilliant book.

Characters: 

The main characters in this book are Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters. I love the both of them separately and together, together much better though. I love Hazel so much because of her sarcasm and her pointless comments, again the egg comments. I adored when they talked about the books because they were both so passionate about them and it just made me smile. I laughed out loud for the first time ever while reading a book, just so perfect. I have to admit, one of my favorite parts from this book was after Augustus finished Hazel’s favorite book and he texted her freaking out asking if that was the actual end of the book. These characters were so well developed and it was just perfect reading about them. I loved this story and I do not understand how anyone could dislike this book in any way.

Who Would I Be?:

I would definitely be Hazel Grace. Who else would I be? I love her. She has the perfect amount of sarcasm and wittiness. I love her inquisitive comments and it was wonderful reading about her. Of course I wouldn’t want to have cancer like she has, but I want her loving personality. John Green, I applaud you and every thing you do. I love you so extremely much.
