Top 10 Books You Should Read

Sunday, April 19, 2015

This list may or may not be biased because it is based off of my favorite books.

I can tell how much I love a book by whether or not I buy it because let's face it: books are expensive, (keep in mind that I am a college student) but shout out to all of the wonderful libraries across the world, Thanks to you I have still been able to read some astounding books.

Let the listing begin:

Isla and the Happily Ever Afer
while I was reading outside
1. Anna and the French kiss by Stephanie Perkins
This is going to be cliche but: I could go on and on and on about how much I love this book. Just trust me please when I say it is beyond incredibly amazing. 

2. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins
As you might see, I have a deep love for Stephanie Perkins. A love so deep that I got stuff and signed autograph books. I'm still kicking myself in the pants that I didn't get a picture with her when I met her last summer.

3. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
The only reason this book came in at #3 is because the characters from Anna and the French Kiss appear in it (these first 3 books are companion novels) and since I'm so madly in love with Anna & St. Clair, this book has no choice but to be #3. It is still an excellent book too!

4. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
On a more serious note, this book really impacted the way I looked at suicide. The book broke my heart, but it was still very incredible.

5. Just One Day by Gayle Foreman
As an avid romance reader I can confidently say that this book did not let me down. While the characters ran throughout the world, I was captivated in every new location and situation.

6. The Girl In the Wall by Daphne Benedis-Grab
This book left me on the edge of my seat. It's the only book that has made me react in such an emotional way, so if you like action books with drama and romance then this is the book for you!

7. Mothership by Martin Leicht & Isla Neal
Let's see... aliens, romance, and teen pregnancy? I can't think of a more intriguing plot combination. This book has a sequel and it is equally as awesome as the first book. 

8. Over You by Emma McLaughlin
As a teenage girl I have experienced a lot of heartbreak, and I never knew the quickest way to get over my heartbreaker. The concept of this book captivated me from the beginning because the main character runs her own business that helps people with heartbreak. If someone had this as an actual business I would be their client in a heartbeat. 

9. Airhead by Meg Cabot
I loved this book because of it's brain transplants. That is all. 

Book #3

*There are some books that everyone loves that I haven't read, like Paper Towns by John Green for instance, and that is why they aren't on this list.

First Blog Post

Sunday, April 12, 2015

Hello blogging universe!

My name is Ciarra, but enough about me already, we can save that for later.

The first thing I want to talk about is giving credit where credit is due! So I have to thank The Dutch Lady Designs for my beautiful layout. You can purchase her work here.

Secondly, as you may have noticed, this is my very first blog post, on my very first blog ever. So please bear with me as I navigate my new blog life, and I hope we can all have fun throughout my new journey! I don't have a ton of things planned yet, except for one large event that will be taking place this summer: my study abroad trip to Sydney, Australia. I have exactly 58 days until I leave, so I can't wait to share all of that with you guys (I'm smiling just thinking about it).

Well I'm going to keep this post short and sweet, until next time,

Made With Love By The Dutch Lady Designs
