Top Ten Tuesday: All Time Favorite Books(from the past three years)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by Jaime at the Broke and the Bookish where you create a list of your top ten favorites of a given category.

I feel like this will be difficult, but maybe I love less books than I think. I guess I'll find out.

1. Surprisingly, the first book that comes to my mind is a contemporary: Don't Touch by Rachel M. Wilson. I went into this book with low expectations, though I was excited by the sound of the summary. But, wow, Don't Touch was a much more beautiful, vibrantly written novel than I had expected. I loved the entire cast of characters(except one), but I fell in love with Caddie most of all. I'm definitely anticipating Wilson's next book.

2. A book that is another debut! Again, this book was unexpected, seeing how I DNFed it my first time around. All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill was an engrossing and fantastic time travel book. The plot itself was wonderfully engaging and surprising, but the romance was also notably swoony.

What February Brought

Whoo, I'm writing this post a little later than I wanted to. Therefore I'm making a late night post! February seemed to be a busy month for me. Obviously, it was exciting too, because I got a gorgeous new blog design and it was my birthday month. I also entered a writing contest, and if I win I'll be able to travel to Washington D.C. I'm crossing my fingers and toes that I'll win. I know I will be really, really depressed if I don't get it, because I loved writing the essay and I loved how the essay turned out so my hopes are incredibly high(which is unusual for me). I'm impatiently waiting for them to pick the winners. Other school stuff got in the way and I watched too many tv shows and I also got sick, resulting in only two books read this month "cries" The good news is that they were two highly epic books.
