We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since last January Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is ten books with your favorite color on the cover or in the title. Purple is my favorite color, so here is my top ten of purple books. I don’t know if I have ten, but we’ll soon find out!
Not all of these covers are completely purple, but some also have a few elements of purple. I decided that the rules can be bent a bit, haha. After changing the rules a bit, I was able to choose ten books!
1. Beautiful Creatures I actually saw the movie before I started the books. Before reading Beautiful Creatures, I thought the movie was pretty amazing. After reading this book I couldn’t look at the movie the same again. There are a lot of mixed opinions about this series, but I loved it. The authors created an interesting world in a spooky town.
2. Half-Blood Even though LUX is still my favorite series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, this one has a special place in my heart as well. Once again, we got a world full of amazing characters, humor and a bit of romance. This is an action-packed set of books. I still need to get to the spinoff with Seth, but I have all four of them now. Hopefully I can get to them soon.
3. Carry On As a big fan of Fangirl, this book was on top of my list when I heard about it. Cath’s love of these characters made me so curious about Carry On. There are definitely elements of Harry Potter in Carry On, but has its own unique story. I am sad we only have one book with these characters, because I would love more. This cover is amazing and I’m happy I waited to buy it until this edition was published.
4. Living Dead in Dallas It’s been a very long time since I have read these books. Sookie Stackhouse are the books True Blood is based on. My mother was a big fan of the show when it first came out and then I saw there were books. Before watching the show, I read the first eight books. There are quite a few more books that I still need to get to. Like any series, there are many differences with the TV show. In the end I think I like the books better.
5. A Steel Heart Amie Knight is an amazing writer and A Steel Heart was one of my favorite books of 2017. This author really knows how to make you feel things and want the characters to have their own happily ever after. I connected with the main character right away. Miranda loves romance book and edits them for a living. That has to be an amazing job. On top of that, Holden reads romance books. A Steel Heart is the first book I’ve read where the male character reads romance, haha. At this moment I’m reading the next book An Imperfect Heart and all I can say is she did it again.
6. Three Summers This author really took me by surprise with this debut novel. After a tragic even the characters’ lives are turned upside down. Sadie is trying to move forward after that tragic night. When her ex-boyfriend Rowen pops up again, she’s not sure what to do. We read about three summers and the journey these characters take to find their way back to each other. My review will be up this Saturday. Three Summers is amazing and you should really check it out!
7. The Exact Opposite of Okay I honestly think this book is going to stay in my top ten books of 2018. The Exact Opposite of Okay is such a powerful book. Everyone should read this book, because it describes how society works these days. Many girls are looked down on or bullied for the same things guys get away with or even praised for. The most important thing is that the main character learns that she did nothing wrong and is okay just the way she is.
8. Descent This is the second book in The Infernal Guard Trilogy. Isabelle and I loved these books last year. If you want an unique fantasy story and some amazing characters, you really need these books. I couldn’t put them down and read them all right after the other. On top of the amazing books, this author is so sweet. The Infernal Guard trilogy definitely needs more attention than it gets now!
9. Autoboyography This was one of the first books I reviewed on the blog last year and was really impressed. Besides the beautiful cover, this is an amazing story. After reading the sypnosis, I was really afraid that it would be too much about the religion it’s trying to explain. That was not the case at all. While we learned things about the religion, we got a sweet love story as well. It’s sad to think how many people are punished or looked down upon for who they love. Autoboyography is really worth the time it takes to read!
10. Bad For You J. Daniels is becoming one of my favorite authors. Her Alabama summer series is a definite favorite, but this one isn’t far behind. Bad For You has two amazing characters that you love from the start. Stitch is the main character who doesn’t think he deserves anything good. It was nice to see things turn around and him seeing that he does deserve to be happy. He’s paid for his mistakes and is starting over. J. Daniels writes books with romance, humor and amazing book boyfriends.
So that’s it for this week. These were my top ten purple books. What’s your favorite purple book? Are there any I need to read? I would love to hear from you.
