Top Ten Tuesday: Spring Fever

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists. I am too so that is why I am participating this week.

 Spring Fever: Top Ten Books I'd Play Hooky With

I'll admit that I've taken a day off from work, went to work late, or left a few a hours early because there was a book I wanted to read, a chapter I had to finish or a story that I couldn't stop thinking about and I wanted to know what happened next. So this week's topic was fun for me to compile. Here are a collection of books that I would love to play hooky with.

1. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Why is this one still just hanging out on my shelf? If I played hooky, 
it would be the first one I pick up.

2. Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles

3. The Edumacation of Jay Baker by Jay Clark
I hear this one is really funny and lately I've needed some laughs in my life.

4. The One That I Want by Jennifer Echols
Because I love Jennifer's books. That is all.

5. Queen of Kentucky by Alecia Whitaker
Our latest book club pick.

6. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

7. Thumped by Megan McCafferty 
When I finally have a copy of this book in my hands, it's on!! I may actually take the day off to read this one.

8. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist - by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
I've wanted to reread this one for a long time but instead I just keep watching the movie over and over again.

9.  Cupcake by Rachel Cohn
I want to finish this series just so I can start it all over again.

10. The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler
I would spend the day reading the book and watching the movie. 
But not necessarily in that order.


  1. Great list! I can't wait to read Thumped either, and I love Sarah Dessen. I actually didn't like LOLA that much, or at least not as much as ANNA...but I loved Anna. Just my preference, though. Anyway...if Cupcake is as good as you say it is, I may have to add it to my to-read list.
    Thanks for the suggestions!

    here's my list: http://julie999.blogspot.com/2012/03/top-ten-tuesday-books-to-play-hooky.html

  2. Yes to Stephanie Perkins! I have read Lola, so "Isla and the Happily Ever After" made my list, even though it's not out til 2013.
    Looking forward to Thumped as well!

  3. Oh yes, I have Lola on my shelf too! But I did LOVE Anna and Etienne! :)

  4. I think I'll have to read Nick and Norah! I loved the movie but never even considered reading the book. Thanks :)

  5. Great list! Would love for you to stop by to check out my Top Ten.


  6. OMG! You really should start on your no 1 & 2. They're like the best book ever=D Great list, btw!

    Drop by my Top 10?

  7. Lola is the cutest! I'll probably read Thumped too when I can get a hold of it.

  8. Lola and the Boy Next Door is also one I need to get my act together and read! Looks adorable! Great list.

  9. I LOVE Nick & Norah! I think I devoured it in one day. You must read Lola asap! :) It's so good. I think I loved it even more than Anna.
