It’s that time of the week again! So for this week’s TTT post are the top ten books on my TBR list.

1. Every Day (Every Day, #1) by David Levithan
I’ve been meaning to read this book but I figured that I should finish reading my series books first so I’d enjoy reading this. Omg, I was so eager to get a copy of this book because I’ve heard so many good things about it. Plus, I like its concept.

2. Insurgent (Divergent, #2) by Veronica Roth
This is the second book of the series and I am so excited on reading it and getting to know what happens next to Tris and Four’s journey. I absolutely loved Divergent and I hope this books turns out just as great.

3. Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1) by Tahereh Mafi
I am so, so, so excited to read this book. I’ve read a lot of reviews about it saying how awesome the book is. Plus, I love the cover. Teehe.

4. My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares
As soon as I saw the title on goodreads, I was already intrigued. And after reading the synopsis, I figured I should give it a try. The concept is great and I hope it doesn’t let me down.

5. Facade (Games, #2) by Nyrae Dawn
After reading the first book, I had a hangover. I was so inlove with Colt. I was just hooked from the first sentence until the last! And this second book, I am really really excited to know Adrian’s story!!

6. Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick
It’s been a year since I read the first book and it was just until recently that I was able to get a copy of this one. I am still thinking if I should re-read the first one since it has been a long time ago. But I still remember the way I got hooked while reading Hush, Hush. I will surely love this second book, nevertheless.

7. The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay
This book was recommended by a friend. She told me how awesome and beautifully written the novel was and I swear, the look on her face when she was trying not to spoil me was priceless. Haha. I’ve had an ebook for a long time and actually started reading the first few chapters. But there’s really something inside me that says to wait for the book before reading it. And I did! And now that I have a physical copy, I cannot wait to finish reading it!!!

8. Beastly by Alex Flinn
I loved the concept ever since I read the synopsis. And I didn’t have the chance to get a copy until recently. During the crazy NBS sale. Finally, I will be able to read it soon. It’s been on my to-read list on goodreads for a long time already.

9. The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
I know, I know. I’ve bought the book a month ago. But I don’t know.. I haven’t picked it up yet. I think I’m still bracing myself for another Sarah Dessen book.

10. The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden (The Coincidence, #1) by Jessica Sorensen
This was recommended by one of my bosses in the office. I love how she loves reading just as much as I do. And we usually sit in her room, talking about so many books she and I have read and all the books we love in common. I’m sure I’m going to love this!

What do you think of my TBR list guys? And have you posted your TTT for today already? I’m going to check blogs later, I’d love to read your list!

Top Ten Tuesday #3

For this weeks TTT, I’ll have only eight on my list for the top ten books I’d love to see as a movie. Hah, just because most of it are already movies. So here goes my list!

1. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

17322949

Just because I recently finished it and loved it! I really do wish it has a sequel too! Cheesus, I really want to know what happens next but then again.. I love the bittersweet ending it left.

2. The Selection by Kiera Cass

10507293

Wouldn’t it be lovely to watch all the girls from The Selection wear their gowns and dresses? I’d loved it. And I’d also love to see America wearing that silk blue gown she’s wearing on the cover.

3. The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks

15925

Though I’ve read this a long time ago, I can still clearly remember the events in the book. And I so want to see what I visualized come true! Also, this is one of the books by Nicholas Sparks that I love, I like to think that he put extra events in this book. Not just full of those romance-y type.

4. Looking for Alaska by John Green

99561

I loved this book (you guys already know this by now)! It’s perfect for teenagers and the story just amazes me. Surely it’ll be a film perfect for high school students mostly.

5. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

11870085

Yeah, I know they’re already making the movie? But still, I just can’t wait to see them in the big screen! I mean, the story is just so perfect I can’t even say the right words. I love John Green for writing so many great books!

6. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

4327066

I know it already has a movie, but c’mon guys! I mean, the book is just so great that the movie producers and whoever should have given the book justice! The movie was seriously disappointing. And I’d love it if another movie comes up with just the perfect story as the book itself.

7. Divergent by Veronica Roth

13335037

I’d love if the soon-to-be movie pushes through! It’s really an amazing book and it just made me swoon over the characters, especially Four!

8. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

6339664

I remember when I first read the book. I loved it, I loved Patch and Nora’s relationship. I love how confused I got of thinking who wanted to kill Nora and was surprised during the ending. I’d love it if this becomes a movie, it’ll be a perfect movie. Cheesus.

So there goes my TTT for this week. How about you? Have you posted yours already? Link `em up! I’d love to read your list. :)

Top Ten Tuesday #2

There are two choices of what to post for today’s TTT. But since I have no idea how to pair a Contemporary book with a Classic, I’d go for what books I think would be best required to students or should be available in the library, at least. So here goes:

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

It’s a really great book that will make readers realize how important life is. There are people struggling to fight for their lives, so why do suicide? And also, it’s a great book about how to be strong when everything else feels like falling apart.

2. Looking for Alaska by John Green

Another John Green book that I loved! This is another book of John Green that made a really good point about life and friends. There are also so much to be learned from this book!

3. A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

Nicholas Sparks has been my favourite during my grade school years. I am so in love with his books. I think this book should be required since there are so many things to be learned from it. Although it somewhat focuses on romance, there are still parts where we learn so much from.

4. By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept by Paulo Coelho

This is the first Paulo Coelho book I ever read. Since I wasn’t really into these kinds of novels, I thought it’ll bore me but as soon as I started reading it, I was surprised that I’m loving the story. The words Paulo used aren’t really “simple words”, so this book must be required to be read by high school students. It really is a good book! One where there are so many lessons about life.

5. The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

I’ve read this book this year. It’s a just a short read and I’m sure readers or beginners would love the story. There aren’t even any boring parts! It’s a story about life and how we should all treasure and love our life while we still have it.

6. Plagues & Federation: The Diary of Kitty Barnes by Vashti Farrer

I’ve read this book 8 years ago. I have been planning to re-read it but I can’t seem to find the book. But this was a book my favourite teacher from high school asked us to read for our book report. There’s a Bubonic that was killing large numbers of people.  The protagonist is Kitty Barnes who has so many issues in life. It’s just.. so great.

7. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

Well, the Harry Potter series, I think, will keep every student going and will find themselves falling in love with reading. I mean, who wouldn’t fall in love with the Harry Potter series?!

How about you guys? Have you posted your Top Ten list? Link them up here too! I’d love to read your list!

For my first ever Top Ten post: Things That Make My Life as a Blogger and Reader Easier

For this top ten, I will list five things that makes my life as a blogger easier and another five for my life as a reader.

I have started this book blog just a few months back, so I still consider myself a newbie. I’m still familiarizing with a lot of things in the book blogging world. So far, I’ve met a lot of pretty amazing people who loves books just as much as I do. Anyway, in the past months, I realized that being a book blogger is hard. There are times when I don’t have reviews to write since I haven’t finished reading a book yet, which makes the blog look like it’s abandoned, so I have to come up with things to post. Plus, I also have other things to attend to outside the book blogging world, good thing there are a lot of resources in and out the internet that I can use.

My life as a blogger:

  1. Goodreads – Goodreads has been helping me list books I want to read and books that I have read already for a few years now. It has been a big help so I wouldn’t have to list all those books one by one. It has also been where I find new books to read!
  2. WordPress – Of course, this blog wouldn’t fit anywhere else but wordpress. It makes writing posts so easy with its user-friendly features.
  3. Twitter – Twitter has been a big help in getting to know book bloggers around the world! And also in linking my blog posts so that others would come and visit my blog. It’s been a big help since using it is just as simple as 123.
  4. Google Drive – Google Drive has been a place where I post my drafts especially when I have a free time in the office. A few sites are blocked, so I use Google Drive for my draft posts.
  5. Feedly – I have just recently joined Feedly and so far loved how organized it it unlike other feed readers. I love how simple it is and how easy it is to view every post of the blogs I follow.

My life as a reader:

  1. The Library – Libraries has been one of the greatest places to read books. Especially when I am in school, that’s the only peaceful place. And I loved staying there for hours, during break times or while waiting for my parents to fetch me.
  2. Bookshops – Bookshops will always give me the feels. I love shopping for books (especially on sales! Yay for sales!). When I am inside a bookshop, I always feel like a kid in a huge bookstore. Yep, with all those “Oohs” and “Wows”.
  3. Fullybooked – I just had to make a separate bullet for Fullybooked. It has been where I buy books for the past years; where I get most of the books from my shelf. And Lucy has also been a big help with my love for books, she’s always just a tweet away!
  4. Moleskines – My diary-like notebooks where I write all the pretty, lovely, heartbreaking and inspiring quotes I find from all the books I read.
  5. Sticky notes – I always buy arrow-shaped sticky notes. I use it in the pages of my books where there is a convo which I loved, so I wouldn’t have to look it up everytime!

How about you guys? Have you posted your Top Ten list already? If so, link them up here, too! I’d love to read your TTT! Not a book blogger? Comment what you think about this post!
