Top Ten Tuesday

Today's topic is Top Ten Books I'd Save If Someone Threw a Pipe Bomb in My House (or something along those lines).

1. The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell
I don't know if you guys know this but I won a contest a while back for a copy of Renegade X that has notes from Chelsea Campbell throughout it. It's also signed to me and a ton of other wonderful things. I love it to death, and the knowledge that it's truly one of a kind helps.

2. All of my John Green books
The three I've read are some of my absolute favorites, and whenever I hold them they bring such nostalgic memories with them, especially Looking For Alaska. And the two I haven't read are the only two signed, so.

3. Shiver and Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
Maggie Stiefvater is the only author I've ever met, and it was so awkward but awesome, too. And she signed these books to me, so.

4. The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger
I've yet to finish this one, but it's an old battered copy from the 70's that I just love to look at. It even smells like the 70's (or your grandma's basement, depending on your grandma).

5. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
It's been forever since I've read this, but it's got a major sentimental value for me: it was my first ever ARC.

6. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
I've always loved this book. I've read it countless times and every time I've found a new meaning to it and a new reason to love it and pass it on to my kids one day.

7. The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
Just because I love it so much.

8. Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

9. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

10. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
