TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads.
This week we’re having a mini book Olympics, giving “medals” to our favorite books in any genre. Choosing my favorite book would be a difficult feat— like choosing my favorite ride at Disneyland (The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh or Pirates of the Caribbean), or my favorite chocolate (See’s or Ghiradelli) or my favorite Beatle (George, definitely George). It’s practically impossible!
I’ve decided to award medals to my favorite books read this summer (not counting rereads, which I do often). You know, it’s actually a little sad, but I’ve only completed a few books since June. What? I know! I can explain: My whole family, meaning my husband (who is a teacher) and both of my sweet daughters, are on summer vacation and we are all home together. All the time. And we do spend time reading both individually and together (currently the girls and I are reading Matilda together) , but we also play games and go on outings and at night when I’d normally be reading, my hubs and I stay up late and watch old movies and Cheers since he doesn’t have to get up early for work the next day. Summer is good for my family life and very bad for my TBR list.
So anyway, here are the contenders:
Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti
Waiting For You by Susane Colasanti
Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta
The Selection by Kiera Cass
City Of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg
And here are the medals!
The silver goes to You Against Me by Jenny Downham. This book was a wonderful in every way. I wasn’t expecting to love it the way I did. It was that good.
