Back on the Top Ten Tuesday Train

When I first started blogging last year, this meme was my absolute favorite (it still is really). For some reason I stopped participating, and even though I am still reading lots of peoples TTT's this past week I really felt like I missed participating. In the coming weeks I'm also going to start posting a little bit more about me and what I'm up to as well. I am pretty busy, and I'm just not turning out book reviews as frequently as I would like to be writing this blog. It really helps me with thinking through things, and I would like to start getting more involved with it, rather than just posting some short reviews when I finish books.

I have never one to be after just getting followers, however I do think it would be more enjoyable if I was making some blog friends, but in order to do that I need to step up my game! So, while this will always be predominantly a BOOK blog, I think I'm going to start adding some more ME stuff in as well.

However, today I'm just going to post the most recent TTT because I am having huge envy for everyone who made such awesome lists!

I'm going to use one of my all time favorite books here:
Summer Sisters

Most of these books are about summer, and if you are no longer a teenager (like me) these books instill that nostalgic feeling of having two carefree months of nothing but possibility. I love that in a book sometimes.


  1. Great books! I've not heard of Firefly Lane - I think I'll have to check it out.

    But I agree that these books you mentioned were fantastic at giving that great summer feeling. :)

  2. Firefly lane is very similar to Summer Sisters (in the sense that its about friendship spanning over a long time, etc), you should definitely check it out before the summer is over!
