Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I'm Thankful For

Y'all. It's been a hot minute since I've done a Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly feature from The Broke and the Bookish. I'm celebrated being off work for five days with a glass of wine, my kitten, and some books I'm thankful for.

I have copy of this book from when I was in second grade that I show my second graders every year. There is no cover and there are pages missing, but I keep it to show them how much I love reading. I can still recite some of these poems by heart. 

Before you scoff, there are a lot of reasons I'm thankful for Twilight. It opened me up to a new genre that I hadn't read before, but it also opened me up to a plethora of amazing people. I've made some of the best friends because of this book. 

Always a classic. Always a favorite. 

Also thankful to my mom for buying me all of the BSC books ever. 

I read this to my new class every year. Every year I cry. 

I love Emery Lord's words. Reading about working through your grief and still be strong in your faith resonates with me on a deeply personal level. 

I love this book. That's all. 

I love this book for bringing a strong, but broken male lead into the YA dystopian world. 

This series is perfection to me. 

How could I have a list like this without Harry? 

There it is. I'm sure after I post this I'll have a ton of ideas about what I should have posted and what else I love, but that's what I've got for right now. I'm thankful for books, the freedom to read them, and for anyone who reads this little old blog of mine. Thank you! 

I remembered this just as I was publishing. I love this book. And it's sequel. You'll laugh and cry and then cry some more.
