A Book To Read On Valentines Day (and Why)

Hi fellow book lovers! "My Bookish Blog Hop" group on facebook is celebrating Valentines Day by doing a 'My Bookish Valentine' blog hop!  Click here to join our group







Between my college classes and running around to get my kids a little something (as well as my husband), I completely forgot to make sure this post went live on Valentines. Thats ok though, because I'm sure I'm not the only one who was too busy on Valentines Day to do much reading. -> I plan on catching up this weekend! :)
I don’t really have a Valentines Day book. But… I do have a short list of requirements…
Has to be sweet
Has to pull at the heart strings
Has to have some sort of romantic element

Suggestions: Anne of Green Gables, Jane Eyre, Little Women, Pride and Prejudice… and dare I say it Stephenie Meyer's ‘Host’.



I also have Authors Jo Linsdell and Skye Hegyes here today to share their lists!


Jo Linsdell www.JoLinsdell.com

Susan Hatler writes great romance books. Her series have a nice mix of characters too so whatever your current relationship status you’ll probably find a character you can connect with in one of her books.

I don’t generally read a lot of lovey-dovey books on Valentine’s Day, but one I think I’ll be reading to my kids this year is Love Monster by Rachel Bright about a monster finding someone to love him. It just looks too adorable not to read.






So what about you? Do you have a favorite book to read on Valentines Day? Or perhaps you are still looking for that perfect Valentines book? What are YOUR requirements- Please do tell ;)

A Book That Other People Love But You Haven't Read Yet

Hi fellow book lovers! Valentines day is coming up and "My Bookish Blog Hop" group on facebook is celebrating by doing a 'My Bookish Valentine' blog hop and you are all welcome to join!  Click here to join. 



Today for My Bookish Valentine Blog Hop I am sharing with you a guilty secret... GASP SHHHH!

Today I am sharing with you a few books that other people love but I haven't read yet:

Lets see...
  • I'd really like to read the Maze Runner books
  • Game of Thrones
  • Fifty shades of... (though the Harry Potter rendition I heard at comic con had me laughing so hard I doubt I could read them)

Hmm... I think those are the major ones. There are plenty of sci fi classics I'd love to find; Asimov, Heinlein among others. I've been reading mostly fan fiction in spurts between my electrical engineering classwork. I graduate in May though, hopefully I'll find more time to read then!

Do you have a particular book you would recommend that I read first? Leave your suggestion in the comments!

I also have Jo Linsdell and Skye Hegyes here with me today to share their lists:


Jo Linsdell www.JoLinsdell.com

There are so many books I could list here. Anything by V.E. Schwab and/or Maggie Stiefvater. I see so many book bloggers talking about books by these authors and I’ve yet to read anything by either of them. Another one I always see people getting excited over is The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I’ve been meaning to get round to reading those for a while now.


Skye Hegyes - www.skyehegyes.com

Dear gods, this is a long list. There’s a lot of books that many people seem to love that I haven’t gotten around to reading yet. I haven’t read anything by Brandon Sanderson yet, although I would love to. I also hear a lot of good things about Sarah J. Mass’ books, but have yet to read any myself. One of the books I’d like to pick up this year that I have heard good things about is Cinder by Marissa Meyer.


Do you have any books in your TBR pile (To Be Read) that you are embarrassed to say you haven't opened yet? Do tell!
Meanwhile, be sure to stop by tomorrow at Casia Schreyer's blog:
