Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together.
Have I even read that many books with numbers in the title? I had to go digging and find out! Surprisingly, I ended up with about 30 to choose from which is good because I could actually pick favourites and didn’t need to include all the Fifty Shades books!
If you’ve read and loved any of these let me know in the comments below. Don’t forget to link your own TTT as well so I can check it out!
1. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Taylor Jenkins Reid
So happy to have one I gave 5 stars to heading up my list! This book lived up to the hype for me. It was different, intriguing, with questionable morals and characters you both love and hate.
For me it had it all and it felt so real at the time.
2. A Thousand Pieces of You, Claudia Gray
Each book in this series has a number so i’m winning at this self-imposed game.
I loved this series which I feel is so underrated. It follows our heroine through parallel universes as she chases her fathers murderer and it’s so fun and interesting.
3. Two Weeks Notice, Whitney G.
Fun, fun, fun and a little like the premise of the movie by the same name (though not an adaption of this book).
I love office romances and this one was no exception! One of my favourite books by Whitney G.
4. One Night with a Billionaire, Jessica Clare
I love this whole series and the spin off! They are all billionaire love stories but all with different elements and plots.
This one is particularly cute and features a curvy, quirky, kinda shy, make up artist that I could totally relate to.
In fact, I feel like reading it again now!
5. Twenties Girl, Sophie Kinsella
Sophie Kinsella is one of my auto-buy authors. Her books always make me smile and are so fun!
This one was probably the “strangest” with our heroine communicating with a ghost driving the main part of the plot.
I still enjoyed it though and it gave me a lot of laughs! I could see it as a movie for sure.
6. A Perfect Ten, Linda Kage
I love this series and this book.
It’s called the forbidden men and is one of those series that follows different couples in a group of friends. In this case, all the relationships are “forbidden” in some sense. A Perfect Ten is the brothers best friend trope, always a winner.
Sign me up for repeat reads please.
7. Ten Tiny Breath, K.A. Tucker
I honestly read this book and series so long ago I can’t really remember too much about it.
It followed your typical story of broken girl, beaten down by the world and made tough because of her experiences, learns to love.
These are very hit and miss for me so me giving it 5 stars means I really loved it!
8. Million Dollar Marriage, Katy Evans
I read this one really recently and was so pleasantly surprised!
I thought the first one was only ok but Million Dollar Marriage was right up my alley with the reality TV trope I love so much.
9. One Day in December, Josie Silver
I did really enjoy this book though it didn’t 100% live up to the hype for me.
It seems like people go crazy for this type of format where people are meant to be but keep just missing the timing over years of their lives. They always make me a little frustrated even when they are otherwise good.
10. Thirteen Reasons Why, Jay Asher
Thirteen Reasons Why was a 3 star read for me. There were elements I really liked and things I thought could have been done better. Overall i’m glad I read it, especially before the series came out.
I thought the book dealt with the issues better.
One of the main differences I found was in the book Hannah seems to go along with putting herself in a situation where she may be raped, as at this point, all she wants is to feel something, even if that is a horrible feeling. For me this was really powerful in showing how lost she was. In the show it comes across as just another bad thing to happen to her and for me, shows less depth to her depression making it seem a bit one dimensional that rape = suicide when really, Hannah was already very mentally ill at this point.
