Spring Fever: Top Ten Books I'd Play Hooky With

Twilight (Twilight, #1)
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

To me, if I play hooky, I want to be transported somewhere else.These are books I know would take me out of the everyday and refresh me. They are like a vacation from my reality.
  1. Twilight: I don't care about the haters out there. This story is romantic and thrilling, it takes you somewhere totally new and of its own. Don't over analyze, this is a vacation.
  2. A Great and Terrible Beauty: These girls go to a magical world they can manipulate. Powerful take you away stuff.
  3. The Fault In Our Stars: If you are ever feeling bad take a walk in Hazel's shoes. You'll feel like you're living your best life today.
  4. Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes: Traveling on a journey led by letters. It's a lot of fun.
  5. The Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy: If this isn't the most fun thing in the universe X 42. 
  6. Necklace of Kisses: Weetzie Bat all grown up and in need of a break. Who can't relate?
  7. Stargirl:  Different in the best ways. If you don't know this girl you should. 
  8. Ella Mnnow Pea: Fun with words and the political worship of "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog". How much fun would it be to live in a world where words are worshiped, before everyone goes crazy at least.
  9. Ditched: This prom night is a deliciously fun story.
  10. Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging: These diaries are the most fun and funniest ever! And they have fun American/British glossaries.


  1. I just got The Fault in Our Stars from the library! I can't wait to read it; I've heard nothing but good about it. And Stargirl! I haven't read that book in such a long time. Great list!

  6. I loved Twilight back in '05 when it was first published before it got all hyped up. The whole Gemma Doyle series by Libba Bray is excellent! I also love how you picked The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! That's one of my favourite books, I've read it about a dozen times and I'm listening to the audio version read by Stephen Fry. He does a great job narrating :)
    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday Post :)

  9. The Fault in Our Stars was beautiful and full of life despite the dramatic topic: Loved it :D

    I had to smile at this: "Don't over analyze, this is a vacation" because I agree. Even though I was not taken by the writing, I enjoyed the story :D
