Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten freebie week. I debated for a while on what to do and finally decided on Top Ten new beginnings, whether it’s a new town, new school, or a chance to do things over.

10. under the never sky big Under the Never Sky – Veronica Rossi. Aria finds herself thrown out of the only home she’s known and has to adapt to living outside of the pods she’s seen as protection her whole life. New beginning: new surroundings, new people.

9. anna big Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins. Anna is sent to boarding school. In France. She knows no one and doesn’t speak the language so she’ll have to learn fast. New beginning: new school, new country, new friends.

8. wrong side of right The Wrong Side of Right – Jenn Marie Thorne. Kate just found out who her father is. And he’s running for U.S. president. It would be hard enough to get to know him and his family under normal circumstances but with the whole country watching, Kate knows one wrong move could ruin everything. New beginning: new family.

7. reboot big Reboot – Amy Tintera. Wren died. For 178 minutes. Then she rebooted and has been trained to be a soldier. Rebooting after so long is supposed to mean she barely has human emotions but a new reboot complicates things. New beginning: new life.

6. red queen Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard. In a world where silver blood means having powers and red blood means serving the silvers, Mare has red blood. And she has a power. New beginning: new power, new surroundings.

5. proof of forever Proof of Forever – Lexa Hillyer. Four friends who drifted apart get a second chance after being transported back in time to when they were fifteen. New beginning: new views on life.

4. fangirl big Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell. Cath has always felt a connection to fictional character Simon Snow and has been a huge part of the fandom for years. Does growing up mean leaving all that behind? New beginning: new school(college), new roommate.

3. throne of glass big Throne of Glass – Sarah J Maas. Celaena is a trained assassin and the crowned prince’s choice for a tournament to determine the king’s champion. New beginning: new surroundings, new ‘job’.

2. girl of fire and thorns big The Girl of Fire and Thorns – Rae Carson. Elissa is supposed to be the chosen one but she’s always felt like a failure at being great. Now she’s to be married to a king who needs her to be the chosen one. Elissa just wants to avoid dying young like so many chosen ones before her. New beginnings: new surroundings/kingdom, new authority.

1. harry potter Harry Potter – JK Rowling. Harry discovers he’s a wizard. New beginnings: new school, new powers, new obsession for me.
