What’d ya call this thing again?

wpid-toptentuesday.jpg

Oh, right! It’s Top Ten Tuesday! Silly me; I almost forgot. Actually, this is turning into more of a Top Ten Wednesday thing for me. I’m sorry I’m always late, but I’m just so busy!!!! Rawr!!!! Ahhhh!!!! Anyway, now that I’m done having a stress-freak out, we need to talk business. Actually, I’m gonna’ ramble on and on and on, and you’re gonna’ sit here and pretend to be interested. Sounds fun? Good.

Amy and I want to expand the types of posts we do. For example, we’re currently working on a post that isn’t related to books at all! The horror!!!! I know, guys, but just hang in there for a moment because it isn’t as bad as it looks. Do you trust me? Good. Anyways, it’s just a fun little post dedicated to Spring. Amy and I both wrote poems and took picture, and I also made a few drawings. We’re thinking about these fun posts about once a month. I think we’re gonna’ call them Thoughts On A Whim, and then whatever the topic is will be after it. Because this one is dedicated to Spring, it’s going to be called Thoughts On A Whim… Spring! We also had another idea to let you get to know us better. Disclaimer: The idea you’re about to hear next has absolutely nothing to do with the meme Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. These are entirely separate, and by no means are we trying to take credit for or steal their amazing idea. Ready to hear the idea?

Well… we thought we might do a few posts (Again, also unrelated to books. I’m so sorry; it pains me to do this.) about ourselves in the form of a Top Ten list. Like, Top Ten Things I Like to do other than Reading, or Top Ten Favorite Songs. Stuff along the line of that. And then, you guys can tell us your favorite things and we’ll bond and become one big, happy family! It’ll be just like Barney and Friends! “I love you, you love me…” Hey, why isn’t anyone else singing? Why are you all just standing there? Why are you staring at me like I’m the weird one? Why are you slowly backing away? Is that taser really necessary?  Pshaw, you guys are no fun!

I honestly have no idea what that was… I am so sorry. I hope our blog is a lot cooler than Barney and Friends… and whatever I just did there.

So anyway… please leave a comment below or email us or something and tell us what you think! Ok, so this is already pretty long, so I better get started on the reason I’m writing this post. Or I just ramble and talk about random stuff the whole time? Random stuff you say? That’s what I was thinking, too. Wait, why is that tomato in your hand? I mean, I like to eat a lot too, but that doesn’t mean I just eat tomatoes raw. At least put some dressing on it! Wait, why are you throwing tomatoes at me? I thought we were friends! “I love you, you love me…” Nothing a little Barney can’t fix. Ah, man, not the taser again…

Guessing by your previous, totally rude reaction, I’m guessing you want me to get to the point. Well, I have a few things to say about that… Put the dangerous fruit down, people! I was just kidding! 🙂

Anyway… this week’s topic is…. Top Ten Books You’ll Probably Never Read. This was a hard one for me. A real struggle. But I did it for you guys. You’re welcome. 🙂

1. Eclipse and Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer

EclipsecoverBreaking_Dawn_cover

I mean, I read the first two at age six and I wasn’t allowed to read the rest for fear of ruining my young, delicate six-year-old mind.  Looking back, I don’t really see anything wrong with the Twilight series, but it’s totally cliche and I probably won’t read the rest of the series. I’m probably better off that way. Sorry, you single Twilight fan out there!

3. (The last one counted as two. I’m that sneaky, man. I should be a ninja. Ok, that wasn’t even funny. I’m boring you… I’m gonna’ stop now. Probably should if I fear for my health. Getting tased that many times is not good for my bodily well-being.)

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

It’s not that I don’t want to read this book, it’s just that I probably will never, ever get around to it. Enough said.

4. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

 bookcover_home_before_i_fall

Don’t get me wrong, I love books like this, but I tried read this and I clearly failed since it made this list. By the twentieth page, I could not continue. I mean, I love the Delirium series by this very same author but did not feel the same way about this book.

5. Fifty Shades of Gray

Give me one good reason to read this book? Wait, actually don’t. If you’re going to defend this book, I’m not sure if we can be friends. No Barney for you!

6. The Horrible Henry books by an equally horrible author (Suzy Kline)

9780439447485_xlg

I never would have read these books anyway, but my little brother made me watch the movie… long story. Worst. Movie. Ever. I lost a part of my brain that fateful day, and I will never get it back.

7. Miles to Go by Miley Cyrus

Miles_to_goHowever agreed to publish this “book” must have lost a bet, or been drunk, or something. Either that, or they have a horrible problem. They must have destroyed themselves in the book world. No sympathy.

8. First Step 2 Forever by Justin Bieber

First_Step_2_Forever

The fact that an actual number is in the title should tell you something. If that’s not a big-enough clue, look at the author!!!! See number seven (Notice how I didn’t use a number and actually typed it out; amazing, isn’t it?!?!?!)

9. Being Jordan: My Autobiography by Katie Price

966262_01

I like how it’s an autobiography written by a different person…

10. The Day I Shot Cupid: Hello, My Name is Jennifer Love Hewitt and I’m a Love-aholic.

lovecrazy

Doesn’t this look like a lovely example of classic American literature?! Or more accurately, an example of what is wrong with the world?!?!?! Let’s take a look at the author’s name, shall we? Jennifer Love Hewitt. Doesn’t that just roll of the tongue? Give me a break. And that lovely cover. Wouldn’t you just love to have your young toddler to stumble upon that?

And this has been the worst and hardest thing I have ever done… I’m in a bad mood now. I’m gonna’ go talk to Amy and look up puppies. Bye, guys!

  1. You seriously could not have picked better books! I remember reading Inkheart in middle school and absolutely loving it! Horrible Harry was always a classroom favorite and I’ve read every single one of them. He wasn’t so horrible after all 😉 I also read the Twilight series and have seen all of the movies…tween fun is all I have to say. As an adult now…I would never..ever..not when there is True Blood.

    • Hehe. So… You mean to say you agree? *scratches head* I for one have started Inkheart (I can’t speak for Nikki though), but I have just not had the time to finish it. I have nothing against it. I’ve never read Horrible Harry or Twilight, not planning on it either.

      • I do kind of agree haha. Ink heart was a great book for me in 5th grade..In the school I went to we read books with a “level” (how well you could read basically) and had to get points based on tests you took. I read a LOT and still do, this book just stood out to me as magical and awesome in 5th grade. Horrible Harry was also a great book for a beginning reader in 2nd-5th grade which is when I read the books. They were hilarious and I knew actual kids like Harry. Twilight…well…just don’t…stay far far away. If you want a vampire fix..minus the sparkles that aren’t real….watch True Blood 🙂

  2. Most of these are/would be on my list! I say would be to some because unfortunately I’ve already read them xD Horrible Henry, I totally forgot about those! I remember reading and really disliking them. As for the Twilight series, I’ve read all of them too and remember when it first came and I wasn’t allowed to read Breaking Dawn either

  3. Hahahahahaha!!! I always laugh way too hard at your posts…Dude, people are starting to look at me funny. Anywho, I love the Thoughts on a Whim and the personal posts ideas! I think they would be fun to read(as long as its not too often, I am a book person after all.lol). As to the list I couldn’t have chosen more appropriate books myself except for 1,2 and 3. Okay chill, I’m not one of the ‘Twi-hards'(ha!) about to yell at you but I stand by the fact that the books could have been worse(the films on the other hand…lol). But, INKHEART are you serious?!! Literally just finished the series and am in the process of writing it a stella(sorry, I just used the phrase ‘stella’.) review! How could you?!! haha! Another brilliant post! Katherine. Ps Lordy, I hate Barney sooo much!Ha!
