This week’s topic is a Freebie!
Top Ten Books To Read Based On What You Watch:
1. Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton- it’s the gossipy, cutthroat world of dance and it’s fun and wicked and I love it.
2. Fallout (Lois Lane #1) by Gwenda Bond- Veronica Mars wishes she was as OG as Lois! Plus, Gwenda Bond is possibly a superhero herself. I’m still investigating…
3. With Malice by Eileen Cook- one of my favorite 2016 reads, this mystery will have you guessing what really happened until the end (and possibly beyond!).
4. I Am Not A Serial Killer (John Cleaver #1) by Dan Wells- it’s like a teenage Dexter with a supernatural twist, and I love it.
5. The Fixer (The Fixer #1) by Jennifer Lynn Barnes- I admit, I got kind of bored with Scandal because it stopped being about Olivia’s awesome job. But this book is all about a teenage Olivia-type, without the annoying affair with the POTUS… well, at least for now, it’s still the early days of the series and she’s still underage.
6. Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna Dressed in Blood #1) by Kendare Blake- okay, imagine that Dean and Sam were in one body, and instead of having a sexy angel or a sexy demon helping them, they had a sexy, blood thirsty ghost. Also, I just love this cover.
7. What Light by Jay Asher- It might surprise people to know how much I love Hallmark Christmas movies since I love horror, watch the ID channel like it’s a part-time job, and am hooked on My Favorite Murder Podcast, but I am such a sucker for a super cheesy Christmas movie and Hallmark is the holiday magic maker. Asher’s book has added depth and realism, but both are perfect for curling up and enjoying on a snowy day.
8. Croak (Croak #1) by Gina Damico- I loved Dead Like Me and Reaper (both shows only got two seasons, and I’m still in mourning) because I like dark humor mixed with reapers. I’m weird that way, and Damico totally gets me. I love her books, and I’d totally recommend Hellhole or Wax to anyone who likes humor with their murder. What? It can’t just be me.
9. It Wasn’t Always Like This by Joy Preble- this book is more how I would have liked Tuck Everlasting to be, especially since I adore Jonathan Jackson in the movie version and never understood how Alexis Bledel didn’t choose to be with him forever. I know, I have issues.
10. Jackaby (Jackaby #1) by William Rittner- with shades of Sherlock Holmes and the quirkiness of Dr. Who, Jackaby was one of those books that I instantly loved. I have the 2nd two books in the series, and I seriously need to read them asap.
I often think of movies and tv shows when I read, do you?
