Top Ten Tuesday (8)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten Books I'd Save if My House Was About to be Abducted by (Mean) Aliens (Who Want My House/Bookshelf)
1.  The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling - I can count this as one book, right? Right??? And if not, then I'll begrudgingly choose book 4. 

2.  Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver - Love, love, love this book. Plus, it's autographed by Lauren and personalized to me. So, naturally, I wouldn't leave this baby behind. 

3.  Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor - Why? Because it's freaking awesome. That's why.

4.  Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue by Hugh Howey - Action, adventure, aliens, and it's autographed. How could I not save it?
5.  The Host by Stephenie Meyer - I may mock Twilight, but The Host is actually a pretty good and fascinating story. I'm hoping SM will write another Host book!

6.  A Million Suns by Beth Revis - Autographed and personalized, plus it's amazing. And it's set on a SPACESHIP, which is beyond cool. 

7.  The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen - It's a comfort read, and I could also never leave Wes behind to be abducted by aliens. He's just too swoonworthy. *swoons*

8.  The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater - Too awesome of a book to let it be abducted by aliens. 
9.  The Mediator series by Meg Cabot - Tough heroine + hot Spanish guy + ghosts. It's a winning combination. I adore these books!

10.  My Kindle - Yes, that's probably cheating, but whatever. At least it's small and easy to transport! 

So, what books would you save?



  1. Totally agree with The Scorpio Races. Love that book.

    I think I would have to save the ones that are autographed too. I mean, the other books I could eventually buy again...but an autographed book is irreplaceable!

  2. Lots of great selections there. I too would save my e-reader.

  3. Aliens who want your library--a travesty! Get out your ray gun and defend yourself and your books!

    Some great choices to hide from those green meanies. HP, Before I Fall, A Million Suns (autographed? yay!)--love!

  4. I loved The Host so much! I'm not a big sci-fi person usually, but I think she tells a really good story:) And she's writing not just one more Host book, but 2:) I adored Daughter of Smoke and Bone and The Scorpio Races as well, so both of those would be on my "must save" list too!

  5. Great idea, I'd save the kindle too. I just bought The Scorpio Races so I can't wait to get started on it.

  6. That's a great list. Thanks for stopping by my blog too. :)

  7. I included Harry Potter as one book, although if I was forced, I'd go for book 3! I agree with what you said about The Host, it's definitely a good read!

    My Top Ten

  8. I just finished reading Scorpio Races just minutes ago and I agree it is too awesome of a book for an abduction. Love it!

  9. Yay The Host! Me too! I adore that book.

    So how do you feel about there possibly being a Host 2 and 3?

  10. Love this list! Also, how have I not read The Mediator series yet? LOVE Meg Cabot. I'm bumping these up on my TBR list. :)

  11. Oh, taking your Kindle is a smart choice. I think I'd have to save my Nook for sure. The rest? How could I ever choose?

  12. I adore The Host! And the Mediator series is an absolute favorite from my younger years!

  13. Yes, I do think it's fair to choose an entire series! It could work if you had a boxset. Congrats on your signed copies! Oh, and I also want another Host book!
