Top Ten Tuesday over The Book Wars.
As usual, Top Ten Tuesday brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish.

So the girls and I were tired of doing cover themed top tens and we took a slightly different route today. Go check us out to see our different reading piles.

My top ten (or rather 5) is at The Book Wars, as usual. It’s actually only ten this week.

This week’s top ten is at The Book Wars. Go forth and find it and Celine Kiernan’s wonderful review!

I love YA and all children’s lit. I think it’s full of excitement and offers a lot of possibility absent in adult literature. But there are some tropes in there that just ANNOY the heck out of me. I’ve written in depth about some of them and this will serve as a reminder for those those of you who missed those posts. Ahem. So without further ado, stuff that makes me turn green:
There. That should be entertaining reading. I hope. If you still want more Top Ten Tuesday-ness, head on over to The Book Wars and see what the girls dislike in their novels.

Today I’m going to cheat a bit as I, together with my friends, did the meme over at The Book Wars. You should totally go and check it out.
So I’m writing my thesis. It’s a lot of work and we’ll take some other post to discuss it in further detail. I have reviewing obligations which means I have stupidly accepted books for review that I don’t have time to read but must read because I have principles and I’m also volunteering, doing some editing work, co-chairing an organizing committee for a Grad conference, contributing to two blogs and breathing. I love doing all of these things. They are fun and keep me busy and being busy rocks. For me anyway. But my reading time is suffering and even when I have time to read, I don’t have the desire to do so. Know what I mean? I just want to stare at the ceiling or at a pretty Korean actor because Kdramas are like crack. ANYWAY, here’s my Top Ten Tuesday for this week.

I really, really want to finish this series and I have the last two books already in my possession. I just have to be in the right mood with the right amount of time to read them. We’ll see.
I know for sure that I’m going to read this dystopian this month simply because I’m reviewing it for The Book Wars!
I reallly want to read this but I don’t want to spend money on the hardcover and the softcover seems like it won’t be out for a while. So if I find this at a thrift store or somewhere, I shall get it and read it. I’m not going to bother going to the library for it cuz the holds are ridiculous and I won’t have time to finish it before it’d due. I really want to read it though.
I got my copy I think last month, yeah, last month. Now I just have to make the time to read!
I love Sarah Beth Durst’s novels so I was pretty stoked to see that this one is out already. I’ll probably borrow it from the library!
Oh, I think this one is going to happen soon. I’ve been casting covetous looks in its direction for a while now. I actually have the book. I just need to read it soon.
I’ve been meaning to read this one for yonks. I just may make it happen this fall. If I can stop myself from requesting review books. -_-
It’s a pretty slim novel. I should be able to get it done in no time at all.
I got this in January. I should make an effort to read it now. ^^

The books I read in school weren’t necessary ones I’d pick on my own. They didn’t usually deal with topics I wanted to read about because I like happy things and happy endings but the novels chosen by the education board seemed to particularly bleak and depressing for the most part. However, those works of literature were, admittedly, in a class of their own both by the standard of the storytelling and the stories they told. The novels I have chosen all have a bit more substance to them and though they are all children’s novels, I do believe they have important messages interwoven within the tale that could help a child with similar issues.
