So I decided to start a new thing here, every Thursday, I'll post a Top Five list. Anything from my top five favorite books or movies to my top five favorite ice cream flavors. I want to include personal things about me too, so it's not just a blog full of reviews but I don't feel comfortable making a normal "so today..." blog post. Plus, I like lists :)

Top Five All Time Favorite Books

Timeless LoveTimeless Love by Judith O'Brien

I absolutely adore this book. One of my favorites when I was younger and it still is today! I was always a sucker for history and romance and this luckily has both. I haven't read it in awhile though, I recently finally found my copy... I'm thinking of re-reading it some time soon just for old times sake!

Message in a Bottle  Message in a Bottle by Nicolas Sparks

I've always been a fan of Nicolas Sparks. I love how all his novels have tragic endings. It's always tragic endings that stay with me the longest. I don't know why I love this book so much more than the others, to be honest. But I always find myself craving to read this time and time again.

For Better, For Worse, ForeverFor Better, For Worse, Forever by Lurlene McDaniel

So before I was a fan of Nicolas Sparks, I was a fan of Lurlene McDaniel... for the same reason. Tragic endings! This was one of my absolute favorite ones. A Walk to Remember reminds me of it, a lot. I didn't know this was a squeal at the time I read it, and I recently got my hands on the first book. So imagine my excitement lol.

Finding LauraFinding Laura by Kay Hooper

A friend of mine insisted I borrowed this back in high school. And I'm glad she did! I believe in past lifetimes and again with the history-ish going on in this. It was an intriguing and interesting read. Now if only I could find more past lifetime-ish books :)

Stealing Heaven  Stealing Heaven by Elizabeth Scott

This is a recent addition to my all time top five list. But there's just something about this book that just grabbed me. I find myself itching to read it over and over all the time. I love the sarcasm and the humor in Elizabeth Scott's books.

What are your all time top five books? Have a suggestion for what my next top five list should be? Feel free to let me know what I should list off next :)


  1. I've only read the Kay Hooper and Elizabeth Scott titles but they all sound good!

  2. I haven't read any of those books. I think I've actually only heard of Stealing Heaven. ^^; Timeless Love sounds really interesting though. :3

    My #1 favorite book? Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. It's the perfect book to me. Love it so much!
    Some other books I love: The Hunger Games/Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta, Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman.

  3. I havent read any of the fie books you listed. I have heard of Stealing Heaven and do want to read it one day. Why don't you do a top five romances list.

  4. I really want to read Message In A Bottle! I love Spark' work and the movie that's based on the book :D
