Guest Post: Top Ten with Heather from Turning Pages

By 8:08 AM ,

Hi guys! I am Heather, one half of the duo that makes up the blog Turning Pages. I am so excited to be doing my very first guest post here on Lovin’ Los Libros!  Thanks for having me Jessica!

 It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to write about, but then I thought that since it is summer time, I would incorporate two of my favorite things into one post. BEACHES and BOOKS!


 So, without further adieu
TOP 10 BOOKS I’D TAKE WITH ME ON A DESERTED ISLAND
 





1.     PRIDE & PREJUDICE – JANE AUSTEN
I love the classics, especially anything written by Jane Austen. But Pride & Prejudice has a special place in my heart. I adore Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth and could spend hours lost in their beautiful dialogue. If you’re going to be stranded on an island, you must bring a classic. At least in my opinion.

2.     CITY OF BONES – CASSANDRA CLARE
OH my Jace! Seriously. When I was first given this book by my bloggin’ partner Christie (back when we first met) I was very hesitant. I thought it would be too “out there” for me. But MAN! I was wrong. I was instantly pulled into the Shadowhunting world and I refuse to leave. I could read this book (and the entire series) over and over again.

3.     JUST LISTEN – SARAH DESSEN
I consider myself Sarah Dessen’s biggest fan. I would seriously LOVE to meet her one day and I strongly believe it is bound to happen since we are both Carolina gals. But really. My passion for reading started with her and her books never disappoint me. Just Listen is one of my favorites and came out around a time when I really need to do just that, listen.

4.     ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS – STEPHANIE PERKINS
It takes place in Paris. I mean….that’s pretty much all you need to know. But then there is this boy, yes – a boy, and you can’t help but fall in love with him. He is the mix of perfection. I also really enjoy Stephanie’s writing style and her quirky sense of style. Her books are fun to read and easy to fall in love with.

5.     TEMPEST – JULIE CROSS
Julie is my writing mentor and I was so lucky to stumble across Tempest when I did. The story line is phenomenal and one that leaves my mind reeling days after I’ve finished reading it. I can’t imagine being without a Julie Cross book. And Jackson. We can’t forget Jackson.


6.     PROM AND PREJUDICE – ELIZABETH EULBERG
A modern take on my most favorite Austen novel in the world. I devoured this book when it first came out. Elizabeth tackles high school in a way that makes me wish I could go back and take charge like the characters in her books. Okay, maybe not the go back part, but they do give me a sense of power.

7.     THE FAULT IN OUR STARS – JOHN GREEN
Do I really need to elaborate on why this book would come with me on a stranded island? I mean…Hazel. Gus.
Okay? Okay.


8.    JUST ONE DAY – GAYLE FORMAN
Another book that takes place in beautiful Paris. I will pretty much be using this book as my guidebook when I go to Paris next summer. No, really. I read this book in just one day and I could easily read it over and over again. It is just that fabulous. Prepare to fall in love.


9.     BEAUTIFUL CREATURES – MARGARET STOHL & KAMI GARCIA
I am a sucker for books that take place in the south, mostly because I myself am a southerner, born and raised. Taking a little piece of home with me on a deserted island is a must. Oh and Ethan Wate is a major plus.
10.  SO MUCH CLOSER – SUSANE COLASANTI
I love all of Susane’s books. She is such a fun-loving author and it shows in her writing. I love all of her books, but this one in particular really stood out to me. I love everything about it and would definitely have to have it with me.



I hope you guys have enjoyed this post! And thanks again to Jessica for allowing me to share with everyone!

Happy reading!
