Top 2 Tuesday-- Books.

This week's Top 2 topic is books!  At first, I was excited because I LOVE books and read all the time.  But, holy cow-- I have to pick my favorite two??  Impossible!  So, to preserve my sanity, I've narrowed it down a bit to just the Top 2 books I've read in the last 12 months (out of I don't know how many, it was still difficult). 

Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon

The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

Both of these books were amazing, and my family can tell you that I did not stop talking about either one for a long time.  I love books that don't remind me of anything I've read before, and books like that don't come along very often.  But both of these definitely fit that bill.  They were so unique and enthralling that I could hardly put them down to go to sleep.  


  1. The Shadow of the Wind looks really interesting.

    Stopping by from Top Two Tuesday :)

  2. Thanks for linking up! Ill have to check those out!

  3. I've hear that Time Traveler's Wife was hard to get into. I have a copy of it (well, I will when our stuff gets here) so I may attempt to read it!

  4. Thanks for the recommendations! I'm trying to read 100 books this year and I've already read the Time Traveler's Wife :)

  5. Hi! I keep meaning to see the Time Traveler's Wife...movie...Have you seen it?!

  6. Yep-- I saw the movie, but I didn't think it was as good as the book. But then again, the books are (almost) always better in my opinion. And, some of my friends who hadn't read the book were really confused.
