Turn Off The TV & Take A Chance On This

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week they post a new topic/top ten list and invite everyone to share their own answers. I'm so obsessed with lists - so it makes perfect sense that I'd love this feature!

Since I love TV, I couldn't limit myself to just one show with ten books that correspond. Plus, that ended up being way too difficult. So, I decided to highlight SIX shows with an adult and young adult book for each! 

Top Ten Books If You Like These TV Shows
1. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: freshman year of college | finding your way | not fitting in
2. Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham: New York | two guys | following your dreams
3. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord: friendship | Southern | real issues
4. Nowhere But Home by Liza Palmer: football | small town | family
5. The Luxe by Anna Godbersen: scandal | drama | society elite
6. No Angel by Penny Vincenzi: generational saga | romance | history
7. New Money by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal: inheritance | angst | drama
8. The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice: outsider to insider | wealth | gossip
9. Heist Society by Ally Carter: hijinks | disguises | around the world
10. The Negotiator by Dee Henderson: thriller | smart leading lady | demons from the past
11. If I Stay by Gayle Forman: life or death | accident | tragic but hopeful
12. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes: ethical medical issue | love story | tears

  2. I love how you have an adult version and a ya version! I got totally stuck on this week's post so I didn't end up doing it, but it's crazy awesome how everyone's posts are all so different and creative! I am feeling inspired now :)

    1. Oh thank you! Since I read so much adult and YA, I thought it would be fun to highlight books from both. I'm glad you liked that aspect! I originally tried to pick one show + ten books and found it impossible haha

  3. NICE! I love Felicity and keep meaning to pick up Fangirl and Someday. I love Nowhere But Home, so now I'm thinking I need to try Friday Night Lights.

  6. Nice! You picked so many of my favorite shows! I picked Downton Abbey and also recommmended The Luxe (it's one of my favorite series). The fact that you recommend Open Road Summer for FNL makes me want to read it all the more now! I also love that you recommended YA and Adult picks! Great list!

    1. Well, these are some of my favorites shows so you have great taste in TV :) Haha! And yes, I really love The Luxe series. Those were some of my first YA reads before I realized what "YA" really was - and I can't even remember how I first discovered them. And yes, Open Road Summer is one of my favorite reads this year. So good!

  7. Awesome! I love Alias! I'm going to look into those books now. I like Felicity, and Friday Night Lights but I'm not a huge fan of them. And Gossip Girl got on my nerves very quick! :)

    Have a great week.

  8. Brilliant! I've never seen The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets on a TTT list before - it's one of my favourite books, ever. Did you read the kind of sequel, The Misinterpretation of Tara Jupp?

    1. Okay, I feel like NO ONE has ever even heard about The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets, so this has already become one of my favorite comments. And I didn't even KNOW there was a sequel so that had solidified this as one of my fave comments because I totally want to know that info. Adding it on Goodreads now!

  15. I love how you gave a YA and adult suggestion for each show! I love Grey's, so will have to check out those suggestions :) And on the flip-side, I really enjoyed the Luxe series, so maybe I should finally watch Downton Abbey!

    1. Oh thanks Christine! You know I love my adult and young adult :) And eeek I looooove Downton Abbey. I thought the very first episode was a little hard to get into, but I was hooked after that.

  16. Oh hey there Gossip Girl, one of my favorites! Actually Gossip Girl and Felicity are the only shows out of all of these that I've seen. I'm lacking! But I've read some of these books, so that's something!
