Top Ten Books I'd Play Hooky With

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is:  Top Ten Books I Would Play Hooky With

To be perfectly honest, if I could I would probably play hooky with any book.  I would much rather stay home and read than go to work.  Unfortunately, this time of year is the busiest at work and it's not easy to call in sick.  Here are a few books that might make it super hard for me to go work.
1.) Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward-As I have said before I have been waiting for 9 books to read Tohr's story.  It will be hard to go to work when I know this will be waiting for me at home.
2.) The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead-I miss the Vampire Academy gang!  There was also kind of a cliffhanger at the end of Bloodlines so I want to see where that leads.
3.) Written with My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon-Oh my goodness, I have only been waiting for this book for 3 years!  It's the one book I told the hubs I could break my book buying ban for and I would definitely want to skip work to stay home and read it.
4.) 11/22/63 by Stephen King-I have a feeling this is going to be an epic book.  I may want to lock myself in my room and not leave until it's done.
5.) Les Miserables by Victor Hugo-I am going to read this in 2012 and I am actually excited to do so.  I started it in high school and never finished it but I remember loving what I did read of it.  It's so long that a whole day to myself with it might be helpful.
6.) A Dangerous Inheritance by Alison Weir-I loved Innocent Traitor and am excited to read this sequel. 

I only have 6 this week, sorry!  It's always hard for me to pull away from any book and go to work so this list could be a lot longer.


  1. Like you, I'd rather be reading than working :) I also missed the VA group and you also have other great books in your list.

  2. 11/22/63 is getting great reviews. I think I will get the audio version, though, because it's also loved and I can listen to part of it at work (double score!).

  3. Fantastic list! Would love for you to stop by and check out my Top Ten. New follower via GFC :)
