January 20, 2015

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is FREEBIE, which means anything goes. And where did I decide to go? Friendship, one of my favorite topics.

However, before I go any further, I must thank my friend Jasmine for the post idea. Thanks, Jasmine!

1. Holes by Louis Sachar — You know what lifts a curse that’s affected two families for several generations? Friendship.

2. Big Mouth & Ugly Girl by Joyce Carol Oates — Matt gets accused of being a school terrorist, and Ursula is the only one who knows deep in her heart he didn’t do it. And, lo, a friendship is born.

3. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein — “It’s like being in love, discovering your best friend.”

    I’ve only read two of the books on your list: Holes and Anne of Green Gables. Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorite books growing up.

    Great topic for this week! Anne’s friendships were really sweet. I’ve been meaning to read some books from Joyce Carol Oates, her novels sound really interesting…
