Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Things to Eat/Drink While Reading

I think this Top Ten Tuesday topic is perfect for this week, month, and season. I typically don’t eat or drink things because I don’t want greasy fingers on my pages or have the chance of accidentally spilling something on my books. BUT the fall season is the perfect season for me to drink while reading. Here are my top 5 favorite things to drink while reading.

2. Eye of Minds by James Dashner

I loved Dashner’s Maze Runner trilogy and I would love to read some of his other work.

3. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon

The main character is allergic to everything and I’m allergic to basically any animal that has fur so I think I could relate a lot to this book.

Missoula1

4. Missoula by Jon Krakauer

This book takes place not too far from where I live. Even though this book is about a serious topic, I’d still love to read it and get to know more about the situation that went on.

5. Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

Just a light fluffy contemporary I’ve had my eye on for a while.
