TGIF (1)

 TGIF at GReads is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads and it re-caps her posts during the week and asks a bookish question.

 This weeks question is:

 Book Olympics: In the spirit of the Olympics, which books would you give the gold, silver, and bronze medals to? It can be from any genre, new or old.

This is a fun question for my first participation for TGIF, and a tough one, too. There are so many I could put up!  There’s no possible way to do only three for all the books that I’ve read, so I chose three from three genres 🙂

Dystopian:

Gold

Silver

Bronze

Contemporary:

Gold

Silver

Bronze

Fantasy:

Gold

Silver

Bronze

It’s not easy being Jinx.

Jean Honeychurch hates her boring name (not Jean Marie, or Jeanette, just . . . Jean). What’s worse? Her all-too-appropriate nickname, Jinx. Misfortune seems to follow her everywhere she goes even to New York City, where Jinx has moved to get away from the huge mess she caused in her small hometown. Her aunt and uncle welcome her to their Manhattan town house, but her beautiful cousin Tory isn’t so thrilled. . . .

In fact, Tory is hiding a dangerous secret one that could put them all in danger. Soon Jinx realizes it isn’t just bad luck she’s been running from . . . and that the curse she has lived under since the day she was born may be the only thing that can save her life.

Tory’s secret wasn’t what I was expecting it to be, and neither was the book really, but not in a bad way.  This story was a quick, enjoyable read; it would make a good book to sit and read in a day. Continue reading
