"Thea had no way of knowing if Amber even knew who Nova was. But the girl was a med intern and at the very least, she'd have access to medical records, so Thea made sure to hold her gaze, thinking, Help me, help me, please. She didn't care if it was pitiful or desperate or weak. She wanted an ally outside her cell, and something told her Amber might be it." p 106

TITLE: Immunity
AUTHOR: Erin Bowman

RELEASE DATE: July 2, 2019

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Childhood Favorites

*in no particular order

10. THE RANDOM HOUSE BOOK OF FAIRY TALES by Amy Ehrlich--I can't count the times I checked this one out of the school library during elementary school!
9. THE STINKY CHEESE MAN AND OTHER FAIRLY STUPID TALES by Jon Scieszka--what fairy tale lover didn't love this parody of the classic tales?
8. THE RAINBOW FISH by Marcus Pfister--there was something so magical about this book and it was definitely the shiny scales! Lol. It had a good moral to it too!

7. HOLES by Louis Sachar--another book that was read to me in middle school by a teacher that I ended up really enjoying! I loved the mystery element to it!
6. ACROSS THE WIDE AND LONESOME PRAIRIE by Kristiana Gregory--I loved the Dear America  Diaries as a kid! This was the first one I read and one of my favorites!
5. MEET MOLLY by Valerie Tripp--like many a girl growing up, I got myself an American Girl doll and that was Molly! So naturally I had to read her books!

4. SCOOBY DOO WHERE ARE YOU? (Comics) by Multiple Writers--Scooby Doo was my first comic book series...and pretty much only one! Lol! Though I don't think my subscription went to #55 as pictured.
3. FALLING UP by Shel Silverstein--like many a kid, I adored his poems! This was the first one I got and is my favorite of all!
2. THE TRUE STORY OF THE 3 LITTLE PIGS by Jon Scieszka--yet another adorable and hilarious story! I loved this one!!

1. HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE by J.K. Rowling--and of course Harry played a large role in my younger years! Granted it was preteen vs childhood, but still the same! Lol.


  1. I never read these. I did read a series on fairies that I loved!
    Genesis @ Whispering Chapters

  2. Love the sound of this week's teaser, Jessica:)

  3. Funnily enough, that's the book that always comes to mind when I think of the Dear America series -- and it was probably my favorite. As is natural, I think, for any hardcore Oregon Trail computer game player.

  4. I loved fairy tales and the American Girl series, too!

    My TTT.

  5. Loved Holes and the Rainbow Fish! I'd totally forgotten about that book

  6. I love your list! I was a big fan of the American Girl series too. Molly was my favorite as well, and I also had the doll! The True Story of the Three Little Pigs was so much fun! I enjoy sharing that with my kids now. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

  7. I was lucky to have younger cousins, who enjoyed Scieszka's work, because that is how I got to read his delightful books. I read Holes as an adult, but still thought it was brilliant. Many of the other books I "read" with my daughter. She was obsessed with the American Girls.

  8. I wanted an American Girl doll SO badly as a kid but never did get one. I did adore Samantha though!

  9. Great list! I had Shel Silverstein's A Light in the Attic on my list but all of his books were my favorites :) And omg, the American Girl series-- what a throwback!

    My TTT post

  10. Immunity- I need to read that ASAP! I loved Contagion. And I love the Scooby comics!

  11. American Girl was another favorite. Kind of forgot about those, but I had quite a few of them. The Rainbow Fish is a classic too. I'm too old for HP to be from my childhood, but it's a favorite now. Thanks for stopping by!

  12. I also loved Holes, Meet Molly, Dear America, Falling Up, and the rainbow fish book!!! Here is my post https://paigesofbook.blogspot.com/2019/07/top-ten-tuesday-childhood-faves.html

  13. What a teaser! What does she need help with? Who is Nova to her?

  14. Oh I loved Meet Molly as a kid! And of course Harry Potter too!
