Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Match Together for Certain Reading Moods

Top Ten Tuesdays (TTT) is a weekly event now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's TTT is: Books You'd Mash Together - my spin on it: books I'd mash together for a certain reading moods.
I had a bit of hard time coming up with books that I'd mash  together - I just love most stories as they are and well, honestly, I probably was just over-thinking it. So I decided to do a little spin and these are all books I'd mash together for a certain reading mood. 

For the suspenseful and thrilling mood surrounding a group of girl friends...

Both of these books focus on groups of women going through big life changes. In a Dark, Dark Wood focuses on a group of women that go to a cabin for a hen do (a bachelorette party) and things ensue. The Perfect Mother focuses on a group of first-time moms when a baby goes missing.

For the beach town summer reads...
These books are both set on the east coast in beach towns. The Summer Wives follows a small beach town and the people in it. The Summer I Met Jack follows Alicia Darr and Jack Kennedy's relationship but it also has the same element of being on a beach town and not only following Alicia and Jack, but some people around them as well.

For the worth-it emotional reads...
Both of these books deal with grief in different ways, they can be emotional and hard to read at times, but they were totally worth it. In The Husband Hour, the main character has lost her husband and is trying to find her way through life while dealing with her grief. In Come Away With Me, the main character and her husband lost their baby and are left with grieving all they lost. They decide to travel to try to escape and cope.

For the romantic comedy reads...
Both of these books have great ships and fun stories. In The Hating Game there's an office setting with a hate-to-love ship - which is one of my favorite kinds. In The Kiss Quotient, we have a woman wanting to practice kissing so she hires a male escort.

For the fantastical ocean reads...
These books pair together because of their fantasy elements and the ocean setting. To Kill a Kingdom is a little mermaid retelling that centers on a siren and a prince. Daughter of the Pirate King centers on a female captain of a BA ship.


  1. I sometimes get The Hating game and The Kiss Quotient mixed up, so maybe a mash up would be a good thing! Must be the similar coloring of the covers or something. Or just me lol. And Kingdom/ Pirate Queen looks like it would be lots of fun.

  2. Love what you've done with the list this week. Great recommendations for a reading mood! :-) My TTT

  3. I like your idea this week! I haven't read The Hating Game, but it looks like it kinda matches The Kiss Quotient... even the covers look a little similar!

  4. Ooh nice picks! Mostly all new to me ones! Except for that last one! Definitely a good mashup there!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. This really was a hard one! Books are so unique on their own. It's hard to imagine them together.
    Here is our TTT:

  6. The mashup of To Kill a Kingdom and Daughter of the Pirate King sounds like it could be really good.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  7. I haven't read To Kill A Kingdom, but knowing what it's about and having read DOTPK, yup, I can definitely see those two working together!
