    Oh man, this week’s theme has been a good kick in the butt to read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight! I have it on my shelf, but have yet to pick it up. Mind you, my eyes keep darting to it whenever I’m in my room, haha.

    Also, the maps was such a cute and creative idea! I loved it!

  2. Lauren @ Lose Time Reading

    I love love love Anna 😀 I struggled with not adding that one 🙁 I actually just finished the audio book this weekend(I know… Im so far off the Anna bandwagon, not sure why it took me so long!!) and am obsessed 😀 Great choices! I haven’t read a lot of them but of course most are on my tbr haha. Thanks for stopping by my ten as well 😀

  3. Ashley @ Wholly Books

    Oh my word! I love your maps! They are too cute! You also have some great books on there! Meant to Be, Of Poseidon, The Rules of Disappearing, Just One Day are all great! I have Heist Society and really want to read it but just haven’t gotten to it yet! Soon though!

    Oh I love the maps! Way to go, overachiever! 😉 Looking at this makes me want to read Meant to Be and the Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. It only makes sense that I read books set in London, England since I myself plan on traveling there in the fall! Eek!

  5. Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl

    Brittany, I love your maps! That is SUCH a cute idea, and so unique! I swear, you always have the cutest posts. I’m jealous. I’m about to read the second Heist Society book. I hear it’s even better than the first!

    I hope you’ve read Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard. Have you? If not, you MUST. It takes place in Belize, and is my favorite book ever.

      I haven’t!!! Isn’t that sad? I think I have it for Kindle but that was before I really used my Kindle…. Sounds like I need to get it soon! 🙂

    I love the way you put them up on a map. I also included Just One Day, Meant to Be, and Statistical Probability. Those are some of my favorite light rereads too.

      I don’t know! I actually saw you a few times but then we both got swept away in the crowds 🙁

    hmmm… i dunno then. i didn’t really like This is What Happy Looks Like or Statistical– is it kinda like that?? Fluffy and cute, but not a lot of depth?? i need the heavy drama if reading contemporary– like Pushing the Limits or some Gayle Forman!!

    1. Brittany Post author

      Yeah, you might not like it then! It’s definitely more funny/fluffy — I actually think Statistical was more serious than MTB so if you weren’t a fan of Statistical, I’d say Meant to Be probably isn’t the book for you!

  8. Judith

    I LOVE the graphics! The maps look so cool! And whoa, Heist Society is a busy travel book haha. I really want to check it out 🙂

  9. bookrockbetty

    Oh my goodness! I love the way you threw the books on the map!!! Such a clever idea!! 🙂 I seriously can’t get enough of the Meant To Be cover— do you think I’d like that one???

    1. Brittany Post author

      Thanks! I LOVE that cover.
      Hmmm, I think it depends on what kind of contemps you enjoy! It felt like I was watching a romantic comedy — Funny, a little slapstick at times, and just plain cute in my opinion! It was definitely more of an Anna and the French Kiss feel than a serious/dramatic contemporary!

    1. Brittany Post author

      Thanks so much 🙂 I’ve only read the first one so far but it was pretty great! So much fun!
