Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
So at the start of 2013 I had decided that this was THE YEAR OF READING or something like that. And now I’m up to 56 books and the year is only half over. I’ve read A LOT of really amazing books, and I’m proud to say that I’m even branching out a bit! Picking my top 10 was super easy because there have honestly been a lot of great books, but only a few have made the ‘mind blowing’ cut. So here are my top 10 books that I’ve read this past year. I HIGHLY recommend them ALL!
Anna and the French Kiss — Stephanie Perkins
This book has ALL. THE. FEELS. omg and it was the inspiration for my current novel!
Mind Games — Kiersten White
I know that this book has gotten a lot of negative reviews, but I thought it was amazing. I loved the prose and the flashbacks. I loved the sisters and how fucked up everything was. I can’t wait for the next one!!!
Clockwork Princess — Cassandra Clare
Best read of the year HANDS DOWN. Best end of to a series EVER. I basically sobbed hysterically through the last like. 100 pages. So many emotions. If I think about it too much I STILL tear up.
Golden — Jessi Kirby
My first Jessi Kirby book and I was blown away. The story, the writing. Everything was perfect and beautiful.
Monument 14 — Emmy Laybourne
Amazing end-of-the-world survival book. Great characters and gripping story! So much love for this book, and Max!!! Never have I read such an amusing young child in a book before, oh god.
Dangerous Girls — Abigail Haas
I read this week ago and I STILL can’t wrap my head around the ending. Mind-fucking-blowing.
Fangirl — Rainbow Rowell
Emergency Kanye Dance Party. Need I say more?
Also Known As — Robin Benway
A sassy, witty, HILARIOUS teenage spy?!?! Maggie is my new FAVORITE YA heroine.
Through the Ever Night — Veronica Rossi
Such an amazing follow up to UNDER THE NEVER SKY. I am DYING for the next one now!!!
Smart Girls Get What They Want — Sarah Strohmeyer
This book was SO much fun. I loved the friendships, the humor, the families… just everything.
Have you read any of these? Were they top favs too???
