Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Of My Favorite Books I’ve Read This Year
I’ve had a really really good reading year. I’ve really liked WAY more things than NOT liked or did not finish because I wasn’t into it. But when I was making this list I was like, even though I LIKED and even REALLY liked stuff, there wasn’t a lot that garnered my highest rating. I mean, I’m happy that I had generally positive feelings towards a good chunk of what I’ve read but DAMMIT I WANT SOME NEW FAVORITES.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard: Okay so I got this at BEA and it was one of my MOST anticipated (cough for 2016 I KNOW..I HAVE NO CONTROL) and I read it as soon as I got home from BEA…well actually on the train on the way home. OH MY GOD IT IS SO FREAKING GOOD. If you love epic fantasy, THIS MUST BE ON YOUR TBR. I typically don’t want to reread a book right after I read it but I just keep wanting to reread this.
Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta: OMG THIS TRILOGY. Incredible. INCREDIBLE. MY NEW FAVORITES. I have never cared about characters as much as I care about these ones. (My review of the Lumatere Chronicles)
Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen: I’m only read Just Listen, Lock & Key, Someone Like You and now this one (although I’m reading This Lullaby right now) but Sarah Dessen just keeps impressing me and I just want to devour her backlist.This one was just EVERYTHING I love in contemporary YA! (My review of Saint Anything)
The Boy in the Black Suit by Jason Reynolds: This one I feel has gone under the radar so far this year and it makes me so sad because it’s so excellent. It’s definitely a more quiet and character-driven novel but I just loved it so much. (My review of The Boy in the Black Suit)
