Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish, where bloggers come up with their TTT Lists on different questions.
I’ve read quite a few books in 2013, (a ton more than 10) so this was a real hard list to make! I’ve been completely honest with my reviews and so will choose the best reads based on different things like; it made me laugh/smile/relate, etc. Onwards!
1. Fall of Night by Rachel Caine
This book was such a good read! I read it so fast, because anyone who knows me, knows I love Rachel’s Morganville Series and am in such anticipation for the Morganville Series to come to life as a web-series soon!
2. This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
I could probably sum this book up in one line; a perfect YA Romance with sparks of excitement and adventure, a story world I begged to stay in.
3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Okay, so I was a little late jumping on the John Green wagon; but I can honestly say that this book was heart wrenchingly beautiful and I adored the entire thing. Now, that was the biggest five star–six stars if I could–book.
4. The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau
Yay, yay, yay, I love dystopian books! I seriously should read more, but this was one of the first ones I read in 2013 and I had it from Netgalley…just writing this makes me want to read it again!
5. Dare You To by Katie McGarry
Right, technically I haven’t finished this yet (what? I’m taking my time on this one! haha) but I just know it’s going to be up there with my top-five books. I had never read one of Katie’s books before and this one just keeps blowing me away. Love.
6. Gemini Rising by Eleanor Wood
One of my most recent reads this year, Gemini Rising was like a breath of fresh air. It had all my favourite genres of mystery, thrills and was just magical…and I got to Q&A with Eleanor, so it was just like the best day when I finished this.
7. The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
Again, I love dystopian! This was the very first dystopian book I ever reviewed on my blog, and it was kindly gifted by Allison & Busby, and they just have the best taste in books. Kimberly really wrote a winner, here.
8. Elijah’s Mermaid by Essie Fox
Victorian…London…a mystical storyline…isn’t that just enticing? This was such a brilliant read, and I just ate it up. It was unlike anything I had read before, which was so strange, but amazing at the same time. I quickly picked up Essie’s other book shortly after!
9. The Camp by Karice Bolton
One of my favourite YA reads ever. I got to Q&A with Karice and host a day on her blog tour, so getting to do all this and reading such an incredible book like The Camp, was just a massive bonus. I’ve also read the first in her Witch Avenue Series, which is just as awesome!
10. Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick
It was totally by accident that Finale was last on my list; no pun intended. Nora and Patch’s journey comes to an end in the last in Becca’s series, and it just still calls me to read it again. I should probably mention that Hush, Hush is my favourite book of all time…and some people beg to differ, but I just think it had that spark for me and I adored it!
I hope you loved my TTT list, and please do post your links below and tell me what you think of my list and I’ll stop by your posts, too! I also follow back on GFC & bloglovin!
