|Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish|
1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - What can I say about this book? What can anyone say about this book? It was really just that good.
2. Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler - If you've been paying attention to my blog at all since it's creation, you'll know I can't shut up about Jackie Morse Kessler. Her Riders of the Apocalypse series is SO IMPORTANT and everyone really should read them.
3. A Confusion of Princes by Garth Nix - I've been reading books by Garth Nix since I was a kid so when I realized he was coming out with a new book, I'm pretty sure I squealed and snagged it from the library as soon as I could. It was a glorious moment, I tell you. Absolutely glorious.
4. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver - Ugh. Ugh, ugh, ugh. I just love this book so much. The contemporary with the hint of supernatural is so wonderful and terribly sad that I just can't stop the love.
5. When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle - Another book where I just can't describe the love. I absolutely adore books that explore different perspectives of historical or great literary events. I especially love that Rebecca Serle set the whole thing in the present. Absolutely brilliant.
6. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater - I honestly can't get enough of Maggie Stiefvater's writing style and this book is no exception. Strong plot, strong prose, strong characters - there's not much else I could ask for, is there? [My Review]
7. Welcome, Caller, This Is Chloe by Shelley Coriell - This book drew me in from every angle and truly did not disappoint. Chloe is such a wonderful protagonist that when Shelley Coriell announced on Twitter that she would be posting deleted scenes on her blog, I stalked for days.
8. Wither by Lauren DeStefano - Lauren DeStefano really knows how to write. Really, really. This, combined with the plot of Wither makes for a really amazing book. [My Review]
9. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter - Greek mythology has always been a lot of fun for me and I really enjoyed Aimee Carter's take on it all. I really hope this blend of contemporary and myth is becoming a thing, because I could totally go for that.
10. The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly - If I love the blend of contemporary and Greek mythology, I ADORE the marriage of contemporary and fairytale. The way this book manages to take everything we know about fairytale land and somehow makes it all totally relevant to everyday life is oh so very wonderful. Not to mention I love books set in during WWII.
