Top Ten Tuesday (11)

August 21, 2012

I am participating in Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Each week, there is a specific topic for a top ten list.

This weeks topic is:
Top Ten Favorite Books You've Read During The Lifespan Of Your Blog

I am excluding books I have re-read.

1. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

This book was phenomenal. I absolutely adored the story and the characters and the world! Certainly one of my favourite books of all time.

2. Insurgent by Veronica Roth

I thought this was a great sequel to Divergent and I thoroughly enjoyed it! So much action and drama, I couldn't put it down!

3. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Lola is an awesome, quirky character, and Cricket is just adorably cute. I loved the romance (even though I am incredibly jealous).

4. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I loved Anna and St. Clair's story too, Stephanie Perkins is an amazing writer and sure knows how to create a brilliant romance story!

5. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

Super creepy, and I loved it! I loved the mystery and suspense in this book. Just chilling!

6. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Books that make me cry are obviously high on my list. I cry so much in movies, but for some reason it's more difficult to do so with books. This book sure did make me cry. And so much more! It was just so humorous, and it was a lovely experience to witness Hazel and Augustus' journey.

7. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

The writing style in Shatter Me drew me in straight away. I am a huge fan of unique writing styles, and on top of that, it was just beautiful and poetic. Furthermore there is plenty of action and an epic villain!

8. Across the Universe by Beth Revis

I went into this expecting a lot more romance than what I found, which turned out to be a pleasant surprise. There is so much more to this story, and in fact the romance was very minimal. I loved the world created, and the mystery kept me hooked. And MY GOD, those twists! Insane!

9. Blood Red Road by Moira Young

Another uniquely written story - although confusing at times, kept me interested! I had been interested in this book in a long time and was so pleased with what I found.

10. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

To finish things off, I have another book with a creepy element. I loved this book so much! An awesome set of characters alongside a gripping story.

I'd love to know what your favourites were!


  1. I plan to read Anna Dressed in Blood this week! Some great picks there. New follower :D

  2. I love The Fault in Our Stars so, so much. I've thinking about reading Across the Universe for a while as well, and now I'll definitely do that (if you're interested)

  3. CINDER was great! :) I also loved DIVERGENT/INSURGENT. I considered putting them on my list! I almost included ANNA and MARA. I can't wait to finally finish reading John Green's backlist so I can read his "best" book. I still need to read SHATTER ME, eep! And the sequel to ACROSS THE UNIVERSE... I'm really looking forward to the next book by Moira Young. Great choices!

  4. I LOVED every book on your list! Great choices!

    My Top Ten

  5. Cinder is popping up on a lot of Top Tens this week. I really need to read The Fault in our Stars. I don't think anyone that's read it hasn't loved it.

  6. Great books. I'm currently reading the Dutch translation of Shatter me and I love it so far. Can't wait till it hits the stores in september. :)

  7. I loved Cinder and The Fault in Our Stars too! I'm looking forward to a good scare from Anna Dressed in Blood in October as well. Thanks for the great list!
