Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books of 2015 (and 2014)

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we can all share lists.

Top Ten Tuesday

…otherwise known as the only 10 books I have read so far this year.

Therefore I am going to cheat and include some books from 2014. Because I can. And I loved some of the books I read in 2014 as well so they deserve equal recognition.

So these are some of the books that made me squee and flail about

Fangirling

1. I’ll Give You the Sun-Jandy Nelson

It’s the most artsy book I’ve ever read and yes, some of the metaphors were bordering on ridiculous but the character development and the storylines were what sold me.

2. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe-Benjamin Alire Saenz

Oh how I loved this book. And Ari. And Dante. And those beautifully, lovely, effortlessly poignant quotes.

3. Vicious– V.E. Schwab

Anti-heroes! Best friends turned into enemies! Superpowers! Seriously, how can anyone not like this book? Aside from the amazing premise, Vicious touches on deeper subjects as well. This book raises so many questions about what it means to be a hero.

4. Fangirl-Rainbow Rowell

really liked this book. Which baffled me. But it’s very cute and fun to read.

5. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before-Jenny Han

Though I got annoyed with the protagonist, I liked everything else. Cutesy novel. Wonderful family dynamic. And pain-in-the-butt sisters. Oh, and Peter Kavinsky.

to all the boys

6. The Raven Boys-Maggie Stiefvater

GANSEY. RONAN. NOAH. ADAM.

Yes, I just listed the Raven boys out. Yes, that’s all you need to know about this book. Now go read it.

7. The Winner’s Curse-Marie Rutkoski

Not the typical forbidden love trope. It’s so much more than that: politics, family, loyalty. And I adored Rutkoski’s writing style.

8. The Mark of Athena-Rick Riordan

I re-read this so maybe it doesn’t count but who cares? It’s Rick Riordan. It’s Percy. I love the sass.

9. My Sister’s Keeper-Jodi Picoult

Gosh, I cried my eyes out. And my whole family looked at me strangely while I wailed “Why? Why?”

10. Fairest-Marissa Meyer

Okay, maybe I’m really stretching here since I’m still reading it but so far, I am enraptured. Levana is so…compelling and you feel so sorry for her and then BAM, you get hit with the realization that this is Levana. The one who made life a living hell for EVERYONE.

What books made you feel like you were going to spontaneously combust and cry this year?

      I loved The Winner’s Curse so much, ugh. Arin and Kestrel better have a lot of swoony moments in the third book.

  1. I’ve read 8 of these books (!!) AND I LOVE THEM ALL TOO. ZOMG YOU HAVE FANTASTIC TASTE IN LITERATURE. I think Mark of Athena has been my favourite so far too. xD I loved House of Hades, but I loved MoA moooore. And I only have Blood of Olympus to go and I’m crying. And I’ll Give You the Sun is just like POETRY. Gah. How is it even legal to write that well?! Plus Vicious was so perfect and vicious and delightful.
