Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This weeks Top Ten topic is "Top Ten Books You Would Classify As ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOKS from the past 3 years (you can extend it to 5 if you need to)." I'm going to extend it. I'm listing my ten favorite books and series of the last five years. Now, I haven't read every series, so I'm sure there are some out there that could eventually end up as ALL TIME FAVORITES. I also didn't include series that I haven't finished. There are some that I've read the first book or the first two books but haven't finished yet (like the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Mass and Daughter of Smoke and Bone series by Laini Taylor - they could definitely be on this list...oh, heck...I'll make them honorable mentions). I did include three series that are incomplete, with only two of three books released. They are favorites of mine and I'm eagerly awaiting their conclusions. I thought about ten books or series that I recommend to people most. These are the ones I always start with. These have stuck with me the most. There are more, but this list is only ten spaces long. These are really not in any particular order.
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Mystic City series by Theo Lawrence
I loved the first two books and I am waiting VERY impatiently for book 3. I don't know when it's actual release date is, but I'm going to devour it when it's out.
The Selection series by Kiera Cass
The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
The Chemical Garden series by Lauren DeStefano
The Brokenhearted series by Amelia Kahaney
Starbound series by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi
The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons
I just finished reading this and I was truly blown away. It's a stand alone dystopian that made a lasting impression.
None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio
Ok, this one isn't out yet (4/7/15), but when it is, PLEASE read it. It's brilliantly written with such care, it's emotionally stirring and it will make you a better person through understanding.
(because it would be wrong not to include these on this list)
Oh! I know I've left out SO MANY awesome books!
I know I need to READ so many more awesome books!
What are your favorites of the last few years?
