Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer
The same could be said for all of the Mara Dyer and Noah Shaw books, but I hold a special place in my heart for Unbecoming. It’s the first book I ever finished and then opened back up to chapter 1 immediately.
How to Love
I will read anything Katie Cotugno writes. My favorite favorite favorite contemporary author. All of her books should be on this list, but How to Love is my favorite.
Throne of Glass
The series that started me reading fantasy. Again, all of Sarah J. Maas’ books could be on here.
Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell
I saw so much of myself in Cath and her experiences. A rare YA set in college, and one I’d like to see much more of.
What I Thought Was True
Gwen and Cass, one of my favorite couples. Beautiful writing and a swoony romance.
The Royal We
I’ve both read and listened to this one several times, and I adore it each time.
Harry Potter Series
I can’t read one of these without reading them all in a row. A few years ago I discovered it on audiobook and I’ve listened to them all every year since.
The Sea of Tranquility
When this first came out, it was only available as an e-book. I loved it so much that I bought a Kindle just to reread it over and over again.
Anna and the French Kiss
I avoided reading this book for years because I hated the original cover and the title. I finally caved, and I’ve read it so many times that my copy is falling apart.
I’ll Meet You There
Another one where the spine is cracked from repeated readings. Complicated, emotional, beautiful writing.
