Top Ten Tuesday: My All Time Favorite Books
March 3, 2015
Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish in which they select a topic every week, and the rest of us get to make Top Ten lists based on that topic. This week’s topic: My All Time Favorite Books From the Past Three Years. This was another fun topic for me because I liked going back through my Goodreads shelves and rediscovering some of my favorite reads.
My Favorites So Far This Year:
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven: This is one of my favorite books of all time. I love the awareness it brings to mental health issues, and I cannot recommend this book to enough people.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes: My heart strings were tugged all over the place with this one. Not only will it make you cry and laugh and love, it will also get you thinking about some very complex and serious issues.
The Man I Love by Suanne Laqueur: This one also evokes so many strong emotions, and the writing is some of the best I’ve read.
My 2014 Favorites:
Letters of Note: An Eclectic Collection of Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience by Shaun Usher: I just found this to be such a cool and unique collection of letters. There was so much depth and variety to the letters included, and I absolutely adored looking at the copies of the original letters.
Words in the Dust by Trent Reedy: I think Trent is an amazing guy, and I love to promote him whenever I can! Words in the Dust is his debut novel, and it brings so much awareness to so many issues, interweaving many of Reedy’s own experiences while serving in Afghanistan. This book was also my first official book review on this blog so it holds a soft spot in my heart as well!
The Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline: I learned so much about a part of history that I had never even heard of before. I do love historical fiction!
My 2013 Favorites:
Dollface by Renee Rosen: At this point, you all know my love for all writing Renee Rosen. I just love how she interweaves her thorough research with her excellent storytelling. Dollface is the book that introduced me to this wonderful writer!
The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin: I loved learning some of the history behind the infamous Lindbergh family, and it was so not what I expected it to be. I was totally riveted by the story of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, who was such a strong female role model.
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh: I think this is one I need to go back and reread. A unique story with a beautiful main character.
The House Girl by Tara Conklin: I loved this novel that carefully wove past and present stories together to draw the reader in.
