Top 10 "older books" you don't want people to forget about.I will list some of my favorite books. The ones that could be forgotten with all these amazing new releases every time.
1. Markus Zusak - The book thief. Like always, I have to point this one out. This story is touching. I've read it four times now and every time, I get blown away by his wonderful, flowing writing style.
2. Juliet Marillier - The seven waters series. Luckily, there is coming a new book! Part 6 and it will tell the story of Maeve. I can't wait. These books are.. magical. I always get a warm feeling when I read these books. Everything feels right and her words feel so natural. All her other books are great as well.
3. A.C Gaughen - Scarlet. I expected more publicity for this book, but I'm disappointed. I thought it was great! A Robin Hood retelling, how awesome is that? Scarlet is a kick ass girl and the side characters are well-done. Add a fast writing style and that's all you need, right?
4. Adam Gidwitz - A tale dark and Grimm. Part two is coming up, called In a glass Grimmly. This was an original twist to a not-so-popular fairytale. I loved it.
5. Anna Sheehan - A long, long sleep. I was so touched by this story. It was emotional and the main character really grew onto me.
6. Carrie Ryan - The forest of hands and teeth, The dead-tossed waves and The dark and hollow places. My first zombie books and they blew me away.
7. Heather Dixon - Entwined. Dark twist on The twelve dancing princess.
8. Janet Lee Carey - Dragonswood. Magical, sweet and some great characters all in one.
9. Jodi Lynn Anderson - Tiger Lily. Definitely in my top 3 favorite reads this year. Heartbreaking story.
10. Victoria Schwab - The near witch. I haven't heard many things about this book and I thought it was quite decent. This book managed to enjoy me and I'm looking forward to her new book.
And of course, I don't want to see J.K Rowling - Harry Potter disappearing from the reading world. This series always has a special place in my heart. They never get boring.
& Also very important: fairytales.
I could go on for a while, because there are so many great books out there, but I will keep it on these 10. Link me up with your list!
