Top 10 Tuesday (28)


This meme is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

This weeks topic is:




Wow, this was a tough one! I didn't get the chance to add any Dystopian, Paranormal or fantasy books. That is the main reason I didn't include my all time love Harry Potter. I think it's already obvious and I hope that most people have read it. Markus Zusak Juliet Marillier and Jodi Lynn Anderson were easy. Those three popped in my head right away, but I had to think hard about my other choices. I decided to stick with the theme I love the most ;)

I think I need to make a "top 100 books I recommend the most", haha. Here are some books that would make it to the list:

Dystopian/Paranormal books:
-Julie Kagawa - The immortal rules.
-Veronica Roth - Divergent.

-Carrie Ryan - The forest of hands and teeth.
-Kat Zhang - What's left of me.
-Brodi Ashton - Everneath.
-Courtney Summers - This is not a test.

Fantasy:
-Robin LaFevers - Grave Mercy.
-Leigh Bardugo - Shadow and bone.
-Rae Carson - The girl of fire and thorns.
-Sarah J. Maas - Throne of glass.

Leave a link to you TT in the comments! :)

  4. I haven't read ANY of these yet! I've been telling myself over and over again that I must read CINDER soon, but so far I haven't. :( TIGER LILY, too, is a book I really want to check out, as well as SWEETLY and THE BOOK THIEF. I've heard awesome stuff about all these novels, so it's no wonder you're recommending them!

    Great list, Mel. Once I take myself out of my book buying ban, I'll get to these ASAP!

  8. Oo I like how you split it up by genre! Many of these I still need to read. I am slowly exploring more fairy tale retellings - you are like my main source of info in this genre :). I definitely have my eye on Tiger Lily, The Immortal Rules, and Heart's Blood.

  14. Just read Scarlet :D In a single day. It was so phenomenal. I recommend those books to anyone, no matter what genre they like. It just encompasses all of them!!

  15. Yay for The Book Thief! It's such a wonderful book. I'm debating if I should pick up Scarlet or not because I didn't enjoy Cinder. But I've heard this one is better. I've heard good things about Tiger Lily so Ishould check it out sometime.

    Great list Mel! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  19. I'm seeing The Book Thief all over the place. I still need to read it. And Tiger Lily.

  20. I've heard so many great things about Tiger Lily, but I still need to read it. Scarlet (and Cinder) are both high on my TBR. I won Cinder recently, so I've got a head start. :)

    Thanks for visiting.

  21. Eek, so many people this week are recommending The Book Thief and I am so ashamed I haven't read it yet! I have only read Juliet Marillier most recent YA release, so her books are other ones that I really need to get to! You have great taste, Mel!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Lovely list! The Book Thief made my list, too! And so did Divergent. I loved The Forest of Hands and Teeth, too! Marissa Meyer is coming to where I live, so I ordered Cinder and need to read it stat! I read Entwined, but it just didn't do it for me....

  23. The Book Thief. How horrific would it be for me to admit that I have yet to read that one? (Hopefully) this will be rectified soon, because otherwise I feel like I should just hand in my blogging badge... X)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I had a tough time with this list too. So many great books to recommend! I adore Book Thief, The Other Boleyn Girl, and Cinder. Thanks for sharing!

  25. I still haven't read The Book Thief, if you can believe it! I even have a paperback on my shelf. I've got to do it soon! Love Marillier too!

  33. Wonderful choices, Mel! Some are new to me & others like Tiger Lily, I can't wait to read! Thanks for sharing! :)

  34. I really haven't read very many of these, and out of them only one really struck me with it's incredible-ness (but so many have such stunning covers! They're incredibly beautiful) and that is Tiger Lily- I read it last year and loved it so much, though I don't think I ever reviewed it which I really ought to because it's just so good! Great list, Mel!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Awesome list :D So many great books. <3 Sigh, Entwined was perfect :D As was Scarlet. <3 I enjoyed Sweetly, but not as much as the first book, Sisters Red ;p Thank you for sharing. <3 :)

  36. FAIRY TALES ARE AWESOME! <3333
    They're timeless classics and modern retellings bring such interesting and creative twists :) These all look so yummy >_< and the covers are SO pretty too! (cover junkie XD guilty) I've actually never read a Philippa Gregory book! :o but Tiger Lily blew me away as well!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh, how I love the Book Thief! I was indeed surprised your list didn't include HP haha. Those fairytales demand to be read btw! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Scarlet, but I've been meaning to read Sisters Red (and then Sweetly) and Tiger Lily for such a long time. I will soon. Ish. ;)
