My Favorite Books From the Last 10 Years

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Let's take another trip down memory lane and talk about our favorite books. I've only been a blogger since 2010 so we are going even beyond that to chat about all my favorite books from the last 10 years. Well, not all of them because that'd take too long. Instead, we are discussing my favorite books that (1) were read in their release date (because why not?) and (2) were released in the last 10 years.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is: Favorite Books Released In the Last Ten Years (one book per year):

Going Bovine by Libba Bray: Wow, this book brings back so many memories. It's an absolute wild ride with talking gnomes and a punk angel. All told in a snarky attitude. Seriously, I still recommend this to everyone to this day.

Zombies vs. Unicorns edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier: This is a short story collection from your favorite authors. Each author picked a side whether they're on Team Zombie or Team Unicorn and then writes a short story as such. It's pretty awesome!

Falling Under by Gwen Hayes: More people need to read this one. It's a dark paranormal that has demons, a gorgeous, intriguing world, and a heartbreaking romance.

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: I don't remember much about Pushing the Limits except the heartbreaking romance.

Ink by Amanda Sun: Not a lot of people talk about this one either. And it's amazing. Katie is studying abroad in Japan and meets a mysterious boy who seems to never stop doodling in his notebook. He is guarding a secret about his notebook and when Katie begins to uncover it, she becomes entangled in an ancient-old secret that should have stayed buried.

Cress by Marissa Meyer: I was late to the Lunar Chronicles but I finally caught up when Cress released. Cress and Thorne are probably my favorite pairing of the series and after not liking Scarlet that much, I was surprised to like this book so much more.

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman: A retelling of Alexander the Great before he was great, yes please. This series concluded last year and it was such a magnificent ride. If you're into fantasy with a tiny amount of magic, this is your book.

Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor: Will we ever get the third book? The world needs more books with amazing time traveling adventures. Into the Dim was marketed as a YA Outlander and I got to say, it's not wrong.

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee: This one is such a treasure. Combining a road trip-esque plot in a historical fiction was the best thing ever. Plus, Monty's sass makes me want to return to this book again and again.

Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen: My favorite book of the last year was no contest. Hands down, Reign the Earth was such a beautiful, inspiring, empowering fantasy like I've never read before. It was fantastic and if the publisher wants to give us 10 more in the series, I would not be opposed.

What are some of your favorite books from the last 10 years?

  2. I love The Lunar Chronicles series! It's so fun. CINDER is actually on my list today.

    Happy TTT!

  3. What? I can't believe I've finally found another lover of GOING BOVINE. I love that book. In fact I re-read it last year and had another good cry over the ending. My 10 years of favorites

  4. Nice picks! Some new to me ones here but I am SOOOOOO with you on Into the Dim!! Loved that one and I am devastated that it looks like a third book isn't happening anymore because holy cow has it been a long time since book 2 came out. At least it feels that way to me! I remember reading it as an ARC, so it feels like a decade ago instead of what 2 or 3 years ago now?

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
