Top Ten Tuesday-- All-Time Faves From My Blogging Time

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (September 13th) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten Favorite Books From The Time I've Been Blogging

When we start throwing out terms like "All-Time Faves", I get super nervous!!  It's so hard for me to settle on all-time favorites without feeling like I missed something super important.  So I gotta narrow this baby down... and I'm going to do that by picking books that I've read since I started blogging (4 1/2 years ago).

1.  I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
  • Beautiful, beautiful book.  I couldn't NOT put it on this list.  Jandy Nelson = writing alien.
2.  Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas
  • The BEST YA Mystery I've ever read.  NEED more books like this in my life!!
3.  Crash and Burn by Michael Hassan
  • Completely underrated book.  It's about so many things and I would love if this author would write more books.... PLEASE!!
4.  Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
  • This book felt like a punch to the gut.  I loved it and yet it left me in an emotional tornado.
5.  Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews
  • Such a unique book!!  It's so damn funny, but it's about death.  Who can pull that off??

6.  My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
  • I don't LOVE romance books, but this romance was too cute not to love.  FYI- It's about more than just romance... like family and OMG a big THING that happens!!
7.  Winger by Matthew Quick
  • I love immature boys.  I just feel one with them for whatever reason. But seriously, this book is hilarious and cute and OMG emotional!!
8.  Cinder by Marissa Meyer
  • I don't read a lot of Fantasy or Dystopian or Fairy Tale Retellings.... so I was a little nervous going into this one.  I needed not be-- It's practically perfect!!
9.  Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
  • Another Romance book with a capital R.  Noah and Echo both have major problems, but this book is about THEM as couple more than anything else.  Which usually I would not be about.... but it became an exception :)
10.  Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
  • If you haven't read this book, just go read it.

Have you read any of these books??  What faves did you feature this week on your list?

  18. Oooh these are GREAT choices!! I definitely loved Before I Fall, Dangerous Girls, and I'll Give You the Sun- and I don't know that I'd have ever found out about the last two if it wasn't for blogging! Cinder is also a good one, one that I definitely would never have read pre-blogging (I used to think that retellings were scary hah). Love your list!!

  19. I started reading Katie McGary's books before I started blogging, and I love them so much! She's definitely an auto-buy author for me now and I'm super excited for her next book!

  20. Omgggg I adore Before I Fall & I seriously need to read more of Matthew Quick. Wasn't too fond of I'll Give You The Sun, though. Eek. hahah. Great list!!

  21. I've been dying to pick up Dangerous Girls! Some of the bloggers I follow really loved it so I'm obviously missing out on it.
