Top Ten Tuesday-- 10 Books For the Last 10 Years

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme now hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (June 11h) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten Books From the Last Ten Years

  • I was going to do this week's topic (Unpopular Bookish Opinions), but I'm pretty sure all of my opinions are unpopular & I should probably not make myself look any more unlikable than I already am.  I missed the book I read in the last 10 years list a few weeks ago, so I'm going to catch up on it now.  I freaking LOVE this idea for a list!!  Very cool!!
  • I'm doing this as my favorite books during the year published as opposed to a book I read during that year:

2018  Sadie by Courtney Summers

  • Obv.  Favorite author writes a powerful/awesome book??  It's going on the list!

2017  Bad Girls with Perfect Faces by Lynn Weingarten

  • This book is ME.

2016  The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith

  • This book hurt my heart and it was beautifully written.

2015  The Creeping by Alexandra Sirowy


2014  I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

  • Jandy is queen.

2013  Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

  • 2013 had so many good books that it was hard to choose, but I ended up picking this one because it has the college setting I've always wanted AND I read it in one night bawling my eyes out.

2012  Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler

  • I had to get Ms. Ockler on this list.

2011  Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) by Sarah Mlynowski

  • This book is also ME.

2010  Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers 

  • This book made me a fan for life.

2009  The Hate List by Jennifer Brown

  • I love Jennifer Brown. This book blew me away when I read it.


  1. Nice list! But you know, just because you hold an opinion that you think isn't popular, doesn't mean people will dislike you for it. In fact, I'm finding that many of the bloggers doing this meme this week hold very similar "unpopular" opinions!

  2. Ha, I love your reasoning for not doing this week's topic! Although, I would love to see your unpopular opinions!

  3. Great list! I really want to give Sadie a try - I've seen such good reviews and I've heard the audiobook's brilliant.

  4. I loved Hate List, I barely see anyone else whose read that book! I also didn't do this week's topic, I couldn't come up with enough unpopular opinions!

  5. I really want to read Fangirl and Bad Girls with Pretty Faces soon! Also, I've seen a lot of things that I've disagreed with this morning, but they've all been presented in a way where I can nod and say, "Okay, I get that!" So I don't think anyone would hate you over this. Or, at least, I hope not. Yikes!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

    1. Haha, thanks!! I don't think people will dislike me, I just think that I show enough of that side of my opinionated side on here. Bad Girls with Perfect Faces is perfection to me. I hope you read that one!

  6. I need to read Bad Girls With Pretty Faces so thanks for reminding me to do that!!!

  7. I see some authors I love on this list, and I had I'll Give You the Sun on my list too. Bad Girls was soooo good. I am happy you are showing it a little love.

  8. Bad Girls With Perfect Faces is AWESOME. Fangirl too- hard to believe that was 2013. Wow.

    I need to read more Courtney Summers.

  9. I loved Sadie and Fangirl! I haven't read the rest on your list - but I will be adding to my TBR lol. I love this idea <3

  10. I loved Fangirl. I'm sure you're not unlikable though :-).

  11. I finally listened to the unabridged audio version of Fangirl this year... Although I liked this book, I didn't quite feel like it lived up to the hype for me.

  12. I’m more than happy to discover this great site. I need to to thank you for ones time for this wonderful read!! I definitely enjoyed every part of it 한국야동닷컴
