Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. I couldn’t decide which books I loved the best, so these aren’t in any order.
- Find Me by Romily Bernard: I’m not used to reading thrillers, mainly because they do not scare me. I usually find them pretty cheesy, but not this one. I completely adored the writing style, and the creepiness was off the charts.
- Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell: I enjoyed how raw and real their love story is. Rowell did a fantastic job at describing an awkward high school romance.
- The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan: This series will always have a special place in my heart! His characters are like my own family, and I would plunge into their world without hesitation. The characters are as real as I am.
- Paper Towns by John Green: No matter how overrated I think Green’s other books are, I will always think Paper Towns gets a bad name. Definitely his best book. It’s quirky, thought provoking, and glorious.
- Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger: I’ve already read this twice this year, and that’s saying something. I fell in love with Holden and his story after the first page.
- Divergent (and Insurgent but not Allegiant) by Veronica Roth: I’m obligated to add these two books to my list. I do love them, but I still feel as if they aren’t as original as they could be. The adventures and the characters kept me turning the pages, but the plot itself wasn’t special. Overall, I enjoyed the first two. ONLY THE FIRST TWO.
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: I just completed this book a couple hours ago, and I enjoyed it just as much as Eleanor and Park. The fanfiction twist was interesting, and I’m a sucker for a cute romance.
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon: Unique. That is the only word I can use to describe this book. The name is already wildly interesting, and it’s intriguing to see our same world in someone else’s eyes.
- Cinder (Lunar Chronicles series) by Marissa Meyers: I adore fairy tales. I love a good dystopia. Put them together, and you get a fabulous series riddled with troubled love and dangerous adventure.
- The Help by Kathryn Stockett: I practically read this book in one sitting. Historical fiction isn’t my favorite genre, but the style and characters put a whole new spin on an old concept.
