Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
15 in honor of 2015, duh! At least there's a decent excuse for breaking the rules for this one. This list is subject to change because we still have 2 weeks left in the month and I have a lot of awesome reading material left! In no particular order...
1. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta- This was my most recent Epic Rec from Bekka and I loved it so much I still haven't managed to properly formulate a review, though I am expecting to be able to post one this week.
2. Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay- If you ask me, this book was so much better than all of her other retellings. Granted, I love Jay's writing, but this was just on an entirely different level. And that's saying a lot because I adored OF BEAST AND BEAUTY.
3. The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord- This book, guys, this book. It leaves me speechless. It's way too early to share my review, but I'll say it was even more poignant, beautiful, and powerful than her debut (that I also loved!) OPEN ROAD SUMMER, and that's saying something!
4. I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson- I read both this and THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE by Jandy Nelson within three months of each other. I loved them both and I'm officially a Jandy Nelson fangirl, but I have to say that IGYTS is just so...wow. WOW.
5. The Kiss of Deception by Mary Pearson- While it wasn't perfect, I am dying to see everything that happens next in this series! It was just short of perfect in my eyes and I am coveting its sequel like no other.
6. One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva- Having a gay best friend makes me love LGBTQ fiction that he feels he can relate to, and I loved this book because it's so simple and perfect and that's what makes it so wonderful.
7. To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han- Yeah...I still haven't written my review after over seven months of having reading this because I just can't word when I think about it.
8. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge- One of my favorite books of the year, hands down. A dark, beautifully written fairytale retelling? Sign me up ten fold! It seriously blew me away.
9. The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot- Yeah, this entire series was made of awesomeness. I can't believe I waited so long to read it!
10. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas- SWOONY FAERIE MEN!!!!! I don't really know what else to say in regards to this book because it makes me want to dance around chanting about all the swoony, hot faerie men I've encountered. I mean, plus, the plot is mind-blowing and it's super well-written, so there's that, too. But, really...the men. Yes.
11. Because You'll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas- This was a book that I didn't expect to love as much as I did, but I sure as heck loved it. It's surprisingly powerful despite its unique delivery and I will be book pushing it on everyone in 2015. Thank you, wonderful internship, for allowing me to read this one early.
12. Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers- I binged this entire series this year, so really all of the books deserve a spot on this list, but I loved the final book more than anything else and want to give it a shout out specifically. I cannot wait to see what else LaFevers has in store for us in her beautifully intricate world with wonderful characters.
13. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas- I still haven't written my review after over five months because, just, wow. I love Sarah too much. Coherency goes out the window. Cannot word, vair hard, logic what?
14. Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard- This ending! It made me bawl and it tugged at my heartstrings and it killed me in every possible way and I loved every minute of it because I can never not love Susan Dennard.
15. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman- I was a bit iffy going into this one, but I really loved how dark and historically accurate it was. Definitely a series I'll continue to look out for!
