Top Ten Tuesday

…is a weekly feature by The Broke and the BookishΒ blog (btw on their blog they mention signing their linky widget… anyone know what that means?). They do a weekly list of top ten [insert something book related].

TOP TEN BOOKS YOU WOULD CLASSIFY AS ALL TIME FAVOURITE BOOKS FROM THE PAST THREE YEARS

Cinder by Marissa Meyer
It’s a modern day retelling of Cinderella as a cyborg.

The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
The prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy – but it’s a children’s novel so it’s super easy and interesting to read!

Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Intense love story about a university romance filled with tension strong scenes and heated physical activity.

Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Dystopian novel from a future where genetic research has mutated horribly causing women to die at 20 and men to die at 25

Evermore by Alyson Noel
Paranormal romance which features a new kind of creatures: being who drink alchemistic liquids to become immortal

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
The second series in the world of Moroi, Dhamphir and Strigoi world where we finally get to see Adrian’s love story start to resolve itself.

Divergent by Veronica Roth
Tobias and Tris’s secret romance πŸ˜‰

Balthazar by Claudia Gray
The last novel in the Evernight series in which Balthazar finally gets the girl he deserves (*hint hint* he fills in as her history teacher and she gets to be the student fawning over him! I love secret romances!! πŸ˜› )

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen
My absolute favourite book I’ve read EVER πŸ˜€ A young Queen come back to claim her crown and fix her corrupt kingdom. Many people dubbed it the “female Game of Thrones” – personally I haven’t read or watched Game of Thrones yet, but if it’s as good as this novel I can’t wait πŸ™‚

The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M Auel
Mumma’s favourite series: historical facts in disguise as a delightful novel.

    1. Thanks so much Alison! I had a look at your list – was Everyday really that good? I’ve seen it often at the bookshop and it looked pretty interesting πŸ™‚ I’ve read The Fault In Our Stars too, but I seemed to have missed the John Green fan boat on that one, as I found it only okay. I’m reading Looking for Alaska next which I’m hoping I’ll enjoy more πŸ™‚
