Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: Books Released in the Last 10 Years

I’m participating in Top Ten Tuesday for the first time, a fun blogger prompt hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s topic is about our favorite books published in the past ten years. This was a pretty monumental task for me because choosing favorite books is hard without any prompts- I simply love too many. Ah, the troubles of being a book nerd.



One of my first forays into fairytale re-imaginings, and I even bought it from my favorite childhood bookstore!



Hands down one of my favorite reads of all time. Plus I managed to snag a signed copy at a library sale for only $.50.



This book is the bee’s knees.



This is one of those books that stays with you years after you’ve read it.



It took me a solid 100 pages to get into this one, but once I did I didn’t stop for 3 weeks until I’d finished the entire trilogy.



A truly unique mystery that takes place within the hallowed halls of the Vatican.



Trevor Noah is literally the only thing that makes the news tolerable for me. His memoir is funny, touching, and showcases how incredible he really is.



One of the few times I gave a book a standing ovation.

2018: It’s a tie between two books that left me stunned.

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark was the most original true crime book I’ve ever read and it’s devastating that we won’t be able to read anything else by its deceased author. Once I finished it I had to sit down for a few minutes alone in silence.
There There is an astounding debut that takes place among the groups and areas I grew up in. Nothing I could say could describe how powerful it is. Just go read it, you won’t regret it.

2019 (so far)

    1. The film was amazing. I knew what was coming but it still ripped my heart out.

      I definitely recommend The Diviners, especially on audiobook. It’s a really fun series.


  1. Picking favorites is always really tough for me, too, no matter the subject! This topic did provide a fun walk down memory lane for me, though πŸ™‚

    I haven’t read any of your books. I started THE MARTIAN, but it was so slllooowww that I just couldn’t keep reading. My husband LOVED it, though, and he only reads novels once every few years! We both really enjoyed the film.

    Happy TTT!

    1. The Martian can be overwhelming with all the technical bits. I think I remember it being slow to start but it was pretty action packed once they realized he was still on planet. And really funny too.

      This is one of the few instances where I like the movie almost as much as the book. I must have seen it about 10 times by now.

      Happy TTT!


    1. Book blogs are terrible for TBRs! Y’all have added to mine to make it go from “Eeek!” to “I’m going to have to live for 2000 years.”


  2. Gotta read Born a Crime at some point. The Diviners is on a few lists this week. I haven’t had a chance to read any of these yet though. So many good books I need to read on these lists this week!
