Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Today’s prompt is for my favorite books released in the last 10 years! (one for each year!)

While going through lists of the top books of each year since 2009 I have come to realize I haven’t read a lot of the older YA books. I say YA because that’s essentially all I read. So the one’s I picked for the first couple years are so are just my favorites of the books I’ve read! Eek, I feel so behind! I didn’t really get into reading until after college so I’m at a disadvantage before 2013! 

2009 : Catching Fire – by Suzanne Collins

This series was so good! And honestly if I remember right this was my first YA series that I read post college (because I read this in like, 2014 I think)


2010 : Mockingjay – by Suzanne Collins

Such a good ending to a great series!


2011 : Daughter of Smoke and Bone – by Laini Taylor

I am preemptively putting DOSAB for 2011, because I haven’t read it but I know I’ll absolutely love it. Strange the Dreamer is m favorite book and I’ve heard DOSAB is even better.. so how could I not love it?


2012 : Throne of Glass – by Sarah J Maas

I didn’t read this series until 2017 but DAMN they’re so good!


2013 : The 5th Wave – by Rick Yancey

I loved this book so much! We just won’t talk about book three though because shhh it could have ended better 🤫

Apparently I’ve never taken a photo of The 5th Wave.. so yeah.

2014 : Heir of Fire – by Sarah J Maas

This is when the Throne of Glass series really started taking off for me, because Rowan. And banter. And just ugh I loved this book.


2015 : Six of Crows – by Leigh Bardugo

The Grisha series also fell a little flat for me but I absolutely LOVED Six of Crows! This book is nothing short of phenomenal.


2016 : Gemina – by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

This one was hard because a lot of good books came out in 2016, the first book in the Illuminae Files came out in 2015 and I wanted to put that but also Six of Crows, ahhhh it’s so hard to choose!


2017 : Strange the Dreamer – by Laini Taylor



2018 : The Cruel Prince – by Holly Black

I know this one can be controversial but you know what I LOVED IT AND I HAVE NO SHAME


2019 : Sorcery of Thorns – by Margaret Rogerson

Guys, I am only halfway through Sorcery of Thorns right now and it is already my favorite read of the year! I love Margaret’s books so much, this is so beautifully written and entirely magical. Sorcery of Thorns releases June 4th! ONLY 1 WEEK TO GO!
