Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far
This topic is well-timed! I’ve been thinking about doing my own mid-year list of favorite books so far, and it’ll be interesting to compare it to my end-of-the-year list to see how much it’s changed. All links go to my review of the books I talk about. Here are some of my favorite books so far!
- It’s Not Summer Without You/We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han. These two books had me crying! But I love this series, and they have a way of making me feel nostalgic. I’m definitely looking forward to re-reading them this summer.
- Moonglass by Jessi Kirby. I just love Jessi Kirby and how much I connect with her characters, no matter what they’re going through. And Anna is no exception.
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I related to Cath and her love of Simon Snow so much, and the excerpts from the fictional Simon Snow series and the even more fictional Simon Snow fanfics make Fangirl even more interesting and unique.
- A Death-Struck Year by Makiia Lucier. This book is such a great historical fiction! I love that it’s set during the Spanish Flu epidemic, and it’s definitely different than a lot of other historical fiction books I’ve read.
- The Impossible Knife Of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson. When I saw that Laurie Halse Anderson had a new book coming out, I knew I had to read it because I love her like nobody’s business! It’s definitely up there with Speak as one of my favorite books by Laurie Halse Anderson.
- Stiff: The Curious Lives Of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach. This is one of the most interesting and funny books I’ve listened to this year, and it’s surprisingly interesting and not gross. (Well, maybe a couple parts are, but from someone who gets grossed out easily, you know it’s has to be not gross if I say so).
- Cress by Marissa Meyer. Cress is my favorite book in this entire series, and I couldn’t help but love Cress. I just love how all of the different stories come together, and Cress is the book where everything REALLY starts coming together.
- Out Of The Easy by Ruta Sepetys. I just love Ruta Sepetys, and 1950’s New Orleans is such a great setting for the book! And Josie is such a great character.
- Me Since You by Laura Weiss. I felt so much for Rowan, and her story is one that’s hard to forget.
- My Best Friend, Maybe by Caela Carter. This really is one of my favorite books I’ve read so far, and I love the friendship between Sadie and Colette.
