Top Ten Books I’ve Read This Year
I’ve read some great books this year! Granted, it’s sort of been an off-year for me reading-wise, particularly since mid-August, but I have read some amazing books this year.
- Winter by Marissa Meyer. I read it last month (and have sadly procrastinated with writing a review), but it was awesome, and I loved it and it was such a fantastic end to a really awesome series.
- Ash by Malinda Lo. It’s my favorite one of hers that I’ve read! If you love fairy tale re-tellings, I think you’ll love this book!
- Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Adichie. I am so impressed with her ability to tell a story, and I can’t wait to read more of her!
- Breaker by Emma Raveling. It’s such a great end to the series, and I am so sad that this one is over.
- None Of The Above by I.W. Gregorio.
- Joyride by Anna Banks. I felt so much for Carly, and how hard she and her brother worked to bring her parents over to the U.S.
- Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor. I love the magic in this book, and differently awesome the magic and mythology is. Also, Sunny is such a great character.
- Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I felt for Maddy, and everything that happened and all of the secrets she learned, but it is a great book, and still one of my favorites, even if I have mixed feelings about the ending.
- How To Say Goodbye In Robot by Natalie Standiford. This book was everything I wanted from Eleanor & Park, and I just loved Jonah and Bea and the radio show they call into every night.
- The Immortal Life Of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. I am astounded that the family of someone whose cells contributed so much to science can’t get decent medical insurance. Really, this book has astounded me in so many ways.
