Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there is a list of top tens that you have to write about!
This week’s TTT is:
Top Ten Books Read During The Lifespan Of Your Blog!

I’ve technically had my blog for almost 3 years now!!  Besides the Iron Fey, these are not in order.
1. The Iron Fey Series – I love this series with a passion.  It’s definitely at the top for one of my all-time favorite series.  And with the spin-off series starting, I couldn’t be happier! Also, Julie Kagawa is one of my all-time favorite people as well!
2. Delirium – Lauren Oliver is a beautiful writer.  I loved everything about this book.  The premise, the writing, the characters, the story line. It was incredible.
3. Pandemonium –  Sometimes sequels soar, sometimes sequels flop.  This book was definitely a soar-er. I loved this book so much.  It was such a great follow-up to an amazing book.  Lauren Oliver has an amazing way with words.  I also loved the back and forth style in which she wrote the book.
4. Before I Fall – Another Lauren Oliver favorite!  I’m telling you, I am seriously hooked on this chick!  This was just a great book.  Again, the beautiful writing and all that.  Just a beautiful story.
5. The Hunger Games – Of course this had to make the list.  Wonderful series.  Just an awesome read.  And the movie was pretty fantastic.
6. The Wings Series – This one has to make the list because it’s what originally got me interested in the Fey.  And I’m so glad I did because it opened me up to a lot of books that I normally wouldn’t have read!
7. The Pretty Little Liars Series  –  I read all these really quickly!  I have to say though, I’m disappointed now that there are more books.  I was happy before with the ending, and when I was reading them I was so excited that there were going to be more books, but now it just feels like they’re just overdoing it because of the success of the show.  (which I love, btw, even though it’s completely different than the books!)
8. Thirteen Reasons Why – What to even say about this book?  It is an incredible piece of literature and truly has an amazing message that I think every teenager should learn (and even some adults!)
9. The Crank Trilogy – I love Elen Hopkins.  I LOVE her writing style.  And I love that she took a hard time and a personal demon of her own and turned it into something that everyone can learn from.
10. The Gallagher Girl Series –  I don’t know what it is about this series that makes me love it so much, but I do.  I am incredibly in love with this series and I am anxiously awaiting the next book!
(So is my mom!)
What’s your top ten this week?

  1. It looks like I’ve got some YA reading to catch up on!! Loved The Hunger Games Trilogy, but I’d love to dip into some of your other suggestions, especially since I have a very precocious third-grade reader at home. I love your blog and can’t wait to chat books with you!

    • Ack!!! My screen name from a family recipe blog popped up instead of my real name. How funny — I guess this will make for an interesting discussion about names tomorrow in class. In case you hadn’t figured it out – this is Anne Regules, your EN102 prof!!
