Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish
As you might notice, I mixed my dates for the TTT post, so if you rather don’t get confused, you can head over to last week’s post by clicking here.
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen – I adore a lot of Dessen’s books, but The Truth About Forever and Just Listen and my favorites. Why? It’s a combination of the insightful writing and the awesome characters.
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay – This book is amazing. I which I could find the words to tell you how much I loved it (I tried in my review, find it here). It is the story of two people that are broken, and how they heal each other.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – The Book Thief deserves all the stars in the world and more. The magic of this book is in the writing, in the way that words carry meaning, feelings, senses, they are real, with weight, flavor, and smell.,, See my review here.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown – This series is like nothing you’ve ever read before! I kid you not, it’s a combination of sci-fi, roman mythology, and an extreme Hunger Games. It’s a story of slavery, of injustice, of becoming “more”, of faith and justice. Go and read it! See my review here.
On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta – On the Jellico Road is an outstanding story of loss, redemption, and the power of love. Is a combination of two stories and how they intertwine each other. See my review here.
The Scorpio Races and The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater – What can I say about Stiefvater’s writing that will make you run and read these books? They are lyrical, insightful, it’s like poetry mixed with paranormal. See my review for Scorpio here and Raven Boys here.
Yes, I know these are more than ten, so forgive me slight cheating 🙂 You know I could keep going and going, right?
