Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

Hi there gorgeous readers!  I started blogging in May of 2011 and I’ve read many books after that!  So here are my favorites from May 2011 to May 2012.


Die for Me by Amy Plum – Is a story of revenants, immortal beings with a compulsion of saving lives and the innocent girl that falls in love with one of them.  Great series!

Clarity by Kim Harrington – Is a contemporary novel with a psychic twist of a girl that has visions when she touches an object and how she uses that gift to help others.

The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa – I LOVE the Iron Fey series with a passion and this was the perfect ending to the series.  Love you Ash!!!!

The Goddess Test by Aimée Carter – The start of a series based on the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades that stole my heart.

The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross – Steampunk-X-Men-meets-The League of Extraordinary Gentelmen. Yep, that awesome.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – Wow!  This is still one of my favorite books, so unique, full of magic, tragedy, love, and such beautiful writing.


Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock – This is probably one of the least know YA series, but I happen to love it. It’s the story of D.J. and her family that owns a dairy farm.  It’s about sports, about love, family and friendship.

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder – Is the heartbreaking story of a teen with cancer, the family that loves her and hopes for the best and the determination to live.

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green – You know, right?


Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins – Is the start of the Sweet series, a story of angels, demons and the fight of good an evil.

Have you read any of these? What’s in your top ten this week?



I'm an avid reader (since I learned to read at age four) and a book blogger (since May, 2011).I read mostly YA, but I also read romance, new adult and some middle grade.

Born in Puerto Rico, hola :), military wife for 22-years, and mother of three boys.I work full time doing something else that I love (sadly I don't get paid for reading!)

    So many authors I was once interested in! Among them were Julie Kagawa, Aimée, and Kady. In fact I own the book you feature from Kady, so perhaps I’ll dig that one off in the not-too-distant future and give it a read. Well, depending on if my TBR pile allows for it. 🙂

    TFIOS was a story I read prior to watching the DVD, and surprisingly (for me), I did like it.

  2. OMG YES THE IRON FEY SERIES! This used to be my JAM and I adored the whole world and the characters and how easy it was to read omg! I also used to adore the Shatter Me series at this time, BUT I still love it now (because it really is the best!)

  3. Aww, Liza, what a rockin’ list! TFIOS broke me so much. But I loved it. 😂

    DOSAB of course has a special place in my heart. From the very first line, I knew it was special.

      I agree with you Leah. I was reading TFIOS while recovering from surgery and I cried to hard I though I was going to have to go to the hospital! I can laugh about it now…

  4. Oh I love Daughter of Smoke and Bone and TFIOS!! Of course for TFIOS.😂 I read that just when I was starting off my blog as a book blog and ajfdksald it really impacted me and nearly made me cry. I’d also like to read the Iron Fey series! I own a few books in the series but not the first…which is entirely unhelpful.😂
