It’s another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten Books I’ve Read This Year
I have a feeling this should be called the top ones I’ve read SO FAR this year, because there are some awesome books set to release soon. Also, there are a few others I really want to include, but I can’t, because they are INSPY nominations I’m judging. Alas, I can’t discuss them until the winners are announced. But, these books I’ve included are each wonderful in their own right. It’s just so hard to pick 10!
Here’s my list of this year’s top favorites, in no particular order:
It Had to Be You by Susan May Warren (review here)
The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn by Lori Benton (review here)
Dancing With Fireflies by Denise Hunter (review here)
The Sentinels of Andersonville (review here)
George Washington’s Secret Six: The Spy Ring that Saved the American Revolution by Brian Kilmeade and Don Yaeger (review here)
A Beauty So Rare by Tamera Alexander (review here)
A Stillness of Chimes by Meg Moseley (review here)
The Headmistress of Rosemere by Sarah E. Ladd (review here)
Healer of Carthage by Lynne Gentry (review here)
Divergent by Veronica Roth (mini review here)
What are YOUR favorites from this year???
I wasn’t that much into Divergent, which I have no idea as to why! I looooved the movie, so it’s a bit weird, right? 🙂
Here’s my top ten https://gorgeousbooks.wordpress.com/2014/06/10/top-ten-tuesday-2/
Irene, thanks for visiting!
It is funny that you liked the movie but not the book 🙂 They were different, but I did love both. I can see, though, how some people wouldn’t like it at all.
Great list! I loved A Beauty So Rare, it’s on my list today too! I also liked Divergent.
Yay for mutual favorite books!!!! Thanks for dropping by, Lakin!
Some great books. I am looking forward to the Sentinels of Andersonville. Andersonville is only a 45 minute drive from my home, so when Tracy Groot is visiting there in Jan. 2015, she is going to stop by and talk to my 2 book clubs! Really excited. I loved Burning Sky (it is on my list), so I need to put Tamsen Littlejohn on my TBR list.
You’ve mentioned my top two favorites!!! Sentinels and Tamsen are both so good.
Ooh, that will be so fun! Enjoy the book – maybe you’ll learn something new about your local history 🙂
You MUST read The Pursuit of Tamsen Litlejohn. It’s so rich and unique – really a beautiful story. I haven’t read Burning Sky yet, but I really want to.
Thanks for the input, Beckie!
Of these, I’ve only read DIVERGENT. I’ve put some of these other titles on my TBR list, so thanks for the heads up!
Yay! I’m always happy to make recommendations. I hope you enjoy them!
There are SO many favorites (so far) this year. Like you, I enjoyed It Had to Be You (very much) and am about to dive into the next book in the series. And of course, the year still has months yet to go! Great first half. 🙂
PS: forgot to add, I heart your “top ten Tuesday” promo banner up top of this post. So cute. 🙂
Why thank you, Rissi!
Yes, there are some great books this year. I can’t wait to read Susan’s next one! I’m expecting it soon. There are also some I’m looking forward to later this summer and fall. Tomorrow’s TTT will be fun, since it includes some of them!
What a fun list! I have read several of the same books and enjoyed them.:)
