Before I get into this week’s Top Ten list, I want to share this blog post that was written by one of my favorite YA authors, A.S. King. Not only is she a brilliant writer, but based on articles like this, she is obviously an amazing human being. I urge any of you who work with or live with teenagers to take a moment and read what she has to say. This post came from hippodilly circus. Once you are finished, come on back for some TTT fun!
This week for Top Ten Tuesday The Broke and the Bookish are looking for our all-time favorites (from the past 3-5 years).
1. Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride. Devilishly dark humor.
2. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. I just loved this sweet romance.
3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Totally obsessed with cyborg Cinder.
4. Okay for Now by Gary Schmidt. There’s just something about Doug and the birds.
5. I am the Messenger by Marcus Zusak. This is one of the few books that I have read more than once. I think I have read it three times now. I adore it so much.
6. The Diviners by Libba Bray. This one was so creepy!
7. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. This one is never on the shelf at the library because I keep making people read it.
8. Winger by Andrew Smith. I read this one in one sitting on my front porch.
9. Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers. I can’t believe it took me so long to pick this one up. I now own the series. I still need to read the last one.
10. Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy. I tend to become a little obsessed when I find something I like. Current obsession is this series.
11. Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg. This is the type of romance books I like.
12. I’ll Give you the Sun by Jandy Nelson. ALL. MY. LOVE.
13. Out of the Easy by Ruta Septys. This is the kind of book that makes me read historical fiction.
If you are in my neighborhood, stop in the Teen Room and check out the Top Ten Tuesday display. I am trying something new! The display does not match this post exactly because so many of my all-time favorites are checked out, but you’ll find more amazing titles for you to try.
