Top Ten Books I've Read in the Lifespan of My Blog

Hosted over at the Broke and Bookish

This week's topic (as might be able to tell from the title) is Top 10  Books I've read in the Lifespan of my Blog. And oh my goodness this was so hard to narrow down to just 10!!

Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

*wipes tear from eye* awww my very first Melina Marchetta book!
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Etienne St. Clair.
Le swoon.
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

Oh good lord, the PAIN of that ending!
Saving June by Hannah Harrington

Oh the snark. Oh the awesomeness of a road trip. Oh the swoon-worthy romance!
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

On Tumblr, we have this little phrase which is perfect to describe my reaction to this book.

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

I'm normally not into fantasy.... but this book series is so good I'd marry it if I could.
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

Vampires. The non-sparkly kind.
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley

I don't know what it is with Aussie authors but they just write the best books!
Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder

My first Snyder book.
After finishing this, I completely understand why everyone loves her writing.
Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred

I swear the author must've been peeking in my head or something when she was writing this because this book has everything I've ever wanted in a story!


  1. Wonderful list! I love Maria V. Snyder's books but I haven't read Touch of Power yet. We have TFiOS and Anna in common, and I also really enjoyed Saving June and Graffiti Moon. It was so hard to narrow down the list this week. I've heard such good things about Melina Marchetta, and I expect to see her on a lot of lists this week.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I've never read any of these, heard of a few though. Looks like I have some looking up to do on GoodReads, lol. Always looking to add to my to-read list!

  3. Amazing list!! :) I've read all except last one! I love Melina Marchetta and Jellicoe Road would be first on my list if I had review it on my blog!

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday

    PS. I like your blog so I'm your new follower! :)

  4. I haven't read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, but I really want too. It sounds like a really good story and everyone seems to adore John Green. :) Great list!

  5. Jellicoe Road and Anna are on my list too! And most of the others are in my TBR pile - I'll have to get to them asap.

  6. The only ones I've read on your list are Immortal Rules and TFiOS (which are also on MY list) but you have a bunch here that are on my TBR. Great picks!

  14. Aaah! I need to read everything in your list, Joie! I know, HOW COULD I?? Gosh, I must have been living under the rock all this time! x(

    Anyway, I hope all is well and I will make it a point to stop by more!

    Best Wishes,

  16. Love your post. I'll admit I have read exactly none of the books on your list, but "Clockwork Prince" looks interesting.
    I'm actually an author as well as a blogger. Looking for good readers to let me know their thoughts on my work or the work of my fellow authors. If you're at all interested, I'd be willing to supply a digital copy of one of our novels. Pick one out at engenbooks.com if interested. I write YA thrillers.
    Again, love the post.

  18. I love you. No, seriously, I do. The Sweet Gum Tree is AMAZING and I swear I barely know anyone who has read it! Some girls on Goodreads made me read it and now we have a little I heart Nick club.

    Love the list. There's a few on there I need to read & a few I need to look up now.
