Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.
Today I am sharing with you the top ten (or eleven… shh) books I’ve read so far this year. These books weren’t necessarily published this year, and likewise there are some that were published this year but I read last year, so aren’t in this list. So, in no particular order:
Geekhood: Close Encounters of the Girl Kind by Andy Robb: I know, I know, I keep raving about this book (check out my review here). But if you love geekiness, contemporary YA that will make you laugh and books from a teenage boy’s POV, then you HAVE to pick this up. Seriously.
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa: I was convinced to read this by Daphne and Faye, and I’m so glad I did. The best vampire book I have read in a long while, I am dying to read the sequel as soon as I’ve written my review for this.
Losing It by Cora Carmack: My first big NA book, this set the standard for all future NA (one that not many other books meet, sadly). Funny and sexy, this book (and author) have quickly become one of my favourites (check out my review here).
Every Seventh Wave by Daniel Glattauer: A sequel to one of my favourite books ever, it felt like I waited ages to read this! But it was oh so good, and definitely goes on my treasured shelf (see my review here).
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson: I read this one on holiday, and thinking back I really enjoyed it. Romance, heartbreak, friendship and sadness, this book was a real emotional rollercoaster.
Happy Families by Janey Fraser: I love how lighthearted Janey’s books are. I like reading about kids/parents, and the multiple points of view makes for lots of drama!
You Don’t Know Me by Sophia Bennett: This was such a refreshing read. While tackling some issues, it was a fun, musical read that I just devoured.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: You guys. I cannot express how much I adore this author. Like, when I eventually get to meet her, I am never going to let go. Her latest book, about fanfiction? NEED I SAY MORE.
You Had Me At Hello by Mhairi McFarlane: I just adored this book, and I thought it was chick fic at its finest.
Pivot Point by Kasie West: One of my favourite debuts of 2013 (check out my review here), Pivot Point has romance, drama and dual timelines! It sort of tested the whole idea of fate and destiny and I LOVED IT.
Keeping You A Secret by Julie Peters: I loved this LGBT YA, and loved how it tackled girl/girl teen relationships. Definitely an author that I need to read more of.
I loved Second Chance Summer! It was such an incredible book. I really want to read Pivot Point this year, and I’m definitely going to read Losing It very soon, as so many people love it. Great list!
My Top Ten
Thanks Hollie! I was surprised at how fond I am of Second Chance Summer. And you must read Pivot Point/Losing It, as they are amazing!!
Oh, I loved Second Chance Summer! Have you read Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour? That’s brilliant as well.
I have not, but will definitely look out for it now! Thanks for the recommendation 🙂
Fangirl would definitely be on my list because I loved it so much. I’m going to definitely try the Geekhood books out now. Great choices! 🙂
Such a great list! Happy to see Losing It, Fangirl and Second Chance Summer here. And I’ve seen Keeping You a Secret around – I’ll have to check it out sometime! I’m with you on Contemporary. That’s all I feel like reading lately!
I have read some others, but contemporary has really stood out for me. Though there are some good YA thrillers that I need to read, so my list at the end of the year may look different!
I love the Geekhood series so much, glad you like them too! I really liked You Don’t Know Me,it was a really shocker of a book for me as it wasn’t what I was expecting.
I NEED to get my hands on FanGirl after reading Eleanor and Park!
I loved how deep You Don’t Know Me was, surprises like that are always good!
Fangirl is amazing. I am totally buying it as soon as it comes out 🙂
