Top Ten Tuesdays are a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. The topic of November 24, 2015 is a Thanksgiving themed Freebie. My Thanksgiving-related Freebie is top ten books/series I’m grateful I read this year.
Here’s the list:
1. The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
By now, I think that I have established the fact that I am a huge fan of the Throne of Glass series. The series was amazing and I read all five books over the fall.
2. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
An Ember in the Ashes was an exciting fantasy read with dystopia elements. The writing was good and the characters were also compelling.
3. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I read The Mortal Instruments series in the spring through summer and I loved all of the books. The world building, characters, and plot were all amazing.
4. The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
I read The Inheritance Cycle over the summer and it was terrific high fantasy quintet that reminded me of Lord of the Rings.
5. Winterspell by Claire Legrand
This dark fantasy retelling of the nutcracker had sat on my TBR for well over two months, but it was worth the wait. I highly enjoyed the book.
6. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
After reading the prologue of the first book of the Infernal Devices trilogy, I was not sure if I would read it. But I had really enjoyed The Mortal Instruments, so I decided to give it a try and liked it.
7. The Young Elites by Marie Lu
I’m not sure where I first heard about this book: other book bloggers or my Barnes & Nobles receipt (both give fantastic book recommendations!) After trying and failing to read Legend, I thought that I would try to read another book of Marie Lu’s, so I picked up The Young Elites and enjoyed it overall.
8. The Last Ever After by Soman Chainani
I read the last book of The School for Good and Evil trilogy over the summer and liked it. The author managed to carry all of the suspense and surprise twists all the way to the end of the trilogy, while continuing to develop the characters.
9. Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs
Library of Souls, the last book of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children trilogy, came out this fall and I read it pretty quickly. I thought that the book definitely kept a much faster pace than The Hollow City, and matched my enjoyment of the first book.
10. Escape from Mr. Lemencello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein
I read this book in the spring and liked it. This book incorporated mystery, libraries, puzzles, and riddles into one intriguing novel, which made it a delight to read.
