Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly linkup hosted by The Broke And The Bookish!
Gah, how do I only pick 10 books that I loved from this year? I feel like I'm going to be cheating. This year has been a great reading year, with lots of awesome reads. Sure, there were duds, but I didn't realize how many 4 and 5 unicorn reads where on my Goodreads shelf. So, here we go...
"A Mad, Wicked Folly" by Sharon Briggs Waller: Nude painting, woman's rights and Victorian love. Need I say more?
"All The Truth That's In Me" by Julie Berry: It's a historical mystery involving a cut out tongue and an interesting writing style!
"Cruel Beauty" by Rosamund Hodge: It's a dark, twisted "Beauty and the Beast" retelling. What more could you want from a book?
"Girl Defective" by Simmone Howell: Australia, music and super kitchy characters. I think this might have been my favorite this year?
"In A Handful Of Dust" by Mindy McGinnis: It's the sequel to "Not A Drop To Drink" and it's just as dark, gritty and amazing as the first one!
"Of Metal And Wishes" by Sarah Fine: I will read anything that Fine writes, but the fact that this is a "Phantom of the Opera" retelling and I love it!
"Prisoner Of Night And Fog" by Anne Blankman: This book gives a different look at World War Two. The main character is Hitler's unofficial niece and the facts are bone chilling.
"Heir Of Fire" by Sarah J. Maas: I love this series and I'll love it till it ends. Some of the newest characters are some of my favorites.
"The Cure For Dreaming" by Cat Winters: Another book about woman's rights at the turn of the century, but this one adds hypnotism and vampires into the mix!
"Winterspell" by Claire Legrand: It's a slightly demented, creepy, fantastical retelling of "The Nutcracker"!
"Graffiti Moon" by Cath Crowley: This book is all about street art and coming of age and I adore both of those things.
"Salvage" by Alexandra Duncan: It's a Sci-Fi standalone and it's pretty darn amazing!
Well there's my list! What's on yours? I wanna know. Leave your link below or tell me in the comments!
