For the sake of trying not to overlap with last week's top ten favourite heroines' post (many of which are in my favourite books), I'm talking about ten different books I'd loved in recent years.
In no particular order:
1) Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
Ladies and gentleman, THIS is how I like my love triangles. Such an incredible conclusion to one of my favourite trilogies.
Such beautiful, lyrical writing from Morgenstern! I wish the Night Circus was real so I could
live there visit... I'm eagerly anticipating whatever she writes next.
I'm not sure if any other author could have sold me on the magic system in this book. Brandon sure brings the chalkings and chalk defenses to life in a way that my geeky heart can't resist.
The scariest, most gut wrenching dystopian I've ever read. I still remember it vividly two years on.
5) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I love Blue and her Raven Boys, their relationships with one another, their shenanigans and all the Glendower mythlogy.
6) A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
I spend more time than I'd care to admit wondering what murders, back stabbings and betrayals are going to occur next in the unforgettable A Song of Ice and Fire Series.
When people ask me what my most favourite book is, this is my answer. I've forced many family members and close friends to read it. I love Ed and his friends and the mystery of the messenger. I love what he does and how he grows. I'm too scared to read The Book Thief as I don't want my love for I Am the Messenger to be eclipsed...
8) Everyday by David Leviathan
A's story fascinated and saddened me simultaneously. I love how different and out there and creative this book is.
9) The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsions
A funny and heart warming book about one man's unconventional mission to find a wife. Just the thing to read when you want a feel good story.
10) Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie
The book that reminded me why I love sci-fi. The hype around it is real and the awards are well deserved.
Tell me, what have been your most favourite books in the last three years?
