Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. They give us something to write our top 10 for, and we do! This week, Top 10 Best Books Read In 2014.
- The Selection by Kiera Cass. See, in the first one, America was one of the only main characters I’ve ever liked. And Maxon was cute, and the plot was amazing (even though I’m pretty sure Cass stole it from my fan-fiction…). It’s made that much better by the slow decline of the rest of the series
- The Dying of the Light by Derek Landy. The final book of the series. And it was everything I could have hoped for. Way more Val than I thought, and Darquesse, and Fletcher, and the Dead Men, and ahhh everything was just perfect 😀 There was death, and almost-death, and moments when I wanted to cry… What more could I need?
- Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Cath is essentially me, at my worst stage of fan-fiction addiction (oh, cool rhyme there :P). And don’t even get me started on my love for Levi, ohmyGod
- The Time Traveller’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Henry and Claire are one of my all time favourite couples. Ever. And I could understand the time travel (for the most part. The wedding…) which is really rare for me!
- Two Brothers by Ben Elton. The best historical fiction I’ve ever read. I need to get a review up one of these days, but I’m not sure there are enough words to show my love for this
- He’s After Me by Chris Higgins. This was a re-read, but Jem. Oh my goodness Jem. He’s probably my favourite fictional character ever of all time. I don’t just love him, I need him
- The Mystery of Mercy Close by Marian Keyes. I adore everything Marian Keyes, especially the Walsh family. And this was Helen, the best Walsh! She’s absolutely insane, and… Spunky. That’s the best word I can think to use for her
- Sadie by Jane Elliot. This made me feel so much. I hurt every time that pig of a man took a step towards her. She was 13. THIRTEEN.
- Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen. I really want one of those cool key necklaces! Plus Nate was so cute, I wanted to be his best friend
- Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela. It took me a long time, but it was worth it. I felt empowered to do… Something. I don’t know what, exactly, just something. He was such an amazing man
