Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books Since Blogging


The top ten prompt today from The Broke and the Bookish is to list those books that have been our favorites since blogging. Sheesh! Are you kidding me? That's  A LOT of books for me! So, I've looked over my Top Ten book lists of each year that I've been blogging and forced myself to pick two books from each year. Hard to do. I wanted to make categories and list all sorts of books, but I'll keep it to the two per year, which still puts me over ten!

Favorite Books Since Blogging (2007)

2007: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy

2008: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

2009: The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski and Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford

2010: Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson and Unwind by Neal Shusterman

2011: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

2012 (so far): Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta and The Hollow City by Dan Wells

Ah, I SO MUCH wish I could list more!

Have you read any of these? Did they make it to your favorite lists too?

  3. I can't even begin to imagine narrowing down 10 books out of six years! I had difficulty with just shy of two years! Great list though! I'm glad to see another Neal Shusterman fan! I'm going to be giving away a signed copies of UnWholly and The Night Circus on my blog very soon, so pay attention! :)

  5. I really need to read The Book Thief. I think I'm intimidated by its size and how good it's supposed to be! My husband just finished Unwind and really liked it.

  8. Wow, first congrats for blogging so long! :) I've read at least one on almost every year of your list (or want to read!). I definitely agree on The Book Thief, the only reason I didn't add it was because it's been on several other lists recently lol.

    1. Jenn: The Book Thief almost always ends up on my lists... it pretty much fulfills all the categories for me.

  10. I like how you've chosen books from different years of reading - five years must be hard to narrow down! I really enjoyed The Book Thief, although I read the end of it while waiting for a train and was trying to hide the fact I was crying!

    1. Smallgirl: It was very hard to narrow down. Argh!

  11. Lovely way to arrange this. I started book blogging around the same time as you, and I may go back and do this at some point. I have done top 10 posts at the end of the year every year, but it would be particularly interesting to see which ones have held up (at least in my memory) over time.

    1. Jessica: It was an interesting little exercise for sure. You should definitely try it.

  12. Most TTT I've been reading are on blogs that haven't been blogging for long so the list wasn't THAT hard. I did wonder what you'd do. I like what you narrowed it down to...well, except for Warbreaker. ;)

  13. Lots of good looking books on there. The ones I have read I agree and the ones that I haven't I must get to soon!

  14. You know I love The Book Thief, but I didn't know The Forsyte Saga was one of your favorites! That's been on my list for a long time and I may have to read it sooner.
