I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's prompt is:
Top Ten Books I Would Classify As My ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOKS From the Past Three Years
If I were to give you a list of all time favorite books that I've ever read, most of that list would be comprised of books I read more than three years ago, either due to nostalgia (The Giver) or due to their influence on my life over the years (Life of Pi, The Book Thief). So this was fun to think of my more recent favorites. All links go to my reviews. Are any of your favorite books on this list??
I'll be preaching this book for years to come. I've never read such a captivating look into relationships.
9. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Reading this book felt like reading a biography about myself. I felt really, personally attached to every aspect of this novel, and it moved me an unusual amount.
8. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
What a beautiful book. Really, this book is powerful, and simple, and just really, really beautifully written.
7. This is Not Your City by Caitlin Horrocks
This book of short stories stayed with me and became a part of my heart. Do you ever feel that way? I just feel like a part of my soul is comprised of these stories.
6. The Fault in Our Stars by John Greene
Say what you will about the overabundance of wit, but I found this book to be the most emotional book I've read in the past three years. I felt everything: from joy to pain to contentment to heartbreak to hilarity. Plus, this is the only book to have made me cry in the past three years.
5. The Seven Realms Series by Cinda Williams Chima
This series might be my favorite complete series I've read within the past three years. I blew through the whole thing, and loved every minute. Hats off to you, Ms. Chima.
4. Troubled Waters by Sharon Shinn
It's rare for me to read a book and think that the protagonist's personality is based on myself. Zoe and I are basically the same person, living in different dimensions. Also, this book started my love affair with Sharon Shinn, so there's that.
3. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
This book sold me on one of my favorite new series to come out within the past three years. I'm now a huge Celaena fan, and am trying my hardest to convert everyone around me.
2. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
Goodness, this book was hugely entertaining, all while tackling some really serious subjects. It would be the perfect book club book. I had a blast reading it.
1. The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. by Adelle Waldman
I loved this book, largely because it infuriated me. It makes you think, it makes you smarter, and it urges you to be better than Nathaniel. Definitely worth its spot on this list.
If you were to make a list of your all time favorite books from the past three years, what would they be?
