Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
Today’s topic is a freebie and since I haven’t been participating in TTT for that long, I went to the mega spreadsheet and immediately saw 5 topics I wanted to do. I couldn’t decide, so I made Hubs choose for me. I’m going to go with to go with Top
Fifteen Ten Books I’d Want on a Desert Island.
The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin — I think we all know how I feel about Michelle and her words. And of course, my lovely boyfriend, Noah Shaw. I love this series with a sickness, but the swoons and fuckery are the strongest in this book.
Degrees of Wrong by Anna Scarlett — This book is my go-to when I’m in a slump. It’s so snarky and delicious. Also? Anna Scarlett is actually Anna Banks, so if you love her brand of snark, you’ll love this one too.
The Distance Between Us by Kasie West — This is my favorite Kasie book and if you haven’t read her stuff, I can’t recommend this one enough. I will never look at hot chocolate the same again.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins — Étienne St. Clair, enough said.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber –I don’t even know what to say about this one. I will mention the fact that it’s got a scene in it where I almost died from UST and not much even happens. And in case you’ve missed my flailing, this is my top book of the year.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas — Rhysand, enough said.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater — I love Ronan and Chainsaw.
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh –Renée’s words are so lovely and I sort of want to roll around in them. Shazi and Khalid are perfection and I loved everything about this story.
The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh — See above.
Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen — Mr. Darcy FTMFW
Night Owls by Jenn Bennett — AKA: The Anatomical Shape of a Heart, I just like this cover better. Two artsy people + a late night meeting + sparks upon sparks upon chemistry + more banter than I know what to do with = the best book. If you haven’t read this one yet, you really need to.
RoseBlood by AG Howard — You had me at Anita’s name on the cover, but I firmly believe this is the best thing she’s written so far.
Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone — Time traveling concert lover? Sign. Me. Up.
Ten by Gretchen McNeil — I think everyone needs to read Gretchen’s books and this one is perfect. No one writes the way Gretchen does.
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley — More artsy MCs in the most gorgeously lyrical prose you might ever read. I just reread this for the first time in a long time, and I could probably be easily persuaded to say if I could only read one book for the rest of my life, it would be this one.
So what about you? What is one book you’d want on a desert island?
