Top Ten Tuesday: Top ten books I have read so far this year

Today's Top Ten Tuesday is the top ten books I have read so far this year. I have read a lot of great books this year and have read a lot of book in general. June marks the half-way point for 2014 and I am quiet pleased with my reading so far for this year. My list is in no particular order.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish


1. Elanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell This book was so sweet and filled me with huge amounts of nostalgia. I reviewed it here.

2. I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak This book was suspenseful and very substantial, Zusak is a really great writer. I reviewed this novel  here.

3. Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare I read all three book of the Infernal Devices trilogy back-to-back and loved them all, but the final book in the trilogy was my favorite. This is such a great trilogy and Clockwork Princess was a great conclusion to the trilogy.


4. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas  I read this back in March and throughly enjoyed it, as well as the sequel and prequel. I am eagerly awaiting the third novel's release in September. This series has got me really excited, which hasn't happened with a series in a long time. My review is  here.

5. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson I read this book for a paper I had to write in my children's literature class. I just picked this book up on a whim because it fit the category of book I needed, and was so impressed by it. The writing style is so unique.

6. Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan I just read this book last month, and really loved it. Levithan is such a heartfelt writer and his books are so powerful and funny. My review is here.


7. Hopless by Colleen Hoover This book was the biggest surprise for me this year, I was not expecting to like it as much as I did. My review is here.

8. Obsidian by Jenifer L. Armount This is the first book in the Lux series, which is by far the most addicting series I have read this year. I have read the first three books, and I am planning on reading the fourth book before the final book's release in August. My review for the first two books is here.

9. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde This is my favorite classic I have read so far this year. I love Oscar Wilde and I think he is brilliant. My in-depth review is here.

10. How They Met and Other Stories by David Levithan This is a collection of short stories about the start of new relationships or self discovery. I really enjoyed everyone one of these stories and loved the diversity of couples that was in this collection.


  1. Nice picks. The only one I have read is Obsidian and I really enjoyed that one, had a lot of similarities to Twilight but I loved it. Can't wait to continue that series, need to get to book three. Hopeless is one I really want to read, I love Colleen Hoover's books!

    1. I thought the same thing when reading Obsidian... At first I was worried it was going to be too similar but then the plot started to develop more. I am eager to read more of Colleen Hoover's books, I really enjoyed Hopeless!
