Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

This weeks prompt is popular books that lived up to the hype.  I haven't read many new releases lately, so I am going to pick books that I know are or have been popular in the online book community.

1) Caraval by Stephanie Garber

This book was one that I didn't think I would love as much as I did.  It really has it all: magic, romance, intrigue, and a stellar plotline.  I currently have the sequel, Legendary, in my possession and cannot wait to read it!

2) The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows

Holy Cliffhanger! I loved this book, the world, the magic, the romance.  It was all great, but the ending was what did me in, I have to know what happens next.

3) The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

This one is an oldie but a goodie.  I know that many people adore this book, myself being amongst them.  This is actually one of the books that helped foster my love of reading. I have read this book more times than I can count and yet it never gets old, and for that, I have put it on this list.

4) City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

I love all of Cassandra Clare's books, and while this isn't my favorite of her books, it has a special place in my heart as it was one of the first Fantasy books I read, and was the book responsible for getting me into the genre.

5) Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

Of all Cassandra Clare's books, the Infernal Devices series is by far my favorite.  The characters and the storyline were amazing.  And it was in a time period I love!

6) The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan 

I know that this series is geared toward younger readers, however, I love these well into adulthood.  I love Riordan's style of writing and the way he weaves in myths without changing or making up myths.

  1. What a great list! I totally agree with the Infernal Devices. It's my favorite book by her that I've ever read.
