Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke and the Bookish
Let's see how close I can keep this list to ten.
Probably not though.
And I'm going to cheat (because it's my blog and I'll do what I want too) and put series as 'one' favorite.
My definition of favorite for these particular books will be books I've taken the time to read multiple times, or would read multiple times.
This book just makes me ridiculously happy (regardless of the ending).
Chris McCandless is my spirit animal and he was wild and free.
I envy him and admit to emulating some of his ideals for living and adventuring.
I've read TFioS at least once a year since it was released and I still bawl like a baby.
It is a story I will never get tired of reading.
This was the series that introduced me to Urban Fantasy, and it contains Jericho Barrons, so it holds a special place in my readers heart.
If you haven't read these books, do yourself a favor and pick them up over the summer.
They are so very, very wonderful.
The flipping of perspectives and the story telling in this book is incredible and I hope to be able to read it again soon.
This was such a great contemp.
The cover makes it look a little cheesy but the story is much more complex.
It's at the top of my favorite YA contemps list.
I hate this book.
I love this book.
I'm scared to read the other two.
Such wonderful storytelling.
This is without a doubt my favorite fey series.
Uglies was my very first dystopian series and I was hooked.
Hoverboards, secrets, The Wild, love.
This will always remain a favorite.
This was probably one of my first fantasy series (other than like Lord of the Rings).
A fantasy that takes place in a boarding school, the descriptions, it's just wonderful.
My Blood Approves was my first indie book I bought on my Kindle.
I'd also had just made a twitter account around the same time I read this series so Amanda Hocking was the first author I'd ever talked to via social media and she was always so sweet to me, answered my questions, let me quote her in my blog, encouraged my writing, and sent me her novella to review very early because she knew how much I enjoyed the series (though she also knew I thoroughly disapproved at how she ended the story. I picked the other boy in the love triangle). It was just a great and encouraging experience.
So there ya have it. I was able to keep the list at 12 which is pretty good considering this list could've been much MUCH longer.
Any of these make your list?
