Top Ten Tuesday

This week’s prompt for Top Ten Tuesday is “Top Ten Books You Would Classify As ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOKS from the past 3 years”. Which is a cruel one, I think, because argh, there are so many, and how can I remember when I read them all? But here’s a rough guess. These are, of course, books I’ve read in the last three years, not books published in the last three years, because I say so.

  1. The Goblin Emperor, Katherine Addison. C’mon, you called it.
  2. Among Others, Jo Walton. This might be a bit out of the range now, but I’ve reread it in the last three years!
  3. Cuckoo Song, Frances Hardinge. I might shut up about this, someday.
  4. Behind the Shock Machine, Gina Perry. So much research went into this, and it’s a fascinating view on a very famous experiment.
  5. The Universe Versus Alex Woods, Gavin Extence. Lots of issues that fascinate me, wrapped up in an emotional book.
  6. The Dragon Waiting, John M. Ford. Man, this took so much digging through layers of stuff. I loved it.
  7. Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened, Allie Brosh. Because <3.
  8. The Grand Sophy, Georgette Heyer. Heyer is awesome, okay.
  9. The Carpet Makers, Andreas Eschbach. I remember this blowing my mind!
  10. The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern. Gorgeous. ❤

Tahdah! Now I daren’t look at other people’s lists, you’ll make me want stuff…

  1. I’d already completed ten books PUBLISHED in the last 3-5 years which was a struggle, then I realised everyone else seemed to be going for READ in the last 3-5 years so I went back and changed a couple of books! Still not 100% happy but blogger is playing up today and I don’t have the energy to fight it to change another on the list!

  2. I just lent The Night Circus from the library! I’ve heard such incredible things, I’m really excited to read it. And I saw The Universe Versus Alex Woods there as well so I’ll probably check that one out next time.

    Great list!

  3. Hyperbole and a Half just tickled me silly. Such a great read, and with surprising depth too. I loved Among Others as well, and am mad at myself for buying My Real Children by Jo Walton about a year ago and still not getting around to it! I do need to read more by her. Great list!
