Top Ten Tuesday is hosted weekly by the lovely ladies at The Broke and The Bookish.
This week's topic also known as ten of my favorite books. Alphabetical by author.
Gripping, emotional, unputdownable: all of these apply to this amazing YA contemporary about a girl who must choose the course of her life.
Mythology in the modern world: a little tragic, a little philosophical, and a lot fascinating, American Gods is surprisingly absorbing, filled with many different stories that flow together to form one novel.
The Apocalypse is only a minor hindrance for lovable rogue angel Mercury and reporter Christine Temetri, who must take on the angelic bureaucracy to save the world in this brilliant and witty comedy.
Funny and intense, this story of a con artist who gets further into politics than he bargained for is one of my personal favorites.
No sparkling here – the vampires in Sunshine are deadly, and no one escapes them – no one until Sunshine, that is. As she discovers her particular abilities, Sunshine stumbles into a mission to wipe out a master vampire, in a book I've read so many times it's near to falling apart.
Karen Marie Moning
Fever is the most addictive series I've ever seen, with a cast of dark and fascinating characters and a fast-paced, compelling plot. A must-read for anyone who wants to be swept up in a book.
This gripping dystopian story has society divided into factions. Fast-paced and thrilling, Divergent is impossible to put down.
Patrick Rothfuss weaves subtle humor into this complex and brilliant fantasy. With spectacular characters and a uniquely scientific brand of magic, The Name of the Wind is a major hit.
It's Harry Potter. Need I say more?
With beautiful writing, Maggie Stiefvater creates a unique werewolf story and fascinating characters with depth.
