Lists · Readathon

10 books in 10 years

One of the Challenges is to make a list of recommendations. One for every year the readathon exists. It wasn’t easy, but I did it.

And I can tell you, I loved every one of these books!

2007 – Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

I read this years and years ago and I honestly can’t remember that much of it. Only that I loved it.

2008 – The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

I probably don’t need to tell you anything about this book. I reread it three or four times now and I still love it.

2009 – The Help by Kathryn Stockett

This is a really powerful story that I’m quite glad I read.

2010 – Spider’s Bite by Jennifer Estep

This is everything I wanted from a book. #stabby. Assassins. Magic.

2011 – The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

This was absolutely amazing! I didn’t think I would love it, but I adore it. The premise is … I mean … carnivorous horses! The Capaill Uisce.

2012 – The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

MAggie Stiefvater is Queen, she deserves two places on this list. I adore every character in The Raven Boys. Every. Single. One!

2013 – Vicious by V.E. Schwab

V. E. Schwab is the best at writing morally grey characters and this book was pure perfectiona nd why, oh why, have I waited soo Long to read this.

2014 – Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas

This book is probably my favourite in the Throne of Glass Series. I know a lot of People don’t like it that much. But the character development Celaena goes through? It hit Close to home and was so emotional for me to read.

2015 – George by Alex Gino

Again, a really powerful Story. And middle grade as well. Which makes it even more important. We need more stories like this. Handling important topics with so much care and giving hope. Because this is a hopeful and very cute story.

2016 – Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

I read this book maybe a week or two ago and holy cow! This was awesome. So dark, so good.

2017 – Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

I am so glad I got this in a FairyLoot Box. I probably wouldn’t have read this otherwise. At least not for a while. But it was good, really good. What I loved most about this book was the world. Gomorrah is amazingly dark.
