Top Ten Tuesday 1

10.

 Into the Still Blue (Under the Never Sky, #3)

This series started out pretty poor in my opinion but I decided to stick with it and each book was better than the last. In this final book I was happy with the way everything ended and where the characters were in the end. There was a lot of growth during the series and this book brought the characters to the point I felt they needed to be at.

 Fangirl

I was highly impressed with this book because I really didn’t like a previous Rainbow Rowell book that I read. I was afraid to try this author for the second time but I really enjoyed this book because it was a good new adult novel for people who want a storyline instead of just sex. Although I do wish it had some more steam I’m still happy with where this novel headed and I will be trying more Rowell.

8.

 Firelight (Darkest London, #1)

I was highly impressed with this novel. I was expecting a simple historical romance with some magic but this novel is so much more than that. I did love the romance as well as the steampunk elements mixed with magic and myth. This is certainly a book to read because it is a mix of everything and would be a good choice for anyone.

7.

 Open Road Summer

This stared as a cute contemporary romance for me but the end of the book blew me away. I really loved how real the relationship was and several ending quotes made this book a 5 star read for me. I can’t wait to read more by this author in 2016.

6.

 The School for Good and Evil (The School for Good and Evil, #1)

I do not read many middle grade books but I picked this one up because I loved the idea of the plot. I ended up being really impressed with this because it just worked completely for me. It also doesn’t truly read like a middle grade novel, the author did a great job starting off this series.

5.

 The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

I enjoyed the entire series of Percy Jackson but this was my favorite. I felt that the finale of this series was the best because all of the kids were finally teenagers and they were making better decisions and they were more relatable to me. I wish the series continued into their older teen years but I guess I will have to make due with seeing them in the spin-off series.

4.

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3)

I read this entire series this year and while each book has something special to offer I’m conflicted on which one is my favorite. While I thought there were a few issues with Heir of Fire while I was reading it and I ended up giving it 4.5 stars instead of the full 5, I feel now that it might be my favorite. This is because this is where everyone stands up and becomes who they were meant to be. Most people don’t like the addition of all the new characters, saying they are copies of the previous men but I don’t believe that. I also like the path that was taken in this book and I all out love Rowan so I enjoy his journey in this book.

3.

Unhinged (Splintered, #2)

With the first book I was completely taken with Morpheus. This book cemented him as an all out book boyfriend. I have to have him. He is witty, dark, powerful, and emotional. His lines in this book could all be sitting on this page as favorite quotes from a book. I love everything he says and the way he phrases it. The emotions that are brought about in this book take this book to a new level. It is truly a love triangle worth reading even though I can hardly tell you who the other guy even is because he doesn’t matter to me. From Morpheus’s lies to his dark magic I will take it all.

2.

Allegiant (Divergent, #3)

This book finally pulled the series together for me. I liked the first two books but I wasn’t overly impressed with them. I was waiting for that moment where you know you have fallen completely in love. Usually the last book in a dystopian series is a bit of a let down but not this one! I loved where this story went and yes I do love the ending because when you think about it it was where the story should have went all along. Roth finally impressed me with this book, weird I know, but true.

1.

Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4)

This book had it all in my opinion. It was emotional, heartbreaking, raw and beautiful. I loved Rose’s progress in this book and felt she grew up in this book to the character I always knew she could be. This is my favorite in the series. I still have to read the final book but I have a feeling it isn’t going to get any better than this. All of the other VA books up until now have been good-great but this one finally blew me away and made me fall in love.

    LOVE MORPHEUS. And I loved HoF the best too, as it is where Aelin in a way finds herself and accepts herself. Something I think we can all relate too! Also…well, Rowan. ?
