Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week’s theme is “Ten Of The Best Books I’ve Read Recently”. I’ve picked the ten best books I’ve read over the last six months, so in no particular order…
The Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy
I FINALLY got around to reading this series this year, and I’m not sure why I waited so long – I loved the writing, the world building and the characters. Daughter of Smoke and Bone had me hooked pretty much straight away, so I couldn’t wait to read the rest of the series, and although very different, I really enjoyed all three.
Queen of Shadows
There hasn’t been a book in the series I haven’t loved yet, and each book manages to feel more epic than the last. Queen of Shadows meant more Manon and the Thirteen which I loved, plus Lysandra quickly became a new favourite character too.
Fool’s Quest was amazing – it had an extra something I felt was missing in the previous book. The writing, the characters, the plot, everything about this book worked for me, and I’m gutted there’s such a long wait before the next book.
Picking up a Maria V. Snyder book always feels like meeting up with old friends, and Night Study was no different -I loved returning to characters we already know and love, and the story was addictive, so it was definitely one of the best books I’ve read recently.
The Raven Boys/The Dream Thieves/Blue Lily, Lily Blue
I finally gave in and started The Raven Boys, mostly because I knew how much Micheline loved it, and it did not disappoint! I loved the books SO much more than I thought I would, and I’ve already preordered The Raven King, because I can’t wait to see how it ends.
