This week’s TTT is Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year. As of the time I’m writing this post (Sunday afternoon), I have read 36 books so far this year. For some, that’s not a lot, for others, that probably sounds like a ton of books in less than 6 months. 10 books would be almost a third of the ones I’ve read this year, but most of what I read has been good. Let’s see what I come up with! Links are provided for all books I have reviewed thus far.
(Note: These are in no particular order except that they have been my 10 favorites thus far.)
Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. I did reread The Shining at the beginning of the year, and considered adding it to this list, but figured that wasn’t fair because I had read it before. I LOVED this sequel to that book, didn’t disappoint in the least! (A review is in the future… with an added twist 🙂 )
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I love the time period this book takes place in, and Fitzgerald really captures the feeling of it.
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. Truth be told, I think the narrator of the audiobook, Jeff Woodman, is what really made this book great for me.
Dark Lover by J.R. Ward. I loved the twists to the typical paranormal stereotypes, but also all the manly men!
Dragon’s Keep by Janet Lee Carey. This book surprised me, and proved that sometimes you really can pick up an obscure book you’ve never heard of before and it still be good!
Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I enjoyed the trilogy as whole, but the first book was definitely my favorite I think. (Review coming soon!)
What are your favorite books so far this year?
