Well this weeks Top Ten Tuesday is all about my favourite books I’ve read since I’ve been blogging. Now because got some reviews on this blog, that come from its original incarnation as a plain old personal blog, I’ve decided to cut off at ‘official’ start to the blog. I’ve also decided to only include a single book from any series, and not to include any re-reads form books I read prior to blogging.
|The Ask and The Answer by Patrick Ness
One of my favourite series of all time never mind since I started blogging, and this one is my favourite of the series, I loved the way Ness played with the concepts of good and evil and how far people can be pushed to protect those they love and what they believe in.
|Nation by Terry Pratchett
Probably my favourite of Pterry’s books. Loved the story, the characters, and that it was full of that most dangerous thing of all, it made you think!
|The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
“Feel all the things.” ’nuff said…
|Tomorrow, When the War Began
Pushing Chaos Walking for my favourite series, The Tomorrow Series was a joy to both read and listen to during the early days of this blog, and Tomorrow, When the War Began is the book that grabbed hod and dragged me in to Ellie’s world.
|The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
A near perfect book, by the master. One of the first books I followed through pre-publication buzz to the excitement of getting hold of a copy.
If you enjoyed reading it yourself, but haven’t yet had the pleasure of listening to the audio book narrated by Neil himself, then you are really missing out!
|The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I almost never picked this series up, because I hand the wrong idea about what it was about, but eventually I did, and enjoyed the ride right alongside the rest of the book blogging world with books two and three.
|The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
Read this one, during my first read-a-thon. Magical book.
|Zoe’s Tale by John Scalzi
A series I discovered solely down to book blogging. I loved all the books in the Old Man’s War series, but Zoe’s Tale just nick’s it as my favourite.
|Looking for Alaska by John Green
A second book my John Green on this list, and as he’s an author I would never have discovered if it wasn’t for blogging, I think that it’s only right.
|Before I Die by Jenny Downham
Yes I was in tears at the end, alright?
