When I saw this topic on The Broke and the Bookish website where this meme is hosted, I honestly didn't know what to think. How could I pick just ten! for the past three years! Ah!
But here we are, I actually did it <3
Here's my Top Ten Books I Would Classify As All Time Favourite From The Past 3 Years
This book is my go to. It is my official, 'You must read this book if you want to be in my life'. I read this on Mara's recommendation and man...I am so happy I took her up on this one.
This book made me laugh at the subtle jokes, it made me gush over the cute romantic moments with Liesel and Rudy, it made me cry at nearly everything else, and when I finish reading it I honestly felt like one of my friends said that they were going to leave forever. It is one of the few books that I'd consider re-reading, and feeling all that pain again because it was worth it.
I still get teary eyed even mentioning it. Every single one of the characters is like family, and Max....MAAAAAX <3<3<3
This is the highest recommended book that I own. If you could read only one book, this book will teach you about empathy and about human pain, but the good and evil that it contains also.
You might be shocked, yes, but I have only just finished the Harry Potter Series. I can't believe it took me so long to get into, but I can see why so many people are still so upset over it ending and resorting to all these other methods of still feeling connected to it.
Out of all the books, Deathly Hallows is my favourite because of how dark and gruesome it is compared to the rest. The entire time I was reading it I was thinking, 'Oh man...you can actually feel the gloom just emanating from the chapters'
And yes - I ship Romione. They are so crazily cute together that I just want to screech like an attacked Owl.
Oh Fangirl. No other book has hit me so hard before. Cath is amazingly vulnerable, Levi is such a hottie Mchotterson who is funny and sweet and caring, and even though I didn't really care for the FanFic moments in it, I could understand it for what it's worth.
Whenever my friends want a cute, fun, and really adorable relationship and story, this book is what you need in your life.
Levi and Cath rank as one of my highest OTPs, right next to Bellarke/CaptainSwan/Richonne.
I was really surprised with this book. From the front, it was interesting but I was honestly expecting it to be one of those cheesy, supernatural, YA novels that line the shelves at bookstores that are horrendously written and lack any character development.
But that's where I was wrong! This book has really showed me what it means to judge others without knowing them or their circumstances, what it means to have a love in your friend before you turn lovers, and pushing through the trials that you face one at a time.
Being brave doesn't always mean being strong, just being brave enough to fight that fear for long enough.
This is a book that I KNOW a lot of people don't know. It was recommended to me by my Uncle, who is a mormon like me. This novel was written by a mormon, and there is a large amount of mormon lingo contained within. The story follows the story of a family in the Pre-Existence, the world before this world was. They struggle to make their decision to come down to Earth, and struggle with the war that is waged in Heaven.
I love this entire series, and the family relationships <3 They're so cute, and so sassy, and I loved how they even included certain aspects of what Satan might be like. He isn't this hot poker, evil, maniacal laughter, with red shiny horns type of image we imagine. He'll appear as everything you have ever wanted or desired.
EEELEAAANOR AND PAAAAARK! <3<3<3
OTP to the max. It's such a simple book when I really think about it, but it's perfect in all the right ways. It's a quick read, but it's one that stays with you for quite a while after you finish reading it (And you'll know it when you read it)
It's just so....ugh....*Swoon*
I'm sure you're starting to notice a recurring theme in my favourite novels now...
Sad, had a glint of romance in it, and it stabs you in the feels and makes you depressed for like a week.
This book is so beautiful - the artwork, the illustrations, the blurb, the cover. All of it is just so enchanting and for a story that wants to rip out your soul and crush it beneath the weight of your tears.
YES YES I KNOW I COMPLAIN ABOUT THE HUNGER GAMES A LOT STOP GIVING ME DRAMA OVER IT GOSH.
I love Hunger Games. The First Novel, not the rest!
The first book in the series was my absolute favourite. The initial hunger games, dealing with the actual arena, meeting Katniss and dealing with the type of world.
I love the whole world and what it was, but after that it really bothered me.
BUT I STILL LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES <3
Once again...another sad book that just crushes your soul. I didn't even realise how much I was falling in love with this book until near the end, where I just burst into tears because I could relate to Hannah and what she went through. I could understand the pain and loneliness. I could understand the anger and sadness.
It's a true masterpiece, and deals with the topic gently but seriously.
FINALLY A CUTE LOVE STORY IN WHICH NOBODY DIES AND NOBODY GET HURTS AND IT'S JUST SO CUTE! *Heart-eyes*
I normally don't do a lot of romance, because it's normally super cliche and trope-filled and just ew. But this book is something totally different. It takes the genre and flips it and takes all the best parts of it, and uniquely makes it hilarious but super cute at the same time <3
It makes my heart flutter so!
