Ten Best Books of the Last Three Years

Ten Best Books of the Last Three Years

Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list the ten books that we’d class as our all time favorite books within the last 3-5 years. This could be pretty hard, or extremely easy, let’s see.

Turned out, it was easier than I thought. While scanning my reading list page where I jot down all the books I’ve read, certain books just leaped out at me, those books that were so so good that I just couldn’t put them down, that I remember even after quite some time has passed.

Top Ten Books That Would Make a Great Book Club Pick

This is my first 2015 top ten Tuesday post. I don’t know why, but I have been a but unmotivated to do tag/meme posts, but this one was so much fun, I saw this prompt and immediately had half a dozen book choices that I just had to share with you all.

I really like books that are very ambiguous and/or divisive in nature as book club choices. It’s no fun when everyone like or hates a particular book. A little heated (but respectful, of course 😉 ) argument about a book is always such fun.

Keeping that in mind, here are some books that I think would make some great book club choices.

Hooboy, where did the year go? I just don’t know where it flew by and now I have to answer tough questions such as which were the best books of the year, the best posts, and all that jazz.

In this post, I am going to talk about the top ten books that stayed lodged in my brains – either for the wonderful writing, or the world-building, or the plotting.

Surprisingly, most of my favorites fall in the literary fiction category.

Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list ten new to us authors I discovered in 2014.

I read a lot of new to me authors in 2014, some of them were genuinely new (as in début authors), but more often than not, they were well-established writers whose books I never read till now.

This is one book review where I’m not going to tell you very much about the book.

I dived into the book only knowing one thing – that it’s the first of a well-regarded dystopian trilogy by Margaret Atwood who is fast becoming one of my favorite writers.
