Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where I’ll post my top ten book choices (in no particular order) based on certain themes. If you would also like to participate, find out the rules by clicking here.
This week’s theme is “Pick Your Own Topic,” so I’ve decided to choose “Top Ten Books I Would Reread.”
1. Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs: If you enjoy strong female characters, this book is a MUST read. Unfortunately, not many people know about Patricia Briggs, because her books fall under “adult fiction” instead of YA. But I haven’t read a fantasy fiction author who has been able to surpass her. Read these. It’s worth it.
2. The Immortals Series by Tamora Pierce: What? A girl who can talk to animals? And it doesn’t feel like a cliche? For fantasy fiction, it doesn’t get much better than that.
3. The Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater: This series is for any reader who loves a good shapeshifter x human romance.
4. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: A classic at its best. Oh Mr. Darcy!
5. The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare: If you’ve seen the movie and haven’t read the first book yet, then you’ve made a horrible decision. Let’s rectify this mistake by reading the rest of this series before it’s too late. Okay? You’re welcome. ☺
6. Percy Jackson & the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan: These books might be for a little younger audience, but they’re still enjoyable reads.
7. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne: I don’t care how many people despise this book; it will always be one of my favorite classics.
8. The Hush, Hush Saga by Becca Fitzpatrick: A little cliche with the whole fallen angel, bad boy x human relationship, but they’re still good reads.
9. Before I Die by Jenny Downham: Judge this book by the title please! If you don’t like sad endings, then DON’T read it.
10. Darkest Powers Trilogy by Kelley Armstrong: This series introduces multiple types of supernaturals without it seeming to be too much. Though it may seem like a typical fantasy novel, once you realize the story’s setting, you’ll know that it’s not.
As you can see, I adore a good fantasy novel- though I do read many types of other fiction genres. ☺
