Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is top ten books I’ve read this year, looking back, I haven’t read many books this year! So I’ll share the ones most worth talking about.

1-5 A Song of Ice and Fire – George R.R. Martin – these beasts took me about 3 months but they were the most amazing things ever! (Except book four but no series is ever perfect).

6. Shopaholic to the Stars – Sophie Kinsella – I was actually a bit disappointed with this one but I’ve been waiting for it for 4 years, so it deserves a mention.

7. The Rosie Project – Graeme Simsion – One of the best books I have ever read. I’m getting the sequel for Christmas.

8. The Historian – Elizabeth Kostova – At 700 pages it’s a long read but it’s fascinating, all about Vlad the Impaler.

9. This is Shyness – Leanne Hall – I’ve just finished reviewing it and it was one of the most original stories I’ve ever read. (You can find my review here)

10. The Philosopher’s Stone – J.K. Rowling – Technically not a new book, I re-read it for the one hundredth (and something) time when I was stressed about something. I find re-reading my favourites very therapeutic, don’t you?

That’s my list! I think I need to read more new books next year – that can be my resolution! How about you? What have you read? Link up below!

  1. Enjoyed your list! I read The Historian a few years ago and loved it! I am also planning to finally give the Rosie Project a go as i hear good things about it everywhere I look! And I know what you mean about the therapeutic value of re-reads – I went back to a much loved book of my youth, re-reading Le Grand Meaulnes during the summer, – it was a way to make me feel that I wasn’t ageing quite as fast as I know that I actually am!

  2. So, I also started a ‘Top Ten Tuesday” thingie on my own blog. I hope I can pull it off 🙂

    I have read quiet a number of books this year but haven’t gotten to reviewing them. I re-read some old ones too…One of them was Harry Porter and the Chamber of Secrets. I know many people don’t like the second book but its one of my faves especially the movie. Gideroy Lockhart just kills me lol
