Top Ten Tuesday #57 - Best Books So Far This Year!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is -

Top Ten Books I've Read So Far This Year

I've noticed this year I'm not giving as many books my top rating, at the time of writing this post I've given 5 stars to just three books which is unheard of. On the other hand there are quite a few picture books with five stars because I'm not the one rating them! Here's my list of the best books I've read so far this year, there are 11 rather than 10 but as I started with 17 I think 11 is a good compromise :)

Poison

A Face Like Glass

Cracked

Peacemaker

Stolen Songbird

Days of the Deer

vN

Glaze

Jasmyn

Peter Nimble & His Fantastic Eyes

Ancillary Justice

  1. I finished Poison a few days ago and really enjoyed it. I'm desperate to read the second book now! I really want to read Stolen Songbird, because it looks amazing. :)

  2. Happy to see Jasmyn on your list! It's a beautiful cover and a lovely story. I'm looking forward to reading Glaze, hopefully soon!

  3. I'm glad you thought The Days of the Deer was good! I recently bought it in Spanish so I could practice reading Spanish. It's probably going to be a while before I read it though, because it definitely doesn't look like an easy read ;).

  10. I've been wanting to read Poison and the other Sarah Pinborough fairy tale adaptations for a while, but my library doesn't have them! BOO!! I might have to just purchase them myself, since I've heard so many good things, and fairy tale adaptations are just so fun anyway. Great list!

  12. Not only have I not read any of these, but I haven't even HEARD of them. POISON does sound good, though. I'll definitely be checking it out.

    Happy TTT!

  16. Stolen songbird made my list too! It's an AMAZING book! Also, I recently read Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge and thought it was amazing, so would be really intrigued to read more by her!
