Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Books of the Last Decade

This is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week, there’s a theme and you choose ten books that fit it. Check out upcoming topics here.


This week’s topic is devoted to our favorite books of the last ten years–one book per year. I seriously struggled with this one because there were a couple of years I didn’t feel super strongly about anything that I’ve read that was released that year, but a few years were when some of my all-time favorite books released, and choosing between them honestly hurt a little.

I’m pretty sure I read almost all of these after the year they were released because I don’t really read too many new releases most years.

In order from newest to oldest…

  1. I’m super excited to read If We Were Villains because I’m a big fan of the dark academia aesthetic and that’s basically the whole concept behind the novel I think haha. I absolutely LOVE Through The Woods — it’s probably my favorite graphic novel at the moment. ❤

    1. Yes, it is! If you enjoy that, and Shakespeare/theatre, you’ll probably really like it 🙂 Through the Woods is so gorgeous, isn’t it? It’s probably my favorite, too ❤

    1. I feel like we all need “So many books, so little time” on t-shirts or something haha. It’s great having so many options, but also so intimidating (at least for me).

    1. It really is ❤ I think if I had to pick just one favorite book cover ever, I would choose it. I figured that one would make it on a lot of lists this week haha.
