Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Really Love and Feel I Need to Re-Read Soon

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I Really Love and Feel I Need to Re-Read Soon.

I read a lot of books each year, and while there are some books I always re-read at least once a year there are others which I haven’t picked up in ages. Looking through my bookshelves and my Goodreads read list I discovered a lot of series which I loved the first time I read them but which I haven’t picked up since. These are probably my top ten favourite series that I haven’t read in over a year which are now high on my re-reads list.

Once, only her own life hung in the balance…

When Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. She survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia.

Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands—and protect her relationship with Valek. Suddenly, though, dissent is rising. And Valek’s job – and his life – are in danger.

As Yelena tries to uncover her enemies, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. And now she must find a way to keep not only herself but all that she holds dear alive.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday was definitely the hardest for me. I have read so many amazing books that I have truly loved this year that picking only ten was a real challenge. Some of my favourite series have ended on a real high note, Winter from the Lunar Chronicles, I have started new series which I cannot wait to continue, The Mine Order from the Bone Season series, and I have read some stand-alone novels which exceeded my highest expectations, Rainbow Rowell’s Carry On. Eventually I managed to narrow down my list but it was a close call on some of them.
