Top Ten Books I'm Thankful For

Happy almost Thanksgiving, everyone! I haven't blogged in a longggggg time, and I thought what better way to make my comeback than to appreciate the very reason I began blogging. Some of these books made the list because they had a major impact on my life. Others made the list because they're just good books.

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen - I'm obsessed with everything Sarah Dessen writes, but this is still probably my all-time favorite of her work.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - This is probably such a cliche pick, but it really is an amazing series. And with the release of the Mockingjay Part 2 movie (which I've already seen twice) I'm all up in my feelings about this series. Also, this is the book that got me into book blogging in the first place, so it certainly belongs on this list!

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins - I read this really recently, and it brought me out of my "slump." I hadn't read a book in months because college kind of sucks that desire away from me, but Isla revived me.

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead - This book series will forever be my number one, my ride or die. It is my favorite book series of all time, and it got me through a particularly rough time in my life. I have no words to accurately describe how thankful I am for these books.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver - I love this series so freaking much, but the first one is definitely my favorite. So many emotions. Lauren Oliver is just an incredible author and she had a lot of impact on my writing style.

Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl - I love this series, and it's really hard to describe my attachment to this series. I started reading it when only the first book was available, and each time a new book was released, I was at a vastly different point in my life. It's kinda like this series went on a journey with me. That's probably weird. Anyway, the third installment is my favorite book in the series!

Don't Let Me Go by J.H. Trumble - I will promote this book until the day I die. It was a truly amazing reading experience for me that brought me out of my comfort zone. J.H. Trumble is amazing, and I'm so glad I happened upon this book and discovered her. 

Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare - I just love love love this series, and I will fangirl about it for the rest of my life. The final book is my favorite and made me feel so many emotions that I was reeling for days after I finished it. 

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld - This is one of those series that I've been in love with since, like, sixth grade, and every time I revisit it, I fall in love with it again. I loved this series before I ever really loved reading. 

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry - I am obsessed with Katie McGarry. I will read anything she ever writes. She is amazing, and this book is amazing. I have forced multiple friends to read this because I just love it so much! 

What books are you thankful for? 


  1. Delirium was a great start, but I think got lost along the way in the series. Awesome Post! Have a Happy Thanksgiving! Here's my Top Ten Tuesday

  2. I really, really enjoyed the couple of Sarah Dessen's novels I've read so far, and This Lullaby is actually one of my favorites, along with Just Listen and The Truth About Forever. Her novels made me addicted to Contemporaries. Ooh, I still didn't have the chance to watch the new Hunger Games movie and I'M SO MAD ABOUT IT! I'll have the chance to watch it on Thursday, but that feels like it's AGES AWAY!
    I'm so thankful for VA and Bloodlines - with these books Richelle Mead proved to me that NOT all vampire novels are the same, no matter how many you've read.
    Wonderful list!
    My TTT

  3. I own a few Sarah Dessen books but I haven't read them yet! I guess I should get on that. I like the title of This Lullaby though.

  4. Such an amazing list!!! I love so many of those and they have a special place in my heart!

  5. Love The Hunger Games books!
    My TTT:

  6. We both have Cassandra Clare on our lists! That's awesome! :)

  7. This Lullaby is my favorite Sarah Dessen novel! Well it might be tied with The Truth About Forever.

  8. I really enjoyed the Hunger Games and the Caster Chronicles series as well. Great list!

  9. I am as well obsessed with everything Sarah Dessen writes! I've been for years. She's one of my top three favorite authors! Great list! Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Reading!

  10. Sarah Dessen! I love her! She is definitely one of my favorite authors, hands down.

  11. I loved The Hunger Games and we both have it on our lists! I've been debating over picking up Ugies for a while so this has made me even more tempted to read it soon! Great list!
