It’s time for another Top 10 Tuesday!!! For those of you who don’t know, Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish! This week we were tasked with choosing our top ten reads of the year so far! I decided to choose mine based on my star ratings! I had a few select 5 star reads this year, but majority have been 4s and 3.5s. This list was pretty easy to put together, but I assume it will change by the end of the year! Without further ado, here are my top 10 reads of the year so far!
I don’t think I have ever given any volume of Deadly Class lower than a 5 star rating. This is my all-time favourite comic series and I was highly anticipating this new volume this year! It definitely did not disappoint and I think it may be one of the best volumes so far! I highly recommend this series if you haven’t read it yet!
I’m pretty sure that everyone was anticipating this one this year! The third and final book in the Shades Of Magic series did not disappoint and it was a solid finale! I’m sad that it’s over, but this book definitely deserved a 5 star rating!
This one was unexpected for me! I had learned about Motor Crush through an event with Indigo Teen and I decided to check it out. I read issue #1 and immediately needed to read the rest! I absolutely LOVED this first volume and I can’t wait to see where the story goes!
After reading The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner, I knew I needed to read anything else that he would write in the future. I pre-ordered Goodbye Days the second I hear about it and I’m so glad that I did. I’m not a cryer when it comes to reading books, but man…this one had me on the verge of tears.
Honestly, Beartown is also basically a 5 star rating for me as well. The only reason for knocking off a few points was the slow start. Other than that, this book was amazing. It’s still on my mind after reading it a few months ago. Definitely a future re-read.
Ugh. This book was so good. I’m not a fast reader by any means and I read this book in two nights…that’s super fast for me okay! I fell in love with the story and its characters right away. I highly highly recommend this one if you’re looking for a cute contemporary story that also deals with the concept of anxiety.
I had read The Girls In The Garden by Lisa Jewell last year and while it wasn’t amazing, I still loved the writing style and storyline. When I heard about I Found You, I knew I needed to read it. I’m so glad I picked this one up as it was such an amazing read! This was another one that I blew through in basically two nights. I highly recommend this one if you’re looking for a fantastic thriller!
It wouldn’t be a top 10 books of the year list if it didn’t include Shaun David Hutchinson. His books are amazing and I have loved every single one that I have read so far! This was probably my absolute most anticipated book of the year! And it arrived in time for my long flight to and back home from Tokyo! It hasn’t been my favourite of his, but it was just as amazing!
This was another unexpected favourite for me! I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into before reading it, but it turned out to be very entertaining. I haven’t read a good sci-fi in a while so I think it made this list just based on the fact that it was so different from everything else I’ve been reading this year!
The Backstagers was probably the cutest thing I have read ever. I don’t read a lot of light and fluffy stories and this was just the perfect change up for me. It was so well written and so fun! I absolutely LOVED this one.
There you have it! My top 10 reads of the year so far! What have been your favourite reads? Do any of ours match up?!
Thank you for reading!
