Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted buy The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new topic and invite everyone to share their lists.


Top Ten Books I would classify as all time favourites from the past 5 years

I had to throw this post together really quickly this week – sorry about that. I have been teaching most nights so ‘free’ time is limited.

These are the books I would consider to be my all time favourites, from what I’ve read over the past 5 years. There is a real mixture here – fantasy, dystopian, romance, historical and crime/thrillers.

1. Only Ever Yours by Louise O’Neill

2. The Hunger Games, Catching Fire & Mockingjay

3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

4. Throne of Glass & Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas

5. The Light Between Oceans by M.L Stedman

6. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

7. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

8. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

9. Pretty Little Things by Julianne Hoffman

10. PS I love you by Cecelia Ahern

Have you read any of these?

Happy Reading!

  1. Great list! I love that you have Jane Eyre on the list. That is one of my favorites!

  2. I have read some of these, it’s a very eclectic list. I never finished Water for Elephants, I just couldn’t get into it. Here’s my list.

  3. I’ve also included some of these titles in my list this week; namely Steelheart and Catching Fire, though I haven’t finished Mockingjay to determine which of the three would be my favourite.

    joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts.

    • I just loved Steelheart – I need to get my hands on the sequel which is now out, have you read it? I love all of The Hunger Games trilogy, although I would probably agree that Catching Fire is also my favourite (if I had to choose!)
