{Top Ten Tuesday} 10 Favorite Books From Last 10 Years

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is 10 favorite books from the last 10 years.

This was so hard! Having to narrow down ONE book a year is almost impossible to do. Some years I read so many amazing books that it’s hard to pick an absolute favorite. But I did, minus 2016, where I had to pick 2 books, because they are my two absolute favorite books of all time (It Ends With Us and Making Faces). These are all books that left a lasting impression on me.

Summer Reading Guides – What are you excited to read this summer?

Last summer, I discovered Modern Mrs. Darcy and her Summer Reading Guide, where she recommends the best books of the summer. And this year, I discovered Sarah’s Book Shelves also publishes her own Summer Reading Guide. Not that I need to add more books to my TBR list, but I was excited to see these lists come out this week! And I was happy to see I’ve already read (and loved) several books on Sarah’s guide, and have many of them waiting on my Kindle (and a few physical copies) to read. Are you excited about any of these books?

Make sure to check out both of their blogs for more recommendations and to download their Summer Reading Guides.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Audio Book Love

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Audio Freebie (Any audio goes: audio books, music, podcasts, you name it.).

I only started listening to audio books again in the past year, and I love them. I listen while I’m running, cleaning, cooking and sometimes when I’m working. It has helped me clear off some of the books that have been on my TBR list for a long time, too. For this week’s TTT, I wanted to share some of my favorite audio books, and some audio books I want to listen to in the future.

 

Favorite Audio Books

Audio Books on my Wish List

I loved listening to The Hate U Give on audio – and I hope On the Come Up is just as good.

I’ve already read Daisy Jones (and loved it), but I keep hearing the audio is fantastic.

When I started listening to audio books again, my first book was a Peter Swanson book, which I really enjoyed.

I really want to read the whole Harry Potter series, but at this rate, I’m wondering if listening to the audio versions would be a more realistic goal for me.

I have loved the 2 nonfiction audio books I recently listened to, so I have Maid on hold from the library. If you have any great nonfiction audio book recommendations, please share!
