TTT: Top Ten Books This Year (So Far)

This week The Broke and the Bookish asks for the Top Ten Books I’ve Read So Far This Year. In no particular order, they are:

The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Catching Fire is my favorite, because everything changes, but I always marathon the series, so I’m only counting them as one book. 😉

The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (J. K. Rowling). This hard-boiled detective novel reminded me a bit of Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon. I’m looking forward to the sequel, The Silkworm, due out this summer.

The Giver Quartet by Lois Lowry. Intriguing and thought provoking. My posts on The Giver and the rest of the Quartet.

Sabriel by Garth Nix. Atmospheric and exciting! My post.

Sunshine by Robin McKinley. McKinley’s world is enthralling! My post.

Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton. Favorite new-to-me read! My post.

Lemony Snicket’s All The Wrong Questions series. Exactly what you’d expect from Snicket – funny and snarky! My post.

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie. One of my favorite Poirot books!

The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery. Beautiful romance! My post.

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. Too stinkin’ cute and completely nostalgic! Review Thursday!

I’m linking up: Top Ten Tuesday

    I’m also looking forward to the next Robert Galbraith novel! I love a good mystery…so a mystery by the author of Harry Potter…you know I’m going to love it! Also, I love that you included an Agatha Christie (my all time fave)!

    Catching Fire was my favorite of the trilogy as well. You enjoyed The Cuckoo’s Calling? I haven’t read it yet because I DNF’ed The Casual Vacancy so I was worried. I love crime/detective fiction so I should probably try it.
    I know you already read it, but here’s my TTT! 🙂

    So many books…so little time! Didn’t even know Rowling wrote mystery. Perhaps that’s where I should begin with my Literary Summer Plan #1?

      They are really fun! I read them to my kids, but I would’ve read them anyway. I love that the kids in the book talk about books that they’ve read, but they don’t say the titles, only the plot points. My kids and I had so much fun figuring out what books they were talking about!

    You have a nice blog there 🙂 I haven’t read Rowling’s detective novel, but I am currently reading The Maltese Falcon.
    I started reading the Anne of Green Gables books last spring. I didn’t realize L.M. Montgomery wrote other books until I started blogging. I really look forward to reading her other works.

      Why, thank you!
      The Maltese Falcon is great! It’s probably going to be on my Top Ten Classics list in a few weeks. Are you going to participate in that one?
      L. M. Montgomery was quite prolific! I used to own most of her books, but I gave a bunch away to a friend’s daughter. I do still have the Anne books (actually 3 copies of Anne of Green Gables), and a first edition of Jane of Lantern Hill. 🙂

    Sunshine’s one of my all time favorites and HOLY COW there’s a grown up L.M. Montgomery book! Excuse me while I go check out whether my library carries this…. Great list!
