Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme from That Artsy Reader Girl with this week’s topic about our favorite books from over the last 10 years.
I am not going to lie. I don’t really follow the publishing dates of everything I read so this one took a little research. It was actually fun because some I didn’t realize were published so far back while others were published so recently. I was actually surprised by how many of my favorite books didn’t overlap years.
I fell in love with Ken Follett after reading Pillars of the Earth and its sequel World Without End. It was only natural that I would read Fall of Giants, the first book of the Century Trilogy. I have yet to read the others.
I didn’t read The Night Circus right away but when I did I was blown away. It was filled with magic, love and so much more. I can’t wait to read her second book.
This was the first of Gillian Flynn’s novels that I had ever read and I was instantly hooked. Her writing draws you in until you feel like you are part of the story. And the twists! I remember flipping off the bed and screaming when I got to the twist in this one. I totally didn’t see it coming. I soon learned that it is a signature style of Flynn.
Adichie is an amazing author. I read Americanah a few years ago right when immigration really became a forefront issue and I was completely dumbfounded. This book, while fiction, opened my eyes to a whole new perspective of the immigration issue.
I absolutely loved this book. It left me with tears in my eyes because it raised so many poignant issues and the way Kidd tells it was absolutely beautiful. I have since gone out and started buying her other books.
This was a great thriller that had me guessing until the end.
Another great book about immigration and the impact it has on people who move to the US. I absolutely fell in love with this story.
I had to read this book for book club and I am so glad I did. Lee touched my heart with this book about family identity.
Another book I read because of book club that ended up being a favorite. If you like Alfred Hitchcock you will definitely like this story. I didn’t know what to believe until the last page of the book. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, Finn would throw another curve ball.
I have not yet read anything published this year but you better believe that when Atwood’s sequel to the Handmaid’s Tale comes out, I will be on top of it.
Have you read any of the books on this list? What are some of your favorites from the last 10 years? Let’s discuss!
