What are your best books of the decade? 

Hi friends,

Tomorrow will be the last day of a decade! I can’t believe it but …time is flying by!
I have seen other bloggers choosing their best books for the decade and I thought it was a brilliant idea!

All the books that you will find below (more than 10 I am afraid but I tried to limit my winners) are books that:
-I have read;
-Had a deep impact on me, to have me recall them years later!

And with me reading between 250 and 130 books a year these last years, recalling them is proof that they are INCREDIBLE and that of course YOU SHOULD READ THEM!🤣

I have narrowed it down to 26 books. On what must have been more than 1700 books read in ten years I’d call it a success!

Now my winners are, by year:

🔰2010: Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma (destroyed me);


🔰2011: Consequences by Aleatha Romig (Toniii) & The Scorpio Race by Maggie Stefvater;


🔰2012: Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas & Me Before You by Jojo Moyes;


🔰2013: Making Faces by Amy Harmon (still my best of the bests) & Angelfall by Susan Ee (Raffe!) & Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters;


🔰2014: Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn (best plotter and best MC) & Transcendence by Shay Savage (Luv Ehd) & Radiance by Grace Draven (don’t judge a book by its cover);


🔰2015: I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios & ACOTAR by Sarah J Maas (Rhysand 😍);


🔰2016: Full Tilt by Emma Scott (still crying and my first by Emma) & All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood (taboo and gutsy) & From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon & Beartown by Fredrik Backman;


🔰2017: A Charm of Finches by Suanne Bierman Laqueur (Jav!!!! and Geno and …) & Forever Right Now by Emma Scott (grab happy and run like hell) & A List of Cages by Robin Roe;


🔰2018: The Silver Cage by Anonymous (thanks Jennifer Ristic 😍) & Sadie by Courtney Summers & Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens;


🔰2019: Birthday by Meredith Russo & The Reckless Oath We Made by Bryn Greenwood & Sorcery of Thorns by Margareth Rogerson.

Now do tell me: what are yours? Do we share some?

PS I noticed that Emma Scott, Amy Harmon and Bryn Greenwood are mentioned twice!😮

Thanks for reading!

  1. Forbidden is on my TBR, as well as the scorpio races as you know how I feel about Stiefvater! Sadie was just okay for me. I was not surprised to see Throne of Glass and ACOTAR make your list! I also really need to read Beartown and even have it. I so need to read Sorcery of Thorns and I read Me Before You and it blew my mind. I have heard some problematic things about it since, but yeah, I did like it at the time!

  2. Oh wow, 26 out of all of thoses books — Kudos to you ! That’s impressive.
    I literally have no recall of anything beyond 2018 xd (thank you anxiety & depression..) and I wasn’t old enough to track them anywhere so nothing to help my memory, merps!

    I haven’t read any of thoses (but I did saw the me before you movie..) – Sadie & When the Crawdads sings is on my virtual wanna read though [the only two that I remember by the covers XD].
    I’ve now added I’ll meet you there, aswell.

  3. I love your Decades’ list. It shows the books had staying power. I’ve only read one of them, but have six on my TBR pile so it looks like I have some good reading ahead. 🙂

  4. There have been so many great books this past decade. I LOVE to see Eidolon on your list, boy I love that couple. Grace Draven is queen in my book. Cheers to another great decade of reading and books.

  5. You’ve got quite a few of mine Sophie, including: Sadie, the Sarah Maas books, and Angel Fall. I’d also add:
    Room, by Emma Donohughe
    Becoming, by Michelle Obama
    Catch and Kill, by Ronan Farrow
    NOS4A2, by Joe Hill
    The Fifth Season, by N.K. Jesmin
    The Passage, by Justin Cronin
    11/22/63, by Stephen King
    The Bill Hodges Trilogy, by Stephen King
    Days Without End, by Sebastian Barry

    I’d better stop here!

  6. ToG is a favorite series, and Me Before You broke me, just like Emma Scott’s books did. I was really happy I finally read I’ll Meet You There, and I also really loved the book. Now I’m part of the club.

  7. I absolutely LOVED six of those. The rest I need to read. Forbidden (thank you for that one); Making Faces; Me Before You; Transcendence, Full Tilt and Forever Right Now. Great list.
