The Ten Book Challenge

Thursday, 2 October 2014

First of all, let me send a HUGE thank you to the magnificent PaperbackPrincess @ Young Adult Book Reviews  for tagging me to do this!

So basically the rules are to list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. I have so many of these, so I'm really excited to share them with you! *makes an one hundred book challenge instead*

1. A Mad Wicked Folly, by Sharon Biggs Waller

     I loved this book to death. Maybe it holds a place in my heart so deeply because it's one of the only historical fiction that I give a million stars to? Damn, but really, Will Fletcher was the hottest male character ever. ;)

2. Dissonance, by Erica O'Rourke

       *tears up when sees cover* MAN OMG MY FAVOURITE BOOK OF 2014 AND ONE OF MY FAVOURITES EVER! It was the first physical ARC I've ever gotten and the best parallel-universe story, ever. AHHH.

3. The Secret Diamond Sisters, by Michelle Madow

        Every time I remind myself of the feelings that I received when reading this book, I squeal. I just want to remind myself what it felt like to read such a beautiful empress of literature again! (Even though it was only a few weeks ago, hehe.)

4. The Host, by Stephanie Meyer

        YESYESYESYESYES. I read this in a few hours, fell in love, and went to see the movie release day and bought all of the other books associated with it and the movie. Call me a fangirl, haha. IT STOLE MY HEART and it has such a special place that makes me clench up with happiness every time. I need a sequel.

5. Clockwork Princess, by Cassandra Clare

         AH! This trilogy changed my life. This was the best ending to a series that I've ever read about, and the characters ended up to become my best friends—Jem, Tessa, Will, Charlotte, Sophie, Gabriel, ALL OF THEM. Cassie Clare truly surprised us and whipped us around. I bought and read this on publishing date and cried like a maniac and I ended up spoiling myself by looking at the map at the back of the dust jacket. Heh.

6. Hate List, by Jennifer Brown

           I'd have to say that this is probably the most moving book I've ever read. There were flaws, but flaws = perfection, so I was touched by the concept and feelings that it gave me. I never looked at this book the same afterwards because it moved me. 

7. This Star Won't Go Out, by Esther Earl

               Gorgeous Esther Earl is my inspiration. Her story did more than touched my heart and threw my emotions around—it inspired me and she made the world a better place. She inspired me to do so many things and helped me realize what else there is in life. I don't know what I'd do without this book. :)

8. Isla & the Happily Ever After, by Stephanie Perkins

                 Stephanie Perkins is amazing. Stephanie Perkins is a goddess. Stephanie Perkins can make you tear up in a snap. Stephanie Perkins's books are my life-savers and pure literature excellence. Isla, especially. Best book of the trilogy and the most wrecking but gorgeous.

9. Throne of Glass, by Sarah J. Maas

             ToG brought fantasy reads to a whole 'nother level. It showed me that books can be diverse and different, and it made me fall in love with love-triangles all over again as I once did. It is still to this day one of the best books of my life, and I adore this series inside and out!
10. The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins

       Who can forget about the book that I seriously praise and thank everyday (more to the author I guess, haha) for bringing me to YA when I was just 9 years old. After that summer day in August, I never turned back and doubted my decisions with blogging and reading. I LOVE YOU SUZANNE COLLINS. ^_^


     So there goes my choices. These ten books inspired me, changed me, twisted me around, dropped me a few times, made me cry, but most of all, they're special and are in a special place in my heart called love and thanks. :)

Ten people I tag:

Celine, Melanie and Larissa @ YA Midnight Reads

What books were so touching that they stayed close to your heart?


  1. I've been meaning to read A Wicked Mad Folly for the longest time but just haven't gotten around to it (plus that cover is gorgeous!) And haha, I spoiled myself with the map from Clockwork Princess as well! I just couldn't help myself :b Thank you so much for tagging me though, love! I've actually already done it here but I appreciate the thought! Much love <3

  2. Although I have never read Clockwork princess, the first book is one I have in my pile of TBR rating to be reached. I also have Dissonance there waiting for me too! So I look forward to trying those <3 As for the Hunger Games I didn't find it really long lasting for me, although the movies safely do! And don't even get me started on the Host. It was amazing and longlasting and I need to reread that book. Great tag!

  3. OMG girl—it's honestly the best book of the trilogy, and probably the best book Cassandra Clare has written, right next to City of Heavenly Fire. I'm so glad that you're excited—I'd specifically say to drop everything that your reading and go for them. ;) I literally finished The Host in six hours flat in one sitting and then went to see the movie the next day on release date. I am so obsessed and I need Stephanie Meyer to hurry up and write the sequel! Thanks, lovely!


I love comments, I always read them, they always make my day and help me improve my posts. Thank you!
