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*
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. :)
