Top Ten Tuesday – My 10 Favorite Reads of the Year So Far


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is a Freebie, so I thought it would be fun to share my 10 Favorite Reads of the Year So Far. All of my favorite authors delivered big for me in the first half of the year, so these are all highly anticipated releases that met or exceeded my very high expectations.

    Happy Place, Love Theoretically, Hello Stranger, Fourth Wing, and The True Love Experiment are all on my TBR, so I’m excited to see them on your top 10 list!

      Thanks! I fully expect that the sequel to Fourth Wing will be on a similar best of post for the second half of the year. 🙂

    Yours Truly and Fourth Wing were five star reads for me too. I do plan on reading Happy Place, and I own it, but I’ve been waiting because it’s the September choice for one of my book clubs.

    Wow, there are quite a few here I would love to read. I keep hearing about The True Love Experiment. Have a wonderful day, Suzanne 🌞📚💜

      That’s such a fun one. It pairs up with The Soulmate Equation so if you haven’t already read that one, you’ll want to start there. 🙂

    For the ones I read, I have to agree – total standouts. Center, CLo, Jimenez, Henry, and Poston are always great for me. I can’t wait for them to release new books. I was able to snag the Harvey book from the library today. Very excited to read it

    I’ve got all but two of these books on my TBR list, and I’m just waiting for library holds to come in on three of them. 😀

    Fourth Wing, The True Love Experiment and Happy Place made my list too! I only just finished The Seven Year Slip, otherwise it would have been on my list too 🙂 And I’m super excited about Love, Theoretically and Business or Pleasure.

    The Paris Daughter is on my TBR so I’m happy to see it’s been one of your favourites from this year so far!

    I pre-ordered Fourth Wing because it’s Rebecca Yarros and it’s gorgeous, but I’ve been paralyzed ever since and have yet to start it. I get so nervous about fantasy. It’s just not my genre and I actually worry that I’m not going to be able to follow/keep up. Crazy, I know. *shrugs* But there’s no denying the rave reviews!

    It’s a great feeling when you can rely on a dependable author to deliver and keep delivering. I haven’t read any of these (though I definitely recognize most of ’em!), but The Summer of Songbirds’ cover immediately caught my eye. Sounds like a rich, thoughtful read.

    I’ve read three and loved them. ( THE TRUE LOVE EXPERIMENT, YOURS TRULY and HAPPY PLACE). I have three on my TBR (HELLO STRANGER, THE SEVEN YEAR SLIP, and LOVE, THEORETICALLY) and am looking forward to reading them shortly. So happy to see so many I am looking forward to on this list.
