TGIF (13)

TGIF is a meme hosted weekly at GReads! that allows bloggers to answer a book-related question and to recap their reading week!

Question

Best I’ve Read So Far: We’re half way through the year (crazy how time flies!), which top 3 books are the best you’ve read so far this year?

Answer

I’ve read about 90 books so far this year (some were picture books, so this isn’t necessarily as impressive as it sounds), and only 7 have gotten five stars on my Goodreads page.  So, the best this year include:

  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (review)
  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer (review to come)
  • Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery (An obvious choice since it’s one of my favorite books.  Review to come during our L. M. Montgomery event starting July 8)

      I was so glad it lived up to all the hype! I thought it was really beautiful, and a really different type of book. I would love for the author to write something else soon!

        One of my friends told me that the author used that story for her project in the annual writing competition NaNoWrMo. Maybe I should do that this year, write the rough draft in November, revise it in March, and see what I have to work with after that!

          Wow. That’s impressive, but probably a good idea. I at least find that writing is hard because I’m so judgmental about whether the plot or the writing is good enough that I never get anywhere. So if you can force yourself to just write anything, and then work on revising it later, it sounds as if it could really work!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I see that Cinder is one of your choices – I’ve been very interested in reading that so good to see it get such high praise 🙂

      I wasn’t too interested when it came out. I was very skeptical about being able to relate to a cyborg, but it is really good, and I definitely recommend it.

    I enjoyed The Night Circus too! Am starting to read Cinder next month, as part of the “Operation diminish reading pile”. Not a very catchy operation name but I’ve always been one to use more words when a couple would suffice!
    BookishHobbitt makes a good point, I think I should take time to do NaNoWriMo this year too!

      I have a huge list of books I want to read, too! I hope you enjoy Cinder! Except then you’ll have to wait in suspense for the next book to come out.
