Top Ten Tuesday: Books You Would Classify As All Time Favorites From The Past 3 Years


The theme for The Broke and the Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday is Books You Would Classify As All Time Favorites From The Past 3 Years.  This week I will be listing some of my all time favorites that I have devoured in the last three years.  Here we go, in order of date initially read:

1. A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin (May 21-July 28, 2012)


2. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness (August 16 -23, 2012)


3. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (October 8 -10, 2012)


4. Libriomancer by Jim C. Hines (December 7 -13, 2012)


5. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (January 22 - 24, 2013)


6. Cinder by Marissa Meyer (April 13 - 17, 2013)


7. Night Film by Marisha Pessl (November 22 - 29, 2013)


8. Hounded by Kevin Hearne (April 20 - 23, 2014)


9. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (June 19 - 23, 2014)


10. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (August 20 - September 5, 2014)



There are so many more titles I could add to my list since I'm covering three years worth of reading, but I was somehow able to narrow it down.  If you haven't read any of these, they all come highly recommended from me.  So, how do our lists look?  Do we share any recently read all time favorites?

  1. Gone Girl is on my list this week too. It's certainly a memorable reading experience! :-) Throne of Glass could've easily made my list as well. My TTT

  2. I haven't read any of the books on your list... A few of them sound intriguing, so am sure I'll be adding some new book titles to my ever growing reading wishlist!!

  4. Gone Girl is right outside of my randomly ordered ten.

    I'm glad to see you're enjoying Game of Thrones and the Iron Druid Chronicles.

    This is from Michael over at Nashville Book Worm. It won't let me post via my wordpress account.

  5. Great list!! I loved Game of Thrones, too! I need to start reading the third book. Throne of Glass is amazing and I still need to read Cinder! I haven't read Gone Girl but I saw the movie and I loved it. Did you see/like the film?

    1. Same here - I need to work on the third book. I also need to continue Maas's series. Cinder is fantastic and so is the rest of the series. I've seen Gone Girl, too, and the book is just as good. :)

  6. I love The Knife of Never Letting Go. It's in my top three favorite book of all time list. I just finished Code Name Verity and am now a little broken, but it was so good though.

  11. I'm way behind on the Throne of Glass train, but I'm hoping to read ACOTAR soon so maybe that will persuade me to read anything and everything Sarah Maas
