Top Ten Tuesday #29: Favorite Books Released In the Last FIVE Years


Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl.  We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!

This week’s (May 28th, 2019) topic is: Favorite Books Released In the Last Ten Years. Since there are two of us, we are changing it to: Favorite Books Released in the Last FIVE Years.



I’m just going to list what comes to mind, there is no way I could really narrow it down to one book in one year but I’ll try to go with what is most on brand for me, here goes!

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer (2014)
Gotta start off with some Lunar, this series was the one that really caught my eye and drew me back in to YA after years away.  It was probably the first one I noticed on the shelf and took a chance on and who doesn’t love and Cress and Thorne?

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas (2015)
I had to include Maas because after MANY years away from the YA genre pretty much entirely this one of the books that drew me back in and let me know that YA was completely different than from what I grew up with.  #trashformaas

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows (2016)
I mean this has to be included.  It’s still one of my all-time favorite books.  It got me more open to historical fiction (thank you!) and it just makes me heart so fuzzy.  Hilarious and fun.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid (2017)
One of those books that just changes you after you’ve read it.  Flawed, incredible characters.  I had heard everyone raving but I didn’t really expect to think much, I was wrong.  This book is a masterpiece.

Legendary by Stephanie Garber (2018)
One of those polarizing series that you either love or hate and since this is making my list, obviously I adore it! One of my favorite series of all-time currently, just such a fun ride.

There are so many more books that could’ve made this list but I had only 5 spots and most of these are pretty recent releases too.

Dreams of Gods and Mosnters by Laini Taylor (2014)
This series was just so amazing, I recently just finished it and it’s the kind of book that you kick yourself for not reading earlier.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (2015)
Who’s excited for the sequel to this one? This girl! OMG I cannot wait to slide back into this world. Everyone needs more Baz in their life.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff (2016)
Ok I think everyone knows by now that this series is my all time favourite, so it’s no surprise that is made this list. I love everything about it from the plot to the characters to the snarky writing, I just think it’s the best.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid (2017)
This book took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did and that it would stay with me months after finishing it. I think it’s well near perfection.

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black (2018)
This was my first ever Holly Black book and I completely understand why some call her the fae queen. It was such a great book with unlikable characters that you just had to love. Just the way you imagine the fae would be wicked and mischievous.


What are some of your favorite Books Released In the Last Ten Years? Tell us if we have any in common?

  1. Ooh I should have changed this to five years too, since I kinda cheated on this one and didn’t really go year by year. anyway The Cruel Prince is one I want to read and am looking forward to, especially with the third one I can read ’em back to bac maybe!

  2. Oh, Cress! yes! I absolutely loved The Lunar Chronicles! I also really loved The Winternight Trilogy, Zuleikha opens her eyes, Beartown and Circe.

  3. I haven’t read any of these except A Court of Thorns and Roses. My Lady Jane looks interesting! I love historical fiction. I always thought historical fiction and fantasy were pretty close anyway (I mean I guess it depends on the fantasy).

  4. I also loved Evelyn Hugo! That also made my list this week, though it was so hard to choose just one book from every year!! TJR is one of my favorite authors! She does character development and relationships SO well! One True Loves absolutely destroyed me and can’t wait to read some of her older stuff!

  5. I love the idea of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (plus a lot of people seem to really like it), but that cover… I think I might wait a little bit to see if it gets a different cover at some point before purchasing it 😀


  6. Some great books in these lists. I loved The Lunar Chronicles, My Lady Jane, Nevernight and The Cruel Prince. I also really need to read Legendary.

  7. You both chose really well. I don’t think that I could do this. I have read so many fantastic books and I couldn’t narrow it down.


  8. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo has been on my TBR for a while now. I have to get to it ASAP!
