13514612Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish… my list is in no real order.

I have finished 44 books so far this year, ranging from rereads to new releases. I’m actually on track for one of my best reading years, in terms of quality if not quantity. So many great books! So, what are my top 10 so far?

Prey by Rachel Vincent
I just finished my third reread of this book as part of my gradual reread of this series, which is one of my all time favorites. Third time in, and I still cried like a baby. No other urban fantasy book has ever stomped on my heart quite like this one. Add in some fantastic writing from Rachel Vincent and a paranormal society that I’m fully in love with, and it’s hard to argue with loving this book.

All Our Yesterdays
I picked this one up at BEA and haven’t even written up a review yet, but I loved it! It’s wonderfully plotted and will have you so conficted in all the right ways. Almost a week later, and I’m still thinking about this story.

For Darkness Shows the Stars
A wonderful, beautiful book. The sequel was one of my very few must-grabs at BEA, but now I’m nervous to read it because I can’t imagine it will live upto book one.

Just One Day
This book is a must-read. I have a window of about three books a year that I can convince my sister to read, this is one of the few I’ll be nudging toward her.

Cinder
I put off reading this book for awhile, and I have no idea why. Such a fun read that combined so many of my favorite story elements.

In The After
All the things that The 5th Wave didn’t really do for me, this one did. An epic sci-fi story that bridges the gap between post-apocalypic and dystopian.

The Friday Society
I’ve gushed about this one a fair bit already, but seriously… read it. A YA debut from a Canadian author. One part steampunk, two parts girl power.

Steelheart
My first Brandon Sanderson book, and I can now say I know what all the fuss is about. A memorable superhero story with a dark edge. It’s going to be hard to wait for the next book!

Oath Bound
Rachel Vincent again! The third book in her Unbound series, which was just as ammmaazziinngg as the first two. Quite possibly the best urban fantasy series I’ve ever read.

You Look Different In Real Life
This one really suprised me, and was a great reminder of why I still read contemporary even though I love fantasy above all others. This book did a wonderful job at taking an interesting scenario and breaking it back down to the things that make us human.

The Fault In Our Stars
Yeah… duh.

Yup, that’s 11. Well, now I can’t pick one to take off the list. It has been a good year!
