My Top 10 Books from the Last 3 Years

I've read A LOT of books the last three years. Not as many as some, but I'd say it's a decent amount. Let's review a bit and visit some of my favorites since 2012.

(These are listed in no particular order.)

A Place Beyond Courage - Elizabeth Chadwick


I've become a huge Elizabeth Chadwick fan the last few years. She's simply brilliant! If we were to go further back, maybe four or five years, my favorite would be The Greatest Knight. But three years ago I read A Place Beyond Courage which is about William Marshal's father. It was wonderful!

The Fault in Our Stars- John Green


There isn't a whole lot of reason to go into detail about The Fault in our Stars. It's sweet,  heartbreaking, and wonderful. If you haven't read this one yet or at least seen the movie... where have you been?

The Night Circus- Erin Morgenstern


The Night Circus is one of my all-time favorite books. EVER. You've heard me talk about it over and over again. But, I will say, it's not everyone's cup of tea. (Much to my dismay.) So... if you read it and don't like it, either don't tell me or lie so you don't have to see my tears.

Warm Bodies- Issac Marion


This is another book which isn't everyone's cup of tea. But if you don't mind weird supernatural romances - Warm Bodies is adorable, creepy, and beautiful.

The Time Traveler's Wife- Audrey Niffinger


Why did it take me so long getting to reading The Time Traveler's Wife? I don't even know because it's beautiful! MUCH better than the movie. It's tragic, enchanting, and lovely. 

Anna and the French Kiss Trilogy- Stephanie Perkins

6936382  9961796  9627755

When it comes to my favorite series, I can't separate them. I LOVE this trilogy! If you like sweet young adult romances, and you haven't read this trilogy, what are you doing with your life? They're adorable, sweet, and 100% squee worthy.

How I Paid for College- Marc Acito


No, this book won't tell you how to pay off your student loans. (Unfortunately.) Unless you are the perfect blend of Ferris Bueller and Rachel Berry and have a dedicated group of friends who will help you get into Julliard even though your wealthy father just cut you off! Then this book will be a big help. 

His Fair Assassin Trilogy- Robin LaFevers


They're nuns... but they're assassins for the god of death. WHY AREN'T MORE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT THIS TRILOGY??????

Attachments/Fangirl- Rainbow Rowell

8909152  16068905

I couldn't pick between the two. They're both so adorable and awesome. Attachments, while it is creepy, it's also really cute and I can really relate to the characters. Fangirl, it's about a girl who is obsessed with a pretend version of Harry Potter! What's not to love?

Throne of Glass Series- Sarah J Maas


The Throne of Glass Series has quickly become one of my favorites. Depending on how the remaining book (books?) go, it might make my top five ever of all time. It's just SO AMAZING. Go read it right now!

Have you read any of these? What are your favorite books from the last three years?


  1. I loved The Night Circus, too! I recommended it to someone who I thought would love it as much as I did, and sadly, she didn't. And it just about broke my heart. I have the Stephanie Perkins books on my March TBR list. Great choices!

  2. I read Grave Mercy but haven't gotten to the rest of the series yet. All this love I'm seeing for The Night Circus is making me want to reread it!

  3. We have so many in common! I, too, cannot understand why more people haven't read His Fair Assassin Trilogy, it's amazing!

  4. I listened to the audiobook of The Night Circus while commuting to work and I felt like I had entered a magic wonderland every time I got in my car! Haha

    Also, + for anything Rainbow Rowell. I love that you have so much YA on here- that's probably my favorite genre (even though I'm almost 27). I've been wanting to read Stephanie Perkins.

  5. Amazing list, so many of my favorites too! I need to re-read Throne of Glass again soon!

  6. I really need to read Warm Bodies. I saw the movie recently and wasn't really expecting to like it because zombies freak me the hell out, but OH MY GOD IT WAS SO GOOD!!! So yeah. Must read book now.

  7. I saw warm bodies at the theatre, but I didn't know it was based off of a book! I need to go get it now.


Share with me your thoughts! They make me smile.
