All About Books

A book blog, mostly touring foreign worlds of fantasy novels with occasional detours into space and explorations of magical realism, featuring book reviews, random bookish thoughts and hand lettered quotes.

Top Ten All Time Favorite Books

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

OMG, THIS IS HARD! Limiting it to the last 3 years doesn’t help me much because the kind of books I read changed drastically in 2011/12. So I pretty much read all my favorite books within the last 3 years. I just have to cheat on this one and list series instead of just single books. I feel bad already for the ones I don’t mention.



Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness

Well, if you know me at all then you knew this would be on the list. Patrick Ness is my king, and this series my all time favorite and nothing will ever change this, not even the fact that my heart breaks into more pieces with each reread.

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater

This series is everything and PYNCH THE OTP of all OTPs.



All the books by Victoria Schwab

(I’m going to count this as just one! :P) I really love them all. The Archived with Guyliner, because of its unique idea, A Darker Shade of Magic because of Londons,magic,Kell,Rhy,Lila,… and Vicious because of Victor, one of my favorite villains out there.
(I also liked The Near Witch a lot but wouldn’t call it a favorite)



Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson

One of those series that ruined my life for which it became a favorite. 

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Marissa Meyer is the queen of retellings and I absolutely adore these characters.



More Than This and A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

I pretty much love every single book by Patrick Ness because as I said… he is my king^^

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

The book with ALL the references, a super awesome setting and fun characters.

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

I’ve never declared a book a new favorite as fast as this one. PERFECT BOOK IS PERFECT!

Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt

Another one that was just really really sad and that I loved because it was able to make me cry.


There are so many other titles that I didn’t mention and I feel bad about it but I don’t want this list to get any longer. I’ll just find a way to include them in other TTT posts…
