Top Ten Tuesday

Posted June 30, 2015 by Nicky in General / 13 Comments

This week’s theme is the top ten books read so far in 2015. Which is at least easier than all-time favourites or something like that!

  1. Voyage of the Basilisk, Marie Brennan. Or Tropic of Serpents, in fact. I gave them both five stars!
  2. Acceptance, Jeff VanderMeer. Though it’s the whole series, really; they’re so weird, and I think you do need to read all three to get a good picture.
  3. Grave Mercy, Robin LaFevers. Or the second book… I might even prefer the second book. But yeah, I was surprised by how much I liked these.
  4. The Just City, Jo Walton. Nobody’s surprised. Are you?
  5. Season of Storms, Susanna Kearsley. Go on, break my heart, you meanie.
  6. Lock In, John Scalzi. Really fascinated me.
  7. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Susanna Clarke. Okay, okay, I know it’s a reread, but I discovered a whole new appreciation for it.
  8. Ancillary Justice, Ann Leckie. I might not have given it five stars myself, but it is pretty awesome.
  9. A Court of Thorns & Roses, Sarah J. Maas. I wasn’t a huge fan of Throne of Glass, though it’s fun, but ACOTAR… yeah.
  10. The Lie Tree, Frances Hardinge. I don’t love it like I loved A Face Like Glass, but. Yeah. <3

Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s, but bear in mind I’m in Canada on holiday right now and might not get much chance to comment!

  1. I’m heading to Calgary next week. 🙂 I really loved Jonathan Strange when I read it years ago… very much due for a re-read. I have Ancillary Justice on the top of my book pile, and I’m waiting for Lock In’s paperback release next month! I see we have overlapping book taste — will need to check out some of your other faves. (I didn’t like Acceptance, but maybe I’d appreciate it more if I’d read all three.)

    • If you get chance to drop by a bookshop, I definitely recommend Fair’s Fair on 9th Avenue. Amaaaazing selection, all about ~$5 each. I’ve gone a bit nuts.

      Ancillary Justice was great; I was wary of the hype, but I really liked it in the end!
