LET'S DO THIS.
as always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovelies over at The Broke And Bookish!
1. The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S King - She's known for her other books like Please Ignore Vera Dietz but no one talks about her debut! AND HER DEBUT IS AWESOME.
2. The Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement Moore - I've said this before and i'll say it again: she is one of the most underrated authors in the universe. THIS BOOK IS AWESOME. And her most recent novel, Texas Gothic? EVEN MORE AWESOME.
3. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken - Epic, so epic, so epic. This one got quite a lot of buzz in the blogosphere but I still don't think enough people have read it!
4. Lament by Maggie Stiefvater - Everyone is always going crazy about her Wolves of Mercy Falls Trilogy but what about her books about homicidal faeries she wrote before those? Lament? Was amazing! Maggie's writing with a twisted plot and amazing characters.
5. Epic Fail by Clarie LeZebnik - So much cute is contained in this book that I can't EVEN. It's for fans of Anna And The French Kiss and Lola! Light-hearted, funny and a Pride & Prejudice retelling!
6. The Thief by Megan Whale Turner - This isn't for people who can't handle slow, intriguing, amazing books. This isn't "IN YOUR FACE" about its epicness, but it's slow and twisty and awesome.
7. The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton - Didn't get as much buzz as it deserved! LOVE this book!
8. Apothecary by Maile Meloy - This got some pretty major buzz but i'm sure a lot of you haven't read it, am I right? It was amazing. It's magical and adventurous and the characters are well-rounded and brave!
9. Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves - Now I have a theory about this book: people either LOVE it or absolutely hate it and think the author is crazy. I am of the opinion this book is brilliant! Dia's writing isn't for the lighthearted, just a warning. It's gritty and dark and SO twisted. Bleeding Violet is about a girl with bipolar disorder and there's things like monsters and crazy people and naked torture scenes so....you know. But it's epic.
10. The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima - Now this one is WAY more popular. This is a best-selling series but i'm including it because WHY HASN'T THE ENTIRE WORLD READ THIS SERIES? WHY?
