My Top 10 all time favorite Books

My Top 10 “all time” favorite Books

TTT Prompt for March 3:
Top Ten Books You Would Classify As ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOKS from the past 3 years

This is REALLY hard to pick up 10 books out of around 225 books I have read since January 2013. But that was a good exercise, that actually brought some surprises:

I always say that right now my favorite genre is historical fiction, but only one showed up in my list!
Then 1 crime fiction (surprise!), 1 mystery, 2 science fiction (another surprise!), 1 literary fiction, and 4 nonfiction!

Here are the book covers. You can easily find my reviews for each by using for instance my Authors List

    My TTT


  3. I haven’t made a list, but Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore would definitely be on it – it might even be one of my top three of the past three years.


  4. The Consolations of the Forest and Irene look good.All the Light We Cannot See has been on my TBR list for awhile. I must get a copy.I don’t really like science fiction, but I see a few bloggers praising The Martian.


    • it is such a beautiful contemplative book. the author almost killed himself falling from his roof recently. he was in the coma for a while. he is recovering. I saw him on a French cultural program, face all banged up, but he made it!


  5. I feel embarrassed to say I haven’t read any of these books ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Could you recommend your favourite one? ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for stopping by my blog too!


    • oh wow, favorite of favorites! so went back to see if I had time to reread 1 which would I would take: The Consolations of the Forest, but that’s because of my love for contemplative setting and style. If you listen to audiobooks though, you REALLY need to listen to Ready Player One, everyone has been so ecstatic about it


  6. I love your slideshow! I really enjoyed Ready Player One and would really like to read Mr. Penumbra’s, The Martian and All the Light We Cannot See.
