Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
This week’s prompt is supposed to be the top ten books I read in 2014, but…pffff. As if that was going to happen. I can’t choose! But there’s a slightly smaller pool of Aussie authors that I read this year.
Hasn’t made it much easier, mind you. Aussie authors are crazy talented, if I do say so myself.
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
The first book I read this year, and it was BRILLIANT.
The Incredible Adventures of Cinnamon Girl by Melissa Keil
An apocalypse, a great main character and awesome relating cast. Plus, awesome cover. What more do you want, people?
The Protected by Claire Zorn
One of my new favourite authors. Both this and The Sky So Heavy blew me away.
Spark by Rachael Craw
Rachael Craw’s actually a Kiwi (from New Zealand, if you don’t know the lingo), but we love her anyway.
The Intern by Gabrielle Tozer
Ha! As if you would have got a list without this book.
Fairytales for Wilde Girls by Allyse Near
It’s dark, it’s creepy, it’s brilliant. It’s got weird fairytales. Awesome characters. You seriously need to read it…like, right now.
Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta
I can reclaim my Aussie status now – I’ve finally read a Melina Marchetta book!
Every Word by Ellie Marney
Teen sleuths solving crimes. It’s awesome.
The Minnow by Diana Sweeney
This book was so unique, and different, and heartbreaking, and I’m STILL not sure what happened at the end, but I do know I loved it.
Disruption by Jessica Shirvington
BECAUSE MAGGIE STEVENS.
The Cinderella Moment by Jennifer Kloester
This book surprised me with how much I loved it. I didn’t expect to! It was just so light and lovely and happy and…I just really enjoyed it.
