Favorite Reads from the Past 3 Years

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Books from the Past 3 Years.

You guys know what you’re asking me, right? I listed like 20+ books in my Best of 2014 post. How will I ever narrow down the last 3 years to ten? Ok. I’ll make this easy on myself. Only the books I rated 5 stars in the last 3 years (March 2012-March 2015). And somehow I still ended up with 30. But that’s not bad right? 10 from each year (roughly). These do include a couple of re-reads that I read prior to 2012, but re-read within the last 3 years and still rate 5 Stars.

What are your favorite reads from the last three years? Let me know!


  1. It is so hard to just pick ten books, there are just so many amazing books out there. Pushing the Limits and The Fault In Our Stars also made my list. I picked Shadow Kiss out off the VA series but I think that I rated them all five stars actually.

  2. So hard to pick just ten! This is a great list! I have TFiOS on mine as well!

  3. Great picks!! I love the VA series, Easy and Slammed -- and I really need to start the Shatter Me series, I see it on so many lists today!!


  4. I loved Captivating too! I've even re-read it. The audiobook is just as good.
    I'm sure you can get a free copy of Anne of Green Gables on kindle...but it might be nice to have a physical copy of it too! Thanks for stopping by and commenting Amanda!

  5. Those are all some of my favorites as well (obviously)! I hope you get to start Shatter Me. Thanks for stopping by Eva! Sorry I'm so late responding!

  6. HA! Don't I know it. I have a hard time picking ten on a regular week! :) The Fault in our Stars is going to be a classic for sure! Thanks for stopping by and commenting Alison! Sorry for the delay in responding!

  7. Yes, I have a hard time picking ten on a regular week so this week was impossible. I loved Shadow Kiss as well but unfortunately it's been over three years since I read it. Thanks for stopping by and commenting El! Sorry for the delay in responding!

  8. I LOVED Captivating. My friends and I read it together my first year of college. It was great.
    Anne of Green Gables is amazing as well. I haven't read it in a few years as I cannot find my copy. :-( I might break down and just buy a new one since I saw some great editions last time I was at Barnes and Noble.
    Thanks for sharing!
