As if you needed more of my fav this month … My Best Books of the Decade!

What are your best books of the decade? 

Hi friends,

Tomorrow will be the last day of a decade! I can’t believe it but …time is flying by!
I have seen other bloggers choosing their best books for the decade and I thought it was a brilliant idea!

All the books that you will find below (more than 10 I am afraid but I tried to limit my winners) are books that:
-I have read;
-Had a deep impact on me, to have me recall them years later!

And with me reading between 250 and 130 books a year these last years, recalling them is proof that they are INCREDIBLE and that of course YOU SHOULD READ THEM!🤣

I have narrowed it down to 26 books. On what must have been more than 1700 books read in ten years I’d call it a success!

Now my winners are, by year:

🔰2010: Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma (destroyed me);


🔰2011: Consequences by Aleatha Romig (Toniii) & The Scorpio Race by Maggie Stefvater;


🔰2012: Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas & Me Before You by Jojo Moyes;


🔰2013: Making Faces by Amy Harmon (still my best of the bests) & Angelfall by Susan Ee (Raffe!) & Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters;


🔰2014: Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn (best plotter and best MC) & Transcendence by Shay Savage (Luv Ehd) & Radiance by Grace Draven (don’t judge a book by its cover);


🔰2015: I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios & ACOTAR by Sarah J Maas (Rhysand 😍);


🔰2016: Full Tilt by Emma Scott (still crying and my first by Emma) & All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood (taboo and gutsy) & From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon & Beartown by Fredrik Backman;


🔰2017: A Charm of Finches by Suanne Bierman Laqueur (Jav!!!! and Geno and …) & Forever Right Now by Emma Scott (grab happy and run like hell) & A List of Cages by Robin Roe;


🔰2018: The Silver Cage by Anonymous (thanks Jennifer Ristic 😍) & Sadie by Courtney Summers & Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens;


🔰2019: Birthday by Meredith Russo & The Reckless Oath We Made by Bryn Greenwood & Sorcery of Thorns by Margareth Rogerson.

Now do tell me: what are yours? Do we share some?

PS I noticed that Emma Scott, Amy Harmon and Bryn Greenwood are mentioned twice!😮

Thanks for reading!

  1. Forbidden made my Best of the Decade list too (for the same reason!). And there are lots of other books here that I LOVED—especially A List of Cages and Birthday!

    Forbidden is on my TBR, as well as the scorpio races as you know how I feel about Stiefvater! Sadie was just okay for me. I was not surprised to see Throne of Glass and ACOTAR make your list! I also really need to read Beartown and even have it. I so need to read Sorcery of Thorns and I read Me Before You and it blew my mind. I have heard some problematic things about it since, but yeah, I did like it at the time!

      What problematic things Olivia? Now you are intriguing me! LOL

        DM on instagram about it?

  3. Really great list! Sadie is wonderful! And list of cages is a great book. Really want to read sorcery of thorns as well.

      I hope you’ll get the opportunity to read it this year!

  4. Oh wow, 26 out of all of thoses books — Kudos to you ! That’s impressive.
    I literally have no recall of anything beyond 2018 xd (thank you anxiety & depression..) and I wasn’t old enough to track them anywhere so nothing to help my memory, merps!

    I haven’t read any of thoses (but I did saw the me before you movie..) – Sadie & When the Crawdads sings is on my virtual wanna read though [the only two that I remember by the covers XD].
    I’ve now added I’ll meet you there, aswell.

      Kristina I used Goodreads to remember all the books that I have read otherwise ….LOL

  5. I love your Decades’ list. It shows the books had staying power. I’ve only read one of them, but have six on my TBR pile so it looks like I have some good reading ahead. 🙂

      Oh yes Sophia! And I hope you’ll love them all!

  6. Forbidden destroyed me as well!

      I still think about it Kayla!

  7. There have been so many great books this past decade. I LOVE to see Eidolon on your list, boy I love that couple. Grace Draven is queen in my book. Cheers to another great decade of reading and books.

      I have just read your best romance of 2019 and seen that indeed Grace Draven is on your list!

  8. You’ve got quite a few of mine Sophie, including: Sadie, the Sarah Maas books, and Angel Fall. I’d also add:
    Room, by Emma Donohughe
    Becoming, by Michelle Obama
    Catch and Kill, by Ronan Farrow
    NOS4A2, by Joe Hill
    The Fifth Season, by N.K. Jesmin
    The Passage, by Justin Cronin

    I’d better stop here!

      Bwahahaha hard not to scream when we love right? And Becoming was incredible Kim!

  9. ToG is a favorite series, and Me Before You broke me, just like Emma Scott’s books did. I was really happy I finally read I’ll Meet You There, and I also really loved the book. Now I’m part of the club.

    1. BewareOfTheReader says: Reply

      And I am really happy that you are part of the club Sam!!!

  10. I absolutely LOVED six of those. The rest I need to read. Forbidden (thank you for that one); Making Faces; Me Before You; Transcendence, Full Tilt and Forever Right Now. Great list.
