Top 10 Tuesday: June 22

Two owls are in two corners of a purple backdrop. purple leaves drape the other two corners. 'Top 10 Tuesday' is set in the middle.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. You can find the themes/dates for Top 10 Tuesday here.

Happy 10 years to Top 10 Tuesday! This week you can choose to: (a) put your own spin on a previous Top 10, or (b) complete a Top 10 you missed out on. I decided on Option (b), since I’m fairly new to posting Top 10 lists on my blog!

This Week’s Post

The Best Books I’ve Read During Each of the Last 10 Years


Shanghai Girls by Lisa See

Shanghai Girls was the first book by Lisa See I’ve read, and I fell in love with her work! Her Historical Fiction is so lovely! I can’t wait to absorb myself in her characters with every story she writes!


A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn was a book recommended to me by my NYC poetry therapy circle. I’m so glad that I read this story! It’s such a lovely coming of age story.


Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris

This is a wonderful supernatural horror between a vampire and a telepath. This was a 13 book series, but I think I stopped at book 6 or 7 (the one where Quinn disappeared). I really need to continue this series!


Kushiel’s Dart by Jacqueline Carey

I read Kushiel’s Dart during the summer of 2013. I needed some light reading to pass the time during the summer, and discovered this story through Felicia Day’s Vaginal Fantasy Romance Book Club on YouTube. It ran until 2018, but their list/videos are still listed if anyone wants to check it out!
While Kushiel’s Dart was a huge read (over a thousand pages!), it was a pretty good story!


Chronicles of Vladimir Tod by Z Brewer

The Vladimir Tod series was so addictive and emotional! It was exciting to read Vlad’s growth throughout the series!


Nightbird by Alice Hoffman

This was such a captivating Middle Grade story filled with witchcraft, friendship, and a curse!


It Takes a Witch by Heather Blake

Around this time, I began to branch out on reading genres. Mystery sounded like a interesting genre, and the topic of It Takes a Witch still leaned toward the supernatural, so I was immediately hooked!


The Moonlit Garden by Corina Bowman

I received The Moonlit Garden through Amazon Kindle’s First Reads program. this was such a lovely Historical Romance!


One Day in December by Josie Silver

This was such an emotional contemporary romance. A love story spread out over a decade!


Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I know that this book has mixed reactions within the bookish community, but I absolutely LOVED this story! I read Daisy Jones through Audiobook format, which made the story flow beautifully!

That’s my list of best books throughout the decade! I wonder what my fave will be for 2020…
