Welcome to this weeks Top Ten Tuesday, a bookish meme hosted by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish. Each week bloggers are giving a new topic to create a top ten list.
This weeks top ten topic is the top ten books I’ve read so far in 2015. Honestly, I’m way behind on my reading this year, but I’ve also been way busy these past few weeks and still have much to do. But I have found those few special books that really found their places on my self.
I fell in love with this series in the first book, and the second one is just as good! It takes place at the same time as Sherlock and Watson are on the streets of London, but this takes place in the US and has a paranormal elements. A middle school age Sherlock/Supernatural crossover, anyone? Whatever you do, don’t stare at the frog, please.
I just loved the pure out geekdom of this book. Normal readers probably won’t appreciate it, but geeks will love it just so they can point out references to their fandom(s).
I have a weak spot for books that involve main characters with mental illnesses overcoming struggles, and I love Alex and Miles. They both have their own problems and not the best of personalities, which made the characters relatable.
Oh, how I loved this book! Brandon is a teenage computer hacker that eventually finds himself being forcefully changed into a decent human being against his will. The Brandon in the mirror is ripping off his tattoos and piercings, and tossing his punk clothes for preppy!
Okay, Kami is a science genius. She gets the idea to make her locker into a science experiment- on the CHAOS THEORY! But eventually it isn’t about the locker anymore, but about how a murdered girl’s life was ruled by chances and chaos. Perfect application!
I was sooo pumped when Yelena and Valek finally made a comeback, and Shadow Study did not disappoint! It has all the original characters I fell in love with in the original series, some from the spin-off series, and new comers that put this series a large leap in the right direction.
This is an indie book that is a hilarious collection of zombie stories. Basically, the admin of the afterlife made a few mistakes and people are sent back to their bodies. Then up pops all sort of chaos including politically correct terms (zombie is derogatory, we prefer NDE [Not Dead Enoughs]), and if the undead can collect on insurance since technically they are dead.
Again, another book in which the main characters have a mental illness. This book shows two sides of depression: one character is the classic outcast teen and the other is popular with a loving family and friends. This book shows that depression effects people of all stations in life.
I have loved all the books in this series so far, and JarJar Binks crossed with Shakespeare was brilliant!
This is the last volume of my lovely Dengeki Daisy, so I had to add it. T_T
I’m going to miss the innocent Teru and the slightly perverted Kurosaki (Go Bald!). It’s a light romance, mostly centering on mystery and cyber crime that got Teru’s elder brother (and only guardian) killed. I hated to see it go, but the ending was slightly awesome. 😉
