Top Ten Books That I Absolutely Adore

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 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together.

This week’s list is a love freebie, just in time for Valentine’s Day. I decided to promote my favourite books! There are more than 10, so it took me a while to narrow them down! But here they are…

As ever, click on the book image to take you to Goodreads!

Me Before You- Jojo Moyes

Me Before You (Me Before You, #1)

This book will always be one of my favourites. It broke me! I didn’t enjoy the sequel as much which was a shame.

Lord Of The Flies- William Golding

Lord of the Flies

I first read this at school and I’ve reread it numerous times since.

To Kill A Mockingbird- Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird

Another school read that I’ve reread often!

Rebecca- Daphne Du Maurier


I adore this classic ❤

Goodnight Mister Tom- Michelle Magorian

Goodnight Mister Tom

A very special, moving book.

One- Sarah Crossan


I absolutely adored this book about conjoined twins.

A Monster Calls- Patrick Ness

A Monster Calls

Another heart-breaker!

Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda- Becky Albertalli

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Love, love, love. I am so intrigued to see what the film is like.

The Girl Who Walked On Air- Emma Carroll

The Girl Who Walked On Air

Most of Emma Carroll’s books could’ve made this list.

Reasons To Stay Alive- Matt Haig

Reasons to Stay Alive

I adore how raw this book is. A very special read.

  1. What a great list! I love Rebecca, and Mockingbird, and Me Before You, and… well, lots! Have you read any of Matt Haig’s fiction? I haven’t read the book you list, but I’ve read a few of his novels, and absolutely love his writing style and the heart he puts into his stories.

  2. ‘Rebecca’ is one of my all time favourites and I could read it again and again. The film, no matter which adaptation, although the black and white original is probably the most spooky, is also a must see over and over for me.

    ‘Lord Of The Flies’ I haven’t read since my school days, so seeing it included in your post has re-kindled my interest. I do have one of those leather bound, reader’s digest, show copies somewhere I’m sure, so I’m off to see if I can’t find it!!

    Thanks for the lovely post and sorry I don’t have a link of my own to contribute 🙂


    • Aw that’s okay, Yvonne! It’s nice to read your opinions anyway! 🙂 I hope you enjoy Lord of The Flies if you do decide to dip into it. I was super impressed by it at school and during my rereads!

  3. Goodness!! I *still* have to give “Me Before You” a chance… *note to self: make 2018 THE year you read “Me Before You”* Also, been curious about “One” since the cover reveal. Someday I must read that one. 🙂

    Thanks so much for the comment and visit to Finding Wonderland, Chrissi.

  4. Ah, Me Before You – so many tears. I tear up just thinking about it! I have yet to read the sequel, something stops me from picking it up.

    Rebecca is one of my favourite classics too, and one that I reread quite often!

  5. To Kill A Mockingbird!! Yaas! Absolute favorite of mine!!
    I’m kind of sad though that I didn’t read anything else on the list, but there’s always hope for doing that in the future. Ugghh… I just hate how there isn’t enough time in the world to take all of these beautiful books into my heart!!

Comments make me smile and I love to reply to them! Thanks for visiting today!
