Top Ten Tuesday: My daughter’s favorite reads from the past 12 months

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week is a Freebie week, so we all come up with our own topics. Since my wonderful, amazing, book-loving daughter is home this week, I thought I’d make her the star, and have her pick her top 10 reads from the past year.

Here are the books she’s loved recently:

(She couldn’t quite narrow it down to 10, so here are the 11 top books!)

  1. Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory by Raphael Bob-Waksberg
  2. The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
  3. Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
  4. Milk Blood Heat by Dantiel W. Moniz
  5. Happily Ever Afters by Elise Bryant
  6. Umami by Laia Jufresa
  7. Yes Please by Amy Poehler
  8. The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air trilogy) by Holly Black
  9. Good Talk by Mira Jacobs
  10. Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
  11. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

Have you read any of these? If so, what did you think? (I’ve read 5 of her 11, and clearly need to read at least a few of the others!)

If you did a TTT post this week, please share your link!

  1. Great list, and it seems like the two of you enjoy some of the same books! I’ve read Mexican Gothic and The Cruel Prince and enjoyed both of them😁

  2. Isn’t Umami a Japanese word for some kind of savory flavor? I wonder what that book is about. But even more curious about Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory – what an amazing title/ wish and seriously, who doesn’t want that?

    • I have to ask my daughter more about Umami! She didn’t tell me much about it, but from what I’ve seen so far, it’s by a Mexican author, published in translation. I do love the “Who Will Love You…” title! She says it’s a collection of short stories, which wouldn’t usually draw me in, but that title is amazing and she says it’s really good. (The author is the creator of Bojack Horseman, which she’s a big fan of).
