Now onto the list. The list is ordered in the order that I’ve read them in.
I read her book Truthwitch as soon as it released and then promptly put it on hold for four months. It was kinda lackluster and I nearly gave up on it. I am not really sure whether I am going to continue with the series or not. Even if I decide to I don’t remember any details(wait what even is the main characters name. And here I used to think I’m good at remembering names)

I was totally prepared to be blown away by the writing in I’ll give you the sun because everywhere there were glorious reviews comparing the writing to Laini Taylor but I was really disappointed. The book was too colorful for my taste and it was ‘its not you , its me’ thing.If only the writing did not feel like post-Holi hangover I would’ve liked it a lot more.
Okay I confess this book was a total cover buy, I mean look at it that dress, that typography and everything. The book was really good with strong, diverse characters. To be honest I don’t remember much about this series except that the tiger was named Arin. (Need to add this book to my reread list.)Really look forward to reading any new books by this author.
I had kept the 5th wave as a motivation book during the exam season and the hype around its release made me tick it off my TBR as soon as I had a copy in my hand. But the book was really under whelming and the plot felt too old and repetitive (don’t most dystopia do).Also this book put me in the worst book slump(It’s not like the book was that bad but still…) I 50 pages into the sequel and and it is lying on my side table untouched and collecting dust.
My mom actually gifted me the ‘if I stay’ duology and where she went . And I will recommend this book to anyone who loves reading about families. The most genuine family I’ve ever read about (even though,you know, they were dead) I really need to read the rest of her books. Do they also feature families heavily like if I stay?? also the movie is actually good unlike other book to movie adaptations.
Ohkay I waited too long to read the raven cycle series (I was waiting to binge read the whole series together) and Maggie just made it to my all time favorite author list. If you haven’t read the raven cycle series WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE, GO READ IT ASAP! I’m waiting for winter to read the shiver trilogy since I’m all about seasonal reading ( winters in Mumbai are a big joke though). And also read about the raven boys while its pouring cats and dogs outside, it adds to the creepy factor(Trust me on this).
I don’t read much sci-fi but reading the red rising trilogy made me really appreciate this genre. Also Sevro is the funniest character ever. And I had promised to bloody murder the book( not really because e-book) if he was harmed in the series. The major plus point of this book is that male guy characters in this series sound so guy-like (is this even correct guy-like??)
I am currently reading ice like fire and I think my ship is sinking so umm I can’t function for a few days. Other than that the world building is the best and the it would make any fantasy fan rejoice.
‘More happy than not’ was a highly hyped book and it deserved every inch of the hype. The book was a gem and what beautiful writing .It was real emotional roller coaster and the kind of book I would never recommend it to anyone without giving them a box of tissues. I think Adam is going to turn into an auto buy author for me. His next book is coming in January titled ‘History is all you left me’
So I know the heading above says Top 10 and this list contains only 9 authors but I’ve read just 9 authors and there are still days left in 2016 to rectify this(Hopefully)
