Top Ten Tuesday: Blog Favourites


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. I heart lists!

This weeks' Top Ten is: Top Ten Favorite Books You've Read During The Lifespan Of Your Blog



The First Days by Rhiannon Frater

This was a re-read, but Rhiannon Frater is one of my most favourite zombie authors - I've yet to read a book of hers that I don't LOVE, and The First Days is all about Girl Power during the Zomb-apocalypse.

The Review


This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers

Easily one of my most-lusted-after books in 2012, and it didn't disappoint. A new Courtney Summers fan was born.

The Review



Zombie Fallout by Mark Tufo

Another re-read, but the Zombie Fallout series remains one of my first, and most loved zombie reads. Look out for a Zombie Fallout 3 review soon!

The Review



Meat by Joseph D'Lacey

Originally listened to on audiobook, I had to read it in print - easily one of the most shocking, thought-provoking books I've reviewed here!

The Review



Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

I had low expectations for this one - YA-horror-romance = impossible. I've never been happier to have been proven wrong! And Cas is easily my favourite male character of 2012!

The Review


Rapture by Phillip W. Simpson

One of the first 5 star reviews on my blog, and will always be one of my favourite reads - eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

The Review



Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan

Proving that self-published can be better than traditionally published, Jenny Pox is one of the best Kindle freebies I've ever had the honour to read.

The Review



Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

Forbidden is the first book that ever reduced me to sobbing tears of sadness. 'Nuff said.

The Review



Battle Royale by Koushun Takami

An overwhelming character list didn't put me off - long rumoured as the inspiration for The Hunger Games, in my opinion Battle Royale is far superior - gorier, more intense, and no-holds-barred.

The Review


Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry

Jonathan Maberry is one of the most prolific zombie authors out there, and Dead of Night showcases exactly why - a tough, flawed heroine, a creepy, action-packed, unique story-line - what more could a zombie book need?

The Review




Anyone surprised at the amount of zombie in there? What are your favourite reviews on your blog (or Goodreads!)?

  1. Loving your list. We have a few of the same. Of course, I cheated and went over 10. As always. I can never follow the rules.

    1. Keeping to just ten is really hard. I've got some great reviews coming up in the next week that would have totally had me cheating too.

  2. Awesome choices, I just read Jenny Pox and it was so good! The First Days and Anna Dressed in Blood were also great.

    1. Well ya know, I have to cover all the bases for those crazy non-zombie loving peeps!

      You must read Forbidden!

  5. I can safely say that the only one on your list that I've read is Battle Royale (I totally loooooved the movie). If you haven't already picked up the Morningstar Strain trilogy by Z.A. Recht, I highly recommend it (or at least the first two books).

    1. The Morningstar Strain trilogy was actually what really got me loving zombies! I've got the last book in the series to read, but I want to try and re-read the first two beforehand - now I just have to FIND them!

  6. I haven't read any of the books you listed. Drat! Now I am more convinced than every that I will NEVER get all the books I want to read read, even if I read every moment of the day for a lifetime.

  8. I've got This is Not a Test and Zombie Fallout on my TBR list because of your reviews of them. I think I added Rapture to it too. Great list.

    Check out my TTT if you have time.
