Top Ten Tuesday - Top Ten Books I've read so far this year

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly theme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

So last week, I did the top ten books on my summer reading list, which is actually this week's topic. So today, I'm doing the one I was supposed to do last week - Top Ten Books I've read so far this year.

That was a really hard topic for me as I've read so many wonderful ones this year. So here they are in no particular order.

1. The Bridge to Haven by Francine Rivers - probably the BEST book I've read so far this year.

2. Saving Amelie by Cathy Gohlke - So rich in history and heart wrenching

3. Here to Stay by Melissa Tagg - another delightful comedy and I really fell for Blake "Blaze"

4. The Pelican Bride by Beth White - A moving historical novel set in Early America

5. Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade - I loved this book. Ty and Celia and little Addie were so fun to read about. 

6. A Broken Kind of Beautiful by Katie Ganshert - another wonderful book by Katie.

7. In the Shadow of Jezebel by Mesu Andrews - I'm not one who usually reads and enjoys Biblical Fiction, yet this is one book that tugged at my heart.

8.  Princess Ever After by Rachel Hauck - I love this series. Seriously I love it. 

9. Worth the Wait by Laura Jackson - Laura's a friend of mine. And I was delighted to read her debut novel back in February. 

10. Dare to Love Again by Julie Lessman - Filled with characters that are spunky and delightful, I know that a Julie Lessman book will always delight me. 


  1. a beauty so rare/morning glory by sarah jio/latest miss julie>annb ross:latest deb macomber,melody carlson 4 lindas series and inn at shining water series.

  2. Yes, great list, Dawn. I adored Becky's, Melissa's was darling and of course, Katie's was beautiful. Plus, like you, I love Rachel's new series. It's just charming. :)

  3. Thanks for including Worth the Wait!

  4. Great list! If I haven't read them yet then the books are on my TBR list! I'm really hoping I can figure out a way to read A Broken Kind of Beautiful.

    1. Rina, Broken Kind of Beautiful was really beautiful.
