Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven't Talked About Enough/In A While

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week a new Top Ten list is posted which anyone can take part in. 
This week the list is: Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven't Talked About Enough/In A While

1) The Wolf Wilder by Katherine Rundell
I really loved this book when I read it and I definitely don't talk about it enough. I don't know if it is the Russian setting or the feisty main character, Feodora, or the unbreakable bond between her and the wolves, but it was such a beautiful book and everyone should read it. 
2) The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
I'm a huge Holly Black fan, probably more than I am a fan of Cassandra Clare. With each book she writes, her stories just gets better and better. This was an amazing book last year and I don't think it got the attention it deserved. 
3) Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I still can't get over how this book blew me away when I read it. The storyline is just so amazing and I honestly did not see the ending coming. For weeks after I was completely gobsmacked by it.
4) Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson
This book is definitely one of my all time favourite YA novels. Sarah Alderson really knows how to write sizzling relationships. It's the type of book that grabs you from the first page and never lets you go. 
5) Entangled by Cat Clarke
This was one of the first YA books that I ever read and one I will never forget it. I've been a huge fan of Cat Clarke's ever since. She really is an extremely talented author, writing stories that bury away into your heart and leave you with an almighty book hangover. 
6) The Reindeer Girl by Holly Webb
Every year, Holly Webb brings out a stunningly beautiful wintery tale for Christmas. This is by far my favourite of all of them. Alongside the  enchanting illustrations, Holly Webb takes you on a journey to a magical place, where you don't want to leave. Every child should have a Holly Webb book in their stocking at Christmas.
7) One by Sarah Crossan
By far one of my most favourite reads of 2015. Seriously if you read one book from last year, then make it this one. Written completely in verse, you become completely wrapped up in the lives of the conjoined twins. This book should win a lot of the awards it is up for this year. 
8) Jessica's Ghost by Andrew Norris
I was surprised by how much I loved this book. I had never read anything by Andrew Norriss before and now I am a total fan. This book deals with friendship in a beautiful and unusual way. It is about to come out in paperback and definitely one I would recommend everyone reading. 
9) This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
This book is one I love to recommend to people. Especially to an adult who is venturing into the world of YA. It has a real 80's vibe to it and it reminds me of the films I loved to watch as a teenager. 
10) Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
This is one of those books you never want to leave. Such a beautiful story set in Australia, that makes you love the characters from the first page. A book that shows you that you should never be afraid to show the real you. 
So that's my Top Ten Books that I really love but haven't talked about enough or in a while. I could have add loads more but we know we would have been here all day.
