Favorite Books Released in the Last Ten Years

Oh, goodness. This is a hard topic. Narrowing my favorite books released in the last 10 years. More specifically, 1 book for each year...this is going to be hard. There were so many books that I have discovered in the last 10 years. 

Let's jump into this and see where it will take us.
I may not have read these books the year they came out, but I really enjoyed them when I did get to them!

There are a couple of years where I reached over 100 books, so it might be hard to narrow it down. 

by Michelle Moran
Before I started blogging, I was looking for all sorts of historical fiction. I stumbled on Michelle Moran's stories by accident. Her stories were really detailed and captivating. This one I really enjoyed!

Courting Marrow Little
by Laura Frantz
Laura Frantz is one of my all time favorite authors!

by Lisa T. Bergren
Lisa T. Bergren writes some very fun adventure stories!
This one got me hooked!

Against the Tide
by Elizabeth Camden
This was not my first story to read by Elizabeth Camden, but it's the one that hooked me to her stories.

Dear Mr. Knightly
by Katherine Reay
One of the best debuts I've ever read, and Katherine Reay has become a favorite. Just finished reading her newest book, The Printed Letter Bookshop.

A full year of reading this year!
Honorable Mentions:
A Noble Groom by Jody Hedlund
Stealing the Peacher by Karen Witemeyer
Widow of Gettysburg by Jocelyn Green

Price of Privilege
by Jessica Dotta
Oh, my goodness...this conclusion, to this series! Holy, Moly!
This is a year, where I had read so many....
honorable mentions:
The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn by Lori Benton
The Sentinels of Andersonville by Tracy Groot
Storm Siren by Mary Weber

The Pharaoh's Daughter
by Mesu Andrews
This was such an interesting look at the story of Moses. It was from a new angle and it was fascinating and intense!

Counted with Stars
by Connilyn Cossette
This is another telling of the story of the Exodus, from a whole different angle. It was really a fabulous telling and fantastic debut!

by Jocelyn Green
Jocelyn Green is one of my favorite authors. She can pick a time in history and make it pop. She makes the setting pop and her character flow seamlessly through it. 

Falling for You
by Becky Wade
Becky Wade is one of my favorite contemporary authors. Falling for You was a story I could connect with. Her characters are so real, they deal with so many real life issues. 

As far as 2019, we are only half way through, time will tell, but there have already been many fabulous stories!! I can't wait to see what the rest of the year will bring. 

What are your top stories from the last 10 years?
Did you have a hard time as well with this topic?
