1. Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1) by Susan Ee – It’s hard when you love so many books and so many different genres to remember all your oldest favorites…and Angefall has always been my second favorite book of all time. I mean…RAFFE! ♥

2. The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness – Action, peril, heartache, betrayal, war…I could NEVER talk about this series enough. Never. My young Todd Hewitt, oh how I adore you.

3. The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater – This series, admittedly, took me by surprise. It didn’t seem like my style, but this author showed me I don’t have a style, not really, because this magical adventure of mystery and forbidden (and deadly) young love became an instant favorite-Beautiful, poignant, and unforgettable-I will always cherish and adore it. And, you know, again, Gansey. lol.

4. Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss #1) by Stephanie Perkins – Yet another book that took me by surprise. I don’t much care for books like these, yet the charming and delightful cast of characters (COUGH ST. CLAIR AND ANNA COUGH) enraptured me from the beginning…leaving me breathless at each and every turn. I often forget about my adorable boy, but it doesn’t take me long to remember WHY this is an absolute favorite forever.

5. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover – -Oh lord….my only unforgettable from Colleen Hoover. And if it wasn’t for that fact that makes it stick out, I STILL wouldn’t forget it because of its gripping characters and what they go through to end up together-and happy-in the end. I ADORE this beautiful book, and I just don’t talk about it enough anymore. MILES MILES MILES…whatever will I do with you?

6. Come Back to Me (Come Back to Me #1) by Mila Gray – An emotional powerhouse that was one of my favorite books last year!  Gut wrenching, heart crushing, ugly sobbing exploded from me, and there was no stopping it.  I became that emotionally invested.  But have faith, because by that last page my heart pieced itself back together, and I closed the book with a smile on my face.

7. Forever with You (Wait for You #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout – I thought the 1st book, Wait for You, was my favorite.  But then I read Stephanie & Nick’s story and it officially become my favorite book in the Wait For You series!  Give me a heroine who I will love, give me a tortured man who will steal my breath away, give me fiery chemistry, give me a story that is all-consuming and I will fall in love with every single page.  And that I did!

8. Broken Skies (Broken Skies #1) by Theresa Kay – If you loved The Lux Series by JLA, then you’ll definitely love this book too!  What started out as a simple journey, escalated into something that kept me on the edge of my seat!  The pages were scattered with hardships and butterfly inducing moments that were breathtaking.  I never wanted this book about humans and aliens to end.

The Union by T.H. Hernandez

9. The Union (The Union #1) by T.H. Hernandez – This series is a romantic adventure set one hundred years after the second civil war, and I am OBSESSED!  It contains a heroine that has a ton of fire in her, a sigh inducing book boyfriend, love that rings true because it’s passionate and broken at times, friendships that are deep and meaningful and also a character I love to hate – yes I have issues ha!

10. Blurred Lines by Lauren Layne – A truly intoxicating friendship to lovers story.  It was sexy, the banter was hilarious, and the elements of friendship and love were touching and done brilliantly.

These are some Books We Love But Haven’t Talked About In A While.  What are some of yours?

    Yey Ugly Love!! That’s a great one. Sadly, I haven’t read any of these other books. I really need to read Angelfall and Anna and the French Kiss though. Those have been on my to read list for ages it feels like!

      I need to read Angelfall and Anna and the French Kiss also! Although Angelfall made me a little nervous so I’m waiting for my husband’s traveling for work to slow down before I finish that series because I’m a huge BABY lol!

      Ugly Love is a great one, though! And the others?? AMAZING! Hope you enjoy them when you can get to them 🙂 🙂

    I also wasn’t a very big fan of the cheesy type of YA novels, but then I came across Stephanie Perkins books, and I FELL IN LOVE! My favorite would have to be Lola and The Boy Next Door. Hands Down! <3 Cricket <3
    Great TOP TEN! 😀
    My TTT.

      Me either!!! I don’t find these types of books to be cheesy (if done right) so much as cutesy. Which I love every now and again!

      Now, for me, it’s St. Clair all the way 😛 Obviously

  3. Sinead @ Less Reality More Books

    Ahhh Anna!!! I love that series, it’s simply the cutest contemporary book series EVER. Have you read the sequels? They’re just as cute and awesome (although Anna will always be my favourite)!

    And Forever With You made me cry, it was so heart breaking. JLA truly has a gift for writing. Great list!

      Forever With You made me cry too! I can’t wait for The Problem With Forever, I have a feeling we both might cry for that book too, it sounds very emotional. ♥

    • Chelsea (Peril Please)

      I did!! They definitely didn’t touch me in the same way…but I still loved their quirkiness 🙂

      Anna will ALWAYS be my favorite, like you! ♥

  4. T.H. Hernandez

    I’m in kind of a book slump, but now that I’m binge-watching Outlander, I gotta say that’s probably my swoon-worthy-I-haven’t-talked-about-in-ages-but-might-need-to-revisit-to-remind-me-why-I-love-it-so book.

    I’m looking forward to reading Anna & The French Kiss in the next couple of weeks 🙂 My TTT

      Ahhh I hope you love it, Carrie!! I certainly will always have a soft spot for the adorable St. Clair!!! 😀

  6. Samantha

    I love the Wait for you series but forever with you was my least favorite. I just couldn’t connect with it! And The Raven Boys has been on my TBR forever! I really need to read that one!

    • Jen

      I thought that I’d be in that same boat, since it was about Stephanie and she had been with Cam and Jase, but shockingly I loved it the most. 🙂 The Raven Boys have been on my TBR forever too! Lucky for us we won’t have to wait for the final book since it comes out next month, yay!

  7. T.H. Hernandez

    Obsidian! And Onyx and Opal and Origin. Origin might be my fave of the series. Do you know I still haven’t finished Opposition. It just lost my interest mid-way through. Tell me it’s worth slugging through.

    • Jen

      See. This is where I don’t know. I adore every single thing JLA writes. I buy all of her books before they have even been released. But Chels and Anna, on here, fell out of love with her writing. So I can’t give a 100% confidence that you’ll love, but I loved every single tiny detail in that last book.

    • Chelsea (Peril Please)

      NOT to step on toes here-Jen knows I adore her-but just to be totally TOTALLY unbiased here, I believe it’s not so much that Daemon and Kat aren’t worth it (I’ll never forget them as long as I live), but that the end felt unrealistic and rushed. BUT….not everyone agrees with that, while a lot do. It’s a matter of personal preference, as you can see between Jen and I! 🙂
