My 25 Favourite Books of the Decade

Since it’s almost the end of the decade, I didn’t want to just share my favourite reads of 2019, but also my top 25 of the best books I read during the past 10 years.

They are (more of less) in order of when I read them. Which is kind of funny, I think, because it shows how much my reading has shifted over the past few years.

By the way, this doesn’t quite span 10 years, but starts in 2014, when I first started my Goodreads account and started tracking my reading.

Top 25 of the Decade

  1. Emma Donoghue – Room
  2. David Mitchell – The Bone Clocks
  3. Toni Morrison – Beloved
  4. Ian McEwan – Atonement
  5. Kazuo Ishiguro – Never Let Me Go
  6. Harper Lee – To Kill a Mockingbird
  7. Donna Tartt – The Goldfinch
  8. Stephen Chbosky – The Perks of Being a Wallflower
  9. Hanya Yanagihara – A Little Life
  10. Madeline Miller – The Song of Achilles
  11. Erin Morgenstern – The Night Circus
  12. Jen Wilde – Queens of Geek
  13. Becky Albertalli – The Upside of Unrequited
  14. Angie Thomas – The Hate U Give
  15. S.A. Chakraborty – The City of Brass
  16. S.E. Hinton – The Outsiders
  17. Katherine Arden – The Bear and the Nightingale

  1. It’s hard to believe that some of these only came out this decade! This is a wonderful list, and I love that you included a range of genres and age groups. And the last six are all favorite books of mine, so I DEFINITELY agree with them! 😄
