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

I don’t know if I’m getting fussier with my 5 stars or I’ve just not read as many blow me away books this year, but I had to add some 4 star reads to make this up to ten. However, the quality of some of my 4 star reads has been stellar, so I’ll lean towards fussiness, rather than a declining quality in books. Here are my top picks read this year, in no particular order…
