Melissa Wright's Challenge: List Top 5 Fav Books

This was tough to choose. I mean, it was easy for #1 most fav, as well as #2, but the rest, it was tough. I barely stopped myself from filling the list with all the Neil Gaiman books (I adore them all), and then there were those I didn't list, and now it's bugging me, but I had to choose only 3 more.

Anyway, the books on my top 5 favs list are:

1. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
2. I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
3. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
4. The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima
5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern


  Update #2:

So far, I participated in 5 more challenges, the 2 hosted by Laurie Larsen & Melissa Wright, and the 3 hosted by Tressa: Book Cover Opposites, Book Cover Challenge & Color Challenge. I also read one novella, one full-length novel & one short story:

Final Update:

And at last, I finished one of my previously started books:

...and that's a wrap. I managed to complete my #TackleTBR goals!
