Top Ten Tuesday: To All The Books I've Loved (These Three Years Past)

As always, this feature is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

I really didn't think I would be able to come up with a list for this week's topic. Asking me to pick my favorites of the books I've read these past three years is so, so hard, as I know that I've read so many books that I've fallen in love with! Somehow, perhaps with the help of a little magic (AKA sheer stubborn determination), I've narrowed it down to a list of eight books and two series that I feel are the best choices for my top shelf, lifetime favorite reads.

“Just because you can live without someone doesn’t mean you want to.” 
After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid

"I want that," he said fiercely.
"For you to be around."
Dark Lover by J.R. Ward 

“The end of the story is of your making, nobody else's. You can do with it as you choose. There are as many paths open to your hero as branches on a great tree. They are wonderful and terrible, and plain and twisted. They touch and part and intermingle, and you can follow them whatever way you will.” - Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

“But sometimes life gives us those rare moments where we do see chance as it’s happening. And in those moments, we have a choice. And sometimes we have to take a risk. And it’s scary. It makes us vulnerable. But I know now it’s worth it.” - Golden by Jessi Kirby

"If I only get one life, I don't want to waste it by hesitating.” 
Incarnate / Asunder / Infinite by Jodi Meadows

“Travelling's not something you're good at. It's something you do. Like breathing. You can't work too much at it, or it feels like work. You have to surrender yourself to the chaos. To the accidents.” 
- Just One Day by Gayle Forman

“This is the currency of friendship, traded over years and miles, and I hope it's an even exchange someday. For now, I do what all best friends do when there's nothing left to say. We lie together in all the darkness, shoulder to shoulder, and wait for the worst to be over.” 
Open Road Summer by Emery Lord

"She was the heir of ash and fire, and she would bow to no one."

"To belong to someone—I didn’t know it, but now that I think about, it seems like that’s all I’ve ever wanted. To really be somebody’s, and to have them be mine.” 

"I can't leave any of my books behind. They're the only friends I've ever really had." 
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller
