Readers Favorite Books

I did a giveaway on my Instagram (@TBRetc) to celebrate my 1 year blog/Bookstagram anniversary (congrats to the winner, dani_reads94!) It was so fun! I chose to give away my favorite book I've read so far this year, The Hate U Give, along with a notebook, bookmark, and page darts. The best part was seeing everyone comment and interact with me. Entries came in from all over the world! Oddly enough, (and happily, for my wallet!) a participant that lives in the same state as me won.

One of the things I asked participants to do to enter was to comment their favorite book of the year and their favorite book of all time. I got such a wide variety of comments, ranging from some of my own favorites to books I'd never heard of! Since I love lists and book recommendations, I thought I'd put the favorites list together. There were a lot- 110 books total. I know it's hard to pick your favorite book ever- thank you for all those who entered.
