TOP TEN TUESDAY
March 29, 2016
It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was Ten of the Best Books I’ve Read Recently
I love these kinds of topics because I’m always anxious to recommend some good books and it’s great to be able to share what I’ve read recently all in one place! My recent favorite reads are a bit of a mix of old and new and that makes it even better!
REBEL OF THE SANDS by Alwyn Hamilton | This book was fantastic!! There were so many good things going on — characters, plot, world-building, friendships, swoons. I absolutely loved it.
ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Stephanie Perkins | This was a re-read (naturally) and I’m still so in love with this book! ANNA is still one of my all-time favorite contemporary books.
NO MORE CONFESSIONS by Louise Rozett | Louise Rozett’s books are so under the radar but books you definitely need to check out if you love realistic fiction! The relationships and characters are amazing.
THE CROWN’S GAME by Evelyn Skye | I had so much fun reading THE CROWN’S GAME! I’m so glad I read it early and can’t wait to celebrate its release! (Also, I need more books, please.)
BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE by Maggie Stiefvater | This was a re-read as well, in preparation for THE RAVEN KING. Whew boy, all those feels just came flooding back. I cannot wait for the last book! (But I’m also terrified.)
WITH MALICE by Eileen Cook | WITH MALICE was a great thriller with a psychological twist. I loved the unreliable narrator (she has lost a piece of her memory) and it was a great read overall!
26 KISSES by Anna Michels | Oh, this book was so cute. Perfect for summer, perfect for contemporary readers, and just what I needed!
STARS ABOVE by Marissa Meyer| Naturally I’m in love with STARS ABOVE. I always need more Lunar Chronicles in my life and that epilogue! It made me soar.
THE WINNER’S KISS by Marie Rutkoski | This series was just so, so well-done. I’m so pleased with the ending and how the characters grew separately as well as together. Marie Rutkoski did an amazing job and THE WINNER’S KISS wraps up with excitement and satisfaction.
THE LOVE THAT SPLIT THE WORLD by Emily Henry | I thought this book was just beautiful and I’m such a sucker for parallel universes. Add in some WALK TWO MOONS feels and I’m all in.
