This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie week so I decided to do a list of my favorite books that I’ve read so far this year, as I was planning to make a post like this anyway.
As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Links will send you to the reviews I’ve posted!
Beware: this is a review from when I first started blogging so it’s not in a great format haha
This is an alternate history book that includes women in combat during WWII. It has a fairly diverse cast of characters with multiple POVs, one from a Jewish girl and one from a black girl. I really enjoyed this book a lot and can’t wait to see where the rest of the series takes it.
I won a giveaway of book 2 in this series so I picked up the first one and was really surprised by how much I liked it. I hadn’t read any YA contemporary/romance in quite a long time but this was a great book to get back into it. There’s a perfect mix of fluff and heartbreak. I still haven’t read book 2 (ugh, I’m the worst), but I can’t wait to finally get to it.
This is about a girl who is mortal in a world full of basically immortal people. I got an ARC from Month9Books and absolutely loved it. It’s a great sci-fi book and quite fast-paced. You definitely won’t get bored. If you are even the slightest sci-fi fan, give this book a shot.
This is another one I got from Month9Books that I ended up really enjoying. This was the first dystopian I had read in quite awhile and it did not disappoint. It’s very fast-paced and hard to put down. I was hooked from the beginning until the end.
This is a book I had been meaning to read for ages and I noticed that my library had it so I took it out and was blown away by it. It deals with some very tough topics and my heart was breaking the whole time. It does end on a positive note though!
A book with a fat MC that doesn’t end with said MC losing weight and “becoming beautiful”? Sign me up. I loved this book a lot more than I thought I would (I originally didn’t even want to read it honestly).
We all know I love Ruta Sepetys. Her latest book tells the story of a few refugees and the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff. As always, Sepetys wrote the story beautifully.
After hearing what seems like a billion people raving about ADSOM, I finally read it. I was worried it wasn’t going to live up to the hype, but that thankfully wasn’t an issue. Now I need to get A Gathering of Shadows and then join the wait for A Conjuring of Light.
Barclay Publicity sent me a copy of this to review and I’ll be honest: I think I loved this way more than I should have. It definitely has flaws and certainly could have been edited more. But I loved it regardless. I think a big factor was just that it was completely different from what I had been reading recently and that helped me enjoy it a lot more.
Another Sepetys novel. This is actually probably my favorite of hers which is saying something considering it’s her only book that’s not WWII historical fiction and I am a huge fan of WWII historical fiction. I just loved the setting and the characters. I highly recommend reading this book.
That’s all for this TTT! If you made a TTT post this week, link to it in the comments below and I’ll check it out.
