Hello my lovelies! Here we are with another Top 10 Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About – celebrating the books we liked that might have fallen under the radar of our bookish enthusiasm or that I feel that I haven’t given enough love.
Anthropology of an American Girl by Hilary Thayer Hamann
I read this book in college in and it blew my mind. At the time I remember thinking it was so beautiful and profound and was a new style of writing for me to enjoy.
The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen
I shamelessly loved this book. I found it when I first got my kindle and read it in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down. Was it the best literary story? No. But man was it engaging.
Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot
I do talk about Meg Cabot a lot, but this series in particular I loved.
Something Wicked by Nicole M. Rubino
This was one of those books that was a 4 star read (because of some magic clarity), but gave me a book hangover anyways. I loved the characters and the story and I am excited to see what happens in book 2.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
I know I was way behind the curve with this series, but I really enjoyed it and don’t think I have talked about it much on my blog. I did a buddy read with Garan at Goblet of Fiction for this one and it was so much fun.
Crown of Coral and Pearl by Mara Rutherford
The world in this book was so unique and cool and I don’t think I hyped it enough when I read it.
Only a Breath Apart by Katie McGarry
This book started off my 2019 reading and it was so good. I read it really quickly and loved the characters and subtle supernatural elements.
A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
I know a lot of people love this book, but I don’t think that I have given it enough love on my blog. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale, and this retelling was so good.
House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig
Another fairy tale that I love is the 12 Dancing Princesses and this retelling was really cool and spooky.
Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim
I loved this story. It reminded me of old legends and yet was still super fresh at the same time.
