Hi friends! It’s Top 5 Tuesday, which is hosted by the awesome Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm! I’m super excited for this topic, so let’s do this:
Yes, yes I always talk about that this book but IT’S AMAZING! I mean, I thought the premise was cool and all but I don’t listen to the hype right away (sometimes) so I wasn’t going to pick it up but then everyone started talking about it and I was like FINE and yeah now I’m here with a cloak and a ring.
My Lady Jane
I HAD NO CLUE WHAT THIS WAS ABOUT. All I knew was that I’d seen it wafting (?) lazily around the book community, and it was the first book I recognized on Overdrive. So I picked it up on audio and guys again I had no clue what I was getting into. MLJ was funny and unique and something I’d never have read on my own!
The Shadowhunter Chronicles
I’M FREAKING OUT JUST THINKING WHAT MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED IF I NEVER PICKED THESE BOOKS UP AHHH!!! I’m in the middle of Clockwork Prince (at least when I’m writing this post) and it’s just so beautiful. I had no desire to pick up City of Bones until I saw how popular these books really were. I figured, “What’s the harm?” Last words guys. Last words.
Strange The Dreamer
I kept hearing about Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone series (which I still haven’t read go figure) but I saw her newest book in the library. And oh my stars. Her writing is so enchanting and her characters so complex I fell in love!
The Darkest Minds
I just started getting involved in the bookish community last year, so I’m really, really, REALLY LATE TO LIFE. And consequently, totally over the whole “HungerGamesIMeanDivergentIMeanTheMazeRunner” dystopian craze but I kept hearing stuff about this one. An upcoming movie and interviews with the awesome author were the final pushes I needed to scoop up up the book and thank goodness for y’all.
Haha, I was about go in for another book before realizing that I’d already hit five! I really do read a ton of books because of the bookish community so KEEP THOSE RECS COMING (oh, be quiet TBR if I add books to you at least I’ll be paying attention for once)
This was a super fun Top 5 Tuesday! Thank you for reading, and tell me some books you’ve read and enjoyed because of blogs/booktube. Au revoir!
