Hi friends! So usually I do Top 5 Tuesday but for today Shanah chose to do 10 books instead of 5! Which is good because I’m already going to curl up into a ball and reconsider all my reading life choices! Hooray*!
*can you sense the sarcasm and see the life go out of my eyes
I think I like Crooked Kingdom even more than Six of Crows but I’m not entirely sure since I’ve only read them once…three years ago. I KNOW I NEED TO REREAD OKAY THEY’RE STILL MY FAVORITES ASDFGHJKL.
I love all the Lunar Chronicles books to death but Cress is so freaking good. THORNE. DESERT. SHIPS. How can you not love this book???
There’s something about this book that grabbed me and didn’t let go. It was far more than a romance (although that was great too) and was far more emotional than I was expecting. I LOVE IT SO MUCH.
I still haven’t read the fifth and final book (whoops) but the skull is so sassy. And I really, really, really ship Lockwood and Lucy. And there’s ghosts. I’m in love*.
*not with those ghosts with the book. just thought i’d clarify.
Dark academia is such a random, tiny genre that wouldn’t seem like it’d be up my alley. Also I’ve only ever read one Shakespeare play, so logically I should have hated this dark academia Shakespearean novel. But I’m not logical so haha read this.
does this really need an explanation?
I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS AN ALL-TIME FAVORITE BUT CARDAN AND POLITICS AND JUDE AND CARDAN AND PLOT TWISTS. Also Cardan and Jude. And aethestic covers.
Basically, this entire trilogy is everything to me. Everything. Clockwork Prince is my possible favorite of all of them though, because while it’s slow, it’s so emotional. I cry constantly just thinking about this series.
By which I mean Queen of Shadows. The first four books to this series were incredible but Queen of Shadows blew everything away. And then the fifth book came along and ruined the good thing we had going on but we aren’t going to talk about that…
This is my favorite of the series so far, but I enjoyed all of them! The characters in this series are so incredibly complex, and there’s a ton of darkness in this book. Yet, the dark parts make the hope and optimism and pure moments all the better.
So that’s it! Tell me: what are your all-time favorite books???
