Tag Tuesday: Top 5 Books I Don’t Talk About Enough! // ft. guilty me

Hi friends! I’m here to give some books a chance in the spotlight, because looking back my posts are exclusively composed of:

1. Shadowhunters

2. Harry Potter

3. If We Were Villains

It’s a problem, that we’re here to rectify. If you want to participate, don’t forget this is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm!

I four-starred this book but I still think it deserves more hype. I mean, we have a diverse cast of characters trying to overthrow an all-seeing, all-powerful government. Tell me that doesn’t intrigue you. Also, it’s a standalone fantasy! We love us some good standalones!

I don’t read much historical fiction, or realistic fiction, mainly because I get so bored. But there was absolutely no chance of being bored here. This was shocking and powerful and heartbreaking. It blows my mind because the events in this book, the horribly honest story of girls kidnapped and brainwashed, only took place five years ago. I don’t sing its praises often enough. But be aware that this isn’t for everyone! Please look up a complete list of content and trigger warnings!

Few middle-grade books achieve Harry Potter feels for me. But Peter Nimble blindly stole my heart* and I’m so grateful. This has magic! And hilarious sidekicks! And a lovely plot that feels so good and I just need to give it more love.

*if you’ve read this book and get the reference, i love you forever

This is so controversial but I actually love this book. I read this back in my younger days* and the first chapter shook me to my core. My main memories of this consist of me laughing hysterically over Johnny’s obsession with Italian blue toilets and me finishing the book and crying for three days. I forgot how much I enjoyed this until just now wow.

*ah, the good old days where i didn’t pay attention to hype and rated everything five stars

In between me screaming about The Lunar Chronicles and flailing over Renegades, this little gem gets passed over a lot. All I knew going into this was Marissa Meyer and Alice in Wonderland, so when I say that the ending shocked me I mean it. There’s something special about going into a story blind and I really do still love this book! Cath’s baking is everything and I WILL roll down a hill into a ditch if it means getting one of her lemon tarts.

And that’s it! Did I surprise anyone? Tell me some books you don’t talk about as much as you should!

  1. I haven’t actually… Read these
    books but that Peter Nimble one looks interesting?? I have more books to read so that’s GREAT!

    But I definitely don’t talk about literally any other book that I own as much as I should. I should probably reread every book I own sometime.

    And blue toilets are definitely a good thing to obsess over!!
