Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, she posts an idea relating to books and encourages other book bloggers to respond with their own top ten lists.
This week’s topic is “my ten most recent reads.” I’ve only read 24 books total so far this year, but I’ve loved almost all of them. Here are the last 10 I read:
Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert
Absolutely charming, as expected. I think Eve’s story might be my favourite of all of the sisters’, but I’ll have to re-read the series to confirm.
Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson
I do still think that A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder could have been a standalone, but this was another solid mystery that I finished in one sitting.
The Duke and I by Julia Quinn
I enjoyed this for the most part, and now I am very curious to see how the other Bridgerton siblings’ stories play out.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I had to reread this before the Netflix show aired (which I still have to finish watching…), and I’m still 100% of the opinion that this duology was infinitely better than the original Grisha trilogy.
Siege and Storm & Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
I did a Shadow and Bone reread towards the end of 2020, but figured I should finish these two before starting on my Six of Crows reread. Still don’t like Mal or his tattoo so we’ll see if the show changes my mind!
The Divines by Ellie Eaton
Picked this up because of the cover and was pretty underwhelmed. I expected more substance and drama to the boarding school pieces, and the present-day parts just didn’t work for me.
In Five Years by Rebecca Serle
This book went in a completely different direction than I expected, and it was heartbreakingly beautiful.
A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik
The premise was interesting, but there’s so much exposition and info-dumping that it took a very long time for me to warm up to it.
The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
I can certainly see why everyone was raving about this last year!
