Hi everyone! I never do Top Ten Tuesday as my schedule is the most hectic on Tuesdays, but I had a holiday today so decided to do it.
TOP TEN TUESDAY is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.
honestly, today’s topic was top 10 books to read if your book club likes _______, but since I KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING of book clubs, I decided to do what Lindsey was doing. (hope it is alright!!)
SO LET US START. *a million drum rolls*
- THE INFERNAL DEVICES TRILOGY BY CASSANDRA CLARE.
DOES ONE DAY GO BY WHEN I DO NOT MENTION THE SHADOWHUNTERS? (spoilers-no)
I just cannot help it. well some reasons why I want to discuss this series is the issues I have with some of the characters. Also, Will Herondale. Enough Said. (I doubt I am the only one who has a huge crush on him.) oh also, I have SO MANY crackpot theories about The Last Hours trilogy (which is the sequel to TID) AND GOD KNOWS WHEN IT WILL RELEASE.
2. THRONE OF GLASS SERIES BY THE ALMIGHTY SARAH J. MAAS
I have wayyy too many issues with this series. the way it is heading now (TOO MANY SEX SCENES!!!!) just no. #stahp
I won’t say anything else right now but maybe do a separate post about it one day.
3. LITTLE WOMEN BY LOUISA MAY ALCOTT
My 12 year old shippy heart wasn’t the only one which broke completely after Laurie’s proposal and also, when Jo marries that hundred year old professor (whose name I do not even remember #sorrynotsorry)
4.) THE STAR-TOUCHED QUEEN BY ROSHANI CHOKSHI
Last week only I told you all that I did not enjoy this book at all. I would like to discuss the issues in a more professional way, #AMIRIGHT (ah well, of course I am)
5.) AM I NORMAL YET BY HOLLY BOURNE
this book is so truthful, so raw, just I can’t recommend it enough. GO READ IT NOW. also, it offers such a realistic insight into OCD and mental illness. the book is filled with feminism and that ending had me BAWLING HARD.
6.) MY LADY JANE BY BRODI ASHTON, JODI MEADOWS AND CYNTHIA HAND
THIS BOOK IS SOOOOOOOOOOO FUNNY, YOU WILL REMEMBER THE JOKES FOREVER.
some of them-
1.) “No horse jokes,” he said.
“My lord, I apologize for the horse joke. If you put down the book—unharmed!—I will give you a carrot.”
He brandished the book at her. “Was that a horse joke?”
“Was that a horse joke?”
2.) “He pretended to stretch his arms, in order to shift even closer to her. (This isn’t in the history books, of course, but we’d like to point out that this was the first time a young man had ever tried that particular arm-stretch move on a young woman. Edward was the inventor of the arm stretch, a tactic that teenage boys have been using for centuries.)”
I TOLD YOU SO.
7.) SHADOW AND BONE BY LEIGH BARDUGO
I also have a review, so go check that out, and if you have already read it, then you know how much I lurved this book. the food. the dresses. The Darkling. How much I hate Mal. You know, all important topics. (also I haven’t read the rest of the books in this trilogy but I know who Alina ends up with and I cry thinking about it)
8.) TRUTHWITCH BY SUSAN DENNARD
I DESCRIBE MY FEELINGS FOR THIS BOOK IN THIS POST SO check it out! the reasons why I hated this book were that there was no plot whatsoever, just roaming here and there plus NO WORLD BUILDING. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU TRUTHWITCH? Many people lurve this book so I would like to chat with them to know why they like it.
9.) THE RAVEN BOYS BY MAGGIE STIEFVATER
again I have a review for this one. (p.s the review was my first one so it is kind of trashy. YE HAVE BEEN WARNED) ASDFGHJK I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH.
AND THE RAVEN BOYS
AND JANE (lol if you read it you know what I am talking about)
plus more people need to read this series (again I have only read the first book)
I CANNOT FORCE YOU ENOUGH TO READ THIS SERIES
10.) HARRY POTTER SERIES BY J.K ROWLING
WE CAN HAVE OUR YEARLY REREADS AT CHRISTMAS AND IT WOULD BE THE BEST THING EVER.
So that is it!
tell me- have you read any of the above books? are you in a book club? do you think that there are some books that you desperately need to discuss with someone?
