hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl
hi everyone! welcome back for another top ten tuesday post. for today TTT’s topic, we’ll be talking about ten recent books that i got. note that i’m only talking about physical books here, since i don’t keep track of ebooks and e-arcs that i got (though i probably should’ve now). anyway, here we go :
1-2. the wicked king and the queen of nothing (the folk of the air #2 and #3) by holly black
got the wicked king because it was on sale, and ordered the queen of nothing a few days later so i could marathon the series. anyway, i’m now re-reading the cruel prince before continuing this series.
3. girl against the universe by paula stokes
i add this book to my TBR goodreads shelf back in 2016, and just like hundreds of books there, promptly forgotten about it until i saw this book on a book fair. i’ve already read it and it’s really good! also for me, it portrays mental illness and mental health pretty well.
4-5. heist society and uncommon criminals (heist society #1 and #2) by ally carter
also got these two from the book fair, but too bad i can’t find the third book! i read the heist society series years ago and i’m completely obsessed with it. i mean, travelling the world looking for antique and rare arts is the ultimate goal, right?
6. rebel (legend #4) by marie lu
i bought rebel just a few days after its release date because i’ve been waiting for months for it (even re-reading the entire legend trilogy in preparation for it), but guess what? i haven’t read it until now 🤡. not sure whether i’m just not in the mood, or i’m not ready yet to say goodbye to the characters.
7. roseblood by a.g. howard
i got this book mostly because i love the cover, but i end up loving the story so much i gave this book 5 stars. i was hesitant at first since i found the phantom of the opera creepy, but Howard somehow made it less creepy and more romantic, while staying true to the storyline.
8. wildcard (warcross #2) by marie lu
i haven’t actually read warcross, but i saw that wildcard was on sale and bought it since i plan on reading warcross anyway. one of these days i gotta buy warcross and start reading it.
9. furyborn (empirium #1) by claire legrand
again, got this book since it was on sale (tbh i think i got most of my books because of sale) and i found the plot is interesting enough. haven’t read this one, though.
10. graffiti moon by cath crowley
i read one of cath crowley’s books, words in deep blue, years ago and i really, really love it. i’ve been hearing lots of great things about graffiti moon ever since that, and i finally bought it online. i’ve read this one and i love it as much as i love words in deep blue. cath crowley’s writing is simple, yet full of meanings at the same time.
