Hey everyone! I just reorganized my bookshelves yesterday (I’m on spring break and I needed to add a lot of newly read books…don’t judge) and I realized that there were a lot of books that I love, but that don’t get mentioned often on this blog. And since that was this week’s TTT topic, I decided to take part in this meme again this week.
As always, TTT is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
Top Ten Books I meant to Talk about more
1. The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy by Kate Hattemer
I read this book a really long time ago and remember loving it. Unfortunately, I don’t remember enough to talk about it more on this blog. But still—you should read it…and I should reread it.
2. A Company of Swans by Eva Ibbotson
I went through a phase of just reading Eva Ibbotson’s books a few years ago. All of her stories are really romantic and heart-wrenching, but their endings are always perfect. This book was my favorite out of all of them that I read.
3. Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho
I read this book last year and was really impressed by the way it handled the characters. I don’t feel like I’ve talked about it recently, though, which I weird.
4. Angel Burn by LA Weatherly
I love this series—I think I’ve read the first book three times (maybe four). It’s a different side of the paranormal genre than what I usually see, which I appreciate. The premise is great, and the story had a great arc throughout the series.
5. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
This book was weird…but in a good way. I had a lot of fun reading this quirky story…and the romance is awesome.
6. The Christopher Killer by Alane Ferguson
This is the first book in a series of murder mysteries. I haven’t read them in a while, but I remember being drawn to the main character and captivated by the mysteries. They’re pretty short, definitely a nice afternoon read (if you don’t mind being creeped out a bit).
7. The Archived by Victoria Schwab
I LOVED the premise of this book. And the characters. And the romance. Basically everything. Just go read it if you haven’t.
8. Indelible by Dawn Metcalf
This series is interesting. I’m not in love with it, but I can’t get rid of them, and I want to see where the story goes. In terms of originality, I’d say that this series is one of the most unique paranormal series that I’ve read.
9. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Another book that I should have reread a while ago. I enjoyed this take on the human-dragon-mutant idea and I want to see what happens in the second book. Full disclosure, both books are really long, and I haven’t had the dedication (I know, that’s the worst).
10. Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig
This book is wildly different from what I usually read—a lot darker and a lot less appropriate. But the story is so powerful.
Have you read any of these books? Which ones caught your eye?
Also! If you haven’t seen yet, 52 Letters got a well-needed redesign yesterday. I realized that my design aesthetic for my graphics had changed, and that the blog look should change with it. I love the new look, and I hope you do too!
