This week’s Top Ten Tuesday’s theme is great because truly I have no idea why I don’t talk more about these books!? I really enjoyed them or loved them and I might occasionally recommend them to people but they are rarely if ever mentioned in any of posts
So this time I decided to only look at my physical shelves because I’ve been reading far more ebooks recently and my babies deserve more attention!
One of my 2017 favorites, The Love That Split The World is a contemporary romance with a mix of magical realism in it that talks about cultural identity, the native american people and discrimination – but it’s also a love story that I really enjoyed! It’s super mysterious and mystical and it’s it’s one of the most beautiful books I own!
The Power is set in our world but with a scifi twist. What if women suddenly gained the ability to produce electricity within their bodies? With just a touch they can inflict horrible pain and even death.
It explores this idea, this shift in power all over the world and its consequences in a rather interesting book.
One of the few historical novels I’ve read, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is a witty gem full of bandits, pirates, drama and even love on a trip across Europe. Just one of those books I picked up on a whim at a bookstore and ended up loving. (I’m considering reading the next book in the trilogy soon.)
Women all over the world are falling asleep and a cocoon is forming around them and when woken they become extremely violent. It all started in the small town of Dooling where all women are struggling to stay awake except the newest inmate of the women’s prison…. The men are panicking and loosing control and inhibitions.
My first King book and my favorite out of the six I’ve read so far and one of my 2018 favorites. I remember reading this book in about a week, 100 pages at a time and what an adventure! It’s just incredibly interesting and gripping at all times. I might reread it this year….
One of my 2016 favorites that I’m seriously considering rereading this year because it’s just incredible.
In a steampunk, feudal Japan-like island of Shima, the skies are red and the earth is dying with pollution from the lotus guilds and the emperor is an insane tyrant. One day, he sends his hunters to find the mythical arashitora, the thunder tiger, but things go horribly wrong and Yukiko finds herself stuck on a mountain with one angry mythical beast that she can somehow understand.
The Last Namsara is story about dragons, a people at war and the danger and power of stories. I loved it because of the importance of telling stories has and the twist on the usual type of dragons – these are feared and hunted creatures that breathe poisonous fire and are attracted to stories like moths to flame. I read this book in a day a couple of years ago and I’m hoping to finish the trilogy soon.
I absolutely recommend all of these, of course, and I hope my post can convince some of you to check them out
in spite of my shitty summary writing skills!
