Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson: This was out of my comfort zone because I don’t normally read historical fictions. I don’t know why I don’t because I do usually enjoy them.
The Martian by Andy Weir: I only read this because I won a copy of it and I wanted to read it before seeing the movie. The book was way better in this case.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: I’m not all that big into sci-fi so it was surprising that I actually really enjoyed reading this book.
Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry: Most of the time I really can’t stand contemporary but I was really glad when I fell in love with this book.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: Once again, not a contemporary person but I loved reading about Anna and Etienne. I didn’t enjoy the other two books quite as much as this one.
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys: I’m not a big reader of war stories but even though I gave this one three stars I actually didn’t mind reading it.
Confess by Colleen Hoover: This was my first dive into new adult and it was successful!
The Program by Suzanne Young: I tend to avoid books about mental health because I don’t find they’re often done well. I really liked how this author used it though.
The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black: This book is a lot darker than what I’m used to but I loved every minute of it.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness: This was not my first Patrick Ness book but, once again, I’m not a contemporary person. I like how this book incorporated contemporary and a little paranormal.
