Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish, and has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is Top Ten underrated books themed. I did books I read recently that I loved but haven’t talked about or it feels like no one is talking about.

10. 33914010 Now is Everything – Amy Giles. This was a dual timeline read that was very interesting and kept me guessing. We saw the lead up to an event and the aftermath.

9. Sanctuary Sanctuary – Caryn Lix. This was a great Sci-Fi read and I can’t wait for the next one.

8. 35098416 When My Heart Joins the Thousand – AJ Stieger. Ow my heart.

7. Dangerous Art of Blending in The Dangerous Art of Blending In – Angelo Surmelis. Again, ow my heart.

6. Moxie Moxie – Jennifer Mathieu. Girl power!

5. Like Water Like Water – Rebecca Podos. So good!

4. Ginny Moon Ginny Moon – Benjamin Ludwig. I loved the characters, especially Ginny.

And 3 upcoming books that deserve all the hype/praise they can get.

3. 38718233 The Next Person You Meet in Heaven – Mitch Albom. Following up something like The Five People You Meet in Heaven after so long is a huge task but Mitch Albom does is amazingly.

2. 31332356 The Resolutions – Mia Garcia. I want to be part of this friends group!

  1. What If It's Us What If It’s Us – Becky Albertalli/Adam Silvera. Read it! It’s so worth it!
