It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah Bionic Book Worm and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
For this month, Shanah came up with something very special. Each Tuesday I share my top 5 books beginning with the respective letters of the alphabet assigned for the day.
So, let’s begin with A, B, C, D and E!
A – American Gods
I am currently watching the second season of American Gods. The book went straight to my to-read-list back when the first one was announced. It’s quite a handful to read, but it was fascinating, educating and thrilling at the same time.
B – The Book Thief
If you are looking for a book to rip your heart out and bring you to tears, The Book Thief is the one for you. It’s beautifully written, certainly not what you expect but it will crawl right under your skin.
C – Crooked Kingdom
I’m almost finished with Leigh Bardugo’s bibliography. After recently finishing the Six of Crows duology, these books quickly became my new favorites. Crooked Kingdom is even better than Six of Crows, so be sure to check it out! (reviews coming soon)
D – The Devil Wears Prada
Okay, after a bunch of books I loved I’ll now share some of my less beloved reads. As much as I enjoyed the movie, I loathed the book version of The Devil Wears Prada. Annoying, lengthy, a bitchy main character. Big nope from me.
E – Everything, Everything
Another disappointment to add to my list was Everything, Everything (book vs. movie review coming soon). It’s beyond cheesy, foreseeable and unrealistic. Maybe I’m just getting too old for this, but Everything, Everything is a big mess.
Can you name a book for each letter? Let me know in the comments!
