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.
This is post #3 dealing with K, L, M, N and O.
K – Kingdom of Ash
You all knew I was just waiting for a chance to name a Sarah J. Maas book. Kingdom of Ash is the final book in the TOG series and wrecked in just about all ways possible.
L – The Lovely Bones
Usually, I read the book before watching the film. In this case, it was the other way around, so I figured I knew what to expect. The book was somewhat different from the film and not necessarily in a good way. I wasn’t as thrilled by this book as I hoped I would be.
M – The Man in the High Castle
The Man in the High Castle is another book that didn’t quite live up to my expectations. Although Dick came up with some interesting ideas, the story left me unsatisfied and irritated.
N – Norse Mythology
The review for this one will come soon-ish. Until then, let me tell you that Neil Gaiman did a decent job re-telling the most famous Norse myths. But to be honest, I’d rather read Rick Riordan‘s adaptations of the topic. So much more intricate and funny!
O – Oranges are not the only Fruit
Back in the day, during my first semester at University, I read this one for an English lecture. I wasn’t too fond of the book than. However, I might give it a re-read as I don’t think I properly understood everything that’s going on back then.
Can you name a book for each letter? Let me know in the comments!
