It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
This week we talk about books where something went wrong!
#1 Dangerous Remedy by Kat Dunn
I just finished this one last week! Kat Dunn’s novel set shortly after the French Revolution kicks off with a prison break gone wrong. On the first pages, we encounter two characters who create a bigger distraction than they intended to when their hot air balloon crashes.
#2 Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
This is going to be a spoiler if you haven’t read the first two books in the series. That Jude is still in exile at the beginning of this novel is definitely not how things were planned by Cardan…
#3 Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
#4 Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin
Having a child with the devil is definitely what I’d call “gone wrong”. Especially if you weren’t aware of it in the first place!
#5 The Time Machine by H. G. Wells
If memory serves me right, the protagonist in H. G. Wells’ novella at some point loses his time machine. Being stranded in a different time was not what he had envisioned when he set out on his adventures!
