Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is Purple, Yellow, and/or Green Book Covers (in honor of Mardis Gras, which is today!)
I’m focusing on books that don’t usually get a lot of attention on my blog, but I have read and enjoyed!
- Not Your #LoveStory by Sonia Hartl. I adore Sonia and I adore this book. It’s funny, romantic, and keeps up the sex-positive vibes from her debut, Have a Little Faith in Me!
2. Diary of a Mad Bride by Laura Wolf. I haven’t read this one in a LONG time but I read my copy until it was falling apart before. It utilized funny footnotes before they became a thing that were everywhere.
3. Moonglass by Jessi Kirby. Not my most favorite Jessi Kirby, but any Jessi Kirby is a good one.
5. They Went Left by Monica Hesse. A story about what happens after the concentration camps are liberated and the mental state of those that survived. It was like nothing I’ve ever read before.
6. Baby Proof by Emily Giffin. This author is super problematic and I actually do not recommend her books and do not read her anymore. But before I found out about this, I read a few of her first books and have really strong memories about reading this one in a hotel in Nevada when my husband was taking the MCAT.
7. The Speed of Falling Objects by Nancy Richardson Fischer. A survivalist story about what happens after a small plane crashes in the Amazon. I loved it so much.
8. The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Knives Out for the YA crowd. I am in the middle of reading this one now, DO NOT TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS!
9. In a Holidaze by Christina Lauren. I got an ARC for this last year and it was somehow the first Christina Lauren book I’ve ever read. I loved it so much that I bought their entire backlist the day after finishing.
10. Rules for Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall. This was SO creepy and SO good. I mean, just look at the cover. The cover alone should creep you out.
