top ten tuesday 4

I haven’t been reading a whole lot lately and I haven’t really adored that many of the books that I have read so I think this is probably going to be less than ten but I’ll try and get close!

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

I mentioned this one in last week’s post and I’ll say it again, it’s amazing.  Fantasy fans and non-fantasy fans should totally read this one.  The romance is perfect, the banter is extremely witty, and the story is fresh.

Underwater by Marisa Reichardt

I read this one at the recommendation of a friend and I am so glad that I did.  It’s the story of Morgan who believes she had something to do with a fatal shooting at her school.  She becomes afraid to leave her apartment but that starts to change when a new boy moves in next door.  While the story was a little slow at times, the writing more than made up for it.


Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer

Is this one really a surprise to anyone?  Marissa Meyer made herself one of my favorite authors with this series and it’s finale was no exception.  Winter was probably the best of the series and I loved how everything ended.  I haven’t read Stars Above yet but I do expect another five star read from that one.


The Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett

When this one first came out, everyone was talking about it and telling me to read it.  I picked it up with very low expectations (hype usually makes me nervous) but I ended up adoring it!  Bex and Jack were perfect together and their story was full of adventure, romance, and intrigue.  It’s probably one of my all time favorite contemporary novels.

Wolf by Wolf (Wolf by Wolf #1) by Ryan Graudin

Wolf By Wolf was one of those books that I predicted I would love and I was right.  I’m a huge history buff and anything to do with Nazi history really gets my attention.  While this is alternative history, it was still fascinating and contained enough actual historical references for me to love it.

Have you read any of these?  Did they make your list of five star reads?  What books were on your list?

  1. I feel like the only person on the planet who hasn’t read Wolf by Wolf yet! I’ve been meaning to for ages though. When I finally pick it up, I’m going to be so excited as I’ve seen it on this list! Winter is on my list as well, I thought it was a great conclusion to the series.

    Great list!

  2. I’ve seen Rebel of the Sands on a lot of lists this week, I need to read it soon!! Winter was such an excellent finale, I’ve been holding off on Stars Above but I think I’ll give in soon. I don’t want to leave these characters behind! I actually knew nothing about Anatomical until recently and LOVED it. Read it in a night! It was amazing.

  3. I literally have Winter sat on my nightstand just waiting for me to open it! I am also looking forward to getting a copy of Rebel of the Sands! 🙂

  4. Underwater and Winter are the only books on this list that I have read, but I LOVED both of them!! And man, I am so sad that The Lunar Chronicles series is over. I loved every book in that series. I have Wolf by Wolf on my Kindle and I hope to read it soon. I am so glad it’s one of your five star reads! Great list.
