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 While this is alternative history, it was still fascinating and contained enough actual historical references for me to love it.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?
