This week I’m participating in Top Ten Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish. Today’s prompt is top ten recent five star reads – I’m excited to reminisce about some of the favourites from books I’ve read recently! All covers link to Goodreads plus there’s links to my reviews too.
I just finished this last week and loved it! This one completely lived up to the hype. I will NOT be leaving it as long to read the next one.
This was a chilling, original read told from the point of view of a loveable psychopath. It was completely different to anything else I’ve read this year, and I can’t wait to read the sequel!
The Ballroom was a complete surprise, I fell in love with it. Set in 1900s asylum, The Ballroom is a heartfelt story, beautifully written with complex, well-drawn characters and a fascinating historical backdrop. I couldn’t ask for much more from a book.
This was a great way to start 2016; a twisted psychological thriller/mystery packed with complex family secrets and despicable characters.
This was a re-read over Christmas – you can’t go wrong with Harry Potter, the entire series are all five star books to me!
This was my Halloween read last year and my first experience of Joe Hill’s writing – and I’m aiming to make sure it’s not my last! A dark, twisted supernatural tale I won’t forget in a hurry.
I think I read this children’s classic way back when I was younger, but I read through both Alice In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass last year and I loved this wonderful tale of adventure. It’s definitely one everyone should read!
Mark Watney’s disastrous Mars mission makes for one of the most heartwarming, inspirational stories of survival against all odds I’ve ever had the please of reading.
This YA contemporary romance about a girl confined to her home by a rare illness stood out from the crowd for me. Just adorable.
This gorgeous romance with a twist attempts to answer the question What if? It’s elegant, thought-provoking and unique, probably in the top three books I read last year.
