Hey y’all! Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish question idea that was originally created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, from way back in June 2010! Since January 2018, Top Ten Tuesday has been hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Thanks for taking it over! The idea is to make a list of ten books or bookish things on different topics each week. Check out her site for details on how to join and what the upcoming prompts are. 😊 You can also see all the posts from other bloggers linked on each weekly post on their main site.
This week’s prompt is One-Word Reviews for the Last Ten Books I Read (submitted by Susan @ Bloggin’ ’bout Books)! This is perfectly timed, because I read a good chunk of books in April but slouched on actually writing my reviews for them. 😅 So here I can at least get some super tiny reviews done for them!
Last 10 Finished Books, from least recent to most!
This book was weird, in a good way. I didn’t always know what was going on, and I just trusted it would help me find my way. Akin to wandering through a foggy dim forest and hoping I’ll make my way out. (Full review!)
A multi-generational story covering immigration, marriage, identity, and so much more. I loved it!
Possibly the highest praise I can give a book, especially a YA fantasy, since I can almost always predict every step of the way for that genre. This stunned me five or six times, and all in ways that fit the story well and didn’t feel forced! Solid story, really impressed!
You think you know where this is going? Well so does Laura, and boy was she wrong. Maybe your meet-cute isn’t the one it looked like. 😊 Lovely and funny and hopeful and playful, this was a great whim of a read.
As in not under nor over. The beginning was exactly what I wanted: insight to Sylvanas’s life pre-banshee, then her deeper perspective in her forsaken years, and how exactly she ended up with the Jailer. The end was a little dull, though… much like the game when she’s with the Jailer. 🤷♀️
A book that relies on playing with the common tropes of a fantasy DnD-style party, this book was silly and fun and enjoyed making little tongue in cheek jokes about the expectations. I adored it! (Full review!)
I know Boylan had a lot of personal struggle in her life, so this isn’t too surprising, but the way it felt grim is what surprised me. It kind of seems like all the dogs were unredeemable hellions in her eyes, and the overall tone was very stormcloud gray.
Frickin’ Dava. I adored this book and I’m so glad my weak mind with the kindle achievements was swayed to finally read it. The floaty feeling of it is a perfect mirror to the story, and they characters are unapologetically real. Her damn legacy came true.
