Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s prompt was meant to be 4th of July themed, but without getting into any heavy politics, I’ll just say that I, like many others, am not feeling particularly patriotic this year. So, instead, I decided to do the most random list I could think of: 10 books on my shopping list for after my book ban ends! (I mean, I don’t think I’ll buy all of these, but some of them, I’m sure.)
What I need you guys to do is to let me know if you’ve read any of these, and if you recommend them or not!
1. The Death of Mrs. Westaway — Ruth Ware
Realistically, I should probably read at least one of the Ruth Ware books I already own before I buy this one, but I cannot even describe how much this sounds like a 5-star read for me.
2. Walking Alone: Short Stories — Bentley Little
Bentley Little used to be one of my favorite horror authors! While he’s fallen on my list a bit in recent years, I definitely gotta get this new anthology he just released.
3. Into the Drowning Deep — Mira Grant
I technically have this on my kindle, I think, but… well, I really like the way it looks, and the Mira Grant hardcovers often tend to go out of print after a little while, so I want to grab this while I can (just in case!).
4. Malice — John Gwynne
I posted about this on twitter a couple of nights ago, but I feel like most bookworms have that one particular book that jumps out at them every time they see it in a bookstore, yet they never actually BUY… and this is mine. So, I’m finally going to do it!
5. Brother — Ania Ahlborn
I’ve been wanting to try Ania’s work, so when I recently polled the members of a horror book group I’m in, this one came incredibly highly recommended for my introduction to her work.
6. One True Loves — Taylor Jenkins Reid
I adored The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo so much that I’ve absolutely gotta read more from TJR, and this title in particular comes pretty highly recommended!
7. He Said/She Said — Erin Kelly
I put this on my TBR ages ago but forgot about it until coming across it while doing a Down the TBR Hole post recently, and it sounds like an incredibly unique thriller.
8. Want — Cindy Pon
I’ve been wanting to buy this for ages anyways, but after how much I loved Cindy’s story in A Thousand Beginnings and Endings, I have to get it ASAP!
9. Far From You — Tess Sharpe
This is a YA mystery, and we all know I’m picky about them, but I am hearing such good things about this book even now, 3 years after its release, so it’s on my radar for sure.
10. Neverworld Wake — Marisha Pessl
This is a YA thriller about teens who have an accident and find out that they’re in a place called the Neverworld Wake, where they must come to a cohesive decision on which one of them is allowed to live. It sounds super dark and interesting (and THAT COVER!).
What do you think – have you read any of these, and if so, do you recommend them?
