TTT #128 | Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About

We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About. And I really like this topic! There are quite some books we talk about alll the time and I’m happy to get the opportunity to pick some books that usually slip my mind. So let’s dive in!

1.Last Girl Lied To – Laurie Elizabeth Flynn

I was part of the blog tour voor Last Girl Lied to. And while it isn’t my favorite YA mystery thriller I did really enjoy it. I’m always on the look out for a new and interesting YA mystery thriller and I’m excited for Laurie’s newest release.

2. Just for Clicks – Kara McDowell

I had the opportunity to read the eARC for this one through Netgalley. And I was so happy I read it! This was an wonderful contemporary story and I highly enjoyed it. It was a fast and pretty short story but I really liked the blogging part and I liked the characters.

3. Contagion – Erin Bowman

This was a suspenseful sci-fi mystery thriller! I like when there is a mix between genre’s and this one was down very well. The ending was amazing and I can’t wait to finally read the sequel because oh my, I need to know what happened.

4. Brooklyn Brujas series – Zoraida Córdova

I’ve read the first two books in the Brooklyn Brujas trilogy and I’m super excited for the final book. While I think this book did get some attention, I feel like there was never any hype surrounding it. And in my opinion this series really deserves some love.

5. The Final Six – Alexandra Monir

This was a fun apocalyptic kind of sci-fi read. It was great that the focus wasn’t on Northern America and we got to see a lot more from the world. One of the main characters was Italian and I appreciated that a lot. The sequel is out and I should pick it up soon, as this was another one with a intriguing ending.

6. Renegades – Marissa Meyer

This series has gotten more love than the previous books on this list. Book 3 in the series is already out, but I still have read only the first book. I started this series after meeting Marissa Meyer, who is super sweet by the way, and I will repeat myself but wow what an ending. So many books, so little time but I should make some time for this series.

7. The Last Namsara – Kristen Ciccerelli

Candyce and I have met Kristen a couple of years ago and she was such a sweet human being. At the time I hadn’t read her book yet but I’m glad I did so afterwards. This is a super cool dragon book and I own the rest of the trilogy. The only thing that bugs me is that every book has a different main character. But I’ll just have to try it out first.

8. Fireworks – Katie Cotugno

Every now and then I do like to pick up a contemporary book. And Katie Cotugno was an author I really wanted to try. This book has a bit of a historical setting, I believe it’s set in the 90’s. It was very enjoyable and I liked the ambition of the girls.

9. Assassin’s Heart – Sarah Ahiers

This is a pretty underrated fantasy duology. I really liked the gangster family inspired world and I enjoyed the story a lot. While the sequel does sound like a rehash of the first book, I do own it and plan on reading it at some point. I especially like the world and wouldn’t mind spending some more time in it.

10. Grant County & Will Trent series – Karin Slaughter

Karin Slaughter was one of my most read and most owned authors. I just to read a lot of adult mystery thrillers and in my opinion Karin Slaughter is the best. She wrote some amazing books and the suspense always kills me. I’m ashamed to admit I still have a couple of unread Karin Slaughters but I hope to get to them soon.

Have you read any of these books? And what are some book you never talk about even though you liked them? Come talk to me in the comments!

  1. I love a good YA thriller or mystery. And Contagion was awesome!I liked the sequel but it didn’t quite match the first one for me. I think that’s because the first one was so freaky though!

  2. Contagion is still on my tbr. I’ve read a small part of it and it was exciting so far, so can’t wait to see what I’ll think of the rest. Labyrinth Lost looks really awesome! The final Six was on my wishlist already as was Renegades by Marissa Meyer – really curious and excited about them! The last Namsara has been on my wishlist for ages but I just never seem to get around to buy it haha. I loved Assassin’s heart a lot. The companion novel was a fun read as well I think, but not as well executed as the first one, in my opinion. Still, overall its a really fun duology to read! Curious to see what you’ll think of it when you get around to read it!
