Since I’m back at school and things have been so crazy lately I haven’t had much time to read. However, I just started reading The Bone Season about a day ago and I’m hoping to have a review for it by Friday because man am I enjoying it.
Anyway, today I’m bringing you a top five Wednesday on books I read before starting to blog. This list seemed like a fun one because I feel like I’m constantly talking about my most recent reads.
If you want to get involved with top five Wednesday you can find it on Goodreads. Top five Wednesday was created by Gingerreadslainey, who continues to do an awesome job with weekly topics.
Now, for the fun part!
Room by Emma Donoghue
Room is written from the perspective of a 5 year old boy that has never left the room is mother was locked in after she was kidnapped. It’s brilliantly written and riveting. When I read this one I found myself unable to put it down.
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Rossi is a brilliant writer and Under the Never Sky was the best introduction to her that I could have hoped for. Under the Never Sky is a quick read with a lot of action and characters that you’ll fall in love with. This is a series I often find myself considering rereading.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Ready Player One gets a lot of crap from a lot of people but I honestly really loved this book. Cline made me care about something I never thought I would care to read about: video games. Even more, the movie looks awesome and the soundtrack seems even better.
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
This was such a strange story. It’s a contemporary but also not really. Forman created a family that I actually cared about in If I Stay and that really resonated with me after reading it. Also, if you’re looking for a good book to cry to, this is a great one.
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
You know, I still haven’t finished this series. I kind of hate myself for it because I absolutely loved the first two books. Like Ernest Cline, Yancey made me care about something I don’t typically give a damn about. The idea of reading about an alien invasion isn’t very appealing to me but Yancey does a wonderful job immersing readers into a really messed up post alien invasion world.
