Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ The Bionic Book Worm. For the month of March, each week will represent five letters of the alphabet, and I will share a favourite author for each one of them. This week, we do letters from P to T, and without further ado, here comes the list!
The letter P: Ashley Poston with Geekerella
I read this book a while ago, and I completely fell in love with it. It is, very obviously, a retelling of Cinderella, and I wrote a paper on that very subject, so of course I was going to read that. My obsession for retellings is never ending. And anyway, this was amazing.
The letter Q: Matthew Quick with The Silver Linings Playbook
This was one of the cases where I watched the movie, and ended up reading the book was well afterwards. Which was worth it, because the book was much better (no offence to Jennifer Lawrence). I remember that it’s one of the first audiobooks I listened to, and I didn’t want to stop.
The letter R: Amy Reed with The Nowhere Girls
This book is so important! It’s about a group of girls who get together to try and change things. To make the world a better place. To bring things to the light. To fight rape and abuse. It’s a powerful story that needed to be told. I simply couldn’t put it down, and I will never stop recommending it.
The letter S: Victoria Schwab with Shades of Magic
Or any of her books, really. I love them all (although I have not read all of them yet) and she is one of my favourite authors. Currently I am waiting for the next installment in her Cassidy Blake middle grade series, and I’m also really curious about her Addie Larue project!
The letter T: Laini Taylor with Daughter of Smoke and Bone
I read this one a few years ago, and I have yet to read the sequel because I’m really bad at finishing series but I really liked it. The universe was unique and fascinating and I completely fell in love with it. I loved the unique main character, I loved the concept, I loved how her backstory was unveiled little by little, and I loved the setting of Prague. I know we are going to see more of the world in the sequels, and I really have to get it together and pick them up because I want to know!
And that’s it for today! Thank you so much for reading, and please take care of yourself in these troubled times.
