The page also includes future prompts for Top Ten Tuesday so you can find out what’s coming up. On the day, you can find the individual post related to that week’s prompt and link up with everyone else doing TTT. This week it’s: top ten books I’ve read so far this year. There’s just one problem: I’ve only read 14 books so this list is like 70% of my books read.
1. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
I went into this book only knowing that it had gorgeous pages and that it would be an unusual way of telling a story. Some of the kinds of things it contained were e-mails, chats, interviews, surveillance footage summaries and so much more. It was an amazingly unique way to tell a story and I absolutely loved it. Like this might actually be one of my new favourite books.
2. Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
See above. This book follows some slightly different characters to the first though the overall story continues. When I first found this out, I was a bit disappointed thinking that I couldn’t possibly love these characters as much as the first. But I was soooo wrong. Like a whole other planet of wrong. This book was so good and I loved it just as much as the first and where is book number 3?? Give it to me now!
3. Caraval by Stephanie Garber
I went into this expecting good things and it didn’t disappoint. It just kept me guessing all the time and I could never tell who was good or who was bad so I was constantly second guessing myself. I can’t wait for the sequel and hope it keeps me guessing as much as Caraval did.
