Top Ten Tuesday | Five Star Reads

top ten tuesday blog

This weekly meme was was created by The Broke and the Bookish. This today’s theme is a “10 of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads“. 

From most recent to least recent. I’m not including rereads (which would be Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in this case). I have a lot of 4 and 4.5 star books, but I decided to only post the 5 star ones, even though I talk about most of them all the time. Whatever. 

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline


I finished this book just last week and I enjoyed it a lot. So incredibly geeky. I want to try a virtual reality like the OASIS.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor


I need to stop mentioning this book in every TTT topic. But it just fits everywhere, I can’t help it, I love it. I recently ordered the last two books in the trilogy so I’m looking forward to reading them.

Den Sommeren Pappa Ble Homo by Endre Lund Eriksen

This is a Norwegian book about a 12-year-old boy named Arvid who realizes his father might be falling in love with that gay dude that lives on their vacation spot. Said gay dude also happens to have a slightly annoying daughter that won’t leave Arvid alone. Cue juvenile angst and embarrassment because dad can’t be gay, right??? Especially not with that guy. It’s so hilarious, I was dying through the entire thing. I don’t know how it works in book form, I listened to the audio read by the author.

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell


I just loved how bittersweet this was. And I really love Eleanor.

More Than This by Patrick Ness


This book is a wonderful rollecoaster ride. I always recommend going into it blind because it’s more fun that way. It’s a proper mindfuck.

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness


I still have yet to read the last book in this series, what’s wrong with me?? Goddamn. I really enjoy this series this far, it’s original and captivating.

Vicious by V.E. Schwab


13638125Everyone already knows this is one of my all-time favorites. I’m just obsessed with it. Who doesn’t love a good villain story? Read it. Right now.

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

[Mini review]

I read this book last summer so it’s been a while. I don’t even really know what it was about that book that made me enjoy it so much, all I know is that I loved it. I inhaled it in one sitting. I don’t know if I’m ever going to get around to reading the next book though, I feel like I might be happy with just this one. We’ll see.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn


This one’s so messed up. If you haven’t read the book then you’ve probably seen the movie (the movie’s amazing too). I love me some really unreliable narrators.

After Ben by Con Riley

16073835This one goes way back. I read it in March 2014. I didn’t write a review on it so naturally I don’t remember much of the details, but it’s tragic and cute and I enjoyed it. It’s about Theo who lost his longtime partner a year ago who’s still feeling the effects of that. Then he meets someone online who he connects with. I recommend it, especially if you like new adult type books and/or m/m romance.

What’s your most recent 5 star book? Have you read any of these?

    I completely agree with The Knife Of Never Letting Go, Eleanor & Park and Anna Dressed In Blood! Quite a few of the others are on my TBR; I’m especially excited to be starting Daughter Of Smoke And Bone next month. 😀

    Great list! So many of these I need to read. I really loved The Knife of Never Letting Go so much. I am currently reading The Ask and the Answer. I’m halfway through it, but I still think The Knife is so much better right now.

      Yeah, the first one is definitely better than the second. The second is more psychological and political (which I also really like) whereas the first is more action driven. I remembered yesterday that I still hadn’t read the #2.5 novella so I read that and had a lot of feels XD Damn you, Patrick Ness. Can’t wait to see what kind of book Monsters of Men is.

    Daughter of Smoke and Bone is worth every mention, it’s just that beautiful haha. I’ve had such a strong urge to re-read Vicious lately, I feel like I’m going to have to give in to this urge haha. I think I’m one of the few people that has yet to see the Gone Girl film and not read the book. I’m not sure I could cope with the messed up ending 😛

    I can’t wait to read Ready Player One, have heard so many amazing things! I just got the audiobook for More Than This, so excited!! xx


  5. Kirstie Ellen says:

    I really want to read Ready Player One! I own it but just haven’t picked it up yet, I’m sure I’ll love it when I do! So many awesome books on this list and so many books that I’ve been meaning to read for a while 🙂


  6. Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews says:

    Anna Dressed in Blood, yes!!! I loved that book so much. The next book is good and I loved it a lot, but it didn’t have the same feel as Anna did. Eleanor & Park has been on my shelf for ages, I need to get to that! I also just bought Daughter of Smoke and Bone online so hopefully that gets here soon I’m very intrigued by it. Vicious and Ready Player One are also on my TBR! Great list 😀
