Oh gosh- Where do I even begin with this one? I’m pretty sure every book I have on my shelves are ones I had to buy but still haven’t read yet. But I looked at my shelves and took out some of the ones I’ve heard are amazing, and maybe you can help me choose what to read?
At number 10, it’s ‘It Looks Like This’ by Rafi Mittlefehldt. I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews and I’m also aware of what happens at the end, but I’m still curious to read it myself, especially since I own it.
Number 9 is ‘Labyrinth Lost’ by Zoraida Córdova. I’ve heard a lot of positive reviews about this book and from the sounds of it, I’ll definitely enjoy it, plus it’s said to have a lot of diversity.
In at number 8 is ‘The Bone Witch’ by Rin Chupeco. Once again, I’ve heard a lot of positive reviews on this book and it sounds like something I’d love and wouldn’t be able to put down once I started.
Number 7 is a book I’ve heard so much about, even one of my close friends has said how much feeling and emotion he got from it, ‘The Hate U Give’ by Angie Thomas. I really want to read this, I just need to find the time, I know I’m going to love it.
Coming in at number 6 is ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ by Laini Taylor. I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about this one too, but I think it still falls on a more positive than negative? At least from what I’ve seen.
Halfway through at number 5, I have ‘The Wrath and the Dawn’ by Renee Ahdieh. I’m always interested in reading retellings and this one definitely sounds amazing.
Number 4 is ‘Six of Crows’ by Leigh Bardugo. I’ve definitely heard a lot of mixed reviews about it – A lot of people say either negative or positive things about it, never neutral. At least from what I’ve seen. So I keep ‘um’ing’ and ‘ah’ing’ about it.
At number 3, I have ‘Simon Vs. The Homo-Sapiens Agenda’ by Becky Albertalli. I’ve heard mostly good reviews about it and the only negative thing was something said by Simon in the book – I believe the author has talked about it on her twitter.
Wow, we’re at number 2 already, here I have, ‘Half Bad’ by Sally Green. This is definitely mixed reviews from people. I did try to read it once, last year, I believe, but I wasn’t in the mood so I put it down and can’t remember a thing about it, except magic???
Finally at number 1! I have Akarnae by Lynette Noni. I first heard about this when Tilly talked about it, and it certainly sounds like something I would really love to read and would enjoy!
*Note: This was in no real order, it was just the first 10 books I saw on my shelves and thought were particularly good ones*
