A-B-C-D-E // Top 5 Tuesday



Hello and Happy Tuesday!

For this next month and hopefully following months I’ve decided to take part in Top 5 Tuesday which is hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book . The theme for this month is all books that start with the following letters of the alphabet.

 Again But Better by Christine Riccio


When I received an ARC for this courtesy of Netgalley I shit you not I screamed. I was so excited about reading this. Granted that excitement went away as soon as I actually started reading it but in recent weeks I’ve come to have a new appreciation for this book. Its bad it really it however I find reading other peoples reviews so entertaining that I have to give it props. Just the overall ridiculousness of this book and the reviews that include sentences like “a clusterfuck of quirky nonsense” keep me so entertained.

Becoming by Michelle Obama

38746485I haven’t read this yet, I don’t even own it yet but I am DYING to read this book. Michelle Obama is just amazing and I really want to hear more of what she has to say and what her life was like before/during/after being the First Lady.

Cress by Marissa Meyer


Cress, book number 3 in the Lunar Chronicles is probably my favourite of the series. Cress herself is so sweet and how could I not love a book with so much Captain Thorne moments.

The Darkest Legacy by Alexander Bracken


I can’t decide if I want to read this book. This is the new fourth book in the Darkest Minds series, a dystopian series I thought I had finally completed but nope because she brought out another book. As much as I loved Zu, who this book follows, I don’t know if I want to continue on.

The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven


I’m never not going to miss an opportunity to plug this book and it’s recently been released in America so GO AND READ THIS BOOK! It follows hilarious Izzie O’Neil a poor but budding screen writer whose nudes go public starting a huge, very important discussion on revenge porn although it manages to keep the balance of political and incredibly entertaining. Also the author herself is a gem and everybody should support her.

Thank you for reading.

  1. SAME, Becoming is on my tbr and I’m so keen to get to it! Have heard so much about it!
    I also have Again But Better on my tbr, it sounds really good and the cover is so cute!
    Cress is technically on there too, but I have yet to read the previous books – I have purchased Cinder though so we’re getting there?! I don’t usually read science fiction but hopefully I’ll like it – I’m just wary to push myself out of my reading comfort zone at the moment in case I fall back into the reading slump I had for so long ://

    1. Me and science fiction do not mix at all, it’s just really not my genre but The Lunar Chronicles was amazing! Book 1 is definitely my least favourite but after that it gets better and better. Good luck with your slump,
