SURPISE!!! // Top 5 Tuesday

aaaa

Hi, hey, hello and happy Tuesday.

It’s the final round of Top 5 Tuesday 2019! I can’t believe it!. I started with Top 5 Tuesday this past summer and I’ve absolutely loved participating in all the weekly topics. I think I’ve only missed one which I’m really happy about. I can’t wait to see what topics are to come in 2020.

This weeks topic is Top 5 Surprising reads and I have to study so let’s just jump into it.

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah @ The Bionic Book Worm

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennet

Starry Eyes is a book I picked up at the start of the year on a total whim and oh my god I loved it so much. This book opened me up to trying more YA contemporary romance and also introduced me to Jenn Bennet, an author I now plan on reading everything she ever writes.

You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn

Things I don’t typically like: romance and country music. 

This books two main topics: romance and country music. 

Needless to say I went into this, which I read as an ARC from Netgalley, not thinking for one second that I would absolutely love this book but that’s exactly what happened.

Orpheus Girl by Brynne Rebele-Henry

This book was surprising in terms of plot rather then enjoyment. Going off the cover I was thinking this book would be a cute, summer, wlw story … it was not. The themes in this book are heavy as fuck as it deals with conversion therapy and torture. This was not something I was expecting at all and so it really threw me. Although not was I was expecting I did think this was a very powerful and important story.

I was surprised by how much I didn’t like this book which is a sad thing to say. It’s not that I hated it or anything like that, it was good, it just didn’t live up to the hype and it took me over a month to read it. I do plan on trying again with this book at a later date because I want to love this.

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

I picked this up this past October and had such a good time reading it. The writing style and especially the atmosphere of this story is really great. I tried reading this last year, I got about 10 pages in then put it down and so this time I really wasn’t expecting to devour it as I did. I’m dying to read more from Shea Ernshaw.

So there we have it lads and ladies, those are the books that took me by surprise over this last year. Thanks for reading.
