There are a lot of things that people can say when describing a book that will make me HAVE to read that book. People who know me are able to use these buzz words to get me to read pretty much any book. It’s kind of a problem because sometimes that means I go into the book with vastly different expectations from what the book is actually about. It can also mean that I like the book far more than other people do because it has a theme or trope that I like. This is the top ten tuesday topic of the week (from The Broke and The Bookish) so read on to learn more what you can say to get me to read a book.
I’m back again with another Top Ten Tuesday post (hosted by The Broke and The Bookish). Today’s theme is Top Ten Of The Most Unique Books I’ve Read but as per one of the suggested variations I am going to do the top ten most unique books on my TBR, which will be more my opinion from reading the blurb with will avoid the problem of me only ever talking about the same few books which I have noticed happening quite a lot in tag/top ten tuesdays. For this list I will only be taking books off my TBR list, which for me is a list of books that I am definitely going to read.
I’m finally up to the review for Winter by Marissa Meyer. This post won’t contain spoilers for Winter but it WILL contain spoilers for the previous books in the series. I also have reviews up for Cinder, Scarlet and Cress so go check those out as it will probably greatly help you understand my thoughts on the series.
The Other Slipper by Kenechi Odogu is a novel based off the tale of Cinderella but taking it in a different direction. This book is set in a fantasy world that is reminiscent of the worlds fairy tales are usually set in. I read this book as an ebook which went really well.
I was given a copy of this novel by the author for review, this does not in any way impact my opinion of the novel.
My review for the third book in the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer whoo let’s go. I loved this book, as I am writing this I have finished the whole series, and this review may contain spoilers for Cinder or Scarlet, you’ve been warned. I have reviews for Cinder and Scarlet already up so reading those may be helpful for you so you understand my opinion. Now let’s dive in.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer is an amazing series that I have currently finished but I have too many thoughts to lump the books into a series review. Beware this review will be from the perspective of someone who knows where the series ends up so I might overlook some details etc. You can read my review for Cinder to see my thoughts. I refer heavily to themes or topics in that review in this post so reading it will be incredibly helpful.
**also there WILL be spoilers for Cinder in this review**
I LOVED Cinder ok, I’ll say it now and that position is not going to change. Note that any issues with pacing didn’t apply to me because I read this all in one setting in a car trip so… yeh. It’s really good and has got me super inspired to write a series just as awesome. Also take into account that at the time I am writing this review I have read the next two books in the series so this review might overlook some flaws because they make sense/are fixed later on. Read on to hear the rest of my thoughts.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer releases on February 9th in the UK but in the US and Australia it released in November so I was able to get my hands on this book. Heartless is a Alice in Wonderland retelling by the queen of retellings – Marissa Meyer. This is actually my first Marissa Meyer book but I do have the Lunar Chronicles on my shelf to read very soon.Read More »
