This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is My Ten Most Recent Reads. I usually work on my blog posts ahead and since I’m not sure what I’ll be reading the first few days in May, I thought I would just list the last ten books I read in April. I am not including audiobooks in this list, just books I read-read.
This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson: I reread this for the teen book club I host at my library. It starts off a lot slower than I remember, but it sure does take off as more murders happen and things get crazier!
Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee: This book! I loved it. Stacey Lee continues to blow me away with her historical fiction. I love that she writes books about the Chinese-American experience throughout different eras.
The Last Fallen Star by Graci Kim: This was such a fun middle grade mythology book. I love so many aspects of it. Definitely one to read if you love the Rick Riordan Presents imprint.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas: I read this as part of a writing group book club I’m in. I didn’t hate it. I liked it more than book one. But I still don’t think it’s my thing. (Also, it is way too long. XD)
Fable by Adrienne Young: Be still my heart! I absolutely devoured this book. I read it for a book club (Yes, I’m in three book clubs), and I’m so glad we picked it. If you like pirate-y, sailing on the seas types of books, READ THIS ONE.
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton: After reading Fable, I found myself in a bit of a slump. I started and stopped reading two books on my physical TBR before picking this one up. The world-building in this shocked me that I think it helped me get out of my slump!
From Little Tokyo, With Love by Sarah Kuhn: This wasn’t quite what I expected after reading Kuhn’s first YA book, but there were a lot of aspects I adored.
There You’ll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones: This was super cute and much more exciting than I anticipated. I picked it up because there’s a movie adaptation coming out soon!
Namesake by Adrienne Young: This booook. Just like with Fable, I devoured this book. I love the world, I love the characters, I love the ending. It’s so good.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas: I did it! I finished reading this monster. I think I prefer the movie, though.
