I usually don’t give a lot of 5 star ratings nowadays – I mean if I don’t find the book completely astounding or flawless, then there’s no way I’m giving it a 5 star. If I love the book too much, then I usually just give a 4 or sometimes a 4.5 maybe, but for a 5, the book has to be something special. So I’m slightly bending the rules and posting here my LAST TEN 4/4.5 star reads.
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick. It was a sad, deep, insightful read about a seventeen year old boy’s suicide and murder mission.
A Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler. A classical tale about generations of the Whitshank family, this book was an easy, touching, delightful read.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. A classical tale of sisterhood, love and romance.
Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray. The thrilling sequel to A Thousand Pieces of You this dimension-travelling story continued with newer twists and turns and a shocking ending.
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. A magical, thrilling and romantic retelling of Arabian Nights, TWATD was a griiping, beautiful book. Can’t wait for the sequel!
It’s Kind of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. A quirky, insightful read about mental illness, with touches of emotion and lots of laughter.
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. A humorous, touching tale of a homosexual who’s in love with this person he has been emailing lately, and his search for that person.
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. I mentioned the sequel before because I’m going in a chronological order top down. This book is the first book in the Firebird trilogy and it’s an exhilerating story of a chase through dimensions.
November 9 by Colleen Hoover. An amazing, (maybe a bit cliche :P) story of two people who meet randomly, spend one day together, fall in love, and promise to keep meeting that same day every year. But what happens when secrets from past come up?
All the Rage by Courtney Summers. A strong, powerful and gripping read about abuse, bullying and depression.
