It’s been forever since I joined Top Ten Tuesday, and this week (uhm, a week ago) I was GOING to be on time. And then I left the finished post in my drafts and it’s been sitting there ever since. Argh. But, I really liked this theme and so I still want to share my ten most recent 5 star reads with you anyway.
Ten Of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads
- Twinkle Twinkle by Kaori Ekuni
This is my most recent 5 star read. I absolutely adored it. A proper review will be coming soon!
- Chaos Walking (entire series) by Patrick Ness
These books, these books! I still have not quite processed them. I really loved them (and also hated them just a little).
- The Color Purple by Alice Walker
One of my favourite books I’ve read lately. Heart-breaking, breath-taking, beautiful, sad, funny, perfect. A must-read for everyone imho.
- Dear Leader: Poet, Spy, Escapee—A Look Inside North Korea by Jang Jin-sung
Terrifying, and very impressive.
- A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
Another Ness. ALL THE TEARS.
- The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall
- Slade House by David Mitchell
I love me some David Mitchell. This one was properly creepy and as usual I love how characters from his other books show up here and there.
- The Letter for the King by Tonke Dragt
Gorgeous gorgeous (Dutch) children’s book. Loved this when I was a kid, loved it now. And it’s finally translated to English so you can allll enjoy it!
- De Gevleugelde by Arthur Japin
I wish more of Japin’s work was translated to English. His historical fiction is gorgeous. This book was about the Brazilian Alberto Santos-Dumont and it once again did not disappoint.
- The Dark Forest by Cixin Liu
This book made me hate everything. My review on Goodreads was literally 10 stars this book has ruined me send help. I am one of those “I hope we discover extraterrestrials in my lifetime!”-people, but this book is spot on about what would actually happen if we did XD
