Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I've Read so Far in 2015.
Blood of Dragons by Robin Hobb - My review - The final book in The Rain Wild Chronicles, and a fantastic end to the series! And reading it caught me up with all the books set in The Realm of the Elderlings, so I can read Fool's Assassin, the first book in the Fitz and the Fool series, the fifth series set in the Realm. Phew! But I am excited! Draaaagons! And Hobb's writing. I just love it!
The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson - My review - This is such a wonderful transgender novel, and a fantastic debut you novel. Such a brilliant story, and highly recommended!
Lies We Tell Ourselves by Robin Talley - My review - This book is incredible, and wonderfully diverse! Set during integration in the 1950s, it looks at the issues of race and sexuality at a time when white ruled, and any sexuality other than straight was simply not discussed. An unbelievable book, so good! I implore you to read it!
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Nevin - My review - This book is absolutely beautiful. It's heartbreaking and I struggle every time to describe this book. It's so brilliant, I just can't find the words. About mental illness, and loosely based on things the author has experienced.
The Last Summer of Us by Maggie Harcourt - My review - This book! It's so good, I just can't tell you. It deals with grief and friendship, and it's so beautiful, and sad, and... I'm going to end up repeating myself. It's just awesome!
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman - My review - High fantasy with dragons! And mystery and just so much wow! I loved it!
Not Otherwise Specified by Hannah Moskowitz - My review - This is a fantastic intersectional novel! A bisexual woman of colour with an eating disorder, and a wonderful story of friendship, too! It's absolutely incredible!
The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough - My review - Another fantastic novel with a woman of colour, and LGBTQ elements. Set in the 1930s (I believe! Correct me if I'm wrong!), Love and Death are in competition, each choosing a different player, to see who will win. It's brilliant!
Every Last Word by Tammara Ireland Stone - My review - This book is so beautiful. On mental illness again, and just brilliant! Inspired me to pick up writing poetry, and it's a completely wonderful story.
The Accident Season by Mora Fowley-Doyle - My review - THIS BOOK! I reviewed it earlier today, and it's just brilliant! A mysterious paranormal-ish novel with suspense and creepiness! I loved it!
