Top Ten Tuesday

I Can’t Believe I Enjoyed This Book!

I don’t like sad stories and I don’t know what made me pick this up but I’m REALLY glad I did because it was one of my favs of 2015.  If you haven’t read it, I strongly recommend it.

I don’t read adult fiction because I try to read as much YA as possible so that I can recommend as many books to my teen patrons as possible.  Many of my coworkers were raving about this book as well as the book world and I don’t like to miss the bus or…train, on book trends so I gave it a go.  This is a polarizing book and I really liked it.  I always enjoy an unreliable narrator and a psycho.

I’d heard of magical realism but decided that it wasn’t for me and then about a year ago I had nothing to read; so I picked it up.  This book got weird real quick and because I’ve decided to not DNF books anymore, I kept going and I’m so glad I did.  This book was amazing and Ruby is a lovely person and it was my 2nd fav or 2015.  I’m also happy to say that it won the Printz award for best YA fiction of 2015.  If you like mysteries; feminism; and a thinker, read Bone Gap.

I had to read this for a book club but I’ve always wanted to read it anyway because I’m fascinated by the story.  I thought the writing was beautiful and although it wasn’t the story I’ve seen in the movies, I’m glad I read it.

Once again, I don’t read adult fiction and this falls in the new adult category.  I don’t know what possessed me to read this but because of it, Schwab has become one of my new favorite authors.  Her writing is so creative.

I loathe historical fiction and I’ll only read it if I have to.  And I didn’t really like Graudin’s first book but because this was speculative, I read it.  It was a good book and I recommend it all the time.

Because I’ve been told that I’m very critical of books, I can only come up with 6 books.  Did any of these make your list?
