Hi, friends! Today marks the start of me posting Top Ten Tuesday on my blog! Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. As I feel most comfortable with smaller numbers, I’ll be making a top 5 instead.
Without further ado, let’s get into my top 5 book titles with numbers in them!
🌙 5. Five Midnights by Ann Dávila Cardinal
Admittedly, this wasn’t my favorite book. But it was the first time I’d read a fantasy/horror set in Puerto Rico, where my family is from! For that, I have to include it on this list in case anybody wants to check it out~
🌙 4. Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas
After I read this book for the first time, I made my coworkers read it as well for a feel-good fun time. I’ve sold it to several customers since then, pitching it as “The Breakfast Club in a department store on Christmas”. I donated my copy to the library a few years ago, after it received a lot of love from my friends and I. I hope it’s found some loving readers since then!
🌙 3. Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have) by Sarah Mlynowski
I remembered this book because I’m currently reading a bind-up of two Sarah Mlynowski books and love how funny it is! All of her books are easy and quick reads that always leave me with a smile on my face. While they usually read on the younger side of YA, this is one that I’d consider the exception. Still, it reminded me of my love of lists!
🌙 2. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao
I have a confession: I picked this up initially because of the paperback cover. I mean, look at it. Fantasies can be a hit or miss for me, but I’m so glad that this wasn’t! I think I even loved the sequel even more, a rarity for tons of bookworms. This Evil Queen origin story retelling was one of my favorites of this year so far~
🌙 1. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I know, nobody is shocked. This book received so much hype on booktube and although I’m definitely not one for historical fiction, I decided to try it out. I’m so glad I did. This book made me experience so many emotions, and I’ve been thinking about it more and more recently as I’ve been reading TJR’s backlist books. She really has a way of making realistic and unforgettable characters, but it truly shines through in this novel. If you haven’t checked out this book yet, please do yourself the favor of giving it a read!
