Top Ten Tuesday: My Most Recent 5 Star Reads


Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's theme is My Most Recent 5 Star Reads.  Below, I've listed my most recent five star reads beginning with the most recent and I've linked the titles either to my review, or the book's Goodreads page.  


The Dark Days Club (Lady Helen #1) by Alison Goodman


Magritte's Marvelous Hat by D.B. Johnson


Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer


Black Heart (The Curse Workers #3) by Holly Black


Unstoppable (Un... #2) by Bill Nye


Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses by Kimberly Dean


Illuminae (The Illuminae Files #1) by Amie Kaufman




The Walking Dead, Volume 18, 19, and 20 by Robert Kirkman


The Shadow Throne (The Ascendance Trilogy #3) by Jennifer A. Nielsen


Lumberjanes, Volume 1 by Noelle Stevenson


So, what do you think of my list?  Have you read any of these and did you enjoy them as much as me by any chance (it's okay if you didn't)?  Do you have any recommendations for me?  What are some of the books that have made your list this week?

      Thanks for sharing!

  2. I adored Lady Helen too.

    I've been watching the Walking Dead (mostly through my fingers as I keep covering my eyes!) so well done for keeping pace with the books as well :-)

  4. Illuminae I agree with... quite the book. I like that there's some graphic novels on here also- I've been reading more of those lately.

  6. You've got some great picks here Lauren! I absolutely love Winter and Illuminae! They're on my list as well. :) I've been wanting to read the Curse Workers Series for a while now, but haven't heard too much. Here is my TTT!

    1. You should really try The Curse Workers series - it's one of my all time favorites!

      Delete
  7. THE SHADOW THRONE! That's one of my favorites. I love Jaron and I think this last book in the trilogy had me metaphorically biting my nails. It's so good!

    That first one looks really good. As does the Holly Black one. I hear a lot about her but haven't had the chance to read her yet.

  8. I haven't read any of these books yet. Winter has been sitting on my shelf staring at me for months, I really need to read it soon.

    The cover for Magritte's Marvelous Hat made me chuckle a little. There are some other books on this list that I plan on reading as soon as I have time to.

  20. Yay Illuminae!! I bought Dark Days a few weeks back and I'm excited to get around to reading it. I'm also hoping to start The Lunar Chronicles series really soon. I wasn't a huge fan of Lumberjanes, but I'm thinking of re-reading it and seeing if I change my mind.
