Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Enjoyed But Rarely Talk About


Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Books I Enjoyed But Rarely Talk About. Some of the wide variety of books on my list are recent reads, but others I read a while back - either way, I highly recommend all of them.  Here we go, in alphabetical order by title:


Across a Broken Shore by Amy Trueblood


The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan


The Black Moon (Poldark #5) by Winston Graham


The Dark Days Pact (Lady Helen #2) by Alison Goodman


Ink and Ashes by Valynne E. Maetani


The Mercury 13 by Martha Ackmann


My Sister Lives on the Mantlepiece by Annabel Pitcher


These Ruthless Deeds (These Vicious Masks #2) by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas


Unbound (Magic Ex Libris #3) by Jim C. Hines


William Shakespeare's Get Thee Back to the Future by Ian Doescher


Have you read any of these books?  What are some books you love but don't talk about often?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  1. I was hot and cold about The Astonishing Color of After. I hate it when adults leave kids alone in their grief, but then I know that it is needed to tell the story.. My TTT list

    1. Very true - I usually dislike when parents are absent in their kids lives, but for some reason that element worked here.

  2. I keep thinking I've read something by Jim C. Hines but I haven't! One of these days, he's an author I hear good things about.

  3. I liked the first two books in These Vicious Masks, and should really try to finish the series. I thought the Astonishing Color of After was really beautiful. I loved the visuals the author created, and liked the use of magical elements to drive the story.

  7. I haven't read any of these. The Trueblood book sounds really good. I'm definitely going to add that one to my TBR. I have INK AND ASHES on my shelves somewhere. I've even had lunch with the author before :) I really need to actually read her book!

    Happy TTT!

    1. I'm really looking forward to that - there's so many more I'd like to see adapted! :)

  12. I tried The Dark Days Club back then but it wasn't for me. I gave it to my sister. The Astonishing Color of After is one of those books I've been eyeing though. I have a feeling that it's not a book for me but still considering that one.

    1. I can't recommend My Sister enough, especially on audio. David Tennant does a brilliant job with the narration.

  15. I loved The Astonishing Color of After! I don't tend to talk about it often, either, because it feels like it doesn't fit into a lot of lists? Weird. Unbound looks interesting. I might have to check out that series!

    1. I know what you mean about that. It is an awesome series.

  16. I've been wanting to read The Astonishing Color of After since it came out but still haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm glad to hear it was a great read for you.
