It’s that time of the week again, friends! We’re back with another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is: books with single-word titles! This prompt was submitted by Kitty @ Kitty Marie’s Reading Corner (who you should definitely go follow right now)!
What would I ever do without Goodreads? I would fail, that’s what. I would never be able to do these posts because my memory fails so hard. I really couldn’t come up with one title until I looked at several lists on GR and realised that I have read a few books with single-word titles! Plus, plenty of them are actually books from series that I love, so I can’t believe that I couldn’t think of any titles to start 😂
Another week, another list, another appearance of Illuminae. Not only did the story suck me right in, the mixed media format was so much fun to read! It’s not everyone’s cuppa but I absolutely loved it!
I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy stories inspired by Greek mythology and Miller didn’t disappoint with Circe. Her writing is so beautifully dreamlike and it swept me away in this tale!
Can someone just take me here already? I want to experience the magic of Caraval and Legendary! Yeah, some bits do sound terrifying but also, so much fun?! Magic!
The Lunar Chronicles is one of my all time favourite series. Such fantastical sci-fi retellings of some of our favourite classics. I hadn’t read anything like it before and Cinder hooked me right in!
Scythe is an amazing introduction to a crazy dystopian future where no one can willingly die, there’s no disease, poverty, crime or corruption. The only way you can die (and stay dead) is if you’re gleaned by a Scythe. Such an amazing premise and the story doesn’t disappoint. I highly recommend this series!
I have a weird attachment to Persuasion because I read it during a pretty rough personal time. I just needed to find a spark of hope and little did I know when I started reading it, that this would give me just what I was looking for! It has a solid place in my list of favourites 💙
Neverwhere was my first book by Gaiman and there was no looking back after that. I was taken by surprise and fell hard and fast for his writing and storytelling. It’s weird/quirky but amazing!
I was pulled out of one of the roughest reading slumps that I’ve ever experienced by Verity. This book sucked me in and it had me SHOOK, friends. SHOOKETH!!! 🤯
Wonder was the first MG book I read as an adult and wow, I did not expect to get so emotional reading Auggie’s story. I loved how supportive his family was. They weren’t perfect but they tried! I’d definitely recommend this heartwarming story 💙
