Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is 10 Of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads.
I feel like I’ve already praised most of these to death, but hey — if a book is that good, it’s always worth talking about again! My top ten, in no particular order:
1) Breakup by Dana Stabenow: I can’t help raving about this terrific series!
2) And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie: My first Christie, finally!
3) Lock In by John Scalzi (review): Fascinating sci-fi.
4) All the Winters After by Seré Prince Halverson (review): Love and Alaska – what could be better?
5) The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian (review): Disturbing, shocking, and moving.
6) In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters (review): So far, every one of this author’s books has been a 5-star read for me.
7) Uprooted by Naomi Novik (review): Utterly magical and absorbing.
8) Alex + Ada by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn (review): An amazing graphic novel trilogy.
9) Depth by Lev AC Rosen (review): Sci-fi noir — a detective story set in the drowned city of New York.
10) The Marvels by Brian Selznick (review): This author continues to amaze with his words-and-pictures approach to storytelling.
