Hello everybody! I hope everybody is having a great day! March went quick didn’t it? It felts like I haven’t read a lot, but there is still three days and I’m hoping to get through two books in that time period. Wish me luck!
Anyway, today isn’t a Top Ten list but more of a Top 5 list. The official theme for this was is 10 Of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads or you can do Top Ten Recent 1 star reads or mix it up and so on and so forth. But as I’ve been checking my reviews I haven’t been giving a lot of books 5 stars. I mean, I’ve been reading a lot of books that are great and are around 4.5 and 4.75 and the only book I’ve scored under 3 stars this year was Room which was 2.75.
So this post is just going to be top 5 recent roarin reads that I feel like I need to shout and scream about!
Now onto the books!
Some have you have already seen my review of this brilliant books (which is here if you want to check it out) but basically this book was so good! A solid 4.5/5 for me and it did what a book sequel should always want you to do- read on. People have already told me that the series still gets better so I need Cress right now.
I hope you guys aren’t sick and tired of me gushing about this series because I haven’t! It wouldn’t be fair to all of the other glorious books if this trilogy took up more than half of the spaces. So basically if you haven’t read this trilogy, WHAT ARE YOU DOING!? This is one of my favourite series ever because it is so merciless to the characters and to the reader. Morning Star was to die for and Pierce Brown has now become an automatic buy author now. I can’t give any higher praise then that.
This sequel was just so badass and so action packed and raw and suspenseful I had to give it a five star rating. Maas’ writing was just so brilliant and clear you never really got confused during the action scenes (and there were plenty of those!) and she balanced out all of the action with some vital info-dumping so that we understood our favourite assassin and her situation better. I’m in the middle of Heir of Fire and I’m loving that too.
I read this beautiful, beautiful book back in January so it isn’t ‘recent’ as such but oh my gosh it was so beautiful (and I don’t care if I said beautiful three times in one sentence because it is!)! The charcaters were just so authentic and I know people had a kind of problem with Ari but ARI WAS CUTE AND CONFLICTED! And I need to sequel which is coming out like right now!
This is a manga but I’m still including it because it was so good and a five star read! The artwork in it was so gorgeous and also just the careful selection of words. You just want to hug Keneki to pieces while reading it but also slap him and tell him to suck it up and deal with it. Fantastic!
Those are my recent roarin’ reads! I think there’s a mix up there- we have two fantasies, a sci-fi trilogy, a contemporary and a manga! Are there any up above that you have read and gave a high rating? Or recommend me one of your recent 5 star reads!
I’ll write soon!
