Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads

I've seen this meme on a lot of blogs and decided to join in. This meme was created by The Broke and Bookish. Every Tuesday there is a new topic that involves a list of ten books. 

My favorite thing to do on Brittany's Book Rambles is to share the books that I love. Some of you have seen me rave about these books here, on Twitter (especially on my #BBTC feature), and everywhere else that I can. But in case you missed them, here are my most recent 5 Stars reads.

This is one of my favorite books of all time! I will be forever raving about this book. 

Roshani's writing is so lush that it makes you want to weep from it's beauty. Seriously, if you want to see artful writing, check out this book.

Definitely, the best contemporary novel that I have ever read.

A Peter Pan retelling that I think would make  J. M. Barrie proud.

The world that Heidi comes up with in The Girl From Everywhere is phenomenal. Studio Ghibli needs to take a look at turning this into one of their animated films. 

Badass females in a twisty historical fiction, how can anyone not love that?

A swoony Rapunzel retelling that I just adore. It's a dark story (literally) with lovely characters and a romance that made me swoon.

The first word that comes to mind when thinking of Illuminae is BRILLANT. From the way the book is formatted, the characters, the story itself. It's just fantastic. 

You should all know by now how much I love Leigh and all of her work. I can't say enough about her books and I will love them forever. 

Best action book I've read in a long time. Full review coming soon but this one is definitely getting 5 stars from me!


What do you guys think of these books? Have you read them? Are they on your TBR? Love them? Hate them? I want to know ^_^

  3. The only one I've read is Illuminae, but oh my goodness, that book was GENIUS. Everything about it was so beautiful and unique-the format, the cover, the plot. ((Also I absolutely love Ezra <3))
    Basically everything else you listed I WANT TO READ SO BAD. Especially the Crown's Game (because my love for Russia is so extreme XD) and super excited about The Star-Touched Queen because I adore any kind of mythology. :D

    1. Genius is definitely the best way to describe Illuminae! And Ezra! *heart eyes*

      As a Russian, I can assure you that The Crown's Game nails our culture and language. It's really an amazing book and I love it so, so much.

      The Star-Touched Queen is just ART! I hope you love these books ^__^

    Plus, I'm starting the Grisha trilogy soon, and then I can move onto Six of Crows which sounds epic!

    1. The fact that you said you're going to read The Grisha Trilogy first before Six of Crows makes me sooo happy! I love all of Leigh's book and always recommend reading The Grisha trilogy first because you'll love Six of Crows that much more before of it. Trust me!

      Check out the rest of these books! You won't regret it ^_^

  17. I have just read Illuminae this month and WOW! What an experience it was, I am excited for Gemina if a little dissapointed that Kady isn't the MC. I have also read Six of Crows and if I could give it more than 5 Stars, I would! I haven't read any others on this list but I really want to read The Crowns Game.
