Top Ten Tuesday: Recent 5-Star Reads

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Check out their blog for upcoming TTT topics, and to link up to your post if you’ve written one!

Today’s theme is: 10 Of My Most Recent 5 Star Reads (Or Ten Of The Best Books I’ve Read Recently)

I’m a picky reader, so I don’t give out 5 stars easily! But these are the most recent 10 books I’ve given 5 stars on Goodreads. (A few of these are re-reads, but I’m going to count those anyway. :P) Ordered from least to most recent.

Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin


Through the Woods by Emily Carroll


Lumberjanes, Vol. 1: Beware the Kitten Holy by Noelle Stevenson


Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4) by Marissa Meyer


Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling


Unwind by Neal Shusterman


The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie


Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter, #2) by J.K. Rowling


UnWholly (Unwind, #2) by Neal Shusterman


As you can see, I’ve been doing a lot of re-reads lately. And I’ve also been on a bit of a graphic novel kick, since I’m trying to read more graphic novels/comic books this year (and I’m not super familiar with the genre––so if you have any recommendations, please let me know!). 🙂

How about you guys?

  • Do we share any 5-star/favorite books?
  • If you also wrote a TTT post, please link me to it! I’m always on the lookout for book recs. 😀

  1. I have thought about joining this meme but sometimes the list options don’t really appeal to me. This one does though!!
    I’m also very picky because I find myself being an amatur editor while I read lol

    My top 5 star reads within the last 12 months I think ish…
    A time to Die: Nadine Brandes
    A time to Speak: Nadine Brandes
    The Choice: Amanda Tru
    The Locket: Amanda Tru
    Today: Amanda Tru
    First of her Kind: K.L. Schwengel (sp??)
    The Restorer: Sword of Lyric

    Btw (hides) I’ve never read any of the Harry Potter books…(runs away)

    1. It’s a fun meme, and it’s usually pretty quick to do! And it’s a good way to find book recs and cool book blogs. 😀 I don’t do it every week, though. Like you said, sometimes I’m not really inspired by the theme. But when a good one comes up, I participate!

      I haven’t heard of any of those, but I will look them up!

      Haha that’s ok. I actually didn’t read them until a few years ago. There was just sooo much hype about them when I was a kid, it kind of turned me off from reading the series; I don’t really know why, I guess because I thought I was too cool for them, lol. But I finally read them in high school and really enjoyed them! And I’m loving them even more as I re-read them. They’re a lot of fun and have so many great characters. 🙂

      1. I tend to stay away from books that are hyped too. Except apparently the Hunger Games, which I picked up pretty quick. I’ve watched all the Harry Potter movies within the last 2 years so I’ve got a handle on the storyline and characters. Everyone keeps saying how awesome the books are so…maybe someday. Sometimes I like long books, sometimes I don’t like long books…maybe I don’t like reading hyped books b/c I’m afraid I’ll be disappointed.
        I finally finished that Writer Q and A tag. Takes me forever to find people to tag 🙂

        1. It depends for me. Nowadays I’m more willing to try hyped books, but only if I think I might like them to begin with. (Also I usually seek out the opinions of my most-trusted reviewers first, haha.) But yeah, I also am always nervous about trying a super-hyped book because I don’t want to be disappointed. And I’m also intimidated by really long books, so I understand that too. Oh yay, I will check out your post! Haha same here, I am so bad at tagging people. 😛
