Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books That Surprised Me (in a good or bad way). It was a little hard come up with books for this list, so I had to browse my Goodreads shelf for ideas. I hope you enjoy my list!
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo // This book really surprised me in a good way. I still remember being hesitant to pick this up. I was at the bookstore with my best friend and had a discussion about buying Six of Crows. She doesn’t read fantasy, but it was helpful for me to talk to her about it. I ended up buying it and falling in love.
Born A Crime by Trevor Noah // This is another book that I was reluctant to read, but happy that I gave it chance. I was blown away by the storytelling and how much I could relate to some of Trevor Noah’s experience. This book is funny, personal, and addresses serious topics in an unexpected way.
Saga, Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples // I think I read a sample of this in 2016. I fell in love and went back to the comic shop for the full volume as soon as I finished the sample. It was different from anything I had read that year and I loved every moment of it.
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer // I picked up Cinder because I was bored last summer. I saw a few people mention The Lunar Chronicles on Instagram and IRL, but it didn’t sound interesting to me. I was wrong. The Lunar Chronicles is in my top 10 favorite series.
