Books I Forget To Recommend!

Top Ten Tuesday(64)

These are just a few books that I feel like I don’t talk about enough on my blog but still enjoyed! They could use a little more love!

I will link up reviews if I have them!

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco

This is the book I read the most recently on this list and I STILL feel like I don’t mention it enough! I absolutely loved Chupeco’s other book “The Girl From The Well” and so I was ecstatic when I got an ARC of “The Bone Witch” which is YA Fantasy, my favorite genre! This is a very dark fantasy story and I absolutely loved the writing style and world building, although the pacing could be slow at times.

Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova

A diverse and magical read that I feel doesn’t get enough love! The cover is absolutely gorgeous and I loved the magic system as well as the family dynamic!

Paper Princess by Erin Watt

I loved this book so much I couldn’t express my love in a review quite yet, I’m probably going to do a mini review here sometime. This was extremely addictive and kept me turning pages, it’s a very “trashy” novel in the same way that soap operas are “trashy”. They definitely hold your attention with their drama!

Welcome To The Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz

A YA horror book that has some great characters and is pretty fast paced, it reads exactly like your traditional slasher horror movie but with some unique twists. Definitely a great book for any YA horror lovers out there!

A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann

This book was a very unique blend of horror and thriller where a group of kids become trapped in an ancient underground palace in France. I don’t want to give too much away but this book will definitely get your adrenaline pumping!

The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine

The magic system and world building in this book are FANTASTIC and so, so unique! Those two reasons alone are enough for me to recommend this book!

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey

A historical fiction with monsters! Woohoo! Plus the Doctor is pretty swoon-worthy and the monsters are actually pretty terrifying and gory. Definitely not a book for the squeamish or faint of heart!

Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

I did enjoy this book but still had a couple problems with it but Kate, the MC, is pretty badass! Plus there really aren’t enough YA western books and that cover is so gorgeous!

The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow

This book definitely won’t be up everyone’s alley but I enjoyed it a lot, it’s about an insane(ly, funny) AI that took over the world and uses the world leader’s children as hostages to keep world peace. It’s awesome.

Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor

Do I need reasons to recommend any of Laini Taylor’s books? Her world building and mythology is flawless and her writing is so, so beautiful!

    The only one I’ve read is Lips Touch and I love it so much. The only qualm I have is that the first story is too short – I wanted more! xx

      Agreed! I loved the first story and it definitely needed to be longer and on the other hand the last story was a bit too long, they should have split those more evenly! Still a fantastic book though! 🙂

    Adding some of these to my TBR list! I couldn’t get in to either of Rin Chupeco’s books though. It is so fascinating to see vastly different opinions about the same book. That is why I love reading!

      Awesome, I hope you enjoy the ones that you added!
      There definitely are a lot of different opinions on The Bone Witch especially, I’ve seen a lot of people who didn’t enjoy it and people like me who did! I agree it definitely is very interesting to see so many different opinions on the same book! That is one of the fun parts of reading! 🙂

        Definitely, and I really hate seeing people criticize others for their book opinions. That is why we read, because the stories are so subjective that we can all get different things out of them!

    I loved Labyrinth Lost and Welcome to the Dark House!! Nearly all of the rest are on my TBR. I’m especially interested in The Bone Witch and A Drop of Night – so I’m glad you enjoyed them 😀

      I have a feeling you’ll probably enjoy both The Bone Witch and A Drop of Night since they’re both pretty dark and sometimes terrifying, plus we seem to have similar tastes! 🙂

    I love that I’m not the only one who thought Dr. Winthrop from Monstrumologist was swoon worthy! Man, I love that series!
