Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
It has now been moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl.
This happens to me more than I’d care to admit, I can remember the absolute bare minimum about a lot of books and nothing else. Even some of my absolute favorite books! So this topic is pretty easy for me to discuss since I have quite a few books that fit the description.
These are in no particular order and I will link up reviews if I have them.
10.) Glitter by Aprilynne Pike
This one didn’t blow me away or anything but it was an interesting book, very unique! It’s a dystopian book where people quite literally “party like it’s 18th century France” and a girl trying to escape Versailles before she’s married to the king agrees to start selling a drug called “glitter”. Like I said it’s pretty creative and an overall fun read.
9.) Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova
I loved this book, it was such a fun read filled with magic and diverse characters. But, I really don’t remember it that well! The sequel is finally being released this year though so perhaps I’ll need to do a re-read!
8.) The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas
I recommend this book all the time because it’s fantastic but in all honesty I don’t remember details about it anymore. This may have to do with the fact that it’s been a while since I read it, I read it SUPER fast, and it’s a psychological mystery/thriller and the twists were great….and very twisty so I have a hard time remembering 100% what all went down!
7.) The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
This was surprisingly awesome, I never would have thought I’d love a YA Fantasy novel with a girl in a ballroom gown on the cover. I actually went through this one very fast and I also read the sequel so all I have left is the third book, however, I may need to do a re-read because I don’t really remember what the heck happened!
6.) The Impostor Queen by Sarah Fine
This is a very underrated book with a strong female protagonist and a very unique magic system. I do really want to continue with the series but I read this book 2 years ago so I think I might need to do a re-read of this one as well before I go on.
5.) Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
By this I mean the entire series because I read them sooooo long ago that I could only tell you the beginning stuffs and end stuffs and maybe a few things in between like character deaths. I really should do a series re-read because I did really like it but I’m also kind of scared to because I feel like it wouldn’t live up to my memories of it. But you never know!
4.) Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
I read this way back in middle school (or maybe even late elementary school? I really don’t remember) so I don’t remember anything other then there were “uglies” and “pretties”, basically the synopsis. Once again a series I’d like to maybe re-read but might not be as great as I remember.
3.) Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
I actually bought the first book ONLY because it was a bargain book at a bookstore and looked neat. I had no idea I was in for such a treat, this is a steampunk, alternate history book. It’s set during WWI and both factions comprise their armies of either steampunk machines or mutated creatures (I don’t know how else to describe it). It’s awesome, the whole series was awesome, but I don’t remember much about it obviously.
2.) Gone by Michael Grant
Another book/series I read back in high school that I enjoyed while reading but really don’t remember much about. I know there were aliens and super powers but other than that I know nothing! And they just released a continuation of the series and I’m curious about it……
1.) Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
I did like “Inkheart” but I loved the two sequels a TON more, still they were all great books. I honestly could gush all day about this series and I really want to re-read it one day here just to feel the nostalgia!
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
Do you have any favorite books that you don’t remember much about?
