First Ten Reviews of 2019

Top Ten Tuesday was created by  The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.

Now I’m going to do actual, fully fledged reviews because I did DNF a book… and that one sentence doesn’t feel like enough for me.

So… here are the first ten reviews of the year in order… ft. some excerpts of my said reviews.

✰✰✰.6

{Review} I don’t read many anthologies. As a matter of fact, I’ve only read two, including this one. And I’d call this particular one special. I can definitely find pieces of myself and my experiences in each of these stories, which probably is what led me to connect with it in general.

✰✰

{Review} I can’t say I hated it, yet… I wasn’t having fun. I’m intrigued enough to maybe? read the sequel, but as for a first in a series? This wasn’t anything that excited me…

✰✰✰✰

{Review} The characters 100% made this book. If you put the found family trope in a book, I am sold. And the banter, the loyalty and love between them all made me warm… and then broke my heart in the end.

✰✰✰✰✰

{Review} I had no idea what I was getting into when I read this. I knew vaguely that cults and doomsday was a huge factor in the plot, but overall I went into this as blind as possible… and I honestly can’t find any flaws. It was that good for me.

✰✰✰✰

{Review} I don’t remember the last time a book had me clamoring to become the next Sherlock, but here we are.

✰✰✰✰

{Review} I just appreciated this story on angry girls being unapologetically angry, doing what needs to be done because no one will do it for them, because in a world where women only have one job, they’re underestimated.

✰✰✰

{Review} I didn’t hate this book. I may be griping on about it, but it had a lot of potential, it’s quick and I can’t say I’m mad I’d read it.

✰✰✰✰

{Review} You ever go into a book, thinking you’d remain a spectator? And as you continue reading, you find it’s much more personal to your life than you were ready for?

That was me.

✰✰✰✰

{Review} I may be biased, since Henry’s books are made for me, but are we shocked I loved this? Are we shocked that I may or may not have cried? Spoiler, I did.

✰✰✰

{Review} Okay, first off: I went into this expected something completely different. I was expecting a graphic novel. However, I still really enjoyed this. It’s short and a light story to knock out if you want some fantasy that doesn’t require too much thinking.

As you can see, my reads for the first part of the year have been… a bit mediocre, save a few golden gems ❤ . Tell me how your year has been reading wise in the comments below!
