Surprising Reads || T5W

Top Five Wednesday is hosted by Goodreads T5W group.

The past year has been full of reads that just haven’t been hitting for me. A lot of three stars and unmemorable books. Reading wasn’t bringing me joy to say the least.

However! Five is an easy enough list take recall some books that not only stood out, but genuinely had me shook with how unexpectedly enjoyable they were. And these genuinely have stuck in my mind even now, which is a feat in and of itself, aha.

Short list is short, right?


I have quite the diverse list, yeah? But, this is my trying new genres era, we’re moving away from my regular old YA and trying to get out of my comfort zone. Which, is. probably why these stood out– we know I have a type, hahaha. However, what are some reads that managed to surprise you? What makes a book surprising? Let me know in the comments below!
