Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week’s theme is ‘Books I Bought/Borrowed Because…’ and because I watch a lot of booktube in my spare time, I decided to talk about the books I bought thanks to the booktubers who recommended them!
The Awesome by Eva Darrows: I first saw Elizabeth @ booksandpieces mention this one, and as soon as she mentioned the dynamic between the heroine, Maggie, and her mother I knew I had to pick up a copy. I ended up having a lot of fun with this one!
A Winter’s Promise by Christelle Dabos; translated by Hildegarde Serle: This one did the rounds on booktube when it was first translated into English, and I was intrigued enough to pick up a copy when it was released in paperback. Sadly I ended up DNFing this one!
The Diviners by Libba Bray: This is another one that I feel like I saw around booktube when it was first released, but it’s been monica kim‘s gushing about this series over the years that finally convinced me to read it last year and I loved it!
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black: This is another that did the rounds across booktube and the blogosphere, and I saw so many rave reviews I just had to give it a try and it ended up being the first book by Holly Black I really enjoyed!
Peter Darling by Austin Chant: I had to get my hands on a copy of this book after I saw Adriana @ perpetualpages talk about it. I didn’t love it as much as they did, but I still enjoyed it and I’m so glad I read it.
Entreat Me by Grace Draven: I have Jean @ Bookishthoughts for bringing Grace Draven to my attention, who’s now a go-to romantasy author for me! I couldn’t resist getting a copy of Entreat Me when I heard Jean talk about it and I loved it a lot.
The Book of Human Skin by Michelle Lovric: I actually first came across this novel at uni when my friend Elena bought a copy, but it was Simon @ SavidgeReads who reminded me about it a few years later when it popped up during one of his book hauls. I need to cross this one off my TBR!
