Top Ten Recent Reads that I gave 5 stars

Tuesday, April 5, 2016

Link up here

First, I know this was last week's theme. But I was on vacation and already had it typed up. So I'm posting it this week instead of the great book bloggers theme this week. Sorry!

I tried to mix things up some, I had quite a few multiple books in a series that I have recently marathon read with 5 stars. For those, I just gave one book in the series. I also did not include the rereads I have recently done. Only first time reads were included... so here are my top 10 most recent 5 star reads!

1. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo - I finally read this book this month, and just as I expected... I LOVED it. It was phenomenal. I can't put into words how much I enjoyed it.
2. End of Days by Susan Ee - This is the final book in the Penry and the End of Days series... and definitely my favorite of the series. I really enjoyed the whole series. I marathoned through because I couldn't live with the cliff hangers. They are pretty quick reads and I highly recommend them.
3. The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury - I loved loved loved loved loved this book. It will definitely be one of my favorite reads this year.
4. The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace - I really enjoyed this book. I was between 4 and 5 stars.. but I rated up because I loved it. This is a great fantasy story about a young girl that comes from a family of carnival people or gypsies if you will.
5. Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes - This is the 4th book in the Falling Kingdoms Series and this series just keeps getting better and better. This is my favorite in the series so far and I cannot wait until the end of the year for the 5th book.

6. Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout - I loved this series. Probably more than I enjoyed the Lux Series. I couldn't put it down... it helps that I'm kind of in love with Aiden.
7. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff - This is not my typical book. I'm not a big sci-fi person. But, I loved how unique and engaging this book was. It was so wonderful.
8. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard - I think if you read my review, I gave this one 4 stars.. but I bumped it up to 5 stars... because I really loved this book. I cannot wait for the sequel... why is 2017 so fa away?!
9. The Rising by Kelley Armstrong - This is the final book in the Darkness Rising Trilogy and I really enjoyed this series. I read all 3 books in 2 days. I haven't read any of Armstrong's other books but I plan to soon.
10. To all the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han - I've been on a total fantasty kick recently, but I did really enjoy this duology, especially this first book. Such a cute cute read. Great for spring contemporary moods if you are looking for that.


  1. Ooooh niiiice!!! I've read 2 out if the first 5 and still need to read the others! LOVED Half Blood and The Rising!! Still need to read Truthwitch and I'm still debating over Illuminae!

  2. I've been wanting to read End of Days but too much time has passed since I read the second book of the series and now I can't remember what's happened. Has this ever happened to you

  3. Oh, I want to read many of these books! I have read so little this year and only a few are 5 stars.
