Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these posts, but I’ve finally found one that interested me, so here I am again! This week we’re talking about the 10 most recent reads. I’m really excited to share this one with you all because I’m actually reading consistently since moving!
1. The Boy Who Steals Houses by C.G. Drews
I unfortunately did not get into this book and ended up quitting it. Still, I hope to read more by Drews in the future!
2. The Mushroom Fan Club by Elise Gravel
I shared a little about this book yesterday, it truly is an adorable kid’s lit read.
3. Lord Brocktree by Brian Jacques
This isn’t my favorite Redwall read, but it was still a pretty great one. I loved all the hares! Though honestly I’m most excited to read more about the otters. 😀
4. I’ll Be The One by Lyla Lee
I thought this was a very cute YA read. It was fun and easy and I loved seeing bisexual and other queer characters in it!
5. Home Body by Rupi Kaur
You all know my thoughts on this if you’ve read my review. If you haven’t the summary is, I just felt like it was too simplistic and that Kaur never got to the meat of her subjects.
6. Mary Magdalene Revealed by Meggan Watterson
Another 1 star read from lately. Poorly written. And I wanted to learn so much from it!
7. It Didn’t Start With You by Mark Wolynn
This is actually a book I thought I would love, but by the end I was troubled with some pretty problematic thoughts from Wolynn. I’ll have a review for this book out soon where I explain more!
8. Once Upon a Dream by Charles Solomon
This was another book that I thought would have more history in it, but really ended up being an overview of the two films, Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent. Which don’t get me wrong, was interesting. But I was looking for something a little different.
9. Forget “Having It All” by Amy Westervelt
This was a random choice that I picked up while browsing my new library, and wow! What a fantastic read. And I’m reading it at such a good time in my life, being currently pregnant. 😀 I can’t wait to share a review of it with you all.
10. If They Come For Us by Fatimah Asghar
I’m trying to get back into reading poetry consistently because I feel like it’s really helping me with my own poetry writing. This is a book I own and have now read twice, highly recommend Asghar’s work to you all.
What have you been reading lately? If you enjoyed my post please consider checking out my other reviews of books and film as well as my cooking posts under the tag “weekend cooking”. I write about queerness, polyamory and my normal life as well. You could also consider tipping me through Ko-Fi, which is basically the same as buying me a coffee! I also have a patreon that I am slowly putting life back into. Thank you for reading.
