Hey guys! I haven’t made a T5W post in a long time. I really couldn’t think of books to fit the theme most of the time and/or had other posts on the same day so I didn’t wanna post twice. Anyways, I thought this week was one I could definitely do, so let’s jump into this week’s T5W topic:
Books You’ve Read Because of Booktube/Blogging/etc.
Discuss the books you’ve picked up because you’ve heard of them in the online book community or platform you use
1) Even the Darkest Stars
I read this one because I saw my friends review of it on her blog. She and I have very similar taste in books so I had a good feeling I’d like it as well. I ended up LOVING this book ❤ I got it as an ARC and you can check out my Even the Darkest Stars Review here.
2) They Both Die at the End
This was one that I saw coming up a lot in the blogs I follow. Everyone seemed to love it so I thought “hey, I should check this out”. I immediately liked the concept for the story, a world where people get a notice the day they’re supposed to die so that they have time to get their affairs in order and make the most of their last day. This was another ARC I was lucky enough to get. Here’s my They Both Die at the End Review.
This is another really popular book that came up a lot. It was always on people’s lists for favorite books (usually retellings). I recently got into retellings and knowing that so many people liked the series I put it on my TBR. I didn’t actually read it until one of my Goodreads groups had it for that month’s buddy read. You can check out my Cinder Review here.
4) The Hundredth Queen
Another one I saw on my friend’s blog. I’d also seen it on a few other blogs I follow as well. Reviews on this one were kinda mixed. You either loved it or hated it, but knowing that my friend and I tend to like the same things I decided to request it on NetGalley and I do not regret it ❤ I really loved this one and you can find the review for The Hundredth Queen here.
Last, but not least! Caraval was super popular for a while. You found it everywhere and it was another book you either loved or hated. I for one liked it a lot. Maybe not as much as others, but I still thought it was pretty good. My review for Caraval can be found here.
