TTT | First Ten Books I Reviewed

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s prompt is: the first ten books you reviewed. Mine have all been on my blogs, both past and present so this was quite a straightforward one for me!

Here Lies Bridget | Paige Harbison

Here Lies Bridget
This was the first book I reviewed on my first blog and although it made the cut to my wordpress blog initially, I’ve since made it private. Summary: a bit slow and predictable, not my cup of tea.

Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan

Crazy Rich Asians
Again, an oldie. The summary was; fun but overstuffed.

Fangirl| Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl
Loved this book! Summary: highly relatable for anyone nerdy, a fun read and perfect for anyone in that transitional period that is the first year of uni.

The Accident Season | Moira Fowley-Doyle

Picked this one up during work experience at Penguin. Summary: spooky, beautiful writing and a hint of magical realism

Beauty Queens | Libba Bray

Beauty-Queens-book-cover
Recommended by booktube! Summary: lord of the flies meets beauty pageants. Hilariously satirical but perhaps better as a film?

The Year of Living Danishly | Helen Russell

The Year of Living Danishly

Picked up at work experience with Icon books, non-fiction. Summary: a journalist and her husband up and move their lives to Denmark and each chapter explores different parts of the living life in the happiest nation in the world. (Side note: when I first read this I was totally enamoured with the idea of Denmark and Scandi socialism but have since become more cynical with it…)

The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories| HitRecord & Joseph Gordon-Levitt

The Tiny Book
Small in size and filled with images, poems and tiny stories. So cute and would make an excellent present.

The Bees | Laline Paull

Written from the perspective of a bee, set in a beehive, a weird dystopian novel. Strangest book I have ever read and definitely an experience. I would recommend it!

And Then There Were None | Agatha Christie

And Then There Were None
The only crime writer I ever read and this book is fantastic, with 10 guests, all with something to hide dying slowly after being invited to a mansion on an island.

Skin and Other Stories
A brief look at some of Roald Dahl’s adult fiction short stories. Dark and brilliant, probably some of my favourite stuff by Dahl.

Happy Tuesday! I’ve been enjoying the long, lush weather during this Easter weekend and a Top Ten Tuesday is the best post to get back into the blogging spirit (which I have been lacking recently…). What have you read from this list?
