This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by the Broke and the Bookish) focuses on your favourite reads of the first half of the year. I’m only including five because, while I’ve enjoyed a lot of the books I’ve read so far this year, there aren’t very many that have earned the title of “favourite”. Here we go:
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
This was my first Morgan Matson read, and I’m very disappointed in myself that it took me this long to read one of her books. I’ve been missing out. Full review here.
The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace
I know that everyone’s been over the moon about Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur, and these look similar. But The Princess Saves Herself in This One moved me in a way that Milk and Honey did not. I’m not a poet, and I haven’t interacted with enough poetry to feel like I can adequately review or critique a poetry book, so I won’t. But I will tell you that I thoroughly recommend The Princess Saves Herself in This One by Amanda Lovelace.
