This week’s TTT is PERFECT for me! After a library trip, a friend loaning me a ton of books, and a visit to Barnes and Noble where I spent waay too much money, I’ll actually be reading some hyped books soon! I have enough books now to write my very first book haul, and I’ll be doing that within the next few days, but until then, here’s Ten Hyped Books I’ve Never Read!
Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly link-up in the community hosted by The Broke and The Bookish where they provide a prompt and other lovers of listmaking join in on it with their own top ten list. Feel free to check them out!
Aaaand I’m back with Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s prompt is a freebee, but I’ve decided to go with The Broke and The Bookish’s prompt for it. It’s a good one! Especially since I’ve heard that Romance is one of the least favorite genres among bloggers. And I’d have to say, I agree, for the most part. But something about romance in ANOTHER genre, like a cherry on top, always appeals to me- especially when it’s well done. Here are my Top Three picks! (Yes, I’m cheating, but to be fair I’m only putting books I absolutely loved in this post. Quality over quantity, people.)
For those who love sci-fi:
1) Cress by Marissa Meyer
Cress is on the top of the list for a reason: it is amazing in so many ways, with so many great moments; I loved this book. But one of my favorite things was the romance between Cress and Captain Thorne, which was less like a romance and more like a fangirl’s obsession and a player’s flirting at the beginning, that really bloomed into something significant. I have so many excerpts in mind that I could insert for this post, but I wouldn’t want to spoil anything! How can I say this book NEEDS to be read in the way that I feel it? But that’s impossible. Just know that it’s amazing. Scarlet, the second in this series also had a good romance side-plot, but Cress takes the cake.
