Tags. My old friends. We are back together again.
While there are a multitude of tags pasted across the internet these days, I prefer Tuesday tags to be from That Artsy Reader Girl’s page. Let’s discuss this week’s topic:
Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About
Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
This is such an emotional journey. Also. This was my introduction to Rev who has my soul forever. I mean. -swoon-.
Otherworld by Jason Segal and Kristin Miller
I don’t know anyone who has read this. It was not my normal genre, and I don’t even know why I initially picked it up. Yet, I ended being fascinated by this tech world. It’s a lighter sci-fi read and not the best book ever. But I still had a lot of fun reading this and the other two books and I’d love for someone else to pick it up and enjoy it in its simplicity.
Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan
This book got so intense near the end I had to stop listening to it (my first read was via audiobook) for over a week. I couldn’t take what was coming next and my heart ached for days after. I got this book such a long time ago on Amazon on a whim and I was so happy I did. I don’t talk about this nearly enough.
What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum
A very cute look at friendships and caring about people who are different from yourself. I love, love this story so much.
Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills
This is so underrated. This book was one of my first OwlCrate books, and I thought I’d hate it. It’s actually really great and I feel like I never get a chance to tell enough people about this book. I wish I could discuss it more.
Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi
I love middle grade. I read for pleasure and find it hard to dissect stories as much as other readers do. Middle grade is so simple, fun, and makes me reminisce a lot on my own youth and for that reason I love many middle grade books. This book was so fun and I loved the characters so much.
Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann
This book was a requirement for an American Indian course I was taking for school. I loved it so much I got in a physical and e-book format and have read it several times since then. It reads like fiction but it’s fascinating. I want to shout this book from rooftops.
Sammy Keyes (series) by Wendelin Van Draanen
Middle grade – I’m telling you. There are 18 books in this series, and this is quite a ride. I read some of these when I was actually in middle grade. I got the urge to re-read the series since each book is relatively small (compared to a lot of adult or YA books). I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH. Sammy is my character.
Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant
I don’t read horror at all. So, my opinion on this book is compared to absolutely nothing. But, this scared the
shit out of me. I don’t talk about this with anyone. Mostly because any friends I do have that read don’t read horror so it seems pointless to bring up.
House Rules by Jodi Picoult
Considering this is my favorite book, I do not talk about it nearly enough. I cry like a baby when reading this entire story. There’s something about Picoult’s writing and emotional characters I cannot get over. This book is amazing.
Well. That’s all folks!
What are some of the books on your list this week?? I’d love to see some thoughts on the books you love but rarely discuss!
