I am linking up today at The Broke and the Bookish's link up "Top Ten Tuesday". They have a different topic every week and it's a lot of fun to meet some new bloggers and find a bunch of new books to add to my list! This week's topic is: Books That I Couldn't Put Down
I tried to include a nice mix of books. So here they are in no particular order:
(all links take you to Goodreads synopsis)
My favorite Gillian Flynn books so far (I've read Gone Girl and Sharp Objects too). I thought this one was the most suspenseful out of all of her books. It keeps you guessing the whole time.
This one has an unreliable narrarator (which I'm usually not a fan of) but I couldn't put this one down at all. I needed to know what was going to happen. And HOLY PLOT TWIST, BATMAN! I guessed part of it but did not see the other stuff coming.
Okay, this one was super creepy to me! Stories involving children are always creepier in my opinion. This one had the hairs on my arms standing up more than once. I didn't see that ending coming either.
I had no idea that this one was a thriller with paranormal elements until I was reading it. I thought that I wasn't going to like it for that reason but I was wrong. This one delivers an edge of your seat feeling that keeps you gripped until the end.
There is a very flawed and damaged main character, named Cat, who is the "hero". This one was a lot grittier than I expected it to be. It brings action, some scary moments, and even some romance.
I was so excited when I found out RR was writing about characters that she introduced from Cath's fanfiction in Fangirl. It was even better than I expected it to be and I didn't want it to ever end.
This one may be a bit unrealistic at times but the characters were so much fun that I couldn't put this one down. While a good part of this was light and fluffy there were also some tough topics, like the main character's sister having cancer.
I feel like Cinder is always on my list posts lately. It showed up on my "books I loved more than I thought I would" list a couple weeks ago. I really didn't expect to love this one as much as I did but I got so into the story that I flew through this one, and instantly picked up the second book.
I know, I know. I JUST reviewed this one last week, but I'm still in love with it. I read this whole thing without stopping once, and I already want to reread it again. lol! I love my geeky/nerdy romances, but add in the fact that one of the MCs has issues with anxiety (which I also suffer with) and I am hooked.
Have you read any of these? What books weren't you able to put down?
