This month’s Top 5 Tuesday is dedicated to the alphabet. You can interpret that how you like, according to our host The Bionic Bookworm. This week we are focusing on the letters A-E. I thought I’d share a book that I already own but haven’t read yet by an author for each letter.
So here are the 5 books I own that I’m most excited to read by author’s with a last name starting with A, B, C, D, and E.
I loved The Upside of Unrequited and I’ve been meaning to read Albertalli’s other books. I have this one on Kindle. Leah on the Offbeat is about a drummer with a usually solid friend group that is going through tough times.
I’ve been meaning to read this book for ages but haven’t gotten around to it. This is the author of the Selection series. The Siren is about a siren who falls in love with a human. It sounds sort of Little Mermaid inspired and you know I love a good retelling.
This is another book that has been on my radar for years. Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George is about a magical castle that can rebuild itself. On Tuesdays it adds a new room, turret, or occasionally a new wing. When the king and queen are ambushed, it’s up to Celie to defend the castle.
Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw came in one of my Owl Crates and it’s a gorgeous book. Here’s the description from Amazon:
“Be careful of the dark, dark wood…
Especially the woods surrounding the town of Fir Haven. Some say these woods are magical. Haunted, even.
Rumored to be a witch, only Nora Walker knows the truth. She and the Walker women before her have always shared a special connection with the woods. And it’s this special connection that leads Nora to Oliver Huntsman—the same boy who disappeared from the Camp for Wayward Boys weeks ago—and in the middle of the worst snowstorm in years. He should be dead, but here he is alive, and left in the woods with no memory of the time he’d been missing.”
Those are my 5! What would be on your list?
