It’s another Tuesday, which means that it’s time for Top 5 Tuesday.
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah – The Bionic Bookworm. If you want to take part, head over to her blog to find out how!
This week the topic is ‘Top 5 Books You’ve Read As An ARC’. At first, I thought this was going to be really hard to narrow down, but when I looked through my past reviews I realised that some ARCs were SO better than others! So, here goes….
The Malinovsky Papers – Hannah Jones
I’m still not over this book! It was AMAZING! If you like history, I’d definitely recommend it. It’s set out in the form of a dossier of historical documents and it’s so fascinating.
The Island – M A Bennett
I’ve just finished reading this and it was SO good. I thought it would just be a ‘survival of the fittest’ scenario between a group of teenagers who find themselves stranded on an island but it’s so much more than that. I’ll be posting my review later on this week.
No Sad Songs – Frank Morelli
I think this book made me feel every emotion going. It tells the story of high school student Gabe and his grandfather who has Alzheimer’s. It’s one of the most realistic portrayals of Alzheimer’s I’ve ever come across so needless to say its very emotional.
The Fact Of A Body – Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich
This book is part true crime, part memoir and it works so well! Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich had always been strongly opposed to the death penalty. But while she is working as an intern, she watches a court recording of Ricky Langley and as soon as she sees him, she knows without a doubt that she wants him to die. It’s such an interesting book. I don’t want to give too much away but if you’re into crime books I’d strongly recommend it.
The Possible World – Liese O’Halloran Schwarz
This book is such a feel good read. It focuses of three main characters: Ben, a young boy who is the sole survivor of a mass murder. Lucy, the doctor who treats Ben when he ends up in ER and Clare, an old lady living in a retirement home. On the fact of it, there doesn’t seem to be a link between them but something brings them together.
