Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
God’s Own Country by Ross Raisin
A dark novel with a psychologically disturbed protagonist. What’s not to love?
by Sarah Moss Ghost Wall
When academic types go ‘Lord of the Flies’…
by Seanan McGuire Across the Green Grass Fields
This is one of my favorite series, and every time I finish the latest book I can’t wait for the next one to come out.
Music for Tigers by Michelle Kadarusman
A cute ecological story with a Neurodiverse supporting character.
by Karen Hesse The Music of Dolphins
A short but powerful read with a tragic ending.
by Kacen Callender King and the Dragonflies
My favorite book by Kacen Callender. A subtle and emotionally wrenching exploration of identity, grief, and prejudice.
by Beth Kephart Wild Blues
This book was a little on the weird side but it had great character development and was a fast-paced read.
by Carys Davies West
Westerns aren’t usually my genre but I enjoyed this short, potent novel about a man’s foolhardy quest and the daughter he leaves behind.
by John Corey Whaley Where Things Come Back
Even though this book wasn’t nearly as good as I still enjoyed it. I think John Corey Whaley is a great writer and people don’t talk about him nearly enough. Highly Illogical Behavior
by James E. McTeer II Minnow
I picked this up at the library impulsively- it’s a good story loaded with atmosphere and I’m looking forward to seeing what this author writes next.
