I’ve thought long and hard about how to write this one up; I’ve seen you enjoy the twists I place on the TTT lists and since I’ve had tremendous fun coming up with these I thought: Let’s keep at it!
Truthfully, I’m someone who does the recommending rather than being someone who gets recs 😂 Mainly however, I find awesome recs either from bookish articles or book bloggers! So I’ve compiled the recent recs I liked along with the original source.
You’ve got another dual bargain with this one! Book recs AND links to amazing blogs 😍
I’ll be honest I haven’t read any of them 🙈 so that’s another rule broken 😬😂
Top 10 Recommended Books
Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman
Apparently this is considered on the forefront when it comes to dystopian YA, especially in the Millennial era. It looks so intriguing and according to Waterstones; this is one of the best YA books.
Check out their best YA recs!
The Cult of We: Wework, Adam Neumann, and the Great Startup Delusion by Eliot Brown and Maureen Farrell
Corporate scandals have always been a fascination to me, there is a morbid enjoyment in watching something fall apart; like crumbling sandcastles.
This book was part of The Bibliofile’s top anticipated non fic books of 2021; definitely recommend checking it out!
Strange Weather in Tokyo by Hiromi Kawakami
I’ve always loved anything related to culture and folklore of countries and societies foreign to me. I think there is something profound and special when looking at the world with someone else’s cultural perspective. So when this snagged my attention from Bookish Luna’s Middle Mark Post, I knew I had to add it to my TBR right away!
Her other recs include historical fiction, a bit of horror, and some Stephen King!
A Dead Djinn in Cairo by P Djeli Clark
When it comes to book recs, Noura @theperksofnoura never fails to impress me with a rec or two; her book tastes fit right up my alley! A Dead Djinn in Cairo was part of her October TBR, and it seemed like the perfect mix of mystery and sci fi!
Carols and Chaos by Cindy Anstey
I love myself some classic romance but it’s more fun when you mix in a counterfeiting scheme! Added this book after looking at Krysta’s Top 10 YA Books with Clean Romance. These are perfect books if you’re looking for something sweet rather than steamy.
Ghosts by Dolly Alderton
It’s always great to see contemporary books shed a light on being thirty, I tend to find most books focus on the gravitating and exciting times of being a twenty something year old (lol yeah right). It’s even more amazing when it speaks about women and the more pressure they face especially with stereotypes of family, children, “settling down”, etc.
This book has been part of White Rose Stories Most Anticipated October 2020 releases! So many books and a great selection!
The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Staveley
This high epic fantasy was recommended by V.E. Schwab herself, and it was an answer to the question “which book/s would you recommend to lure someone who hasn’t read fantasy in a while back into the genre?”.
This was part of a Goodreads interview blog post that features other popular fantasy authors like Naomi Novik and Susanna Clark. They provide countless recs and it was so enlightening looking into each author’s different styles and readings!
Fiends on the Other Side by Vera Strange
Princess and the Frog is one of my fav Disney movies! So when I spotted this as part of Sammie @ The Bookwyrm Den’s September Book Haul it seemed like the perfect spooky read for Fall. I mean the cover speaks for itself 😍
Her recent book haul is filled with spooky and creepy reads, so if you’re into that I would definitely recommend checking her post out!
Small Spaces by Katherine Arden
For all newbie spooky readers, The Artsy Reader has made a curated list of scary rated book recs for spooky season, if you wanna dive into the genre but don’t want something “too scary” check out her stellar post!
Small spaces include a school trip gone wrong and the ghost that haunts the local farm.
