T10T Explination

This week, on Top 10 Tuesday, it’s time to name books with our favourite colour on the cover or in the title!

My favourite colour is grey…Big surprise right?

Big Little Lies.jpgBig Little Lies│Liane Moriarty│★★★★★

I really love this cover! I am definitely one for minimalist designs. They give you a taste of what is inside, but little else.

I also happened to love this book as well! I thought it was character driven, and such a good suspense novel.

I am not a fan of this cover. I don’t really know exactly what it is that bothers me, it just feels off.

I didn’t enjoy reading it either. It didn’t grab my attention and I really struggled to wrap my head around the world.

I absolutely LOVE this edition of the series, each book is a different colour and gosh, they’re so beautiful.

The Mortal Instruments series are the books that got me back into reading a couple of years ago.

I had started watching the Shadowhunters Netflix series with my housemate and I really enjoyed it so she lent me her books to read. I devoured the series.

Although now with some distance and time between us, I can see the series’ many faults, it will still have a special place in my heart because it returned me to my love of reading and opened the door to Goodreads and the book community for me so I will be forever thankful for that.

Another really simplistic design that I love. I think once you read the book, you gain a better understanding and appreciation for this cover. It fits the book well and I highly recommend people pick it up!

If you like cults, crazy future technology and corrupt leaders than I think you’ll enjoy this!

It has incredible Orphan Black vibes also, so if you love that show, I think you’ll love this.

all the rage.jpgAll the Rage│Courtney Summers│★★★★★

This cover captures the books feel very well I think.

This book is gut-wrenching and will make any woman reading it feel the anger that burns every time we hear a rape joke, or a man invades our personal space or tells us to smile.

It fucked with my emotions hard and it’s just such a good book.

This graphic novel is so cute and pure and I love it so much.
It’s the perfect book to give to an introvert, or for an introvert to give to a loved one so that they can understand them better.

It’s beautifully illustrated and written and really portrays the struggle of being an introvert in a western society.

middlesex.jpgMiddlesex│Jeffrey Eugenides│★★☆☆☆

I’m really on the fence with this book. It was well written, I cared deeply about Cal throughout the whole book.

However, from memory, the author didn’t ever speak with an intersex person when writing this novel and I feel like that just…is not okay.

I get that it was written in a different time but, looking at it through a current lens, that just isn’t okay. I don’t know, I’d love to see an #ownvoices review so if anyone knows of one, please let me know!

This cover really captures the mystery in this book well.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one, it had major The Raven Cycle vibes so I recommend it to people who loved that series!

The characters were complex and my heart broke as I learned more about each of them.

It was mystical and beautiful and y’all should pick it up.

love the UK paperbacks of the Monsters of Verity series. They’re absolutely beautiful and again had a really simplistic design. They give nothing away but are intriguing enough to grab your attention.

This is one of my favourite series of all time and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves reading about characters who live in the grey parts of life.

Like anti-heroes and monsters and soft boys and sharp girls? Do yourself a favour and pick this series up!
