Ten of the Best Books I’ve Read Recently

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme created by Jamie and the girls over Broke and the Bookish.

It’s always hard to come up with ten books for me, I don’t even read ten books this year yet! So I’m going to pick 10 favorites from my read shelf.

1. #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso

I thought this book was just for bloggers, but I was completely wrong! It’s for all the techy gals out there, those who want to use the internet for something more than scrolling a Facebook feed, and, well, wants to start a business online.

2. Red’s Untold Tale by Wendy Toliver

I already talked a lot about this book and you can read my review here.

3. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

I read this book last Summer and I enjoyed it so much that I couldn’t put it down. I read very few phycological thrillers in my whole life, but I liked this book so I might try again something in this genre sometimes soon.

4. The Wild Frontier by K.M. Rice

Completely out of my comfort zone, this book is settled in the early 1800s, I really liked it. I purchased it, because the author is a fellow Tolkien nerd and an amazing writer and it didn’t disappointed me at all!

5. The Fringe Hours by Jessica Turner

I really enjoyed this book! It’s about cutting out some time for yourself in a super busy schedule. I’m going to write a mini review very soon, stay tuned!

6. Radical Self-Love by Gala Darling

Again, this is a book I’m planning to write something about very soon, because I LOVED it. It’s a non fiction, in case you wondered 🙂

I wanted to read this book since forever, because it’s the cutest thing and I’ve been lucky enough to receive it for Christmas. These are the letters that JRR Tolkien wrote to his children pretending to be Santa Claus. Adorable!

8. 365 Journal Writing Ideas by Rossi Fox

I started the year journaling again, but I always struggle with filling my notebook with complaints. I wanted to stop it so I purchased this book on my Kindle and it’s perfect! I love having a new journaling prompt each day and a weekly action to take every Monday.

9. The Martian by Andy Weir

This book is great! I only wish I didn’t watch the movie first, because I already knew the story so I wasn’t super motivated to read it sometimes.

10. The Hobbit Annotated by JRR Tolkien, Douglas A. Anderson

This is basically Tolkien’s The Hobbit with margin notes by Anderson about trivia and tidbits concerning the creation of the story (like the riddle scene with Gollum that in the original version was very different).

Have you read something great during the last few months? I’m always happy to receive some recommendations! 🙂
