Welcome to the latest installment of Super 6 Sunday!
Super 6 Books I’m Glad I Took A Chance On!
You know how it goes… you see a book that sounds interesting but you’re not sure. Or you fall in love with the cover but you’ve never read anything by the author…should you take a chance?
I’m not a big reader of contemporary romance, but when this book was available for review I chose it on a lark. I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!! Jennifer Smith’s fun, witty writing style totally had me hooked and I’m so happy I chose to read it!
I love Middle Grade, but I’ve never read a lot of Lovecraftian fiction. This series, however, was AMAZING! I loved the characters and the plot line and how accessible this made speculative fiction to young kids. Definitely glad I tried this one out!
When I ready Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama, I was worried it would come off to twee or too emulative of other mermaid stories. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This book, filled with strong characters, an amazing, twisting plot and a lush writing style could not have been more enjoyable. LOVED THIS!!
Again,m another lark, this time from my local library. THANK GOODNESS I had the chance to read these books! They’re visceral and raw and flat out amazing! SO, SO, SOOOOO GOOD!
I’ll admit with this one, I fell in love with the cover of the second book and then had to get excited about the first book, who’s cover was not in the same style. But this story, so fresh and unique, and the historical/paranormal setting drew me in. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed these 3 books and can’t wait for the next two!
So those are MY top 6 books that I’m so glad I took a chance on. What about you?
What books are you glad you took a shot on? Can you narrow it down to only 6???
