Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, and it’s now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their wonderful blog to get the details and the prompts for each week!
This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is Books with Numbers in the Title. This topic was a bit more difficult to write about than I thought it would be. I guess I’ve read fewer books with numbers in the title than I initially thought.
It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey – This was a fun book. Even though I did not love the male lead in this book, I enjoyed the setting so much that it made up for that. I like books that take place in smaller, tight-knit communities, and this book falls into that category. This book also had a decent amount of spice to it, which is always a bonus, especially for summer reading. If you’re interested, here’s my review of It Happened One Summer.
Four Aunties and a Wedding by Jesse Q. Sutanto – This was another very fun book. This book introduced me to radioactive eggplant coloured dresses and komodo dragon fascinators and it brought me so much joy. I love the aunties in this series and I hope there are more books because I need their shenanigans in my life. If you’re interested, here’s my review of Four Aunties and a Wedding.
Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid – It’s been a few years since I read this book, but I remember really enjoying it. I liked that this book was written as a series of interviews and I enjoyed the characters. I like how Taylor Jenkins Reid is able to write about fictional famous people in a way that makes me think they are read. I’m hoping to find time to watch the television adaptation of this soon.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – I’ve read this one twice and I will likely read it again. Evelyn Hugo is an amazing character and I loved reading about her career and all of the moves she had to make to be successful. I also loved Monique, the reporter interviewing Evelyn Hugo, and watching her grow throughout this book.
The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton – This was a confusing book, but I enjoyed it. It was full of twists and turns and it kept me guessing the entire time. The time loop aspect was a lot to handle, but it added a unique element to this story. I don’t remember much about the ending of this one, but I feel like this would be a good book to reread at some point so I can try to pick up on the clues throughout the story.
