Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s theme is:
April 14: Books I Enjoyed but Rarely Talk About
There are probably more books on this list than there should be because there are definitely a few books I love and forget to mention. So let’s get into them.
All three of these contemporaries were so sweet and heart-warming and I loved them. But they’ve all been out for a little while, so I feel like I don’t talk about them as much any more?? I need to rectify that.
Casual reminder that these four fantasies were brilliantly plotted with some epic world-building and I enjoyed them all SO MUCH.
*kicks your door down* I AM HERE TO REMIND YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE THESE BOOKS. They’re great and you should read them if you haven’t already please thank you, OK.
When Dimple Met Rishi is so funny and romantic, The Name of the Wind has a fantastic magic system (like, one of the best), and The Alchemist is such a spiritual, existiential book that it’ll make you feel keenly connected with the world.
Which books did you enjoy but you don’t talk about much? Have you read any of these or are they on your TBR?

The candle and the flame sounds like such an interesting premise B x
Strange the Dreamer has been on my TBR for ages, especially since I found a copy in a box of free books!
Ooh that’s great! We love a free book 😀
Yesssssss Forest of a Thousand Lanterns! I always talk about this when I talk about dark fantasy
Such an underrated book! I still haven’t read the sequel though :O
I have either 🙈 however I have read the third
Wait, there’s a third book???
It’s more like a 2.5. It’s in the same world but diff characters
Oooh interesting! I had no idea there was another book!
Strange the Dreamer is one of the most whimsical books I’ve ever read! I love that duology so much. And The Name of the Wind has such smooth writing. I flew through it!
Yes, Strange is just brilliant 😀 It’s so inventive and imaginative. The Name of the Wind is wonderful too, but I fear Rothfuss will never finish the series 😦
I also don’t talk about To Kill a Kingdom enough 😂
It’s so good isn’t it?! I enjoyed it loads more than I thought I would!
It’s actually one of my favorite 😂😂
All of these I’ve heard amazing things about.. can’t wait to read the ones I haven’t yet gotten to, but I loved To kill a kingdom myself.
To Kill a Kingdom is so good! I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did 😀
I have yet to read any of these. I was reading The Name of the Wind for a bit but then I lost it (have no fear! I found it a few weeks later, hehe). I was also in a huge reading slump when I was trying to read it, too. I’m so glad you love these books!
Hahaha I love that you lost it but then found it again! I hope you get to pick it up at some point because it’s amazing!
I finally got around to reading The Name of the Wind over winter break and WOWOW it was amazing!!!
Oh my goodness, I’m SO glad you enjoyed it! It’s just masterfully written, isn’t it?
To Kill a Kingdom is a book I STILL need to read. I also deeply love the Strange the Dreamer duology. It’s just so… Laini Taylor. I love it.
Laini is an amazing writer! I’m constantly blown away by her world building!
