Dear Rebellious Readers,
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog post hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and this week’s topic is one I came up with myself because the other topic I didn’t have anything to write about. So my topic is Owlcrate and Shelflovecrate books I want to read by the end of the year.
I am super behind on my Owlcrate and Shelflovecrate subscription box books. So I have made a goal to read at least 10 of them before years end. Here are the 10 I am most excited about and plan to read and review before the end of the year.
1. The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg
Shelflovecrate book of the month for June 2019
Why: Disney like Theme Park with Robots and a Murder Mystery?! I am so in. Plus it is told in a unique way with courtroom testimony, interviews, and Ana(the robot accused of murder)’s memories. I love books told in unique ways.
2. We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal
Owlcrate and Shelflovecrate Book of the Month May 2019
Why: Arabian mythology fantasy novel. With the tag line “People lived because she killed. People died because he lived.” This book sounds right up my ally. I love any time of mythology and have never read a book with Arabian mythology.
3. Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
Owlcrate and Shelflovecrate Book of the Month April 2019
Why: A girl who can talk to gods, a prince in danger, and a boy with a secret. Forbidden Romance. Dark and Light. This book sounds like it was written for me.
4. The Bird and the Blade by Megan Bannen
Shelflovecrate Book of the Month July 2018
Why: Mongolian Empire with a Tournament/Trial/Game. Yes, I am so excited. I have a weird interest in the Mongal people. My Grandfather was kinda obsessed with Genghis Khan. So anytime I hear about anything to do with them I think of my grandfather.
5. Romanov by Nadine Brandes
Shelflovecrate 2nd Book of the Month May 2019
Why: One of my favorite movies as a kid was Anatastia and since then I have always loved anything to do with Anastasia. Now excuse me while I go and sing Once Upon A December.
6. Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau-Preto
Owlcrate Book of the Month February 2019
Why: Phoniex riders and siblings relationships where they are fighting to the death. I can’t believe I haven’t read this book already.
7. The Lost Girl by Anne Ursu
Owlcrate Jr Book of the Month February 2019
Why: I really loved the last middle-grade book I read. I mean I loved it. It was a past Owlcrate Jr. book called The Polar Bear Explorers Club. So when I won this book from Owlcrate Jr. I was so excited but then got distracted by other books. I have heard great things about this book and am pushing it up on my TBR.
8. House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig
Owlcrate Book of the Month August 2019
Why: I love any kind of retelling but fairy tale ones are my favorites. I have never read one placed on the story of the twelve dancing princesses and I am really excited too because this book looks so dark and you all know I love dark books.
9. Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
Owlcrate Book of the Month June 2019
Why: I loved An Enchantment of Ravens and am so excited to read Rogerson’s second book. Especially because it is about guardians and they guard a library. Yes, you read that right a library. This book is going to be amazing. I just know it.
10. Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh
Shelflovecrate Book of the Month January 2018
Why: Necromancers? LGBTQ+ rep? Yes, please. The second book in the doulogy already came out and I can’t wait to dig in.
Do you have any backed up subscription box books? or are you good at reading them the month you get them?
Yours in Rebellion
