Top 5 Wednesday: Books You've Read Because of Booktube/Blogging/etc.

I have to admit. I find a lot of inspiration on Booktube. So this is an easy topic for me. Now it’s only a matter of choosing five :).
In case you don’t know Top 5 Wednesday, you can find all the info here.
1. Eliza and her monsters – Francesca Zappia
Eliza and her monsters Francesca Zappia
I don’t read a lot of contemporary books so when I feel the need to pick one up, I go looking for recommendations from people I trust.
That’s how I read Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson and Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I ended up loving both but today I chose to mention Eliza and her monsters because that book really touched me on a personal level.
You can read my full thoughts here.
2. Everything in the Grisha-verse – Leigh Bardugo

Samantha from Thoughts on Tomes has the best recommendations. She got me to read Uprooted by Naomi Novik and of course everything Grisha-related. I loved the world-building in these books and I’m so glad I picked them up.
3. Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor

Another big one this year is Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. This book was everywhere on Booktube and it sounded so compelling that I couldn’t help but pick it up. It was a wonderful read and I wish I could forget all about it just so I could read it again for the first time.
I’m now making my way through the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy and I’m stuck on book three. I can’t get myself to start reading it. I definitely prefer Strange the Dreamer but it still has the same magical writing. I’m so conflicted…
4. Rebecca – Daphne du Maurier
book review rebecca daphne du maurier
The best example of ‘you win some, you lose some’. This book is one of those classics that keeps popping up every now and then. I HATED IT!!! Sorry to everyone who loves this book but I just don’t understand why…
I 100% picked this book up because of Booktube. By the end I wanted to throw it at a wall… Full rant here.
5. We should all be feminists – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

One I would never have found without the online community. I live in Belgium. This means that I miss a lot of what happens overseas. Thanks to Booktube, Twitter, blogs,.. I try to keep up and I’m so glad that I caught on to this one (and the whole feminist writing category for that matter). For a book that only takes about thirty minutes to read, it really packs a punch.
So, thank you to everyone who shares their thoughts on books online. I really helps!!
