Top Ten Books I Enjoyed But Rarely Talk About | Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10!

Jun 23, 2020

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This Tuesday is a special one as it marks the 10th anniversary of Top Ten Tuesday! There are two options to pick to do this week: 1.) Pick a past TTT topic you've done and update/redo it, or 2.) pick a past TTT topic you wish you'd done but didn't get a chance to do.

The topic I chose this week is...

♥ Have you read any of the books mentioned above?
If you've participated, what TTT topic did you do? ♥


  1. I've heard so much about If We Were Villains, definitely need to read it at some point.
    My TTT:

    1. If We Were Villains is really enjoyable. It has a mix of The Secret History and The Foxhole Court dark academia vibes, so if that's your thing you'll definitely like If We Were Villains. :) I hope you get to read it someday soon!

  2. Daughters of Nri does sound like a good read!

    My TTT.

    1. Daughters of Nri is pretty good (at least in my opinion). I enjoyed it once I got used to the writing style and the action started. I hope you get to read it and enjoy as well. :)

      Thanks for taking the time to comment and sharing your post - I'll check it out!

  3. I'm going to have to check out The Melody of You and Me. I haven't heard of that one before, but it sounds like one I might enjoy.

    1. I recommend The Melody of You and Me. It's wonderfully sapphic. :)

      It's written by a Filipino author so it's not heavily marketed outside of Philippines, which might explain why it is pretty much a hidden gem. The companion book is great as well. I hope you get to read it and that you enjoy it!

  4. I haven't heard of most of these, so I guess they're not talked about much! I am interested in QUEENIE. It sounds intriguing.

    Happy TTT!

    1. Queenie is so good! The representation and storytelling is just amazing. It's one of my favorites. I hope you get to read it someday soon. :) Happy reading!

  5. Yes, If We Were Villains was fantastic. I need more from M.L. Rio! :)

    Check out my TTT

    1. It really is! And agreed. :)

      Thanks for coming by and sharing your post - I'll check it out!
