Top 5 Tuesday: KLMNO

It has been a little while since I participate in Top 5 Tuesday, and I honestly wasn’t sure I was going to be able to do this topic. Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the lovely Shanah at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit here for the upcoming topics!

ALSO friends, I think my comments are being labelled as spam, so check your spam folders please!

Onto the post for today! This month, the topics are the alphabet! Essentially, I’m going to be giving you one book for each letter of the alphabet during this month. Today, the letters are KLMNO. I got to talk about a lot of books that I really enjoy but don’t often talk about, so this one was a lot of fun!

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness: if you haven’t read this trilogy yet, I highly recommend you do. It has some of the best character development I’ve read in recent years, and it’s just so good. Also, a movie is being made soon, so !!!

The Lost Girls by Heather Young: this is a really great, atmospheric thriller. It’s more slow-paced and intense than action-packed and intense, if that makes sense. Kind of quiet and atmospheric, and it takes its time getting to the end. But I really loved it.

My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares: no one has read this book, honestly. But it’s so good. If you like star-crossed lovers, time travel, and reincarnation, then you’d love this one.

Nothing by Janne Teller: this book is a hit-or-miss with people, but I loved it. It’s a little disturbing, so keep that in mind, but it’s really amazing. I highly recommend it.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman: this book isn’t my favourite Gaiman, but I still really enjoyed it. It’s a very Gaiman book, so know that going in. It’s super interesting and atmospheric.

So there are some more alphabet recommendations! Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? Are any of them on your TBR? Let me know!

Thanks for reading! xx

  1. LOL, describing The Ocean at the End of the Lane as “very Gaiman” is perfect. I enjoyed it, but couldn’t recommend it for someone who doesn’t like his other work. He’s definitely got a style.

      1. Actually, I’ve been trying to think of a Gaiman book I could recommend to someone who doesn’t usually like his work, and I can’t think of many. Maybe Norse Mythology, but that’s about it. He has a very distinct style and rarely varies from it.

  2. Great post! and you’re right, I checked my spam folder and I found two of your lovely comments in there! but perhaps I know why, because amongst your comments, there was another comment where it said: “TEN BOOKS” on my weekly reading post, I’m not sure whether that was accidental or whether you have some sort of virus or someone hacking your account? that may be why you were labelled for spam?

  3. Lovely post! The only one I’ve read here is the Knife of Never Letting Go, but I agree that the character development is great in it! I can’t wait for the movie to release! I think it’ll be really interesting to see how the concept of the Noise is adapted in a movie format.
