For the “High Five” Challenge as part of the Book Blogger Love-a-Thon hosted by Alexa Loves Books we’re meant to share our current favorites (what is currently making us happy) for each of the five categories below.
Book – This is a toss up between My Heart & Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga (my review) and A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab (my review). I love both of these books for completely different reasons, but I would HIGHLY recommend both of them. I already know they’ll be two of my favorite reads of the year.
Genre – This is so hard as I don’t really read only one genre at any given time. I’m too much of a mood reader for that. I just finished reading a contemporary (The Duff), am working through a fantasy (The Assassin’s Blade), and will start a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic (??), crazy something (It’s the End of the World as We Know It). So really, I love all the genres.
Author – Current favorite? Oh, man. Ummm. I’m going to have to go with Matt Haig. He’s always one of my favorites, but I just read another of his books (To Be a Cat), so he’s currently relevant with me. Always relevant. Love his books.
Blogger – Seriously? I have to pick just ONE? No, I can’t. Here’s four. That’s not too bad, right? Rachel @ Confessions of a Book Geek, Brandie at Brandie is a Book Junkie, April at Bookishly Speaking, and Amy at Read What I Like. I’ve got awesome things going with all of them (buddy reads, book clubs, and a really fun upcoming challenge)! But honestly, you are all my favorite. Anyone who’s ever commented on my blog or tweeted me or emailed me. I love every single one of you and I appreciate you so much. ❤
Bookish Merchandise / Book-related site – Is it lazy to say Goodreads? I’m on there every single day and that is where I find most of the books I add to my TBR (the rest of the books are found through all of you on your blogs!). Add me on Goodreads! ❤
What are your “high fives”?
