It’s been a while since I’ve done a TTT (yes, I know it’s Wednesday, whatever). I actually struggled to find 10 books with numbers in the title that I would genuinely recommend. But I did manage it. So here we go.
This is probably not much of a recommendation by now cause everyone knows about it. But in case you’ve lived under a rock, this is a wonderful first book to a duology that ripped my heart to tiny little pieces.
Another one that probably surprises no one, especially if you’ve been around for a while. This is the first book in what is one of my favourite fantasy series of all time and you should read it. cause it’s amazing. You can check out my review for more info, but basically this is about the end of the world and earthquake magic.
One Word Kill by Mark Lawrence
This is Mark Lawrence’s newest series. I’ve only read the first book (this one) so far, but this is a really fun, fast paced time travel series. It’s kind of like Stranger Things meets Doctor Who. It’s a lot of fun. The second book has already been published and the third is coming up I think in November.
This book is hilarious. Jonas Jonasson is probably my favourite comedy author and I will continue to love and recommend all his books. You don’t need to know more than the title tells you really.
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
This is a book I talk about less often, but I really enjoyed it. Again, the title tells you more or less all you need to know about the book. It’s about a guy named Harry August who lives over and over again.
Just One Damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor
Another brilliant humour series. It’s about time travel (but we don’t call it that). It’s got adventure, it’s got mystery, it’s got romance and a whole lot of catastrophe. You can’t really ask for more unless you want to ask for dinosaurs and guess what? It’s got those too.
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
The next few books are all going to be classics, cause classics can be great too. This is probably my favourite Charles Dickens novel that I’ve read so far. It takes place during the French Revolution in both London and Paris (hence the two cities).
1984 by George Orwell
Probably everyone has heard of this book. For good reason. It’s a good book. Kind of scary and haunting. But good.
The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien
Of course I had to mention this. I wouldn’t be the huge LOTR nerd that I am otherwise. I probably don’t need to explain this book to you.
20000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
This is probably the one I’ve read the longest ago. But I really enjoyed it when I did. In fact, I enjoyed all the Jules Vernes I’ve ever read. So even though it’s been a long time, I would still recommend this book.
