Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
How it works: Each Tuesday will be assigned a topic and then you post your top ten list that fits it. Feel free to add your own spin on the topic to make it work for you! For me, I’m not sure the type of spin I want to put on it, so for now I’ll post fairly straight-forward responses.
I put this month’s topics at the bottom of the post, but you can find the whole list on the host blog. If you don’t have a blog, you’re welcome to participate using other social media or even by putting your list in the comments.
This Week’s Topic: My Ten Most Recent Reads (maybe share a one-sentence review to go with?)
**You can select the cover of each novel to access their entry on Goodreads.**
I have mixed feelings on this story as I liked some elements and disliked many others.
A nice and simple Regency romance with interesting characters and a nice rags to riches story.
Although this one was a disappointment to me, I can see why others could love it. Unfortunately, it’s just one I will not read again.
An excellent follow-up novel with an faster pace now that all the main pieces have been identified in the first.
A light-hearted start to a series featuring a more mature main character, who also happens to be a witch.
An extremely cute and humorous novel that makes me want to look into this profession (to hire or to be one as I’m now very curious).
A promising start to what seems to be a fun series with a reluctant heir who believes that her seemingly deceased father is still alive.
An excellent standalone novel by an author I’ve come to love. It features morally grey/black characters that are unapologetic for who they are.
A fantastic sequel that continued the fun of dragons in a war of politics. This one made me very excited for the next one in the series.
This one was an interesting take on the outcast in the Regency era romance genre with the added magic of telekinetic powers.

Happy first Tuesday post of May! This week’s topic was very simple, especially since I posted a review this morning after finishing it yesterday. There are three series on this list that I need to work on finishing plus six standalones. Five of them were ARC reads and the other five were audiobooks. They were all great in their own ways and I am not sure which one I would consider a favorite, although I am thinking it might be The Secret Bridesmaid. It was just a story that made me smile and I would easily re-read it. Happy Tuesday!
