Happy Saturday, bibliophiles, and a happy Fourth of July to my fellow Americans! If I’m being completely honest, most of the country is a disaster, but I believe that dissent and the wish to change one’s country for the better is true patriotism. I celebrate the good parts of the country, and IF YOU’RE OF VOTING AGE, PLEASE VOTE. WE NEED TO GET THE RACIST, MISOGYNIST, HOMOPHOBIC SOGGY CHEETO OUT OF OFFICE AT ALL COSTS.
Anyway, it’s time for another Top 5 Saturday! This was originally started by Devouring Books, and it sounded like such a fun post to take part in. Today’s topic is books that have morally gray characters. This one was a bit harder than the rest–I’m trawling my brain for all the antihero-ish books I can think of…
UPCOMING SCHEDULE FOR JULY:
7/4/20 — Coming of Age
7/11/20 — Hyped Books
7/18/20 — Books You Own
7/25/20 — #OwnVoices Books
- Share your top 5 books of the current topic– these can be books that you want to read, have read and loved, have read and hated, you can do it any way you want.
- Tag the original post (This one!)
- Tag 5 people
Let’s begin, shall we?
TOP 5 SATURDAY (7/4/20)–COMING OF AGE BOOKS
A beautiful and underrated novel that follows a new high schooler as she grapples with her sexuality and the suicide of a classmate.
I recently got this one as an eARC (it’s coming out in late September of this year), and it’s a wonderfully poignant novel of navigating grief, mental illness, friendships, and sexual and gender identity.
A relatable exploration of family, friendships, and relationships–plus, the art style is super cute!
A cleverly-written and poignant exploration of family ties.
A heart-wrenching tale of grief and finding your voice.
I TAG ANYONE WHO WANTS TO PARTICIPATE!
Today’s song (bitter Fourth of July edition!)
That’s it for this week’s Top 5 Saturday! Have a wonderful rest of your day, and take care of yourselves!
