Recommendations from Twitter: Part Two

Welcome back to the second part of this series! If you missed part one make sure to check it out, the books were amazing and I keep looking forward to gettinglostinink_ more book recommendations and as always leave more below and if there’s enough I might do a post about just those!

Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed

This was recommended to me by Lia on a different post because I wanted another book like What If It’s Us and wanted another cute romance. This reminds me so much of Red White and Royal Blue as well so if you enjoy that you’d probably enjoy this too. Literally my only complaint was that I wanted it gayer but I think if it was I’d be saying it’s too similar to Red White and Royal Blue.

During the entire read it felt so real. The bills, the canvasing. It’s all happening in real life. I read the author’s note at the end, which is something I don’t do much and it’s because they were in the same shoes as Jamie and Maya (minus the romance) and this was inspired by that time.

Normally I don’t pay much attention to side characters, relationships and problems but they all funneled back into the main storyline, increasing the problems and it was so well done. I instantly added Aisha Saeed’s newest to my TBR to read more of her.

Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

Recommended by Reg because I wasn’t impressed by The Death Of Mrs. Westaway and I was iffy about reading anything else by her. But I’m kind of glad I did. I still have Lying Game which I own to get to and then I’ll make my decision on if I like her or not because I love her writing style but there are things in each I didn’t love.

I feel like I definitely annoyed Reg and Luna by mentioning my problem with the book every time I picked it up and that is drumroll the main character, Rowan, is annoying to the extreme. There were so many times throughout the novel that I was screaming at her, like when she leaves the baby in the house alone and said it was okay because she had the baby monitor. Um…. no.

I loved the twist at the end and how even some little things she did in the beginning came back to haunt her later.

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

I’m not going to lie, I was skeptical about this one. It was recommended to me by Luna, but don’t worry, that wasn’t the reason. I used to love mythology but I read a couple books by Neil Gaiman before and just didn’t vibe with it so even though I loved the topic, I wasn’t sure if I was going to love the writing style.

I was wrong. I loved it, I flew through this book so fast and found the myths so interesting. I didn’t know anything about Norse mythology going in and I’m so glad I got to read this because I don’t think I would have picked it up without her recommendation because of my previous experience with his writing.

Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? Any recommendations from Twitter you’ve gotten?

Let's talk!
