Top Ten Tuesday (66)

Today has been really hard, so I'm getting this in just under the wire.

This week's topic is

1. Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony & Rodrigo Corral

One of the coolest books that I've ever read.  Told in pictures, words, and even an app, Chopsticks told me two totally different stories the both times I read it and I loved the ride both times.

2. The Thousand Dollar Tan Line - Rob Thomas & Jennifer Graham

The first in a hopefully long line of Veronica Mars mysteries.  What makes this one so unique is how it came to be.  There would be no book series without the Veronica Mars movie and there would be no movie without the 91,585 Kickstarter Backers (And yes I am one of them.  I would give them all my money if they kept promising me movies and yes I know that's a problem).  Fan funding allowed one of my favorite heroines to live on in a multitude of ways and I couldn't be more thrilled.

3. I Hunt Killers - Barry Lyga

The story of a twisted serial killer told from his teenaged son's point of view.  So messed up.  So different.  So awesome.

4. Team Human - Justine Larbalestier & Sarah Rees Brennan

The tagline says it all.  A vampire story where the main character sees vampires as the horrific creatures they are instead of as a love interest.  In the sea of vampire stories that exist in this post-Twilight world, Team Human was a breath of fresh air.

5. September Girls - Bennett Madison

September Girls utilizes some of the most unique mythology I've ever encountered in all my years of reading.  The Girls come to this world formless and make themselves based on what is deemed desirable in society, even if they can't stand it.  It was such an interesting read (one of my favorites of last year), I definitely recommend checking it out if you haven't already.

  1. There are actually lots of particulars like that to take into consideration. That may be a nice point to convey up. I provide the ideas above as common inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you convey up where an important thing will probably be working in trustworthy good faith.....Cccam Server
