Hey, everyone! Welcome back to another ABC Book Challenge post. I decided to do this to add more variety to the blog and also because it looked incredibly fun (and so far, it is!). Once again, thank you to Sofii @A Book. A Thought. for introducing this tag to me, and for her support. You should definitely check out her blog if you haven’t already!
Here’s the challenge: Every week (though I have not strictly been following this, haaaa), I’ll have a post sharing my most favorite titles as well as those on my current TBR list that start with the corresponding letter. (For weird letters like Q, X, and Z, I might have to bend the rules a little and just have those letters somewhere in the title, but we’ll see.)
This week is the letter K!
Favorite Titles That Start with “K”
Kinslayer by Jay Kristoff continues the Lotus War trilogy with a bang. I won’t get into the plot of this one since it’s a sequel, but Yukiko and Buruu each go through one hell of a journey, meeting new characters and having their eyes opened to new, terrifying questions and perspectives. I especially loved meeting Yoshi and Nana, and my back-and-forth with Kin was as fun as it was agonizing. The rebellion grows and grows, the stakes rise, and in true Kristoff fashion, agony was felt all the time.
The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson was a book that I actually hated when I first started reading it. The characters drove me nuts, and the romance seemed so immature; I couldn’t understand the praise for the book—until I got to a certain point within it and realized what the author had done. See, there’s two POVs here where the person speaking is never identified by name, and when it’s finally revealed who’s who, the magic happens! I love when an author takes a gamble, and it pays off, especially when it challenges me as a reader, so in the end, I grew to love this book and Lia’s journey. (Though, the second book, The Heart of Betrayal is still the best because of the Komizar, bye.)
Books on My TBR List That Start with “K”
Not a bad group of K’s here! I really, really want to get to some of these in a major way soon, especially since I already own three books on this list.
What are your favorite books that start with K? Do any of these interest you? Are there any you strongly recommend?
