Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new Top Ten list will be posted. Everyone is welcome to join. Link back to The Broke and the Bookish so everyone can check out other bloggers' lists. It's a fun way to get to know fellow bloggers.
This week is Top Ten That Feature Characters That Are X. So in other words kind of a freebie. I'm going with characters who have lost something- or have secrets- I guess this includes characters who are unreliable narrators. So here's my list.
This one is a woman who sees something she shouldn't after not taking her meds for a manic/ bipolar type of illness.
Memory loss. Everyone is telling her who she was, but who is she now?
Another memory loss tale, and one of the better twist endings I've read.
Narcissistic personality disorder plays a role here, and both the main characters- victim and forensic psychologist- are missing answers from previous events.
Lots of secrets.
MC wakes up in a ditch, has lost several years of memories, but can fight. Like really fight.
Facing fears, and secrets.
A town full of secrets and a murder.
How well do you really know someone?
What a great line up of books. Awesome list!ReplyDelete
Ooh I love unreliable narrators. I haven't read any of these but a book I really enjoyed that would fit this category is Code Name Verity.ReplyDelete
I do too, I love wondering what's going on. :)Delete
I love Radio Silence. i hope to read One of Us is Lying soon too.ReplyDelete
Radio silence was really good. And I hope you get to One Of Us Is Lying!Delete
OOh nice topic! And picks! All new to me ones but I am curious now about all the secrets within these! Lol!ReplyDelete
Here's my Tuesday Post
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
Ha ha lots of secrets. :)Delete
Ooh, great choice of topic! I have a review copy of One of Us is Lying from NetGalley - I'll have to get to it soon. =)ReplyDelete
I've heard a lot of Radio Silence. I have the other book by the author but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet.ReplyDelete
I liked Radio silence a lot. I haven't read anything else by her though.Delete
These all look intriguing and make you want to know more. Great list! Hugs...ROReplyDelete
I've not read any of these but they all look and sound great. Awesome topic. Unreliable narrators usually scare me after they all seem to get compared to Gone Girl. Hope that comparison ends soon!ReplyDelete
Me too! And I like a good unreliable narrator story, but I totally know what you mean.Delete
Ooh I like this topic!! It's always interesting when characters are hiding something, or aren't reliable. I really want to read Radio Silence and One of Us Is Lying; heard great things about both!ReplyDelete
Radio Silence I REALLY liked, I hope you do too. And I love trying to figure out what characters are hiding... :)Delete
Great list! I think "characters with a secret" could describe a LOT of the books I read!ReplyDelete
I know, me too! what's that all about? :)Delete
Great list! you know I LOVED One of us Is Lying! so that's my fav but I do wnat to read Radio Sielence so badly too!ReplyDelete
Radio Silence is REALLY good! And yes you liked One Of Us- good taste ha ha. I loved it.Delete
Great list! I haven't read any of these but sure I am adding some of these in my list :D Thanks for sharing this.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by!!Delete
Emma in the Night did have some good secrets. I guessed a few, but not all.ReplyDelete
I thought so too, I was so unsure about Emma for a while!Delete
Hi! I've heard great things about One of Us is Lying. I need to get to it on my TBR!ReplyDelete
Hi Leslie. Yes I thought it was a pretty good book. Definitely recommend!!Delete
I love unreliable narrators! I need ot check some of these out and really want to et to One of Us is Lying!ReplyDelete
I thought One Of Us was really good. That's a book that could have went all wrong lol. And yes- unreliable narrators are the best!Delete
What a great list! I haven't read any of these, but they do sound good.ReplyDelete
Yeah, so these all just landed on my TBR. I'm a sucker for this kind of book, so thank you!ReplyDelete
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday Post. Thank you!
Ha ha hope you like some of these.Delete
Lost Girl looks good and Radio Silence has been one I've been meaning to read for months now.ReplyDelete
For What It's Worth
Lost Girls flies under the radar a lot, I think? Never saw many reviews for it, but I thought it was great. Radio Silence I recommend.Delete
Great list! I really want to read One of Us is Lying someday!ReplyDelete
Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday!
Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog
Hope you get to, it good stuff. :)Delete
I hear good things about Jessi's book, but alas, have never read one of her books. 'History' also boasts a really interesting cover design too, which hopefully sets up a good story.ReplyDelete
'Lying' had LOTS of buzz too. I did think it sounded really good, plus who doesn't enjoy a good mystery now and again?? :)
Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland, Greg.
Lying was really good- I didn't know if it would be? And History does have an interesting cover I totally agree. I liked it a lot too.Delete
Oh those secretsReplyDelete
I've only heard of three of these, but interesting take on this week's prompt. I'm always intrigued by unreliable narrators and wish there's more of them.ReplyDelete
I like a good unreliable narrator too. I didn't use to, it was kinda weird not knowing if you could trust the MC, but I've grown to like 'em.Delete
Some great titles. I have One of Us is Lying sitting looking at me right now. Must get on with reading it :-)ReplyDelete
It wants you to read it :)Delete
I read One of Us Is Lying over the summer and I liked it, but it wasn't as thrilling as I'd hoped.ReplyDelete
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2017/09/26/top-ten-tuesday-126/
I've seen some mixed reviews for it. I liked it but when I read some of the negative reviews I totally saw their points, so yeah.Delete
I'm just going to add every single one of these to my TBR list. I love these types of novels and I somehow haven't read any of them?! What a great idea, Greg!ReplyDelete
There you go! Thanks! I think you'll find most of these, any of 'em really, will provide some good suspense and lots of secrets. :)Delete
I'm not familiar with any of these books but Gone Without a Trace and Girls in The Garden look like books I need to find out more about.ReplyDelete
What an excellent list! Characters who lie, or keep secrets, are the best! Readers never know who to trust.ReplyDelete
Now that's a good list of mysteries and psychological thrillers. I'm going to have to check out some of these!ReplyDelete
~Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum
Oooh I love your take on this week's topic! Secrets are such great book fodder. I have enjoyed the two of these I have read (One of Us Is Lying and The Secret History of Us) and so I definitely need to make sure I read the others, too. I need more twisty/secretive books in my life!ReplyDelete
Thanks, I loved BOTH of those!!Delete
ooooh, secrets! What a great topic.ReplyDelete
I have One of Us Is Lying on my October TBR. I can't wait to get to it. Secrets always make stories more exciting.ReplyDelete
What a great list - I'm going to just run a really difficult question by you though, if you had to choose one book from this list that I absolutely must read which would it be? (sorry, I know that questions like that are stinkers but I'm trying not to add all 10 to my list!ReplyDelete
That's a tough one, but I'll say- The Girls in the Garden really stuck with me afterwards.Delete
The Secret History of Us was a good YA, Emma in the Night is quite good as is Radio Silence- but if I had to pick one I'd go with Girls in the Garden.
This was an interesting theme! I've heard good things about Radio Silence and I think that I would love it if I read more books with unreliable narrators and that "WTF is going on" feeling. It's totally cool reading a book and not understanding a thing. It's the best type of feeling... hahaha no. I hate being confused. But it may be interesting.ReplyDelete
I love that idea of WTF is going on- exactly! I didn't use to like unreliable narrators but now I think it adds something- since you have no idea what's happening sometimes! And Radio Silence is good!Delete
I love characters with secrets! Not surprisingly I think almost all of these are on my TBR. I especially want to read the Lisa Jewell book - or really any book by Lisa Jewell at this point. No idea what's taken me so long. Great topic!ReplyDelete
You know I hear so much about Lisa Jewell and I think I've read two of her books now, but The Girls in the Garden was by far my favorite of the two!Delete
I really enjoyed Emma in the Night. The Girls in the Garden is on my TBR list and What She Saw looks interesting too. (And I LOVE that cover!)ReplyDelete
I don't always love characters that are keeping a secret - it stresses me out reading about them, lol. However, I do love amnesia an how that is used to explores identity and who a person really is! Fun choice for this topic!ReplyDelete
Love the topic you went with! These all look so intriguing, and I definitely want to check out The Girls in the Garden!ReplyDelete
Love your spin on this week's topic. Characters with secrets can be so much fun to read about.ReplyDelete
Someone with secrets always adds some suspense and it's fun to try to figure out what they are hiding lol. I like the amnesia twist and need to The Secret History of Us. Great topic for this week Greg!ReplyDelete
I love an unreliable narrator! :-) Looking forward to reading Jessi Kirby's book!ReplyDelete
I've heard great things about Radio Silence!ReplyDelete
I have read none of these, but I am still interested in The Girls In the Garden. :)ReplyDelete
I will admit, all of these books but One of Us Is Lying are new to me! Unreliable narrators are some of my favorites. Sadly, I don't enjoy reading thrillers, so I don't often find them in what I'm reading. Are any of these NOT thrillers?ReplyDelete
Lost Girls is a YA, as is The Secret History Of Us. Not thrillers but more just contemps, although Lost Girls has some fighting. Radio silence is a YA contemp too, and quite good.Delete
I've had Radio Silence for a while, but I may have to pick it up now, especially since secretive characters are one of my favourite kinds.ReplyDelete
Love your topic - I've only read One of Us is Lying of your picks but it was a good mystery. :)ReplyDelete
The Girl From The Sea sounds so good! And Radio Silence has been on my TBR for way too long already :)ReplyDelete
I do enjoy books involving secrets. :-) Maybe because I don't have any interesting ones of my own. I haven't read any of the books on your list, but many are ones I would like to read.ReplyDelete
