#T5W Top 5 Books that Blew my Mind (In a Good Way)

top 5

Hello All!

Thought I would take a break from WWW Wednesday this week and do a Top 5 courtesy for Top 5 Wednesdays over at Goodreads!

Today I’m going to introduce you all to the Top 5 Books that BLEW MY MIND!!  You know those books that you finished and you suddenly find yourself dazed and confused, half way to Mexico thinking “….what just happened???”

Okay… maybe that’s exaggerating a little, BUT YOU ALL KNOW WHAT I MEAN!! Now these are in no particular order as it’s hard enough for me to MAKE a list, let alone PUT IT IN ORDER!! You’ll also notice that all of these books are a little newer. Well, I’m pretty sure I am getting senile. With all of the books I’ve read, I can only seem to remember the ones that Goodreads can remind me about unless I look through my physical collection which is 90% packed up in boxes due to lack of room… so, this is a list of the Top 5 I can REMEMBER!!

Have any of you ever seen the movie “Cube”?? It’s a classic, and one of my favourites! (Okay, so in a cheesy way… Cube 2: Hypercube was EVEN BETTER!) This book blew my mind like that. Words cannot describe. I hope to review this book for a #TBT someday when I have time to re-red something again! Check it out on Goodreads, and if you’re smart, ADD IT TO YOU TBR LIST!!

So, if any of you say”but I saw the movie and it wasn’t very good!”  …I WILL NEVER SPEAK TO YOU AGAIN!! The movie was BAD. Just steer clear. But, PLEASE! Read the book!! It is very weird, but in an amazing way!! (Another one I want to re-read as a #TBT!! Mostly because I now have book #3 in the series “What the Hell Did I Just Read” and I want to go into it fresh!) Check it out on Goodreads!

I had to add this one to the list because, it not only left me AT THE END thinking “what just happened??” It started me at the BEGINNING thinking that! I had no idea what this book was about, and I think that’s how EVERYONE should go into it! I’m going to leave a link to Goodreads. But, DON’T READ ANY REVIEWS!! Just read the book yourself, you’ll thank me!!

100 word horror

Okay, so I know that I talk about this book….A LOT. But, SERIOUSLY there’s a reason for that!! It was so much better than anything I would have expected!! It was a little bit of every sort of horror! check out my review HERE if you missed it, also check it out of Goodreads!

A FANTASTIC Graphic Novel Series that has such an intricate story and such FANTASTIC illustrations! I would read them again and again if I had the time, because I feel like every time I did I would learn something new!! I’ll leave you a link yo the first one on Goodreads so you can add it to your TBR!

  1. I’m glad to know you enjoyed Dark Matter. I will have to give it a second chance someday. I couldn’t finish it the first time around.. I think I stopped around him acting as the guy everyone thinks he is when he knows he shouldn’t be at the strange place and needed to find his wife and kid even though the wife doesn’t know him.

    1. I’ll have to add that one to my list! I know that I’ll probably think of others that I should have added to mine… But, I’m always so addle-brained I can never think of anything when put in the spot! It’s like people who pull amazing quotes out of thin air! I didn’t start making notes of quotes until I started blogging, so anything I read more than 5 months ago is lost to me. 😕


    1. Thank you! I’m glad you agree. I went into “the girl with all the Gifts” without looking at much about it. It was just in sale or something… I TOTALLY didn’t expect what it was actually about! 👍📚


    1. Exactly 100 words. No more, no less. And they are AMAZING! Some are a little funny, some are gory, some take you a minute to grasp and you just go “….. Wow.” literally, I can’t describe how awesome they are and the nice thing is that since they’re just 100 word stories you and pick them up and read a few whenever! It also gives you a feel for a lot if amazing authors! 💖💖 I can’t say enough good things about this collection!!

      1. True… you just take in a bit of the horror and then take a break.. Come back as some later point. You are certainly excited about this one. Your enthusiasm is infectious! 😉

    1. Well, I really hope you enjoy them if you do get to them! SO GOOD!!! Definitely let me know what you think. Make sure you follow my tip and Dont look at ANY reviews of “the Girl with all the Gifts”!! It’s so much better going in blind! 👍🍻

      1. Yes. That’s a great reminder! I usually don’t read synopses or reviews right before I start or book or while I read it. Too many books ruined that way! I actually think I have that book on my kindle languishing and I know I have Dark Matter from BOTM.
