SUNNIVA’S TOP FIVE

Hi everyone! I’m Sunniva, and like Cheryl, I’m a rebel. Five top reads? Goodness, I could start out by naming every one of Cheryl’s books, and already I’d run out of room by bucket loads.

A few words about me first, then we’ll move on to my favorite books (not written by a co-blogger):

First of all, I’m honored to be a part of this four leaf clover. Kristy and Wenn are our seasoned bloggers, so I’ll be watching and learning. As for reviews, it’s something I’ve enjoyed for a while; when a novel hits me in the heart or the gut, I just have to write about it.

Originally, I’m from Norway, but I’ve moved around a bit, dipping into Spain and Argentina before settling in the US. I’ve been here for a decade and a half. The people, the climate, heck, even the language suits me perfectly.

But back to what matters!

I adore reading and writing angst, passion, deep love, and realistic conflicts that need solved between the protagonists. I love beautiful stories and endings that surprise me. The way a story is written means a heck-of-a-lot to me. It’s not everything though; to give a novel five stars, I need to crush on two of three:

1) the writing,

2) the execution of the conflicts,

3) the storyline.

Oh and I should mention that I’m an absolute sucker for layered, beautifully broken characters and awesome psychological development.

I have a hard time tagging books as “favorites,” but these are ten books that have stuck with me, touching me as a reader or a writer:

Thoughtless — by S.C. Stephens

Thoughtless

Dusty (Innocents and Delinquents) — Mary Elizabeth and Sarah Elizabeth (perma-free on Amazon)Dusty
I’ll Give You The Sun—Jandy Nelson

I'll Give you the Sun

Find You In The Dark – A. Meredith Walters

Don’t Let Me Go, A Story About Falling—Sarah Elizabeth(perma-free novella on Amazon.)25362626

 

First Kisses—Dina Littner (short story)25930380

Oh and if you think that was twelve reads, then you are right. But I’m pretty much number-dyslexic—and, plus, the two last ones aren’t novels and count as one. So there. Now we’re a lot closer to ten. 😛

Thank you for reading!

Look out for my reviews as they come.

xoxo

Sunniva
