Top 10 Tuesday | Ten Books To Read If You Need To Escape Reality

Alright! We are back on track and heading full steam ahead this week! Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday,  a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish! This week’s topic is “Top 10 Books to Read if You Want to Feel [X].” So I chose to do my top 10 books to read if you’re looking to escape reality! Here we go…

  1. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh: This beautifully written retelling of The Arabian Nights is just out of this world. Ahdieh pulls you into a glorious, rich world and doesn’t let you go!
  2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas: This book is perfect for escaping reality with its action, adventure, and romance! The book just sucks you in!
  3. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: This. Book. It just sucks you in. The format causes you to get so immersed in the story and feel like you’re right there! So perfect to get away from life!
  4. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski: Warning: this book is intense. But that’s why it’s so good for escaping reality! You just get so invested in the story and the characters!
  5. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin: This is another intense book which combines incredible writing with such a compelling plot! There’s a lot of things going on in this book and it’s hard to explain, but just trust me, it’s good.
  6. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: This is perhaps my favorite book for escaping reality. It’s just so gorgeously written and such a unique story! So good!
  7. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi: If you want an interesting romance with a hint of dystopian to take you our of life, this is your book.
  8. ANY Harry Potter Book by J.K. Rowling: I feel like I don’t really need to explain this one…
  9. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: This reach features rich worldbuilding and compelling characters. It’s so easy to lose yourself in Bardugo’s decadent Grishaverse.
  10. The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassadra Clare: Any one of Clare’s series set in the complex world of the shadowhunters will do. It’s easy to lose yourself in these books which Clare obviously put a ton of work into!
