Okay, I was originally planning on skipping this week, but.. After being holed up in my library for a couple of days due to work, blog prep and reading.. I found myself staring at some specific books and.. “Hey, I don’t think those got a lot of attention back then” was a common thought. What better way to remedy that than with a Top Ten Tuesday-post? Exactly, no better way!
So, even though this week’s topic is supposed to be a genre-freebie, I’m going with.. “Fantasy and contemporary that deserve more attention”.
All covers link back to Goodreads if you feel like checking them out.
These first three books are actually all first installments of series. Only one of them isn’t completed yet, but they’re all so good. At least, so far. I’ve read all the books in The Boulder Wolves-series and I’m currently reading the third book in The Monster of Selkirk-series. I’m eagerly awaiting the final book in the Thanatos-trilogy! The fourth book is a standalone, but one very much worth reading!

The next six books are all contemporary books that became so important to me – I just had to share them once more. I really feel like these didn’t get the attention they deserved and.. Even though I know I shared some of them a couple of times already, I just have this need to do it again, to reach more people.
