My favourite reads of 2019!

Hi, hey, hello and welcome to my blog 🙂

So yesterday I talked all about my least favourite reads of 2019(which I stupidly titled 2020 and only just realised my mistake because I’m an idiot) and I really went to town on them. Today however is a positive vibes only zone as I’m going to be talking about the best of the bunch. giphy

I read 83 books this year, completely surpassing my intended goal of 60. I’m actually currently reading 2 more, one of which I plan on finishing as soon as I’m done writing this post, and yet I’ve got 9 books to talk about today.

My criteria for picking my “favourites” is based solely off of pure enjoyment. I’ve chosen books which, even all these months later, I’m still thinking about, I’m still excited about and overall I’m’ still in love with.

Any and all book reviews I’ve written this year can all be found HERE.

And finally before I start I just want to say that these are in chronological of when I read them and not by rank or rating or anything like that 🙂

9781471116704Queen of Air & Darkness was the second book I read this year and although it’s an absolute beast of a book I flew through it in just 3 days!

Yes some of the plot decisions were … odd and questionable *cough* Thule. Angelic Giants *cough* but I can’t deny that I had a great time reading.

This book made me feel so much. I sobbed in the beginning for about five chapters straight and that was just the beginning of my tears as the story progressed. I came to love so many new characters with this trilogy and I’m cautiously anticipating future instalments of this universe. Continue reading “My favourite reads of 2019!”

Mid Year Book Freak-Out Tag!

Hello and welcome to my blog!

So far this year my reading is going really well. I’ve somehow managed to read 47 books this year while also keeping up with school work. I’m very proud of this.

Absolutely everybody has been doing the Mid Year Book Freak Out Tag recently and of course I’m jumping on that bandwagon too. This tag looks really fun and I’m excited to look back at what I’ve read.

🌟Best Book You’ve Read So Far In 2019🌟

I genuinely did try to pick something different for this question but this really has been the best book I’ve read so far this year. It was funny yet also emotional with a nice amount of political commentary that I enjoyed. I’ve had to stop myself from re-reading this multiple times. It definitely deserves the hype. My Review. 

🌟Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far in 2019 🌟

To be honest I’ve barely read any sequels this year. I really need to get on that. But definitely out of the few that I’ve read my favourite was Crooked Kingdom. I’m annoyed it took me so long to read this series and I’m dying for new content from these characters. My Review Continue reading “Mid Year Book Freak-Out Tag!”

January Wrap Up.

It’s been a month and it’s been a good ‘un! 

Hello and happy Not January! We’re 1/12 of the way through the year already and I’ve already read 20% of my reading goal! My goal for this year was 60 books and in this past month I’ve read 12!

I was not expecting that but I’m very happy with myself and how this year has started off.

The first two books I completed this month were Lord of Shadows and also Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Claire. So yep, my year started off full of pain and heartbreak but god did I have a good time reading these and completing the trilogy. I absolutely flew through them. I did a whole review on The Dark Artifices trilogy and then I did a really long post with all my thoughts and feeling on Queen of Air and Darkness.

Cliché First Book Haul of the Year :)

Hello 🙂

I’m not gonna lie, this may be going up a little later in the month but I totally bought these just a couple days after Christmas, even though I got a bunch of books then, and they arrived on the 2nd. I have a problem.

So I have 5 books I’ve been wanting for a long time and can’t wait to read.

Series Review: The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare

 

20190106_1058531719963128.jpg

I can’t believe it’s been three years since I first picked up Lady Midnight, my first time following along with each new publication of a Cassandra Clare book and being swept along with all the hype of an upcoming book and all the theories and everything. It was a lot of fun.

I have a decent amount of feelings towards this series so here goes my lil spoiler free ramble Continue reading “Series Review: The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare”

I cannot go another year without ever reading an Adam Silvera. For two years now I’ve been saying I’m going to try one of his book and yet it’s still never happened! I will read this in the next two months or so help me.  Continue reading “Books I Want to Read Before 2019 // Top 5 Wednesday”
