I think my favorite book this year was The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I was so utterly impressed by how her intelligence shown through this book. It may be a young adult novel, but the writing and characters are all incredibly clever and mature. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.

House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski is absolutely bonkers. It’s kind of like a book within a book within a book if that makes any type of sense.

The author spent I think over 10 years writing it and you can definitely imagine that it would take that long to make this masterpiece. The book is also so full of hidden puzzles and messages that there are websites dedicated to trying to find them.

The Things She’s Seen by Ambelin and Ezekiel Kwaymullina is absolutely amazing. Rob and I both loved it so so much but not a lot of people know of its existence. We bought this completely randomly during one trip to Barnes & Noble and I’m so glad we did. It was one of our choices for Trope-ical Readathon’s Team Horror/Thriller/Mystery because of how much we want to promote it.

Magic Unleashed by Devri Walls is a book that I only read as part of a book tour with The Write Reads and even then I think I only agreed because I don’t know how to say no to Dave lol!

I’m not much of a fantasy reader so I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy this much but I actually really liked it!

I’m going to go with The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson for this one because I’ve read this book around 5 times.

I’m pretty sure I only picked this up at the insistence of my friend Arlia who lived in the dorm room across the hall from mine and I absolutely loved it. I often return to it when I’m looking for something that will comfort me.

I reviewed the audiobook on one of my rereads and you can read that here.

Dating Makes Perfect by Pintup Dunn was a book I read for a Hear Our Voices blog tour and the relationship the main character has with her two siblings was one of the healthiest, loveliest things I’ve ever seen in a book.

So often YA books rely on family miscommunication or straight up abuse in order to drive their plot forward so I always appreciate when a book actually revolves around supportive family members.

I’m not quite sure what this means but I think I’m going to go with The Spark by Jules Wake because this book shook me so much that I guess you could say it was like time froze.

I recently review this so you’ll probably remember why this book rattled me so much, but it was because I felt like I was reliving experiences that happened to me two years ago.

I’m going to have to go with The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. This was one of my favorite reads back when I was in college and I loved it so much that I convinced several of my friends to pick it up. I even lent my partner my copy before we started dating because I wanted him to read it.

I read this years before I even had a book blog so I have no review to link you to, but I recently read the first book in the spinoff series (Call Down the Hawk) so that review should be posted soon!

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston is one of my favorite books of all time. I cried to much reading this and I would definitely want this to be on an island with me if I were stranded.

I’ve been dying to reread this book again so I’ll have to pick it up soon!

Amari and the Night Brothers by B. B. Alston is a book I have to read very soon for a blog tour that I’m participating in.

I think that every single review I’ve seen for this book so far has been 5 stars so I’m super excited to finally start it!

My post date is the 19th so expect to hear from me then!

I don’t know if this counts as an upcoming book but the fourth book in the Shades of London series by Maureen Johnson was supposed to come out in 2018 and basically no one knows what has happened with it.

I would definitely get hit by a brick to read it right now because IVE BEEN WAITING ON THIS BOOK FOR YEARS.

My partner, Rob, convinced me to read The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton (I think for a readathon) and I absolutely loved it. I was worried that it would be boring since it’s very science-y at times but it was so thrilling that it literally had me on the edge of my seat at times.

You can catch my full review for this one here.

I don’t know if this was the funniest book I ever read by The Hating Game by Sally Thorne was definitely a book that made me laugh out loud multiple times.

I remember loving this book so much that I deemed sally Thorne an auto-buy author though I admittedly have not bought any more of her books LOL.

Does Captain Underpants by Dav Pikley count? This was a series I read a lot as a kid and I recently re-read the first three books of the series earlier this year.

It was still just as funny and enjoyable as I remembered it. I even convinced Rob to read them haha.

Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell was a book that tore my heart out and ripped it to pieces. I was so afraid to get to the end of the book because I was worried that what I wanted to be worked out would still be left hanging and I was right.

I need the next book to come out and RIGHT THE WRONGS THAT THIS BOOK CAUSED.

This prompt is JUST ASKING FOR TROUBLE. ARE YOU TRYING TO CANCEL ME?

I might have to default to Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I haven’t read this since the first time I did in 2007 so I don’t know how my adult self feels about this book but my young teenager self adored it. I remember proudly walking around telling everyone it was my favorite book.

I was going to say 50 Shades of Grey but I felt like that would have been too easy so I decided to go with another book that I hated which was I Kissed Alice by Anna Birch.

The two main characters are kind of total dicks the entire book and I couldn’t handle it. I thought it would get better but they stayed true to their terrible nature. I honestly feel like I might have hated every character.

I was trying to think of a book where there isn’t a bunch of unnecessary drama and Bewitched by Kelly Moran was the first one I could remember.

What made the romance good in this book was the fact that the two main characters never had to deal with forced drama between them. A lot of romance books rely heavily on the miscommunication trope but as far as I remember, these two stayed very much devoted to each other throughout the book.

PHEW that’s finally the end! This was one of the hardest posts I’ve ever had to write! Did you see any books that you’re interested in or have read before?

I Tag: YOU! This post took all my brain power so I can’t think right now but if you’d like to do this, pretend I tagged you!
