What is the best book that you’ve read so far in 2019?
The Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima – This was an absolutely amazing conclusion to the Seven Realms Series and I have been obsessed ever since I finished this book!
What has been your favourite sequel for the first half of the year?
Legendary by Stephanie Garber – Caraval was just a little bit meh for me. I wasn’t all that invested in the characters and the magic system felt lacking to me. Then I picked up Legendary and the story was just elevated to another level.
Is there a new release that you haven’t read yet that you’re really excited to?
The Bride Test by Helen Hoang – I read The Kiss Quotient a few weeks ago now and LOVED it and I knew immediately that I needed to pick up The Bride Test and see how it compares!
What is your most anticipated release for the second half of the year?
Dark Dawn by Jay Kristoff – Godsgrave ended with a massive cliff-hanger, I need to know what is going to happen next! I am super excited to see what the outcome will be.
What is your biggest disappointment so far?
Circe by Madeline Miller – It just bored me…
What is your biggest surprise so far?
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid – from the way that people explained the plot and the hype surrounding this book kind of turned me off from wanting to read it, but when I saw my local library had a copy I picked it up, read it and ended up really enjoying the book!
What is your favourite new to you or debut author?
Adrienne Young – I just recently read Sky in the Deep and I absolutely loved it! There were so many moving scenes in this book and I was super invested from the start.
What is your favourite fictional crush from this year?
Aeduan from the Witchlands Series – Bad/dangerous characters are my vice!
What is your new favourite character?
It changes constantly, right now at this moment I would probably say Nona from Red Sister. She’s had to deal with so much in life already, yet she won’t give up!
A book that made you cry?
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – how could you not cry reading this book?
A book that made you happy?
Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend – I loved this book, it very fast paced and I was entertained from the first chapter to the last. The premise of the book is so unique and the execution was very well done! I had a smile on my face throughout the entirety of this book!
Your favourite book to movie/TV show that you’ve seen so far?
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before! – It was a great adaptation in my opinion. Both the book and the movie were super entertaining, a little bit cringey and very fast paced. They do tackle some deep emotional topics that are very current in today’s society which I thought made both the book and the movie very relevant.
What is your favourite post that you have written so far this year?
I love my monthly books stats posts!
What is the most beautiful book that you have bought?
King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo – foiled/shiny covers are my favourite and this book is the epitome of everything I love!
