2. Everneath by Brodi Ashton: A Persephone and Hades retelling. This was my first one and I really enjoyed it. Again, I read this in the beginning of the year and I can barely remember it, I really wish I wrote a review. It was a book that I couldn't put down, I bought the second book, but haven't read it. I think I'm going to purchase the third book so I can binge read it then review the whole series.
3. Childstar Part 1 by J.J. McAvoy: My first McAvoy book and I enjoyed it a lot. I didn't realize I was missing out on greatness. I wrote a review on it ( a surprise really)
4. The Selection by Kiera Cass: I'm upset that it took me this long to read this. I let Booktube get to me, so many people talk bad about it, I figured that I wouldn't like it, and I did, I loved it.
5. Gilt by Katherine Longshore: I'm sure you don't know this, I love history a lot. Okay, I love anything that is royalty and ancient empire related. It's unfortunate that I haven't read a lot of historical fiction this year. I actually wrote a Goodreads review (what?!)
6. Armada by Ernest Cline: I feel like I'm in the minority of those who actually loved this book according to the reviews. I loved this more than his Ready Player One book, I don't know if it was the writing or if I wasn't in the mood for it, I'm planning on reading it again next year to see how I feel about it. Reveiw
7. Passoniaries by Tonya Hurley: Okay, according to my Goodreads one sentence review, I thought it was okay, but the ending uped it to a 4.5 stars. I still like the first book better, I need to buy the third and I think the last book and then I will binge read the the series and write a series review.
8. The Glass Sentence by S.E. Grove: First book I read this year and OMG was it amazing. This book will go down as one of my favorite books of all time. I haven't bought the second in the series yet, the last book comes out next year in the summer. I'm definitely going to binge read the series, because I love the world. Goodreads review.
9. The Tropic of Serpents (#2) by Marie Brennan: A history about dragons? Um, yes please. I read the first book last year and enjoyed it. This is the second book in the series and I liked it more than the first book. Review. Review of the first book.
10. The Voyage of the Basilisk (#3) by Marie Brennan: My favorite book of the series so far. The squealed that came out of my mouth when I found out that I was approved to read this before it came out was a loud one. I need to stop messing around and get the physical copy because I love the pictures. Review.
11. Uprooted by Naomi Novik: A stand-alone fantasy? Yes please, get in my hands now. I finally found a booktuber I trusted and I was disappointed in this. The world building was beautiful, the characters were wonderful and flawed, and developed as the story went on. And I wish it was a duology, just because I love this world so much and don't want to let go, which is why it took me forever to read.
12. Dorothy Must Die: Stories by Danielle Paige: Dorothy Must Die was one of my favorite books of last year. This is a bind up of the first three novellas for the series. Admittedly it took me a while to get through it because the second novella wasn't my favorite. I actually wrote the review of my other blog and forgot to transfer it to this one. Review.
13. Mercy by Lucian Bane: The first book I read from this author, but I own the first two Dom Wars. This would be like how I don't trust booktubers, same thing with some reviews I trust on Facebook. There was a lot of negative things I was hearing about this author and his writing that I was put off for the longest. My review explains why I read this book.
What are some of your favorite books of the year?
