1.THE BEST BOOK YOU’VE READ THIS YEAR:
I can’t choose one book for this so I’m going to list out the top best books I’ve read so far!
Gemina(Illuminae Files #2) By Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff: A total perfection!
Eliza And Her Monsters By Francesca Zappia: This was ultra cute with adorable characters and cute romance.
Caraval By Stephanie Garber: Enchanting world and beautiful writing style.
Legion(Talon#4) By Julie Kagawa: Totally Action Packed, fast-paced and Thrilling.
ACOWAR By Sarah J. Mass: Best Conclusion to Feyre’s story.
2.YOUR FAVORITE SEQUEL OF THE YEAR:
This was so hard to answer because I was torn between ACOWAR and Gemina but I finally decided to go with Gemina. It was really an awesome sequel and I loved it even more than Illuminae. This book is a total perfection! I loved every aspect of this book especially the beautiful graphics and the wonderful characters. It is a must read for every YA Sci-fi lovers.
3.A NEW RELEASE THAT YOU HAVEN’T READ BUT REALLY WANT TO:
I’ve been hearing great things about The Hundredth Queen so I really can’t wait to check it out. I love hate-to-love romance tropes so when I saw Christina Lauren’s Dating you and Hating You, I immediately added it into my TBR. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a Samantha Young’s book. The synopsis of The Impossible Vastness of Us really intrigued me so I’m planning to read it soon.
4.MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF THE YEAR:
I’m quite excited for so many books that aren’t released yet but below are the books that I’m literally dying to read. I’m already in love with those gorgeous covers!
5.YOUR BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT:
RoseBlood By A.G. Howard: I loved the beautiful cover of this book but sadly, I was very disappointed with the execution of the story. I tried very hard to love it but wordy books with slow paced plots aren’t to my liking.
6.BIGGEST SURPRISE OF THE YEAR:
Nemesis By Brendan Reichs: This book really surprised me. I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. This was quite a thrilling read that kept me on my toes through out.
Air And Ash By Alex Lidell: This is another book that took me by surprise. It is an underrated book that must be read by everyone who loves sea Adventures. I’ve already read the sequel to this book and I loved it too.

8.YOUR NEW FICTIONAL CRUSH:

Letters To The Lost By Brigid Kemmerer is so beautiful and wonderfully written. It’s a heart felt story that totally moved me. If you like to read emotional YA reads then I highly recommend this book.
11.A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY:
Well, I have two cute books for this one!
Eliza And Her Monsters By Francesca Zappia: I can’t say how much I loved this book! It was super cute and also pretty emotional. The main characters in this book are super adorable. I enjoyed the format of this book and also the sweet romance between Eliza and Wallace.
Adorkable By Cookie O’Gorman: I’m not a fan of best friends to lovers trope but I immensely enjoyed reading this book. It was definitely an adorkable read with adorkable characters and an adorkable romance. It kept a smile on my face through out.
