It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Normally Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah Bionic Book Worm and it is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
However, since it’s Christmas Shanah is taking a break and there are no prompts for today and next week. So, I’m improvising a bit. Today I’ll share my favorite book reviews I wrote this year and next week you’ll get a wrap up of my entire blogging year (including also non-bookish posts!).
#1 A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I started this year by reading the ACOTAR series by Sarah J. Maas. At that time I was hooked and just couldn’t put the books down. Although I since have found a few issues I have with her novels, I love all the ACOTAR reviews I wrote because I so passionate about the books at that moment. You can really tell when you read my review for A Court of Mist and Fury.
#2 A Court of Hearts and Darkness by (ACOTAR FanFic)
After I had a huge bookish hangover when I finished the ACOTAR books, I searched the web for some more material. I just wasn’t ready yet to part with this world!
I happened to stumble upon an utterly brilliant fanfiction on tumblr. (When I say fanfiction I actually mean an entire book length-wise.) You can’t imagine how I cried during a particular chapter (read it and you’ll know which one I mean right away)! It’s such a great piece of writing and I also wanted to give a shoutout to all the fanfiction writers out there who pour so much time and effort into their works!
Here’s the link for those who want to check it out!
#3 The Wicked King by Holly Black
So, when I picked up The Cruel Prince, I also got a copy of The Wicked King right away, ’cause when in Rome, you know? I couldn’t put down the books and basically finished them both in one go. You can tell how utterly excited I was when writing the review!
#4 Heartless by Marissa Meyer
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer are among my favorite series, so I was more than curious to check out Heartless. I had a great time not only reading the book but comprising a review on the smart and intricate twist and turns Meyer puts on a story that is inspired by the well known Alice in Wonderland book.
#5 Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Sometimes, when you read a book, you’re feeling all the feels at once and don’t even know where to start. That’s how it was for me with Six of Crows. My review is a little all over the place but it also shows how drawn in I was by all the different aspects of the novel. I couldn’t decide what to talk about first as it all was so brilliant!
