I’ve read just over 100 books this year so far out of my (new) goal of 150. I’ve read fantasy, classics, fiction, sci-fi, novellas, epically long novels, memoirs, nonfiction, and romance. But, more fantasy than anything, because it’s my favorite.
The Locked Tomb series (beginning with Gideon the Ninth) is just incredible. Tamsyn Muir’s ability to write unique fantasy is unprecedented, and I will read anything she writes. Harrow ripped my heart out, and Nona felt like a warm hug. Waiting very impatiently for the next in the series.
Olivie Blake is another of my favorite writers. Immediately after reading, I gave this one three stars, I believe. But this book has stuck with me for months. The writing and the characters were just memorable. I’ve gifted it to several people, because it’s that good.
I didn’t expect to enjoy this one, being burnt out on Thrillers, but it was a book club pick. This was more than a thriller — it was a funny one. I breezed through this book with several laughs.
Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. Fourth Wing has taken the book world by storm, with its sprayed edges (if you were lucky enough to get it) and everyone is anticipating Iron Flame this November.
This historical-inspired, sci-fi combo book gripped me from the start. The characters were so well developed and fierce.
John Green’s book of essays written during the pandemic is just feel-good.
If you enjoy fantasy and I can convince you to read one book this year, let it be this one!!! I love this book so much!
