img_4188-4   1.Best Book You’ve Read So Far This Year?

p

It’s really hard to come up with a favorite book so far as a lot of the books I’ve read are equal in my mind. This one however, is a little above the rest. It’s so bittersweet and has the absolute best atmosphere ever. I still think about those mouthwatering food descriptions.

2.Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far This Year?

35583527

This technically isn’t a sequel but a companion novel to When Dimple Met Rishi. I haven’t read any actual series this year so this will have to do. Sandhya Menon’s books are all so fluffy and adorable and just a burst of sunshine. There’s Something about Sweetie was so no exception and I fell head over heels with this utterly gorgeous book.

3. New Release You Haven’t Read Yet but Want To?

41473872

I’ve wanted to read this book ever since Mason started talking about it under the hashtag EnbyLovestory. I can’t believe it’s finally published! It looks like a great book and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

4. Most Anticipated Release For The Second Half of The Year?

37632682

I fell in love with Scythe and Thunderhead last year, so I can’t wait to get my hands on The Toll. While I’m sad that this is the last book in the series, I’m really excited to see how it ends.

5. Biggest Disappointment?

 

31145148

I was so excited for this book that was supposed to flip the love triangle trope on its ehad, but it was soo bad. There was too many plot holes, the world building was weak and the characters were undeveloped. Huge disappointment.

6.Biggest Surprise?

25663744

I haven’t heard much about this book and I just picked it up on a whim, but it was such a great contemporary. It was the perfect mix of cute and serious, and had a great balance of a swoon-worthy love interest, great friendships and interesting family dynamics. I can’t wait to read Emery Lord’s other books.

 

7.Favorite New Author( Debut or New To You)?

38739562

I recently read both Set The Fire on High and The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo and really enjoyed both of them.  Her writing is so lyrical and beautiful and her characters are really interesting. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

8. Newest Fictionl Crush?

I don’t really get crushes on fictional characters. Pass!

9.Newest Favorite Character?

Alex Claremont-Diaz from Red, White and Royal Blue. He was such an amazing character and I loved reading about his shenaningans with Prince Henry

10.Book That Made You Cry?

21853621

Oof this book hit me right in the feels. I love emotional Historical fiction and this book definitely delivered. The ending killed me. Definitely recommend this book if you’re into books about World War 2

 

11. Book That Made You Happy?

27779275

Emma Mills’ contemporaries are honestly the best thing ever and they always put a smile on my face. This one was no exception and made me giddy with happiness. She’s such an underrated author and I wish more people would read her books!

 

12. Prettiest Book You’ve Bought or Received This Year.

36060984

I bought this gorgeous book at Shakespeare and Company while I was in Paris and I can’t wait to read it. Oscar Wilde is such an icon.

 

 

13. What Books Do you Need To Read By The End of The Year.

There’s not any specific books that I can think of off the top of my head. We’ll see where my tastes take me for the rest of the year.

So without further ado let’s get into the amazing books I read this year.

best-YA-books-2014-900x244

1. Best Book You Read In 2018?

It’s really hard to chose just one book it’s the one that I just keep coming back whenever I think about the question so I think Sadie by Courtney Summers. I mean all of her books are amazing but this one just blew me out of the water.

2. Book You Were Excited About & Thought You Were Going To Love More But Didn’t?

About A Girl by Sarah Mccarry.  The cover was of two girls kissing and I was like “awesome, this is going to be gay af and I’m going to love it” And while it was very gay, it was also weird as fuck and I had no idea what was going on 99% of the time. I was really disappointed.

 3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read?  

More Than This by Patrick Ness. I had no idea what to expect going into it and only had like a really vague idea of what it was about. This book blew me out the water and I was really surprised by the awesome turn it took.

 4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did)?

I don’t really recommend books to people I know IRL because I know they won’t read it so let’s pass this one.

 5. Best series you started in 2018? Best Sequel of 2018? Best Series Ender of 2018?

Best Series: Scythe by Neal Shusterman. That series is fucking amazing and I need the third book ASAP

Best Sequel: Leah on The Offbeat by Becky Albertalli. This book is the perfect conclusion to the simonverse and I love everything about it.

Best Series Ender: Of Monsters and Men by Patrick Ness. This series ruined me and I loved it.

 6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2018?

Katherine Locke. The Balloonmakers duology is the best thing ever and I can’t wait to read whatever else she comes out with.

7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?

Frankenstein was one the only classics that I read by choice this year and I loved it so much!! It was so fascinating and I could talk about it for hours.

 

 8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year?

The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. This book was so thrilling and there were so many twists and turns that had me reeling. It’s one of the most cleverly executed thrillers I’ve ever read.

 9. Book You Read In 2018 That You Would Be MOST Likely To Re-Read Next Year?

Probably Bridge of Clay. A year that goes by without me reading Markus Zusak isn’t really a year at all.

10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2018?

probably Far From The Tree by Robin Benway. It’s really simple but I love it.

33830437

11. Most memorable character of 2018?

Probably Sadie From Sadie by Courntey Summers. Everything that that girl went through hurt my soul and I just want to protect her at all cost.

 

 12. Most beautifully written book read in 2018?

Bridge of Clay By Markus Zusak. Hands down. His writing will never cease to amaze me.

13. Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2018?

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.  Everybody needs to read this book. It’s so important and beautifully written and just such a relevant book for our current political climate.

 14. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2018 to finally read? 

Station Eleven by Emily St-John Mandel. I’ve heard about this book for years now and I never really understand what the hype was about. But when I read it , I finally understood. THis book is amazing and arguably the best postapocalyptic story I’ve ever read.

 15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2018?

” “I’m Not anything if I’m not writing, Mr Hemingway.’

‘Ernest,’ he said.

‘Ernest,’ I repeated, thinking, in the end, the writing was the only thig that saved me, that kept me from being sucked down into the sludge pit of darkness and doubt. Wondering if any small bit of Ernest Hemingway might be the same way, if a writer as succesful as he was ever questioned his words, his worth, the cost of what it took to pour al lof yourself into  a book that people might just abandon, half-read, on a chair in a bus station, even with a whole long journey to pass.”

It’s from Beautiful Exiles by Meg Waite Clayton and this quote hit me so hard.

16.Shortest & Longest Book You Read In 2018?

Shortest: Sea Prayer by Khaled Hosseni

Longest: A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara

 17. Book That Shocked You The Most

Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman. That ending killed me and if the third book doesn’t come out soon I may not survive

 

18. OTP OF THE YEAR (you will go down with this ship!)

Matteo and Rufus from They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera. Only Silvera could make me root for two people who just met and are going to die on the same die.

19. Favorite Non-Romantic Relationship Of The Year

The relationship between Grace, Maya and Joaquin. This book is chock full of beautiful relationships but the one between the three biological siblings was my absolute favorite.

20. Favorite Book You Read in 2018 From An Author You’ve Read Previously

Our Year Of Maybe by Rachel Lynn Solomon. This book was amazing and somehow even better than her first one.

21. Best Book You Read In 2018 That You Read Based SOLELY On A Recommendation From Somebody Else/Peer Pressure/Bookstagram, Etc.:

22. Newest fictional crush from a book you read in 2018?

I domn’t get fictional crushes.

23. Best 2018 debut you read?

Blood Water Paint by Joy McCullough. This book was absolutely phenonemal.

24. Best Worldbuilding/Most Vivid Setting You Read This Year?

I feel like I’ve mentioned this book so many times but I’m obsessed. The Scythe Series by Neal Shusterman has amazing worldbuilding and I could highkey read an entire book entirely about the history of the world.

25. Book That Put A Smile On Your Face/Was The Most FUN To Read?

Born a Crime: Stories From A South African Childhood by Trevor Noah. This book was fucking hilarious and had me in laughter induced tears multiple times.

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. This book was beautifully crafted and so bittersweet and the way the story progressed had me in tears multple times.

A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara had me in tears  throughout pretty much the entire book. This book wrecked me.

29. Most Unique Book You Read In 2018?

30. Book That Made You The Most Mad (doesn’t necessarily mean you didn’t like it)?

Brief Chronicle of Another Stupid Heartbreak by Adi Alsaid. This book pissed me off and just I felt absolutely no sympathy for the main character and reading about her stupid decisions made me want to throw something.

book-blogging-900x244

1. New favorite book blog/Bookstagram/Youtube channel you discovered in 2018?

I absolute love Elise’s blog.

My discussion post on whether Holocaust Books are still important. It’s a post that was very personal and something I’ve been thinking about for quite some time.

3. Favorite bookish related photo you took in 2018:?

Screen Shot 2018-12-22 at 12.16.11 PM

Honestly I haven’t taken many bookish photos but I like this one of my ticket for when I went to see Love, Simon.

4. Best bookish event that you participated in (author signings, festivals, virtual events,  etc.)?

HCC Frenzy invited me to go see an early screening of Love, Simon and it was sooo much fun. Little did I know that this would become my favorite movie that I would watch over 50 times.

5. Best moment of bookish/blogging life in 2018?

I hate to sound like a broken record but seeing Love, Simon.

6. Most challenging thing about blogging or your reading life this year?

Finding the motivation to blog and readwhile I had other obligations. This summer I was working at a sumemr camp with no internet access for two months so I had to backlog a lot of blog posts which worked out in the end but during that time I barely read which really sucked.   But then with school I was just so overhwhelmed this semester that the amount of posts I came out with was really disapointing

7. Most Popular Post This Year On Your Blog (whether it be by comments or views)?

For some reason my review of The Cruelty  keeps getting views and I have no idea why since it’s not that great of a review and I wrote it like two years ago.

8. Post You Wished Got A Little More Love?

My post on what Love, Simon means to me.

9. Best bookish discover (book related sites, book stores, etc.)?

I recently discovered that Overdrive is the best thing ever created and though I used to be not totally sold on ebooks, it’s not basically all I read. There are so many amazing books on there and I don’t have to go anywhere to get them and it’s free!!!

10.  Did you complete any reading challenges or goals that you had set for yourself at the beginning of this year?

I set myself a goodreads goal to read 100 books which I surpassed by reading 153 books!!

looking-ahead-books-2015-900x244

1. One Book You Didn’t Get To In 2018 But Will Be Your Number 1 Priority in 2019?

A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult. As soon as it becomes avaliable at my library, I’m jumping on it.

2. Book You Are Most Anticipating For 2019 (non-debut)?

You Asked For Perfect by Laura Silverman. I’m so excited for this book. I absolutely loved Girl Out of Water and I think that this one is going to be even better.

3. 2019 Debut You Are Most Anticipating?

Again But Better by Christine Riccio. I’m usually super wary of Youtubers writing books but Christine seems super dedicated to her novel and it just looks really amazing. She’s a really funny person and I think her humor and overall tone would translate really well into a book.

 4. Series Ending/A Sequel You Are Most Anticipating in 2019?

I hate to sound like a broken record but the third book in the scythe series is supposed to come out and I NEED IT NOW.

5. One Thing You Hope To Accomplish Or Do In Your Reading/Blogging Life In 2019?

I just want to create as much quality content as I possibly can.

6. A 2019 Release You’ve Already Read & Recommend To Everyone (if applicable):

A Place for Wolves by Kosoko Jackson. This book is fucking amazing and y’all need to read it when it comes out.

Have You Read Any of the Books I Mentioned? How Was Your Reading Year? Did You Do The End of Year Book Survey? Let Me Know in The Comments Down Below!

The #NotAll Book Tag

#NotAll Cover Changes
A cover change you liked

6936382.jpg17453983.jpg

I’m so glad that they changed the cover for this. The original covers were so ugly and they just didn’t represent the books well enough which initially made me not want to read it. The new covers are much more appealing to the eye and I think that they draw people in much more.

 

 

#NotAll Adaptations
An adaptation you love more than the book

22628.jpg51QLrwZAlHL._SY445_.jpg

I honestly can’t stand the book version of The Perks of Being a Wallflower but the movie version is one of my favorite movies. I just feel as though the plot can be more easily expressed in a movie format and it was a lot more touching and impactful

 

#NotAll Tropes
A trope you’ll never get tired of seeing

Friends to Lovers. Personally I love all tropes but Friends to lovers is my favorite one of them all. I love seeing friendships going beyond that.

 

#NotAll  Insta-love
You insta-loved this insta-couple

28763485.jpg

I never thought that I’d fall in love with this book because I didn’t see how two people falling in love in one day would work but  somehow Yoon managed to do it. Natasha and Daniel have the best chemistry

 

#NotAll Love Triangles
An example of a love triangle done well

7171637.jpg

I honestly can’t stand love triangles but the one between Tessa, Jem and Will in The Infernal Devices is bearable

#NotAll Parents
Bookish parents that, you know, parent!

35069562.jpg

Simon’s parents in Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda are so great, I love them so much! They’re supportive and care about their children and are actually present. Albertalli is really great at creating complex parental characters.

 

#NotAll Villains
A villain you love

36381037.jpg

I honestly couldn’t think of that many books with obvious villains in them but I really love Levanna in The Lunar Chronicles. I think that we especially get to know

 

#NotAll Chosen Ones
A chosen one you can get behind

3.jpg

 

I’m not a huge fantasy reader so I couldn’ t really think of any other books besides HP. I personally don’t mind the chosen one trope that much. I think especially since HP was really one of the first major books to do it, it worked pretty well.

#NotAll Hyped Books
A book that lived up to the acclaim

20170404.jpg

I honestly thought that since everyone was raving about this book, I wouldn’t like it that much but it was amazing. It deserves all the hype it gets and one of my top books of 2018.

#NotAll *Insert Favourite Genre*
A book you’re not keen on from your favourite genre

29844228.jpg

This is my least favorite book of all time and I will never get tired of talking about how bad it is. I love YA contemporaries especially when they discuss pertinent issues like depression and suicide but this book is trash and doesn’t deserve any recognition whatsoever.

#NotAll *Insert Least Favourite Genre*
A book you liked from a genre you don’t often read

34221193.jpg

I’m not a huge paranormal romance reader but this book was so much fun! It’s not amazingly written and it doesn’t have that great of a plot but it’s still a really fun read. I need to read The Luxe series now!!

Mid-Year Book Freak-Out Tag

img_4188-4   1.Best Book You’ve Read So Far This Year?

20170404.jpg

Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel. I haven’t stopped thinking about this book since I read it. It’s truly amazing and beautiful and I highly recommend it. It’s best to go into reading it not knowing much because any of your expectations will be blown out of the water.

2.Best Sequel You’ve Read So Far This Year?

7540092.jpg

So I finally finished The Chaos Walking Trilogy and oh my god!!!!! It was so emotional and beautiful and Patrick Ness is truly a genius. I am still in shock. I came close to tears so many times and it was just so amazing and beautiful. Definitely my favorite series.

3. New Release You Haven’t Read Yet but Want To?

31625039.jpg

Let’s Talk About Love sounds so amazing oh my god!! A biromantic ace black love interest? There’s a 100% chance that I will love it and I just can’t wait to get my hands on this beauty.

4.Most Anticipated Release For The Second Half of The Year?

My two favorite authors are coming out with books this fall- 2018 is truly the best year. I’ve been waiting for Bridge of Clay ever since I read The Book Thief six years ago and I can’t believe that I’m finally going to get it in my hands. As for Jodi Picoult’s book- I will devour anything that she writes so I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us.

5. Biggest Disappointment?

24529123.jpg

I really thought that I’d love this book but it was super meh. There was some great elements like the diversity but the intensity  that I thought would accompany a book about a school shooting was sadly missing.

 

6.Biggest Surprise?

21969786.jpg

Though I love The Chaos Walking series, it took me awhile to finally get to More Than This. I don’t know but something about the summary hadn’t really drawn me but my god I was blown away!!! This is one of those books where you should go away knowing nothing because it’s just something you need to read.

7.Favorite New Author( Debut or New To You)?

8430243.jpg

So this year I read both The Girl With The Red  Balloon and The Spy With The Red Balloon and I loved both of them so much. I love reading about Jewish characters and in Spy they were Jewish and queer which is just so important to me!!! I can’t wait to read everything she comes out.

8. Newest Fictional Crush?

I don’t really get crushes on fictional characters. Pass!

9.Newest Favorite Character?

Matteo and Rufus!!! They’re precious cinnamon rolls and i love them so much!!!

10.Book That Made You Cry?

31180248.jpg

Even though I’m the most emotional person ever, I don’t really cry when reading books. But Leah on The Offbeat  had me in actual tears!! Might be because I read it from like 10 pm to Midnight so it might have been me being tired but there were so many scenes that made so emotional. It was such a good book!!!

 

11. Book That Made You Happy?

31246717.jpg

This book was so fun and gay and wonderful and it was the perfect summer read- I loved it so much!!

 

12. Prettiest Book You’ve Bought or Received This Year.

35069562.jpg

 

Any book with  Nick Robison’s face on it is a pretty book!!! I love my Love, Simon tie in edition so much.

13. What Books Do you Need To Read By The End of The Year.

32075671

I’ve been  dying to read The Hate U Give ever since it came out last year but I’ve just never gotten around to it. I have a hold at the library so I really can’t wait to read it!! Plus the movie is coming out soon, so I need to read it so I can watch it.

 

14.. Favorite Book Community Member?

Agh I never know what to answer because I love so many people. I pretty much love everyone who has a book blog/twitter/youtube. There that’s my answer!!

Love Simon Book Tag

img_4188-4

So I am absolutely obsessed with Love, Simon and I was thinking about some interesting posts I could do so I decided to combine my two loves to create Love Simon Book Tag. I’ve never created a tag before so bear with me.

Simon:  Name a book that is totally dorky and full of sunshine and beauty.

When Dimple Met Rishi. Dimple and Rishi are the biggest dorks and it’s such a beautiful and cute fluffy novel. Can Sandhya Menon please write me a beautiful love life??

Martin:Name s a book that is annoying and gross and you hate with all of your being.

13 Reasons Why. The book is trash, the author is trash, the show is trash. I hate wit all my might and I honestly don’t completely trust people who like it.

Leah: Name a book that was a little hard to get into, but you grew to love.

Red Rising. I’m that a big fan of fantasies so it was a tough start at first but once I really got into it I was hooked. That trilogy is amazing.

Blue:Name a book that’s very well written and thought provoking.

They Both Die At The End. This book was so so emotional and well written and made me think about so many different things. Adam Silvera did it again

 

Nick: Name a book that whose cover you’re obsessed with.

I just reread the Raven Cycle and those covers are fucking amazing so I’m going to say those. They’re so pretty holy shit

Abby:Name a book that everyone love including yourself.

Aristotle and Dante Discovers The Secrets of The Universe. This book is magic and gets me emotional everytime. It’s easily one of my top five favorite books. I’m so fucking excited for the movie. It’s going to be amazing

Oreos: Name a book with a perfect pair.

I can’t not say say Blue and Simon. They’re fucking amazing and beautiful and adorable and they’re the best literary couple of all time.

Ferris Wheel: Name a book  that makes you feel like one minute you’re on top of the world and the next you’re at rock bottom.

Leah On The Offbeat. This book made me feel so many emotions. I was crying, squealing and screaming. It was just a huge roller coaster of emotions

 

Creek Secrets: Name a book with awesome twists, turns, and revelations

The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. All of her books are equally amazing but this one had the best plot twist ever. I’m still reeling three years later.

I Wanna Dance With Somebody: What’s your go to music when reading?

I just have a bunch of music on my spotify which includes everything to David Bowie to High School Musical. My music taste is weird.

I Tag: So anybody who wants to do this tag can do it but I’m going to tag a couple of people.

Lia 

Anna

Nope Book Tag

So I realized that I haven’t done a book tag in awhile and I saw this tag on my feed and it seemed fun so I decided to do it! I mean who doesn’t like to talk about the books they don’t like?

NOPE. Ending: a book ending that made you go NOPE either in denial, rage or simply because the ending was crappy.

Mockingjay. That book was just so disappointing and a horrible way to end an otherwise great series. It was confusing and fast paced in the worst way and it just ruined the entire Hunger Games trilogy for me.

NOPE. Protagonist: a main character you dislike and drives you crazy.

Martin from Simon Vs the Homo Sapians Agenda. He’s literally the worst character ever and I hate him so much and he’s trash through and through.

Nope. Pairing: a “ship” you don’t support.

Any ship with Draco. I mean yeah I love Draco with all my heart and he’s a fascinating character but pairing him with Harry or Hermione or basically anybody from Hogwarts is so weird and makes me really uncomfortable. He bullied them consistently throughout the school years, shipping him with anybody would be such a weird dynamic.

NOPE. Plot Twist: a twist you didn’t see coming and liked.

The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. That plot twist still has me reeling two years later. It was amazing and so well done. Kate Morton really knows how to craft an amazing story

NOPE. Genre: a genre you will never read.

Erotica or like pure romance novels. Yeah nah I’m good. It’s just really not my thing and not something I could see myself ever reading

NOPE. Book Format: book formatting you hate and avoid buying until it comes out in a different edition.

I really don’t like hardbacks. I mean I do like them and they’re beautiful but they’re so much more expensive which is why I buy all my new books in paperback.

NOPE. Trope: a trope that makes you go NOPE.

Love triangles! They’re so frustrating and annoying and I hate them and it’s usually really obvious who the Mc will end up with.

NOPE. Recommendation: a book recommendation that is constantly pushed at you, that you simply refuse to read.

People don’t really recommend any books to me but anything by Sarah J Mass. I have 0 interest in any of her series and will never read anything she’s written. There are so many other books that I’d rather read.

NOPE. Cliche: a cliche or writing pet peeve that always makes you roll your eyes.

“She let out a breath she didn’t know she had been holding.” WHAT?! HOW?! it’s just so annoying and cliche and every time I see it in a book I cringe. It’s so annoying.

NOPE. Love Interest: the love interest that’s not worthy of being one.

I honestly can’t think of anything right now. I’m usually a pretty big fan of all love interests.

NOPE. Book: a book that shouldn’t have existed. a book that you just don’t like.

13 Reasons Why. This book is so problematic and I hate how everyone loves it and the TV show. It’s a horrible representation of mental illness and it just shouldn’t be a thing. Plus the author is trash so it’s just an overall shit show.

NOPE. Villain: a villain you would hate to cross.

Levanna from the Cinder series. God she’s the best villain ever but she’s terrifying.

NOPE. Death: a character death that still haunts you.

****’s from the Book Thief. I will never be over that death. It was so sad and like all of the deaths in that book were sad, but that was definitely the saddest.

NOPE. Author: an author you had a bad experience reading for and have decided to quit.

I read one book by Francesca Zappia called Made You Up and hated it so even though I know her latest book is supposed to be good, I have no interest in anything she’s written.

Fall Activites Book Tag

img_4188-4

I was tagged by dreamingthroughliterature       to do this  tag. Basically you just answer a bunch of questions that are fall related

Apple Picking

A book on your TBR that looks so delicious you can’t wait to take a bite out of it.

i have like a million books on my tbr so to chose just one is really hard, but i’m really excited to read Winter by Marissa Meyer and plus it has an apple on the cover so bonus points for that

Corn Maze

A book that’s so much fun to get lost in.

The most recent book  that I really was completely immersed was probably More Happy Than not. While it wasn’t a “fun” read, it was really good, and i guess it was kind of fun to feel sad??

Haunted Houses

A book that scared you silly.

The Evolution of Mara Dyer  wasn’t really scary but it did make me feel really weird, and i was really creeped out afterwards

Pumpkin Patch

The latest book you picked up (purchased).

I  mostly get my books from  my library, so umm I got Dangerous Girls and Winter yesterday. Really excited to read it!

Scenic Drives

A book that is lyrically beautiful.

I really can’t talk about any other book other than the book thief. Each word is carefully chosen, and every line has something special to it.

Pumpkin Carving

A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind carving up.

Made You Up by Francesca Zappia. It was just really offensive and a horrible portrayal of schizophrenia ,to top it off it made so sense and was super confusing. Only good thing going for it is the cover

Drinking Apple Cider

A sweet book to curl up under the covers with.

Fangirl is one of those books that I always come back to, it’s a book that I read when I’m sad, and I just really love it.

Jumping in a Leaf Pile

A book that reminds you of your childhood.

Nancy Drew : ) I love Nancy Drew so much, they’re the books that I most strongly associate with my childhood, and I couldn’t imagine my life without them

Scary Movie Night

Your favorite spooky read.

I don’t read spooky books because I’m a scaredy cat but The Graveyard book by Neil Gaiman was enjoyable
