Hello, hello, dear friends! Happy
late New Year!
So, so. I’ve decided to list the books I’ve read so far this year for my blog post today. I haven’t seen anyone else do this, but, well… I’m out of ideas.
SO HERE YOU GO. 😀
1, 2, and 3- Out of Time trilogy by Nadine Brandes
I re-read all of the Out of Time books! I received the first one, A Time to Die, for Christmas and decided that I needed to read the rest of the series, so two kind folks (thank you, Abi and Karis!) lent me the second and third books. 😀 All of them were f a n t a s t i c and I’m definitely keeping a lookout for a sale on the second and third for myself.
Aren’t the covers gorgeous?
4- Martin Hospitality by Abigayle Claire
I also wanted to re-read Martin Hospitality, so I did. I’ve heard a lot of people say the pacing of the story could be improved, and I could definitely see that on my second time through. 🙂 It was still so good though, and I’m looking forward to Martin Crossroads and what it brings us.
By the way, I did start this in very late December, but I finished it in 2019. So it kind of doesn’t count, but I’m including it anyway. xD
5- Eagle Eyes by Tammy Lash
Guys. This short story is SO BEAUTIFUL. *huggles* Not to mention the front cover is amazing and the back cover is… breathtaking. One of my most favorite covers of all time.
6- As Stars Shine by Aria Hoppe
This short story / very mini novella was really sweet! It had a really interesting premise and definitely kept my attention while I was reading it.
7- Stars and Soul by Rosalie Valentine
Hmm… I’m not quite sure what to think of this one. I’m generally not a huge fan of collections of story in one book because I find it really hard to switch from one short story to the next. I definitely found this one to be a case with that. However, the short stories were still good, and I’d certainly pick up more by this author.
8- Retrieve by Sarah Addison-Fox
Okay, I really didn’t know what to expect with Retrieve, since I didn’t really love one of Ms. Addison-Fox’s other books (Disowned). But seriously, it surprised so much! I really, really did end up liking this book quite a bit- you can read my full review here. 🙂
9- Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I started this series in late December after watching the first movie, and ended in 2019 with Mockingjay. And wow, was it good. I’m still processing all the feeeeeeeeelings that came with reading this series, and currently, all I’m thinking is “how dare they do this to Peeta and Katniss.” 😦
And that’s it for this post! I know the idea for this post is a little unusual, but I hope you enjoyed it!
Now, tell me… what books have YOU read so far this year? What books are you looking forward to reading this year?
Thanks for reading! ❤
