So here are some of my fav reads of this year from Jan to June to my make my life easier since there is so many choices. I’ll try to do a top 10ish
1. A court of mist and fury by Sarah j Maas
This book has the romance down perfect even if makes a old person in last book look like a total ahole. But amazing fantasy the world building. This will be in my top all time fav reads.
2. A shadow bright and burning by Jessica cluess
Debut author comes up with amazing magic and sorcers some what not fully to Harry Potter and loved the gang of this book challenging to beat these mystical creatures that has plagued them. Now onto the hard parts of figuring my next few books.
3. Tell me three things by Julie buxbaum
This cute contempory has you guessing who her secret admirer a new girl who just moved and knows no one and gets a email but some nobody trying help the new girl way thru school. Has you guessing whole time who it is and it’s very adorable simular but this is better to ps I like you which was out further in the year.
4.walk in the sun
Also another adorable contemp out from the country. I don’t know what it is but I love country contemps. But starts off a girl with family has to hire extra help on the farm and the guy is just into town looking for work on his voyage for Europe can some one get in the way of making this trip you gotta find out but besides work the bickering is sooo funny and cute
5. The lovely reckless by kami Garcia
Now let’s go the other way now ya hear? This book deals with things as kami puts it the worst area of where she grew up. This romance has action with street racing and adrenaline pumping plus the guy in the book is a bad ass while the girl is exact opposite a little rich girl who has a bad turn of events after someone died. Can they both help each other out when the time gets tough? One of the books i prey gets a second book to the series and I bug kami and met her editor a couple of times thru the year given I’m in NYC we need a book 2. So make that a wish please.
6. The unexpected everything by Morgan matson
Going into this book I didn’t know any thing of this author what she wrote, my friend had gifted me many arcs and this was one and a few others on bookcon app were like lucky so I’m like hmm it’s very liked author let me give a try and glad I did. Follows a girl who always been in spotlight since her dad is a senator. But she has her life all planned out till her dad gets caught in a scandal and all her things planned said can’t come to this school program and all. So she is stuck and has to find a job (ends up being a great job by the way one Iv done for years the cover gives you hints) on the way she meets a guy he is dorky and adorable but slightly closed off from something maybe him self he is famous who knows ;).
Boy as can see my main genra is contemp and I love them but I’ll see if I have some more fantasy’s to help.
7.lying out loud by kody keplinger
This book is its own book but it companions the duff which 2015 the duff was my fav read for contemp so when read this oh my stars i loved it as well and she makes this town amazing and so worth it if you loved the duff. But the duff in my oppion is better.
8.what light by jay Asher
Another book going into had no idea who the author was but loved the cover and was a Christmas contemp. Yup I was reading a Christmas book in June we were on a heat wave of 95 so I bought some rafts and we have a lake by my house so read the whole book in middle of the lake. Yes I did endanger the book but no books got destroyed in the filming of this X). A cute story with a person who has a bad reputation and no one gives the guy a chance except this girl who owns a tree farm well you get idea and learn the true him caring and All, only thing didnt like was the ending.
Should do 10 but rest were I didn’t love them fully but I enjoyed them so I’ll give some shout outs.
Ivory and bone by Julie Eshbaugh
I’m not big all the time on historical fiction but this book goes way back to almost cave man days but shows besides fights how tribes try to co exist with each other and get romances brewing. But maybe one tribe isn’t who think it is. Plus can say Julie is so nice met her couple of times and for bookit con I bought VIP so can choose who want to eat with and I sat with Julie and we talked for hours. So I’m looking for book 2.
Swimming alone by Nina Mansfield
This book was a short read that my friend sent me since was part of her small small indie house in Midwest and can say this book ws enjoyable for the summer time, people keep dieing from a beach goer murder can these cases be solved by none other beach goer stuck on an island with her aunt. Fast fast read my shortest book but it has a twist that got me.
Mercy of the sky: the story of the tornado
This book is half fictional half legit of people that happened to people of Tuscaloosa as the tornado ripped thru town with the days leading up to it, during and after affects. Using first hand encounters, the subjects in the story from text messages to there facebook And Twitter posts/ phone calls. Plus more in details of the outbreak and what goes on with James Spanns assistant and James spann himself the very famous very amazing meterlogist from abc 33/40 of Birmingham Alabama. Besides a ya reader I’m a huge weather nut. Espcially tornado’s, snowstorms, hail and lighting. Sooo trust me please read this even though a tad sad.
Last few just mentioning that’s it I enjoyed and last of my mentions worth a read
