Well we made it through 2020 so here’s to hoping that this year is better. However I did read some incredible books this year.
This month I read some amazing and some not so great books. Here’s what I read:
A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir – A reread in preparation for Sky! My review is here
Hijab and Red Lipstick by Yousra Imran – I really hated this book, it was so problematic. You can read my thoughts here
The Once and Future Queen by Clara O’Connar – I did not enjoy this and ended up dnfing
The Cousins by Karen McManus – I enjoyed this and did not see that ending coming
The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan – I loved this book so much more on my reread and I think this trilogy deserves more love.
We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal – Another reread in preparation for the sequel and I just love the zumra so much. My review is here
Make Up Break Up by Lily Menon – I was so disappointed by this I ended up dnfing. I wish I had enjoyed this as I love her YA books.
We Free the Stars by Hafsah Faizal – This book lives in my head rent free and I am still not over how much I loved this book and just how incredible the character arcs were especially Nasir and Altair’s arc and character development. My review will be up soon!
The Black Khan by Ausma Zehanat Khan – This was quite different to The Bloodprint as it was set in two locations as opposed to the travelling the characters did in the first book but I still loved it so much. My review will be up soon.
A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir – This book is pure pain but I loved it so much. Laia’s arc is one of my favourite character arcs I have ever read. I love her so much. My review will be up soon!
Plain Bad Heroines by Emily Danforth – Unfortunately I just didn’t enjoy this writing style and couldn’t get into the story at all I ended up dnfing.
Winters Orbit by Everina Maxwell – I really enjoyed this book and especially loved the two main characters. My full review is here
