Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I discovered this book when I stumbled across Bardugo’s tour announcement for it. I had recently graduated from college, moved to a large city, and honestly hadn’t read for fun in months. This book immediately stuck out to me so I went to her Q&A event at the bookstore, bought the book, and promptly devoured it because it was amazing! I hadn’t read anything like it before but instantly wanted more. It’s still a favorite of mine and even though I’ve seen other books popping up with similar plots or character groupings, nothing compares to this one.
Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness
This series really took me on a ride. The first book was exciting, new, occasionally slow and confusing as you puzzle out this strange new world…but the sequel absolutely blew my mind and the trilogy ending was chock full of FEELS. I was crying and cheering and destroyed by the end of it and I hadn’t had a reaction like that to a book ever before. Weirdly enough it’s one of the memories that sticks out for that year of college haha.
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
The writing in this book is simply gorgeous and I live for Mr. Kindly. Admittedly it was a bit slow to grow on me but by the end my head was spinning from the action, the epic ending, and my excitement for the sequel! Which segues to the next question…
Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff
While the first book didn’t steal my soul at first, the more I pondered on it the more my heart caught up to my brain and finally I was hooked and I anxiously await the arrival of my copy. I have no idea what to expect (except for the few reviews I’ve read here in the blogosphere) but I’m pretty excited for it.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
This whole series will always have a place in my heart probably due to the fact that I grew up with them. I had to wait for each book to be published, for each movie to be released, and I grew up alongside these characters all the way up through high school. My favorite book in the series is a tie between this one and Prisoner of Azkaban, but this one is the one I choose when I need to feel better. I either crack open the book or turn on the movie and, I dunno, I start to feel better somehow.
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
This was a book I bought on a whim back in college and I was so surprised by how much I loved it. It also helped that it was winter and I read it curled up under a warm knitted blanket with a mug of hot cider. When I think Fall I think of this book. It takes place in November and I’ve even made the book’s November Cakes for Thanksgiving before!
Thanks for letting me participate!
I tag anyone else who loves the season of Fall the most!
