WHAT IS THE BEST BOOK THAT YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2019?
I have two! Cress by Marissa Meyer & The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
WHAT IS THE BEST SEQUEL YOU’VE READ SO FAR IN 2019?
Basically all of the sequels to Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I read all of The Lunar Chronicles this year and I LOVED all of them.
IS THERE A NEW RELEASE THAT YOU HAVEN’T READ YET BUT ARE REALLY EXCITED FOR?
Limited Wish by Mark Lawrence
I really enjoyed One Word Kill, I think the series has potential so I cannot wait to see where it goes!
WHAT IS YOUR MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE FOR THE SECOND HALF OF 2019?
I have so many!! But the one I’m probably excited for the most is The Burning White by Brent Weeks
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT SO FAR?
The Wicked King by Holly Black + The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Both are ridiculously overhyped and didn’t live up to it for me.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SURPRISE SO FAR?
Tie between Cinder by Marissa Meyer + The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
I put off reading TLC for years because I thought sci-fi fairytale retellings sounded odd and I thought I wouldn’t like it. BOY was I wrong.
The Flatshare isn’t my usual genre – Adult-contemporary/romance but I ended up loving it. Such a great, quick read – perfect for summer!
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE NEW TO YOU DEBUT AUTHOR?
Guess it’s going to have to be Beth O’Leary – haven’t read many debut authors yet this year.
WHO IS YOUR NEWEST FAVOURITE CHARACTER FROM THIS YEAR?
CARSWELL THORNE!! and Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles. Oh my god, I just love them.
Honourable mentions: The Darkling & Nikolai from the Shadow and Bone trilogy
WHAT IS A BOOK THAT MADE YOU CRY?
I don’t think any have made me cry this year yet…
WHAT IS A BOOK THAT MADE YOU HAPPY?
I’m going to not repeat myself since I’m gushing about the same few books. So, I’m going with: Twice Magic by Cressida Cowell (audiobook)
I listened to this while I will ill in bed with the flu and it cheered me up so much. David Tennant is the narrator and he is AMAZING. I love this middle-grade series – cannot wait for the next one!
WHAT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BOOK YOU’VE READ SO FAR THIS YEAR?
I’m guessing this is to do with the cover?
Probably the Shadow and Bone trilogy – the new covers. They’re so stunning.
Shame the last two weren’t as good as their covers!
