Best Books I Read This Spring | 2019


Hey Guys!
Today I’m going to be talking about the best books I read this spring.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been reading any really good books. This is so far hasn’t been successful in making many new favourites. I’ve only had two 5-Star reads this year. Both read in Spring.  In my seasonal favourites, I only include 4 + 5-star reads, so this season I only have a top 3. 

1) Cress by Marissa Meyer
2) Winter by Marissa Meyer

I’d honestly put them both at first place since they’re the only 5 star reads I’ve had this year! I really did love them. I listened to them on audiobook, they were such a joy to listen to. The narrator did a really good job of keeping me engaged and invested. I highly recommend the series but especially the audiobooks!

I have reviews for these two here: Cress | Winter

3) Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I really enjoyed this book, it was a solid 4 Star read for me. I especially love The Darkling, I am officially trash for him. It took me years to read this series but I finally did it. However, since the last two books aren’t on this list you can tell they weren’t my favourite. I thought Shadow and Bone was a great start to what I thought would be a new favourite series but the next books just get progressively worse.

I’ll have reviews up for the whole trilogy very soon!

Since my list is pretty scarce I wanted to add some honourable mentions, books I enjoyed not my favourite but deserve some recognition!

1) One Word Kill by Mark Lawerence (Review here)

BEST Books I Read This Autumn!


Hey guys!
I’m back with a seasonal favourites post! After every season I pick my top 5 favourites to share. I meant to do this earlier this month but I completely forgot about it. Better late than never!
This list is in no particular order, except that #1 is my number one favourite, the rest aren’t ranked.


5) Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

This book took me absolutely ages to read because of starting university but still I loved it! Laini Taylor’s writing is just beautiful. I loved the characters and the story, it was slow but worth it!

4) Soulbinder by Sebastien De Castell

2018-12-16 12.02.47 1.jpg

Released this autumn, the fourth book in the Spellslinger series, which I discovered this year. I am loving this series so much! The first book remains my favourite but this was such a good read too! I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.
Highly recommend this series!

3) Vicious by V.E. Schwab

2018-12-16 12.02.51 1.jpg

I was lucky enough to be sent the second book, Vengeful, so obviously, I had to read Vicious first. I’d never read any V.E. Schwab before but this made me love her writing! The characters were so cool and interesting, I love the x-men vibes, the plot was well executed. It was just perfection.

2) Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

An audiobook! I haven’t listened to many recently but when this became available at my library I just had to pick it up. I’m so glad I did because it is such an amazing book. I loved hearing all the stories and read by Neil himself! It was such a great experience for me and made my train journeys much more bearable!

 And finally, THE best book I read this autumn




1) Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas

2018-12-16 12.02.42 1.jpg

Is this really a surprise? Probably not. I’m a huge SJM fan and this is her best book yet. It was actual perfection. I loved every moment, I laughed and I cried. It was an absolutely amazing conclusion to a great series. It is now one of my favourite books of all time and I could happily reread it, right now.
