1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2021
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
I was super hesitant to read this, I really wasn’t a fan of the author’s first book. This has entirely changed my mind. I loved every moment!
Check out my review here.
2. Best sequel you’ve read so far in 2021
I haven’t read a lot of sequels this year… I’ll go with Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert. It was SO cute. It was such an enjoyable experience. Check out my review here.
3. New release you haven’t read yet, but want to.
Meet Cute Diary by Emery Lee
4. Most anticipated release for the second half of the year.
Cytonic by Brandon Sanderson
I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS!! The ending to Starsight almost killed me. Biggest cliffhanger ever. I am so excited to get back to this world and characters!
My reviews for Skyward and Starsight
5. Biggest disappointment.
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
Boy, oh boy, did this disappoint. I really cannot understand the hype around this book. The ideas and concepts – amazing. The execution – not good. I didn’t enjoy it at all. Fell completely flat for me.
Full review here.
6. Biggest surprise.
The Girls I’ve Been by Tess Sharpe
This was just so good. The premise sounded interesting, but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. Review here.
7. Favourite new author. (Debut or new to you)
After reading Spin the Dawn, I need to read everything else by Elizabeth Lim. I LOVED it!
8. Newest fictional crush.
Nathaniel from Sorcery of Thorns. *swoon*
9. Newest favourite character.
Jordan and Declan from The Dreamer Trilogy by Maggie Stiefvater
I don’t want to spoil the books, so I won’t say too much. I just loved Jordan and Declan!! Declan was a huge surprise, I didn’t like him in TRC.
10. Book that made you cry.
I haven’t had an emotional read this year yet…
11. Book that made you happy.
Instant Karma by Marissa Meyer
12. Most beautiful book you’ve bought so far this year (or received)

The UK paperback of this, my goodness. I am obsessed.
