Favourite Books Of The Year (2018)

As it is now 2019 I think it is time to share my favourite books of 2019. I read over 120 books last year, 125 to be exact so there is a lot to choose from so I will be doing a top 10 with 7 honourable mentions so let's get started...

Honourable Mentions:

Obsidio (The Illuminae Files, #3)And the Ocean Was Our Sky

Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the WorldHeartstopper: Volume One (Heartstopper, #1)

Purple Hearts (The Front Lines #3)To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)

Number 10: Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt 

TheatricalTheatrical was just so fun. I feel in love with everything in the book and loved the romance. I really enjoyed the whole idea of going backstage in the theatre so I would definitely recommend. 

Number 9: Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices, #2)
I am more than happy to say that I was a massive fan of Lady Midnight but there was something about Lord of Shadows that I devoured and loved. That ending also broke me so I hope that I can read Queen of Air And Darkness in 2019.  

Number 8: Are We All Lemmings And Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne 

Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes?I did really enjoy this book and thought that it was an interesting look at mental illness. I love Holly Bourne anyway so of course, I was going to love this book. I want everyone to read this and every single one of Holly's books.

Number 7: Ascension by Victor Dixen 

Ascension (Phobos, #1)I devoured this book in one sitting. It was a perfect blend of sci-fi, thriller and romance and I loved every second of it. I also read the second book in this series and can't wait for the Collison!

Number 6: Giant Days by Non Pratt

Giant Days
There is just so much to love about this book and I thought that Non captured the humour and the characters of the series so well. I also loved the fact that it was set at university and we need more books set here!

Number 5: Floored by Various Authors

FlooredFloored was a book that I was highly anticipating this year and it so delivered. I just love everything about the story and the characters and the friendship just everything. 

Number 4: Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

Turtles All the Way Down
I love John Green and always have so I was saving this until I was really and I didn't want to wait for the next one again. I feel like this was his most personable story and I really loved every single page.

Number 3: I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman 

I Was Born for This
I love Alice's book all the time so of course, when I knew that I Was Born For This was going to be released I knew I was going to love it. I was right I adored the characters and the story and Alice just knows how to write a YA book.

Number 2: The Gentlemen's Guide To Vice And Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings, #1)
I loved this book so much! On reflection, there was no way that I couldn't include this book on my list. Ever since I finished the book I haven't stopped thinking about it. I loved Monty and Percy and every single character. The character development I the book was so great. I just loved it!

Number 1: The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth

The Miseducation of Cameron Post
This book guys. This book. It's just so good. Like so good. I loved Cameron as a character and the writing of this book was just so good. It was the best and I loved reading it. The plot of this book is also really important and I loved reading it. It is definitely a new favourite!

So there are my favourites!

See you soon,

On Turning 22

So on Wednesday (today when this goes up) I will be 22. *is currently listening to 22 by Taylor Swift* Obviously. The thing about turning 22 is the fact that you have just turned 21. I say just it was a whole year ago. 21 which has so many meanings behind it which is what I mentioned in my post last year so turning 22 feels kind of meh.21 felt to me last year as to be some big thing like my whole life was going to change. I was graduating from university after so much in my life felt like it was going to change.But the thing is it didn't.I stayed for a Masters in History. At the same university with people that I have know for some year and new ones and of course the people the people that graduated last year ain't there anymore and I do miss them. Things are still kind of the same.Turning 22 feels like it's in the middle. It's not special. It doesn't hold special meaning. It's just itself. This is how I feel like 2019.2019 is such a middling year for me. I'…

Book Review: Ascension by Victor Dixen

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *

Title: Ascension Author: Victor Dixen Publisher: Hot Key Books Source: Readers First Rating: 5/5 stars

Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Leonor, an 18 year old orphan, is one of the chosen ones. 
She has signed up for glory.
She has signed up for love.
She has signed up for a one-way ticket.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…
