This stack are of all the books I've read this year so far (not included is an ebook). I'm currently reading my 18th book for the year 😄 Despite starting full time study in February and sometimes not even reading on weekends, I'm actually doing better than this time last year in my reading progress! That's a win haha 👌

I'm so happy with all the books I read this year. I set myself a goal to read 30 books and I ended up reading 42 🙌 That's 22 books more than I read last year so I am pretty proud of myself 😄 I read 39 physical books and 3 ebooks! The ebooks were from authors and out of the 39 physical books (old and new) only one was a reread 😊 I hope you all had a great reading year too!

Harry looked up at the giant. He meant to say thank you, but the words got lost on the way to his mouth, and what he said instead was, 'Who are you?'
The giant chuckled.

Obsidio | Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff
post image
Pickpick

I didn't want this series to end so I put off reading the last book for ages. I finally read Obsidio recently and it was just as amazing as Illuminae and Gemina. It was another epic rollercoaster ride full of emotions, action and twists.

I still love the awesome epistolary format and badass characters and I thought the ending of this incredible series was satisfying.

'Harry looked eagerly inside the envelope. There was another piece of parchment in there. He read it through quickly and felt suddenly as warm and contented as though he'd swallowed a bottle of hot Butterbeer in one go.

I, Sirius Black, Harry Potter's godfather, hereby give him permission to visit Hogsmeade at weekends.'

Time Crawlers is a collection of six short stories and I really enjoyed them. It was a gripping and fun book to read. I found the science stuff, different characters and style of each story very interesting. It is perfect for fans of science fiction.

Definitely recommend this book and I will be keeping an eye out on future books by this author.

Vampires ✔ Witches ✔ Hunters ✔

I haven't read a vampire book in so long and this one was just awesome! It was a very different take on the usual vampire story and it had me hooked. It was an interesting, fun and intense read. I liked the characters, the setting and with the twist at the end I am definitely keen to see what the author comes up with next 😄
