If you’ve read my previous posts of this kind (2016, 2017, 2018), you already know how it goes:
- This is a list of books I read in 2019; not all of them came out that year (but most did);
- The books are listed in the order in which I’ve reviewed them, not by how much I loved them (I’ve also included their release dates according to Amazon);
- I’m sticking to one book per author, but I reserve the right to include in the HONORABLE MENTIONS another work by an author who is present in my FELL IN LOVE WITH section.
Without further ado, here are the seven books I FELL IN LOVE WITH in 2019, followed by five HONORABLE MENTIONS. We start off with Continue reading

2019 is upon us, but 2018 is not forgotten. And more specifically: the books I read are not (entirely) forgotten.
Today I’m going to share with you the ones that left the biggest impression on me: my favorites and some honorable mentions. There are a couple of rules to my lists though:
- These are books that I’ve read in 2018, but didn’t necessarily come out that year (most did though).
- Only one book per author per list, however, I will include one of the authors in both lists. If you follow my reviews, I’m sure you can guess which author will be present in both places, although I’ve reviewed so many of her books (seven, actually) this year, that you might not be able to guess which two titles are going to be featured into this post.
And now, in the order in which I’ve posted my reviews, starting with the oldest one…

In January I posted eight reviews. Eight! It’s the most reviews I’ve ever uploaded in a single month. With February being the month of love, I’ve decided to review one of my favorite books (it’s by Garrett Leigh) and I also have three ARCs which means that you can expect four reviews this month. So which are the books?
In the order they’ll be reviewed in…

Themes & Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Native American Mythology

There are a lot of books I’d like to read in 2018, but I’ve narrowed them down to thirteen to share with you. Before I tell you which they are, a few disclaimers:
- This isn’t a Top 13; the books are in no particular order.
- While some of these books are coming out this year (I’ve mentioned which), there are some that are older.
- Some of the new releases don’t have covers, titles or synopsis yet. In the case of the unknown titles, I’ll just write which series the book is from and the number it’s supposed to be; as for the About (synopsis), I’ll just explain what the series is about.
- I’ve divided the books in the following categories: Fiction Novels (8), Guides (3), and Manga/Graphic Novels (2).
Let’s start with…
