7 Books I Read and Fell in Love with in 2019

If you’ve read my previous posts of this kind (2016, 2017, 2018), you already know how it goes:

  1. This is a list of books I read in 2019; not all of them came out that year (but most did);
  2. 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);
  3. 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.

That’s it.

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

13 Books I’m Looking Forward to Reading in 2018

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:

  1. This isn’t a Top 13; the books are in no particular order.
  2. While some of these books are coming out this year (I’ve mentioned which), there are some that are older.
  3. 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.
  4. I’ve divided the books in the following categories: Fiction Novels (8), Guides (3), and Manga/Graphic Novels (2).

Let’s start with…

1. The Alienist – Dr. Lazlo Kreizler, Book 1

The Alienist - Dr. Lazlo Kreizler, Book 1 by Caleb Carr

5 Books I Want to Buy Before the End of the Year

5 Books I Want to Buy (before the end of the year)

In case you haven’t figured it out by all the reviews I post on this blog: I love reading.

Shocker, I know.

If I were to let myself go and buy every book I wanted, I’d be broke in a week, probably even sooner. However, there are some books I desire more than others and since I think they’d be amazing reads, I decided to share them with you. This list is in no particular order and I tried to go for a bit of diversity so you’ll see three Fiction novels, a manga and a writing guide here, all of them by different authors.

Let’s start with the Fiction novels Continue reading
