Happy Friday bookish people! My goodness the end of the year has arrived very quickly and it is time to do my yearly wrap up. For this year I am going to show a picture of the book cover of every book I have read this year all broken down into categories determined by the star rating I gave the book.
overall, this year I have only managed to read 49 books, compared to over 100 last year.
This year I read no books that I disliked so much that I gave them one star, it was close but I eventually decided the books in the two star category are:
In my 3 star category are:
4 star ratings
and finally… my two books I read this year that I rated five stars are…..
Happy Friday bookish people! Today I am bringing you an Easter themed book tag that I found on My Reading Escape.wordpress.com
I hope you will all have a wonderful Easter weekend with however you will be spending it, I will probably be spending mine eating a lot of chocolate and using my new coffee maker.
1. Easter Egg: Book that feels like a hidden gem
I have to choose The Lady in the Tower by Marie Louise Jenson for this one because it is a wonderful book that I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone else talk about
2. Bloom: Debut Novel You Loved:
I chose The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant for this book because I received it in an Illumicrate box and I read it in one sitting. It is a retelling of Les Miserables set in a beautifully described France.
3. Chocolate Bunny: Book so good you didn’t want it to end
I chose Caraval because it is one of my favourite books and as the prompt says, I didn’t want it put it down! This series is so magical I wanted to keep reading it for as long as I could.
4. Cheap, Cheap, Cheap: Book you bought for super cheap:
I actually was given this book for free by a really lovely bookseller, I was given a few of the little world book day books and this was one of them, I have already read it.
5. Jelly bean: Book you thought was sweet:
This book has a lot of lovely, sweet themes so Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell was the first book I thought of for this prompt.
6. Easter Basket: Filled with many surprises:
For this one I am choosing the entire A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J Maas because although I have only read the first book, I have heard that there are many surprises throughout this series and I am excited to read them.
7. Rabbits: Books you wish would multiply (have a sequel):
I chose House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A Craig because ever since finishing it I really wished there had been a sequel, I just felt there were questions left unanswered.
8. Hunt: Book that was hard to get hold of:
I had to look everywhere for this book, there was only one bookshop that had it and the drive was over an hour, then when we got there I forgot to look for this book (I know, I couldn’t believe I did this either) and so I had to order it.
So that’s the end of this Easter book tag! I hope you all enjoyed it!
