Half Bad by Sally Green

This is a YA Diver Fantasy and the whole series was really good! I listened to this trilogy on audiobook, which I highly recommend. As I said this series is diverse as it has LGBT Main Character and Characters which is so good!

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Do I really need to explain this?

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

I don’t think I really need to explain this one either, let’s be real! But of course, this is a super important book right now!

Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton

This is the best end of a trilogy ever. I absolutely adore this series so much! The characters are amazing, the world is super interesting and this book was ridiculous but epic and I absolutely loved it!

The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

This is a fun, diverse historical fiction. I absolutely love this book. The characters are amazing and I specifically enjoyed Felicity, so I am so excited for book 2 which is a companion from Felicity’s POV.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

This i a YA Contemporary Cinderella retelling. Even though I am not generally a contemporary fan I did really enjoy this. I loved the fandom side of things and loved all the little references to Cinderella throughout. It was super fun.

Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

THIS BOOK!! I’m pretty sure this is my favourite book in The Illuminae Files. The Illuminae Files is in my Top 5 favourite series and I adored Gemina! I love the character we get to meet in this one and the chaos that happens throughout! I just love this series so much!

Graevale by Lynette Noni

Graevale is the 4th book in The Medoran Chronicles series which is my second favourite series of all time and it’s not even all out yet! This world is absolutely amazing, the characters are spot on, the friendship is the best I have seen since Harry, Ron & Hermione. I absolutely adore this series and everything about it!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay by J.K. Rowling

Do I need to explain this?

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander

Or this one?

Finding Wonders by Jeannine Atkins

This book has 3 stories about 3 women that make scientific discoveries throughout history. This book is written in verse and this was actually my first time reading in verse. I personally do not like poetry but I really enjoyed this book. I also loved the background on the discoveries made. It was super interesting.

Frostfire by Amanda Hocking

This is the first book in the Kanin Chronicles. The Kanin chronicles is the companion series to the Trylle Trilogy. I really enjoyed these books but it’s been a long time since I read it.

There is only 2 for this month. For the most part, the books starting with E were either meh or I didn’t like at all. But here are the 2 books that I have read and loved that start with E.

Escape from Mr Lemoncello’s Library by Chris Grabenstein

This is the first book in the Mr Lemoncello’s Library series. This is a fun, amusing and action-filled middle-grade book. This is full of books, libraries, knowledge & famous new & historical people. Overall it is just super fun and I loved listening to the series on audiobook! Highly recommend.

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

This is the first book in the Wayward Children’s series and while this book is not my favourite in the series I still really enjoyed it. It is a mystery book and I love a good mystery. I also love the range of diversity we saw in these characters.

Argh, I’m hopeless at remembering to post these! This is the one that should have gone up on Saturday!

For this challenge, every week you make a post talking about the best books you’ve read and the ones you are keen for on your TBR that start with a specific letter.
So this week I will be doing the letter C. I will not be including the word ‘The’ as the first word.

I don’t have as many books for C that I love as I have for A & B.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

This is the first book in The Lunar Chronicles. While there are a couple things in this series that I don’t love, for the most part, I did really enjoy them. They are fun and action-packed. Also, the world is very well developed and vivid.

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

This is the amazing sequel to Six of Crows! These books are intense, action-packed and very enjoyable to read. The characters are very well developed and so is the world. Though I do recommend reading at least the first book in the Grisha Trilogy before starting Six of Crows as the magic system isn’t explained in Six of Crows at all, so that could be found confusing. I personally read in this order Shadow & Bone, Six of Crows, Siege and Storm, Ruin and Rising & Crooked Kingdom.

Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire

This is the 3rd book in the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire. I can’t talk about this one too much as it’s the 3rd book but this series is just so interesting and book 3 is my favourite. The Wayward Children Series is about children that return to the real world after travelling into a portal fantasy world (e.g. Alice In Wonderland & Narnia). These are companion books, so I will briefly talk about how they are related. Firstly, book 1, Every Heart A Doorway is set in the real world at a ‘school’ for the children that return to the real world after going to their portal world. This book is more of a murder mystery than anything else. Book 2, Down Among the Sticks and Bones follows two characters from Book 1 and it takes place before Book 1 while these characters were in their world. Book 3 follows the daughter of a character from Book 1. I loved Book 3 the most because it was more adventurous and we get to experience more than just the one world or the real world.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I love World War II Historical Fiction books and this is no exception. I love how unique this book is. Firstly it is narrated by death, which makes for a really unique reading experience. Also that we follow a young girl makes for an interesting experience too as most World War II books I’ve read are from people in there late teens or adults. This book is upsetting and powerful and I loved it. I really need to reread this one!

Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Young Adult Fantasy with Dragons? Yes, please! This book does not have a tonne of plot so it feels more character driven. The world is really interesting and this book really builds up for book 2 and I can’t wait for book 2 which I have already pre-ordered!

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

This is book 3 in The Raven Cycle series but I don’t think I really need to explain this series. I love this whole series! I don’t really know which book is my favourite out of this series as I love them all but Blue Lily, Lily Blue would be one of the top ones I think.

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

This is an interesting dystopian book. The only thing I don’t like in this book was the romance, I enjoyed the main character and the plot and world are really interesting! It’s been a while since I read this and I want to reread it as I know I really enjoyed it but I can’t remember enough of it. So I am hoping to reread this book and book 2, The Mime Order and then I can finally continue onto The Song Rising. However, I don’t want to just yet as there are still 4 books to come out in this series, the next one is set to release next year and the last book, book 7 in 2021.

Beyond the Night by Alexandra Bracken

This is a novella in The Darkest Minds series. This one comes between In the Afterlight & The Darkest Legacy. I really enjoyed this little extra info and this one builds on what we find out in the novella Sparks Rise which comes between Never Fade & In the Afterlight. I really enjoyed this series so I love this extra little bit we get!

A Closed and Common Orbit by Becky Chambers
This is the second book in the Wayfarer’s series! Which is one of my new favourite series! This is an Adult Sci-Fi series and the books are all companion novels. The books are very character driven and have a very interesting and diverse cast of characters. There are tonnes of unique ‘alien’ species to meet in this book and the world is extremely vivid! I absolutely love this series and A Closed and Common Orbit is my second fave in the series.

Armada by Ernest Cline
Armada is another Sci-Fi book but this one is YA. Armada is a heavily video game based book and it was just so interesting, I loved the characters, the world and the action of this book! Highly recommend if you like Ernest Cline’s other series, Ready Player One.

Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody
This one is a new favourite having only read it last month. I read Daughter of the Burning City, Amanda Foody’s debut and LOVED it. So as soon as this was announced I was extremely excited! I was not disappointed! This book has an interesting world with amazing characters and tonnes of twists and turns! Can’t wait for book 2.

A Tale of Two Murders by Heather Redmond
Another new favourite, this one I read this month. This is a historical murder mystery loosely based on A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. In this book, we also have a young Charles Dickens as the main character. He is working as a journalist at a local paper when a weird death occurs and he doesn’t believe it to be natural causes and sets out to solve the crime. This is a really good Murder Mystery, I literally had no idea who the murderer was until Dickens unveiled them.

Akarnae by Lynette Noni
This book!! This was the book that started my love for my number 2 favourite series of all time! The Medoran Chronicles is only second to Harry Potter on my top 4 favourites series ever! This world, these characters, the friendship, the plot, everything about this book is amazing and I love it.

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
This book started my love for reading Murder Mysteries. I have watched many TV Shows and movies that are adapted from Agatha Christies book but this was the first one I read and I loved it! So I just kept reading Agatha Christie books!
