Cress by Marissa Meyer
Cress is my fav character from The Lunar Chronicles and I enjoyed this book sooooo much. I loved watching her transform from the shy, awkward girl into someone who is brave and is ready to do what needs to be done.
Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
No words can describe how much I adored this book. It was my first audiobook and I loved the experience so much that now I’m currently listening to The Wrath and the Dawn! But anyway this book is so bloody good you HAVE to read it. The writing and the characters and the story asdfghjkl;
When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare
I’m a sucker for a good romance and this book is so adorable and the hero is so swoony and the heroine is so kickass and it’s.freaking.brilliant.
The Weight of Feathers by Anna-Marie McLamore
The imagery in this book was topnotch. The characters were real. The world was amazing. There was magic. Are you tired of me speaking in chopped sentences yet.
Kanata Kara by Kyoko Hikawa
I finished the 14 volumes in 2 days. I used to stay awake at night thinking about it and fangirling over the characters and wishing for my own Izark.
The Cabinet of Wonders by Maria Rutkoski
Maria Rutkoski is one of my new fav authors. I’m waiting on her to finish the Winner’s series so I can binge read it.
Between the Notes by Sharon Huss Roat
This book is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l and Lenny is so liurckhwzvnecs8riecmislxuhdhfshdkzmfducguisdclugny I’M MELTING TAKE ME INTO YOUR ARMS
A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston
For some reason, not everyone liked this book????????? Blasphemy I tell ya. I was lucky enough to snag an ARC and I want a finished copy so bad but my local bookstore doesn’t get proper books and I’m currently broke anyway (audiobooks I’m blaming you)
Nobody’s Darling by Teresa Medeiros
Teresa Medeiros is a queen. A QUEEN. Her characters are amazing and real and they never fail to surprise you. Her writng style is pretty nifty as well.
