I don’t know if you know this about me (if you’ve been on my blog any time before this you’d know) but I absolutely loved Carry On. I even said that I wished there was a sequel. And then…THIS happened?! OMG!!!
I need this in my hands right now…but I hope that tagline doesn’t mean that SnoBaz is over.
I was satisfied with the ending. I had convinced myself that Kaz and Inej would eventually find their way back to each other and live happily ever after. I had told myself that King of Scars would be enough for me. And then Leigh answered my innermost desires. Gah!
Are you looking forward to these two new books? Any of your faves announce a continuation to a story you really wanted more of? Let me know.
aka That time that I struggled to make a decision…
This was the hardest decision I’ve had to make all year. I’m sure of it. But, I somehow managed to get it done.
In no particular order, because THAT would have been IMPOSSIBLE to choose, here are my absolute favorite books this year.
If I Die Before I Wake
I’ve been gushing about this book ever since I read it (see all my gushing here), and honestly, if this didn’t make my list something would be wrong.
This was one of those moments where the book and the movie are perfectly in sync, and I truly appreciated that. The spook factor was high. It brought up all the nostalgic feelings of my first time watching the movie and being hooked on Stephen King adaptations.
History Is All You Left Me
Is this a surprise to anyone who follows my blog? Anyone at all? I don’t think so, because I am the biggest Adam Silvera stan that there ever was, and anything he writes is pure gold as far as I’m concerned. There were tears, but the story in and of itself was simply beautiful. And worth the tears.
They Both Die at the End
I’m still not over this. It hurts so good. Rufus and Mateo are my new faves tbh. I gushed more here.
This one is Becky Albertalli level sweet. Cavities are a guarantee and Baz and Simon are the perfect couple. Also Simon is the best anti-hero ever written. I can see myself rereading this time and again, falling even more in love with their love.
There were so many more amazing books that I read this year, but I couldn’t possibly list them all. What books stayed with you over these 365? Any on my list?
