Melany from Mel to the Any tagged me to do this cool Greek Gods tag! I’m hoping to add more Greek mythology adaptations to my tbr for next year, so I’m hoping I have some good answers!

The Rules

• Pingback to Zuky here so she can read all your posts!
• You can use her graphics if you like, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to.
• Tag as many people as you want, but please share the love.

My Favorite Book: Words of Radiance  by Brandon Sanderson

I just can’t say enough good things about The Stormlight Archives. The entire series is really special to me, and there’s something especially awesome about book 2. The most recent book was on a pretty even keel, and I think I’ll love future books even more but for now, Words of Radiance is my #1.

 

Badass Female: Paige Mahoney from The Bone Season

Not only is Paige an amazing and loyal friend, but she is also a very powerful clairvoyant. She uses those powers to make big changes in her world, and it’s just amazing to watch her grow into a leader through the first 3 books of the series. I can’t wait to read the rest of her story.

 

Favorite Debuts:

The Poppy War (The Poppy War, #1)The Astonishing Color of After

The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang

Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan

 

Favorite Non-Fiction Book: Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson

This book takes a hard look at the politics surrounding death row in the US. I found it extremely moving and eye-opening.

 

A book you recommend to everyone: Give the Dark my Love by Beth Revis

There are a lot on this post already that I recommend frequently, but recently this book has gotten all my love. It has so many elements I rarely find in YA. Not a huge focus on romance, plague storyline, grief/grieving, tragedy. I was so here for it, finished it in one sitting. Give it a try if you want an excellent necromancy story.

 

Book I wish didn’t exist: A Court of Frost and Starlight

 

Beautiful & Ground Breaking: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Though I was tempted to go with the same answer as Melany for this one, I can’t deny the majesty of Strange the Dreamer. Something about this book is truly singular and I can’t wait to reread the series, even though Muse lacks some of the magic for me.

 

Beautiful Book Cover: 

Darkdawn (The Nevernight Chronicle, #3)

 

Book you Sped Through: Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson

I was so into The Remnant Chronicles after the first book, but each one after that just didn’t measure up. The latest installment was really not my jam, and I found the plot meandering and overly tropey.

 

If you have read to this point consider yourself tagged! Thanks for reading. ❤
