Honorable Mentions:

  • The Spy Who Came in From The Cold by John Le Carre. A must read for those who love espionage thriller books.
  • The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski. A solid ending for a series that is both cunning and swoon-worthy. Yaaas!
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Did you not like The Grisha Trilogy like me? Try this. Definitely worth risking again. The atmosphere is reminiscent of The Lies by Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch.
  • The Wrath & The Dawn and The Rose & The Dagger by Rene Ahdieh. Read if you are favoring romance at the moment. The story was made richer by it, I think.
  • Wanderlove by Kristin Hubbard. If you want to go on solo travel soon, this will really put you in the mood for that. A feel-good book, this one.

Top Reads:

  • The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May. Post-apocalyptic world brought by Fae. Similar to the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning (but Jericho Barrons is still No.1!). Ending was brutal!
  • Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman. It draws a combination of emotions that should not be there while reading it. It was incredible!
  • The Lies by Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. High Fantasy at its finest. I am such a sucker for Locke’s brilliance!
  • A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. Yeah, it was all Rhysand. 🙂 I’m shallow like that. Ha! But if you ask me, what about the storyline? That was awesome too. Pick this up, if you got tired of the Throne of Glass series (or just plain icky over Aelin & Rowan =P).
  • Uprooted by Naomi Novik. Let the awards speak for this. Fantasy lovers, this is a MUST read.
  • The Long Game by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I love the “fixer-amidst-politicians” plot. The second half of the book left me reeling in shock. Recommended for suspense thriller genre lovers, YA style.
