This year I set myself the goal of reading 60 books and I’ve already achieved it! I’m so proud of myself! When I set the goal, I didn’t expect at all to reach it this soon. I thought it would be fun to go over all 60 of them and tell you what I thought!
Numbers by Rachel Ward // 3.5/ 5 stars It started out as an okay read, but got very emotional near the ending. I cried
Ignite me by Tahereh Mafi // 5/5 stars I was obsessed. I adored it. Easily my most favourite from the series.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas // 4/5 stars I enjoyed it. I really liked the MC, Celaena and the plot kept me entertained.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater // 4/5 stars Definitely a step up from the first book. I highly enjoyed it. Ronan.
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon // 2/5 stars I didn’t like this. Too much info dumping. Boring. It took me ages to finish.
Le cinquième doigt by Richard De Boeck // 1/5 stars I hated this book. It’s extremely problematic. UGH.
Like No Other by Una LaMarche // 3/5 stars I enjoyed this. It was diverse and it talked about some important issues in a good way.
Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda // 5/5 stars I adored this book! It’s so fluffy and cute and it warms my heart. I love the characters. The book is funny and relatable. Definitely a favourite of mine.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer // 4/5 stars I highly enjoyed this, although it’s my least favourite book of the Lunar Chronicles.
Le Cinquième Doigt by Richard De Boeck // 1/5 stars I was forced to re-read this. I hated it even more the second time.
The Little Shop of Happy Ever After by Jenny Colgan // 3/5 stars This was enjoyable. I loved the bookish vibe.
The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan // 4.5/5 stars I obviously loved it! It’s Rick Riordan. That equals a fun and adventurous plot, great twists on mythology, fantastic characters and laughing out loud. And this one is diverse too!
Not if I see you first by Eric Lindgren // 4/5 stars This was a very pleasant surprise. I liked reading from a very different perspective. I cried. I was disappointed by the ending though.
Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas // 2/5 stars This was a massive disappointment. Nothing happened and it took me ages to read.
Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas // 3/5 stars This was better the previous novel, but still only okay. I didn’t like the interactions between Celaena and Rowan.
Cress by Marissa Meyer // 5/5 stars I loved this. It’s my favourite from the Lunar Chronicles (tied with Winter).
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater // 4/5 stars I highly enjoyed this. I found it even better than the Dream Thieves. I just love the atmosphere of these books.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo // 4.5/5 stars I was kinda confused in the beginning, but ultimately I loved it. The characters, the constant suspense, not knowing what will happen,…
Winter by Marissa Meyer // 5/5 stars I loved this. It was the perfect conclusion to the main series.
Wonder by R. J. Palacio // 4/5 stars I enjoyed this book a lot. It was a very quick read that handled important topics in a magnificent way.
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy // 1/5 stars Massive disappointment. I did not like this book at all. I have several problems with it, so I’ll just direct you to my review if you want to know more.
Everything, everything by Nicola Yoon // 3/5 stars I highly enjoyed this book and I finished it very quickly. I recognise this book has problems though, so I took two stars of my rating for that.
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry // 5/5 stars I loved this! It holds a lot of good memories for me. I get something else from it every time I read it.
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater // 4/5 stars I highly enjoyed it. I like how it concluded the series. I still absolutely adore its atmosphere. And Gansey of course.
How to be A Bawse by Lilly Singh // 5/5 stars I loved this. It was most helpful, motivational and inspirational. Everyone could take something from it.
To All The Boys by Jenny Han // 3/5 stars This was kinda disappointing. I don’t ship Lara Jean and Peter nor Lara Jean and Josh. I liked Lara Jean’s sister Margot better than I liked her. Oops.
PS. I still love you by Jenny Han // 4/5 stars I liked this book better than the previous one although I wasn’t a big fan of the ending.
Maus I by Art Spiegelman // 3/5 stars I liked this. It felt very authentic.
Maus II by Art Spiegelman // 4/5 stars I liked this one better than the first.
The Selection by Kiera Cass // 4/5 stars I decided to re-read it since I loved it the first time around. I still really liked it.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon // 5/5 stars This was a very slow read, but I highly enjoyed it.
I’ll Give you the sun by Jandy Nelson // 5/5 stars A re-read of one of my favourite books. I fell in love with the characters, the story and the beautiful writing all over again.
Ten Thousand skies above you by Claudia Gray // 4/5 stars I liked this sequel a lot more than the first. It took the story a lot further and it was less trope-y.
Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli // 5/5 stars Another re-read of one of my favourite books. I still absolutely adored it.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas // 4/5 stars I highly enjoyed this although it was rather slow in the beginning. It picked up so much near the end of the book.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas // 5/5 stars I adored this! It was an instant favourite. I’m obsessed.
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli // 4/5 stars I loved this. It was extremely relatable.
Animal Farm by George Orwell // 4/5 stars This took me ages to read. Incredible story though. The deeper meaning is done so well.
We Should All Be Feminist by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie // 5/5 stars I love the ideas in this book and I can definitely say I’m a feminist. Everyone should read this.
A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas // 5/5 stars An awesome concluding novel to the series I’ve grown to adore. This was fabulous.
The Elite by Kiera Cass // 2.5/5 stars I regret re-reading this. I was very annoyed by the characters this time and I decided to DNF it so I wouldn’t further destroy my positive feelings toward this book.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins // 5/5 stars I loved re-reading this favourite of mine.
The Sun is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon // 5/5 stars I loved the fun and fluffy story, the diversity, the characters and the ending.
Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher // 3/5 stars I enjoyed this. It was the first story I’ve ever read told in only letters. I loved the MC’s sister Dot. I didn’t like the girl-on-girl hate and the very questionable behaviour of the MC though.
Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley // 4/5 stars I loved this book with its amazing bookish vibe. I loved the writing style. This book simply made me happy.
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins // 5/5 stars Just as the Hunger Games, I loved re-reading this. It remains one of my all time favourite series.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas // 5/5 stars This dealt wonderfully with some hard but important topics. It was emotional, funny and relatable. New favourite.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins // 5/5 stars Again, I loved re-reading this. It’s my least favourite in the trilogy, but I still love it.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer // 4.5/5 stars I loved this book all over again. I buddy read it with a bunch of fellow bloggers. It was great.
Kids of Appetite by David Arnold // 5/5 stars This was an amazing surprise. I adored it. I cried several times. I loved the characters, the plot and the amazing writing style. New favourite.
Persepolis Vol. 1 by Marjane Satrapi // 4/5 stars This was enjoyable. I learned a ton.
#Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso // 3/5 stars This was a disappointment because of my wrong expectations. I thought it would also be about life and not only about work. It wasn’t that helpful.
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry // 5/5 stars I still loved it. As always I took something different from it than last time.
Persepolis Vol. 2 by Marjane Satrapi // 4/5 stars This was a great continuation of the story. I enjoyed it and I learned from it.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, Jim Kay and Siobhan Dowd // 5/5 stars I straight up sobbed. This was so emotional. The monster was different from what I expected, but even better. The illustrations were perfect and added so much to the story.
Mao’s Mussen by Dirk-Jan Hoek // 3/5 stars Very simple and enjoyable story, but kind of forgettable. It was super quick and perfect for the read-a-thon I was participating in.
Persepolis Vol. 3 by Marjane Satrapi // 3.5/5 stars I enjoyed this less than the previous two. It’s my least favourite in the series.
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus // 4/5 stars I enjoyed it. I had an inkling of who the murderer was and I was right, although I only knew half of it.
Persepolis Vol. 4 by Marjane Satrapi // 4/5 stars Again, I enjoyed it and I learned from it. I would recommend these graphic novels.
Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli // 5/5 stars I adored it. It’s so swoon-worthy and cute. It makes me happy.
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo // 5/5 stars I loved this. It’s amazingly well constructed. The characters and plot are fabulous. I love slowly finding out the plans and trying to guess what Kaz’s next move will be.
Saga Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples // 4/5 stars This was better than expected. I really enjoyed it.
And those are all the books I’ve read so far this year. I hope you enjoyed seeing a quick overview. For more in-depth thoughts you can check out my wrap up posts or my reviews. Thanks for reading! See you next time!
