My favorite books I’ve read this year!
Happy New Year to all my fellow book worms￼ and reading enthusiasts 😁. Looking back on this year I’ve read so many more books than last! Besides my monthly book club I also joined the summer reading challenge my local library was hosting.
This year I didn’t limit myself to a certain genre or author that was hot at the moment. I believe this is one of the reasons why I read so many books.
I’ve piled a list of my favorite books I’ve read this year and why I love them. There might be some 🚨 spoiler alerts 🚨 so you have been warned!
I’ll never tell
By Catherine McKenzie
Summery: I’ll never tell is set in at a￼ summer camp in Canada, owned by seemingly normal family. Tragedy strikes the summer camp and forever changes the family dynamic.
This book is a total page turner! What I like most about the book are the different points of view. Chapter by chapter you figure out what really happened one summer night. It kept me on my toes and I totally wasn’t expecting an ending like this one! If you are into mystery and suspense books I highly recommend! This book was definitely my favorite book of the year
Born at Midnight
By C.C Hunter
Summery:￼￼ Born at midnight follows a teenager going through major life changes. Her grandma dies and her mom and dad are struggling in their marriage. kylies young life is forever changed when she is sent to a summer camp for delinquents, or so she thought.
I love Born at midnight for its characters. C.C Hunter manages to develop multiple complex characters in one book. We are introduced to bad guys, good guys and the not so sure guys while still moving the story along without dragging it on. I can’t wait to read more in this series and see kylies life play out. If you like syfy and young adult books I suggest you check out this series.
Apart of Your World
Summary: Everyone knows the story of Disney’s the Little Mermaid- princess falls in love with prince; Princess makes deal with sea witch; prince slays evil witch and they live happily ever after. They even have a daughter later on (if you know you know) Part of Your world does not leave off on a happy ending. Part of Your World leaves off with Ariel being defeated and king triton being dead. After a 5 year time jump Ariel is faced with a life changing choice.
I love this version of the Little Mermaid. In this version you get to understand Ariel on a different more complex way. You get to see the conflict she has choosing a life under the sea verses a life with prince Eric. I love the addition to new characters that help the story along. While this book is a teen book and an easy read I highly recommended it. It’s a pleasant read.
Lying next to me by Gregg Olsen (thriller/mystery)
The Fairest of All: a Tale of the Wicked Queen by Serena Valentino (teen/young adult)
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie (classic mystery)
