I usually wait until the very last minute to post my favorites of the year but not this year. I really really doubt I’m going to read another favorite before the years over. I haven’t even read a book in a while I’ve been in a huge reading slump so I doubt I’ll even read many more books before the years over.
I haven’t loved a book series this much in a while, I don’t read many series anymore, I had forgotten how nice it is to have an epic sage to get invested in. I absolutely adore all the characters and their relationships with each other are realistic and wonderful. The world is vast, the magic system is splendid it’s complicated but not overly so.
The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl vol 4
I love all the Squirrel Girl comics each one is fun, adorable, and filled with puns. The Mole Man/online dating storyline in vol 4 was probably by favorite but the Asgard story is amazing as well! There all amazing. Vol 4 probably did make me laugh the hardest though.
This was an unexpected favorite it’s a beautiful tale I loved the main character and deeply related to her. It’s a perfect retelling it’s original and classic. It feels timeless and is just utterly enchanting.
The Language of Thorns
This put me in the biggest reading slump it was so good and the writing is amazing. The illustrations are beautiful and add so much to each story overall it’s a beautiful book.
The Girl with the Ghost Machine
The book that made me cry the most award goes to this lovely heartbreaking book. Even though it broke my heart it also mended it it’s a comforting and fantastic read. Its a heavy book but everything is handled so carefully.
I was going to choose just five favorites but I have to include this book it’s so adorable. It is a bit too cheesy sometimes but it’s so much fun! It celebrates being a nerd, and it made me fall in love with a fictional franchise because it was that well done.
