Some highlights (in chronological order, not order of importance...we all know the Grisha Trilogy MADE this year for me):

Recommended by Nicki//enemies to lovers//sort of arranged marriage but also really good?//a labyrinth//so many of my favorite tropes in one book//the SHIP tho


Everything I wanted in a series finale//my SHIP//I just love Morgan L. Busse


My edition is prettier than this//so much about humanity lol//so many references in pop culture?


Can't believe this series is done//it was my childhood and adulthood and EEK//so good//so pure//DOOLEY//LACE//FATHER TIIIIIIM


guilty pleasure aka a TON of content//but also just FUN//I love McManus' mysteries


Brooke made me read it and honestly I should've listened to her sooner I've owned it for like five years but it was just QUALITY//so good//still uncertain on the ships? but otherwise ACK


Gotta share the whole series at once//OH MY GOSH//a new all-time favorite//just perfection from start to finish//MALINA FOREVER//Nikolai is mine//the Darkling is filth//just everything//buddy read with Brooke and ACK so good//Brooke: you might like this//me: nah//me: YES//Brooke: -_- did I not tell you


I didn't read enough indie this year and that makes me sad//but next year will be different//I LOVED this//high fantasy and HOPE
