Hi everyone! So since the year is coming to an end I decided to list off my tops 5 books of the year!
First on the list is Love and Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch. So this book is a young adult romance. The reader follows the story of Lina who after her mother passes away, she moves to Florence Italy to live with her father. Thing is, she didn’t know who her father was until now.
I loved this book, it has very funny parts and others that are quite serious. The first thing I wanted to do after reading it was learn Italian and go to Florence and explore the places she visited!
Next on the list is, Forget Me by K. A. Harrington. A murder mystery novel where the main character is trying to understand if her boyfriends death was accidental or intentional. The only problem is she finds an online profile that looks like him but with a different name. So the questions are, has he been lying to her and who murdered him?
I enjoyed this book so much. In a every chapter something happens and it makes the book much more interesting and fast passed!
Simon vs The Homo sapiens Agenda by Becky Abertalli. This has been an amazing year for Becky Abertalli. She even released the companion book Leah On The Offbeat though I have yet to read it.
So this book follows the story of Simon a teen who is coming to terms that he is gay. He starts talking with an anonymous student who is also gay. And well, things happen, drama, acceptance, with a hint of theater club. Definitely go read it if you haven’t yet!
Number 4 goes to Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee. Monty and his friend Percy embark on a tour around Europe before they face adulthood. Adventures, romance and unexpected detours make this book fantastic.
I fell in love with the characters instantly, they all have their personalities that sometimes clash, but someway they join together to solve the problems they encounter.
And last but definitely not least, They Both Die At the End by Adam Silvera! Another author who became a favorite this year. In the book world, on the day of your death you get a call from death cast, warning you that you’re going to die, but not when or how. Two charecters get a call on the same day Mateo and Rufus. Now yes the title may spoil the ending, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read it!
The struggles they go through on their last day are incredible. The plot works so well and has you on the edge of your seat waiting for their death. If you haven’t bought yourself a copy yet, go buy the paperback that just came out!
