Hi friends! I obviously haven’t gotten myself together yet to make a favorites list but here are my top 3 most surprising reads to tide y’all over!
If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio | There are no words for this. If We Were Villains was the only Friday Fright-A-Thon book I got to read and I don’t regret it AT ALL. It’s slow and beautiful and slowly devolves into the twisty, complex darkness of the characters and what secrets they’re keeping. I had no expectations whatsoever, except possibly hoping to be surprised by a twist but this was so much more.
Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young | I read this as my fist e-ARC ever and didn’t know much about anything. But then there was action and slow moments and sweet moments and emotional moments and atmospheric writing. I closed the book, and realized I had somehow gotten this deep love of these characters.
The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson | I was really just in shock after finishing this. Not because I wasn’t expecting not to like it but because PLOT TWISTS. Everything that happens in this book is the culmination of the events of the previous books and I just can’t deal.
So that’s it! Tell me your most surprising reads of 2018!
