Top 10 Books From January to July 2019

Here are the top ten books of that I read between January and July 2019 !

1. Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey Mcquiston
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
This book contains one of the best bi-representation I have ever read, it is lyrical, politically aware and the romance is as sweet as candy, but feels all too real. These characters are charming and the issues they face are true, I loved the multimedia aspect of it, the e-mails, text and multiple POV's made it all the more enjoyable a must read and new release of 2019.

2. Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
Skyward by Brandon Sanderson
A beautiful YA science-fiction that delves into what we perceive as the truth, camaraderie and a school for fighters. This book is funny, sad and touching in the most unexpected ways, I loved the intricacy of the world Brandon Sanderson created and how all those elements came together and the friendships that build throughout the story. Also, amazing drawings of the space ships.

3. Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff
This is the start of a new series by the marvelous writing duo that Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, they previously wrote the illuminae files together. This book is a multiple POV series about a lie that is uncovered 200 years or so after and when a young teen is found in the carcass of a spaceship by a soon graduated student of the Aurora flight school, they begin to unravel. This is an hilarious story about a ragtag team that will be made to save the world.

4.The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
Once again this duo of woman authors did it, another funny, romantic story. This time setting up two people both brother or sister of the groom and bride to go on the honeymoon in their place. If you are looking for a cute, funny, full of twists and turns love story than this is for you !

5. Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto
Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau-Preto
A beautiful, political intrigue fantastical story about Phoenix Riders, two sisters and a century old war. This book is a truly original gem of a story and a wonderful debut novel that is also the start of a series you can't miss.

6. The Queen's Rising by Rebecca Ross ( The Queen's Resistance by Rebecca Ross)
The Queen's Rising by Rebecca   RossThe Queen’s Resistance by Rebecca   Ross
This is definitely more of a political intrigue that happens to be in a fantastical medieval-esque world. This book was a wonderful audiobook; the setup is in a world where people study a passion in the hopes to be chosen by a patron to become a master in a 'passion' such as knowledge, art, music, etc. Though this is a duology it does feel like one book and thus I recommend reading/listening to them back to back.

7. Always by Kindle Alexander
Always by Kindle Alexander
This is a wonderful novel that tells the history of how two men fell in love and lived their lives together. It is beautifully written it feels raw and real. I loved seeing how they fell in love and spent their lives together.

8.Cut the Time : Premiere Impression by Judy Jong
Cut Time, Tome 1 by Judy Jong

This is an indie graphic novel that has some of the most beautiful art I have ever seen, The main character is Rel a blind girl who can see the world through the eyes of her falcon. The series start after she saves a rich heir from an assassination attempt. She the heir and a sorcerer doctor will go on a journey to help Rel make a journey across the desert.

9. History is all you left me by Adam Silvera
History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
Adam Silvera has done it once again, he broke my heart. Was it a captivating story, yes, did I enjoy it, yes. Did I also hate it, yes. It is both wonderful and heart wrenching, I hated Theo, like so many things he did with his new boyfriend was simply not right, but I also couldn't help but feel Griffin's lost, his hope and ultimately him finding a new way to live without his best friend and ex-boyfriend in the world.
Must have a box of tissues to read !

And finally

10. Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan Mcguire
Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire
This is a series that follow the lives of children (who like Alice in Alice's adventures in wonderland) that have fallen into another world, it's a story that follows them when they come back to our reality. Each novel follows a different character or characters, one book is in our world while the next in one of the fantastical world, while also all being connected for a bigger story line. They are short books that have beautiful writing and are a must read for anyone who ever dreamt of finding a door to another world.
