💯Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Is there gonna be a day where I don’t gush about this book ? I don’t think so. You can check out my Goodreads review here although it mostly consists of key-smashing and intense fangirling. Leigh Bardugo created a very intense fictional world and her characters are super developed and three-dimensional (some of the best characters arcs I’ve seen). (Check out my SoC Pinterest board here)
💯The Sun is also a Star by Nicola Yoon
This book changed my life ? This masterpiece tackles the story of Natasha (F I E R C E) as she’s about to get deported from the USA back to Jamaica, where she was born. She only has a day left in the US when she meets Daniel (S O F T) and the rest is history. This book is truly a piece of art and it honestly goes a lot further than some insta-lovey/romance novel. You can check my review here.
💯The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
Name A More Iconic Trio, I WON’T WAIT BECAUSE YOU CAN’T. If you had trouble with The Mortal Instruments Series, maybe try out this one. Set in the Shadowhunters universe, it goes beyond a love triangle and other things you might’ve heard about it. Starring : Two Soft Boys, A Badass/Smart/Kind Girl and So Much More.
💯The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I’m gonna say it again (just because) : I LOVE SOFT BOYS and this book could be titled The Soft Boys and Blue. The Raven Boys (i.e boys who attend Aglionby, a private school) are on a quest to find a “dead” Welsh King who’s supposed to grant a wish to the person who wakes him. They’re accompanied by Blue, who comes from a family of psychics and who was told she’d cause her true love to die. However, this is mostly a story about friendship and we don’t get these a lot in YA. The love they all have for each other throughout the series is heart-warming and you might fall in love with them too… I know I have. I still have the last book to read and I’m looking forward to it ! (My Goodreads Review’s available here)
💯The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
I have a thing for books with Angry/Power-Thirsty/Fierce Female MCs. Jude Duarte is a human girl who was taken from our world along with her sisters to Faerie. She’s treated like dirt because of her humanity. This is a story about taking back your power, making questionable decisions and being a Bad Bitch ™. A great compelling universe with amazing world-building and CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.
