Number 5: Daughters Unto Devils by Amy Lukavics 

Daughters unto DevilsThe cover to this book is very beautiful but I just did not like this book. I am normally put off of horror but this was not that scary it was just a little creepy. I ended up unhauling it, I don't know I guess I was expecting more. 









Number 4: Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler

Why We Broke UpThe cover to this is really simple but I really like it. However I didn't really like this book at all. I found so many things wrong with this book so...










Number 3: Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan

Nick & Norah's Infinite PlaylistLike the other two books, the cover for this book is really pretty especially as the cover only has words on it however the book just didn't live up to my expectations. I found the characters annoying and it did take me a long time to read for such a small book. 









Number 2: Eve by Anna Carey 

Eve (Eve, #1)I did actually like this book but I was running out of options so I included this one. The cover of this book is really beautiful although I don't know if the cover lived up to how I felt about it.










Number 1: What We Left Behind by Robin Talley 

What We Left BehindI was really excited about this book and this is represented in the cover, it is not afraid to make it known that it is a LGBTQ+ book and I love that. However I didn't love this book, I have a lot of problems with it and a review will be coming soon...

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
