Favourite Books Of The Year (2018)

As it is now 2019 I think it is time to share my favourite books of 2019. I read over 120 books last year, 125 to be exact so there is a lot to choose from so I will be doing a top 10 with 7 honourable mentions so let's get started...

Honourable Mentions:

Obsidio (The Illuminae Files, #3)And the Ocean Was Our Sky





Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the WorldHeartstopper: Volume One (Heartstopper, #1)





Purple Hearts (The Front Lines #3)To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)



Number 10: Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt 


TheatricalTheatrical was just so fun. I feel in love with everything in the book and loved the romance. I really enjoyed the whole idea of going backstage in the theatre so I would definitely recommend. 
















Number 9: Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare



Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices, #2)
I am more than happy to say that I was a massive fan of Lady Midnight but there was something about Lord of Shadows that I devoured and loved. That ending also broke me so I hope that I can read Queen of Air And Darkness in 2019.  













Number 8: Are We All Lemmings And Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne 

Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes?I did really enjoy this book and thought that it was an interesting look at mental illness. I love Holly Bourne anyway so of course, I was going to love this book. I want everyone to read this and every single one of Holly's books.













Number 7: Ascension by Victor Dixen 

Ascension (Phobos, #1)I devoured this book in one sitting. It was a perfect blend of sci-fi, thriller and romance and I loved every second of it. I also read the second book in this series and can't wait for the Collison!














Number 6: Giant Days by Non Pratt


Giant Days
There is just so much to love about this book and I thought that Non captured the humour and the characters of the series so well. I also loved the fact that it was set at university and we need more books set here!













Number 5: Floored by Various Authors


FlooredFloored was a book that I was highly anticipating this year and it so delivered. I just love everything about the story and the characters and the friendship just everything. 












Number 4: Turtles All The Way Down by John Green


Turtles All the Way Down
I love John Green and always have so I was saving this until I was really and I didn't want to wait for the next one again. I feel like this was his most personable story and I really loved every single page.













Number 3: I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman 


I Was Born for This
I love Alice's book all the time so of course, when I knew that I Was Born For This was going to be released I knew I was going to love it. I was right I adored the characters and the story and Alice just knows how to write a YA book.












Number 2: The Gentlemen's Guide To Vice And Virtue by Mackenzi Lee


The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings, #1)
I loved this book so much! On reflection, there was no way that I couldn't include this book on my list. Ever since I finished the book I haven't stopped thinking about it. I loved Monty and Percy and every single character. The character development I the book was so great. I just loved it!











Number 1: The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth


The Miseducation of Cameron Post
This book guys. This book. It's just so good. Like so good. I loved Cameron as a character and the writing of this book was just so good. It was the best and I loved reading it. The plot of this book is also really important and I loved reading it. It is definitely a new favourite!

Amy

I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films.

So you may think that female characters are actually quite well done in the series but at some points, this is not the case. To look at this further I will be looking at characters individually as well as some aspects of the series in general. I guess that until I first researched the topic, I thought that of course, Harry Potter was going to have good female repres
