A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)Another Beauty and The Beast retelling but this time with faeries/fey and I am excited to read this. This book has been hyped up by the book bloggers and booktubers so I am scared to read it but hopeful it lives up to the hype...









Number 1: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter by Marissa Meyer

This series is the overall package, the amazing writing, the enjoyable characters, and plots that link directly to fairy tales. Cinder is a faiytale retelling of Cinderella and Scarlet being a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood and Cress in a retelling of Rapunzel. Winter is a retelling of Snow White and is released later this year. They are not direct retelling as they have a sci-fi twist. This is one of the only series that I have read on this list and I highly recommend you read this.

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
