Top books read this year

I will read more this year, but it’s the half year mark now. So let’s kick off the summer by talking about the books I have read in the last six months and my most anticipated releases this year.

  1. The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green: love this essay book. 5 star experience. My one-word review on Goodreads: “wow”.
  2. You’ll Be the Death of Me by Karen M. McManus is expected on November 30, 2021. I always have an interesting reading experience with her books in which I started reading her work during the early days of the pandemic, and I loved the One of Us ongoing series. I think I told you about it in my December blog of top ten books.
  3. These Violent Ends by Chloe Gong is a conclusion of the These Violent Delights duology, a reimagining of Romeo and Juliet set in Shanghai during the Roaring Twenties. The book is my most anticipated historical fantasy and is due to come out on November 17. The betrayal at the heart of the book…it is great!!!
  4. Of course, Kate Alice Marshall came out with a brilliant Young Adult (YA) paranormal thriller, Our Last Echoes. I won’t say anymore because I am afraid of ruining it.
  5. Aurora’s End is an end to the Aurora Cycle trilogy. It is a YA sci-fi fantasy by the best-selling duo, Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff coming out in November. Of course, I have a bunch of books I’ll be reading in November.
  6. Last, and my favorite, To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is a space opera by Christopher Paolini. Over 800 pages of futuristic space suspense. I’m still amazed at the kindness of Christopher Paolini and look up at my now-framed autographed poster and re-read the very inspirational letter he sent to me as I continue to write my blog book and fiction.

That’s all I have for you today. As you can tell, I’ve been escaping to sci-fi fantasy worlds this year.

As always, hit the subscribe thingy. I write about life as I know it, accessibility, reading, writing and politics.
