Today’s topic: Top 5 Books You Read as an ARC

IMG_8572This was one of the first ARCs I ever owned. I won it from a Twitter giveaway hosted by Fierce Reads. I love this trilogy and I am hoping to reread it again before the end of the year. 

IMG_8570A Million Junes was my favorite book of 2017 and I haven’t stopped raving about it since.

IMG_8571I adored this retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I’m so excited for Meagan Spooner’s Robin Hood retelling called Sherwood. Is it 2019, yet?

IMG_8569If there is one contemporary writer I highly recommend to readers it’s Emma Mills. Her books are always so swoony and realistic. Definitely give Foolish Hearts a read–the Froot Loops will make sense after you read the book, lol. 

IMG_8574I was so lucky to receive a manuscript ARC of Legendary from Flatiron Books. I love the world of Caraval, and this book did not disappoint.

Before I started blogging, I remember reading Fangirl and loving it. I adored the romance aspect and I was ecstatic that it took place in a college setting.

IMG_8191I was so afraid that I wasn’t going to love this book as much as everyone else raved about it. But I am so glad I pushed myself to read it last year, and I’m excited to give Scorpio Races a reread this autumn (it’s definitely an autumnal read). 

IMG_8192Fantasy is one of my favorite genres to read, and The Storyspinner did not disappoint in that category. I read this book a few years ago, and I would love to dive back into it someday. 

IMG_8193This fall I am planning to reread a few of my favorite witchy and horror books. Practical Magic is one of my favorite movies, and I am looking forward to diving back into the book again (it’s probably been over 10 years since I read it) and possibly doing a comparison post on the differences between the book and the movie.

IMG_8194You probably know by now, because I never shut up about it, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE A Million Junes by Emily Henry. And when I finally do a reread, I cannot wait to swoon and laugh and cry; this book has all the feels!

I love the main character Mim so much in Mosquitoland. She is feisty, honest, and holds nothing back. 

IMG_8046Obviously, Alice drives this story and plot to the very last page. 

IMG_8045
I adore the The Winner’s Trilogy (it’s probably my favorite trilogy EVER), and Kestrel and Arin are the two main forces that drive this fantasy with so much soul and longing and heartache…GAH I love their journey so much. 

IMG_8044
JUNE…in a story filled with grief and loss,  Jack “June” O’Donnell IV provides the much needed humor to make this novel so heartfelt and comforting. With June’s quick wit and humor, this book is like receiving the most welcoming hug and a much-needed cry to get through any sorrowful situation.

IMG_8043As a bildugroman, Jane Eyre speaks through the pages, allowing her reader to follow her progressive footsteps to being an orphan then a governess and then to a Victorian woman with financial means to support herself. Through every page, Jane is fierce and bold, and she never gives up on doing what she feels is right.
