I'll kick us off by recommending a few of my favourite books that I have read so far this year! *realises as I write this that there are SO MANY books I want to recommend*


Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia (Sa16+) | Genre: Contemporary

CW: Mental health (anxiety/depression and some mention of a parent's suicide)

This was the first book I read this year and I instantly loved it! It's about when fandom and fame meet. It's good representation for anxiety and I really enjoyed the characters. Without giving too much away, it centres around Eliza, the girl behind a very popular webcomic series. The story explores what happens when her identity is no longer anonymous.


Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi (Sa16+) | Genre: Fantasy

CW: Violence

LOVED. THIS. BOOK. I can't wait for the sequel! I'm terrible at summarising books, so here's the blurb from Goodreads:
SPOILER!!: blurb
They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.

Now we rise.

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orďsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.

Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orďsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.
Scythe by Neal Shusterman (Sa13+) | Genre: Science Fiction

CW: Death. Violence.

This book has such an interesting premise! What if natural death had been eradicated, could be reversed, and technology took care of almost all of humanity's needs? The population is managed using Scythes who are individuals trained to 'glean' a number of people yearly without bias. The book doesn't contain too much graphic violence. It talks a lot about death, but in a way that we don't in real life.

The Night Olivia Fell by Christina McDonald (Sa16+) | Genre: Mystery

CW: Death, Teen Pregnancy(?)

I very much enjoyed this book, for anyone who likes Young Adult (it's not specifically a YA, but it very much read like one to me), Mystery, Crime.

Compared to many of the other books of the Mystery/Crime genre I read (which are not YA), this one is rather mild in those bits, but the plot is basically a big mystery. I quite liked some of the characters, the author made it easy to dislike other characters, and I miiiiiight have shed some tears at the end It's also told from alternating perspectives of Olivia, in the months before the fall, and her mother Abi immediately after, and for a few months after the fall. So, yeah. Here is the blurb (also from Goodreads because I also am horrid at explaining things)
SPOILER!!: blurb
In the vein of Big Little Lies and Reconstructing Amelia comes an emotionally charged domestic suspense novel about a mother unraveling the truth behind how her daughter became brain dead. And pregnant.

A search for the truth. A lifetime of lies.

In the small hours of the morning, Abi Knight is startled awake by the phone call no mother ever wants to get: her teenage daughter Olivia has fallen off a bridge. Not only is Olivia brain dead, she’s pregnant and must remain on life support to keep her baby alive. And then Abi sees the angry bruises circling Olivia’s wrists.

When the police unexpectedly rule Olivia’s fall an accident, Abi decides to find out what really happened that night. Heartbroken and grieving, she unravels the threads of her daughter’s life. Was Olivia’s fall an accident? Or something far more sinister?

Christina McDonald weaves a suspenseful and heartwrenching tale of hidden relationships, devastating lies, and the power of a mother’s love. With flashbacks of Olivia’s own resolve to uncover family secrets, this taut and emotional novel asks: how well do you know your children? And how well do they know you?

I think I recommended this book very often on Twitter

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan (Sa 16+) | Genre: Contemporary

CW: none

This recommendation might sound a little bit biased because I'm an Asian recommended this book from Asian writer about Asian life but if you need a light, no-brainer, fun reading, this is the book. Is the book better than the movie? Oh, yes. I mean they did change some scenes at the movies and the book is pretty much funnier (plus you can study how complicated the old money family in Asia works)

A little blurb from Goodreads:

SPOILER!!:
When Rachel Chu (American-born Chinese Economic Professor) agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young (this old-money Singaporean-Chinese History Professor), she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back.


and this is just the beginning of the trilogy.

Archenemies by Marissa Meyer (Sa13+) | Genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy
*Archenemies is the sequel to Renegades.

I greatly enjoy her writing and wanted to recommend one of her novels here. Trust me, she has written a ton of great stuff!

CW: Violence

"The Renegades Trilogy continues, in this fiercely awaited second installment after the New York Times-bestselling Renegades by Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles. Time is running out. Together, they can save the world. But they each other's worst nightmare. Nova's double life is about to get a lot more complicated: As Insomnia, she is a full-fledged member of the Renegades, a syndicate of powerful and beloved superheroes. She works with Adrian's patrol unit to protect the weak and maintain order in Gatlon City. As Nightmare, she is an Anarchist - a group of of villains who are determined to destroy the Renegades. Nova wants vengeance against the so-called heroes who once failed her when she needed them most. But as Nova, her feelings for Adrian are deepening, despite the fact that he is the son of her sworn enemies and, unbeknownst to Nova, he has some dangerous secrets of his own. In this second installment of the Renegades trilogy, Nova, Adrian, and the rest of their crew - Ruby, Oscar, and Danna -- are faced with escalating crime in Gatlon City, while covert weapons and conflicting missions have Nova and Adrian questioning not only their beliefs about justice, but also the feelings they have for each other. The line between good and evil has been blurred, but what's clear to them both is that too much power could mean the end of their city - and the world - as they know it. this is part of 'The Renegades Trilogy #2”
