Howdy, howdy! How’s everyone doing? I spent far too much time trying to fix something unfixable before I realized it was Amazon’s fault, so it’s late and I’m cranky. In other words, this post is just going to be a lazy one. It’s a recap of what I’ve read this year, plus the last two I plan on finishing. It’s pretty much what you would expect from a reading list from me.
1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling. It’s still my favorite of the series.
2. One Poison Pie by Lynn Cahoon. You can see my review here.
3. Take Joy by Jane Yolen. It was a nice little craft book, but nothing spectacular.
4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling. A little more rambling than I remembered, but still in my top three HP books.
5. The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey. You can see my review here.
6. Dark Shadow by Danielle Rose. A good series.
7. Vasilisa by Julie Mathison. You can see my review here.
8. Dark Descent by Danielle Rose. A good series.
9. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling. Probably in the bottom three of my favorite HP books.
10. Down World by Rebecca Phelps. You can see my review here.
11. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. Somewhere in the middle of my favorite HP books.
12. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling. Probably my least favorite HP book.
13. Folklorn by Angela Mi Young Hur. You can see my review here.
14. Dark Power by Danielle Rose. A good series.
15. Death in Bloom by Jess Dylan. You can see my review here.
16. Fatal Fried Rice by Vivien Chien. I love this cozy mystery series.
17. The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix. I was super disappointed by this one.
18. Bound for Murder by Victoria Gilbert. A little description heavy, but a cute cozy series.
19. Walking Through Needles by Heather Levy. You can see my review here.
20. Watch Her by Edwin Hill. The series is on the darker end of the cozy spectrum and worth checking out.
21. Just One Look by Lindsay Cameron. You can see my review here.
22. A Crafter Hooks a Killer by Holly Quinn. A cute series, but nothing special.
23. Murder in the Village by Lisa Cutts. You can see my review here.
24. Winterwood by Shea Ernshaw. A lovely read, if a bit predictable.
25. A Time to Swill by Sherry Harris. Another cute series.
26. Snow, Glass, Apples by Neil Gaiman and Colleen Doran. Beautiful illustrations, but the fairy tale retelling was just meh.
27. The Orphan Witch by Paige Crutcher. You can see my review here.
28. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I freaking loved this book and I have no idea why. It’s not my usual genre, but it gave me all the feels and I can’t get over how much I enjoyed it.
29. The Christmas Dress by Courtney Cole. You can see my review here.
30. Murder Always Barks Twice by Jennifer Hawkins. Another super cute cozy series and it features a corgi.
31. Storm the Earth by Rebecca Kim Wells. I probably should’ve re-read the first book in this duology, but things eventually came back to me. Definitely recommend it.
32. Flying Angels by Danielle Steel. You can see my review here.
33. Midnight Spells Murder by Mary Angela. It’s not a bad cozy series, but not great.
34. Currently Reading: Shackled Fates by Thilde Kold Holdt. I am in love with this trilogy so far.
35. Currently Reading: A History of Wild Places by Shea Ernshaw. I couldn’t find a book I wanted to review this month, so I decided to buy Ernshaw’s newest book and review it later this month.
