I’ve been reading other’s Six For Sunday posts for awhile and decided it was about time I started joining in. The weekly prompts are created by alittlebutalot, go check out their awesome blog! This week’s prompt is ‘Six 2019 Favourites’, to make this easier I’m choosing six that weren’t included in my post last month.
The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins:
This book is incredible, and became a favourite long before I turned the last page. I’m not a massive reader of adult fiction, Frannie’s story completely blew me away. It’s one of those books that leaves you feeling privileged you got to read it. Accepting the review request is honestly The best spontaneous decision I’ve made. Just typing this is making me want to re-read it.
A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer:
To say I adored this is an understatement, I love a good retelling and this was no exception. A Curse So Dark and Lonely brings a new twist on a classic tale and Brigid does a brilliant job! I’m so excited to read the sequel asap!
The Beautiful by Renée Ahdieh:
This one won’t be a surprise to anyone. The Beautiful was everything I hoped it would be and so much more. The setting is gorgeous, the plot and characters brilliantly written. It was a joy to read and I cannot wait to read the next installment. Vampires are finally back and I’ve never been happier.
The Familiars by Stacey Halls:
The Familiars is just stunning, It’s one of those rare books that’s a privilege to read. It’s set during the Pendle Witch Trials, I’ve always been fascinated by witch trials but never heard of these ones. The story is fictional, though Fleetwood Shuttleworth existed and would have been on the sidelines during the trials. I can’t tell you how much I adore this one.
A Throne of Swans by Katharine and Elizabeth Corr:
I know this one is a 2020 release, I read it last year so it still counts, right? This book is everything, I can’t tell you how much I love A Throne of a Swans, it has everything I love in a book. I highly recommend reading it if you haven’t already. You can read my review here. I need the next book asap!
Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly:
I could not put this down, I was still up past 3AM devouring it. Stepsister is set after events in Cinderella and follows one of her stepsisters. This was one of my absolute favourite books I read last year, I highly recommend giving it a read.
Have you read any of these, if so, what did you think? Let me know in the comments!
