Last Year I Was Reading…

I thought I’d change today’s post from a more traditional tag and do this cool and unique meme I saw over at Kristin Kraves Books.

The rules:

Take your current read and compare it to what you reading this exact time last year. Which one do you like better? What is different about the books? Any special facts/things you want to make note of or bring attention to

And I thought it would be fun to go back to the start of my blog and look at what I was reading all the way back to 2016!

Currently Reading

Making Friends with Alice Dyson by Poppy Nwosu | Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert

Making Friends with Alice DysonGet a Life, Chloe Brown (The Brown Sisters, #1)

I picked up Making Friends with Alice Dyson because I had read a few fantasy stories in a row and wanted to switch up genres and contemporary is always a go-to for me in summer. And I just finished Take a Hint, Dani Brown – the companionย  to Get a Life, Chloe Brown – last week, so I have to give all the props to my library for having this on audio so I can listen to it too!


Dear Haiti, Love Alaine by Maika & Maritza Moulite | Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin | Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas

Dear Haiti, Love AlaineSerpent & Dove (Serpent & Dove, #1)Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7)


2019 was when I really started reading more than 1 book at a time – picking up books in multiple formats and/or genres and it shows in the number and types or books I was reading. I actually didn’t enjoy Dear Haiti, Love Alaine as much as I hoped and DNF’d the book 2 days later. The story really wasn’t what I thought it was going to be and I wasn’t enjoying it any more. Serpent & Dove is a much hyped fantasy, but I thought it was just okay. I honestly can’t even remember a thing that happens or the characters names. Kingdom of Ash was a reread of the Throne of Glass series I was working on and enjoyed just as much the second time around.


These Rebel Waves by Sarah Raasch

These Rebel Waves (Stream Raiders, #1)

These Rebel Waves was also a book I ended up DNFing after trying to read it for over a week and only getting 15% through. The whole thing was lackluster and not enough to keep me going.


They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

They Both Die at the End

They Both Die at the End ended up being on my 2017 Favorites and is probably my favorite Adam Silvera book to date. It’s the perfect blend of sad and hopeful.


The Rose Society by Marie Lu

The Rose Society (The Young Elites, #2)

I don’t remember much from The Rose Society except that my favorite character in the series, Magiano, is introduced!

Have you read any of these books? What are you reading today?

    I’ve been meaning to do this tag, I keep seeing it on Kristin’s blog too! Loved how you went back to 2016! I really need to read Serpent & Dove by the end of this year, I keep seeing it everywhere, and I also need to still read The Rose Society (and reread The Young Elites).
