Happy Thanksgiving! 5 Books I'm the Most Thankful For!


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I hope all of you are having a lovely day filled with happiness and love! Today, I'm sharing with you five books that I'm thankful for ^_^



1. Ruin and Rising (The Grisha Trilogy #3) by Leigh Bardugo (Review)

This should come as no surprise to anyone since you guys should know by now what a Bardugo fanatic that I am. Ruin and Rising is my #1 go-to book whenever I'm in a reading slump, I'm having a bad day, or I need inspiration. Not to mention that Ruin and Rising confirmed my top OTP of OTPs! This book beat out my longtime favorite book, Tryst by Elswyth Thane. To me, it's the perfect end to the most amazing trilogy, and is simply just perfect ^_^







2. The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye (Review)

I have been going on and on about this book ever since I was lucky enough to get my hands on it last year. Evelyn did what I wasn't sure could be done—a YA fantasy set in Russia that nails the language, culture, people, and food to perfection. It's an amazing book, and is now one of my all-time favorites.








3) Dreamology by Lucy Keating (Review)

Contemporaries are not usually my cup of tea. I normally find many of them to be melodramatic and predictable. This one exceeded all of my expectations and took me by complete surprise. As a romantic contemporary, Dreamology truly opened my eyes. Alice and Max's story makes my heart absolutely sing!








4) Delirium (Delirium #1) by Lauren Oliver (Review)

This book got me through one of the toughest times of my life. I fell in love with it before I ever became a blogger. Lauren Oliver's writing is gorgeous, and even though I have mixed feelings about the next two installments in the trilogy, my love for this book in particular will be everlasting. 








5) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

I was in the 4th grade when this story was read to my class during story time and instantly, I fell in love with it. The Harry Potter books were my gateway to the book world. Though I had loved books before, this is the first one that made me realize that I wasn't alone. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone helped me escape some rough aspects of my childhood. I will forever be indebted to this book and I will definitely read this series to my own kids when they're old enough. 



What are some books you're most thankful for? Have you read any on my list? If so, what did you think of them? Happy Thanksgiving, guys! <3

  1. Omg YES to The Crown's Game. <3 I love that book so much and I'm dying for the sequel so I have an excuse to re-read the first one. 😂 And Harry Potter is just a timeless piece of glory of course. Eeeep!! I'm really thankful I picked up The Hunger Games randomly from the library because it got me stuck on YA and then into blogging. So I can blame it for all my bookish addictions.😂

    ALSO YOUR BLOG IS SO BEAUTIFUL OMG. I ABSOLUTELY ADORE YOUR HEADER!!
