Theme = Top 5 surprising reads of 2019

These books I didn’t have on my radar to read. Most of them came in my Fairyloot box or I just fancied something I didn’t normally read…..


A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

I’m not really one for a retelling but this one grabbed me, sucked me in and spat me out one happy woman!

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

The first sci-fi book on my list. I have never read sci-fi before, for no particular reason other than I just haven’t, but I absolutely LOVED this book! I have Starsight too and am hoping to read before the end of the year.


Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin


I saw a few people scoffing about the romance in this but romance is my thing….


Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

I loved An Enchantement of Ravens and when I read the blurb about the great library I was excited. And this totally lived up to my excitement.


Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff

My 2nd scifi book! I’ve only got into Jay Kristoff this year really so before I read the Nevernight trilogy I thought I would check this out….and I fell in love with his writing style. I have zero regrets!


What books would be on your list?
