2019 has been an amazing year for books! I have definitely suffered from many book hangovers this year! Below, are just some of the books that left me hung-the-F-over!

Verity

I read this book before the hype so I went in with very open expectations. Being my 3rd Hoover book, I was optimistic. It ended up turning my world upside down. I didn't care about eating or sleeping while reading this one! Verity was Life now!

Daisy Jones & The Six

Another one I read before the hype-storm. This book seemed to be an either 'love it or hate it' read for people. I LOVED it. I devoured it and became so invested in the characters. Like the band, I was left with a major hangover after this one. 

The Perfect Child

This is still one of my most recommended books this year! 

The Grief Keeper

One of my favourite Young Adult books this year. It was such a beautiful, relevant and unique read. 

The Friend Zone

READ THIS BOOK NOW!!!

The Whisper Man

READ THIS BOOK AFTER THE OTHER BOOK!!!

Recursion

The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell

One of the most beautiful life stories I have ever read!

In the early 1900s, a young woman embarks on a fantastical journey of self-discovery after finding a mysterious book in this captivating and lyrical debut.
In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place.Then she finds a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page turn reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own.
“How fitting, that the most terrifying time in my life should require me to do what I do best: escape into a book.” 

There are Ten Thousand and One things I want to say about this book but yet, I am left utterly speechless. I can say, without a doubt, that this is the most unique story I have ever read. The Ten Thousand Doors of January is a fantastical, tug-on-your-heart-strings journey. It is so intelligently written and went far beyond any expectations I had for it. 

The Ten Thousand Doors of January is a book that will tap itself into your very core. The child still living within you who's imagination is still running free, untainted, this book awakens that part of you. The world's, portals and characters came alive vividly, the words leaping off of the pages. It truly is a whimsical reading experience; as if the author cast her very own spell within the pages, creating a magical tale that will come to life before you, and stay with you long after you've finished. 

I am still awestruck. This is one of those books that one can go on and on about, but you will never truly grasp the extraordinary beauty of its story until you experience it on your own. A truly beautiful and heartening read that will leave you stirring. I miss it already.
