Another year just flew by! It was my big YA debut year, too, and although I don’t feel like my life has changed drastically, I’ve been floored by the readers who’ve taken the time to reach out to me–thank you! I hope it’s just the start of a longer book writing career.
The past couple of years, I’ve posted a list of all the books I read (not including graphic novels and manga, of which I’ve read many) on this blog to celebrate New Year’s. Why do I do this and not post every book I read on Goodreads? I feel weird publicly assigning grades and criticizing other people’s novels as an author, especially since if I don’t love something, it might just be my own tastes, you know? This is a way for me to celebrate how much I’ve read each year.

I adored “Sic of Crows”. Still haven’t read the Raven Cycle my Maggi Stiefvater, but it’s on my list 😀
Definitely check out Raven Cycle! Since the last book is almost out, you can marathon them all at once. Six of Crows was a bit slow for me at first, but I’m about halfway through and it’s really picking up speed!
Aaaaand, the Raven Cycle just got bumped up higher on the list. I smell a book purchase in January 🙂
You won’t regret it!
