Books I Read # 5

This was the wrap up of my 2020 book goal! I ended the year with 21 books in 2020. Most exciting, I found a new favorite book of all time (hint hint – check the pictures). If you’re interested in parts 1-4 of what I read this year, here they are:

Post 1, Post 2, Post 3, Post 4

So, without further ado, here are books 18-21

Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon

Grade: C

Flight of Dreams is a love story set on the doomed Hindenburg Zeppelin. Knowing full well that Titanic is one of my favorite movies of all time, this story definitely had that sort of vibe. Maybe it’s because, in my mind, no one can hold a candle to Leo, but this one fell flat. It was ok overall, but it took FOREVER for me to sit down and finish it. I would recommend this if you love a slow build, slow burn love story. For me, personally, I need a little more action.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab

Grade: A+

This book is pure magic. It has such a unique premise (Addie LaRue can live as long as she wants, but no one will ever remember her), and is beautifully written. I laughed, I cried, and I fully recommend this book with my whole heart to anyone who wants a little bit of fantasy with their morning coffee. I can’t wait to read more by this author.

A Rogue of One’s Own by Evie Dunmore

Grade: A-

This is the second book in the League of Extraordinary Women Series, and it definitely held up! Lady Lucie is helping the suffragist movement at Oxford and fighting to gain control of a major publishing house in London. She finally does, but finds out the co-owner is her childhood nemesis, Lord Ballentine (well known rogue). GUYS. This book is STEAMY. And also has a great storyline. I would definitely recommend if you recently watched Bridgerton and loved it 🙂

The Space Between Worlds by Micaiah Johnson

Grade: F

Woof. I love a good sci-fi book, but this one completely missed the mark for me. In a future time, travel between worlds (called traversing) has become possible – as long as you’re not also alive on the world you’re traveling to. Cara has died on more than 250 earths, so she is a great candidate for traversing. Eventually, one of her trips becomes much more involved than she thought it would and it leads to unexpected complications on her home Earth. Pros? The world was very well written. It felt like I was there. Cons? I didn’t really feel for any of the characters. I didn’t want them to win or succeed. I didn’t care about their plight. So….I would not personally recommend this one.
