  1. I also read Caraval this year, and I personally enjoyed it, but I know many didn’t. Which side did you fall on?

    I’ve also read Red Queen (I wasn’t a fan) and Me Before You (I was a fan).

    Many of the books you read this year are on my TBR though, particularly Illuminae, When Breath Becomes Air, Cinder, and The Letters to the Lost. Maybe I’ll get to one of them this year?

    Happy reading in 2018!

    • I was honestly really disappointed with Caraval. I wanted to like it so badly and it fell short. I do want to read the next one though. I feel like the world has so much potential!
      I really enjoyed Red Queen and the sequels (sorry to hear that you weren’t! I’ve heard that from a lot of people), and Me Before You was pretty good too (although I did kind of like the movie better).
      I really hope you enjoy the other books!! I loved Letters to the Lost so much! It’s one of my all time favorites now. The other three are really good as well.
      Happy reading to you too!!!
