Hey everyone, long time no see!
This year I got into reading again and I wanted to write a new article so bad as well, so I thought why not bring it together?
So for this arcticle I will introduce you to some of the books I have read so far this year and give my personal rating.

Hope you enjoy <3

This book got me into reading again!! I loved Owens writing, the way she could make you feel like you were wandering through the swamps and taking in the nature around you. The characters were beautiful, I was obsessed with Kya, her life etc. and don't get me started about Tate. I am extremely hyped for the movie to come out next year!! Rating: 9/10

I loved it, but I feel like I didn't appreciate it as much as I should've when I finished it so I might re-read it soon. I loved Patroclus SO much. And one of the best last lines I have ever read. I get the hype! Rating: 8.5/10

I really enjoyed this book! It wasn't overwhelming, but amazing writing! I loved Marianne so much, one of my favorite characters ever. The relationship between Connell and Marianne was very captivating, I didn't really like the ending though...felt a bit abrupt. Rating: 8/10

I cried, I laughed, I cried and the cried some more. And never cried so hard because of a book... One of the best young adult books to ever exist! The writing makes you feel so close to the story and the characters you'd think you're in the book yourself. Apropos characters, I LOVED them all. Even have a small crush on Johnny I must admit. The plot twist, the atmosphere, everything is just right in this book. One of my favorites for sure. If you haven't read it yet...WHAT ARE YOU DOING? Rating: 10/10

This is a simple but really enjoyable book. It didn't blew me off my feet, but the story is clever and makes you riddle here and there. I just couldn't really get warm with the characters :( If you like a well-written high school story including love, drama and murder, this one's for you! Rating: 7.5/10

A nice and fast read. I loved the overall atmosphere that this book put me in and the storytelling. Also, I liked that they put sketches in the book, they made it feel so much more real. Conor is a lovely character. And the moral of this book is fantastic. However, I was a little disappointed by the ending...What else I can say is that the book is definitely better than the movie! Rating: 8/10

A lovely and intense story/journey. I loved the overall style and aesthetic of this book. Evelyn is one of my favorite characters for sure! And Taylor of one my favorite authors. Amazing book <3 Rating: 9/10

Another one by Taylor...another AMAZING book! I was so invested in the story and the characters lives, I couldn't put it down. Nina, once again a perfect protagonist. Ugh, I love Reid Women! After I finished it i wanted to learn how to surf, get rich and live in Malibu. I think that says it all. Rating: 10/10

Wow! And this is a debut novel!! I loved it with my whole heart even though it was such a sad story (but it made me smile too often enough). Shuggie has my whole heart. This was a perfect realistic story of what it's like growing up with an alcoholic mother. Amazinggg :( Rating: 10/10

My god! What a book...This was hard to read, but a fantastic book. Yanagiharas writing is one of the best I have ever come across. So real and deep. But I should warn you, it's not for everyone and can be an easy trigger for many people. For me, it was tragic and beautiful at the same time. Jude and Willem, it hurts to even think about them. One of the best books to ever exist imo. I definitely need to read it again soon to fully digest all of it. Unforgettable. Rating: 10/10
