Hello everyone! Back in 2020, I manage to read a total of 65 books, and more than half of them (46 books, to be exact) are by authors whose books I’ve never read before. So today, I’m going to feature 10 new favorite authors that I discovered in 2020. This is honestly harder than it sounds since I read lots of great books last year (in fact, I think 2020 is my best reading year so far!), but I manage to narrow it down to 10 authors. Without further ado, here they are :
1. R.F. Kuang Book(s) read : 3 (The Poppy War, The Dragon Republic, The Burning God) Given that The Poppy War trilogy is my favorite series in 2020, I think she deserves the #1 spot in this list. I’ve never been more glad to pick up a book, since I learn so much about my own history and ancestry through this series. I’m definitely going to re-read TPW again this year!
Can you believe that 2020 will be over in 16 days? Despite being my (and probably everyone) worst year, I read way more compared to the previous years and discovered lots of great books, so there’s that. Anyway, before we dive into my Winter TBR list, let’s take a look at my Fall TBR and see how well I stick to my own list :
In Fall, I planned to read these books : 1. The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang ✔️ 2. Jade City by Fonda Lee ✔️ 3. Jade War by Fonda Lee ❌ 4. Kingdom of the Wicked by Kerri Maniscalco ✔️ 5. These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong ✔️ 6. Loveless by Alice Oseman ❌ 7. The Burning God by R.F. Kuang ✔️
Considering I usually only read like, 2 books from my list, 5 out of 7 books is my best record so far!
Hi everyone! It’s time for another seasonal TBR list. I honestly can’t believe time pass so quickly, it feels like I just wrote my summer TBR list a few days ago. Anyway, before we dive into my fall TBR, let’s take a look at my summer TBR, shall we?
In summer, I plan to read these books : 1. Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin ✔️ 2. Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles ✔️ 3. More than Maybe by Erin Hahn ✔️ 4. Wicked Fox by Kat Cho ❌ 5. The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu ❌ 6. Caraval & Legendary by Stephanie Garber ❌ Continue reading “Tiffany’s Fall 2020 TBR”→
it’s a truth universally acknowledged that writing a review for books you love is much, much harder than writing a review for books you dislike. because of this, i have A LOT of books that are amazing, but i never wrote a review for it. so for today’s TTT, here are 10 books i love but never reviewed :
1. the shadows between us by tricia levenseller
if you’re looking for books with morally-grey characters (also with morally-grey love interest!!!), please pick up this book! this is such a great book and i really wish it’s not a stand-alone since i can’t get enough of it.
2. don’t date rosa santos by nina moreno
everything about this book is just so beautiful–from the story to the setting ❤ the main character, rosa santos, is cuban-american, so this book is focused on living as diaspora. as a diaspora myself (although from a different culture), i could relate on personal level with this book, and that’s why i really love it!
hi everyone! for today’s top ten tuesday topic, i’m going to talk about authors whose works i’ve read the most. i’ve actually talked about this around 1.5 years ago, but i only list 5 authors back then so i’m going to add more here. this is actually a fun way to keep track on my favorites, so here we go :
1. Rick Riordan – 19 books
it’s no surprise that Rick’s still number one, seeing that i’m basically obsessed with percy jackson since i was like 12 or 13 years old. now, 8 years later, i’ve read a total of 19 books by him (some of them i’ve read multiple times) :
hi everyone! for today’s TTT topic, i’m going to list 10 upcoming 2020 books that i can’t wait to read. i just checked my goodreads and turns out i’ve already read 13 books (out of 32) that’s published in 2020 so far, so hopefully the number will add up. without further ado, here are the books :
i’ve been waiting for this book basically since it was announced because aro/ace rep!!
Georgia has never been in love, never kissed anyone, never even had a crush – but as a fanfic-obsessed romantic she’s sure she’ll find her person one day.As she starts university with her best friends, Pip and Jason, in a whole new town far from home, Georgia’s ready to find romance, and with her outgoing roommate on her side and a place in the Shakespeare Society, her ‘teenage dream’ is in sight.
But when her romance plan wreaks havoc amongst her friends, Georgia ends up in her own comedy of errors, and she starts to question why love seems so easy for other people but not for her. With new terms thrown at her – asexual, aromantic – Georgia is more uncertain about her feelings than ever.
Is she destined to remain loveless? Or has she been looking for the wrong thing all along?
it’s a truth universally acknowledged that i’m terrible at sticking to my own TBR list. i just check my spring TBR list, and out of 10 books i listed, i’ve only read two! still, i love making TBR list, and hopefully i’ll actually read them since it’s summer holiday. anyway, here’s some books i plan to read during summer :
serpent & dove (serpent & dove #1) by shelby mahurin
i’ve actually started this one last night and so far it’s pretty great, though the world-building confuse me a little? i’m mostly looking forward to the hate-to-love/fake-marriage romance though, which is my favorite combination 😉
where dreams descend (kingdom of cards #1) by janella angeles
firstly, can we talk about THIS GORGEOUS COVER?? secondly, it’s set in circus, which made this book more magical. thirdly, i’m lucky enough to get an e-arc of this one, so i definitely will read it during summer.
hi everyone! hope you have a great day despite the pandemic going on. for today TTT’s topic, i’m going to write 10 most iconic opening lines, that i remember it and could tell which book it was from even if i haven’t read said books in a long time. there’s just something interesting and catchy with these lines. without further ado, here they are :
this week’s topic is books i rarely talk about in my blog, and not surprisingly, i have lots of books that fit into this category because apparently i like to talk about the same book over and over again. anyway, here’s some books that i love but never/rarely made an appearance in here :
her royal highness by rachel hawkins this is the spin-off to royals (or prince charming), and it’s basically a sapphic love story set in a boarding school! this book gave me a lot of of wild child vibes, which is one of my favorite movie. oh, and did i mention it’s also a hate-to -love story?
letters to the lost by brigid kemmerer i recently read this one (which is probably why i haven’t talk about it in my blog), and it’s wonderful. this book mostly deals with grief, but brigid’s writing is beautiful that i can’t help but loving this book.
hi everyone! for today’s topic, we’re gonna talk about some reasons why i bought books. since i live internationally (where library didn’t exist!), i don’t have the luxury to buy any books that i want. so, i mostly buy books based on its plot and the review from fellow bloggers who have similar taste with me. that’s why, below i’ll talk about reasons beside plot that made me buy a book :
pretty much i bought every book that’s published after the infernal devices because apparently, i’m a trash for this series. the funny thing is, i haven’t even read the series that start it all, the mortal instruments (except city of bones).
