One of the best world building wise and and when it came to character interactions. Soulswift had to make the list.
Skyhunter is on the list for the same reason as Soulswift it’s a great thriller with wonderful worldbuilding and great character banter.
One of the best written portrayals of OCD I’ve seen. Elly Swartz did an excellent job hence why she’s on the list.
4)On the Edge of Gone
Important novel about who is worth saving at the end of the world from the perspective of an autistic person. Love seeing autism in print plus this is an important question, hence why it’s on the list.
5) The Last 8
Are you wondering if I like dystopian novels, well a little, however this is on the list due to its ace representation. The main character Clover is ace.
6) Before I Let Go
Another book that is on the list for its ace rep, the main character Corey is ace while several of the other characters are also LGBTQ.
7) Summer and July
Now that we’ve covered the books that are serious and important for different reason we’ll cover the one’s I just really liked. Summer and July was a sweet story of two girls falling in love, one learning confidence and one letting go of some of her grief. So sweet. Totally one of my favorite of the summer.
8) Midsummer’s Mayhem
I just found this book delightful and I’m not even a Shakespeare fan. Maybe it’s because I love the cute baking sub-genre that’s in middle grade books.
9)Measuring Up Book
Another cute cooking/baking sub-genre book that I loved.
10) Unwanted: Dragon Quests
Can I favorite a whole series of books I’m making this list so I’m going to say I can. I really enjoyed the whole series and can’t wait till it wraps up in February. I’ll probably spend January getting back to reviewing it. Anyway it, and the series previous to it are some of my faves so they have to get a shoutout. I’m linking to the first book in the series below.
11) A Home for Goddesses and Dogs
Just another sweet book about a girl being brought in by her two aunts after her mother has passed and learning open up and make friends.
12) Once Upon an Eid: Stories of Hope and Joy by 15 Muslim Voices
Once Upon an Eid has to claim the last spot it’s the most sweet and joyous book I’ve read in ages.
