Here we are, for the last day of the Bout of Books 14 Read-a-thon.

Today’s challenge is hosted by Sarah Reads too Much and this is the challenge:

For this Challenge, you need to recommend 3 books (and only 3 books) that you have read this year that you think should be recognized as something great – something everyone should have on their TBR list for this fall.  If you can, say a short little something about why you recommend these books.

I’m going for 3 books that not only did I read this year, but that also came out this year, from 3 different genres.

Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

I can’t praise this book enough. Everyone should read it, because not only does it has diverse characters and deals with issues of homosexuality and acceptance, but does it in a fun and light way, so that’s impossible not to have a smile on your face and fall in love with the characters.

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

77493_originalThis New Adult Fantasy novel is just amazing. It’s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast done in a most wonderful way. Sarah J. Maas is a master with her words and world building, and this book will leave you wanting for more. More story, more of the characters, more everything.

YOU’RE NEVER WEIRD ON THE INTERNET (ALMOST) by FELICIA DAY

This book, wow, all the love for this book. Felicia Day, the “Queen of the Geeks” pours her story, hard work and soul into this book, and the result is amazing. I loved to get to know her, I have a newfound respect for her and this is such an inspiring and acceptance driven book… you should read it.

Bout of Books 14: Road Trip Challenge

Hello! It’s day 6 of the Bout of Books 14 Read-a-thon, meaning, just one more day! Yesterday I didn’t participate in the challenge, because it involved shipping people from different books, and I find it so hard to do that, I’ve been putting off doing the Rip it or Ship it book tag because of it.  But that’s ok!

Today’s challenge is a bit more manageable, the Road Trip Challenge, hosted by Steph in Wonderland. “For this challenge, I’d like for you to come up with a list of the top 4-5 states/places you’d love to visit and find a book (you either read or want to read) that takes place in that state/place or a book by an author who lives or is from there. :]

Because this felt somewhat similar to the challenge from day 1, I decided to use TBR books for this one, and mark a real possible road trip, starting from Barcelona, where I live… so, here it is.

I’ve also started my third book, Shatter Me, today! Finished The Wrath and the Dawn yesterday evening and I’m still a bit hungover by it, such a stunning book, such heartbreak 😦 …
