It’s Christmas Day, I’ve been sick but I wanted to prepare something to post today! Here’s 5 books I’m thankful for.

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games was the first book I really remember connecting with. I loved that Katniss was unafraid to be herself, wasn’t great at making friends, and was more concerned with survival and protecting those she loved that the romance she was oblivious to. I found a lot of myself as Katniss and this first book was an opening into her world.

2. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Another book and series I really connected with! I loved this fantasy young adult series and continue to look forward to Shadowhunter Chronicles.

3. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

This was the first major ARC I got access to, and at such a young blog age it was truly an honour. I enjoyed the world building, narrative and all aspects of Nevernight immensely.

4. The Assassins Apprentice by Robin Hobb

Robin Hobb can be easily compared to George R R Martin, in the sense of writing epic fantasy novels, but I find her style preferable by far: description rich, her characters go to hell and back, with an immersive level of detail.

5. Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

I was introduced to this series by my Dad, and I’ve been a fan ever since. I hope to be reading a subsequent book in the series, The Hanging Tree, soon! I’m grateful for the Rivers of London series for bringing together urban fantasy, the British sense of humour, and London – the city in which I live.

Can you name five books you’re grateful for? What would your top picks be? Have any thoughts about my choices? Let me know in the comments!

    • Thank you! London is definitely a great city (but then I’m biased, haha) – I’m going to miss living here once I move away for uni next year.
