  1. There are some fantastic books on that list. The Girl with All the Gifts would probably make a lot of people’s because of the whole don’t read horror thing but it is so good. I keep trying to convince my bookclub to try it but may have mistakenly used the phrase zombie apocalypse πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you! Yeah, I can see why they would skip it with that phrasing. πŸ˜‰ I would! I only read it because Maggie Stiefvater recommended it on FB. I didn’t even know it was a zombie book!

    1. I highly recommend listening to it, if you can. Wil Wheaton does such a great job of bringing the story to life.

  2. Oh, yes, SoC. My daughter kept telling me to read it, but I am not a huge fantasy fan. I finally gave it, and WOW! I loved it! I really enjoyed Scoring Wilder, as well, but that is well within my go-to zone.

  3. Yay Six of Crows and The Bird and the Sword! I love both of those. I am surprised to see that R.S. Grey book on this list since it’s a sports romance. Is it because of the coach/player thing (I started, but never finished that book)?

    1. Yes, it’s because of the coach/player thing. Some of those are too student/teacher-y for me. This one worked because of the college setting, plus he wasn’t really a teacher.

    1. It’s really good! Have you read Amy Harmon before? I really think you would like her writing, if you haven’t.

    1. It was like a college soccer player and her coach. It was almost too much of a student-teacher type thing for me.

  4. Such a great list! So glad you enjoyed ready player one and I adore Six of crows πŸ˜€ I really want to read bird and the sword as well, so I’m glad you enjoyed it despite it being out your comfort zone!

  5. Scoring Wilder was out of your comfort zone?! I thought you read RS Grey all the time. Maybe I’m mistaken. I really enjoyed Red Queen and Six of Crows too. I used to read all fantasy and now I hardly ever read it. Strange how that switches for our reading tastes.
