  1. I love this! You should post this in Book Nerd FB group and maybe we can get some of them to post their faves for the year, too 🙂
    Also, Circe is on my nightstand already, just waiting to slot it in between book club books, and I’m really regretting not getting Not That I Could Tell as my BOTM book…

  3. Ahh congrats on being so on top of you reading challenge!! 🙂 I’m so sorry you were disappointed by The Hazel Wood. :/ I’ve heard so many good things about it, but I’m a bit hesitant to read it myself.

    But ahh, Circe is so gorgeous inside and out, and it’s my pick for most beautiful book as well! Same for Muse of Nightmares, I can’t wait to have it in my hands. 💓
