This year, a lot of authors released a lot of wonderful books for us to enjoy. So, after a difficult selection, I chose 5 of my favorite books that were published this year to share with you.
- “Queen of Air and Darkness” by Cassandra Clare
Of course, Cassie, one of my all time favorite authors, was going to be in this list. This is the las book of the trilogy “The Dark Artifices” that follows the story of Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn. However, a lot of other characters that we already know, appear in this book. Cassie just keeps expanding the Shadowhunters Chronicles and I can´t complain! I just want to throw her all my money!

- “Leah on the Offbeat” by Becky Albertalli
This year, Becky Albertalli, the author of the bestseller “Simon vs the Homo-Sapiens Agenda” published a new book that forms part of the “Simon-Verse”, follow Leah, Simon´s best friend that unlike Simon, her life is quite messy. In this book, she struggles with her sexuality and social anxiety. What I loved most about this book, is Leah because, she is very human, she has issues and she makes mistakes. In this novel, we´ll follow her and her friends that we already know (Simon, Bram, Abby, Nick).
- “The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy” by Mackenzie Lee
In this sequel to “The Gentleman´s Guide to Vice and Virtue” we follow the story of ambitious Felicity Montangue (Monty´s sister) in her path of trying to study medicine in a time where women had it quite difficult. Sincerely, I really enjoyed this book because it made me appreciate more the rights that I have as a women nowadays, and that we have to still fight for equality between sexes. Asides, I also laughed a lot with characters that I already knew and, also with some new characters.
- “The Trials of Apollo #3: The Burning Maze” by Rick Riordan
It´s uncle Rick again ladies and gentlemen! This time, he gifted us with the third book of the series “The Trials of Apollo” that follow Lester Papadopoulos AKA: Apollo and mortal Meg McCaffrey, in their quest to free five oracles of Ancient Greece from Triumvirate Holdings a group of three evil Roman Emperors , in order to regain Apollo´s immortality. I´d be lying if I said that I didn’t cry in this book really, however, I also laughed a lot. Something that I´ve been noticing, is that in each book, the story gets darker.
- “The Land I Lost” by Cassandra Clare
It´s Cassie again! What else can I say! That woman writes pretty fast (not that I´m complaining Cassie please keep writing) This novella tells the story that we were all expecting: how Alec and Magnus adopted Rafael Santiago in Argentina? I loved it, my #Malec heart was so happy! This book forms part of the compilation of novellas “Ghosts of the Shadow Market: An Anthology of Tales” that will be released on June 4th 2019.
