Bianca Sparacino

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Seeds Planted in Concrete by Bianca Sparacino was my book into poetry. I only knew the poetry you read at school and I wasn’t really interested and actually didn’t know how popular poetry is even nowadays.

Couldn’t live without it now!

number four

P E R I L  A T  E N D  H O U S E

Agatha Christie

I’ve always loved Sherlock Holmes, so it’s actually no surprise I fell in love with Agatha Christie’s storys. Hercule Poirot and Arthur Hastings are amazing characters, so funny and genuine. Peril at End House was a perfect start into the Agatha Christie world! Can’t wait to read more!

number three

Colleen Hoover

I read EIGHT Colleen Hoover books this year. Yep. You could say I am obsessed. I think It Ends With Us was one of my favorites. I loved the characters and the storyline. The topic it was about is so important and I like how Colleen Hoover worked with it.

A must-read for me!

number two

Elena Favilli & Francesca Cavallo

Perfect. That’s the only word I can describe this book with. Okay, maybe two: Perfect and Perfection. Really. It is the most gorgeous book I’ve ever seen. With it’s illustrations, the little texts and quotes of Rebel Girls. I seriously can’t wait to hold it in my hands again when I am back home.

You can find my review of Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo right here.

(Also: My Italian Class and me gave this book as a present to our beloved Italian teacher as a thank-you. She loved it a lot!)

number one

Jennifer L. Armentrout

My number one, of course. This book moved me so so much. I am SO in love. Mallory is like me. Exactly. I could relate to her and that made me so so happy. I’ve never experienced it with another book before.

Please, go read it. You will not regret it. I promise.
