I see so many books compared to other books, authors, or franchises in order to market them, so I thought it would be fun to take a look at those and see if the comparisons actually made sense! I've definitely read books where the comparisons I've seen make no sense.
As a note, these comparisons are pulled directly from reviews on the book. This means that people who just pick a book solely based on what they read about it on the book will see these comparisons as well.
Set in 1931, Freya has always felt out of place in her family, but she's also always dreamt of being an actress, so one day she decides to run away from home to London to pursue her dream.
Kyoshi is proven herself as the true Avatar, but external forces still threaten the peace and justice she is trying to maintain.
After stopping the threat of an invading queen, Naelin and Daleina must repair the damage left in the aftermath, until Naelin's children get kidnapped.
As the world is ending around her, Essun discovers that her husband has killed their son and kidnapped their daughter. Going out into a world of ash, she must track down the remnants of her family.
It seems so strange to me that books I've had on my TBR with a distant 2021 release date are actually just around the corner now! These are books being released from January through March! (All synopses come from Goodreads, and some are sequels, so they may contain spoilers)
Happy 2021! I have some updated goals for this year to share! I'm going to kind of keep these a little relaxed because I don't want to put too much pressure on myself and as 2020 showed us, you never know what is going to happen. I just want these to guide me, not confine me.
It's time for my book awards!! I had so much fun doing this last year, so I was really looking forward to doing it again this year! These are all based on my opinions and my overall thoughts on each book. Here's how I broke things up into categories:
1. 2020 releases
2. Best of each Genre
3. Miscellaneous awards (like saddest book)
Happy 2021!! I love doing end of the year/beginning of the year posts, and yearly stats are so interesting for me! I love a look into how and what I read. Here are all the books I read:
One of my favorite things about yearly goals is being able to look back and see how I did! I think there is a fine line between taking goals to seriously and not seriously enough (and it's different for everyone), but I think I did a pretty good job with it this year. Without further ado, here are the 2020 reading goals I set back in January!
