A few weeks ago, I posted a snap of the three 5-star reads I’d accomplished in June, and lots of my bookstagram community remarked how lucky I was to have read three great books that month. And then I realised that, actually, it’s been an incredible year for reading so far too. I am both planned and unplanned towards my reading: on one hand, I like to make a general list to tick off some backlist and upcoming titles, and on the other, I can’t resist grabbing a book that looks beautiful! This has had a pretty good effect on my reading year, as I’ve discovered some incredible books and authors to keep an eye out for.

I’ve listed these by month, so you can head back to the relevant post to find its mini review…
