Best of the Decade

Best of the Decade: February

Hi everyone! I’m back with February’s Best of the Decade! I saw this on FangirlFlax’s blog and thought it was such a fun idea. Mine won’t quite be best of the decade but that sounds better than best of seven/eight years!

Unfortunately, I didn’t have Goodreads before March 2013 so I will be going from February 2014 until February 2020 and voting on which book was my favourite of that month, and then deciding on an overall winner! I’m excited for this trip down memory lane as I have no idea what I was reading in February last year let alone years ago!


2014

My documentation in 2014 is awful but I believe this is what I read:

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley (for school)

My favourite out of these is definitely The Fault in Our Stars!

The Fault in Our Stars

2015

The documentation for February 2015 is also a bit off but I think this is what I read!:

The Kill Order by James Dashner

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

As I didn’t like The Kill Order as much as the other Maze Runner books, this year’s winner is City of Fallen Angels!

City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, #4)

2016

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

I think 2016 was the first year I discovered the Throne of Glass books and fell in love with them! Therefore, my winner has got to be Queen of Shadows. Although, I do feel a bit mean as I loved Second Chance Summer too!

Queen of Shadows (Throne of Glass, #4)

2017

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare

An Illustrated History of Notable Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld by Cassandra Clare and Cassandra Jean

The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

The Next Together by Lauren James

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy destroyed me, but I think Heartless did more, so that is 2017’s winner!

Heartless

2018

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

Frost Blood by Elly Blake

Fire Blood by Elly Blake

My winner for this has to be Frostblood, I adore that trilogy and it does not get the recognition it deserves!

Frostblood (Frostblood Saga #1)

2019

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas

What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera

The 100 by Kass Morgan

The 100: Day 21 by Kass Morgan

The 100: Homecoming by Kass Morgan

I wasn’t a big fan of The 100 books and I think the show is so much better. But this is hard because I want to say Kingdom of Ash but I really enjoyed What If It’s Us so I feel like I’m picking favourites! My heart is telling me to choose Kingdom of Ash!

Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass, #7)

2020

A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer

This is the only book I finished in 2020 so A Heart So Fierce and Broken is winner by default!

A Heart So Fierce and Broken (Cursebreakers, #2)

I’m very conscious that Empire of Storms won by January favourite, so I want to try and mix it up for February! I would give it to Queen of Shadows, but for the sake of being different, my February book of the decade is…

Heartless

Heartless is the best of February!


This post has made me want to reread every book I own again! Would you rank my choices differently? And are any of your favourites in my lists?

Keep reading,

  1. I’m ruthlessly thrown back to childhood when I see those original Shadowhunter covers 😅 Also wild to think that Kingdom of Ash was already two years ago…can’t believe it!

  2. Fun tag! And your choices are great! I love the ToG series and basically anything SJM writes. lol And I haven’t read of Frost Blood, but it sounds really intriguing! I just added it to my TBR. 🙂

      1. I love looking back on what I read, too! If I’m able to go back through my bookshelves, I hope to try this out for March..and if not, then maybe April…One day, it will be done haha

    1. Personally I read it in publication dates I think. I had no idea there were four ways to read them! I read City of Bones to City of Ashes then the Infernal Devices trilogy and then the last three books of The Mortal Instruments. At least I think I did this, I also may have read the Infernal Devices right before City of Heavenly Fire, but I think they fit better in the middle of the series if that makes sense!

  3. I loved this post, it’s got me feeling all nostalgic! I love SJM so much but I’m glad you picked Heartless, it’s such a great read! I haven’t read Frost Blood yet but there’s no way I’m not adding it to my TBR after reading it’s synopsis! 🥰✨

    1. Yeah, I didn’t want SJM to take the top spot every month as I fear it may do! So now that I already have Empire of Storms for January, hopefully the other months I can pick slightly different books!
      Yes Frostblood is so good, I hope you enjoy it!

  4. This is such a cool and fun idea! Unfortunately, I didn’t become consistent in recording my reads until like 3 years ago so I’m not even gonna attempt this, haha. Admittedly, the only books I’ve read here are The Kill Order, The Fault in Our Stars, and Frankenstein, none of which were particularly favorites of mine. I do need to pick up Heartless eventually though.
