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!
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 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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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!
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 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?
