Best of the Decade

Best of the Decade: June

Hey everyone! This is June’s best of the decade post and I’m excited to go through and see what books I read in June over the last few years!

Unfortunately, I didn’t have Goodreads before March 2013 so I will be going from 2014 until 2020 and voting on which book was my favourite of that month, and then deciding on an overall winner!


2014

The Sword of Hades by Rick Riordan

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan

The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan

The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan

Clearly June 2014 was all about Percy Jackson, I honestly barely remember these books but I’ll say my favourite is The Last Olympian.

The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #5)

2015

The Viscount’s Daughter by Caitlyn Duffy

I think by default, the top book has to be The Viscount’s Daughter.

The Viscount's Daughter (Treadwell Academy #3)

2016

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

The Last Star by Rick Yancey

21 Proms by 21 Authors

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I adore ACOTAR but I really enjoyed The 5th Wave so I think that will have to be my choice for 2016!

The 5th Wave (The 5th Wave, #1)

2017

United As One by Pittacus Lore

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare

The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

This is a tricky one, I adore Lady Midnight and Lord of Shadows but United as One was such a good conclusion to the series. That being said I think Lady Midnight is my fave!

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, #1)

2018

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Simon Vs the Homosapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Leah on the Off Beat by Becky Albertalli

I Have Lost My Way by Gayle Forman

Not If I Save You First by Ally Carter

Save the Date by Morgan Matson

Ahh so many good books were read in June 2018! I adore so many of these and this is a hard decision but I think my favourite is Not If I Save You First.

Not If I Save You First

2019

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han

It’s Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han

Frostblood by Elly Blake

Fireblood by Elly Blake

Nightblood by Elly Blake

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

The Beholder by Anna Bright

Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

This list of books is ridiculous! There are so many of my favourites in this list. I’m torn between Forstblood and Anna and the French Kiss so I think it may have to be a tie for this month!

2020

Wonderwoman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas

Superman: Dawnbreaker by Matt de la Pena

This Book is Anti-Racist by Tiffany Jewell

Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian

I think my favourite book out of these was Ash Princess! Although I really do recommend reading This Book is Anti-Racist!

Ash Princess (Ash Princess Trilogy #1)

There are so many good books from the month of June, but I think I’m going to have to give my book of the month to…

Anna and the French Kiss is a massive comfort book for me. I adore the whole trilogy and it always reminds me of summer. Definitely one of my favourite YA romance books!

Have you read any of these books and would you have made different decisions to me?

Keep reading,

  1. I adored The Last Olympian (reread the PJO series last year and it’s like a warm hug). I haven’t read Anna and the French Kiss but I’ve heard good things, I’ll have to check it out.
