This week Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm gave a topic of Top 5 Surprising Reads Of 2019. This have been another year of re-reading old favorites, so like 1/3 of the books I’ve read couldn’t surprise me since I had already read them before.
I absolutely love Cassandra Clare books but I never planned reading this series because it has friends to lovers trope but since I’ve started to like some book featuring that trope I decided to finally give this series a chance. I still haven’t started the second book and I wasn’t big fan of that relationship but I did love all the family dynamics and even the beginning of love triangle. No writer besides Cassandra Clare can make me like love triangle.
My expectations for this series wasn’t very high but fellow blogger suggested I give it a chance since I was seriously craving more book featuring sexy demons and this become one of my favorite series! It doesn’t only have sexy male demon but Knox’s love interest Harper is also a kick ass demon who shouldn’t be messed with. I rarely love heroine as much as I loved the one in this one.
I had my doubts when starting this book. I haven’t really read many books (at least that I remember) featuring runaway brides but I decided to give this one a chance even though it was pretty cliche. I didn’t only enjoy the romance a lot more than I thought but I also really enjoyed Sebastian’s relationship with his many brothers.
I’m pretty used to not enjoying freebies as much as I think I would after reading synopsis but this one made me even want to order the sequel, which I would’ve done if I didn’t find said sequel’s price too high.
This series and it’s spin off was the biggest surprise for me. Many of my twitter friends were suggesting me to read this one but one paperback is like 20€ while some other books are much cheaper. Also friends to lovers trope AND addictions? I was sure that it wasn’t for me but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I saw Addicted To You as a free kindle book in Amazon and decided to try it and I’m so happy I did. You can read my review for the first book here.
What books surprised you this year? Have you read any of these?
