Between 1st January 2021 until 30th June 2021, I’ve read and reviewed 51 books (25k pages).
Please read this first. There will be three rules I set in this list in order for me to give appreciation to more authors rather than having only a few authors hoarding this list. These rules allow me to highlight more authors, and at the same time, I’ll also be able to include both new and older books (many of them still need attention) that I read within this year.
Rereads aren’t included.
One book per author.
The books listed here are not all exclusively published this year; the list consists of the top books I read for the first time within this year. Non-2021 published books on this list will have their first date of publication included.
Do note that although there’s a rank to this list, I HIGHLY recommend every book/series listed below because I loved all of them immensely, and they received a rating of 4.5 or 5 out of 5 stars from me. Without further ado, here are the top 10 books I’ve read this year so far! (All full reviews of the books listed can be found on Novel Notions and my Goodreads page.) …
Today, we’re here to bring you a gorgeous cover reveal of Assassin by Andy Peloquin. I honestly haven’t read any books by Peloquin yet, but from being active on bookish social media, I know that he’s one of the most prolific authors out there! I’m honored that Andy Peloquin chose Novel Notions to be the one to do the cover reveal of Assassin. To make things even better, the author gave us his reason to republish his series with a new cover art, his inspiration behind the series, and also a detailed cover art process! This is something that interests me so much, but I know that it’s not for everyone; if you just want to see the cover art, feel free to scroll to the bottom of this blog post. Let me know what you think of the cover art and whether this series interests you or not! Without further ado, here’s my interview with Andy Peloquin, and the cover reveal to Assassin!
Petrik and Eon here, we’ll keep this introduction brief. We’re so excited that we get to be the second-in-line to host the read-along event for A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie. It’s truly an honor for both of us to be given this opportunity, especially because Joe Abercrombie’s books are some of our favorite books of all time. Today, we’ll be discussing Chapter 10-18 of A Little Hatred. There will be heavy spoilers for these chapters, so if you haven’t read the book, please go read them first! …
