This week’s prompt is a Thanksgiving/Thankful freebie and like last year, I am going over the books of this year that have made me so grateful to be able to read them! Here they are, in no particular order:
Thank you for being a book filled with Slytherins being the best at their ambitions, whatever they may be! I do love morally ambigious characters a lot, and you were full of them, and you brightened the start of my year with it!
Thank you for letting me deal with my anxiety regarding spin-offs! Also for proving you can still find ways to surprise a reader in a spin-off with new things in the world. Also thanks for exposing Declan in all his complicated quirks. Sorry, I will write a review for you soon!
Thanks for being such a good conclusion to an awesome journey and for giving all my babies good endings. You were amazing in your twists and keeping me all keyed up while reading – I enjoy anxiety when it doesn’t come from me, lol.
Thanks for breaking my heart that way. Thanks for containing in yourself the complicated longing of a place that you can’t be at, but where you fit so well. Thanks for showing that cold logic doesn’t always mean there is no place for warmth.
Thanks for giving me an intense romance, without veering into toxic territory. Thanks for dreaming big expanses, so I could also dream along with you. And you were so wonderfully unique in your composition, you are one of the best books I read this year, even in your small package.
And finally, thanks for being this complicated exploration of war and magic, and grief and trauma. Reading you was hard at times, but I can’t deny the power you had, and how you brought forth difficult conversations.
What are you thankful for this year?
