III: she is my favorite.

“Oh, she’s my favourite girl, yes she is, yes she is!”

Carolyn arrived home to the sound of Arthur singing: a familiar, if unwelcome racket. 

“Which is something that we don’t tell Tiffy, no we don’t, no we don’t!”

She walked through to the living room to find him bouncing the youngest Liechtensteinian princess up and down on his knee, her rose-pink baby blanket lying discarded on the sofa next to him.

“’Cause she might get confused and think – oh, hi, Mum!”

“Hello.” Carolyn looked around. “Is Martin here?” 

“No! I’m baby-sitting!”

“Good heavens, the trust that boy has.”

  • fanon holtzmann: smooth 24/7, Sex God, knows exactly what to say and it is hilarious, makes you gay even if you Don't Want That, fashion icon, seriously though look at her for one second and You're Gay, she planned all of this to work perfectly
  • canon holtzmann: certifiably Bad™ at feelings, has no idea. about anything that's happening. ever, fashion disaster, science is her safe place, literally lies down on the ground and hides from confrontation, trash girl, never paid for a thing in her life

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience:                                                this is the ideal life.”

There have been times this year where books felt unnecessary due to the increasingly familiar dystopian aspects of our changing societies, however, escaping into the pages of a good book is also a very good solution to this madness and I couldn’t recommend it more myself. 

Although the spare time I have in my life has reduced this year due to graduating and finally entering the adult world of work (Booooooooo!!!) it does not mean that I have enjoyed reading any less. I’ve read fewer books this year but I’ve still read a lot of great books and competition for a spot on this list was tough. Every book on this list is one I would recommend you to read if you have not done so already, regardless of their position on the list each book is fantastic in their own right.  

When I first read passenger this year I was convinced it would top my list, however, it’s been a long time since I’ve been blown away by a book to the degree I was by A Court of Mist and Fury. I might not have liked The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas, however, if this was The Great British Bake off ACOTAF is a stunning enough showstopper to still make her star baker and my favourite author of the year.

As always the list below shows my favourite quote from each book, links to more information and hashtags denoting key themes. 

10. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Universe

“I got to thinking that poems were like people. Some people you got right off the bat. Some people you just didn’t get–and never would get.”



9.  Six of Crows

“No mourners. No funerals.”



8. The Midnight Star

“You cannot harden your heart to the future just because of your past. You cannot use cruelty against yourself to justify cruelty to others.” 



7.  The Long way to the Small and Angry Planet

“People can do terrible things when they feel safe and powerful.”



6.  Rebel of the Sands

“The world makes things for each place. Fish for the sea, Rocs for the mountain skies, and girls with sun in their skin and perfect aim for a desert that doesn’t let weakness live.”



5. Salt to the Sea

“I wept because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.”



4. The Girl with All the Gifts

“You can’t save people from the world. There’s nowhere else to take them.”



3. The Winner’s Curse

“He knew the law of such things: people in brightly lit places cannot see into the dark.”



2. Passenger

“So you’d keep me here against my will-“
"Know this pirate,” he said, his hands gripping the railing, “you are my passenger, and I will be damned before I let any harm come to you.”



1. A Court of Mist and Fury

“I was not a pet, not a doll, not an animal.
I was a survivor, and I was strong.
I would not be weak, or helpless again
I would not, could not be broken. Tamed.”




“What a privilege it was to never feel like you had to take stock of your surroundings, or gauge everyone’s reactions to the color of your skin.”
Alexandra Bracken, Passenger
