Want to know what books I loved the most each month of my reading adventures? No? Then why are you here?

This page is a running list of everything I recommend the most, organized by month. At some point, I’ll need to archive this and start over for 2019. Yes, we are literally about the enter the year 2019 and we still don’t have hoverboards available for the general public. Instead we have a President Trump and forest fires everywhere. Way to go, humans!

Anyway, on a different note, since I only just thought to do this (your girl be slow like that) you only get, like, half the year’s worth of recs.

Content is content. Whatever.

Get in loser, we’re going book shopping!


Any Man by Amber Tamblyn

  • I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS ENOUGH. This book was unlike anything I have ever read, and I was utterly emotionally ruined by it. The only book I have read in literally a decade that has made me this emotional and awe-inspired. Find it here: Goodreads

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

  • I honestly didn’t think it was possible for me to love a Riley Sager novel more than I loved Final Girls, but then I read The Last Time I Lied and well, spit on my neck and kick me in the crotch, because this has usurped Final Girls as my favourite Sager read, if not one of my favourite reads ever. Period. Find it here: Goodreads

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman’s Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer by Michelle McNamara

  • This is a beautiful work of non-fiction/true crime. A bittersweet read because of the author’s own story, plus a balanced and detailed work of true crime because of the author’s talent and heart and drive. Highly recommended for fans of true crime and nonfiction, but just to fans of justice and thrillers and good writing, in general. Find it here: Goodreads
