Books of the year - Faye from A Daydreamer's Thoughts

I've known Faye from A Daydreamer's Thoughts for a while because of the fabulous blog tours she organises, and I've been lucky to meet her in real life too. Faye has excellent taste in books, so I'll hand over the blog for Faye to share her books of the year.



They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera

This was my first Adam Silvera book and it was absolutely beautiful. The writing really pulled me in and the story was just so emotional. You really connect and empathise with the characters and even though you know what's going to happen, it's still such a blow when it finally ends. I can not recommend this book more.



The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

A strong, powerful, politically relevant book. This novel pulled me in from the very first page. I was hooked, riverted, all the adjectives under the sun that describe a person on the edge of their seat. But more than anything I think this book is just incredibly important. It shows the struggle, the strength and the humanity that needs to change, bend, and become better. I cannot wait to see it as a movie.



When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

At the base of this book is a chick-lit style format. Girl meets boy. Girl hates boy. Girl becomes friends with boy, etc. But it is also so much more than that. It is a story that is diverse both with it's characters and it's storytelling. It shows strong, powerful characters and has a wonderful theme of feminism running through it too. It both questions society and makes you think. But on top of all of that, it is also just a light, fun, entertaining read. A book I would definitely recommend if you haven't already read it!
