Amanda’s Favorite ARCs

Hi, lovelies! I know last week I said that was going to be the last list of favorites. But I had an idea of making a list of all the arc’s I read in 2019 and listing my favorites from those too. I read quite a few 2020 ARCs that I wanted to include on my favorites lists, but didn’t. So, this list is for those.

Rayne & Delilah’s Midnite Matinee by Jeff Zentner

This really  hit home for me with some of the topics it covers. I love Zenter’s writing and got to meet him this year as well. He seems like a cool dude.

King of Fools by Amanda Foody

The  ending killed me. I need book three as soon as possible.

Dark Shores by Danielle L. Jensen

This was just an incredible fantasy novel and I look forward to reading more of Jensen’s writing.

100 Days of Sunlight by Abbie Emmons

Sweet and diverse. I loved the way the story was told too.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

I’ve talked so much about this book, you already know if you’re not new here. If you’re new, go read this one right now.

Jane Anonymous by Laurie Faria Stolarz

I read this in one sitting. I laughed and I cried. This is one I’ll recommend again and again.

Ashlords by Scott Reintgen

Pheonix horses. Do you need to know anything else?

Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

Twitter romance, baking blogs, and slow burn romance. This was such a fun read.

Foul is Fair by Hannah Capin

The magical  realism was incredible. The characters were fascinating. It was dark as hell and I loved every page.

These are the arc’s I read this year that I will definitely be making sure to buy a physical copy of (if I haven’t already).  So, go preorder or buy these right now. You won’t regret it.

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
