  1. Bookish Academy Awards is my favorite tag! That was awesome how you added other nominees in each category and that Raven Cycle (my favorite series of the year) featured prominently in several categories. Waiiiitaminute, I think I must read Stalking Jack the Ripper, if not for the title alone. Ppeople seem to either love or hate Before I Fall. Sorry you fell into the latter category ’cause I loved it. XD

    • Stalking Jack the Ripper came in a close second for my favorites. It’s so so so good. Especially if you love mysteries set in gloomy Victorian London! And I just found out it’s a series. So there will be even more books!
