Book 19 of 2018 is Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend.
I only found out after reading this that it was written by an Aussie female author. That makes me proud because this is one of the best books I've read this year.
The female protagonist is curious, robust and sensible. Unlike most young adult novel heroines, she isn't clueless and silly. She thinks for herself and makes sensible decisions.
This world is phantasmagorical and wonderful. Reminds me of Night Circus.
Read it. Read it. Read it.
5 destinies out of 5.
Should I read this? Yep.
What did I learn? Female authors write brilliant characters and not just female ones.
