30 Day Book Challenge: Day 5: A book that makes you happy

A Great and Terrible Beauty  - Libba Bray

I could have easily picked Harry Potter, but for the sake of repetition I won't.

 

This book (and series) just amazed me. The writing, and the character growth. We also had a queer* person as one of the main supporting characters (actually canon, revealed in the last book). It had plot, magic, and a love story, and Victorian-era girls running around causing chaos and general bad-assness. 

 

I devoured this book and series in about a month. I liked it that much.
