Hello there, and happy new year!
While 2014 was kind of a terrible year for me (both life and reading wise!) I’ve got high hopes for 2015. I also have a few of my favourite books that I read this year to share with you all.
My main hope and task for this year is to breath love and life back into my passion for blogging and books. I look forward to sharing the unforeseeable future with you all!
Without further ado, and in no particular order…
HEIR OF FIRE – SARAH J MAAS
The Throne Of Glass series is highly favoured by many book bloggers and YA Fantasy lovers alike – and with damned good reason. There is nothing to say about this book except:
If you haven’t read it, read it.
If you have read it, read it again.
SHADOW AND BONE – LEIGH BARDUGO
This recently concluded trilogy is another favourite among the bookish. I didn’t love it as much as some others did, but that won’t stop me from reading the rest of the series when I have the chance.
If you can’t tell by that fantastical cover, a beautiful world and story is held in this book.
THE FIFTH WAVE – RICK YANCEY
Rick Yancey created a wonderful novel that was quite different from a lot of the apocalyptic YA circulating at the time.
While I’m terrified of aliens and the unknown, that just made the book a more interesting read for me.
THE KNIFE OF NEVER LETTING GO – PATRICK NESS
Patrick Ness is a wonderfully gifted writer. Unfortunately, he is also one of those writers that loves to rip out the hearts of his fans (need I say anymore?).
I was intimidated by the size of this book, but I found that once I was in, the pages flew by!
HALF BAD – SALLY GREEN
I recieved Half Bad as an early birthday present and let me tell you, it did not last long. I gobbled it up as soon as I could. The book is narrated by a male witch, which in itself is amazing, but more than that, it is a beautiful read, with stunningly human characters.
AND. Sally Green allowed me to name one of the minor characters in Half Wild. So when you read about Claudia, you can know that I named her! I’m so honoured.
