I've got to say, I've read some pretty fabulous books this year, some books made me cry, some books tore my heart out and other books which still have me wanting to know more. Out of my great list of books I read this year there are definitely a few that I totally fell in love with. I mean like absolutely head over heels kind of love. The type of love that makes you want to scream out the name of book on rooftops and skyscrapers. Yes, I loved them that much.
In total I roughly read around 50 books this year and they were all mostly Young Adult fiction.
My 10 WILD FANTABULOUS favourites of this year, in no particular order:
1. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver:
It had the right amount of action, romance, adventure, awesomeness and an added bonus of a deadly cliffhanger (I'm actually surprised I survived the end of the book)
2. Looking for Alaska by John Green:
This was the first EVER John Green book I read and seriously, it was amazing and emotional. I have now gone on to becoming a nerdfighter!
3. The DUFF by Kody Keplinger:
I have to say, The Duff was one of those reads you just picked up in a random state of mind then somehow along the journey of reading it, you realise how much you actually like it. It's the kind of book that keeps you up all night just to see what happens in the end, I loved it a grand amount.
4. Forgotten by Cat Patrick:
I was recommended this book by a friend and I sure was not disappointed. The book had this unique feel to it. It carried this sense of simplicity but unravelled this complex plot that really stood out and kept me hooked.
5. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand:
This was another book that I read that was the second in a series. Well, the amount of emotions this book conveyed to me was scary, every time I would sit to read it I was overcome with all the emotions that the book held and Cynthia Hand managed to break my heart numerous times while reading it.
6. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund:
This book was also recommended to me by a friend and I sure was surprised by it. The book was so beautifully written and created this new and unique world for the reader. It was an amazing read!
7. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry:
I have to say this book tugged at so many heart strings, I was literally feeling all the emotions the characters were feeling. Noah and Echo were the type of characters that stay in your mind long after you finish reading the book.
8. Insurgent by Veronica Roth:
I actually liked Insurgent better than the first book, I was totally gripped from start to finish and it was a rollercoaster I was glad to be on.
9. Speechless by Hannah Harrington:
I was actually blown away by how much I actually loved Speechless. It was simple and beautiful with a powerful message. Hannah Harrington also managed to make her way onto my list of favourite authors as well.
10. Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett:
This book was a simple and fun read which I read from start to finish within a day which included staying up late into the night.
+11. A Midsummer's Nightmare by Kody Keplinger:
I had to add this one onto my list because I only finished it the day before and I can't explain how much I loved it. It's fabulous on so many levels and I can say for sure that I would read any book written by Kody Keplinger.
