Here we are at another end to a year. Every year I'm surprised by how fast time went. I can't believe it is 2016. We are so close to 2020 and that kind of blows my mind for some reason. Let's just hope that the weather people are right and this winter will be a the calmer less snowy and cold side.
As of today(and I won't be finishing another book), I've read 257 books in 2015. Now talk about mind blowing. Between October 1st and December 31st I've read 57 books. Pretty good number. Although December was a really slow reading month because of the busy time of year. Anyhow, I did do quite a bit of re-reading(eight books in those three months). And for the most part I read a bunch of very good books.
So here's the last list of my favourites from this year before the big finale where I go over my top 15.
Best debut of the year. A brilliant YA contemp that is neither fluffy or dark. Just right.
This book is life. Simon and Baz are life. The way Rowell played around with the "chosen one"trope is brilliant.
Riordan knows how to write a story. Magnus is perhaps my favourite of his characters to date. The sass and snark is at 100%.
Not only is Illuminae unique. It's thrilling, cool, funny and shocking.
I haven't read to many books that are meta, but I kind of like it. Hoover never fails to slay my emotions so of course November 9 was no exception.
The Anatomical Shape of a Heart is jus so effortlessly written. The relationship was perfection. And the characters, ah, just so much personality.
What I'm finding is there's two types of M/M romances; one that is making a point that these is about two gay guys or one that is just a love story. And Leveled is definitely a love story. Which is what I wanted. Lando and Dom are an amazing couple.
I'm pretty certain I've never felt this happy and complete upon finishing a series. Definitely one of my favourite series' I've had the pleasure to read and fangirl over.
THIS BOOK! My heart is still recovering from all the crying and feelings. I had two major heart attacks whilst reading. But it doesn't matter, I loved Raisy's journey towards happiness.
It's Daemon Black, how could I not love this?
The hype is real. This book is so good. And total surprised me. But that can't be it. There's going to be a sequel, yea?!
Shit really spun Valek in a whole other direction. Actually it spun Yelena and the gang every which way.
What's some of your favourite books you guys read these past months?
