Today I thought I would share my 15 favourite books from this year. You will already have seen my five favourite books of this year but as I mentioned I had more books that I wanted to talk about.
- The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
I finally read this hugely hyped book and I loved it. The writing was excellent and I really enjoyed it. This book had some great quotes. This definitely my favourite John Green book.
This was written so beautifully. I loved Erin Morgenstern’s writing and I could easily picture the circus.
3. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I wasn’t sure whether I was going to enjoy this but I did. At first, the story was quite slow but then it really picked up especially once we had that massive plot twist which I was not expecting.
This has been one of my favourite discoveries of the year. The Lunar Chronicles is an amazing series. Marissa Meyer writes such amazing characters and I really like that they are all based on fairy tales.
This has been another series that I have been really impressed with. This series is about an assassin and there is also magic involved. I really like the character of Celaena and I think she is really interesting to read about as there is much more to her than just being an assassin.
6. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
This is another great book from Sarah J Maas. I have really enjoyed discovering her this year. This book is loosely based on Beauty and the Beast. I thought this was an excellent start to a new series.
I loved this book so much. I found the characters so easy to relate to and I really enjoyed the story. Although the plot was quite simple I thought Rainbow Rowell’s writing made it really enjoyable.
8. The Selection series by Kiera Cass
I marathoned through this series. I really enjoyed the plot for this series, a competition to marry the prince. I found the idea of the caste system really interesting and I can’t wait to read the final book when it comes out this year.
9. Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
I started reading the Mortal Instruments series and I really enjoyed it. The books are so fast paced and although they are quite long I get through them very quickly.
I have always enjoyed Sophie Kinsella’s work and this was no exception. This was the first book of hers that I had read which had two perspectives. I thought this was one of Sophie Kinsella’s best books as I enjoyed it so much.
11. The Siren by Kiera Cass
Another Kiera Cass book, I read this before the Selection series and I really enjoyed it. As the title suggests this book was about sirens and I found Kiera’s take on it very interesting. I really liked her writing in this book.
12. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
This book was hugely popular this year and I also really enjoyed it. This is a new fantasy series and one I would highly recommend. I found the concept behind this very interesting and I can’t wait to read more from this world.
13. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
I thought this book was excellent. It was about Lou who was hired to look after Will who has been paralysed by a motorbike accident. This was such a heartbreaking book and I can’t wait to see the movie.
14. Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
Another Sophie Kinsella book. This was her first YA book and I thought it was really good. The main character has anxiety and I thought this was written really well. There were moments in this book when I was laughing out loud.
15. The Last of the Spirits by Chris Priestley
I only read this towards the end of the year but it left such an impression on me that I had to include it. Priestley incorporated the Christmas Carol story into his own and I really enjoyed it.
