This year I read a total of 67 books. It may be not even close to the 108 I read last year, but I read quite a few larger books rather than small ones. In the end, this year was a really good year, so I don’t know how I’ll be able to pick my favorites, but it must be done! So here they are!
10. The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
As soon as I read the first book in this series, I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next book. This one was even better than the first one and I just couldn’t put it down! Plus, the ending… I JUST CAN’T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK.
9. Pawn by Aimee Carter
I found this book on Goodreads and I just automatically knew that I had to read it and I’m so glad that I did. This book was just so unique and unlike anything that I’ve read. It’s really adventure sci-fi which I loved. There’s also Knox, who I absolutely adore.
8. All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
I’m one of the biggest time travel fans… I absolutely love Doctor Who. That’s probably why I loved this book so much. I just loved the characters and the whole idea that Terill came up with. I definitely recommend it.
7. Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
I originally picked this up because I wanted to read it before the movie came out. All that I knew was that it was about zombies. It’s actually about a lot more than that, which is probably why I loved it, as well as the movie! I’m probably going to reread this one this year.
6. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
I’ve found that I really love reading bigger books, so this one was just a perfect read. I loved how mysterious the characters were, as well as how the past and present were interwoven. This is just such a fantastic adventure novel that everyone should read.
5. Looking for Alaska by John Green
I read The Fault in Our Stars in 2012 and I really loved it, so I knew that I had to read more of John Green’s books. I actually chose this one because of the quotes that I’d seen on Goodreads. Any book with good quotes is worth reading, and this book definitely proved that statement.
4. Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha van Leer
Wow… this book was just unbelievably awesome. I didn’t know that I’d love it this much. I think I loved it because it really made me think. I got to think about what the characters in books really do when the book is closed. I also got to fall in love with a fairytale prince. It was just a really fun read.
3. The Knife of Never Letting Go Trilogy by Patrick Ness
I read this entire series in a week, and with good reason. I love my dystopians, and I’d heard such great things about this series. I really loved all of the characters and the great writing. I really want to read more by Patrick Ness.
2. 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad
This book was so creepy and awesome! I really don’t want to go to the moon now. I don’t want to say too much, but if you’re looking for a creepy horrorish-science fiction read, definitely pick this up.
1. Gated by Amy Christine Parker
I can’t even use words to express how much I loved this book. Everything that happened was just. so. unexpected. I couldn’t believe what was happening and I just couldn’t stop reading. I will never stop recommending this one to friends and other readers, because this is a book that everyone NEEDS to read.
