I also just found out minutes ago that Theo James and I have the same birthday. JEALOUS? YOU SHOULD BE.
Top 10 Books I Read This Year:
Under the Never Sky was a very recent and surprising read. I forgot all forms of reading material at home one day (along with my phone) and all I had was my nook. So I pick one of my random ebooks and this one happened to be it. AND OMG AM I GLAD. The love I developed for these characters was on another level.
To All the Boys I've Loved Before...there's not much to explain about this. I may or may not have an unhealthy obsession with everything Jenny Han writes. Refer to later part of the post for more fangirling.
Unbreakable was the perfect thing to help me form an even crazier obsession with Supernatural than the one I already had. This one is definitely for fans of Supernatural. Brothers, demons, exorcisms, OH MY!
I'm forever indebted to Racquel from The Book Barbies for making me pick up Dangerous Girls earlier this year. It feels like so long ago! But YESSSS! Abigail Haas is a mastermind at twisted psychological thrillers. You need to pick these up if you haven't (btw they aren't part of a series or even companions. Very different, but very worth it.) and I need more from her!
All by Jenny Han. Jenny Han is a goddess when it comes to writing and developing characters. I count all three of these as one because I'm a cheater, but also because I read all of these books in the span of about three days. There was no jerky pause between books. I felt like I grew up with Belly, Jeremiah and Conrad in just a few days.
This section should be called the Rainbow-Rowell-Can-Do-No-Wrong section. I read Eleanor & Park last December and since then I've been hooked on her characters. They are some of the most relatable characters I've ever read. Let's be honest, Landline would have probably made it on this list if I had already read it *stares longingly at shelf*.
These two are the extremely emotional books of the bunch. I suggest you have a pack of tissues handy when you pick up Torn Away. It literally ripped my heart out and threw my emotions all over the place. I wish more people knew about this one.
As always, there are some VERY honorable mentions:
Have you read any of these? What was your number one book of the year?
