I got a couple emails via Goodreads and my other email whether I’m still here. So let me clarify…
Now that I’m co-reviewing at Finding Bliss in Books, this does not mean that I will ditch YA Midnight Reads. Maybe less posts but I’m pratically blogging everyday here anyways so you won’t miss me much. After all, I’ll show up with reviews at Finding Bliss in Books! (which I’m still overjoyed about) I will commence soon over there!
Best of 2013… so far
It is pratically the middle on the middle month so I decided to make a post, sharing my top FIVE books that I have read this year. Not necessarily published this year. And it was a really hard decision despite that I haven’t come across anything compltely ruining but here they are!
I’d be mad not to place a John Green novel here. Hazel’s voice was so genuine and relatable in the sense that it wasn’t trite, but had a personality that screamed of a true mature teen. Also, heart breaking ending.
I guess contemporaries touch my heart more and therefore, I love them more but this book- WOW. Greek mythology + romance= my true love. Jack is such a sweetheart.
Angels. Bleh. Written by Paula Weston? I AM SO IN. Also, aussie author! (wheee!) If you haven’t started reading this series, I’m sorry to break it to you but you are crazy. If anything, this is one of my favourite YA angel series along with Angelfall by Susan Ee
. In fact, if you loved Angelfall, this is the perfect series to begin. Raffe *swoons*
A wonderful sci-fi novel. Some don’t like it but I LOVED it. Everything about this novel was close to flawless, while the romance wasn’t the best, the characters, idea, setting were all so complex. And don’t forget out sweet brother-sister connection!
Beautiful. Just so god damn beautiful, this novel is. Here’s what I loved about this:
1. The unique POV
4. Aussie author (!!)
5. Gritty setting
Words cannot explain how magnificent this book is. I will reread this book soon and attempt a proper review as I have no words at the moment. Wait, I repeated myself there. See? No words apart from no words.
I’m confused. O.o Anyway, just read it and you will love me forever. *wink*
Just because I can…
I also have another top one. This is an adult fiction and is pretty much equal to The Book Thief- I label it under JUST BECAUSE I CAN as I read it last year.
Another beautiful book filled with heart-breaking facts. I learnt a lot from this book for a change and the ending. Oh crud.
Those are my favourites of this year so far. What about you peeps?
