2015 Reading Stats
Best in Books
Victor Vale from Vicious. He's as ambiguous as they come, and I loved him to bits!
And another memorable character I have to mention is Maven from Red Queen. In my opinion, a truly terrific character is one from a not so remarkable book who manages to stand out despite the book's drawbacks. I didn't enjoy Red Queen much, but I loved Maven, and I would even probably go for the sequel just for him!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This book has a lyrical quality to it that makes it easy for you to envision the circus and everything described in the book in front of your eyes!
My Heart and Other Black Holes. I've been hesitating to read any books about mental health - especially depression - in fear that they might bring back bitter memories, but this book gave me the courage to go forth and try out such books!
And Faking Normal! This book hit close to home in so many levels and made me super emotional!
Graceling! This book has been in my TBR as long as I had somthing called a TBR! :D I am glad I read it though, as I really loved the fantasy novel which was a feminist's dream book.
Oh and also My Life Next Door! It's another senior citizen of my TBR list!
My fav quote of this year would be from Vicious.
" Plenty of humans were monstrous. And plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human"
Longest - The Diviners by Libba Bray ( 592 pages )
Shortest - Only For Him by Cristin Harber ( 70 pages )
Dangerous Girls by Abigail Hass. THAT ENDING!!!!!
Also We Were Liars by E.Lockhart. Again, ending!
Khalid and Shazi from The Wrath and the Dawn!!!! I ship these two to death!!!
And I am a huge shipper so I can't stop with one. There's Kestrel and Arin from The Winner's Curse, Miles and Alex from Made You Up. Kaz and Inej from Six of Crows. Nathan and Gabriel from Half Bad. June and Day from Legend! And Adam and Ronan from Raven Boys!
Victor and Sydney from Vicious! They have a beautiful relationship! Also Rhy and Kell from ADSOM! And the four boys and Blue from Raven Boys!
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I read Shadow and Bone some years back, though I have to continue the series. Maybe next year!
Firelight by Kristen Callihan. It was Nuzaifa's recommendation, and she also let me borrow her copy and I actually went into this book blind without even reading the blurb. It ended up as a quite enthralling read!
Kaz from Six of Crows! He's a perfect antihero, a mastermind and a wickedly glorious character! Obviously, I have a humongous crush on him!
Also Morpheus from Splintered. *fans self*
Made You Up! A beautiful contemporary which is certainly one of my all time favourites!
A Darker Shade of Magic! The concept of different Londons, different types of magic and Victoria's beautiful way of showing things instead of telling them, made this world a fascinating one!
My Life Next Door gave me all warm and fuzzy feels because of family and cuteness over load!
Ah. A lot of books succeeded in this in 2015.
Made You Up - ALEX AND MILES!!! My precious babies!!!
Damsel Distressed - Never have a book portrayed insecurity this perfectly before. SO RELATABLE!!!
Faking Normal - It hit too close to home....
My Heart and Other Black Holes - Surprisingly this made me shed happy tears! I felt proud of Aysel's - and my - decision to stay alive.
Hurt and From Where I Stand by Tabitha Suzuma - It's Tabitha Suzuma. What else do you expect?
One Last Song - The fact that this book is so underrated makes me cry even more!!!
One Last Song. Such a beautiful book, but so underrated!
Queen of Shadows. Haven't even read it, but I already hate it. Because CHAOLAENA!!!
*Go sobs in a corner*
Stolen by Lucy Christopher. Second person POV. Written in letter form. Stockholm syndrome. Certainly unique!
