It’s the last day of the year, so I want to the remember those books that made my heart flutter, beat faster, and break harder than I would’ve have anticipated. =P
Here it goes!
The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium #2) by Stieg Larsson: Mystery/Suspense. definitely the rawest, most brutal among the series. I seriously admire Lisbeth Salander. *clap clap* This book was my first 5-star book this year.
The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell: Post-apocalyptic. Zombies. Temple tops my Most Kick-*ss Heroines list. She’s so, so cool. =)
Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King: Contemporary. I am 50/50 when it comes to contemp books, but Vera and Charlie owned me. OWNED me.
Deadline (Newsflesh #2) by Mira Grant: Post-apocalyptic. Zombies. Becks, you rocked my zombie-infested world! and Shaun, oh Shaun… 😦 made me teary-eyed almost after every freakin’ chapter.
Monsters of Men (Chaos Walking #3) by Patrick Ness: Science Fiction. What a triumphant ending. Chaos Walking trilogy is one of my fave series now.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Contemporary. Charlie’s the man! My 2nd 5-star contemp book and I absolutely loved every page of it.
Geek Girl by Cindy Bennett: Contemporary. This is quite a surprise for me. I was turned mush from start to finish.. by Trevor. Hee! I adored the story: predictable yet sweet. Can’t help but smile about it. 🙂
Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout: Science Fiction. I am such a Daemon fan. ’nuff said.
Archangel’s Storm (Guild Hunter #5) by Nalini Singh: Adult Paranormal Romance. been a fan of this series for so long, but I have yet to find a favorite.. until now. Jason’s story got a 5-star-rating because of its solidity.
Stormdancer (Lotus War #1) by Jay Kristoff: Fantasy. This is what you call an investment. No matter how long it was, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Go, Buruu!
No Strings Attached by Mina V. Esguerra: Contemporary. My ultimate fave among MVE books. Like I said in my review, it fitted me like a glove.
Heartsick (Gretchen Lowell #1) by Chelsea Cain: Mystery/Suspense. My penchant for serial killers just got sharpened! I am in love with Chelsea Cain. Oh you evil, evil woman! 😉
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson: Fantasy. Beautiful Prose. Heartachingly numbing. My goodness, I didn’t realized Tiger Lily and Peter Pan will make me cry. But they did.
Alice in Zombieland (White Rabbit Chronicles #1) by Gena Showalter: Fantasy. Superbly Entertaining! and Cole Holland.. wow. *ahem*
My honorable mentions are as follows. 😉
These are the books that I didn’t expect much, but I was taken aback by how much I really liked them.
Whoa! What an unbelievable reading year I have. 😀
I’m assuming you had an awesome time, too? *winks*
Happy New Year, everyone!
