Just a list of all my favourite book/series that I have read this year. I’ve read a lot of books this year and it was so hard to put them in order.

1) Penryn and End of Days series by Susan Ee (Angelfall and World After)

Angelfall + World After
Amazing start to a series which I believe will be five books. I honestly can’t wait for the next book.
Angelfall: review
World After: review

2) Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy, Frostbite, Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise, Spirit Bound and Last Sacrifice)

A series that I should think everyone is familiar with. Entertaining, funny, heartbreaking and ultimately fantastic. I read this series in one swoop in August and still find myself revisiting it to reread snippets.

Series review.

3) Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

CrownOfMidnight
The second instalment of the Throne of Glass series. This is how sequals should be done. Better than the first book and the first book was pretty great. A series everyone should give a go, because there really is something for everyone.

Review

4) His Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers (Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph)

His Fair Assassin
The first two books in a trilogy. Brilliant books about assassin nuns. What more can make you want to read this book?! Love love loved it.

Grave Mercy: Review
Dark Triumph: No review available.

5) The Duff by Kody Keplinger

Love this one a lot. Perfect for a quick read. Great characters even if the storyline is a little predictable.
Review.

6) Maus by Art Spiegelman.

Just… wow. All I can say really. Pick this up, you won’t regret it. If you do… there’s something wrong with you.

7) The Monk by Matthew Lewis

One of the few classics I read this year. It’s insane. If you looking for something shocking this is what you need.
Review.

8) Study Series by Maria V. Snyder (Poison Study, Magic Study and Fire Study)

The male hero in this is to die for. I love him. Haha… But there is so much more to these books than the romance. Wonderful fantasy trilogy, with a strong heroine.
No reviews available.

9) Starcrossed Trilogy by Josephine Angelini (Starcrossed, Dreamless and Goddess)

All about Greek mythology. I know a lot of people stay away from this when reading Young Adult but I would definitely recommend giving this series a change. It is so action packed and fast paced its great. I’m not overly fussy when it comes to mythology so it would suit someone of the same opinion.
No reviews available.

10) Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa (The Immortal Rules and The Eternity Cure)

Yeah, another vampire series. But WAIT! with a twist: It’s set in a dystopian world. This series has so much potential to be one of the best Vampire series out there. Its not soppy, and these vampires are no push overs. People who have read Kagawa’s Fey series and disliked it may be put off by any of her other books. BUT PLEASE give this series a go. The writing, the world building, the characters AND the plot is utterly mind-blowing.
Short reviews but its something…
The Immortal Rules: Review
