Welcome back to another year of bad jokes and even worse puns… I feel as if I haven’t talked to you since last year… yes I did it and I am not sorry
Way to start off a new year right?
anyways…. The start of the new year is the perfect time to have a wrap up of our favourite books of 2016…
Tj – Bold Soup – Italics
5. Throne of Glass – Sarah J Maas
Throne of Glass follows the trials and tribulations of an Assassin as she is ‘throne’ (see what I did there?) into a world far different and possibly more dangerous than her past….
I finished this book so fast it was ridiculous, it was such a page turner and the 4 stars should not be a put off. While I do believe things could have bee improved and there were some things that I don’t believe were perfect, Throne of Glass is definitely worth the read, for the game-changer plots and wonderful (and not so wonderful) characters…
4. Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor
A story of fantasy intricately weaved into our everyday world by an expert imagination.
I realise that I’ve written a very vague description, but for a book like this I feel as if it’s best to go into it knowing very little… There are characters in this story that I never thought I could get so attached to and every hurt that the protagonist faced (Karou) hit me straight in the gut… a truly fascinating book.
At some points I did feel as if it was a bit confusing and slow but the next thing I know I was hooked again…
3. Heart of Betrayal
The second instalment in ‘The Remnant Chronicles’, life for Lia heats up as more and more secrets and troubles are uncovered and life for all of them changes forever.
While the first book was also a five star book, it’s sequel far surpassed it in ways I could not even have began to imagine…. All I can say is that reading it will be worth your while…. soooo good!
2. Iluminae – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
A full on sci-fi experience in a format that is truly ‘out of this world’.
Following the lives of multiple characters aboard a spaceship, this story is told through the use of interviews, camera footage and by the end of the book a completely different thing altogether. When looking at a book this large, you’d think it would take you ages, but the speed at which I read this book astounded me… I am not exaggerating when I say this book was truly captivating…
1.Six of Crows
Rating:*****(*****) – it deserves a million stars!
A heist story filled with witty, sarcastic and dare I say beautiful characters. As we experience an adventure of suspense and hilariousness this story will enter your heart and refuse to leave (not that you’d want it to)…
Have I expressed enough how much I love this book…. are you sure??? Everything about this book is perfect… PERFECT! I would say that I can be a harsh critic when it comes to books but Leigh Bardugo has a writing style that pulls you in and writes characters in a way that will cause you to physically feel love for them all…
If you read any book this year…. read this one… you WILL NOT be disappointed…
4. The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy – Douglas Adams
What a way to start off the year guys! A book post on the first week, this may just be a good year…
