Favourite Reads of 2014

Posted December 31, 2014

So it’s the last day of 2014. What better way to mark the occasion than by sharing with you my favourite reads of the year? These are just books I read this year, they haven’t necessarily been published in 2014.

prisoner

 

Prisoner of Night and Fog is the first book in the series by Anne Blankman. I honestly can’t recommend it highly enough. My full review can be found here.

heir of fire

Heir of Fire is the third book in Sarah J Maas’ Throne of Glass series. I was desperate to read this book and it really did not disappoint. Book 1, Throne of Glass (a review here) is just 59p on the kindle right now, GO AND GET IT!

wonder

Kirsty recommended Wonder to me (review here). She had read it to her class and they all fell in love with it. It’s a beautiful yet simple, thought-provoking story. A must read for children and adults alike.

the way of kings

 

The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson (review here), what can I say about this? I was in the mood for an epic fantasy after rereading the Song of Ice & Fire series and this book was recommended to me. I haven’t read the next installment yet although it is available in hardback, but I will definitely be reading it. I found this book a little hard to get into to begin with, but it soon grasped my attention and I was hooked. Brilliant.

ruin & rising

 

I couldn’t wait to get my hands onĀ Ruin & Rising, the third and final book in Leigh Bardugo’s The Grisha Trilogy. I’ve adored this series from the beginning (see review of book one here) and the ending of this trilogy was quite simply awesome! I couldn’t stop reading, I had to know what was coming next. It was a brilliant read, emotional in places, but all that I could have wished for in the conclusion of this trilogy.

What have your favourite reads of 2014 been?

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2015, filled with fantastic books!
