A book that was a little slow to start off but really picked up as it went along
by Geraldine Brooks
A book that had a rich, great plot
by Neil Gaiman
This was my very first read of 2014, and ended up being one of the best things I read last year, too. There's certainly a reason this is regarded as Gaiman's masterpiece, and I can't wait for the TV adaptation!
A book you thought was going to be bad but actually turned out quite enjoyable
by Robin LaFevers
What can I say? I didn't expect to enjoy this book all that much, and I ended up really, really enjoying it.
A sugary sweet book
by Jenny Colgan
Ha. See what I did there? This is a very cute book, and worth a read if you're a fan of contemporary.
A book that covered every single element that you enjoy about a book (funny moments, action moments, sad moments, etc.)
by Mira Grant
You all know how much I adore this book. This was my favourite book of 2014 and one of my favourite reads of all time and I love it.
A book series that you can kind of turn back to for a little pick me up when you're feeling down
by Marissa Meyer
Now obviously I love Harry Potter - if I had to pick an all time favourite series then that would be it, without question - but if I start re-reading Harry Potter then I want to re-read the entire series. If I want to just dip in and out of something, however, then it's The Lunar Chronicles I turn to; lately if I ever need a pick me up I re-read the scene where Cinder and Kai are finally reunited in Cress, because it gives me all the happy feels.
The Cherry On Top
Your favourite book this year so far
by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
I loved this book. It was exquisite and unexpected and I loved reading it, I was genuinely quite distressed when it was over. Highly recommended! You can check out my review here!
