2015 has been such an amazing year book wise for me, I’ve seen good, bad and definitely ugly. From amazing book hauls to horrible reading slumps this year has definitely been memorable book wise.
Anyways here is a little summary of what 2015 had to offer me;
Book 1, 2 & 3 of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer:
So Cinder, Scarlet and Cress are the first three books of the Lunar Chronicles which a retelling’s of the classic fairtales: Cinderella, Red Riding Hood and Rupanzal respectively.
Overall I would give these books 4/5 stars because I just could not put them down, I read them all in the space of 4 days because I just had to know what happened next.
Kiss of Deception and Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson:
A young princess flees to distant village on her wedding day to avoid an arranged marriage to a prince she’s never met. In the village she meets two handsome and mysterious strangers; one is an assassin sent to kill her and another is the prince she ran away from. Amidst lies and betrayal Lia finds herself falling in love.
I would give Kiss of Deception 4/5 stars and Heart of Betrayal 3/5 stars.
Kiss of Deception was a good book, it had an amazing plot twist that no one saw coming (or was I the only one?).
Heart of Betrayal was a little slow for me, I kept wanting to just reach the end already but otherwise it was an okay book. The cliff-hanger killed me though, left me wanting more.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas:
Nineteen year old Feyre kills a wolf in the woods and a strange beast like creature comes to seek retribution. As payment Feyre has to live in the deadly magical land of faeries with this creature. Turns out the creature is a faery named Tamlin.
Overall this book gets 5/5 stars I mean Sarah J. Maas can do no wrong, this book was just amazing and the cliff hanger at the end just about killed me.
Books 1, 2 & 3 of the Starbound Trilogy by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner:
These Broken Stars, This Shattered World and Their Fractured Light are three books in the Starbound Trilogy, they follow the stories of six individuals all connected by one man and his experiments on an extraterrestrial species.
So overall I give this series 3.5/5 stars don’t get me wrong it was a good series, I liked the first book not so much the second but the last was pretty good.
The Fifth Wave and The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey:
After the 1st wave only darkness remains, after the 2nd only the lucky escape. After the 3rd wave only the unlucky survive, after the 4th wave only one rule remains; trust no one. Its the dawn of the fifth wave.
5/5 stars and I’m not just saying that because Chloë Grace Moretz is playing as Cassie. These books were really really good, cannot wait for the next book.
The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa:
Sequel to The Iron Fey Series this follows the story of Ethan Chase brother to Megan Chase The Iron Queen herself.
Normally I hate when a series is finished and the author keeps forcing it by adding more books to it. (Kiera Cass I’m talking to you!… No offence.) Anyway, this book was actually kinda good I admit so I give it 3.5/5 stars.
The Murder Complex by Lindsay Cummings:
This is an action packed, blood soaked futuristic debut thriller set in a world where the murder rate is higher than the birthrate.
Normally I do not read actiony books but I decided to give this a try because it was dystopian and it turned out to be okay, I give it 3.5/5 stars.
Enclave by Ann Aguirre:
New York City residents decimated by war and plague live underground in Enclaves, barely past age 20. Deuce 15, trained as a Huntress, pairs with odd Fade, who was raised Topside. Elders of Enclave exile both Fade and Deuce and together, guided by old memories must survive in gang infested ruins and face an apocalyptic world with new dangers and feelings.
I was a little skeptical about this book but I just couldn’t put it down, I just had to finish it so I give it 4.5/5 stars.
Ok so I wanted to give you guys a little taste of what I read in 2015, of course I read more but those are the ones that really stuck with me. Watch out for my next post for more book reviews.
