|one||All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven |
This will probably remain my number one book for the year. It's devastatingly beautiful. I sobbed for so long after reading it, and spent the next hour re-reading passages. If you can handle darkness, you'll fall in love. // Review
Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
If you haven't read this trilogy, you're missing out. Eleanor is a kickass fantasy heroine. Daniel is dashingly swoonworthy. Plus, there are evil spirits, zombies, and parasol. If I weren't limiting myself today to a 1-book-per-series limit, the other two would be on here. // Review
Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier
I waited for this book for ages, and it didn't disappoint. It's a whimsical, romantic adventure through gorgeous dreamscapes. And don't forget absolutely adorable poetry-quoting boys. // Review
The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkowski
If you have any love for fantasy at all, you'll obsess over this book. Kestrel is a whip smart, cunning heroine. Arin is a kind, loyal hero. The political intrigue and drama surrounding them is ridiculous amounts of tense and exciting. And the sequel? Good god, book hangover. // Review
A Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters
Cat Winters can do no wrong when it comes to historical paranormal. Or life, I'm sure. She's the queen of combining spirits and the supernatural with sizzling historical romance. This one adds a dash of feminism, a spunky heroine, and a dashing magician. // Review
Golden Son by Pierce Jackson
Curses, Jackson, how you flay my heart! If Red Rising wasn't brutal and dramatic enough, Golden Son made up for it. Darrow is in deeper than ever. It's breakneck action and drama all the way through. And that ending, holy crap! // Review
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
If you're looking for something beautifully tragic, look no further. Silvera's debut should be required reading. It's gorgeously written, with a heartbreaking romance. // Review
|eight||Uprooted by Naomi Novak |
If you're sick of the fairy tale kick, don't give up yet. Novak's story is ridiculously original, with beautiful writing and a plot that could have been dreamed up by the Grimms. Plus great characters, a snarky wizard...need I say more? // Review
Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley
Love Neil Gaiman? Meet Headley. Her storytelling has that same dark, whimsical flair, but she's definitely her own writer. Her characters are endearing, and she has flying ships. Flying. Ships.
|ten||The Unquiet by Mikaela Everett |
This one snuck up on me. You probably haven't heard of it, but you're missing out. It's an atmospheric, character-driven story with elements of tragedy, romance, and cross-dimensional war. // Review
