My goodness I haven't done a Top Ten Tuesday in like 7 months but I thought I had to do this one as I might not be able to get my 2014 End of Year Book Survey in since I'll be going away.
This week's: Top Ten Books I Read In 2014! And I'm doing this by all the books I read in 2014 regardless of release date. This doesn't include all my 5 star reads because while some books were 5* quality, they weren't... Favourites per se - they weren't books I'd re-read. These are the books I adored, would re-read, endings that made me happy, gave me lots of feels and had really shippable couples!
This was really hard to choose D: like 10 just overall best books I read this year? ARGH here goes...
You knew it. I knew it. The whole world knew it. HOF is my fav by a landslide. It is THE book of the year for me.
CHAPTER 55. Sweet baby Jesus *fans self*
SO. MUCH. LOVE. FOR THIS SERIES. And JON was perfect. It's one of my favourite contemporaries ever. It's like... Melina Marchetta level favourite. That's right. You heard me.
It's Melina Marchetta come on. Saving Francesca 5 years later omgomg. All the Melina Marchetta <3
While I loved DoGaM too and that ending to the trilogy was fantastic, it was DoBaS that gave me so many bloody feels.
Aaslkdjslfsdghslhfsdfs no words JUST READ THIS IT'S BEAUTIFUL. The writing is stunning!
Assassin nuns? CHYEAH! Also, swoony guy. High fantasy wins!
I will go down with this ship
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
I binge read this whole series and loved it but if I had to pick 1 book I loved out of the trilogy it'd be the last one. High fantasy always.
Absolutely blown away by the depth of the world building. It's a fantastic mix of so many genres and it just WORKS. Samantha Shannon is genius.
