Since I haven't finished anymore books since my Ruby Circle Booktalk I though it would be fun to do a post on my favorite books of 2015 so far (I mean its nearly the end of 2015). So, in no particular order...
1. Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas
This was an incredible book from a series that is going from strength to strength. One of my pet hates in YA series is that there is always one book where the main love interests have to spend a book apart and it tends to be the slowest book of the series (i'm looking at you New Moon) but not in this case. Thanks to the introduction of Rowan I think this one might be my favourite book of the series so far. The dynamic between him and Celaena was on point and almost mirrored that of Celaena and Chaol's from the first book. Additionally, the story of Manon and the witches is a plot I'm really enjoying and I can't wait for her and Celaena to finally meet and hopefully work together even if it is just a political alliance. I'll just have to wait and see if Queen of Shadows can top it.
2. The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare
This was just a nice, easy enjoyable read. It is a collection of short stories centering on Magnus Bane and incorporates some of our favorite characters from the Shadowhunters universe. My favorites were probably the two involving Raphael Santiago (Saving Raphael Santiago and Fall of the Hotel Dumort). I am also eagerly awaiting the release Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy which I expect to be equally enjoyable.
3. Lola and the Boy next door by Stephanie Perkins
Now this book is the only contemporary one on this list as its the only contemporary series I've read but I absolutely love this one. However, I'm not sure if its my favorite one of the series because Anna and the French Kiss was just wonderful. I think I'm going to have to say its a tie between the two. Anyway, it was a great read and its a nice deviation from the typical books I read. Its just a fun, warm and fuzzy book to read and I can't wait to read more in this genre. In fact I think one of my next reads might be, My True Love Gave To Me: Twelve Holiday Stories, in the run up to Christmas.
4. The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
The fourth book on this list is the second book by Holly Black I've read. I loved this one just like the first one but I think I enjoyed the Coldest Girl in Coldtown just that little bit more. Despite this it was still an enjoyable read and its nice to read a standalone novel once in a while so you can read the whole story at once rather than having to wait years to find out what happens in the end. Furthermore, I think it makes the story a lot more fast paced as it has to tell a complete story with all its twists and turns in one book. Additionally, the book didn't feel to rushed. Ultimately, the only complaint I have is that I want to find out a bit more about what happens to all the characters. In my opinion I could have done with an extra chapter maybe set about 5 years later to see what everyone had gotten up to but, I guess that's the sign of a good story, you don't want it to end.
So, that's it folks. I hope you enjoyed this post as I really enjoyed writing it and I think its one of my favorites so far. I would really appreciate it if you would leave me a comment letting me know what you thought of it and what your favorite books you've read in 2015 are. Thanks for reading and until next time. Live. Laugh and Keep Reading!
