THIS BLOG HAS BEEN IN EXISTENCE FOR A YEAR. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
I can't believe I didn't start blogging sooner! The one thing that I love more than reading books is talking about them. Since I've been sharing my opinions (good and bad!) with you for a year, I thought that the best way to celebrate would be to tell you about some of my favorite books and give you the chance to win one!
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Everyone knows how much I love The Bone Season and how excited I am to read The Mime Order. The world is so complex and I really enjoyed the book as a whole. If you like intricate stories, you'll love this one! Not to mention that we have tons of books to look forward to since this is a seven book series. I can't wait to see how the story unfolds!
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Even though I'm getting a little tired of seeing TFiOS everywhere (don't hate me!), I love this book and it deserves to be read by as many people as possible. I know this one is really popular but I needed to include it in this list. There are many great contemporary novels out there and this one if just one of the bunch. However, The Fault in Our Stars has a special place in my heart. I'm not sure how it got in there or why it has such a strong grip on my heartstrings. Judging by the craziness surrounding the movie release, a whole lot of people feel the same way!
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath is me. I am Cath. End of story. Rainbow Rowell's writing is like a box full of kitties, unicorns, and chocolate chip cookies. I can't get enough of it and it always takes me on the "All the Feels Roller-coaster Ride." I loved Eleanor & Park but I was able to relate to this one a lot more. Also, Levi.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I'm such a fangirl of this series. I can't stop talking about it! It might be a little bit of a problem. I love the main character, I love Chaol, I love the world, I love the story...I love it all. And to think that I almost didn't read the second book! This is your chance to catch up before the third book comes out! :)
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I remember reading this book and being completely mesmerized by it. The writing is stunning and the story is both heartbreaking and beautiful (my all-time favorite combination). I'm sure most of you have read it but if you haven't: please do yourself a favor and READ IT.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
I already talked about this one but just in case you didn't read that post: This book is incredible. It warmed my heart and I can't recommend it enough. If you're looking for a beautiful and diverse coming-of-age story, this one is for you!
