Dammit this one's hard, I suck at picking favourites, atleast I get to pick ten though right?! You can guarantee the picks from me are going to be the most original and unique because I'm obsessed with both haha And yes I know I'm late, but there was breakfast, and then I attempted to do some Yoga and discovered I'm not as flexible as I used to be, and then I got distracted by a book and typing up a review, but hey at least I finally posted!
Okaaaayy so let's get started!
1. A Darker Shade Of Magic-V E Schwab
Okaaay so I just finished this today but still. It's that good it's already made a fave list from me! It's one of the best fantasy books that I've read recently and it's so original and unique and just awesome and the world is so rich.
2. Throne Of Glass- S J Maas
Serious favourite, I read all three in one go in a matter of days, I couldn't put them down, the main character is badass, and the book, is again, unique and original with an incredibly created world and each book always leaves you wanting more.
3. A Breath Of Frost- Alyxandra Harvey
Magic...romance...historical...what more could you want? A totally original take on magic and witches, a nice dose of history seeing as it's set in the Victorian times, and a trio of main female characters that are totally fantastic. It's such a cute romance as well!
4. Touch Of Frost- Jennifer Estep
I read ALL of the books in this series in a week, and I loved each of them, I seriously loved them. Fun, original, full of action and adventure and drama, this is one of my favourite series, I just gave you guys the first one in the series!
5. Reborn- C C Hunter
Right, this is a spin off from Shadow Falls, I would have said Shadow Falls as well as this but I mentioned it last week! You do kind of have to have read Shadow Falls to read this one, but it's all about Della this time, and takes an entirely different direction, with Della and her work for a certain group she's always wanted to join. Della is far too easy to connect to!
6. The Naturals- Jennifer Lynn Barnes
This is the first in a series, and it's totally awesome. It's a teen version of Criminal Minds pretty much, and a group of teens are solving murders....obviously. Each has their own skill, and I love trying to work out who it is, who the killer is, it's perfectly creepy but also funny and with a smidgen of romance.
7. Alice In Zombieland- Gena Showalter
I stumbled across this book at the library, and ended up reading it from there and then buying it to have my own copy, and I then had to wait with baited breath for the other two books! I pretty much re-read them each time as well! It's one of my favourite trilogies, and it's totally different and awesome, and there's cute romance and zombies and humour.
8. The Bone Season- Samantha Shannon
I know I mentioned this one last week, but it's so good guys, and so unique and I always bang on about unique books, but I love books that stand out from the crowd and this one certainly does, it's going to be a hell of a long wait for the third book and I'm already impatient!
9. Unspoken- Sarah Rees Brennan
So, I can't remember how I stumbled upon this book, I think I read the Demon's Lexicon books from the library, and decided to check out Sarah's other books and then I saw this was coming out and bought it and then yeah. So I love this series, it makes me laugh, the romance is all warm and fuzzies inducing and there's magic and mystery, and the wait for the other books has been agony!
10. City of Bones- Cassandra Clare
So, I read the first in the prequel trilogy book from the library, and thought it was only logical to buy all the Mortal Instruments books that where currently out and read them all in a matter of days, then wait in agony for the next books. I love this series. So much. I even got to meet the author when the film was coming out and the final book. It was the best thing ever. Just don't get me started on the TV series and the supposed rumours! Anyways, this is another of the unique ones, and I love it, and I'm excited for the next spin off series!
