Sunday has arrived and amongst the stupid cold I’ve still not been able to shake this week and it being the first full seven days of Camp NaNoWriMo I’ve still managed to find just enough time to crack out this weeks Six for Sunday post! That is however mainly because this weeks prompt feels like one of the easier ones for me, partially because I’ve only read 17 books so far this year and I have some clear favourites.
- Illuminae – by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Probably my top read so far this year. Illuminae felt like a game changer for me and has sucked me in like a book hasn’t done for a long while, it was a totally wild ride and I can’t believe it’s over (I’m struggling to get through Obsido because I can’t stand the idea that’s its done after that!)
- Hero at the Fall – by Alwyn Hamilton
It took me a little while to get into Rebel, I adored Traitor and devoured it in a few days and Hero was perfect and everything I could have looked for in the last book of a trilogy.
- Bloodline – by Claudia Gray
I adore the way Leia was written in this book, it really made it for me. I enjoyed the story as well and the relationships with some of the characters just worked so well
- To Kill a Kingdom – by Alexandra Christo
This book totally reignited my love for all things mermaid/siren and bloodthirsty, although it was predictable in parts and I wasn’t too sure about the ending it was throughly enjoyable and so sassy!
- Gemina – Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
It took me a little while longer to warm to it than its predecessor but Gemina is another absolute gem that I’ve read this year, it’s such a great balance of terror, humor and feels.
- The Cruel Prince – by Holly Black
I’m not shocked that I liked this as much as I did, it shows the rougher, more animatistic side of the Fae which I enjoy reading about and it didn’t pull it’s punchees. It made me angry, it made me laugh and it kept me totally hooked throughout, I already can’t wait for The Wicked King!
That actually turned out to be more difficult than I thought! I’ve loved a good few books this year but there have been a few that I’m not sure I liked enough that I would have described them as my favourites. I know for sure though that this list will probably look completley different by the end of the year as I have so many great books still to read! Let me know if you took part in today’s prompt for #Six For Sunday and I’ll check out you six favourite books of this year so far! Now I better get back to my NaNo project as I’m seriously behind o my word count for today.
