– Taken by Erin Bowman. The cover reeled me in and I was SO. EXCITED. for this. I got a review copy and I was going to pre-order the hardcover as well because that’s how excited I was. But rather than love it, I got seriously pissed off with the main protagonist (he’s an abusive ass) and the plot was generic.
– City of a Thousand Dolls by Miriam Forster. Again, I was soooooo excited. I thought this was going to be a great YA fantasy, and YA needs more of those. It was good, and I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t amazing. The best thing about the book was my cat/human ship.
– Feedback by Robison Wells. UGH. UGHHHHHH. I am so annoyed with the way this one ended. What even was that. I loved Variant, so I was expecting great things. Instead Wells took my expectations and stomped on them.
– Altered by Jennifer Rush. This was a totally random read for me. I was in between review books, and I thought I’d pick up a random debut from my friend’s reading pile. I had no idea what this was about as I started reading it, and I freakin’ adored it! It’s one of my two favourite reads of the year so far.
– Variant by Robison Wells. Daph had told me over and over about how great this book was and I didn’t believe her. Well, I believed her that it was great, but I didn’t think I’d love it as much as I did. I loved the mystery, the characters, the twists… Everything!
– The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan. It was…not what I expected, and not in a good way. Definitely not the book for me.
– Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy. I EXPECTED AN EPIC ROMANCE AND A FABULOUS FEMALE CHARACTER A LA SCARLETT O’HARA. INSTEAD I GOT AN INCREDIBLY FICKLE WOMAN AND A POMPOUS DICK OF A ROMANTIC INTEREST.
– Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. Lol wtf was this? I had high hopes for it being a creepy, unsettling book full of intriguing characters but that didn’t happen because of the lazy execution of what could have been a great story.
– The Knife of Letting Go by Patrick Ness. THIS SERIES HAS RUINED MY GODDAMN LIFE. IT IS ON MY LIST OF MOST TRAUMATIC/STRESSFUL BOOKS I’VE EVER READ.
– Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. An impulse buy that worked out great 😀
