BEST IN BOOKS 2013
Vicious by V. E. Schwab. A genius, vicious book. Who needs pretty heroes when there are villains with beautiful brains?
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. I’d heard way too many good things about it that I was sure I’d love it but it fell flat for me. George is adorable and Tim is the best of My Life Next Door so I’m pretty excited about his book, The Boy Most Likely To, despite the fact that it’s set to release in 2015.
This one, of course.
Romitri, Pynch and Chaolena which basically means Vampire Academy, The Raven Cycle and Throne of Glass.
All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill. My heart was yell-beating throughout the book.
