FEATURE & FOLLOW FRIDAY
Q: What was your favorite book of 2014 -- or books if you can't name just one?
Last year went by so fast. As always there were several new releases but the ones who stuck the most with me have to be:
Ashes to Ashes
The conclusion to the Burn for Burn series took me by surprise. I kept reminding myself that this was a collaboration, and so, for the authors to dig so far into the taboo subject of suicide that way and agree, translates as a good artistic connection.
Better off Friends
Nothing compares to the romance of first love. Short, sweet and heartbreaking as well.
Miss Peregrine's home for Peculiar Children was so bizarre, I didn't expect the sequel to be able to keep up. Not only did it keep up, but managed to surprise me.
The Walled City
YA or NA? Not sure if the topic of sex slaves fits in the YA genre as introduced into the market, but nevertheless, the book had interesting characters with an all action plot.
We Were Liars
I fully understand why it won best YA fiction on Goodreads this year. At first sight, the fragmented sentences and short chapters got on my nerves. I thought the author had trouble with her printer or something. But after the revealing ending -- it all made sense.
