    I'm a bit worried how long my post in this thread will be at the end of the year lol 😖

    I usually love reading books in 2-3 days but can finish in 1-2 days if it's short and a page turner.

    Sure 😄 my favourite reads this year have been-

    Anna And The French Kiss (book 1) by Stephanie Perkins. It's about a 17 yo who gets sent to France to complete high school. I loved the foreign aspect.

    I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. About twins who have drifted apart it's told by both aspects but in different times.

    Landline by Rainbow Rowell. It's about a married couple who are having issues and there's a time travel phone.

    The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R Carey. It's a zombie apocalypse with a twist.

    The Rosie Project (book 1) by Graeme Simsion. It really is like Sheldon dating.

    I'm currently reading The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey. I'm only about 85 pages in but so far it's looking to up at the top too. It's about an post alien apocalypse.

    If you enjoy vampire kick butt heroine adult fiction books, Sookie Stackhouse and Anita Blake series are awesome.

    Or a young adult version would be the vampire academy.

    I've also heard really good things about these series but I havn't read them yet so I don't know if there as good as hyped.

    The mortal instruments series (the city of bones etc)
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/....City_of_Bones

    The infernal devices series (follow up from mortal instruments and apparently even better)
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...lockwork-angel

    The Duff by Kody Keplinger
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6931356-the-duff

    The miniaturist by Jessie burton
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...he-miniaturist

    Angelfall series
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11500217-angelfall

    Throne of glass series
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...hrone-of-glass

    The darkest minds series
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17262250-juvie

    Juvie by Steve Watkins, it apparently has an orange is the new black feel to it.
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17262250-juvie

    Outlander by Diana Gabaldon has a historical, time travel romance feel.
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10964.Outlander

    Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/68428.Mistborn

    The first fifteen lives of Harry August by Claire North
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...f-harry-august

    Cinder series
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11235712-cinder

    Daughter of smoke and bone series
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...-of-smoke-bone

    Shatter me series
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10429045-shatter-me

    Hope I've helped 😄 I'm so glad I joined good reads it really is awesome to find books your interested in and keep track of what you want to read 👍😀

    As for books I hated, the wolf gift and the stand.

    Love all these suggestions. Just curious as to whether you all buy the paper book or use a Kindle/iPad?

    I read real copies I can't get into kindles or ebooks and I get them all from the library. If I read something I love and want to own to re read at some point I'll buy it. I also get cheap second hand books.

    Has anyone read the hunger games or divergent? Are they worth it?
