Happy Tuesday, Booknerdigans!
The best, most life- and game-changing 2015 book for me was written by this author called Jojo Moyes. No seriously I looked at reality in a different light after this book. If you’re planning to read this, don’t trust the hype. Just. Damn. Read.
2. Patrick Ness
My first of Ness’s, A Monster Calls, was plainly the appetizer one needs to get on the main course. Palatable with bits of emotional punch on the side.
3. Sarah J. Maas
I stepped into the realms of book blogging astonished by how much hype this Maas gal gets. I mean, I have no idea who she is acclaimed to be the next big star in YA-dom. I tried her Throne of Glass series and though I’m not the biggest fan, it was bearable.. and um, good.
4. Jennifer Niven
Her writing style is what sold me. She banged the crowd with All the Bright Places, her debut YA. The promise of this making me bawl out ugly tears wasn’t realized but that doesn’t mean I loathed it. Well, it’s just that Jojo Moyes’s Me Before You remains the A-1 on books with such genre for me.
5. John Grisham
I know he’s a veteran in the field of writing and I’m certain he knows what he’s putting into paper being a legal eagle himself. It’s just that books where pages are overly occupied with words are not my cup of tea. But well my first of his, The Firm, debunked all that.
6. Leigh Bardugo
Let me just clear things up. Leigh Bardugo is a celebrated author, a singer, and a make-up artist in Hollywood, a fantasy dream builder and crasher. What can’t she do?! Oh I forgot. She’s a Yale graduate too. Pfft. No big deal!
7. Jenny Han
Clearly, Jenny Han’s way past the adolescent phase already but her novels reveal otherwise. They’re just within close quarters with what exactly transpires in high school! I have a theory she kept a journal of everything she went through in her teen years or she just has the biggest memory bank.
8. Stephanie Perkins
Stephanie Perkins’ name conjures cloud nines and chocolates and fancy unicorn and sugar (heaps of them) and stuffed animals and warm hugs and paradise and heavenly pastry and.. When fantasy books get taxing on the head, her books are sort of therapeutic.
9. Sarah Dessen
Sarah Dessen books were a thing since the Rennaisance Period but yeah, the Stone Age was pretty much my comfort zone. Her name only registered on me when I started blogging. A big THANK YOU to Summer @ Xingsings and Erika @ Bookventureland for introducing this to me.
10. Gillian Flynn
Elucidate me on how this angellic face splashed with innocence beguiles people into believing she can’t craft dark and twisted plots with badass female personalities. She just Wingardium Leviosa-ed stereotyping into oblivion!
