1) I'm going to cheat and list every Jennifer L. Armentrout book that I've read this year as one entry: Jennifer continues to amaze me. I have yet to be disappointed by one of her books. Honestly? For me? Deity and Opal were, by far, my favorite reads this year.
3) Cinder (Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer: This book was fantastic. I didn't really have high expectations after reading Cinder & Ella, another fairytale adaption, which, while I enjoyed, wasn't that great. Thankfully, Cinder proved to be an amazing read. Now, I'm just going to need Scarlet to come out a bit sooner...
4) Wool (Wool #1) by Hugh Howey: This was actually released last year, but I only just recently got around to reading it, but wow. Easily one of the best novelettes that I've ever read. Yes, ever.
5) Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick: This book has gotten a lot of mixed feedback from readers, which is entirely understandable, but I absolutely loved it. For me, well, I read this book back in January, and I still find myself thinking about it from time to time.
I won't be around much today, so I just want to wish all of you a very safe and happy new year. You guys have been amazing this year. Even though I don't have a lot of readers, I appreciate those that I do have - you're all wonderful, and I adore each and every one of you.
