First a disclaimer: due to random multiple hour updates my laptop is unusable. I am doing this on my phone. This will likely mean hilarious autocorrects and really terrible layouts.
And on we go…
Over at Sarah reads too much we have been asked to tell you about three books that we have read this year that are really special.
I stared at my book case for a long time before settling on ten. Then I realised that she said three, so I whittled it down to 14, 6, 11 and eventually three.
The first was easy.
The age of Miracles is probably one of the most interesting, scarily possible end of the world books that I have ever read. What if the world stopped turning? It literally took me 24 hours. I didn’t put it down, didn’t sleep. It had me gripped in a way most books do not manage.
I don’t, as a rule, buy books on release. I prefer paperbacks and my budget is limited anyway so I prefer to wait for sales. But the buzz about this one was loud and I adore Kiersten’s work. Therefore it was a treat to me. I’m only sad that it is a standalone because the world and characters need to be explored more.
Probably the most perfect, most unfair and most devastating story ever. And the first time that I have hated the protagonist on page one, and cried for her by the end.
