Top Ten Books I Read In 2014

(TTT is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)


These are really no surprise, right?! At the end of last year I read the first Mistborn book and since then I read one Sanderson book at least every 2nd month.

Series: Magisterium #1


Most kids would do anything to pass the Iron Trial.

Not Callum Hunt. He wants to fail.

So he tries his best to do his worst – and fails at failing.

Now the Magisterium awaits him. It’s a place that’s both sensational and sinister, with dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future.

The Iron Trial is just the beginning, for the biggest test is still to come . . .

Review: Monstrous Affections


Monstrous Affections

Release Date: September 2014


Series: -


Predatory kraken that sing with – and for – their kin; band members and betrayed friends who happen to be demonic; harpies as likely to attract as to repel. Welcome to a world where humans live side-by-side with monsters, from vampires both nostalgic and bumbling, to an eight-legged alien who makes tea. Here you’ll find mercurial forms that burrow into warm fat, spectral boy toys, a Maori force of nature, a landform that claims lives, and an architect of hell on earth. Through these, and a few monsters that defy categorization, some of today’s top young-adult authors explore ambition and sacrifice, loneliness and rage, love requited and avenged, and the boundless potential for connection, even across extreme borders.

Bookish Spreadsheet for 2015

One of the reasons why I’m excited about the start of a new year is that I can start using a new spreadsheet. I’ve used them for years to keep track of the books I read and got, just because I LOVE making lists. I come up with a new one every year and as there are always people who want me to share them, here is my new one for 2015.
