7 Favorite Books Read This Year!

I’m a pretty eclectic reader when I’m not taking in all the new YA novels that people rave about. I also like my share of nonfiction—it helps me dream about new stories. So here are the Top 7 Books I’ve read in the last year.

Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell: I cannot wait for this to become a movie. I adored the unique, seldom-depicted Asian hero and the awkward, overweight heroine. I loved their raw realness. This unlikely, heartfelt romance captured me just as it did everyone else.

Shadow & Bone, by Leigh Bardugo: Can June hurry up and get here? My whole family was drawn into the first two books in the Grisha Trilogy and Bardugo’s fascinating, vaguely Russian world filled with people of light and dark powers.

Blackmoore, by Julianne Donaldson: Now honestly, I’m not a huge Austen fan. If you read my fiction, I tend to love the hardcore action and adventure and heroic stuff. But Donaldson depicts such a lovely, quiet countryside, such genteel characters and such understated action (that still says so much) that I think it would be quite lovely to spend a bit of time in England now.

The Gray Wolf Throne, by Cindy Chima: After my husband and I finished the last in this series, I spent a fair amount of time on Twitter, trying to bully Cindy into a fifth book (I think I failed). I couldn’t bear that it was over. She weaves together an impressive cast in this epic fantasy series.

Nothing Daunted, by Dorothy Wickenden: Part history of the USA c.1913 and part personal history of two newly-minted Smith teachers who head west to teach in a one-room schoolhouse in frontier-Colorado, I was mesmerized. I still can’t believe women would do such a thing, and even with my own propensity toward adventure, I’m not sure I’d ever do the same. I admire them even more because of it.

The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green: An ill-fated love. A desperate bid for life. Need I say more? Everyone’s read it, right? RIGHT? If you haven’t….sheesh. Get thee to a bookstore. Phenomenal. Funny, poignant. Flat-out awesome. And again, a movie I eagerly anticipate.

The Winter Sea, by Susanna Kearsley: Since I can’t afford to travel to Europe right now, this gave me a little dose of it, and with a little time-travel twist to boot. And given my love for time travel (see my River of Time Series), I thought it an utter delight.
