So, it’s getting to the end of the year and I’ve decided it’s the time to do Jamie @ The Perpetual Page-Turner’s End of Year Survey. I can’t see myself reading many more books this year, and those will mostly be rereads. So, here’s my round up of 2014. Reading-wise, it’s been pretty good (although things certainly slowed down a bit during my first semester at uni!) (Also, this is just the first part. There’ll be more tomorrow! And here it is.)
Number of Books I Read: 107
Number of Rereads: 7
Genre You Read The Most From: Unsurprisingly, it’s fantasy!
Best In Books
1. Best book you read in 2014?
This one is really, really hard. I’ve got about six really good ones to choose from, but I think I’m going to go for Since You’ve Been Gone. I connected with this book so much and I wanted to reread it pretty much instantly.
2. Book you were excited about and thought you were going to love more, but didn’t?
City of Heavenly Fire. I was expecting so much more from the finale of the series. Don’t get me wrong, it was good, but I was hoping for better.
3. Most surprising (in a good way or a bad way) book you read in 2014?
Hmm, The 100 (in a bad way). I started watching the show before reading the books and loved it, so the book was definitely a bit of a disappointment. I thought it would be really good – clearly not.
4. Book you “pushed” the most people to read (and they did) in 2014?
I’m always pushing books on people, but my biggest success this year was getting my sister to finally read Percy Jackson. She’s been refusing for the past few years, but the moment I left for university, she started the series. And she LOVES it!
