These are are in no particular order. The release date wasn't looked at for this. I simply looked at the 50 books on my read list and selected from there.
1. City of Fallen Angels (Mortal Instruments #4) by Cassandra Clare
This is one of my favourit series. I love Cassandra Clare's writing style and this novel set up the next 2 in the series perfectly. Read my review here.
2. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter
This is Aimee's debut novel. I was sucked into this world she has created. Henry made me fall in love, and Kate has earned a place on my awesome female protaganist list. See the review here.
3. Wither by Lauren DeStefano
An eerie dystopian future that seemed scarily possible. The dynamic between the characters, and the writing itself are all stand outs. Read the review here.
4. Die For Me by Amy Plum
A unique paranormal aspect, a swoon worthy guy, and one of the more smart heroines in YA made this a favourite of mine. Read the review here.
5. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
So much of this plot is super secret. It really would spoil it to give anything away. Simply put - Mara is awesome, Noah Shaw is the ultimate book crush, and the end twist floored me. I am so glad Mara's story is just getting started. Review to come in September..as I said, it's super secret!
6. Forbidden by Tabithia Suzuma
This story grabbed my heart, held on and didn't let go. It left me in tears, and is one of the most beautifully written novels I've read. Read my review here.
7. Divergent by Veronia Roth
The action, the romance, and the world Veronica has created all suck you in. I am so glad that this is just the beginning for Tris and the sexy and dangerous Four. Read my full review here.
8. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
The cutest, most sigh inducing novel I've read so far this year. Stephanie captures that "Does he like me?" deliema perfectly. Plus it has Etienne St Clair. Read the review here.
9. Stolen by Lucy Christopher
My first review. I still haven't shaken this book. It stays with you and haunts you. It's beautifully written and the landscape is so perfectly described that it almost becomes a character itself. Read the review here.
10. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I never thought I would be greateful to the guys who broke my heart...until I read this book. It made me so happy I could experience love in all it's forms..a message I still haven't forgotten. Read the review here.
The Iron Fey series came close to making the list but I couldn't just pick ONE of them to put on here.
I have read some amazing books so far this year and am looking forward to the ones to come. I can't believe this year is half over already!
