How do you choose which books to read? Many times, I’ll pick up a book because of the hype – or the buzz – on blogs or in the media. Here are 3 books that I thought totally worthy of the hype.
Dreams of Gods & Monsters (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3), Laini Taylor
The hype was huge for the first book in this series (Daughter of Smoke & Bone), which I also LOVED and told EVERYBODY that they should read. The hype didn’t die down for books 2 (Days of Blood & Starlight) – loved it hard too – and 3 (Dreams of Gods & Monsters), which I read earlier this year. It was a beautiful finish to a really well written series which left . The audiobooks were a pleasure to listen to, and I thought experiencing the books this way really enhanced the experience.
The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins
This was another audiobook experience that was phenomenal – although in this case, I don’t think it better than reading the physical book. Though the main character isn’t always likable – oh my gosh isn’t she’s just a bit of a sad sap! – but the mystery was delightful to follow and unravel. It made my list of 3 Books Where The Suspense Almost Killed Me.
Uprooted, Naomi Novik
Uprooted was named once of the Best Books of 2015 by both Publisher’s Weekly and Amazon, and I couldn’t agree more. This book will hook you from the first chapter and never let you go. It had me itching to read it every minute of the day!
