Five Friday Favourites, #1

Five Friday Favourites is a weekly event hosted by Amanda over at Book Badger. Each week she chooses a subject and everyone is welcome to join in and answer the question. Check out this link for more information and the future subjects. This is my first time doing this meme and I love the topic: Five Favourite Books so far in 2014. I wanted to do a similar post, and this is the perfect time to take part!

I’ve had a mixed year, with a few favourites dotted among a lot of some not so good books. It hasn’t been too hard to select this list, but it adds up to six books rather than five, so I’m tagging one on as a bonus :-)

Five Favourite Books I’ve Read in 2014 (so far)


1. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

What can I say about this book!? I loved every page. I’m currently in the middle of writing a review, and I’m failing miserably. I can’t do it justice. The atmosphere is so dark, haunting and just beautiful. The characters are relatable and seem so real… perfect!

Into the Still Blue

2. Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi

The conclusion of a trilogy is always a bitter sweet moment, especially when it’s one of your favourites. I loved every minute I spent reading each book, and I’m going to miss the characters terribly. So many series have disappointing finale books; it was such a relief that this one finished on the same awesomeness level as Under the Never Sky.

Ashes to Ashes

3. Ashes to Ashes by Karina Halle

Awesome characters, terrifying story, and a romantic Dex… how could this not make my favourites list?! I can't believe the series is almost over. You can sense the end is near, and that ending! What a cliff-hanger, but it'll be worth it. I hope...

The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris

4. The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris by Jenny Colgan

This was my first book by Jenny Colgan and I loved it! She has successfully made me want to travel to Paris and haunt every chocolate shop I can find. And the chocolate recipes at the back of the book are fantastic too!

Amy and Rogers Epic Detour

5. Amy and Rogers Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

This was such a sweet read, and exactly what I needed when I read it. I loved the scrap-book layout, even though it took a little while to get used to it.

Night School: Fracture

Bonus: Fracture by C.J. Daugherty

I love this series, and I had to include it in the list ;) For a series I have no clue what is happening in, I'm completely hooked. I can't even pin it to a specific genre except Young Adult. And Sylvain or Carter... I can't choose!

What has been your favourite book so far this year?


  1. I haven't read any of these. Most are on my to-read list and the loveliest chocolate shop looks so cute! I LOVE chocolate so I will be checking that one out!

    1. It's really good! Trouble is, I ended up craving lots and lots of chocolate when I was reading it. Not complaining mind you!

  2. This is such a great list Alma! I've heard not a lot about Nevermore, so I'll have to consider it much more now, I'll go and see what it's like, and I'm excited to be starting Under the Never Sky series this year, and hopefully Amy and Rogers Epic detour too at some point. The cover's for Night School are so beautiful too, I've never really delved deeper than that, so I'm going to have to now :D Thank you for getting involved :)

    1. Thanks for the meme Amanda, and for visiting! Under the Never Sky is one of my favourite series. I thought each book was strong, and unusually the middle book being the strongest. It's totally worth it, and love triangle free which is such a nice bonus!
