End of Year Book Survey 2013

best books 2013 end of year survey 
Hellooo Everyone!

So the awesome Jamie over at The Perpetual Page-Turner has created an end of year book survey, which is basically what I'm filling out today. I hope you enjoy my scrambling through Goodreads to come up with answers to a question..

Best Books in 2013

1. Best book you read in 2013? (If you have to cheat — you can break it down by genre)
Contemporary- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This book just automatically became one of my favourite books ever and left me in tears. That doesn't mean it's not one of the most beautiful books I've read.
Action- Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson. I read this book this year, and with it I found one of my favourite authors ever. Thank goodness I read it!
Dystopian- Angelfall by Susan Ee. I can not describe how quickly I fell in love with this book and it's characters, and I am anticipating the 3rd book -which comes out next year- so much!

2. Book you were excited about & thought you were going to love more but didn’t?


This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen. Everyone seems to adore Sarah Dessen's books, but I ended up being the outcast when it came to this one. I thought I would love it so much, but it turned out that I didn't actually like it that much at all...

3. Most surprising (in a good way!) book of 2013? 


Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly. I didn't end up liking this book that much, but I learned so much from it. I actually got a really good mark in my end of year history essay thingy because of the information from The French Revolution that I had got from this book!!

4. Book you read in 2013 that you recommended to people most in 2013?


  The thing is, I don't tend to remember what book I tell people to read, but it's probably The Fault in Our Stars again. I can promise you that I will also continue recommending it in 2014... and 2015..

5. Best series you discovered in 2013?


Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi. This series just gives me way too many feels and I LOVE IT SO BAD! When I read Through the Ever Night all those feels just resurfaced again and I can't wait to read Into the Still Blue.

6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2013?


Megan Shepherd. She's just such a good writer, and her Madman's Daughter series has convinced me that she's definitely a writer to watch out for.

7. Best book that was out of your comfort zone or was a new genre for you?

 You may know about my dislike for Vampires, but this year I decided to venture out there and try The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. I couldn't of made a better decision. It's one of my favourite books of the year and has convinced me to try and read books with Vampires in them instead of just slowly inching away..

8. Most thrilling, unputdownable book in 2013?


The Elites by Natasha Ngan. I adored this book, and I read it when I was on holiday. This meant it was basically carted backwards and forwards from the beach with me...but it was SO GOOD! What else was I meant to do?

9. Book you read in 2013 that you are most likely to re-read next year?


The thing is, I don't really tend to re-read books because my TBR pile is always growing so I don't really have the time. What I do do, is re-read my favourite passages of books. I'm gonna cheat a bit, because I read this book in 2012 but I'm most likely going to re-read The Hunger Games. I can never get enough of this series, and I always go back to it when I'm in need of an old favourite.

10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2013?


9415956
Sweetly by Jackson Pearce. This book has such an awesome cover, as do the rest of the books in the series. It's quite simply but it just works- which is what it so good about it!


11. Most memorable character in 2013? 


Harriet Manners from Geek Girl. Oh gosh, she's just one of my favourite characters ever! The situations she manages to get herself in are just so funny, and Harriet herself is extremely hilarious!

12. Most beautifully written book read in 2013?


The book that comes to mind is Golden by Jessi Kirby. This was such a beautiful book and it was the first book I reviewed for a publisher. I remember loving it when I read it back in March, so it's saying something that I remember it since it's been ages since I first read it!

13. Book that had the greatest impact on you in 2013? 


I think every book has some impact on me in some way, but I don't think I can ever pin point one. If I had to think of one, I would probably The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I can not described the impact this book had on me. I think it has to be one of favourite books because the message was so strong and in the end it was a beautiful but sad story which ended up teaching me so much about awful things such as segregation. I feel that it has helped me shape my own opinions on the subject and I'm so, so glad I read it.

 14. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2013 to finally read? 


Virals by Kathy Reichs. I picked this book up from the library, and I love this series! I can't believe I had never heard of this series, so it just goes to show how awesome libraries are!

 15. Favorite passage/quote from a book you read In 2013?


I have so many quotes and passages that I love, but I'm terrible at keeping track at them- even though there are some that are permanently engrained in my mind. What I'm going to do after Xmas is keep a quotes book, but for now, here is a passage from The Fault in Our Stars that I love!

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book. And then there are books like An Imperial Affliction, which you can't tell people about, books so special and rare and yours that advertising your affection feels like betrayal”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars 

16.Shortest & longest book you read In 2013?


Shortest - Rendezvous in Russia by Lauren St John, which is 192 pages long.
Longest - The Host by Stephanie Meyer, which is 619 pages long.

17. Book that had a scene in it that had you reeling and dying to talk to somebody about it? 


Allegiant by Veronica Roth. He..he..he...That ending was like pain in book form because IT WAS SO SAD AND I COULDN'T SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS.

18. Favorite relationship from a book you read in 2013 (be it romantic, friendship, etc):


I really like Kat and Hale's relationship in Heist Society by Ally Carter. They are best friends and also complete and utter sweethearts! They are perfect for each other which means that Perfect Scoundrels was extremely pleasing for many fans like moi..!

19. Favorite book you read in 2013 from an author you’ve read previously:


The One Dollar Horse by Lauren St John. I adore her books and I've read all of them! The One Dollar Horse is as good as all her other books, so it made me an extremely happy bunny.

20. Best book you read in 2013 that you read based SOLELY on a recommendation from somebody else:


I'm an extremely hard person to book push...hehe! Some of the books I've read have been because other bloggers have raved about them, but I don't exactly have any that someone told me I had to read! I do have a few I will read though, so I'm going to cheat. Those books are Fire by Heather James and The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

21. Genre you read the most from in 2013?


From looking at Goodreads I'd say probably Dystopian/Post-apocalyptic or Fantasy/adventure books. Yeah... that probably encompasses a whole load of books but...

22. Best 2013 debut you read?


The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd.

23. Most vivid world/imagery in a book you read in 2013?


The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. I loved the fey world and there were some really great creatures which aided me in having a extremely vivid image of that world in my head.

24. Book that was the most fun to read in 2013?


You Wish by Mandy Hubbard. Seriously, this book is so good and will make you laugh! The things that happen are ridiculous (pink ponies anyone?) which is what makes it so good!

25. Book that made you cry or nearly cry in 2013?


Since I've mentioned The Fault in Our Stars and Allegiant, I'm going to say If I Stay by Gayle Forman.. It's SO SAD people, and the car crash is absolutely terrifying too..

26. Book you read in 2013 that you think got overlooked this year or when it came out?

  The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken. Many people have read this book, but I think it's a shame that it doesn't have a UK publisher.. I want loads more people to read it, because I really enjoyed it!

 

Book Blogging/ Reading Life of 2013

 1. New favorite book blog you discovered in 2013? 

Ooh! Well.. I started blogging this year, so I discovered a whole host of blogs.. I've been really busy lately so I have to catch up with all the posts on bloglovin'... but my favourite, new blog? ALL THE BLOGS.

2. Favorite review that you wrote in 2013? 


I'm the sort of person that my favourite reviews are those of my favourite books.. The ones I'm most proud of are my Letters From a Reader which I only do for books that really move me.

3. Best discussion you had on your blog?


Oh, hands down this one. If you're interested, my sister basically owned me in terms of morals and the right thing to do..


4. Most thought-provoking review or discussion you read on somebody else’s blog?


*screams at herself* ORGANIZATION. I have the memory of a goldfish, but I really like Sophie's discussions. They bring up really good points and I enjoy participating in them when I can.

5. Best moment of book blogging/your book life in 2013?


Uhh... So many things have happened this year: I started this blog, made loads of blogging friends, started getting ARCs from publishers, and so much more. The main for me is that with this blog, I found something that I really love doing, and that I wouldn't stop doing for the world.

7. Most popular post this year on your blog (whether it be by comments or views)?


It was this Q&A I did with Sarah Alderson. It was such an amazing opportunity, and I'm so glad I got to do a Q&A with her!! *fangirls*

8. Post you wished got a little more love?


The Book Boyfriends VS Boy Bands discussion I did with Amber. I had so much fun doing it, but I would like to maybe have had some more comments to know what others thought of it!

9. Best bookish discover (book related sites, book stores, etc.)?


I found that you could get personalized stamps for books! I'm getting one for Xmas and it has my name on, which means that instead of writing my name in a book, I can now just stamp it! I'll put a picture on here when I get it.

10.  Did you complete any reading challenges or goals that you had set for yourself at the beginning of this year?

Uh, nope. I partook in a debut-a-thon but no challenges unfortunately!! 

Looking Ahead to 2014..

 

1. One book you didn’t get to in 2013 but will be your number 1 priority in 2014?


I tried to start reading A Tale of Two Cities, but I ended up getting distracted by other books... I really want to read it though, so I'll try an make sure I do next year.
2. Book you are most anticipating for 2014 (non-debut)?
Probably Cristin Terrill's new book: The sequel to All Our Yesterdays. I'm itching to find out what happens!

3. 2014 debut you are most anticipating?

 Vivian Divine is Dead by Lauren Sabel. I've got a review copy of this, but I'm so eager to see what happens! It hope it's as good as it seems- if not better!


4. Series ending you are most anticipating in 2014?


Possibly, City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. I can't wait to read it and find out what happens but I'm also really scared..

5. One thing you hope to accomplish or do in your reading/blogging in 2014? 

To keep on blogging as much as possible and get involved with so much more stuff! I also want to try and meet more authors when I have the opportunity!

 

Thanks for reading this!! 

 Bye! xx

But Emma can't tell her mother anything. Because her mother is brain-dead and being kept alive by machines for the baby growing inside her.

Meeting bad-boy Caleb Harrison wouldn't have interested Old Emma. But New Emma-the one who exists in a fog of grief, who no longer cares about school, whose only social outlet is her best friend Olivia-New Emma is startled by the connection she and Caleb forge.

Feeling her own heart beat again wakes Emma from the grief that has grayed her existence. Is there hope for life after death-and maybe, for love?

Top Ten Books I Wouldn't Mind Santa Bringing Me

17162080
1. Two Lies and a Spy by Kat Carlton
I pretty much adore spy/heist books, so I can't resist the sound of this! It seems like my type of book, and I really like the cover- anyone else love it too?

12294652
2. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
I have heard people singing this book's praises for quite a while, and I adore the premise. It's one of those books you just want to get your hands on as soon as possible!

7991200
3. Angel by L.A.Weatherly
I was recommended this book by a friend, and since I love books about Angels it's been itching at the back of mind, telling me to read it, so I definitely wouldn't mind if Santa got this for me!

15745753
4. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
This is another one of those books that I suspect that if I don't read it soon, Twitter will attack. To say the least, if Santa's interested in my safety he would give me this book.. ;)

11235712
5. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I've mentioned before that I wanted to read this, and the other day I downloaded a sample onto my Kindle. Needless to say, I've kind of fallen in love with it and I have to get my hands on a copy soon...

15283043
6. The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
This is another sweet, contemporary book that I need to read! It seems quite a happy/lovey story so it's perfect for when I want to read something that will make me smile!

13481748
7.  Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
I think this is one of those cry-yourself-to-sleep books but everyone seems to love it, so I'm determined to give it a go! It's also a historical fiction so, need I say more?

13112869
8. Not a Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis
I'm pretty sure that I witnessed quite a few bloggers having breakdowns due to wanting to read this book so bad. These events hold promised that this will be an awesome book..
 
12157407
9. In The After by Demitria Lunetta
I read to many dystopian books..AND I don't even do it on purpose or consider it my favourite genre! Still, this is an example that I will never stop wanting to gain more skills on how to survive the apocalypse..
  
13018503
10. The Rules for Disappearing by Ashley Elston
The blurb of this book just seems so good, but unfortunately there isn't a UK edition... Yet. Then again, Santa can be awesome and get me a copy..?
 PEOPLE WHO ARE READING THIS ON XMAS EVE: Are you jealous that I get to open my presents at Midnight? Hehe, it's a tradition in Portugal! :D Anyway, I hope you all have a great Christmas!
Bye! xx

To defeat the darkness, she must first embrace it.

Months have passed since Juliet Moreau returned to civilization after escaping her father's island—and the secrets she left behind. Now, back in London once more, she is rebuilding the life she once knew and trying to forget Dr. Moreau’s horrific legacy—though someone, or something, hasn’t forgotten her.

As people close to Juliet fall victim one by one to a murderer who leaves a macabre calling card of three clawlike slashes, Juliet fears one of her father’s creations may have also escaped the island. She is determined to find the killer before Scotland Yard does, though it means awakening sides of herself she had thought long banished, and facing loves from her past she never expected to see again.

As Juliet strives to stop a killer while searching for a serum to cure her own worsening illness, she finds herself once more in the midst of a world of scandal and danger. Her heart torn in two, past bubbling to the surface, life threatened by an obsessive killer—Juliet will be lucky to escape alive. -(Goodreads)

Bring Out the Book Boyfriends: Raffe

Hello Everyone!

Since the following Book Boyfriend is one of my favourites, I decided I just HAD to feature him! Also, since we don't know that much about him, I couldn't do a traditional fact file so there is not that much information!

 Thanks so much to Octavia and Lauren for letting me use their Raffe-loving quotes in this post! Spread the Raffe love people!

Bye! xx




If you've read Angelfall, tell me why you love Raffe!

Discussion with an Eight Year Old: Being Bilingual


Discussion with an Eight Old is basically a discussion feature where I talk to my eight year old sister, Inês, about a certain topic. I hope you enjoy it!


Topic: Being Bilingual

Rita: Someone on Twitter suggested this topic to me, (Thanks Arianne!) and I thought it would be a great thing to discuss- even though it's not exactly about books. For the purpose of anyone who doesn't know this already, me and my sister are both from Portugal so we speak fluent English and Portuguese. For me, that's completely normal but people are always really curious when they find out so I thought I'd do a discussion on it. Ines, how do people react when they find out you speak a different language?

Ines: People always start asking me how to say something in Portuguese, or ask me to teach them something in Portuguese.

Rita: It's the same for me. It's always really hard to know what to say because I find it hard to just think of something off the top of my head! You sometimes get people who constantly plague you with questions like that, and it can be a bit awkward.. Most people react well though, and asking me how to say something doesn't really annoy me. Do you find it easy to switch between languages, etc.

Ines: It's not that easy for me because I get Portuguese and English mixed up sometimes. Sometimes I say a word in Portuguese when I'm speaking in England or the other way round.

Rita: The same happens to me. I can switch really quickly though from English to Portuguese or from Portuguese to English. When you get older, it'll probably be easier for you to do that, though. Something that's quite funny though, is that I don't like speaking English with my parents. We speak Portuguese at home, but when I have friends round, for example, I sometimes have to speak English with my parents for my friend's benefit but I really don't like doing that for some reason!

Rita: Something else I don't like doing is reading books in Portuguese. I don't know why, and it might be to do with the fact that I haven't read many books that actually interest me in Portuguese.. The ones I have tried to read have been quite complicated... However, I am really making an effort to read more books in Portuguese (You may have noticed that I accept books in Portuguese for review.) and I think I will have to try a few YA ones to see if I manage to finish them!

Ines: I like to read the Monica comics in Portuguese, because you can read along with the pictures and they are really funny and cool to read. The characters are unique too: Monica has a rabbit and she always hits people with it, Magali is always eating, Cebolinha is always saying mean things to Monica, and Cascao doesn't like having a bath!

Rita: I love those comics too! They are really funny to read, and if you ever see them in English you HAVE to buy them!! I hope you enjoyed this discussion! Bye!

Ines: Bye!

Are you Bilingual? If so what languages do you speak and what are your experiences? If you're not, what other language would you like to speak and what are your experiences with other languages?
 Bye!! xx

The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Hello Everyone!

Seventeen-year-old Cassie is a natural at reading people. Piecing together the tiniest details, she can tell you who you are and what you want. But it’s not a skill that she’s ever taken seriously. That is, until the FBI come knocking: they’ve begun a classified program that uses exceptional teenagers to crack infamous cold cases, and they need Cassie.

What Cassie doesn’t realize is that there’s more at risk than a few unsolved homicides— especially when she’s sent to live with a group of teens whose gifts are as unusual as her own.

Sarcastic, privileged Michael has a knack for reading emotions, which he uses to get inside Cassie’s head—and under her skin. Brooding Dean shares Cassie’s gift for profiling, but keeps her at arm’s length.

Soon, it becomes clear that no one in the Naturals program is what they seem. And when a new killer strikes, danger looms closer than Cassie could ever have imagined. Caught in a lethal game of cat and mouse with a killer, the Naturals are going to have to use all of their gifts just to survive. -(Goodreads)

Geek Girl: Model Misfit by Holly Smale

Hello Everyone!

I received this book for review from the lovely people at Harper Collins -in exchange for a fair and honest review, of course!-, so thank you to them for sending it to me! This is the second book in the Geek Girl series, and it was just as awesome -if not awesome-er- than the first!

Title: Model Misfit
Author: Holly Smale
Series: Geek Girl #2
Source: Publisher
Publisher: Harper Collins
Published: September 26th 2013
No. of Pages: 356


“My name is Harriet Manners, and I am still a geek.”

Harriet knows that modelling won’t transform you. She knows that being as uniquely odd as a polar bear isn’t necessarily a bad thing (even in a rainforest). And that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this.

What Harriet doesn’t know is where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives.
With summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get as far away from home as possible. But nothing can prepare Harriet for the craziness of Tokyo, her competitive model flatmates and her errant grandmother’s ‘chaperoning’. Or seeing gorgeous Nick everywhere she goes.

Because, this time, Harriet knows what a broken heart feels like.

Can geek girl find her place on the other side of the world or is Harriet lost for good?

I have heard LOADS about this book, and I know I have to read it. It's been on my TBR for a while now, but I can't wait till I can get my hands on a copy. Plus, Judith will be proud.. ;)

AMY AMY AMY, ARE YOU PROUD!?!! I've got a copy of Fire for review from the lovely author and I can't wait to get started! I'm sure it will be awesome.

8. Antigoddess by Kendare Blake
This book has been on my shelf for AGEESSS, but I will read it! It seems quite scary, so I think this book will be for me to read in the morning, otherwise there is no way I'll be able to fall asleep!

9.Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
 Another book that has been on shelf and that I have to read!! I've read a bit already, but I keep putting it down when I realise that there are ARC books I need to read and review, and then I go into a mad, frantic panic when I realise I haven't read any of them...

10. The Enemy by Charlie Higson
ZOMBIEEEESS. Also, I got it signed... so EEEEKKKK!
 I'm amazingly bad at actually having a list that says "Winter TBR" so I decided to look at my TBR list and choose which ones I'll be reading in the winter!
Bye! xx
