Ever since she turned sixteen, people have been forgetting Hope. First her teachers, then her friends, and finally her parents. She has to survive in a world where people forget her as soon as they turn away, she can only rely on herself. She becomes a thief and when a job leads down a dark path, she becomes hunted as well.
I’m pleased to say that so far this year I have read 73 books out of my target of 100 (according to Goodreads that’s 17 books ahead of schedule). I have decided that it’s time to share with you a list of my favourite reads from various categories and genres. I recommend every book on this list and absolutely insist that you immediately buy and read all of them.
Favourite New Fantasy Series
Brent Weeks is a genius. His Lightbringer series is completely refreshing and individual, the magic system is based on converting, or drafting, light to make tangible things. You can read my full review of the first book, The Black Prism, here. There are currently three books released (all over 700 pages in length) and book four is due to be release on October 25th this year! Excited doesn’t even cover it.
Welcome to the ‘Mid-Year Book Freak Out’ Tag. This seemed like a nice way to wrap up the first half of the year so here we go!
1. Best book you’ve read so far in 2016.

My reading game this month has been a little up and down but I think I’m through the worst of it! I read 9 books overall and am currently trying to read about 100 pages a day. This is where I stand with my 2016 Reading Challenge of 100 books:
Stop what you a doing! Immediately! Go and download the audiobook of Claire North’s The First Fifteen Lives Of Harry August. It will change the way you think. This wonderful novel gripped me from the very first sentence and the narrator, Peter Kenny, was a revelation.
