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.
Curl up on your sofa with a cup of tea, make sure you have a box of tissues and maybe a cat handy, and fall into On The Other Side. This is Carrie Hope Fletcher’s first novel and boy did she come out with a bang! I read this wonderful story full of love and magical realism in one sitting and suggest you do the same.
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.
