The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
Utterly gripping and intense, it drags you into it’s alternative world from the first page and makes everything there completely believable.
I was so tense the whole time I was reading it, seriously I know authors are meant to put their characters through hell and all but Suzanne Collins really does a number on Katniss, it just doesn’t stop for the poor girl.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer
Strange name, excellent book. I wasn't sure about the concept as the whole book is told in letters but I absolutely loved it. It's set in occupied Guernsey during WWII and it really made the period come alive.
The Miracle at Speedy Motors - Alexander McCall Smith
I was getting kind of tired of these books but I think i read too many to close together becasue I liked this one. All AMS trademarks are here and it is a nice gentle tale.
His Dark Materials (Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass) - Philip Pullman
This was a re-read and I can not say how much I ADORE these books (The Subtle Knife is my very favourite). The world Pullman creates is so rich in detail, his imagination is sweeping and his story telling skills amazing. I love the way he weaves so many big, important ideas into a incredibly exciting page turner. Read them, I guarantee if nothing else you'll want a demon!
