Best Books of 2015

So I read quite a few books this year, and I thought it would be fun to share my Best Books of 2015! Now these books weren’t published in 2015, just ones that I read. I will start with number 6 and work my way down to my FAVORITE for the year!

Number Six: The Silence of Six by E.C. Myers23203542

This book was different from anything I’ve read this year, and I was surprised by how I much I really enjoyed it. It follows a boy named Max whose best friend Evan hacks into the live stream of the presidential debate being hosted at there school. He ends up killing himself, but not before sending Max a final message. From there he’s brought back into a life he thought he left behind!

I won’t say much about this one because I did a review which you can check out HERE. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and found myself loving all the characters in this story. I absolutely adore Jase and his family!

Number Four: Under the Never Sky trilogy by Veronica Rossi

This serious is seriously so addicting. I was hooked from the beginning, and I read the trilogy in about a week. I fell in love with characters individually and together. Not only that, but the world that Veronica Rossi created is great!

Number Three: Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout13644052

I won’t say much about this one either because I did a full review as well, HERE. Also this is the fourth book in the LUX series and I don’t want to ruin in. Keep in mind that my review does have spoilers. I will say that I couldn’t stop reading this and I loved the ending so much!

Number Two: Article 5 trilogy by Kristen Simmonsarticle-5-series-banner

This trilogy was a complete and total surprise! From the first chapter I was hooked by the world and the characters! I absolutely loved the relationships and the characters and couldn’t put these books down!

and coming in at Number One is an author: Tillie Cole!

I 118discovered Tillie Cole this summer and have read six of her books so far. I absolutely adore her stories and definitely have to say that all of her books I’ve read have been my favorite this year.

Series Review- Sweet Evil Trilogy

Now I normally don’t do series reviews, but I read all three of the Sweet Evil books by Wendy Higgins this week, and so I thought I would just do a review of the entire trilogy. For those of you who haven’t read the books, the trilogy consists of Sweet Evil, Sweet Peril, and Sweet Reckoning. However, I’ll be quite surprised if you haven’t heard of these before. They’re quite popular, with good reason. To start off I’ll say that overall I did enjoy the trilogy. I’ll have to say I’ll give the trilogy as whole a 3 out of 5. I enjoyed them, but I honestly don’t think I’ll ever reread them, and am glad that I got them from my library.

sweet-evil-trilogy

This trilogy follows Anna Whitt, daughter of Belial, who is a demon and the Duke of Substance Abuse. Her mother was a guardian angel who died during her birth. She was adopted by a woman named Patti and raised in a small town. She always knew she was different, and everything started to make sense when she found out she’s a Neph. One night she’s out with her best friend and human, Jay. They are going to see a band play, and from that night everything changes.

She meets Kaiden Rowe, the drummer and also the son of Parzuph, the Duke of Lust. Kaiden is the boy your parents tell you to stay away from. It’s kind of impossible for Kaiden and Anna though, because right from the first eye contact, they are drawn to each other. As I said right from the first meeting everything changes.NgOe8N8

What did I like about these books? Well I loved the characters(for the most part). What’s really surprising is that, I think I may have loved the side characters more than the main characters. (SHOCKING) Don’t get me wrong, I did like Anna and Kaiden, but they also did get on my nerves a lot! I absolutely loved Patti, Belial, Jay, Marna, Ginger, Blake, and Kopano. I thought they were so entertaining and amazing characters. And when I got annoyed with Anna, these characters kept me invested.

I loved the story itself. I was so intrigued by this world and couldn’t wait to see what would happen with the Neph and Dukes. Who would choose the right path, and who would choose the wrong. Who would survive?

What dstalker-2idn’t I enjoy about these books? Well it’s quite simple, Anna and Kaiden. Now don’t get me wrong, in NO WAY did I hate them. In fact, I was intrigued in there relationship and wanted them to get a happy ending, but boy did they piss me off. The things Anna did just seemed so stalker-ish to me, and really annoyed me. At times, I wanted to put the book down because of it. And Kaiden being so distant, but angry when he believes she’s with someone else. UGH. It’s strange because usually I’m all for these we-can-never-be-together, it’s-too-dangerous, relationships, but this just pissed me off. However, by the third book, it was tolerable, and I found myself enjoying them a lot more.

I figured it would be fun to tell you guys my favorite scene from each book, so here we go.

One of my favorite moments in Sweet Evil, absolutely, hands down 100 percent had to be when she finally meets her father in prison. I thought it was going to be this awkward moment, and he was going to be a complete and total ass to her, but boy was I wrong. I absolutely ADORED this scene, and any scene with her dad in it. He’s so awesome!

My favorite moment in Sweet Peril was the finale when Anna, Kaiden, Blake, Kopano, and Zania had to hide under water when the Dukes arrive at the island. I was so invested in that, and was surprised to see what played out.

My favorite moment in Sweet Reckoning…omg this was is hard. Themma-stone-giggle-gifis is probably my favorite book of the three. I think I have to go with the Thanksgiving scene. When everyone arrived at Patti’s house and they all spent time cooking, eating and playing games like a real family. I had the biggest smile on my face the entire time I was reading that scene! It was amazing.

Quotes- Sweet Reckoning

I just finished reading the third and final book in the Sweet Evil trilogy by Wendy Higgins the other day and since I’m not reading anything new at the moment, I figured I would share a couple of my favorite quotes from this book! So SPOILERS ahead if you haven’t read this trilogy yet! Also I plan on doing a trilogy review soon!

16007855“Halfway through the meal, while we were all laughing and telling stories, I made the mistake of placing my hand on Kaidan’s upper thigh without thinking.

He let out a groan loud enough to silence the room. I slipped my hand back into my own lap, and Kaidan cleared his throat.

“Wow,” he said. “The corn pudding is fantastic.”

I snorted, which started a round of snickers. Patti smiled at Kaidan like he was a precious boy.

“Isn’t it good? Anna found the recipe a few years ago. She’s a great cook.”

“Mm-hm.” Kaidan gave a tight-lipped smile. “That she is.”

“That’s your damned female hormones talking, Jez.” Sonellion grabbed his crotch. “Grow some balls again.” She gave him a venomous look. “I have more clarity about the world in this body than I ever had with a set of balls.”
