THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What has been your most favorite book, so far, this year? Why?


For my first Musing Monday I’m doing multiple prompts because according to Mary at Books and Cookies I should be a rebel 😛

I’m currently reading AND I’m really upset by: Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken. Don’t get my wrong it’s a fine book, it’s just that I’ve hit that second book lag so I’ve been trying to finish the damn thing for like 3 weeks now when I usually only need a couple of days for a book that size. It’s extremely frustrating… And of course it’s going to end in some sort of cliffhanger because there’s two more books out in the series (The Darkest Minds series) and I’m going to have to read them (because it really is a good series, honestly), but I can’t finish freaking Never Fade!!!! *sigh*

Up next I think I’ll read, or reread rather, The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine. This will actually be my third time reading it since middle school, but I always enjoy it and it’s been on my mind lately. Also there’s this other booklr-type meme in which I’m going to need to talk about a trickster later this week and I want Vollys fresh in my brain.

And now for this week’s bonus question:
What has been your most favorite book, so far, this year? Why?
I have to say my favorite so far this year has been Queen of Shadows (book four in the Throne of Glass series) by Sarah J. Maas. If you’ve read it, you may be thinking right now of all the flaws in the book, the sudden character change in a specific precious guy, the out-of-the-blue kinda forced-feeling romance, but stoooooop for a second that’s not what I’m loving it for. The reason it’s my favorite book this year is the load of female badassery! I can’t exactly go into details without spoilers, but just know there is awesome lady character development and bomb women kicking ass and not even waiting to take names! Oh man I’m getting crazy excited just thinking about it all! I mean if you start the book and you’re like “what have you done to this male character I liked??” just know that Maas makes up for it with all of the women, trust me.
