Books I Read in 2014!

Here is my list of all the books (that I can remember–I know that I am missing something) that I read in 2014 and their “Quick and Dirty” review. As a disclaimer, not all are 160 characters. Here are my reads!:

1. Wonder by RJ Palacio
5 Owls
160 Character Review: Inspiring and mildly heartbreaking. Loved that it was told from multiple perspectives. Fantastic to teach differences and acceptance

2. Percy Jackson Series (The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters, The Titan’s Curse, The Battle of the Labyrinth, and The Last Olympian)
4.5 Owls
160 Character Review: Really action packed and adventurous. Great for the boys. Had to read with phone in hand to Google mythology and at times dug a bit too deep

3. Selection Trilogy (The Selection, The Elite, and The One) by Kiera Cass
5 Owls
160 Character Review: Not sure I can limit myself to so few words. Hunger Games meets the Bachelor. Among my favorite book series of all time. And Maxon? Swoon.

4. The Prince, The Guard, and The Queen (Selection Novellas)
4 Owls
160 Character Review: Seriously, I just need more Maxon. Told from Aspen, Maxon, and Amberly’s POV, it was awesome to get insight into the opposite side of the story

5. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
4.5 Owls
160 Character Review: Heartbreaking, devastating, romantic, SO perfect. So perfect. End of book wasn’t my favorite…wanted more Gus! I had him for an infinity.

6. Slated by Teri Terry
3.5 Owls
177 Character Review: Set in the future where juvees’ memories are wiped clean to ease crime, this book fell a little flat. Flat characters and anticlimactic. Interesting concept.

7. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
4 Owls
160+ Character Review: Perfect blend of historical, fantasy, and science fiction. Weird concept, but I loved the book and the Peculiars. Read up on the images before you read the book. It puts the images into perspective.

8. In the After by Demitria Lunetta
4.5 Owls
160 Character Review: Interesting twist on alien invasions. Loved the concept and how it was split into 3 different parts. Three HUGE twists in the end!!!

9. Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix
3.5 Owls
160 Character Review: Interesting Dystopian concept on food shortages and birth rates. End is a bit weird, but this is great for struggling readers.
