The Book List

January

Temeraire- Life with dragons is more rewarding.

Throne of Jade- Sea-faring dragon is a bit stroppy.

Pride and Prejudice- ‘What a worthy classic’ cried Summer.

The Hunger Games- Gripping and fun story, not Twilight.

Catching Fire- Gradual build-up with infuriatingly suspenseful end.

February

Mockingjay- Bittersweet, but it was always so.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower- A beautiful snippet of complex life.

March

Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales- Too much cannibalism for my liking.

April

River God- A majestic piece of historical literature.

The Calling- Fantastic follow up, Maya is still great.

Game of Thrones- Beautifully in-depth world and character arcs.

May

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies- very much the same, comically improved.

Clash of Kings- Perfect follow up, but bad grammar

June

A Storm of Swords 1: Steel and Snow- Wow, it just keeps getting better.

Black Powder War- Phew, that was a painful read.

July

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter- Cliché vampires, cliché story, cliché author.

Dracula- Atmospheric novel with best ever vampire.

Thirteen- A fantastic book, a fantastic goodbye.

August

The Great Gastby- Elegant and fancy language about nothing.

Elsewhere- Beautifully told but simply written story.

The Gods of Asphalt- Engrossing story with a slow start.

A Storm of Swords 2: Blood and Gold- Jam packed with twists and turns

September

A Feast For Crows- Not as good as the others.
