2014 roundup!

Welp, better late than never- the books I read in 2014!

I was finishing my masters so I didn't end up reading loads of fiction last year and I also spent a lot of time rereading loads of Harry Potter, which I haven't done for years. This time on my kindle. It was so worth it, a warm, comforting trip back home to Hogwarts. I couldn't bring myself to read Deathly Hallows again just yet (also they're like £7.99 for an ebook on Pottermore, which is loads)... but I'll bite the bullet soon and it'll all be over again wahh. 

J.K. Rowling-
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

And then in no particular order I read these books:
Paper Towns- John Green
This book was... fine!
Howl's Moving Castle- Diana Wynne Jones
I liked this a lot, pretty different to the Studio Ghibli film, but just as magical.
Let it Snow- John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
Christmas time read!

Mortal Engines- Philip Reeve
This was great!

Predators Gold- Philip Reeve
Sequel to Mortal Engines, also pretty great.
The Girl With All the Gifts- M.R. Carey
Ooh this was right good.
Only Ever Yours- Louise O'Neill
If you haven't already, read this immediately.
Girl Online- Zoe Sugg
I mean, it was okkkk.
Charmed Life- Diana Wynne Jones
This was good! I should read the rest of the series.
Looking For Alaska- John Green
I liked this better than Paper Towns I think maybe.
Eleanor & Park- Rainbow Rowell
This was nice, and then sad, but nice too.

The Name of the Wind- Patrick Rothfuss
Kvothe! Denna! Auri! I think I pronounce all the names wrong but I am very much into this series. Excellent.

The Wise Man's Fear- Patrick Rothfuss
A great sequel, a little slower moving than the first I felt, but still enthralling and stuff.

The Passage- Justin Cronin
This book was sooooo long. And it's part of a trilogy?? This was a major project to read. Miiiight not bother with the rest of the series.

Tada! That was it. April reads coming soon... Follow me on instagram (@ruthlily) where I'm currently doing the #MayBookChallenge :)
