25 Books to Read - Summer 2015
In the past few months I haven't been reading as much as I used to.
One of my goals for 2015 is to read more. I've joined Goodreads again so I can get new ideas for books and also to share my reading progress with more people.
I will not be reading all the books on the list. They are not all my taste and a lot of them were suggested by some of my readers, but all of them are new books to read in 2015 that are going to be amazing!
1. A Court of Thorns and Roses
It's a story about the nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre who kills a wolf in the woods, and a beast like creature comes seeking for a revenge. Suddenly she's dragged to an amazing magical land full of dangers.
It's a richly imagined fairy tale retelling of Beauty and the Beast and for sure one of the most read books of 2015 so far.
2. Red Queen
I am definitely gonna give it a try as it's one of the most promising stories of the year. I love YA fantasy too.
The poor Reds are commoners, ruled by the Silvers, great warriors with God-like powers.
The 17 year old Mare is a Red girl works in the Silver Palace surrounded by the ones she hates the most. Despite her red blood she discovers she possesses some deadly powers of her own that threatens to destroy the Silvers dominance.
Action, plot twists, betrayal and a cute main character.
3. The Sin Eater’s Daughter
It's a fantasy romance story about Twylla, a girl chosen by Gods to marry a prince. But the favor of Gods has it's price. A deadly poison infuses her skin. Those who anger the queen should die under Twylla's deadly touch. She's the perfect weapon.
This books was suggested to me by one of my readers with the message "If you like Shatter Me you gonna love this one".
4. Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things
In Furiously Happy, Jenny Lawson tells us her story about her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, funny and ridiculous book about depression and anxiety. How crazy is that? I am so excited.
5. Made You Up
It's a story about the high school senior Alex and her war against the schizophrenia. She's trying to figure out the difference between reality and delusion. Ever wondered what's in the head of the people with schizophrenia? Made You Up will show you.

6. Secrets of a Charmed Life
7. At the Water's Edge
A lot of the people on Goodreads call At the Water's Edge, the Scottish Downton Abbey.
Another historical fiction on my list.
75 dystopian books to read and soon I am gonna post another one.
Seveneves by Neal Stephenson is a new dystopian novel published in May 19th this year and will definitely be one of the most noticeable books of the genre this year.

A great debut novel filled with plot twists. A must-read for everyone that loves mystery.
The story begins with Stanton and Jenny who just have learned that they gonna have a baby. It's totally unexpected for them and even if they love each other the timing is very bad as both of them are still in high school.
This the first book of the series and it was published just few months ago. It already gained a lot of popularity which is not surprising since Emma Chase has a huge fan base from her last erotic romance NY Times bestseller series Tangled.
