Matthew Quick : This year I read Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock (review) and a liked it a lot, it´s a really sad story and I really want to read more of his books.

Jessi Kirby : Golden (review) is one of my favorites book of 2013 and I hope read more of her books in 2014.
Jennifer Lynn Barnes : I like YA thrillers and police procedural TV shows, so that´s why The Naturals review) was perfect to me, I really enjoy it a lot.

Lauren Oliver : This is another trilogy that I read back to back this year, and I really liked it a lot except for the ending of Requiem (review), but I did loved Delirium (review) and Pandemonium (review).

Suzanne Young : I love dystopian novels and I couldn´t miss this book, The Program (review) is really god I love it!

Maria V. Snyder : I´ve been wanting to read one of her books for a while, so I decided to start with this trilogy. I really loved Touch of Power (review) and Scent of Magic (review).

Lauren Barnholdt : I really don´t remember on which Top Ten Tuesday I saw for the first time Two-Way Street (review), if it was TBR Summer reads or beach reads but something like that and Two-Way Street was a recurrent book on a lot of blogs and it´s also my first Road Trip book. I really enjoyed it a lot. And I also read Right of Way (review) this year.

Joelle Charbonneau : Another dystopian book that I really liked it, and I can´t wait to read the next book. The Testing (review).

  1. Maria V. Snyder is literally one of my favorite authors ever. Her books are all so amazing! I'm re-reading Touch of Power right now because the third book in that series comes out soon. The Study series is even better than the Healer series in my opinion so I definitely recommend those to you too. For Darkness Shows the Stars is an AWESOME book too!
