Infinite Sea

3. Most surprising (in a good way or bad way) book you read in 2014?


Surprising in a good way, it was just so good. Soo gooood.

4. Book You “Pushed” The Most People To Read (And They Did) In 2014?

I don’t really push people to read. Or there are no people to really push. Either way…

5. Best series you started in 2014? Best Sequel of 2014? Best Series Ender of 2014?

NameOfTheStar madnessunderneath

Odd, that I did read only one series ending all year, Allegiant. Which I wasn’t too fond off. Except the ending, which most people didn’t really like that much. I’m apparently weird like that.

6. Favorite new author you discovered in 2014?

Maureen Johnson! I’m fell so hard for the Shades of London series this past year, I can’t believe I’ve never read anything else of hers.

7. Best book from a genre you don’t typically read/was out of your comfort zone?


I don’t think I ever read an adult science fiction book, and I never intended to. But then The Martian fell into my lap at an airport in London and it was just amazing!

8. Most action-packed/thrilling/unputdownable book of the year?

coldest girl

It’s definitely the most action-packed/thrilling, things just kept happening and happening. You could get out of breath from reading this book, because there just no pause to breathe in between the action.

9. Book You Read In 2014 That You Are Most Likely To Re-Read Next Year?


I just want to read it again and again, because of Stephen, and things…

10. Favorite cover of a book you read in 2014?


Not one of my favourite books this year, but it’s definitely the scariest looking.

11. Most memorable character of 2014?


Stephen Dene. Stephen Dene. Stephen Dene.

12. Most beautifully written book read in 2014?

Jojo Moyes just never disappoints.

13. Most Thought-Provoking/ Life-Changing Book of 2014?


„When an accident occurs at the Grafenrheinfeld nuclear power station, Joanna (14 years old) is left to look after her young brother and must make decisions which will mean life or death for both of them.“

This book terrified me, it still does. Thanks to France, the part of Germany I live in is surrounded by nuclear power stations. What if something happens? The fact that the main character is so young and people just leave her to fend for herself, nobody will take her with them, they are all too stuck in their own minds and fears… it gave me nightmares.

I was also shocked to learn, that students were forced to read this in class when they were only 12-14 years old. I wouldn’t have slept for days.

14. Book you can’t believe you waited UNTIL 2014 to finally read?


…and I still might not have picked it up, if my boyfriend hadn’t blindly pulled it out of the shelf for me.

15. Favorite Passage/Quote From A Book You Read In 2014?

„“We live and breathe words. …. It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt–I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted–and then I realized that truly I just wanted you.”“ 

from „Clockwork Prince“ by Cassandra Clare

17. Book That Shocked You The Most

we were liars

If you weren’t shocked by the end of We Were Liars, you are probably lying.

18. OTP OF THE YEAR (you will go down with this ship!)

Logan and Veronica, always has been, always will be. (Even though this book did not have enough Logan!)

19. Favorite Non-Romantic Relationship Of The Year


20. Favorite Book You Read in 2014 From An Author You’ve Read Previously

ende der welt

Nicolas Barreau is just always great for a lot of fluff, and a lot of Paris. Kind of the european Nicholas Sparks? Only that all his books are set in Paris. 🙂

dangerous girls
