12. Best book I've read so far this year. The way Fallada just uses words and slowly gets all these characters together is amazing. The story slowly proceeds to rip your heart out but it does so beautifully. If I could quote the entire chapter 57 on here I totally would. Much much love for this one

11. I genuinely love Eddie Dean and Odetta/Detta/Susannah. Everytime I read the Dark Tower books I cannot wait to reach the point where they are introduced. My beloved ka-tet is almost complete!

10. Decided to reread this series. I love Stephen King and I adore the Dark Tower series. Never actually finished the last volume cause OH GOD EMOTIONS and I was genuinely afraid to find out what was going to happen to my beloved characters, but this time I intend to read it all, including that recently released new addition to the Dark Tower books. Cannot wait.

9. You know how you can read some youth novels as an adult, and some not? This one is the latter I'm afraid. Despite throwing in lots of interesting historical figures (John Dee! Flamel!) it just wasn't good enough to hold my attention and make me want to read more of this series. Maybe when I was 12

8. A well written book about the behind the scene music world with some really interesting characters and a rather strange way of telling a story

7. This is definitely the most interesting one of the trilogy. Peeta made my heart hurt and this one was so very unsubtle with its social commentary! Not sure what to think of it yet in the grand scheme of things

6. The book where you start loving characters you didn't expect to love and that somehow managed to be just as surprising as the first despite it sounding a bit the same (but it's not!)

First Look: 'Catching Fire' By Suzanne Collins

5. So I wanted to know what the hype was all about and then proceeded to get sucked in big time myself: reading all 3 books in 3 days without doing much else. Really great pageturners with unexpected twists and a rather original view on things (oh how I wish they had expanded on the "Katniss having to play it up for the cameras" storyline in the movies)

4. A non-canon book about Sherlock Holmes set during the First World War? Gimme! Really enjoyed reading it. Holmes & Watson were very in-character, lots of historical facts (and notes!) and just a genuine great plot

3. Finally started reading these and being pleasantly surprised. I can see why people are still reading Sherlock Holmes and still falling in love with the characters
