This year was a good year for books for me. I discovered some new favorites and some new series that I'm looking forward to continuing in 2015. Lots of these are hidden gems, too, which are always nice to find. :)

So, let's get into what books I absolutely loved this year!

5. A Thousand Pieces of You - Claudia Gray

This book got me interested into the world of inter-dimensional travel. I love time travel anyway - see any post I've ever done on Doctor Who ever - but the inclusion of parallel dimensions in this novel was excellent. Also, there's a lot of time spent in Romanov-era Russia AND a futuristic London, which is very cool. I can't wait to see where Marguerite - the fabulous homeschooled artsy protagonist - goes next!

4. Snow Like Ashes - Sara Raasch

This book made me so happy, and I can't believe I almost put it down over a particularly frustrating character. It's a fabulous high fantasy YA novel with one of the best female teen protagonists I've ever seen on a page. The romance is epic, the battles are epic, and the magic is epic. Basically, the entire thing is epic, and I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel when it comes out.

3. Jackaby - William Ritter

Oh, this book. This book claimed to be "Doctor Who meets Sherlock", and it absolutely didn't disappoint. The fact that it's going to get a sequel is icing on the cake.

2. Ready Player One - Ernest Cline

I haven't read anything quite like Ready Player One since I finished it last summer. It's funny, witty, and full of amazing adventure, all set in the landscape of an amazing video game.

(Also, I found out that Ernest Cline is RELEASING A NEW BOOK THIS JULY! And the plot is kinda similar to Ready Player One! YAY!)

1. Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman

This list would absolutely not be complete without a Neil Gaiman story. I read three this year, and Neverwhere was my favorite. This tale was a joy to read from start to finish. :)

Well, that was my Top 5 list! I can't wait to read and review more books in the new year. :) What books did you love this year? What are you looking forward to reading in 2015?
