This post comes a bit late but nevertheless this is dedicated to the top 5 amazing books I read this winter. These are books that I rated as a 5 star o 4 star doesn’t matter the genre, as you can see there is a bit of everything.
- The Diviners by Libba Bray
This is a historical fiction book set in the 1920s in New York. A serious of mysterious murders have ocurred in the city and the police have contacted Will (Evie’s uncle) to help them bring some light in the strange symbols that surround the bodies.
This was a fantastic read. It was a paranormal thriller that caught me from the beginning. I loved Evie so much. She was fun, bold and sometimes fearless. I didn’t quite understand her need to caught people’s attention but she was a good heroine for sure. I loved how the different pieces from the puzzle and the people are brought together.
I recommend this one for those who liked a good murder mystery with paranormal elements.
2. All her secrets by Kate Avery Ellison
This is a YA sci fi set in a world not to distant, where in a city called Tivo machines have replace most humans in their work. This has lead to higher rates in crime. In the middle of all of it is Victoria, the daughter of the inventor first robot. She had a troubled experience and is trying to cope with it and keep on with her life. I’m not saying anything else for spoilers.
It is a great book that diggs into AI and it’s effects, and raises the question of when is too far.
I recommend this book to those sci lovers that likes dosis of mystery.
3. All in by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
This is the third book in the Naturals series and OMG it was amazing. A group of teenagers that have special habilities (they can detect when someone is lying, they can read people or they are extremely good with numbers) are recruited by the FBI to help them solve cold cases. Due to the circumstances in this book they are helping in an active investigation.
This book was amazing. The plot was espectacular with a lot of unexpected twists and surprises executed in a great way. It provides you with more answers but raises more questions too; and, the characters are more developed. You get to know a little bit more about each one of the naturals.
I recommend this book to any thriller lover that like complex cases and espectacular ways to solve them.
4. Paper Princess by Erin Wyatt
This is a YA romance contemporary novel. Ella Harper has had a tough live. Her mother died when she was 15 years old and, now 17 years old, she is used to taking care of herself, even if that includes to strip in front of strangers. All of this changes when Callum Royal appears and takes her in his house as a favor for his father.
This book is sexy, fun and adorable.
Ella Harper was a great character to follow. She has lived through a lot and has become tough but she is sweet and will do anything for the people she loves.
I recommend this series to romance and contemporary lovers.
5. The darkest minds by Alexandra Bracken
This is YA dystopian novel. Due to a disease most of the children have deceased or have developed some kind of hability. Based on the hability they are divided into different colors and they are persecuted by the State who want to control the kids by keeping them imprisioned.
This is my first dystopian novel and it was full of surprises. I loved the plot though sometimes it was a bit slow, it was worth it in the end.
I recommend this to those who like characters with special habilities, twisted turns and a good plot.
