Top books of 2014!!

                          Top 10 books of 2014

   2014 has been one of the most amazing years for all the YA (Young Adult ) readers. So many amazing books around! It makes it awfully hard to choose!!! So I'm going to give you a short summary about the top 5 and just title and the summary for the top 6 to 10! If you have any book recomendation please comment them below!!!!


So, the top 10 books that I read in 2014 were:

1. City of glass by Cassandra Clare! Even though it isn't the first or last book of the series Mortal Instruments, it's the one that stood out to me the most. I still love the rest of the books, specially City of Lost Soulds and City of Heavenly Fire, but this book just took a piece of my heart. So if you like vampires, angels, dimons warewolves and that kind of stuff, this is the perfect series for you. There is also a movie for the first book, but unfortunatelly not for the rest because of a lot of reasons, but they are going to make it into a TV show, which is very exciting. So, this book was just amazing and I recommend it for any YA reader, I personally thought I wasn't going to like it, but I ended up falling inlove with these books.

2 The Maze Runner by James Dashner! This is an amazing book, it's the first book of the Maze Runner trilogy and it is beautifully written from the main characters point of view, Thomas. It's about a group of boys who find themselves stuck in the middle of a maze and their memories have been errased. One day a boy appears  in the place where they are living and somehow becomes their kind of leader; the one who has to find a way out for all of them. As I said, it is a really great book and if you like science fiction, this is your book. There is also a really good movie if you are interested in that. The movie came out in 2014 too, so it shouldn't be hard to find it on a website or at the cinema.

3 Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta. It is just too good to put into words, this book was a best seller. It was written by an Australian woman. It's about an Australian girl with Italian backround. She lives with her mum and doesn't know who her dad is, unfortunately because all the Italian old ladies talk behind other peoples back, she has to hide the fact that she is the daughter of a single mother. Then at school she meets a boy and of course they fall in love, but they're relation ship doesn't really work becuase of they're different families and ways of living, so she has to solve two problems, who is her dad is and why can't she have a normal relationship with the boy she loves. I recomend this book to any teenager girl, this book will make you laugh, cry, smile, sob... It is really trully an amazing book.

4 The Giver! This book will take you to the future, show you what the would could look like if it carries on with wars and fights. It shows how anyone can be important and make a difference..... so the story line goes a bit like this: the world has tuned black and white, everyone is exactly the same as the preson next to them appart from their name, children study, teensgers study and adults work, they don't choose they're job though, it gets chosen for them. During one of the choosing ceremonies, one boy doesn't get selected in any job, instead he becomes a receiver which means he gets the memories from the past back... So, if you like science fiction, books about the future and a touch of romance, this is the perfect book for you.

5 Love, Rosie! I wouldn't be surprised if you have already heard about this book, or the movie which came out recently in the last months of 2014. I can't tell you if the movie is good or bad because I haven't watched it yet, but i have a felling its amazing, I mean... Lily Collins and Sam Claflin!, that has to be good. But anyway, the book is just great, it is all written in letters and emails that everyone sends Rosie during her life. The story is about a girl and her friend Alex who have been best friends since they were 3 years old. When school finishes Alex moves to America. Rosie has to go to the graduation dinner with another boy because Alex had already left, and she ends up pregnant without anyone really knowing. Her and her daughter try to live a normal life, but its just too hard for her and ends up needing her best frined, Alex again. This a very romantic novel, but still, it's very interesting seeing how someones life can turn into such a mess and how hard it can be to be claned it all up.

6 The Divergent series by Veriona Roth

On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her
