A look back at the books that came out in 2015

books

While the end of the year might be a good thing for some people, it might be rough for the book readers of the world. There was too long of a list of books that came out this year and not enough days in the year to keep up. When looking back at the books that came out, it’s hard to pick just one favorite above the others as it’s like trying to pick your favorite kid.

So, don’t worry. I did it for you.

There might not be any mysteries that came out this year, mainly because some of the mysteries have been done so many times before it gets repetitive. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins probably had the highest sales amongst the older generation. They were able to get consumed with that world and the mystery. It was very much like Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was a few years ago. We don’t have any of those books on this list.

The list below probably relates to the people probably around the age of thirty and younger. There is a mix of books in there that some may not like and some may not agree with. Opinions are important, especially with book reading. The point is that we all are able to read the books and let them into our lives. The books that mean the most to us are the ones that we can relate to in some way, and that’s why I chose these books for the top books of 2015. Below is the list of the top ten books that came out this year.

evil never dies

10. Evil Never Dies by T.R. Ragan

Out: 8/4

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24840347-evil-never-dies?from_search=true&search_version=service

Review: https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/08/18/review-evil-never-dies-by-tr-ragan-suspenseful-finale-as-lizzy-comes-to-terms-with-her-loss/

In the latest book of the series, Lizzie struggles with the loss of Jared and trying to be the role model. She submits to the darkness in her and finds that it might not be what she thought it would be, but it might be too late for her to turn back. The story touches on the struggle that we all must deal at some point in our lives when we lose loved ones and whether or not we would submit to the darkness within, or be able to rise above it.

fall with me

9. Fall With Me by Jennifer Armentrout

Out: 3/31

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20980781-fall-with-me?from_search=true&search_version=service

Review: https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/04/04/book-review-fall-with-me-by-jennifer-armentrout-story-of-not-letting-past-ghosts-control-the-future/

I admit, initially when reading this book, I didn’t think it was one of her better books, but after reading it a second time I wonder why I thought that way. I have loved every other book that Armentrout has written and I think that I had such high expectations for this book. When reading in between the lines, I see how beautiful the relationship between Reese and Roxy is and how pride is an ugly thing that can keep love from happening.

papper hearts cover

8. Paper Hearts by Claire Contreras

Out: 9/9

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25284952-paper-hearts?from_search=true&search_version=service

Review: https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/09/11/release-day-blitz-paper-hearts-by-claire-contreras/

Like the first book of the series, this story has a beautiful couple that you just want to hate because they are so cute. They were torn apart because of circumstances and once again pride shows its ugly head and keeps them apart. It’s not until they get older and wiser that they see that love is more important than one’s pride. I love every character that Contreras creates because they are real and can relate to anyone that reads the books. Hard feat to do for an author.

scorched

7. Scorched by Jennifer Armentrout

Out: 6/16

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18045624-scorched?from_search=true&search_version=service

Review: https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/09/20/review-scorched-by-jennifer-armentrout-a-heartbreaking-story-of-overcoming-one-of-lifes-hardest-things/

It’s these kinds of books that make me love Armentrout’s writing. While she may create characters that are similar and have their own bubbly lingo, she will throw in a deeply flawed character that we get to transform into that beautiful swan. This story touches on something that hit close to me and I couldn’t help but understand the story that much more. Alcohol is a problem for millions of people out there (whether it effects them directly or indirectly) and it hurts deeper sometimes than physical pain.

shadowhunter-academy-01

6. The Shadowhunter Academy series by Cassandra Clare

Out: around the 20th of every month

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&query=shadowhunter+academy

In the surprise series released by Cassandra Clare, we get to watch one of our favorite characters, Simon, as he tries to insert his life into the Shadowhunters. While he has some of his memories back, he doesn’t have the core ones. Like the ones that connect him with Clary and Isabelle. At times, he can be annoying with it (especially the first few novellas) but he finally comes to his senses towards the end. The best part of the series, though, is that we get to see the background stories for all these characters that we heard about and how they effected the Shadowhunter world. Especially for Valentine and how he came to power. A must read for anyone who is a fan of the series.

nowhere but here

5. Nowhere but Here by Katie McGarry

Out: 5/26

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23492282-nowhere-but-here?from_search=true&search_version=service

Review: https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/06/09/book-review-nowhere-but-here-by-katie-mcgarry-story-of-living-life-to-the-fullest-and-to-face-your-fears/

She is not like many of the other authors on this list where she had multiple books that come out each year, but when she does release a book, it’s one that you get right away and then obsess over it. This book is the first book of the series and it’s a spin-off of sorts from her last series. She talks about the importance of living your own life and not letting your past dictate it for you. Like many of her other books, she is able to bring characters to life that we can relate to in some way and hope that things turn out well for them in the end.

confess

4. Confess by Colleen Hoover

Out: 3/10

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22609310-confess?from_search=true&search_version=service

Review: https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/04/06/review-confess-by-colleen-hoover-story-of-loss-love-and-how-amazing-fate-can-be/

When reading this book, I was not expecting to like it as much I did. I read the blurb and I was like ‘eh this sounds interesting enough to read’. But after reading it, I was obsessed. Especially after finding out that the confessions in the book are all real. Some of them are dark and sinister while others are funny and light. It’s those dark ones that make you see how ugly the world can be and how it’s something that should be recognized. I liked how Hoover was able to work that kind of theme into her story, without it being the center point for it.

king tyrant-cover

3. King/Tyrant by T.M. Frazier

Out: 6/15 and 8/16

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27918024-king-tyrant?from_search=true&search_version=service

Review: Kinghttps://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/06/16/release-day-blitz-for-king-by-tm-frazier/

Tyrant – https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/08/18/tyrant-by-tm-frazier-release-day-blitz-and-review/

If you want to a read series and literally curse out the author from start to finish, then start reading this series. It dominates your life and doesn’t let go. If you join the Facebook group you will see that you are not the only one who suffers from King-itis. Frazier creates characters that we love but there are so many twists and turns that you never know what to expect. It’s the perfect book to read when you want to get worked up and get all crazed over.

say my name under my skin on my knees

2. Stark International series by J. Kenner

Out: 4/7, 6/23, 9/1

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/series/118761-stark-international-trilogy

Review: Say my Name https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/04/07/book-review-say-my-name-by-j-kenner-story-of-a-broken-woman-learning-to-trust-again/

On my Knees https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/06/23/book-review-on-my-knees-by-j-kenner-a-little-repetitive-but-sets-up-what-should-be-an-explosive-finale/

Under my Skinhttps://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/09/01/review-under-my-skin-by-j-kenner-jackson-and-sylvia-deal-with-the-ghosts-of-their-pasts/

It’s not very often where the sequel is better than the originally, but in this case, it is. Damien’s series is good in its own way, but I found that I liked the relationship between Sylvia and Jackson a whole lot more. They had more layers and I felt that we got to see more of a transformation for the characters throughout the series. Kenner had enough twists and turns that kept you coming back for more and demanding to know what happens next.

lawless

1. Lawless by T.M. Frazier

Out: 12/8

Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25756072-lawless?from_search=true&search_version=service

Review: https://nerdysoul.wordpress.com/2015/12/10/lawless-by-t-m-frazier-book-tour/

There are really no words to describe how amazing this book is. While the King part of the series has its own dark secrets, this story never had gotten me so angry before. I never actively spent time in a discussion group talking about a book because it was THAT good. It made me want to hunt down Frazier and demand answers. It’s hard to make a book that creates such a reaction from the fans and the torture is waiting for the next installment to come out. COME ON FE-BEAR-Y!

Review – ‘Chasing Impossible’ by Katie McGarry – Abby and Logan steal your heart in this book

chasing impossible

Format: ebook

Format read: e-book
Series: book 5 of The Pushing the Limits series
Rating: 15+ for language, sensual content, dark themes
Genre: Young Adult
Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25263399-chasing-impossible?from_search=true&search_version=service

In this book that was only available to those who had pre-ordered the first book of her new series, Nowhere But Here. In this book, we read Abby and Logan’s story as they both struggle with the world they live in so use each other  to escape it. Problem is, their reality is still there and comes destroying their dream world.

If you didn’t get the chance to get this book, you are going to regret it. Logan and Abby’s story is one of the best of the series, and that is saying a lot for this series. Logan has got that whole bad boy but good kid at heart thing going on. He has a disability that he chooses to hide from the people in his life because he doesn’t want to be thought of as anything less then what he is.

Abby is stuck into her life because it’s the only way that she can get the money that she needs. She likes Logan and the way that he helps her escape the world she has to live, but the dangers that comes with it keep her from acting on her feelings for him. She is a strong-willed individual that needs someone like Logan to help her see that she needs to enjoy being young before it’s too late.

The relationship between Logan and Abby is a close tie to Echo and Noah’s relationship. They both have that ying/yang thing going where each couple completes the other one in the relationship. What I like the most about Logan and Abby’s relationship is the back and forth that they have. They have no problem using sarcasm (which I am a big fan of) to break the silences that may happen and they know that if it came down to it, they would always have each other’s backs.

It is no surprise that Katie McGarry filled the book with messages that we can use in our own life. McGarry’s word reach deep inside the soul and can change someone’s outlook on what is going on in their life. The worlds and characters that she creates are so real that you feel like you are a part of their world. You want to keep going back to this world over and over again as we find out what happens to these characters. We want, no need, to make sure that are all going to be ok.

As of right now, it’s not available for sale. This is good for those fans that had pre-ordered, but not so much for those who didn’t. Time can only tell if that is going to be the case.

Cover and excerpt release for ‘Walk the Edge’ by Katie McGarry

walk the edge

Yesterday, author Katie McGarry announced that the cover for the second book of the Thunder Road series, Walk the Edge, was going to be released today. And she didn’t waste time releasing it.

Early this morning, USA Today released and article that not only released the official cover but also the first excerpt from the book. In the excerpt, we get to a first look inside of Razor’s mind as he starts his first day of his last year in high school. We are reminded of the stigma he has for his real name, so it’s highly likely we will find out the truth behind it. You can read the excerpt below.

There are certain common-sense rules all girls in town comprehend. It’s not knowledge that has to be taught. In fact, sitting here on the top step to the entrance of my high school and watching this potential disaster unfold, I search my memory for the first person who mentioned I should stay clear of the Reign of Terror Motorcycle Club.

Because when it pertains to the threat that is the Reign of Terror MC, it’s not learned, it’s known. Like how an infant understands how to suck in a breath at the moment of birth or how a newborn foal wobbles to his legs. It’s instinctual. It’s ingrained. It’s fact.

“Do you think his motorcycle will work this time?” Addison asks.

“Hope so,” I breathe out, too terrified to speak at a normal level out of fear that we’ll draw the scrutiny of the men wearing black leather vests circling the broken-down bike. Reign of Terror arches over the top of the black vest; in the middle is a half skull with far too much fire in and around it. It’s ominous and I shiver.

It’s edging toward nine in the evening, but the August sun hasn’t completely set. Darkness, though, has claimed most of the sky. Temperatures during the afternoon hit over a hundred and I swear the concrete stairs and pillar absorbed every ounce of today’s sunshine and are now transferring the heat onto my body.

Sweat rolls down my back and I shift to peel my thighs off the step. Why I thought it was a fantastic idea to wear a jean skirt, I have no idea.

I take that back. I do have an idea. Tonight is the first time my entire grade has been together in one room since the end of last year. My goal for the year may seem simple to some, but to me, it sometimes feels impossible. I’d like to be seen, to be known as something more than “freakishly smart Breanna Miller” at least once before I leave this town. I’d like to somehow find the courage to be on the outside who I am on the inside.

An annoying sixth sense informs me that I’m about to make a huge impression—on the evening news. Two friends on the verge of starting their senior year vanish without a trace. Because that’s how motorcycle clubs would handle this—they’ll kidnap us and then hide our bodies after they’re finished with whatever ritual act they’ll use us to perform.

One of the gang members stands from his crouched position at the motorcycle and the guy we attend school with inserts a key and holds on to the handlebar of the bike. As he twists it, I pray the motor will purr to life.

My heart leaps, then plummets past my toes and into the ground when the motorcycle cuts off with a sound similar to a gunshot. Addison’s head falls forward, and I bite my lip to prevent the internal screaming from becoming external chaos.

Addison pulls her phone out of her purse and taps the screen. “I’m texting Reagan. If we go missing, I’m telling her to point the finger at Thomas Turner and his band of Merry Men.”

Thomas Turner. He’s the guy that swore loudly the moment his motorcycle’s engine died again. Thomas is the name called on the first day of school by our teachers, but it’s not the name he responds to. He goes by his “road name,” Razor.

He glances over his shoulder straight at me and my mouth dries out. Holy hell, it’s like he’s aware I’m thinking of him.

“Oh my God,” Addison reprimands. “Don’t make eye contact. Do you want them to come over?”

I immediately focus on my sandals. As much as every girl knows to keep a safe distance from Thomas and his crew, we’ve all snuck a glimpse. Thomas makes it easy to cave to temptation with his golden blond hair and muscles from head to toe, and he owns this sexy brooding expression a few girls have written about in poems.

My cheeks burn and there’s this heaviness as if Thomas is still looking. Through lowered lashes, I peek at him and my heart trips when our eyes meet. His eyes are blue. An icy blue. His stare causes me to be simultaneously curious and terrified. And I obviously have a death wish because I can’t tear my gaze away…

Walk the Edge is the second book of the series. The first book, Nowhere but Here, was released this past May and left the fans wanting more. We got to fall in love with the two couples in the book while McGarry introduced us to a whole new world of motorcycle gangs that we will get to explore. This is the first series that she has written since the Pushing the Limits series which found it’s way on the NY Times Best-Seller’s list multiple times.

There is still no official synopsis for the book, but we do know that we follow Razor’s journey as he tries to decide what his life is going to be like in the motorcylce gang. Walk the Edge is set to come out March 30th, 2016 and is not yet available for pre-order. You can keep up to date on news from Katie McGarry by going to her website or following her on Goodreads.

Book review – “Nowhere but Here” by Katie McGarry – Story of living life to the fullest and to face your fears

nowhere but here

Format: ebook, paperback, hard cover
Series: book 1 of Thunder Road series
Rating: 15+ themes, language, violent scenes
Genre: Young Adult
Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23492282-nowhere-but-here

In the first book of a new series by Katie McGarry, we meet Emily, a sheltered 17 year old girl who gets thrown into the world of motorcycle clubs when she enters the world that her mother ran away from and her father still exists in. She meets prospect, Oz, who has only known the world that her father lives in but when he meets Emily, he questions everything he knows.

Emily lives a very sheltered life and with the exception of being forced into a relationship with Eli, she thinks her life is perfect. She has a great dad in Jeff and a mom who loves her. When she is forced to spend time with Eli and his family, she begins to see that her perfect world is not so perfect at all. She learns the secrets and lies of her parents’ lives and learns that the world is a whole lot bigger than the Florida life she knows.

Oz is one of those guys that thinks that he’s bad-ass but he’s really a big softy at heart. When he first meets Emily, he wants to hate her because of her mother, but as he gets to know her, he can’t help but fall in love with her. She sees the world beyond Snowflake even though she’s been sheltered for most of her life and it forces him to see that he can live a happy life without the Reign of Terror.

Nowhere But Here - Teaser 1

The climax of the story is unexpected and is thrilling all the same. It fits with the theme of the book and the nature as well. You may be able to figure out part of the climax, but the whole entire thing is just way too complex to be able to figure out. And I love that.

While the story is meant to focus on Oz and Emily, I couldn’t help but wish that we got more of a story for Meg and Eli. When you find out the truth of their story, it’s so tragic and heartbreaking that you just want to read all about how it happened. Even though Meg loves Jeff and her life with him, you can tell that she will always love Eli. That love story is tragic and one that would stay with you forever.

I did like the story for Oz and Emily but I don’t think they got the full story that they deserved. With it being the first book a series, McGarry spent a lot of time developing the scene and the characters and it took away from the focus of Oz’s and Emily’s story. One second they hate each, the next they love each other. McGarry does mention that time passes, but I would have liked to have read some of those significant moments that made their relationship. Maybe we will get to see more of them in the rest of the series which will make me ok with it, but for now, I wish I had more of development for them.

Rating: B

“Nowhere but Here” by Katie McGarry Release Day Blitz

nowhere but here

NY Times Best-Selling author, Katie McGarry launches a new book in a new series that looks like it will follow around a biker gang. The first book follows a member, Oz, as he falls for the girl who comes from a different world, Emily.


Official Blurb

An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible 

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she’s curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn’t mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both. 

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They’re the good guys. They protect people. They’re…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club’s most respected member—is in town, he’s gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it’s his shot at his dream. What he doesn’t count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down. 

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.

 Excerpt

OZ

WIND BLOWS IN FROM THE NORTH AND A FEW pieces of Emily’s dark hair sweep across her face. One min­ute Emily’s a bright flame, then a gust snuffs out her light. Her body sways like a top at the tail end of a spin and I lunge forward.

Emily’s knees give out and her eyes roll back into her head. I catch her inches before she crashes onto the porch. She’s light as I swing her into my arms and her head circles onto my shoulder, reminding me of one of those rag dolls Violet used to play with when we were kids.

“Emily!” Eli’s on top of me, attempting to yank her out of my arms. “Open your eyes.”

Her eyelids flutter, but remain closed as her hand limply clutches my shirt. Eli rams his arms underneath mine and he makes Emily a rope in a tug-of-war. I should let her go. I should want to let her go, but then Emily goes and screws it up for me. “Oz.” 

It was a damn whisper, but I heard my name on her lips and so did Eli. His eyes flash to mine and Cyrus’s words repeat in my mind. That girl trusts you. And screw us both for that.

“She’s exhausted,” I say. “Hasn’t slept at all tonight.”

Eli’s expression hardens as he glares at me. I’ve seen Eli throw a coma-inducing punch for less defiance and I readjust the sleeping girl in my arms. A reminder if he decks me now, he’ll be putting his daughter at risk.

Temporarily surrendering, Eli cups Emily’s face in his hands and angles her toward him. “Emily, please open your eyes.”

She does. It’s barely a crack and they’re completely glazed.

“Everything’s going to be okay,” Eli affirms.

“I want my mom and dad,” she mumbles.

“You’ll see them tomorrow.” Eli pushes a strand of hair from her cheek. “You’re safe here. I promise.”

She rejects Eli by curling into me. Her head fits perfectly in the crook of my neck and I loathe the wave of protective­ness that rumbles through my body. Emily’s fingers tighten their grip near my shoulders and the impulse is to shield her from the guys gawking at this intimate scene. Yeah, this is club business, but Emily never asked for any of this.
