These are the books I rated as 5 cookies books this past year. I seem to really dig fantasy books...
Shadow on the Sun by David Macinnis Gill: I really enjoyed this whole series: Black Hole Sun (#1) and Invisible Sun (#2), but this my favorite of the trilogy. I never thought of myself as a big sci-fi fan, this trilogy might have changed me. So much action!
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson: Such a good book, such an interesting premise and so much action. I adored this book and am so excited it's going to be a series. Can't wait for #2!
Fire & Ash by Jonathan Maberry: I have loved most of the books in this series and was so impressed and moved by how the author ended it all. It made me feel glad I stuck with it even after the very sad death in book two and the very dark third book!
The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer: I love discovering an older book that is really good. I had this one on my to read list forever and was very glad that it lived up to the hype. Great dystopian!
Fat Kid Rules the World by KL Going: Another older read that I am so glad I finally read! So emotional and so good, a must read for sure!
All the Truth That's in Me by Julie Barry: So well written and enjoyable and emotional. Very good read!
Far, Far Away by Tom McNeal: I read this one this fall, but didn't end up reviewing it because I barely reviewed anything for the past few months. This one was a very interesting take on a fair tales, so good!
The Runaway King by Jennifer Neilsen: This is the second book in one of the best series--no second book slump here. All around great!
Kiss Me Again by Rachel Vail: Wonderful, innocent romance. This is the second one and so sweet!
