I read 53 books this year (not counting rereads), but which ones were the best and worst? Below I’ll list all the books I rated 5 and 1 or 2 stars. If you click on the covers you will be directed towards the Goodreads page.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower was by far my favourite book this year. Closely followed by The Book Thief. If you haven’t read these yet, go read them now. They’re beautiful and inspirational and so much more. Obviously I recommend the others too!
One and two stars
Oh my God I hated these books so much. De Thuiskomst (The Homecoming) a little less, as I gave it two stars. I didn’t necessarily hate that one, it was just badly written, boring and at least half of it was unnecessary. Publiek Geheim (Public Secret) was also really boring and I didn’t enjoy the writing style at all. The premise was really interesting and I expected a lot more from it. Ik Ook van Jou (I Love You Too) was basically 99% sex. Apparently that was a lot more important than the plot.
All in all 2014 was a great year! Out of the 53 books, only three of them have gotten one or two stars! And 22 5-star books! Wow. I hope 2015 will be just as great, if not greater.
