Top five books of 2015 Claire Huston

I reviewed 70 books on this blog this year. Only five of them got 5 stars. I don’t feel able to say any of them is “better” than the others. However, I will rank them according to how wide an audience I think would enjoy them (my total guess here… other opinions are available!).

Review | Vicious by V. E. Schwab

A skillfully-handled, complex plot and a cast of equally complex characters make Vicious another 5-star book from V. E. Schwab.

Vicious by V.E. Schwab book coverWhat it’s about:

I came to this book without knowing anything about the characters or plot and I believe that improved my experience. In my opinion, the official blurb gives far too much away and would make some of the earlier chapters less interesting. However, if you do want some background, you can read the blurb at the bottom of this review. Otherwise, just trust me: this is great.
