Top 12 Book 1’s of 2014 (So Far) (According to Me)

Thanks to Harry Potter, everything is a series.  Here is my ranking with one sentence reviews.  If the title is clickable, it will lead you to a full review.

#12.  The Jewel– Simple, predictable plot with a whole lot of instalove.

#4. Half Bad-Started off well and had interesting characters but it was too preachy and the ending was anti-climactic.

#3. An Ember in the Ashes-Unpredictable, great romances and villains, full of action but the author says it’s a stand alone; however, it can’t be because there’s no ending.

#2. Winner’s Curse-Beautifully written with a lovely forbidden romance.

#1. Kiss of Deception-Slow moving book but it has many layers, it has well-rounded characters, and has great world-building. It’s a novel that requires you to think and make connections. Sorry but this book was too good for one sentence.
