  1. Having read nearly all of these bar two, I can say that theyre pretty good reads, well as with everything some better than others. Fifty shades its the story not the writing, that everyone seems to be addicted too, but then isnt that the point. Hunger games is mindblowing, Gone girl, mocking jay and bared to you are definitely in some of my top books for this year, love to see people promoting reading!

  2. Clearly it’s the Year of the Grey. I haven’t read fiction in a while, but I think it’s time to switch back…. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. What an excellent list. I’ve heard a lot about the Grey books but haven’t read them yet. I need to get on that.

    Thanks for liking my blog post; follow me if you like what you see. Cheers!

  4. I’ve read through most of the 50 shades books but I’m not a huge fan of it as the other people are. I loved the Hunger Games trilogy. Read it all in a week! I’ll keep the other books in mind though. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

      • I attempted to read the 3rd book in the Grey series but couldn’t make it all the way through. No regrets! I hope you enjoy The Hunger Games. I want to re-read it again!

  5. Interesting what America is reading. 8 out of 10 of the slots are filled with upscale porn or teen lit. Reminds me of Farenheit 451 where the only things left were pornography or comics.
