  15. My point…..and I do have one by Ellen degeneres (2/5)

 

I can say that Rainbow Rowell was a great find this month, she is the most delicious writer ever as far as YAish-Chicklitish-Romance is involved. She writes warm and poignant tales really. Also Ransom Riggs is a horrible writer with an exceptionally creative mind. Honestly, she turned the most creative idea in the worse book to read. I loved the work of Kady Cross, also John Boyne was really good in this novel of his 😀 Ellen was a huge huge disappointment really :/ Kelly Oram was exceptionally cool with her different idea from all those typical YA novels and Bill was great with this different idea.

 

Highly recommend: Rainbow Rowell
