Normally, we compile a list of our favourite books of the year but last year we saw a lot of people doing ‘Best AND Worst’ videos, so we thought we would separate the two. Maddie and I also usually do a ‘Series We Won’t Complete’ and ‘Books We Regret Reading’ video, but this year we just combined them all into one!

The Listby Siobhan Vivian Genre: Contemporary Published by: Harlequin Pages: 336 Format: ARC e-book Rating: ★★
We were really looking forward to reading this book because it deals with eight different perspectives, much like our beloved Clearwater Crossing. Also Siobhan Vivian has co-authored the Burn For Burn trilogy with Jenny Han and I liked Siobhan’s character a lot more than Jenny Han’s. Basically, the book had a lot of promise.
Unfortunately, dealing with multiple perspectives can have it’s down side, mostly that one character can become more prominent, or all characters could be underdeveloped. While the characters themselves weren’t under developed – they all had their own issues! – their storylines came to an abrupt end. A lot of the conflicts were left unresolved, and we found ourselves waiting the whole time for that ‘something bug’ to happen.
