I think that 2015, was a pretty decent year of reading for me. According to Goodreads, my average rating was 3.8 stars! Dang! I probably should’ve expected it to be high considering some of the great series I read this year – Harry Potter and Unwind, for example. 😀 Although I wasn’t able to complete my reading challenge of 60 books, I was still able to read 46, which is a miracle considering I was barely at 24 by the beginning of November.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Isn’t that what they say? But how close is too close when they may be one and the same?
The Seven Stages War left much of the planet a charred wasteland. The future belongs to the next generation’s chosen few who must rebuild it. But to enter this elite group, candidates must first pass The Testing—their one chance at a college education and a rewarding career.
Cia Vale is honored to be chosen as a Testing candidate; eager to prove her worthiness as a University student and future leader of the United Commonwealth. But on the eve of her departure, her father’s advice hints at a darker side to her upcoming studies–trust no one.
But surely she can trust Tomas, her handsome childhood friend who offers an alliance? Tomas, who seems to care more about her with the passing of every grueling (and deadly) day of the Testing. To survive, Cia must choose: love without truth or life without trust.

State the best gift you’ve received after answering the prompt on your birthday month
… is a time when friends and families come together and celebrate. Name one book you would give as a gift.
Hmm…well, this would definitely depend one whom I’m giving the gift to. However, I would probably give The Book Thief by Markus Zusak to anyone. Haha. I know, I know, I mention in this book in nearly every tag, but it’s my favorite book ever, so what’d you expect? And I truly believe that everyone would love this book, regardless of their age or taste in books.
… begins a new year. Name a resolution you made this year and if you’ve kept it or not!
Well, I’m not really into New Year’s resolutions, but I did set a reading goal at the beginning of this year to read 60 books…I have 12 days to read my last 16 books. Whoops!
… is the month for relationships. Name your favorite book relationship: romantic, platonic, or familial, your choice!
What, uh, excuse me, what!? I’m expected to name just one! This is madness! It’s like asking a mother to choose her favorite child! I can’t name just one, so I’ll list a few: Hans and Liesel from The Book Thief (again), Percy and Annabeth (Percy Jackson Series), Connor and Risa (Unwind Dystology), & Thorne and Cress (Lunar Chronicles). I could go on forever.
