The Details:
Submit one book recommendation published in each year of the Readathon (2007-2017).

2007

Thirteen Reasons Why
13 Reasons Why, by Jay Asher

I watched the series this year and was totally in love with it - soon after, I read the book and, even though the series meant a lot more to me than the book, it's still a great read.

2008

Fire Study (Study, #3)
Fire Study, by Maria V. Snyder

I really loved the first three books of Study, although Fire Study was my least favorite. I read it only this year but I hope, in the near future, to read the continuation of the series - the first book was so amazing I now need to read everything about it.

2009

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)
If I Stay, by Gayle Forman

What's not to love about this book? I read it last year for Dewey's in October, if I remember it correctly. I'm still afraid of reading its continuation and destroy the magic this book made me feel.

2010

Switched (Trylle Trilogy, #1)
Switched, by Amanda Hocking

I read the Trylle trilogy last year and I pretty much devoured it. It was a great reading and there's Loki - enough said.

2011

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, by Michelle Hodkin

I can't put into words how much I love this book and the series. It's just one of the best damn things I have ever read in my life!

2012

Of Poseidon (The Syrena Legacy, #1)
Of Poseidon, by Anna Banks

This book didn't change my life but still was a light and funny read.

2013

Written in Red (The Others, #1)
Written in Red, by Anne Bishop

My beautiful, precious and perfect Anne Bishop. The Others is an amazing series and I can't wait to read the new one being published in Portugal this year.

2014

The Paying Guests
The Paying Guests, by Sarah Waters

What an amazing novel, it truly is. But then again, Sarah Waters has something special about her.

2015

A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #1)
A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J. Maas

This book made Sarah J. Maas one of my top authors. That's how good this is.

2016

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)
Crooked Kingdom, by Leigh Bardugo

Oh man... again, no words to express myself how deeply amazing and utterly perfect this book is.

2017

According to Goodreads, I didn't read one single book that was published in 2017, only "want to read" some books, so I'm leaving here three of them:

Caraval (Caraval, #1)One of Us Is LyingGeekerella
Caraval, by Stephanie Garber
One of Us is Lying, by Karen M. McManus
Geekerella, by Ashley Poston

So these are my recommendations for you! I hope you liked them 😊

Um livro é muito mais do que um volume transportável. Um livro é uma mala que levamos connosco quando vamos viajar, pois nele temos tudo o que precisamos. Um livro é mais do que um bem comercializável, é o orgulho de carregar a alma em palavras do seu autor. Um livro é mais do que um livro, ao fim e ao cabo. É o nosso pai e a nossa mãe quando se precisa, nunca esperando mais de nós mas sempre lá para nos dar uma lição. É mais do que um amigo, pois não nos julga, não nos faz perguntas; ouve o nosso interior e responde às questões que nem nós sabíamos que tínhamos cá dentro. Um livro é mais do que um amante, duro como a realidade: umas vezes sonhamos e deleitamo-nos nas suas folhas, outras deixamos dobradas, riscadas, magoadas, outras deixamos a um canto e nunca mais olhamos. Desperta em nós uma panóplia de sensações: o toque da capa, da folha; o cheiro das páginas; o prazer da beleza da capa, das letras. Um livro é mais do que isto tudo, e ainda mais do que isso. Porque com ele viajamos, sonhamos, vivemos, aprendemos, amamos, sentimos, choramos e rimos, tudo sem sair do sítio. E uma façanha destas, vinda de algo tão pequeno e tão frágil, é quase comovente.
