Award Winning Books

Actually, she specified a Pulitzer Prize winner, but it turns out I don’t own any of those! So, I chose to do a Goodreads prize winner instead.


I own both the YA fantasy winner, the YA fiction winner, and two of the YA fantasy nominees. These books are Queen of Shadows (shown in the picture), All the Bright Places (an e-book, so difficult to take a picture of!), The Heir (shown in the picture), and the Ruby Circle.

I haven’t read Queen of Shadows yet, but I plan to soon! The others, though, I can confirm are completely deserving of this prize. All the Bright Places is probably the best book I’ve read all year, it made me sob like a little girl. The Ruby Circle finished the series brilliantly, and The Heir took me straight back to that awesome world (except with a hellish main character).

What book did you choose this week? Do you own any Pulitzer Prize winners, or did you have to bend the rules like me?



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
