1. Every Mountain Made Low by Alex White
Even whilst I was reading Every Mountain Made Low I had no clue what was going on so heaven help me try and recall it now. This novel felt far to chaotic, as though there were multiple plots condensed into one book.
I have a full review for Every Mountain Made Low here.
Oh I wanted to love this. I really did. But similarly to Every Mountain Made Low, The Rest of Us Just Live Here seemed to have two plots running parallel. I know that's part of the premise that you get the 'chosen ones' story as well as the collateral characters but I would've loved this novel so much more if there wasn't any of that odd paranormal-ness (is this a word? It is now).

After reading Caraval (review here) I wanted all the circus fiction, so I read Freeks. I loved it. I read it in about three sittings whilst on holiday...but now I can't remember anything about the book. It wasn't bad at all. As I mentioned I loved it. But for some reason the entire premise seems to have leaked out of my brain...
