3. The Demon’s Covenant by Sarah Rees Brennan
The language, writing style, characters, viewpoint… I love it all. Sarah Rees Brennan is a fabulous story teller. This is my favorite of hers so far 🙂
4. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
I just recently gushed about how much I love, love, loved this book. I won’t repeat everything but I will say that listening to City of Bones after reading this was really fun 🙂
5. The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell
Another book I gushed about. You have to read this one come March! Beautiful style and language. I really felt invested in the book and what happened to the main character.
6. Heist Society by Ally Carter
So fun! I love Ally Carter’s Gallagher Girls series as well but there is something about Kat and Hale… oh how I love Hale!
7. Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I read this because I was going to the Smart Chicks Tour and wanted to read books by all the authors there. I really liked the werewolf take. I loved that the main character was different. I can’t wait for book two!
8. Shiver/Linger by Maggie Steifvater
I read both of these in 2010. Another take on werewolves/shape shifters that I love. The audiobook for Linger is fabulous.
9. The Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore
I ordered this for my LMC and randomly picked it up. SO GOOD! I couldn’t put it down. The writing and story are engaging and I loved the setting.
10. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White/Firelight by Sophie Jordan/Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Okay, I know that these don’t really have much in common but I read them all at about the same time so they’re going together. Paranormalcy was so fun. Love the main character and her voice. I loved Firelight‘s take on dragons (now Draki) and Jacinda kicks butt! Nightshade has a whole mythos and history built in to it that was AMAZING. I’m totally team Ren! 🙂 Calla rocks too 🙂
Gone by Lisa McMann
Loved all three of these books. Great premisses.
After Ever After by Jordan Sonnenblick
Oh my stars… WATERWORKS! I sobbed but I loved every minute. I am always amazed at how Sonnenblick works humor and heartbreak together. Read Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie first.
A Posse of Princesses by Sherwood Smith
Perhaps one of the worst covers ever but I loved the story. Sherwood Smith writes great fantasy.
