Dark Triumph - Robin LaFevers Probably closer to a 3 1/2. I just didn't connect with Sybella the way I did with Ismae. The writing was superb. The road trip essence of the novel annoyed me at times. Horses, ambush, win, horses, ambush, win. I would have preferred more intrigue at court. I can't wait to see what Annith has in store for us.
Beautiful Stranger - Christina Lauren perfect in every way. Christina Lauren rose to the occasion (pun intended) and created the perfect smutty book boyfriend.
Faerie After (Bones of Faerie Book, #3) - Janni Lee Simner A beautiful and thoughtful end to one of my favorite series. I was saddened and hopeful with the resolution of the trilogy. Simner is an amazing writer.
Icons - Margaret Stohl The writing was amazing. The world felt unimaginative and disjointed. The book doesn't have a definitive ending like each book in a series should. I never connected to any of the characters or their plight. If you like your dystopia with zero descriptions and romance focused then I do believe this one is for you!
Beautiful Bastard - Christina Lauren Fun. Super fun!
The Last Dragonslayer - Jasper Fforde Lovely book! This is what children's lit should be. Lush, imaginative ,and incredibly funny!
Real - Katy Evans Read this in one day. Very hot erotic NA with relationship dramz if you like that sort of thing. Obviously I do.
School Spirits - Rachel Hawkins As always Hawkins delivers a great plot with lots of laughs along the way. I love these books and Izzy is a great MC!
Ironskin - Tina Connolly very Jane Eyre which is a book I love. I didn't feel I got to know the love ingest or get a good feel of why the couple fell in love. the ideally and world were absolutely stunning. a great read.
The 5th Wave - Rick Yancey Yancey paints a world that is devastated He somehow leaves the character and the reader hope. There were many chapters where I had to stop reading because I was crying, or I needed to think more about what I had just read. This book was entertaining, heart-stopping, and fast-paced, but inside these pages it also held a love letter to the human condition. This is THE YA book of 2013, and I am so glad it lives up to the hype.
Olivia Twisted - Vivi Barnes I'm her agent so it is obvious that I think it is cool. But holy hot boy, holy hacker mania, and JESU BATMAN THE INTRIGUE!
Siege and Storm - Leigh Bardugo I'll come back when I regain coherent thought. Love.
Paper Valentine - Brenna Yovanoff I love Yovanoff's characters, and her plot, but mostly I love her settings. There's this tangible darkness that feels so palpable and real. Like you can reach out and touch it and the texture is divine.
Hallowed - Cynthia Hand Heartbreaking, hopeful, beautifully written, and everything I ever wanted it to be.
Cinders & Sapphires - Leila Rasheed I couldn't put this book down. It was full of intrigue and courtly gossip. Downton Abbey for teens with an East Inda Trading Company feel. The writing is super good and the characters well thought out and portrayed well for the time period. A completely lush and guilty pleasure read. Highly recommended.
Rise - Andrea Cremer Getting into the nitty gritty of the Nightshade lore in RISE. Love this series.
