Raven Cycle #3: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
Raven Cycle #3: Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Reader Eternal, November 20, 2014

If anyone can make a grown-up person believe in magic, it's the incomparable Maggie Stiefvater. This third installment in "The Raven Cycle" is a veritable garden of wonders both terrifying and beautiful. I don't know how to adequately describe this series except to say that it is like absolutely nothing else out there. Not only is the storyline mind-blowingly unique and fascinating, but the characters are so compelling, so real, so believable that they live in my mind with an immediacy that few characters can match. Maggie Stiefvater is a master storyteller. If you pick up this book, prepare to have your heart and mind moved to wonder beyond imagining.

5th Wave #02: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey
5th Wave #02: The Infinite Sea

Reader Eternal, November 12, 2014

Oh, Rick Yancey---where have you been all my life? I knew from the very first sentence that this second installment of "The 5th Wave" trilogy was going to be just as stunning as the first. This is everything I've ever wanted in a post-apolcalyptic story and then some. It's simply breathtaking. This story is like nothing I've read before. It's haunting, heartbreaking, chill-inducing, mind-boggling, jaw-dropping, terrifying, and so indescribably beautiful. Rick Yancey continues to illuminate the essential question of what it really means to be human. If you are searching for a novel that will capture both your imagination and your heart, you need look no further.

Four (Divergent) by Veronica Roth
Four (Divergent)

Reader Eternal, August 3, 2014

Tobias Eaton is one of the most complex and fascinating characters I've ever read. Vernica Roth's new short story collection, told entirely from his point of view, gives stunning insight into this remarkable and unforgettable character. I was completely mesmerized from start to finish by these beautifully written, richly detailed scenes. Tobias is a mass of complexities and contradictions: brave, yet plagued by doubt; confident, yet heart-breakingly vulnerable; a leader with no real desire to lead. Tobias is as real as they come. These stories only add to the richness and depth of this incredible character and the series as a whole. A wonderful read!

The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay
The Sea of Tranquility

Reader Eternal, July 21, 2014

Every once in a while a story comes along that captures the imagination and the heart from the very beginning. This is one of those books. This is a standout novel in every possible way: flawless writing, superb characterizations, and breathtaking romance. The story of Nastya and Josh is so compelling, so believable, so gut-wrenchingly real. I was completely swept away by this moving, beautifully told story. It's an emotional, realistic read that pulls no punches. There's a stunning depth and complexity to these characters that is so rare. It's much more than just another run-of-the-mill romance. It's also an unflinchingly brave and honest story about the aftermath of tragedy, forgiveness, love, hatred, and hope. A truly unforgettable book.
