A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Thorns and Roses

Reader Eternal, May 21, 2015

This gorgeous fantasy was an absolute joy to read. It combines two of my favorite things: Faeries and the tale of Beauty and the Beast. It's an epic, unique, and captivating re-imagining of a classic fairy tale. The story and characters were so compelling that they kept me awake well into the night turning page after page. Lush, romantic, terrifying and beautiful...this is a story I will never forget.

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
Saint Anything

This beautiful, haunting novel drew me in from the very first word. It's the kind of story that finds its way into your heart and mind and stays with you long after the final page. It's a deeply felt, complex, character-driven story told with a simple, breathtaking elegance. Sarah Dessen has a knack for writing quietly moving stories that I simply can't put down. Unforgettable!

The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder
The Probability of Miracles

Reader Eternal, May 6, 2015

This book was an incredible read. It's a story about a girl who really begins to live only when she's about to die. It's by turns laugh-out-loud funny and utterly heartbreaking. What a thought-provoking and inspiring book. I thoroughly enjoyed every word and would recommend it to anyone, of any age.

Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle
Vivian Apple at the End of the World

Reader Eternal, May 6, 2015

This wonderfully unique novel was a revelation. It's a post-apocalyptic story like no other. It's intense, terrifying, beautiful, thought-provoking, and utterly compelling. This story is a white-knuckle thrill-ride through the best and worst that humanity has to offer, from unfathomable hatred and greed to the deepest love and friendship. It is, in a word, unforgettable.

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
The Darkest Part of the Forest

Reader Eternal, May 2, 2015

This book is a veritable garden of wonders and terrors. It's the most absorbing thing I have read in a long time. Holly Black expertly blends a contemporary setting with the world of Faerie. This is not your typical sugar-sweet, glitter-winged Faerie. This is Faerie with teeth and claws, guaranteed to give you the shivers. I loved every word of this magical, beautiful story. This is the first Holly Black book that I have read, but it will certainly not be the last.
