These Broken Stars (These Broken Stars) by Amie Kaufman
These Broken Stars (These Broken Stars)

Reader Eternal, April 24, 2015

This stunning novel is unlike anything else I've read. It's lushly romantic, mysterious and beautiful, mesmerizing and unputdownable. Everything about this book is pitch-perfect--setting, characters, plot, and utterly gorgeous writing. Though this book is set on an abandoned planet far from Earth and features space travel and intergalactic commerce, the real heart of the story is an examination of the beauty and the terror, the wonder and the sorrow of the human heart. It's breathtaking, moving, and unforgettable.

The Fall by Bethany Griffin
The Fall

Reader Eternal, April 24, 2015

This is the gothic novel I have always wanted to read! It's both terrifying and beautiful, guaranteed to induce both wonder and the most delicious kind of shivers. This lush retelling of "The Fall of the House of Usher" is one of the most gorgeously atmospheric stories I have ever read. It's fantastically creepy in the best possible way. It's heart-in-your-throat intense, yet it also has the most beautiful dreamlike quality. I loved every single word and will be eagerly awaiting Bethany Griffin's next novel.

Fairest: The Lunar Chronicles: Levana's Story by Marissa Meyer
Fairest: The Lunar Chronicles: Levana's Story

Reader Eternal, April 24, 2015

This mesmerizing, stunningly original story took my breath away. Marissa Meyer's utterly gorgeous writing just keeps getting better. I was so wholly captivated by Queen Levana's story. This book may be set on the moon, complete with cyborgs and domed cities, but the true heart of the story is a singularly insightful exploration of the nature of the human heart. It's the story of the origins of a villain like no other, full of love and hate, jealousy and loneliness, beauty and ugliness. This novel is unlike anything I've read before, full of both terror and wonder. It is, in a word, unforgettable.

Stolen by Lucy Christopher
Stolen

Reader Eternal, April 24, 2015

This book is truly something special. It's unlike anything I've read before. This is the kind of story that haunts you, that makes you think, that moves you deeply. It's the kind of story you never forget. This is one of the most atmospheric novels I've ever read. The wildly beautiful, harshly desolate Australian setting is so evocative that it almost becomes a character in itself. And as for the main characters, Gemma and Ty...I couldn't have asked for a more powerful story than what happens between these two complex, very real characters. Lucy Christopher tells their story with a delicacy and grace that few can touch. This is a bold and brave examination of the vagaries and complexities of the human heart, both terrifying and beautiful. You can't help but be moved.

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
Bone Gap

Reader Eternal, April 24, 2015

This novel took me completely by surprise. It's like nothing I've read before. Laura Ruby's writing is simply gorgeous. Eveything from characters to setting to voice is so exquisitely, perfectly drawn. This is one of the best magical realism novels I've ever read. The story has a haunting, dreamlike quality that is so incredibly beautiful and unusual. This book is a veritable garden of wonders-- lush, captivating, and unforgettable.
