I love a good ghost story and this fantastic book by Jennifer Archer delivers. (View my review.)
This book caught me by surprise. I am not a big historical fiction fan, but Saundra Mitchell opened my eyes with this one. Not only did I enjoy it, but I found myself eagerly anticipating the next book Springsweet. (View my review.)
I know I have said this before, I am not a big realistic fiction fan, but something about this book by Alexa Martin has me hooked. I could sympathize with the main character's desperate desire to fit in. I couldn't put this one down until I finished. (View my review.)
I read My Fair Godmother last year, and while I thought it was cute and funny, it didn't make my favorites list. The same can't be said for the sequel. My Unfair Godmother is a hilarious journey through the middle ages. I loved the main character and I loved the twists and turns this fairytale novel gives you. (View my review.)
And my favorite book this year... I eagerly awaited the publication of this book. I had heard so many good things about this book and it sounded too good to be true. When it came out however, I discovered that this is probably going to be my number one book this year. I know there are more books to come, but they are going to have to work really hard and be really good to knock this fantastic dystopian from the top slot. (View my review.)
