This week’s list:
Top Ten Books I Recommend The Most
Why? Because it’s a story about the relationship between two sisters. Minimal romance. And creepy supernatural stuff in contemporary YA.
Why? BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST WRITTEN YA FANTASY FLUFF EVER. And twelve dancing sister princesses? ‘Nuff said.
Why? Mean Girls meets Groundhog Day. And I bawled at the end of it. (I mentioned I like creepy supernatural stuff in contemporary YA, right?)
A magical healer who heals by taking on the illness/injuries of others! And political intrigue! And a badass love interest who I initially hated (WHICH I LOVE!)!
Why? THE MOST BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN BOOK IN THE WHOLE WORLD EVER.
Why? Hey, wanna read a romance? THIS ISN’T ONE!
Why? It’s just good.
Why? It’s Australian high fantasy about someone who fights necromancers! IT EVEN HAS ZOMBIES IN IT AND I HATE ZOMBIES BUT I DON’T CARE IT’S JUST SO GOOD ARGH.
Why? THEY ARE MAKING A MOVIE. READ IT. READ IT BEFORE THE BANDWAGON GETS TOO FULL. (also – vampire royalty, half-breed guardians, magic, high school drama, a strong sisterly relationship between two best friends, and lots of mystery!)
More great Aussie high fantasy – island fantasy! And good guys who may not be good guys! and REALLY evil bad guys! Did I mention the bad guy is REALLY evil? And also – another strong female friendship! YAY!
What I learned from this exercise: I recommend books with strong female friendships, good Aussie fantasy, and beautiful writing. Do you have any recommendations for me?
