I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on Cora Cormack’s Roar, Book#1in the Stormheart series. It was published in June by Tor Teen but I don’t know who’s publishing it in Australia or when.
The biggest book I have that I ‘flew through’ is Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer at 756 pages. I have read bigger books, but none so fast as Breaking Dawn. I read it in 2 days with work/social interruptions.
While I can’t ever say I picked up and tried to read a book I thought looked boring, I did challenge myself as a teen to try my hand at some more adult fantasy. One of the books I picked up more for the author name rather than book itself was Polgara the Sorceress by David and Leigh Eddings. I would probably say that the cover and blurb didn’t really appeal but I wanted to try more grown up traditional fantasy. And I ended up really enjoying it! I’ve read it twice now, and I’d like to read it again at some point.
I’m going to say The Selection by Kiera Cass. We all knew the heroine was going to win the competition in the end, why drag it out into a trilogy with a two-part sequel and numerous shorts?
I feel like my behaviour is similar to Ellie from Sarra Manning’s It Felt Like A Kiss. She’s super hard working and although she comes from privilege she’s earned her way in the world. She’s straight as straight can be and only occasionally gets drunk. She’s a classic ‘good girl.’ She never asks for help, never takes a hand out, put herself through school and worked her way into a nice job. She also often gets accused of ex-boyfriends of being high strung, uptight, and in need of relaxing.
