Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor This book has been going nuts over on Goodreads so I thought I would pick it up and give it a go. I am not a big fan of Young Adult Fantasy as I usually find it patronising and 'childish' (well what else would you expect from books aimed at teenagers) but this one is different. The book is set in a beautiful location and is not afraid to challenge the reader with its language.

Enclave by Ann Aguirre: Very good story; with hints of Hunger Games mixed with Monstromologist. At points the writing seemed inconsistent or not as polished but on the whole it kept my interest and was a quick read. In Deuce’s world, people earn the right to a name only if they survive their first fifteen years. By that point, each unnamed has trained into one of three groups–Breeders, Builders, or Hunters. Deuce has wanted to be a Huntress for as long as she can remember.

My Review of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins #Books #HungerGames
The Hunger Games Series - Suzanne Collins. Man what a great book series! Don't read last book though, ends horribly. Keeps you on the edge of your seat till the end :D
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. another book on my top ten list of all time favorite books. Its disturbing in the best possible way. Its a series that doesn't coddle you and isn't coated in sugar like many of the recent young adult litereature(Twilight). Its gritty and grim, and will leave you worn out from an emotional roller coaster. It has a depth to it that many YA fiction authors are afraid to use. And speaking of YA Fiction, this series isn't limited to youth, it can touch those of any age. Definitely a series worth reading.
The Hunger Games- I mean... C'mon!! Great book- I admire teen and YA authors who write eloquently about relevant and interesting topics without dumbing down just because the target audience is younger. Bravo Suzanne Collins! Can't wait to see the movie.
