bookshelves of doom: The Girl of Fire and Thorns -- Rae Carson
Our heroine is the daughter of an ex-priest and a demon. Fabulous, thoughtful, entertaining story about family, friendship, and romance; how magic and science might be one and the same; and what happens to gods when we stop needing them.

Misfit by Jon Skovron
A Demon of a Life in ‘Misfit’
Fabulous dark fantasy/mystery set in a town that's creepily perfect. ADORED IT.
Brown Book, Karen O'Neil, Young Adult, Karen Healey, Book Review, Book Covers, 2011 Cybill, Older Brother, New Zealand
Young adult fantasy novel set in New Zealand.
The Shattering by Karen Healey: This started out as an already interesting inquest into the suspicious and suspiciously similar deaths of the older brothers of many families. And Summerton: a town which prospers while other coastal New Zealand towns languish. Healy has an amazing way of weaving words. Believable dialog, relatable characters who actually grow and change in the span of the novel; all tied into a rather intricate and nicely laid out plot, this was a pleasure from start to end!
A MUST READ for fans of Buffy and Supernatural, and very deserving of its gorgeous cover and design. DYING for the sequel.

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake is a fucking awesome ghost story. Read it, y'all.
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake #BookReview #YoungAdult
The first free audiobook is Anna Dressed in Blood, by Kendare Blake, narrated by August Ross.

As you can see, it's also on sale at Amazon, in preparation for the upcoming release of Girl of Nightmares, the next book in the same series, so if you think you'd prefer to read rather than listen (or do both), be sure to grab it now.

Blood Red Road by Moira Young. Seriously on par with the Hunger Games. Can't wait for the rest of the Dust Lands series.
Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1) I highly recommend this to my fellow Hunger Games fans! It's amazing! Followed by Rebel Heart as the next book in the Dustland series.

Dust Lands: Blood Red Road by Moira Young - In a distant future, eighteen-year-old Lugh is kidnapped, and while his twin sister Saba and nine-year-old Emmi are trailing him across bleak Sandsea they are captured, too, and taken to brutal Hopetown, where Saba is forced to be a cage fighter until new friends help plan an escape.
Beautifully written, gripping, emotionally engaging historical fiction. Highly recommended.

Frost by Marianna Baer -- Was told this is a cool psychological thriller with an ending they did not see coming.
The Modern Gothic Appeal of 'Frost'
Awesomely addictive sports story about unlikely allies taking on corruption and evil. Mega horrifying in bits, but that makes the triumphs that much more satisfying. A must-read for fans of vintage Crutcher.

Leverage by Joshua Cohen. Realistic Fiction. The football field is a battlefield. There's an extraordinary price for victory at Oregrove High. It is paid on and off the football field. And it claims its victims without mercy, including the most innocent bystanders. When a violent, ever-escalating prank war has devastating consequences, an unlikely friendship between a talented fullback and a promising gymnast might hold the key to a school's salvation.
A Good Addiction: Book Review: Leverage by Joshua C. Cohen
Leverage / Joshua Cohen "High school sophomore Danny excels at gymnastics but is bullied, like the rest of the gymnasts, by members of the football team, until an emotionally and physically scarred new student joins the football team and forms an unlikely friendship with Danny."
2011 Winner. Hilarious and madcap, this is a must-read for fans of Carter Finally Gets It and other books featuring super-funny male narrators. Bonus points for portraying sports in a positive light.
