The library sure is a fantasy land isn't it?
|Vicious by V.E. Schwab|
“Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human.”
Everything about this book makes me want to skip through a field of flowers and sing as loudly as I can (despite the fact that I can't sing;)) because this book sounds like a masterpiece. I've been craving an unusual superhero/fantasy book lately and this is it! The protagonists are not all rainbows, unicorns and flowers but instead their journeys let the author make us question EVERYTHING we thought we knew about heroes and villains.
|The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon|
“Not all of us know what we are. Some of us die without ever knowing. Some of us know, and never get caught. But we're out there. Trust me.”
(this quote reminds me a bit of the first paragraph of Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan:))
I'm not sure how I'll feel about this book but the main character is a dreamwalker so I ran with the wind and borrowed it! Because can you imagine getting to walk into someone else's dreams- this aspect has the potential to create imaginative and haunting scenes.
|The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson|
The twists and turns of Mistborn have inspired me to read more Brandon Sanderson. Everytime I look up new fantasy books he seems to come up so I'm off on a new Brandon Sanderson adventure! The book looks GINORMOUS though but that's not a problem:)
(I went a bit (...a lot) Amazon crazy...)
|Just One Day by Gayle Forman|
Romantic. Real. Painful. Beautiful.
I've heard so many good things about this book and I adored Where She Went so now that I finally have this book in my possession I can't wait to read it! Get ready to be loved Just One Day;)
|The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima|
Boy meets girl-and oh wait there's magic, a queendom and warriors too! We start out with the characters separately and then boom they meet in this detailed and dreamy fantasy world that the author apparently builds up so well. I'm so excited for this series!
|The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin|
The last book of the Mara Dyer series... need I say more?;) So far the books have been intense and consuming in the best possible way- it's one twisty, twirly roller coaster journey!
|Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell|
My fabulous best friend loved this and it seems like the kind of classic the world stops moving for:) I want to experience this whirlwind love story that is set during the American Civil War because I just know it's going to make me feel so much!
|Joey is me & Chandler is Gone With The Wind;)|
|Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta|
Melina Marchetta is so loved in the YA world so I'm extra excited to read her mysterious and daring fantasy series! The characters go on a quest to find the heir to the throne who everyone thought was dead- I love a good quest!
So that's it for now! Thanks for reading:)
