c.j.'s selections ten ten ten
|one||Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas|
I cannot overstate my love of Sarah Maas. ACOTAR was fun, but Throne of Glass is where my heart's at. It killed me a little when they announced there wouldn't be ARCs.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
The whole Grisha trilogy amazed and inspired me. Leigh writes like a painter, and her plots are thrilling. I'm really excited to return to her world.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Chaos Walking was a cheeky, funny series with a decent amount of darkness. His characters are so heartfelt. I love the idea of the not-the-Chosen-One theme.
I Crawl Through It by A.S. King
A.S. King is amazing. Her books are always innovative, emotional, and written with a gravity that's hard to find in YA. I'd read a napkin if she wrote on it.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
It's a book written in memos, transcripts, and redacted statements. I'm not sure how well it'll work, but I'm impressed that they're trying something crazy and new.
Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
One thing YA needs more of is good horror. I've yet to come across one that's truly chilling, not since The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee. I've got high hopes for this one.
The Uninvited by Cat Winters
I haven't disliked anything by Cat Winters yet. I don't think it's possible. Her supernatural historical romances are just the right mix of mystery and swoons.
|eight||The Copper Gauntlet by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare |
Oh, how I love this series! It has the charm of Harry Potter, but it stands well on its own. Callum is great, and I need to know what happened after that ending!
Court of Fives by Kate Elliott
I'm always down for a good fantasy. Not only has this one gotten some good hype, but I'm insanely intrigued by this "Game of Fives" thing.
|ten||The White Rose by Amy Ewing |
I loved The Jewel, which I got at BEA last year. It didn't get nearly enough cred. I'm psyched to see what's next for Violet!
