CITY OF FALLEN ANGELS by Cassandra Clare
If you have read the first three books in the Mortal Instruments series (and if you haven't, shame on you!), this is the next book in the series. I have stayed up late the past two nights savoring the words in this novel. It's AMAZING! Get it, get it today!!
Kate Lowry didn't think dead best friends could send e-mails, but when she gets one from Grace, she's not so sure. Now Grace must prove that Grace's death was more than some tragic accident. The voice in this book is unbelievable and I was riveted until the end. It had a great premise and engaging pace. I love a good mystery. Everyone should buy this book and die their hair pink!
THE DUFF by Kody Keplinger
Goodreads: Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.
I was very lucky to be given an ARC of this soon-to-be published book by Elana Johnson. It was so awesome I read it in two sittings (it would have been one, but I had to sleep in order to teach the next day!). It is a YA Dystopian novel. I found it fresh, action-packed, and Vi is a girl after my own heart (snarky and cool!). Mark your calendars, folks! It'll be available on June 7, 2011!
So, those are my salutes to my favorite, GREAT novels of 2010-2011! What great books have you devoured?
