...Obviously 2012 is a long way from over, we're just past the half-way mark! But I've already read 40+ books, so I'm going to highlight a few of my favorite reads (links to my reviews):
- Awake (Jessica Grey): As a fairy tale fangirl, I love this modern retelling of Sleeping Beauty. There are twists and turns galore, and I hear there's a trilogy in the works...
- Bourne (Lisa T Bergren): If you have not read the River of Time series, you need to stop right now and go. find. them! Seriously, these books are amazing - and Bourne took my breath away. I'm counting down the days until I get my hands on the next novella installment Tributary.
- Prophet (RJ Larson): Wow...Take the atmosphere and feel of the Old Testament, place it in a different world with just a twist of fantasy, and you've got one amazing read. For me, this was a beautiful, breath-taking read.
- Written in the Ashes (K. Hollan VanZandt): Historical fiction about the Library at Alexandria. What more could you ask for?
- The Scorpio Races (Maggie Stiefvator): Mystical, mysterious horses that come out of the sea - wild and untamed. A quiet boy who speaks their language. The tomboy who learns to read his heart. Part romance, part wild adventure story, this one captured my imagination and invaded my dreams.
