2012 Reads

I. Becca Fitzpatrick’s ‘hush, hush’ series (PG-14)

Fast paced, suspense, a bit of a thriller, a fallen angel romance
-In my opinion, “Un-put-down able.” *J.E. Wagner

1. ‘hush, hush’
2. Crescendo
3. Silence

II. Colleen Houck’s Tiger Series (PG)

A romantically innocent adventure, high school grad. meets India Princes and thus begins an Indiana Jones-like adventure
-In my opinion, AMAZING. * J.E. Wagner

III. Maggie Stiefvater’s Wolves of Mercy Falls Series (PG-13) 

Story told from alternating points of view, touching, supernatural romance,
-In my opinion, if you enjoyed the Bella/Edward romance of Twilight, check these books out. It’s different, but different in a good way. *J.E. Wagner

1. Shiver
2. Linger
3. Forever

IV. Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me (PG-14) (Debut Novel)

Fast-Paced, semi-dystopian themed, paranormal sci-fi fantasy, poetically written, steamy PG-14 romance scenes (not intended for readers under age 14)
-In my opinion, poetic, unique, artistic for a debut novel. * J.E. Wagner
V. Veronica Roth’s Divergent (PG) (Debut Novel)

Dystopian themed, fast-paced,
-In my opinion, an addicting read that kept me wanting to learn more; an excellently written story for a 22 year old debut author; less violent than The Hunger Games, and perhaps a more intriguing story. * J.E. Wagner

VI. Lauren DeStefano’s Wither (Chemical Garden) (Age 17 and up) (Debut Novel)

Dystopian tale, brief adult content in regards to situation being told, semi-fast paced, new ideas
-This book hooked me in at the beginning, constantly wanting to know what would happen and whether or not Rhine would survive or escape. I am anxious to read the second book, which comes out Feb. 2012.
