Alex, Approximately by Jenn Bennett

I very rarely pick up a young adult contemporary, but once in a while a fellow blogger’s comments, or in this case, the voices of many drove me to do so. ALEX, APPROXIMATELY by Jenn Bennett was absolutely delightful! Witty and realistic with friendships and romances that were messy and beautiful. Grab it, whether you are young or young at heart.

Shadow Run by AdriAnne Strickland & Michael Miller

Jay Kristoff described SHADOW RUN as “kinda like FIREFLY had an illegitimate lovechild with DUNE.” and I knew I had to read it. Kristoff was right, SHADOW RUN could be their baby. I enjoyed this sci-fi fantasy that took us deep into space and placed us aboard the starship Kaitan Heritage. Action, suspense, a brilliant crew and a splash of romance had me completely engaged.

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

*Mutters* Why did I hold off reading Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas despite buying the book on release day? I had forgotten how much I had enjoyed the brilliant world and characters within the Throne of Glass series. I love how this series has evolved as different story threads have woven together. Queen of Shadows offered another addictive installment.

Heartless by Marissa Meyer

I was ecstatic when I picked up a signed copy of Heartless by Marissa Meyer at BEA 2016. I love her Lunar Chronicles series and have long been a fan of Alice in Wonderland penned by Lewis Caroll. Everyone loves to hate the antagonist the Queen of Hearts, who declared, “off with his head” at the slightest provocation.
