I'm genuinely starting to worry that we have the same brain.
The only reason I'm posting this is because, to be honest, I put a lot of work into typing this up instead of doing homework. Procrastinating is hard.
So, anyway. This is my take on the list of books Megan posted a few days ago.
This year was an AMAZING year for debut authors. Every single one of these books has a sequel coming out soon(ish) that I am EAGERLY ANTICIPATING. These books are the books that I have read multiple times because they're JUSTSOGOOD.
1.The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
2. Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi
I actually just reread this book because I love it so much. Shatter Me is pretty much the best thing ever. Juliette is one of my favorite main characters...ever. She's really tough and badass and awesome, but at the same time very vulnerable and normal and easy to relate to. And Adam is
3. Divergent by Veronica Roth
Ahhhh. Divergent. I remember reading this in the spring, hiding the book under my desk during school and hoping the teacher didn't notice. Good times. Tris is officially my favorite protagonist from a 2011 book. Possibly my favorite protagonist of ALL TIME. I want to be her. And Four? *swoons* FOUR IS THE BEST THING EVER. Even if this book wasn't amazing in every way possible, I would still love it because of Four. So. If you haven't read this book, there is probably something wrong with you. No offense. But really. Go read it now. EVERYONE has been buzzing about Divergent, and I keep seeing it pop up on Best of 2011 lists. So this is no exception. I just love this book so much, you guys.
4. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
Two words, my friends: DEMIGODS and HOTGUYS. Holy crap. This book combines romance with Greek mythology, and it's pretty freaking awesome. It's very unique and
5. Wither by Lauren Destefano
6. Die For Me by Amy Plum
Last but not least, Die For Me! Basically, all you need to know is this: Sexy. Zombies. Seriously. I am mentally dating Vincent. *giggles* And this book is set in PARIS, which makes it a thousand times more romantic! I just... THISBOOK. I did a whole lot of SWOONING when I read this. Which, okay, I was swooning over guys in every single one of the books on this list. But Vincent is FRENCH. !!!!!! Sorry for the inability to form, like, coherent sentences. But this book is just amazing and I can't possibly be cool and calm and collected about it. So, yeah. If you want to meet a hot guy named Vincent, read this book immediately.
So, yeah. A great year for debut authors. I can't wait to get my hands on the sequels:)
P.S. Happy New Year :D
