The Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong: Fantastic series about a young necromancer who ends up in a group home once she starts seeing dead people. Turns out that there are other supernatural teens there and all hell breaks loose.
The writing is right up there with her previous books and she easily writes about these new characters but still in the same world as her Women of the Otherworld series. It’s nice to see even when she is just talking about people from the past books in passing. (None of the old characters come into play.)
The Host—Stephanie Meyers: This book doesn’t get as much credit as it should. It’s always overshadowed by her Twilight series, and I think it’s a great read as well. (The only science fiction book I’ve been able to stand come to think of it.) Great writing, simple plot that still manages to keep you enamored and characters that make you smile.
Elixir—Hilary Duff: Like I’ve said before, this book was pretty surprising. She had a clear plot and lovely characters. AND she managed to write a decent book. I really liked it, expected more from the ending, but still, it was really good.
The Hunger Games series—Suzanne Collins, I can’t get enough of this series. I wish I hadn’t finished it because I should have savoured it. These were amazing books! Easy to read, can’t lose the plot even if you wanted to (and you won’t!) and the characters are the best around. I adore this series.
