My own personal list... Wow. There are so many great books that I've read this year. Right now I am reading the Dark Hunter series which isn't anything new but to me it is. And it's awesome! I'm losing a load of sleep reading "just one more chapter."
Another incredible book was Rebekah L. Purdy's "Summer Marked." It's the sequel to last years "The Winter People." It's a wonderful YA series about the fey, full of romance, love, and all kinds of twists and turns. I read this during my vacation in August at the OBX and I couldn't put it down.
However.... drumroll please.... And the #1 book that has rocked my socks off this year is....
Chris Ledbetter's amazing YA novel, DRAWN.
Caught between the sweltering fall landscape of Wilmington, NC beaches and southern illusions and expectations, all sixteen year-old Cameron Shade thinks about is art. That, and for Farrah Spangled to view him as more than just a friend. Cameron hopes he can win her heart through art.
After several warm interactions with Farrah, including painting together at the beach, Cameron discovers just how complex Farrah’s life is. Following a tense run-in with Farrah’s father, she forbids Cameron to speak to her again, but Cameron’s convinced there’s more behind the request.
To impress Farrah, Cameron sketches her portrait into a mysterious sketchbook. He nearly jumps from his skin when the sketch moves and communicates with him. Farrah is now in grave danger because the sketch he drew of her sucked her real-life’s soul into the sketchbook. Cameron now has twenty days to extract Farrah. To save her, he must draw himself into the book. If he fails… they both die.
If you don't believe me, USA TODAY, BTS Magazine and KIRKUS REVIEWS has been all over Drawn. And you know why? Because it is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Feel free to scroll through some of my earlier posts for my review of Drawn. It was unlike anything I've ever read. It was fresh, unique and the teenage male voice was adorable and endearing. You'll fall for these characters like I did. If YA isn't your thang, that's okay. Gift this to someone you know who digs the genre.
My gift for this hop is one Amazon Gift of Drawn. All I ask is that you "join this site" and leave a comment about why you think DRAWN sounds intriguing.
