(Jen’s Choice – Review)

1. Hunting Lila (Lila #1) by Sarah Alderson – Sarah Alderson also goes by the name Mila Gray, and I fell madly in love with her book Come Back to Me earlier this month.  So I can’t wait to read her paranormal book that is about special powers while being laced with mystery and romance!

2. Scarlet (Scarlet #1) by A.C. Gaughen – I adore Robin Hood, and this story is not only about Rob but Scarlet who is posing as a girl in his band of thieves.  This book looks as though it will be filled with peril, adventure and romance (I hope), which are some of my favorite things!

3. The Book of Ivy (The Book of Ivy #1) by Amy Engel – A post-apocalyptic US where the daughters of the losing side, from war, marry the the sons of the winning side and this year one of the daughters is supposed to murder one of the sons who is also the President’s son.  This screams star-crossed lovers, and I absolutely adore those stories!

4. The Archived (The Archived #1) by Victoria Schwab – Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books, where each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures only Librarians can read.  The premise sounds fabulous, and there should be more than enough mystery to keep us glued to the pages!

5. Racing Savannah (Hundred Oaks #4) by Miranda Kenneally – I loved her book Breathe, Annie, Breathe.  It was a beautiful story about loss, healing and new beginnings.  Then Stealing Parker was a sweet, but insightful contemporary.  So I can’t wait to read this one too!

6. The Bone Season (The Bone Season #1) by Samantha Shannon – This book is about a girl who commits treason simply by breathing since she is a dreamwalker, who is a clairvoyant, in the year 2059.  She is attacked, drugged and kidnapped, and if she wants to regain her freedom she must allow herself to be nurtured in this prison where she is meant to die.  Yes please!

7. Open Road Summer by Emery Lord – A girls-only summer of break-up ballads and healing hearts.  A boy whose boy-next-door charm proves difficult to resist.  And navigating the ups and downs of fame and friendship while discovering that giving your heart to the right person is always a risk worth taking.  Sounds like a lot of fun to me!

8. The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler – I have the book on my ipad, but I desperately want a physical copy!   This was just too good. The poetic writing, the vivid explanations, the awesome setting, and an unlikely love that made my heart stop beating at some point (I might have flat-lined, who the hell knows, it was too damn hot) and my stomach erupt into thousands of butterflies.

9. Firsts by Laurie Elizabeth Flynn – Again, I have the book on my ipad, but after reading it I need this book on my shelf!  I loved this book with all my heart-even as every increasing page ripped my heart to shreds a little more.   I really hope people will open their mind and read about this wonderful set of flawed characters

10. Kiss the Sky (Calloway Sisters #1) by Krista Ritchie & Becca Ritchie – Did you notice the trend?  Another book I fell hard for, but I desperately need the physical copy!  It’s about a Virgin. Sex addict. Daredevil. Alcoholic. Smartass … Jackass. Her five friends are about to be filmed on reality TV.  And I adored Connor!

These are some of the “Books We Wouldn’t Mind Santa Leaving Under Our Tree This Year”.  Although to be honest, each of our lists have a few hundred at least hehe. 🙂   What are some books that you would want Santa to leave under your tree?
