Welcome to Day 8 of my Blogoversary Bash!
Julie Kagawa is the author of The Iron Fey series:
Meghan Chase has a secret destiny—one she could never have imagined…
Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan's life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home.
When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she's known is about to change.
But she could never have guessed the truth—that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, to stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and to find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.
Here are 3 of my favorite books last year.
Nevermore by Kelly Creagh: I loved the dark, eerie atmosphere of Nevermore, and the fact that Edgar Allen Poe was a prominent figure in the book. I loved the creepy monsters from the writer's imagination. But mostly I loved Varen, who was dark, brooding, stoic, and completely swoon-worthy. (There I go with my bad boy obsession again.)
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff: Another creepy, eerie book, this time about changelings and faeries and wicked things that live in the town's slag heap. Love it. Love that the Fey are really never named, but you know that they are Fey. And that they do what faeries do, which is screw up mortal lives.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: Yes, I'm late to the party. I just recently read the first book of the Hunger Games series and, like everyone else, was completely fascinated. Though I suspect I'm on the wrong team. Ah well. Go Team Gale.
Haha I love Julie's definition of the fey: "they do what faeries do, which is screw up mortal lives." So true, so true. I loved dark and gritty atmosphere of The Replacement as well. I'm so glad Julie finally jumped on The Hunger Games bandwagon -- and major bonus points for being Team Gale!! Now I just have to read Nevermore -- it's definitely been on my TBR for a while now.
Thanks so much for sharing, Julie!
