Lindsay's Reads for 2013
2013 is going to be a fantastic year for first books and sequels alike! If I had to pick just one 2013 book that I'm dying to read, though, it would be Rachel Hartman's Dracomachia, the sequel to 2012's Seraphina--an achingly gorgeous and witty YA fantasy that's up for this year's Morris Award. Fortunately, there are plenty more books for me to devour:
Star Cursed by Jessica Spotswood - Sequel to last year's lovely and fresh Born Wicked, continuing the trials and tribulations of the witchy Cahill sisters in a fascinating alternate-history version puritan America.
The Boy on the Bridge by Natalie Standiford - Soviet Russia, angsty romance, and Natalie Standiford's always brilliant prose. You know I'm all over that.
The Secret Place by Tana French - agggghhh another Tana French murder mystery in Ireland you guys I can't even help myself.
All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill - The Terminator meets The Time Traveller's Wife, with a dash of Mean Girls for good measure? SOLD.
Charm & Strange by Stephanie Kuehn - Promises a wonderful and complex male main character who is LITERALLY at war with himself.
