Marcia is Amused.

Dec 03 2012
What I read in November:
Cassidy Jones by Elsie Stokes
Everything Changes by Jonathan Tropper
Dog Stars by Peter Heller
How to Talk to a Widower by Jonathan Tropper
Reached by Ally Condie
Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morely
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
Valren by Kerry Castorano
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
The Girl Who Fell from the Sky by Heidi Durrow
I would recommend:
Seraphina, a brilliantly constructed world that I haven’t seen before, a strong female heroine, good writing.
Meant to Be, written by a tumblrer! A high school class trip to London full of mistaken identity, follies, misunderstandings, and a happy ending for those who deserve it (and the baddies get what they deserve). 
All Jonathan Tropper, all the time, obviously. I thought How to Talk to a Widower was especially well done. 
I enjoyed:
Dog Stars, a realistic adult dystopia with planes and guns and a shootout literally in my home town, outside my dad’s old office (Grand Junction, represent!)
The Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy - I have hope that the third one won’t let me down!
I would avoid:
Self-published books written by the wives of college friends.
Reached, and in fact the entire Matched trilogy. I enjoyed Matched, but the rest of the trilogy doesn’t just not live up to potential, they’re downright BAD.
So far in 2012 I’ve read 108 books and 40,708 pages, blowing by my 100 book challenge. Be my friend on GoodReads. I write actual reviews of every book I read.
Suggest more books to me! I think everyone’s telling me to download Middlesteins, what else?
