This post is based on the concept of "Recommend a..." from the Chick Loves Lit blog. This week's meme is "Recommend a...BOOK YOU READ THIS YEAR."
My two recommendations are the first and second books I read in 2012. Both were amazing and rank at the top of my "Best of" lists for their genres.
"Book You Read This Year" Recommendation #1
Candlewax by C. Bailey Sims
Reviews of Candlewax:
Review from Chronicles of a Book Evangelist
Review from Michelle at Nocturne Romance Reads
"Book You Read This Year" Recommendation #2
Blood Red Road by Moira Young
Blood Red Road takes place in the distant future, and things are not good. Told in a vernacular similar to Todd's in the Chaos Walking trilogy, Blood Red Road is about Saba, a teen girl whose twin brother gets kidnapped right and whose father was killed trying to save him. Saba and her younger sister Emmy set out to find Lugh and bring him home. Along the way, they find danger, gangs, human decay, and even love.
The sequel, Rebel Heart is set for release October 30, 2012. How are we going to wait THAT LONG?
