November was National Novel Writing Month. This year I was determined to complete the 50,000 words, and after that, a novel. Reading sometimes takes a hit when it comes to revising and writing. It wasn't hard to pick what books to help inspire me through the times when my brain needs a break. And, if you need a break from the mundane of everyday, these are definitely ones to pick up.
Prodigy by Marie Lu
Prodigy is the second book in the Legend dystopian series. The books flip back and forth between the perspectives of Day, the country's most wanted criminal, and June, who is the prodigy of the Republic. Their worlds end up colliding and they are at the head of the fate of their country. I'm already dying to read Book 3!
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Another second book in a series. The first book, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, is one of my new favorite books ever. Days of Blood and Starlight is completely different from the first book since Karou has changed for the first book from her discoveries, and she takes responsibility for the people in her past. This is why Karou is such a great heroine worth following.
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
This is a first in a trilogy. I finally know why people love the main character Evie so much. She is fun and full of personality as she finds herself in sticky situations. I love the new take on paranormal creatures of an agency who tries to keep them under control with the help of Evie's ability to recognize them even underneath their fake skin. If you want a fun read, this series is definitely for you.
Be sure to watch out for my NaNoWriMo and YA in the Sun posts coming up in the next week. I'm a little behind on posting, but hope to pick them up again in January.
