Book Recommendations for the Spring

I have said many times, I am a self professed nerd. I love to read! Here are some reads that I enjoyed.

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

I really enjoyed this Young Adult Fiction trilogy. It was an easy and entertaining to read. It reminds me of the reality TV shows we enjoy so much like the Bachelor. I always love a good competition!

Barnes and Noble describes the book as:

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself—and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross

This Young Adult Fiction book included action, mystery, romance and drama. It was a great read! It's the first in the series of four books.

Barnes and Noble describes the book as:
In 1897 England, sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne has no one…except the "thing" inside her
When a young lord tries to take advantage of Finley, she fights back. And wins. But no normal Victorian girl has a darker side that makes her capable of knocking out a full-grown man with one punch.
Only Griffin King sees the magical darkness inside her that says she's special, says she's one of them. The orphaned duke takes her in from the gas lit streets, against the wishes of his band of misfits. And Finley thinks she might finally be a part of something, finally fit in—until a criminal mastermind known as the Machinist threatens to tear the group apart….

The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa
The Iron King book cover initially caught my eye and that's why I decided to try to read it. I was in-between other book series and nothing was available to be checked out from the library at the time. I surprisingly enjoyed this book! It's the first in the set of four.
Barnes and Noble describes the book as:
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.

For Meghan is the daughter of a mythical faery king…and a pawn in a deadly war. Now Meghan will learn just how far she'll go to save someone she cares about, stop a mysterious evil no faery creature dare face…and find love with a young prince who might rather see her dead than let her touch his icy heart.

The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series by J.R. Ward

I am still in the process of reading this series, but I really like it. I tend to always like vampire books, but this includes mystery, action and romance. I came across this series after trying to find a book series like Sookie Stackhouse and everywhere I looked online pointed to this series. I agree! It's a great read!
Barnes and Noble describes the first book, Dark Lover as:
The only purebred vampire left on the planet and the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who killed his parents centuries ago. But when his most trusted fighter is killed—orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate—Wrath must put down his dagger and usher the beautiful female into another world.
Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn’t there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of the Brotherhood and blood frighten her. Yet his touch ignites a dawning new hunger—one that threatens to consume them both....
I hope you can curl up and enjoy a good read!
Until next time,
