There is something rather wonderful about picking up a book, without any hype, and finding that its just as good as the New York Bestseller everyone is raving about. Its a rare occurrence, which is why its a cherished experience, as a reader.
Most people will know Naomi Novik for her book Uprooted, but I knew her for her Napoleaonic War books with Dragons. I loved her depiction of trainer and dragon, just thinking about a warm bubble of warmth.
This book was incredibly clever in how it flipped traditional fantasy tropes on its head.
3. The Ninth Rain
I think more people need to pick up Jen's books. I absolutely love her characters, plot and most of all? Her FANTASTIC dialogue.
I go on about this book enough. Look for my review in the A-Z Book Reviews tab, if you want to know more as to why this book is great.
5. The Archived
I love this book series. Well of the two books of the trilogy we have anyway. I support Victoria in any decision she makes in reference to finishing the series. I can understand why she feels the way she does (the publisher pulled out). The reason why we haven't go book 3 is because not enough people picked it up and read it.
