Book phases

Published 20/05/2014 by leannecrabtree

I seem to have gotten over my New Adult phase, though I must still have about 50 books to read on my Kindle in the genre, and gone back to my love of Young Adult–which I seem to favour in paperbacks for some reason.

I’m just starting Betrayals, book two in Lili St. Crow’s Strange Angels series. If I’m being honest I can’t really remember the first book that well, only that the main characters dad was turned into a zombie within the first 40/50 pages and her struggle to find out who did it. My review of the first book wasn’t very helpful either 🙂 We’ll see if I can remember.

I’ve just finished the second book in Rachel Hawkins’ Hex Hall series, Raising Demons/Demonglass, and really enjoyed it so I’ve just gone and bought the third and final book Spellbound so I can see how it all plays out. I’m hoping for happy endings all round.

I recently read Kresley Cole’s Poison Princess, too. When I bought it I had no idea what it was about, she’s just an author I like, and though it took me a while to get in to, once I did I thought it was pretty good and can’t wait to read the second book to see what happens between Jackson and Evie.

I also found myself purchasing paperback copies of Gena Showalter’s White Rabbit Chronicles from my beloved The Works shop. I seem to have a love of zombies books–so long as there is some romance in them, too, of course–and look forward to reading them as I’m a big fan of the author’s Lords of the Underworld series and hope her YA books will be just as good.

Have you recently read a good series that you would recommend? Or have/are you currently going through a phase of only really reading one genre of book and if so, what is it?
