I read the e-galley of Wither and loved it. I'm very happy to have a physical copy of Fever, book two in the series. I'm almost finished reading it and...what can I say, it's a great read: somber, dark and intriguing. I've just peeked at the pages of Cinder. It looks good and I'm fascinated by the cover.
I read The Kneebone Boy by Ellen Potter a couple of years ago, and if you haven't read it, you need to! It was cover love that drew me in. She was so sweet and kind to send me a signed copy of the hardcover edition. I'm happy to receive an Arc of her next book The Humming Room. I'm not a usual reader of middle grade novels, but if Ellen has written it, I'm in! When I read Insatiable, it was the first book I'd ever read by Meg Cabot. I thought it was YA, but it's an adult book. She jumped on the vampire wagon and did a good job of it, I'd say. Overbite is the sequel and I was stoked to get it. It wasn't clear that there was going to be a follow up book, but I'm sure glad there is.
I went to a writer's conference a couple of weeks ago, and Cassandra Clare was one of the speakers. She talked about what else? The ubiquitous love triangle in YA and how to do it right. She's pretty quirky and a little on the kinky side...lol...I've never read her books, but they've been on my TBR list, so I figured this was as good a time as any to pick them up. I spent money on these and purchased the first trilogy she wrote to get me started.
