Wicked Lovely, and company

While whiling away the weeks and months (*cough, years) wait for the next books from my Major League Murders Row in Urban Fantasy (Armstrong, Butcher, Caine, Harris) the new authors have been pretty hit and lukewarm for me. So this waiting period has given me an opportunity to explore the YA Urban Fantasy that I normally don’t have time for.
I read constantly. I am also addicted to movies (I see at least 6 a month at the theatres). And I keep my DVR fully loaded with shit I constantly need to catch up on. Add into this a full time job and a social life = me not getting enough sleep. So most often the YA of the genre went purchased but unread. When I finally got to read them, I was surprised to get my socks blown off by quiet a few of these books which are I am excited to say most often the start of a new series.

Here’s the Hits List so far:

*Beast by Alex Flinn (Standalone novel in a new Fairy Tale Retelling series) - I'm foaming at the mouth!

*City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (Book One of the Mortal Instruments Trilogy) -I'm foaming at the mouth!
*Wicked Lovely
by Melissa Marr (First in a series) -a fan for life!
*Vampire Academy
by Richelle Mead (First in a new series) -a fan for life!
*Glass House
by Rachel Caine (Book One of the Morganville Vampires series) - a fan for life!
*Dead Girls Dance
by Rachel Caine (Book Two of the Morganville Vampires series) - I'm foaming at the mouth!
*Midnight Alley
by Rachel Caine (book Three of the Morganville Vampires Series) - I'm foaming at the mouth!
*The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod: Eighth Grade Bites by Heather Brewer(Book One) -Can I haz more?
by Stephanie Meyer (Book One in the Twilight series) - I'm Foaming at the mouth!
*New Moon
by Stephanie Meyer (Book Two in the Twilight series) -Can I haz more?
by Stephanie Meyer (Book Three in the Twilight series) - Can I haz more?
by Cynthia Leitich Smith (Book One) *and I’ve placed this series and author on notice, it is hanging on by a thread. Another flop ending and you are dead to me. - this motherfucker is on notice!
*The Astonishing Adventures of Fan Boy and Goth Girl
by Barry Lyga (while this is not YA it is a must read for anyone who is a nerd, a geek, an outcast, or if you are all of those but just in the closet about it like Cal and so many others!)
-A fan for life!

Thank YOU for leaving a comment. I loved your book! My library shamefully did not have a copy, so I donated a new one. Everyone has to read this book!
