The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan.
The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan is a young adult novel that I probably would have skipped right over if not for the glowing review I read by both Ana and Thea of The Book Smugglers a few weeks ago. The cover didn't necessarily grab my attention and the book blurb sounded a bit generic to me. In The Book Smugglers' joint "What She Said" review, however, both reviewers were so clearly impressed with the author's ability to write such a compelling story about a truly dark, distant character that obviously affected Ana and Thea immensely. Obviously, I just have to read it now.
One For the Money by Janet Evanovich.
A Stephanie Plum Novel, Book 1
I've heard so much about these Stephanie Plum books for so long and always wanted to check them out for myself. I hear the books are really fun and the series takes place in right here in New Jersey, USA. I'm hoping that that familiarity will add to my enjoyment of the book and not detract from it. I know it's fiction and all for fun, but I hope the Jersey stereotypes aren't overboard. That'll just drive me nuts. ;)
