Welcome to the Book Blogger Hop weekend! Each week, the Book Blogger Hop runs from Friday to Monday and is a book blogger block party hosted every week by Jennifer at crazy-for-books.com. This is an awesome way to meet new bloggers and discover new books. This week's question is: WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE NEW-TO-YOU AUTHOR SO FAR THIS YEAR?
Fortunately for me, I keep track of what I read and was able to go back and pick out those new-to-me authors that really stood out this year. It was not an easy choice but here goes...
My favorite author so far is Sarah Rees Brennan. This is pretty impressive because I have only read her first book, The Demon's Lexicon. I have my own copy of book two, The Demon's Covenant, but have not gotten to it yet. (I have the US covers, the ones on the left.)
I reviewed The Demon's Lexicon in April and actually picked it to be my favorite book read that month. An awesome mix of YA and urban fantasy, The Demon's Lexicon is set in the UK and is about a small family comprised of a pair of brothers and their mother, constantly on the move to keep hidden from a group of magic-using murderers who are determined to capture their mother. Nick and Alan will work their way into your heart and shock you with a surprise ending I didn't see coming.
Have a great weekend!
