…Book With A Green Cover
Guys, I can’t tell you how ecstatic I was when Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit announced that she was starting this awesome meme. Recommend A… is finally giving me the chance to cater to my inner nerd for specificity and randomness!! AND I LOVE IT. So props to Shanyn, who is fab for starting this up. I’m looking forward to giving some attention to books that might have missed everyone’s radar for one reason or another. Woo hoo!
The Lost Conspiracy by Frances Hardinge. This book has a green cover because it takes place in a JUNGLE! Holla! But seriously, this is one of the better, cleverer, more imaginative, completely unique fantasies I can remember reading, all because Frances Hardinge did something that I almost never see: set a fantasy world in a steamy, lush, dangerous tropical jungle. The result is pretty effing awesome. I wouldn’t recommend this to people who don’t usually like fantasy or who are just dipping their toe because it’s pretty in depth and sometimes hard to follow. But still, AWESOME.
Fablehaven: Fablehaven #1 by Brandon Mull. Keeping it with the fantasies this week! FABLEHAVEN is the incredibly solid beginning to one of my favorite middle grade series about secret magical preserves that safeguard fairies and other magical creatures good and evil, until the shizz hits the fan. Conspiracies, lies, traitors, and dangers lurk at every turn as siblings Kendra and Seth must try to save everything they know, and the people they love, from the bad guys. SO. STINKING. GOOD.
