This month’s topic is Literary Love. I think this topic is awesome because I get to talk about new books, authors and covers that I’m currently obsessed with. I had a long list of potential winners. They were all so awesome, the only fair way I could narrow it down was to do a bracket system like the Sweet Sixteen. And the winners are….

I had such a fun time reading Defy. It’s one of the best books I’ve read all year. Larson does a amazing job at world building, you’ll lose yourself in this book. Defy is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble
Aaaannddd, last but certainly not least, newest author I’m excited about is…..
His latest novel, 3 Gates of The Dead released this fall. I found his writing style unique and intriguing. While I normally stick to the YA genre I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried 3 Gates of The Dead. I don’t have a ton of time to read, but I found myself completely losing track of time when I read it. I couldn’t wait to unravel the mystery and was shocked at the ending. Find out more about Jonathan Ryan on his Website. 3 Gates of The Dead is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
