Author Library: Jennifer Armentrout
Some of my favorite books of all time are older books, going back to the days of RL Stine’s Fear Street series (which I still have) and LJ Smith’s Nightword series. I think I just dated myself there. My favorite book is probably LJ Smith’s The Forbidden Game. It was the first book ever to make me cry. My second favorite book is All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarqu. Other than that, I’ve never been a fan of books like Wuthering Heights and I never got the romance of Romeo and Juliet (I know, it’s a play not a book, but hey, you read it, so). Meeting a dude and dying for him days later is not romance. It’s kind of creepy.
Right now my library is out of control. I have a TBR pile that keeps growing and growing, with books ranging from Melissa Marr to an actual demon lexicon (research purposes). And yes, that is a Diagnostic manual for mental illness you see above my TBR pile.
Some of the books I recently loved and YOU will love too are Larissa Ione’s Demonica Series on the adult side, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin, Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon, Minder Series by Kate Kaynak, Demon Trapper’s Daughter by Jana Oliver, Personal Demons and Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers, and Leah Clifford’s A Touch Mortal.
Congrats on the release, and thank you, Jennifer, for sharing that and I agree on a few of your favorites there!
