book blogger hop (4)
Friday! I can't believe it's finally here. This has really been one of the longest weeks I can remember. There were times I thought I might not survive it. Anyways.....
This week's question for the blog hop: Who is your favorite new-to-you author so far this year?
It would have to be a tie between Francisco Stork and Suzanne Collins. I can't believe I had missed The Hunger Games train for as long as I did but I am definitely on it now and so are various friends and family members thanks to my manic raving about it. CAN'T WAIT FOR MOCKINGJAY!!!!
I admire Francisco Stork for slightly different reasons. I finished The Last Summer of the Death Warriors a couple weeks ago and it completely blew me away (review here). It wasn't as much of a page turner as The Hunger Games (nothing is, at least not since the days of Harry Potter), but it has an amazing depth and intellect that is very rare in YA.
