    YA Book Recommendations (early 2014 edition)

YA fantasy - Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill YA fantasy...

    #1 Ladies Detective Series by Alexander McCall Smith

    I've only read one or two of them, but I've heard the whole series on audio CD. These books are awesome. I actually don't like Smith's other series, but this one is definitely worth diving into.

    Taylor Stevens: Vanessa Munroe series

    Just sort of stumbled across these in the library the other day and was impressed by the characterization. Has anybody else read this author? What do you think of her? Her own story is just as interesting as the book she wrote.

    I'm not really a nonfiction fan, but this book is a very interesting read about the state of human trafficking in today's world. Highly recommended for anybody interested in learning more about slavery.

    Brandon Sanderson

    The Mistborn Trilogy was a lovely series.... perhaps on the long side, but great all the same. It's fantasy but believable. The Way of Kings was all right too. I haven't read any of his other works besides starting to read Alloy of Law.
