You may have seen the movie version of this in the theatres, you may not. Either way, you should pick up this book – the first in a four book series.
Ethan Wate is a high school student living in the small Southern town of Gatlin. He’s lived here his whole life and he’s bored to death. He can’t wait to graduate and leave as quickly as possible. That’s until he meets Lena Duchannes, the new girl in his school who is completely different from anyone he’s met in Gaitlin. Not only does she dress and act differently from the other girls in town, she also has an odd connection with Ethan. He’s been dreaming about her since before he set eyes on her and soon after they meet he discovers that they can communicate by thought.
What are the special powers that Lena seems to possess? What is the mysterious family curse that she seems obsessed with? What’s the deal with her uncle who only appears at night and never ventures into town?
You’ll be hooked from the first chapter.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
17-year-old art student Karou is seemingly living an idyllic life in
the breathtakingly beautiful Prague. But her life is much more than meets the eye; she has a job that her art student friends couldn’t begin to imagine. Karou travels the globe collecting teeth for a monster with ties to another world. In exchange for these teeth, she is given wishes. But Karou would continue to do this job even without payment. The monster, or chimera, sending her on these assignments is as close to a parent as Karou has ever known. As the story moves along, Karou encounters an angel and begins to develop feelings for him. Angels are the mortal enemies of chimera and before she knows it Karou is swept into the ancient and deadly rivalry between angels and devils. This is the first in what is sure to be an outstanding trilogy!
