Author: Shari Arnold

Genre: YA Fantasy/Paranormal
Release Date: November 17, 2015


Only Bauer Grant can pull off gorgeous while dead. But staying dead is another thing entirely. When he wakes up at his own funeral, the town of Mystique calls it a miracle, until it happens again. Something is bringing the residents of Mystique back to life, but what? Presley Caine finds herself caught up in the mystery when Bauer asks her to visit him. Presley can’t figure out why the most popular guy in school is so drawn to her. And when Bauer is kidnapped soon after, she looks to Bauer’s brooding best friend Sam, whose dad works for the powerful Mystique military base, for answers. In her quest to discover the truth, Presley’s relationship with Sam deepens, her feelings for Bauer are tested, and it becomes clear that her own mysterious past is somehow connected to these strange events. But is she strong enough to handle the truth when it is finally revealed?


Because I read a lot of YA books, some of my favorites are going to be part of a series or all of a series. These books are not in order of favorite. My mind doesn’t work that way.

Here we go:

1. SCARLET, LADY THIEF and LION HEART by A. C. Gaughen. Hands down. Best series. Ever. I will reread this book a thousand times.

2. ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Stephanie Perkins. Romance. Characters. Stephanie. She does it so well.

3 Any book written by Sarah Dessen. I would read a grocery list by her. And I mean that in the most un-stalkerish way. If I had to choose a favorite, I would choose ALONG FOR THE RIDE because I read that the day I returned from the hospital after delivering my son. And MOON & MORE because I absolutely loved Emaline as a character.

4. REVOLUTION by Jennifer Donnelly. I got completely lost in this book. I was in France. I was in New York. Amazing.

5. The first two books in the HUNGER GAMES series by Suzanne Collins were some of the best writing I’ve ever read. Loved them.

6. Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I loved this book. And I always will.

7. THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS series by Rae Carson. This is how you write a series. Loved every single one.

8. THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas. I am not currently caught up with this series but I’m three deep and when I’m reading these books nothing else creeps in. Love them.

9. I can not compile a list of favorite books without including my favorite Romance authors, Sarah Maclean and Kristan Higgins. They definitely know how to write a love story and I will read every single one.

10. WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE by Trish Doller. This book was so many things. Trish Doller has a way with her characters. This story was beautiful and heart-breaking at the same time. Loved it. 

Thanks for stopping by and sharing some of your favorite books with us today Shari!
