I have to admit this isn’t a recent discovery, and it’s one I’ve been meaning to tell you about for a while. I could give you excuses, but you’ve probably heard them all and don’t really care anyway.
The new author to whom the title of the this post refers is Jennifer Lynn Barnes. She is totes amazeballs – I’m trying out some new words, so please skip over them/ignore them if they make you cringe. I’m not sure they’re really me, either, but I like to give everything a go at least once… except drugs. I steer well clear of those. And funky cheeses.
Anyway, Jennifer ‘please never stop writing’ L Barnes, is fantabulous. I began with The Naturals series, then read her back catalogue, but her piece de resistance and most recent installment, is The Inheritance Games. I have read it three (count them, one-two-three) times! Now, I discover she’s bringing out a fourth book to the trilogy tying up the lives of the brothers.
I highly recommend her. Teen, suspense, humour, mystery, puzzles, intelligence (so much intelligence), and of course the all-important romantic angles. Comparable books would be Tijan’s Insider series, or Erin Watt’s Paper Princess, but without the sex. Give her a go – if you’ve loved my other recommendations then she won’t disappoint.
