1. Gaiman, Neil- The graveyard: Baby Nobody escapes to the graveyard as a man named Jack murders his parents & siblings. The spirits protect and raise Nobody away from Jack, who must finish murderous contract. I appreciate the few gruesome scenes as I rooted for Nobody to escape Jack's clutches
2. Fitzpatrick, Becca-Hush, hush : Initially, Nora fights her attraction to her Biology lab partner Patch. As she spends more time with him, terrifying events begin occurring. Yet, she becomes more drawn to him at the same time. I find myself drawn into the intense forbidden love story. I will read the remaining books when an opportunity arises.
3. McCann, Lisa-Wake-Janie has battled with nightmares which she has done her best to keep from others throughout her childhood. Now, her dreams are becoming more real, dangerous, and impossible to hide. I remained glued to this action packed tale. Janie's abilities become even more important throughout the Wake trilogy.
4. Mead, Richelle-Vampire academy series- As Rose Hathaway prepares to become her best friend Moroi Princess Lisa's protector at Vampire Academy, she confronts danger and forbidden love throughout her journey. I admired Rose's spirit as she matures through her struggles during the six part account.
