Monday's Muse~May's Reads

I was so immersed in my own world~literally as I worked on The First Dragonwatcher~that I only read one book last month. However, if I had known I'd only be able to read one book I would have absolutely picked this one. Under My Skin by Judith Graves was like a high speed chase, full of excitement and hot guys. It is a young adult paranormal book set in a world that could very well be our own. The main character, Eryn, is spunky without falling into the tired snarky, clique, which is not easy to pull off anymore. Aryn has a rawness to her that makes her feel very genuine and makes you want to cry and celebrate along with her. For those who enjoy a good love triangle there is one in here, only it is understated very nicely so it doesn't dominate the novel. Of course my favorite part was the non-stop action. Because of it I think this book will appeal to both guys and girls in YA. The ending absolutely left me wanting more, in a good way.

The ultimate question, would I buy a sequel to this book? Yes, I absolutely will. In fact, I'll probably re-read it while I'm waiting for said sequel!
