Ninja Jennifer's Top 3 Books of 2009

I am only doing the top 3 books because I can't remember all the books I read this past year and the ones I do remember where all mostly in the same series. I'm also in school, so I unfortunately don't have as much time to read as everybody else and I have a huge stack of books that I can't wait to read. Like Amy, some of mine didn't come out in 2009, but that's when I read them.

Top 3 Books of 2009

3. Truancy by Isamu Fukui

I just reviewed this book last month, so you can kind of read what I said on there. It was very good and there are awesome action scenes in it. I very much enjoyed and am planning to read Truancy: Origins to see how everything in the first book came about. The newest book in the series is called Truancy City and is set to come out sometime later. The progress of the book can actually be monitored on http://thetruancy.com/.

2. The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

This is the first book in the Heir Chronicles Trilogy. I read the entire trilogy this year, so you know it has to be awesome. I found out today by Ninja Sarah that this is Urban Fantasy and most of it takes place in the modern times but there are Warriors, Wizards, Enchanters, Seers, and Sorcerers.

Jack is a teenage warrior, but doesn’t know it yet. He has been taking “heart medicine” since he was a baby to shield his powers. After one day of forgetting to take it, things completely change. He must train to become a warrior because he is the warrior heir.

1. Evermore by Alyson Noël

Amy reviewed this on the blog and part of her review is actually posted on the Amazon page and in the newest book to the series Shadowland. Evermore is the first book in the Immortals series and probably the best one so far. I couldn’t put it down after I started reading it. It’s about a girl named Ever who moves in with her aunt after her entire family dies in a tragic car accident where she should have died too. After the accident, she becomes psychic and meets her soul mate, Damen, who happens to be an immortal.

This is a supernatural romance and it’s on the “Twilight” read-a-like list if any of you liked that book. This doesn’t have any vampires or werewolves though. The newest book in the series just came out this past November and the next one (Dark Flame) is coming out summer of this year.
