This week’s Topic: Best Girl in a Prom Dress Books
You see the covers everywhere: it’s a current trend for YA books to feature a gorgeous girl in an equally gorgeous prom dress on the cover. But which books are actually worth picking up?
Entwined by Heather Dixon
This is a lovely retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses that is full of Jane Austen-esque romance and chilling magic. I definitely recommend it for anyone who loves a sweet romance, and lots of sweet family moments.
Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter
Zombies. Hot guys. Magic. Snarky best friends. This series is a ridiculously fun romp, with some zombie madness thrown in. And lots of making out.
The Selection by Kiera Cass
I love these covers. Depending on how much you like romance, you may or may not like these books. It’s sort of like The Bachelor but set in a mildly dystopian world where the Bachelor is a Prince and the girl he chooses will be the next Queen. Just a warning, there’s a really annoying love triangle, but over all, this is a very entertaining series. With gorgeous covers.
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
This a great romance/fantasy (with a gorgeous cover) about the daughter of a general and a slave she buys for herself. The slave turns out to be more than she was expecting (of course) and things start getting very complicated (war’s a-brewing).
