Jennavier Recommends: Unspoken and Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan

So I would normally wait for the last book to recommend a YA trilogy. I’ve been burned way too many times! But these two are so fantastic that it’s worth the risk. Trust me on this.
Unspoken sets up the characters and the world. As it should, since it the first book in a series and all. Kami Glass is our intrepid girl reporter that is determined to discover a story in her sleepy little town. Little does she know that the story is coming her way. The voice that she always thought was her imaginary friend really belongs to the new guy in school. But it gets weirder then that. Magic might be real, and her town might be at the heart of it. The previous cover was so much cuter. The publishers didn't agree with me so we're stuck with this one.

What makes these stories so awesome is the characters. Kami is smart and brave and more then a little ridiculous. I laughed out loud at some of the things she has to say. Jared, her mysterious voice who is no longer mysterious, is difficult in a way that makes me want to smack him and hug him. The supporting cast are so perfect that I can tell you about each one of them even now, a month after reading it. I have never checked the publication date as often as I did for Untold. Now I have to wait for book three and it’s already killing me. So go, read the books, and share my pain. Till next time!

***Update: Book three, Unmade, came out and it is amazing! Brennan absolutely landed the ending of this trilogy. If you were on the fence before, I hope now that they're all out you'll hop off and run to the nearest bookstore.

  1. I'll have to check them out :) But I'll probably wait until the third one is out, since I can't handle the waiting!
