Book Geek Wednesday: What Are You Looking For?

Lately, I’ve had the hankering for a really great book. Something YA with a little intensity, a great romantic story with chemistry that leaps off the page and a storyline that feels fresh and interesting. Am I asking for much? Maybe. But though I’ve enjoyed the last few books I’ve read, I haven’t ‘clicked’ with one the way I’d like. That instant, unforgettable attraction.

I have The Queen of Atollia in queue,  as I love the political intrigue of those books, but I am in the mood for something a bit more magical and romantic. I’m enjoying E. Grace Diehl’s Kinlea Keeper, but it feels a little young, like the fairy tales I might have read as a child, which is not quite what I’m looking for.

Overall, I’m at a loss.

Does anyone have any book suggestions that have recently blown them away? I’d love to hear anything in the realm of YA fantasy, steampunk, historical, or scifi. Leave your  suggestions below!
