The One with Allie

Hello! Today I'd like to welcome Allie to Mab is Mab! Allie blogs at Little Birdie Books and you can find her on Twitter @allie_LBB

Here are Allie's picks for "The One"!

The One you always recommend:

The Raven Boys The book is gold dust to me. It has something for everyone and is a great abomination of fantasy, action, comedy, romance, thriller, horror and ALL THE THINGS. Plus it brings the feels. And, really, I can say with complete honesty that I have never before (or since) read a book with such fantastically crafted and developed characters.

The One that was a gift:

Ender's Game – my brother gave this to me. We did a sci-fi book swap thing and, since this is his favourite sci-fi book, he chucked it my way (not literally, of course).

The One that got away:

I have never read a David Levithan, so basically anything he's ever done has got away from me! I plan to rectify this soon as everyone is always going on about how fantastic he is and I feel like the kid who didn't get invited to the party.

The One that makes you cry:

I really don't tend to cry at books (I'm a heartless woman, I know). But a book that really did get me quite distressed was Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock. That was heart-shattering, my friends.

The One that still haunts you:

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. For so many reasons (though incest and horribly depressing events are the top two).

The One you always go back to:

The Fault in Our Stars. It's funny and sad and sweet and just perfect. It's my snuggle-up-to book

Thanks Allie! The Fault In Our Stars is absolutely wonderful - though can't believe it wasn't a cry-er haha!
