I love books! I also write them. FYI: I use this space for recs of books I wholeheartedly love only. My recs are honest, but I have social relationships with some of the romance authors whose books I rec. 

The Demon's Surrender - Sarah Rees Brennan I love these books so much. I love every single character. And I LOVED seeing Alan get to be...not the role he plays in the other books of geeky, shy older brother with a badass side, but the complete person that he is behind the role, and seeing someone understand that it's real, but it's also a role. I'm not saying it well, but I love stories about the roles people play in their everyday life, and the ways those roles are and aren't true, and the power they have to shape relationships even when they aren't true or aren't completely true or started out not being true, and the ways people can both trade on them consciously and secretly believe them. And Alan and Sin are both more than average conscious of the roles they take on, so I was swooning over this book. I want a sequel where they go on a road trip and grift their way across England! I want to see them hustle pool and run short cons! I want them to act like "the sexy dancer and her nerdy boyfriend" at restaurants and then go back to their motel room and laugh and probably give each other presents they bought with the take-home pay of the unwary! I could go on, but you get the idea.
