REVIEW: Need by Carrie Jones



Description

Now fans of Stephenie Meyer and Melissa Marr have a new author to devour . . .
Zara collects phobias the way other high school girls collect lipsticks. Little wonder, since life’s been pretty rough so far. Her father left, her stepfather just died, and her mother’s pretty much checked out. Now Zara’s living with her grandmother in sleepy, cold Maine so that she stays “safe.” Zara doesn’t think she’s in danger; she thinks her mother can’t deal.
Wrong. Turns out that guy she sees everywhere, the one leaving trails of gold glitter, isn’t a figment of her imagination. He’s a pixie—and not the cute, lovable kind with wings. He’s the kind who has dreadful, uncontrollable needs. And he’s trailing Zara.
With suspense, romance, and paranormal themes, this exciting breakout novel has all the elements to keep teens rapidly turning the pages.

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT
The story took awhile to get to, but then it was a page turner. I really think that this one needs a sequel! Nicely combines pixies/faries and werebeasts into a cute romance. If you enjoyed Tithe, you will like this, although not as dark. 

Since I just finished Entice, the third in the series I will give away my read - once copy!

  5. Carrie Jones' About Me section on her website was super funny! An interesting fact is she has one skinny white dog and one fat cat, both of which love fudgesicles.

  24. Thanks for the chance to win. I've heard great things about this book.

    I found out that Carrie cannot have caffeine because it makes her insane. I love that fact because I'm the opposite, my favorite drinks are all caffeinated.
