Book Recommendation for January 2018

Incarnate, by Jodi Meadows, is the first in a three book series. I found a list of 25 books online titled something like "Books to Cure Your Hunger Games Hangover." So I sent the list to my mom, and she bought all of them. I was overwhelmed, and busy, so I just put them all on my shelf and decided to wait to read any until I had some free time. About three months later, my husband and I went to the beach (on our anniversary) with his band. I looked through my new books and the cover of this book (below) just called to me. I started it the first day we were there, when he was busy with his band all day, and finished it a few hours later. I couldn't put it down. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys young adult literature, musical prose, and lots of excitement, mystery, and the sweetest romance.


Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.

Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are suspicious and afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?

Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life."
