Teen Book Scene: Songbird-Dani's Book Picks

Since you guys know my opinion about Songbird, I think it's time we find out what books main character Dani Mays is interested in...

Dani's Book Picks
Dani is a romantic at heart and, despite everything she's been through, she holds onto the idea that love is worth any pain that can come of it. Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver and Linger, and Wake by Lisa McMann are some of Dani's favorite paranormal romances.

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli is also on her shelf after reading it in middle school. It has such an amazing message about accepting the differences in people. Stargirl is just one of those characters that Dani wishes she could be like, so carefree and open.

She also really enjoyed The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. Normally she's not interested in fantasy, but after watching the movies she couldn't not read them.
One book that holds a special place in Dani's heart is Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. And no it's not because Reece is always throwing the line at her. It's the one book Dani can remember her mom and Jace reading her when she was little.
About the author: Angela Fristoe is a debut novelist with Little Prince Publishing and is gearing up for the release of her first YA Romance, Songbird. She was the winner, and double finalist, in the Romance category of The Strongest Start Contest 2010 hosted by The Next Big Writer. When not writing, she teaches and spends time with her family.

Seeing as how my post is the last in the tour, I'd like to say thank you to Angela and The {Teen} Book Scene!
