100 Books in 2012: Book 44 "The Forever Girl"

I follow Rebecca Hamilton on Twitter, which is how I first heard of this paranormal YA novel.

Sophia has returned to her small Colorado town after college, but she doesn't really want to be there.  Her mother's church is openly intolerant to her Wiccan faith, and because she witnessed a murder years ago, the rest of the town doesn't quite trust her.  But all of that pales in comparison to the supernatural mess she finds herself in after accompanying her best friend, Ivory, to a paranormal club.

Earth elementals (vampires) begin hunting her, and Sophia must learn the secrets of her soul if she wants to survive.  Caught up in a complicated relationship with the magical mixed breed Charles, Sophia doesn't know who to trust.  Ultimately, her greatest strength lies within, but will she discover this before it's too late for the mortal world?

This was a fast read reminiscent of Twilight.  The world building is intricate, if a bit rushed, and the story never lags.  If you are a fan of any urban paranormal, check out this book!

I didn't do as much reading on vacation as I'd hoped, but now that I'm home, I intend to make up for it.  What are you reading on this glorious Sunday?
