Epic Recs: Introducing my partner in crime & December book!

So Amber @ Books of Amber recently wrote a post introducing Epic Recs which she and Judith @ Paperiot started. The slogan above explains it all. Through this book club, you and a friend force...err.. recommend books to each other... and you must read that book. By the end of the month you each make a post of the book you read, your thoughts and opinions, and also including next month's recs. 

I ALWAYS try to make myself pick up books that aren't part of my review list and I mostly do that through my books in a jar meme at my YouTube channel, however this book club isn't confined to the books I own, but to any book the recommender wants to recommend, and while that might sound scary at first, at least to me, I quite like this arrangement! 

Before we go ahead to the recommending, I should introduce the person who's doing this with me and that person is Mel at The Daily Prophecy. I have always loved Mel's blog and check it frequently and once I knew she was interested in doing this book club, I talked to her and voila! 

For the month of december, I recommended The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin because… I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH! This series is just so unbelievably good and I want her to meet Noah! (Though he's mine since I met him first and all). Mel recommended Daughter of the Forest which is a YA fantasy that is a favorite of hers. It is 500 pages, which is quite intimidating, but she said that I'll fly through this book so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that! I already got this book from the library so I can't wait to start it. The synopsis sounds fantastic and it reminds me a tiny bit of The Girl of Fire and Thorns so I'm all for it!
