Before you vote though, here are some highlights from the nomination list.
The Eye of Minds by James Dashner is the first in the Mortality Doctrine series. This is the ultimate book about gaming, where the players can literally step into the world created by the game and experience the action without facing the consequences. The only problem is that one gamer has found a way to hold other players hostage inside the game, and he must be stopped.
Imagine a world where travel involves stepping through a portal. That's the world that Earth Girl by Janet Edwards gives us. This new mode of travel has opened up colonization of other worlds, and Earth has become the home of the "handicapped". Jarra is our main character and she resides on Earth because her body reacts allergically to portal travel. She has grown up being told that she is handicapped, but she is determined to prove to the world that she is just like everyone else and that her handicap does not exist. This book does a great job of moving the reader to see value in others as well as themselves. I highly recommend this one.
Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards is near the top of my recommended book list from what I have read this year. This is a psychological thriller as Chloe loses six months of her life and wakes up to find that she lived it, but does not remember it. Those lost six months have totally changed her world, including losing her best friend and gaining a boyfriend that she thought was out of her league. This one will definitely keep you reading.
Rick Yancey has created a world where you are only safe if you are alone. The 5th Wave sees the world, as we know it, being taken over in stages. The first stage was when the lights went out. That brought permanent change, but it could still be explained. What other changes were coming that were harder to explain? Was the end just around the corner?
There are 25 books on the nomination list. I hope you enjoy reading some of them and then taking the opportunity to vote for your favorites.
