2011 Mundie Moms Favorites: '11 Debs/Stand-Alones

It's day 3 of our 2011 MM Favorites, and today I'm posting our favorite debs/stand-alones, as there were some great stand-alones released this year. Often times I think stand-alones get over shadowed by the bigger and newer series that are being release. Not that I don't love a good series, because I do, but I also adore stand-alones just as much. Here's our list of this year's top 11 favorite Debs/Stand-Alones. This list is no order and features books we rated 4.5-5 stars. Each book is linked back to our review on the blog.

  1. Between The Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
  2. Near Witch by Victoria Schwab
  3. Entwined by Heather Dixon
  4. The Apothecary by Maile Meloy
  5. Warped by Maurissa Guibord
  6. Moonglass by Jessi Kirby
  7. Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez
  8. Shifting by Bethany Wiggins
  9. Destined by Jessi Harrell
  10. Forgotten by Cat Patrick
  11. The False Princess by Eilis O'Neal
** Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris (just kidding, we had this one listed here, but found out after posting this that there is going to be a sequel).

If you haven't already, I highly recommend picking up these books. You can read our complete list of 2011 MM Favorites here. What are some of your favorite debs and stand-alones from this year?

Merry Christmas Shadow Hunter Style

I saw this lovely artwork via Cassie's tumblr this morning and I couldn't help but share it. I LOVE this! Seriously, there are some very talented TMI and ID fans who's artwork I just want to sit and stare at. I really love this piece, which was done for Cassie for Christmas. You can find it here on deviant art. Who wouldn't love spending Christmas under the mistletoe with Will or Jace. LOL I hope you guys have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season!

Mundane Monday #115- Jace & Clary

Happy Mundane Monday!! I hope you are all having a wonderful Holiday season. I can't believe this is the Monday before Christmas. WOW this month is flying by. Amid all of the last minute Holiday hustle and bustle, I hope you enjoy today's TMI teaser!

....... He let his fingers trail down her cheek to her lips, outlining the shape of her mouth with the tip of a finger. "You should probably," he said, "tell me not to do this."

She said nothing. She didn't want to tell him to sop. She was tired of saying no to Jace- of never letting herself feel what her whole heart wanted her to feel. Whatever the cost.

He bent down, his lips against her cheek, brushing it lightly- and still that light touch sent shivers through her nerves, shivers that made her whole body tremble. "If you want me to stop, tell me now," he whispered. When she still said nothing, he brushed his mouth against the hollow of her temple. "Or now." He traced the line of her cheekbone. "Or now." He lips were against hers. "Or-"

Bet she had reached up and pulled him down to her, and the rest of his words were lost against her mouth. .....
