As part of Hollywood Crush's Best YA Novel of 2012 poll, we've enlisted a handful of our favorite teen lit writers to weigh in on the tomes that touched them this year. Next up is Becca Fitzpatrick, author of the "Hush, Hush" series.
Readers of the "Hush, Hush" series often ask me for book recommendations—they're looking for a story that has the same sexy, suspenseful vibe as my books, and when I read "Poison Princess" by Kresley Cole, I knew right away that it would appeal to fans. The romance between Jackson and Evie broils as hot as the small-town Louisiana setting. Jackson's complex, roguish character is certain to keep readers guessing—can we trust him? He's a bayou bad boy with a trail of dark secrets, after all. If you're going to read "Poison Princess" after dark, do yourself a favor and check the door locks first.
