Review: Need by Carrie Jones

February 7, 2010

I found an ARC of Need in the pile at Schuler and after reading the description, I immediately tucked it under my arm. There was no way I was letting it out of my sight, especially since the back also said, “Now fans of Stephenie Meyer and Melissa Marr have a new author to devour…” I went home and wasted no time in starting it. A few hours later, I finished and was left wanting more.

Need was one of the first books I reviewed and I feel so honored to have been able to do so. When people ask me for book suggestions, Need is always the first title I mention. Carrie Jones knows how to balance action, romance, and comedy in order to create an engaging and wonderful novel. The characters are extremely believable and I quickly fell in love with them all. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I will say that the romance is my favorite part of the novel. For those of you not too keen on romances, fear not because there’s plenty of suspense and action to keep your interest.

If you haven’t read Need yet, drop what you’re doing and go find a copy. I’m not kidding; this is an amazing novel. If you’ve already read it, then make sure to read the sequel, Captivate.

    I agree! I enjoyed Need, but with so much to do I haven’t been able to get my hands on Captivate! One of my favorite aspects of Zara’s character was her habit of listing phobias to calm herself down. 🙂
