Guest Post: Mia Hoddell

Today we are happy to host author Mia Hoddell as part of her Deadly to Love blog tour.  Welcome to I'd So Rather Be Reading, Mia!

Top Ten Favourite Books
1. Ringmaster – Julia Golding.  
It's full of action and even though Darcie is a teen spy it’s realistic as Golding doesn’t use fancy gadgets that will get her out of any situation. I loved the S.A.S soldiers in the book as well, their sense of humour was great.

2. Dragonfly – Julia GoldingI loved Julia Golding’s use of the senses in this book, everything was so vivid when I imagined it and the relationships in the book were great. I’ve lost count on how many times I have re-read this novel. 

3. Skulduggery Pleasant Series– Derek Landy
I just love Derek Landy’s writing, even his acknowledgements are filled with witty, humourous comments that make me laugh. I love his characters, the storylines are great but my favourite part is definitely his style of writing, I can’t help but laugh while reading it.

4. Blood Bound – Rachel Vincent
I enjoyed the action in this book, I could visualise it clearly and the strong female lead, Liv, was easy to relate to. As well as this I liked the fact that different paranormal skills were used rather than vampires/werewolves.

5.  Hush Hush – Becca Fitzpatrick
This was the first angel book I ever read and now I am hooked on them.

6. Blood Ransom – Sophie McKenzie
This book was filled with action and tugs on your emotions. The characters were easy to relate to and I liked that McKenzie kept the science to a minimum so the book was easy to understand.

7. Diamond of Dury Lane (Cat Royal series) – Julia Golding
This was the first book I ever read without being forced to. I loved it and because it is what got me hooked on books I have to put it on the list. The main character is quick witted and humourous and the storylines are original and interesting.

8. The Host – Stephanie Meyer
I read this after Twilight and loved it much more. I prefer the characters and the storyline in my opinion is considerably better.

9.  Girl Missing – Sophie McKenzie
This book kept me hooked all the way through as it was action packed and unpredictable.

10. Kissed by an Angel –  Elizabeth Chandler
I liked the mystery in this novel, it keeps you guessing all the way to the end. Likewise, all of Elizabeth Chandler’s books do the same and her murder mysteries kept me awake at night.

Thanks to Kelli for hosting me on her amazing blog and remember to check out Deadly to Love and the rest of the tour stops here!

About the AuthorMia Hoddell lives in the UK with her family and two cats. She spends most of her time writing or reading and her preferred genre is Young Adult, Paranormal Romance. Before 2009, Mia wouldn't even pick up a book and was more interested in sports. However she finally found some novels that captured her interest and developed a love of both reading and writing. Mia began with poems and after getting two published in separate anthologies she moved on to short stories. Although she enjoyed this, Mia found she had too much to tell with too little space, so later on she created her first series The Wanderer Trilogy and from there other ideas have emerged which she hopes to turn into novels as well. Elemental Killers is her second series and book two will be out soon.
