bestselling books of 2014 thus far. Today in Critical Linking:

Personally I like the Divergent trilogy and just because a novel is YA doesn't mean that it doesn't deserve accolades. A well written book is a well written book regardless of genre.

The Boleyn Reckoning by Laura Anderson

If you are a fan of Philippa Gregory you will love The Boleyn Reckoning by Laura Anderson. Anderson takes a fascinating look at the lives of young Elizabeth, her brother King William and their friends Minuette and Dominic. It is a story of love, betrayal, honor, treason and redemption.
Minuette is an endearing character who is torn between the man she loves, Dominic, and their dear friend since childhood King William.. Unknown to the rest of the kingdom in the fact that Dominic and Minuette have secretly wed and their plans to tell William are curtailed when he falls deathly ill.Upon his recovery he has sworn his undying love for Minuette even though he must defy the French by calling off a previous betrothal. \
When their secret is revealed they must flee for their lives with help of their friends such as young Elizabeth who is patiently awaiting her turn at the thrown. The country is in an upheaval over the impending invasion of France and possibly Spain and yet William is consumed by the betrayal of his friends.
Can everyone finally make peace? Can William redeem himself from the monster he has become?
This is an excellent book that I finished at precisely midnight on the second day.

Cop Town by Karin Slaughter

Cop Town is a gritty, down and dirty look at what being a cop - let alone an unwanted female cop, in Atlanta during the 70's was like. Now don't get me wrong it doesn't dwell on the whole female thing and isn't a 'pitty me' book. The characters are realistic if not disturbing at times and the author doesn't hold back on the discrepancies between white male cops and their 'colored' counterparts as well as women.
When a cop killer continues to terrorize Atlanta the corrupt 'good ol' boys' are looking to pin it on anyone and scare all the local degenerates into giving up the perpetrator. When Maggie's brother Jimmy becomes a target she must buck the system and investigate for herself. Jimmy's story isn't adding up and someone is determined to kill him and silence witnesses. Along with the help of a brand-new recruit, Kate, Maggie must find out the truth before a false confession leads to tragedy and a killer gets away with murder.
Cop Town is one of those novels that you won't be able to put down and will leave you happy that you weren't a cop in the 70's.
