Hot pick for 2011.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Seventeen-year-old Karou, an art student in Prague, carries a sketchbook of hideous chimaerae who form the only family she has ever known.  When hamsome Akiva fixes his eyes on her, secrets are unveiled and the star-crossed couple will face the ultimate battle to be together all while Karou learns the truth about herself.
