Follow Friday - If books were beads

Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.

Question: Happy Mardi Gras! If they were throwing the HOTTEST books off a Mardi Gras float -- what would you want to have them throw to you?

Depends what do you mean by hottest? Do you mean books that make me swoon/want to kissy-face with all the characters? Or do you mean books that I want to collect tons of and show off proudly (like you do the necklaces?)

Luckily I have an answer for both.
1. The October Daye books by Seanan McGuire - These are excellent Urban Fantasy books.  They have romance, but Toby is usually too busy solving crimes and saving lives to actually sit down and think about her feelings.  She's pretty badass that way.  However there is a character in these books that makes me swoon.  I just read the 6th in this series (these books actually get better with each addition) and that character played a very important role.
2. As far as books I want to collective in abundance, everything by Melina Marchetta. Yes I talk about my great love of her A LOT. But that's because she is my favorite author and does not have a weak novel.  Just think of all the people I could introduce to Melina Marchetta books if I had an abundance laying around to share?
