Waiting On Wednesdays

Book: The Betrayal Of Maggie Blair by Elizabeth Laird

Release date: April 18, 2011 from Houghton Mifflin

In seventeenth-century Scotland, saying the wrong thing can lead to banishment - or worse. Accused of being a witch, sixteen-year-old Maggie Blair is sentenced to be hanged. She escapes, but instead of finding shelter with her principled, patriotic uncle, she brings disaster to his door. Betrayed by one of her own accusers, Maggie must try to save her uncle and his family from the King's men, even if she has to risk her own life in the process.

I think the cover of this book is just beautiful!!

Waiting On Wednesday!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and its purpose is to spotlight those titles we can't wait for!

This week my Waiting On Wednesday is:

Wither by Lauren Destefano
Release Date: March 2011

"Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.

When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.

But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant she trusts, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left."

I really want to read this!!!

WOW is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine

Book: Ripple
Author: Mandy Hubbard
Release date: August 2011
Eighteen year old Lexi is cursed--by day, she's just like every other teen at Lincoln CIty High. But from dusk until dawn, she's forced to swim and sing, a modern day siren. At sixteen, her voice became a deadly lure, and Steven-- the only boy she's ever loved-- followed her straight into the story surf and drowned.

Now, Lexi spends her nights at a forgotten lake up in the mountains, where she can swim and sing in peace. She's become an ice queen, forced to keep everyone around her at arm's length in order to protect them.

That is, until Cole comes to town. Cole, with his dark good looks and prying questions. She can't seem to keep him away, and she's no longer sure she wants to. But how can she let him in when it can only end in his death?

Review: Mockingjay

by Suzanne Collins


Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans -- except Katniss.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay -- no matter what the personal cost.

My Thoughts:

This book was awesome; it kept me at the edge of my seat. I loved the writing style of this book because Suzanne does an amazing job when she finishes a chapter. She always ends every chapter with a twist in the story or a cliffhanger. That last statement at the end of each chapter makes you feel the need to turn the page!

(Ok here is where the spoilers begin!)

Mockingjay was such an emotional rollercoaster. There were moments that I was hopping out of my chair so excited, and then there were the moments were I was so depressed for these characters. The biggest shock to me (ok there were two) was when Peeta was about to kill Katniss. I was out of my chair yelling at him! Another moment that really shocked me was when Prim died. I almost cried (well not really) but I really stared at the page and reread that part. It was such a sad moment and I kept expecting her to come back at any moment. I think the best moment of the entire book was the ending! I knew that she would end up with Peeta!!!! (*giggle*). I loved the Epilogue! This book could not have ended in a better way! Yay for true love!!!

This book is packed with tons of action. At times I will admit that I wished the action would end and that more romance would take its place. Gale was in the book too much. During most of the first third of the book, when Peeta had not been rescued, Gale was there with Katniss and I didn’t like that. I was afraid she was going to fall for him (yeah I know that wouldn’t happen, but still Gale isn’t a bad guy).

There are a lot of new additions to characters in this book. I would recommend that you if you haven’t looked over Catching Fire before reading Mockingjay you should. I had forgotten who was who and what they had done. I really liked how each character is so unique and plays their part in the story. I still hold the idea that Katniss is my favorite female character ever . She is just a really cool character that is so independent and strong.

I really did like this book, but after reading the whole series, I am going to say that the Hunger Games was my favorite out of all of them. I just loved that book!

Rating: 5/5

So what did you think of Mockingjay!?

Review- Thirst No. 1

Thirst No. 1 by Christopher Pike
624 pages

As to blood --
ah, blood, the whole subject fascinates me. I do like that as well, warm and dripping, when I am thirsty. And I am often thirsty....

Alisa has been in control of her urges for the five thousand years she has been a vampire. She feeds but does not kill, and she lives her life on the fringe to maintain her secret. But when her creator returns to hunt her, she must break her own rules in order to survive.

Her quest leads her to Ray. He is the only person who can help her; he also has every reason to fear her. Alisa must get closer to him to ensure her immortality. But as she begins to fall in love with Ray, suddenly there is more at stake than her own life....

My Thoughts:

There are three different sections in the book, and I really liked that they were all sort of connected to each other. The time gap between the sections was very reasonable and I can see why the author did that.

This book is much more than a book about vampires, there is a lot of action and it can get a little gruesome.

This book was written in a way that is very easy to read. This is a very fast pace book, but it is easy to understand. I really enjoyed reading about the past life of the main character.

I really did like the main character Sita. She is a very old and strong vampire. She has been roaming the Earth for centuries, but she still values what is important to her and what she believes in. Sita isn’t a maiden in distress who is just sitting around waiting for some hero to rescue her. She is probably stronger than anyone who could try to save her. She can be a destruction machine, but she is also capable of loving deeply. Her emotions and actions were things that I could understand. I really loved how powerful she was!

Something I didn’t particularly like about her was that she was a very bold person, but I learned to accept it because I can see why she has become that way after so many years of existing. I wasn’t too fond of Ray either. The male characters in this book seemed a little unrealistic to me. They all fell for Sita too soon and took her in too quickly.

Also, I didn’t like that once you started to like a character, they would be gone before you really got to know them.

But everything changes when three angels are sent from heaven to protect the town against the gathering forces of darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. They work hard to conceal their true identity and, most of all, their wings. But the mission is threatened when the youngest angel, Bethany, is sent to high school and falls in love with the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. Will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realize they are not the only supernatural power in Venus Cove. There′s a new kid in town and he′s charming, seductive and deadly. Worst of all, he′s after Beth.

Author: William Shakespeare, Claudia Gabel

Summary: "You are deluded, Romeo. Vampires do not have the capability to love. They are heartless."

The Capulets and the Montagues have so...more "You are deluded, Romeo. Vampires do not have the capability to love. They are heartless."

The Capulets and the Montagues have some deep and essential differences. Blood differences. Of course, the Capulets can escape their vampire fate, and the Montagues can try not to kill their undead enemies. But at the end of the day, their blood feud is unstoppable. So it's really quite a problem when Juliet, a vampire-to-be, and Romeo, the human who should be hunting her, fall desperately in love. What they don't realize is how deadly their love will turn out to be—or what it will mean for their afterlives. . . .

Simone Elkeles has announced the 3rd book in the Perfect Chemistry Series: Chain Reaction! It will be coming out in Spring 2011! How exciting!

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

When fifteen-year-old Krystal Bentley moves to Lincoln, Connecticut, her mom's hometown, she assumes her biggest drama will be adjusting to the burbs after living in New York City.
But Lincoln is nothing like Krystal imagined. The weirdness begins when Ricky Watson starts confiding in her. He's cute, funny, a good listener—and everything she'd ever want—except that he was killed nearly a year ago. Krystal's ghost-whispering talents soon lead other "freaks" to her door—Sasha, a rich girl who can literally disappear, and Jake, who moves objects with his mind. All three share a distinctive birthmark in the shape of an M and, fittingly, call themselves the Mystyx. They set out to learn what really happened to Ricky, only to realize that they aren't the only ones with mysterious powers. But if Krystal succeeds in finding out the truth about Ricky's death, will she lose him for good?

Favorite Book Cover

Weekly I will be posting a book cover that I happen to come across and that I thought was really cool. It is very sad but I am a cover judger! These books will be ones that couught my attention. This week it is:

Entwined by Heather Dixon

Description: Confined to their dreary castle while mourning their mother's death, Princess Azalea and her eleven sisters join The Keeper, who is trapped in a magic passageway, in a nightly dance that soon becomes nightmarish.

Isn't it beautiful!? I love it!!

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a feature for bloggers to swoon over upcoming releases they can't wait to get their hands on.


Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The further Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim bloodline has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

My thoughts:
I really enjoyed reading Hush, Hush. I also love the cover of these books! I mean wow they are awesome!! The plot for Hush, Hush was very good so I'm thinking this book will be very good too! I am REALLY excited to read this book!! :)

The sequel to the New York Times bestselling phenomenon, HUSH, HUSH! In stores everywhere October 19, 2010.

Review- Stargazer

Stargazer by Claudia Gray

Reading level: Young Adult

Hardcover: 336 pages

The vampire in me was closer to the surface . . .

Bianca, born to two vampires, has always been told her destiny is to become one. But she has fallen in love with Lucas, a vampire hunter who infiltrated Evernight Academy, the exclusive vampire boarding school she attends. Bianca will do anything to be with Lucas, even if it means lying to the powerful vampires of Evernight.

Her deceit leads her to dig deep into the mysteries of the school, and Bianca discovers that even those she trusts the most have their own dark secrets. When a ghostly force begins attacking Evernight—and targeting Bianca—she learns a shocking truth about her past that will forever change her future.

My Thoughts:
This book was pretty good. I will say that I liked Evernight (the first book in the series) more. I was not expecting for a book about vampires to have ghosts. I don't think the problem didn't evolved more in this book like it should have. I still like the characters but am now torn between Lucas and Balthazar!! Over all it was a good story and I would recommend it :)

How Would You Like to Win Some ARCS? I've Got 7

So, I have a few ARCs....

Um, a lot, actually.

I was going to hang on to them until I made 500 blog friends, but after some complaints that I've been teasing you with my reviews for ARCs that won't be out for a while, I thought maybe it was time to just hold a contest already. Why wait on arbitrary milestones, yeah? So here you go! I have 7 gorgeous ARCs for you.

Note that MATCHED is signed. I know, right? I wanted to keep it for myself (OMG, it's SIGNED!), especially because Ally was one of the nicest authors I've ever met, and like the other books in this pile, I was blown away by it. But I believe in small acts of mercy, random acts of kindness...that bit. Seriously. Why hog something so beautiful to myself? That goes for all the ARCs here.

The only thing I ask with these ARCs? If you win, be sure to give them a review, okay? Authors really want to know what you think of their books--especially if you love a book, make sure you let others know. It's a tough business, folks. Authors have to do a lot of marketing themselves now. And when your time comes, you'll want others to do the same for you. Plus, that's the point of an ARC--to spread the word about an upcoming release. Goodreads is a great place to start. I'll be writing up a review for every one of these books shortly. But just so you know, every single one of them is amazing.

Books I Wanna Read

Weekly I will be posting a book that I want to read. Tell me what you think about that book if you have read it!

Wake By: Lisa McMann

Title: Wake
Author: Lisa McMann
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Number of Pages: 210
Date of Release: 2008
Synopsis From Back of Book:


For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people’s dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie’s seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.

She can’t tell anybody about what she does-they’d never believe her, or worse, they’d think she’s a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn’t want and can’t control.

Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else’s twisted psyche. She is a participant. . . .
