Impromptu Read-a-thon

So, April at Good Books and Wine is hosting an impromptu read-a-thon this weekend. I decided since I don't have any plans this weekend, I can jump on and so this. I do need to catch up. Hopefully I'll read about six books or so, or maybe more, but I never reach my goals with these things, so I'm not setting my goals too high. 
I'll let you know at the end of the weekend, I'll do a post about everything I've read. 
To sign up of for more info, go here. 

Anyone else doing this?

Waiting on Wednesday: Kiss Crush Collide

Kiss Crush Collide
Kiss Crush Collide by Christina Meredith
December 27, 2011

Leah has the life most high school girls would kill for—popularity, glowing grades, a rich, athletic boyfriend. So why does she feel like she can’t breathe? And why can’t she stop thinking about the boy from the country club? The one who isn’t her boyfriend, the one that her mother would never, ever approve of, the one that her perfect older sisters would never, ever look at twice. The one who is always looking back at her. Irresistible attraction, smoldering glances, the bad boy and the good girl—Kiss Crush Collide has everything that a steamy forbidden romance should, and then some.

With graceful and honest writing and an electric love story, this is a book about growing into your own skin. For fans of Perfect Chemistry, Sarah Dessen, and John Green.

I, personally think this book sounds amazing. If it's anything like Perfect Chemistry or Sarah Dessen's books, I'm sure I'll love it.

Top Ten Tuesday (5): Books I want to Reread

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. For more information, go here.

This week is Top Ten Books I Want to Reread

  1. Anna and the French Kiss- I am one of the many who loved this book. I do not own it, though I wish I did. Since it's in paperback, though, I should get on that. 
  2. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour- I also loved this one. I would love to reread it, and this is another that I need to buy now that it's in paperback.
  3. Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles- This one is kind of  a joke, since I reread it all the time. But it's been a while, so I'm thinking I should reread it again.
  4. The Adoration of Jenna Fox- I remember really liking this one a few years ago, and I just got the second, so I' thinking I should reread this one.
  5. Fire by Kristin Cashore- I recently have reread Graceling, so now I'm wanting to reread Fire.
  6. The Luxe series- I loved this series, and I would love to go back and reread a book or two in it, or maybe the whole thing. 
  7. The Nature of Jade- Absolutely loved this book. One of my favorites. It's been a couple years since I read it, so I need to read it again.
  8. The Dark Divien/The Lost Saint- one of my favorite series. And since the third one has been pushed back until March, I'm going to need something to help tie me over.
  9. Delirium by Lauren Oliver- It's been about a year since i read this one, and with the next coming up next year, I should probably read this again.
  10. Angelfire- One of my favorites of this year. I loved it, and would really like to experience it again. 
Would books do you want to reread?

Review: There You'll Find Me

There You'll Find Me

There You'll Find Me
Jennie B. Jones
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: October 4, 2011

In a small cottage house in rural Ireland, Finley discovers she can no longer outrun the past.
When Finley travels to Ireland as a foreign exchange student, she hopes to create a new identity and get some answers from the God who took her brother away and seems to have left her high and dry.
But from the moment she boards the plane and sits by Beckett Rush, teen star of the hottest vampire flicks, nothing goes according to Finley's plan.
When she gets too close to Beckett, a classmate goes on a mission to make sure Finley packs her bags, departs Ireland-and leaves Beckett alone.
Finley feels the pressure all around. As things start to fall apart, she begins to rely on a not-so-healthy method of taking control of her life.
Finley tries to balance it all-disasters on the set of Beckett's new movie, the demands of school, and her growing romance with one actor who is not what he seems. Yet Finley is also not who she portrays to Beckett and her friends.
For the first time in her life, Finley must get honest with herself to get right with God.

This book was a nice surprise for me. I loved it. Before I read it, I thought it looked good, but I didn't think I'd enjoy it this much. 

I really liked the characters in this book. Finley was heartbroken and trying to figure out her life. The only think was that in the past, Finley was supposed to be a party girl, but I just can't see it. She's way too high strung. And I liked Beckett. There was so much to him.

I loved the setting in this book. Ireland is a close second to Top Places in the World I Want to Visit, right behind Italy. I only wish the book had a bigger focus on the setting, because it would have been beautiful. 

This book does not have much buzz behind it, but that definitely does not mean it's not as good. 

This book brought up a lot of emotions. There were times I laughed. There were also times I teared up a little. 

I really liked this book, more than I thought I would. It's one of the better books I've read in a while. I'm looking forward to more by Jenny.

In My Mailbox (72)

We have Kristi at The Story Siren to thank for hosting IMM every week. 

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
They had a copy at Barnes and Noble, so I got it a couple of days early. 

As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott

What did you get this week?

Mini Challange Catch Up

So, I'm here to do some mini challenges. There's three that I need to do, but instead of bombarding y'all with a bunch of posts, I'm just going to do one to make it easier on me, and less annoying for you. 
Here we go.

One True Pairings:
Hosted by Jennie at My Cute Bookshelf.
Here's how it works:
  • You should create a blog post with your OTP (One True Pairing), meaning your favorite couple from young adult books. Explain why they’re your favorite YA couple. If you don't have a blog, you can share your answer in the comments section.
  • To make it fun, add pictures of who you think can portray the characters. 
Here's mine:
The Dark Divine (The Dark Divine, #1)
Daniel and Grace from The Dark Divine

I am in love with this series, and in love with the characters. I think Grace and Daniel are perfect together. And after the last book, I need to read the next to see what happens next!

And I'm not going to put a picture of people because no one could play the Grace and Daniel in my head. 
But I will give you this:

For more information, go here. 

Scariest Word:
Hosted by The Nonrelcuctant Reader. 
Here's how it works

  • Grab a book you're currently reading (and hopefully loving)
  • Go to the 13th Chapter (if the book doesn't have 13 chapters, go to the closest to it)
  • Scan the chapter for the scariest word
  • Using Google/Yahoo images randomly pick on picture that comes up when you search the word
  • Write a blog post that has the book's cover, title, your word and your image
Here's mine:
Siren (Siren, #1)
Siren by Tricia Rayburn
Dead (page 170)
As you can imagine, there were some pretty disturbing images when you google dead. But here's one that won't scar you for life:

For more information, go here. 

Who Should Be a Couple:
Hosted by Cindy at Princess Bookie
Barney and Robin from How I Met Your Mother. They were a couple, but are not now. They may be in the future. I don't know. But I like them together. 
I like them together because out of everyone, they are the two least likely to be in a serious relationship, but yet, they were. And, plus, Barney is a pig, so he needs to find a girl to put him in his place. 

For more information about this mini challenge, go here.

So that's it. Be sure to go to those websites because they are giving away awesome prizes!

Review: Eve

Eve (Eve, #1)Eve
Anna Carey
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: October 4, 2011

The year is 2032, sixteen years after a deadly virus—and the vaccine intended to protect against it—wiped out most of the earth’s population. The night before eighteen-year-old Eve’s graduation from her all-girls school she discovers what really happens to new graduates, and the horrifying fate that awaits her.

Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust...and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.

I wasn't sure what to expect from Eve. I've heard mixed things about it, but mostly good things. Turns out, Eve was an enjoyable read. No my favorite dystopian novel, but it was good.

I enjoyed Eve, the character. She was so sure about her world, but then she found out what really happens. When she found out, she didn't dawdle or doubt, she hot the hell out of there, which I liked.

I also liked a lot of the secondary characters. Arden, Benny, Lark, Marjorie and Otis. It's just a lot of them came and went so fast that I wished I had more time with them. And of course, I loved Caleb.

This book was really short, especially for a dystopian. This isn't a bad thing. What was there was really good. But I wished there was a little.... more. More of the characters, more world building. But it was very fast paced and intriguing, which made me want to keep reading.

And of course it ended with a cliffhanger. I need to know what happens next!

Eve was enjoyable, but not entirely addicting. Dystopian fans will enjoy it.

Top Ten Tuesday (4): Books Everyone has Read but Me

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. For more information visit here.

This week is Top Ten Books I feel that everyone has read except me. Actually, most the books on my list aren't even out yet. And yet, I feel that everyone has had a chance to read them.

  1. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins- I think people have been getting ARCS since BEA, or maybe even before. And there are a lot of people who have already read this book. I'm not sure if I could name anyone who hasn't. I know, there are some people who have also not read this, but i just can't think of any.
  2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin- Pretty much everything I said for Lola goes for this one, too. Ugh, I love the cover so much!
  3. The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler- Ditto.
  4. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- I've been hearing such good things about this one, including that it may be one of the best books of 2011. I really want to read it!
  5. Bite Club by Rachel Caine- I just picked a random book in the series. I really enjoyed the first one, second was decent, and I couldn't get into the third. Will I continue this series? Maybe. Everyone seems to really like it. But not anytime soon.
  6. Shift by Jerri Smith-Ready- I guess I'm the only one, but I did not enjoy the first one that much. Everyone says the second is good, too. I keep thinking I should give it another try, but I can't bring myself to do it. 
  7. Supernaturally by Kirsten White- Pretty much everything I said about Shift is the same for this one. Paranormalcy was so highly talked about and rated, and I just couldn't get into it. Maybe I'm crazy. 
  8. Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey- This one has been on my shelf for forever. I just need to read it because I've heard amazing things about it. 
  9. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins- Same as Jessica's Guide
  10. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Septeys- I remember when this book first came out and everyone talked about how amazing it was. I need to read it. 
So, that's about it. Are there any books you feel everyone has read but you? let me know!

Charming Covers [17]

Charming Covers is a feature where I show some covers for upcoming books that have recently been revealed/ I've recently found.
Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
May 2012

One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

I loved Divergent.... So riveting, and I cannot wait to see what happens next. I need Insurgent now.
And I like this cover. I don't know if I like it better than Divergent, but I'm interested to see how the tree fits into the book and everything.

Top 5 Books for 2012

One of the mini challenge's for Princess Bookie's Contest Craze is doing a post about the top 5 books we are looking forward to for 2012. To sign up, go here

 In Honor
In Honor by Jessi Kirby
This one sounds so good. I haven't read Jessi's debut, Moonglass, yet, but I need to.

Wings of the Wicked (Angelfire, #2)
Wings of the Wicked by Courtney Allison Moulton
Angelfire was one of my favorites of 2011, so I'm absolutely dying for the sequel. 
The Calling (Darkness Rising, #2)
The Calling by Kelley Armstrong
I love Kelley and I'm excited to see what happens in this!
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
This one sounds so cute! And so far, I've been hearing nothing but good things about it. 

The Fine Art of Truth or Dare
The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen
Again, this one sounds so cute. It's described as a cross between Pretty in Pink and Anna and the French Kiss. How can it go wrong?

Why I love Kelley Armstrong

When asked who is my favorite answer, I am usually at a loss. There are so many amazing authors out there that I love. But, I have come to saying Kelley Armstrong. While I don't like to limit myself to one favorite author because there are so many great ones, Kelley Armstrong is definitely up there. And I'm here to tell you why.
There are so many reasons why I love her. Of course one of the reasons is because of her writing. I get so swept away with the world she has created. I've read both the adult Otherworld series, The Darkest Powers Trilogy, and The Gathering, which is the start of the  Darkest Rising Trilogy. I love them all.

But there is another reason why she is so amazing. She gets that readers get so into her books, so into the characters, that sometimes we need more than just the books, especially when we are waiting for the next book to come out. And she gives us that. She gives us extra stories with the characters and world while we are waiting. And I think this is pretty amazing. Sometimes you just need more.

To see the full list of free online stories for the Otherworld series, visit here. She has also published 2 anthologies for this series.

If you would like more Chloe, Derek, and the gang, she is in the middle of posting a short story for them here. So cute! She posts a new chapter on the 1st and 15th of every month.

There are also more short stories with the Darkest Powers characters, including how Derek and Simon came to the Lyle House.

There aren't many authors that gives us this much extra. A couple other authors who I know are good about his is Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely series) and Julie Kagawa (The Iron Fey Series).

So, thank you, Kelley, for giving us more than just what's needed.

Spread the Word (2)

Spread the Word is a feature that I came up with where I share some quotes that I like. 
I went ahead and put these quotes onto some pictures as well. 
Where do the quotes come from? I'll try to mix it up sometimes, but the quotes today are some of my favorite song quotes.

Charming Covers [16]

Charming Covers is a feature where I show some covers for upcoming books that have recently been revealed/ I've recently found.

 In Honor
In Honor by Jessi Kirby
May 8, 2012

Honor receives her brother's last letter from Iraq three days after learning that he died, and opens it the day his fellow Marines lay the flag over his casket. Its contents are a complete shock: concert tickets to see Kyra Kelly, her favorite pop star and Finn's celebrity crush. In his letter, he jokingly charged Honor with the task of telling Kyra Kelly that he was in love with her.

Grief-stricken and determined to grant Finn's last request, she rushes to leave immediately. But she only gets as far as the driveway before running into Rusty, Finn's best friend since third grade and his polar opposite. She hasn't seen him in ages, thanks to a falling out between the two guys, but Rusty is much the same as Honor remembers him: arrogant, stubborn. . . and ruggedly good looking. Neither one is what the other would ever look for in a road trip partner, but the two of them set off together, on a voyage that makes sense only because it doesn't. Along the way, they find small and sometimes surprising ways to ease their shared loss and honor Finn--but when shocking truths are revealed at the end of the road, will either of them be able to cope with the consequences?

This sounds like such a good contemporary. Very cute. 
I haven't read Jessi's debut Moonglass yet, but I want to and I've heard good things about it. 
And I love this cover. Even though it sounds like a sad book, the cover is still light, which makes me hope that this book is also uplifting.

Review: The Mephisto Covenant

The Mephisto Covenant (The Mephisto Covenant, #1)

The Mephisto Covenant
Trinity Faegen
Publisher: EgmontUSA
Release Date: September 27, 2011

Sasha is desperate to find out who murdered her father. When getting the answer means pledging her soul to Eryx, she unlocks a secret that puts her in grave danger—Sasha is Anabo, a daughter of Eve, and Eryx’s biggest threat.

A son of Hell, immortal, and bound to Earth forever, Jax looks for redemption in the Mephisto Covenant—God’s promise he will find peace in the love of an Anabo. After a thousand years, he’s finally found the girl he’s been searching for: Sasha.

With the threat of Eryx looming, Jax has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?

Before starting this book, I wasn't really sure what exactly it was about. The description says, but I was still a little confused about it. I'm not going to lie, a big part of why I read it was because of the pretty cover. But The Mephisto Covenant turned out to be one of the most interesting stories I've read in a while.

When I first started it, I was a little confused. The book jumps right into the story without much explaining. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. But it is explained as it goes along and I got really into it.

I really liked the main character, Sash. She was Anabo, and was supposed to be perfect. But she was still flawed. Which is a good thing. If felt real and helped me connect with her.

And the romance. Although Sasha and Jaz fell in love almost too quick, it didn't bother me as much as in other books. I actually enjoyed it after a while.

Overall, The Mephisto Covenant is a very interesting book. It was one that I didn't hink I'd enjoy as much when I read it. But I did.

Steampunk in Music?

So I was browsing through YouTube like I normally do and I came across the new Panic! At the Disco music video: The Ballad of Mona Lisa. My first thought was this: steampunk. Does anyone else see that in this video?

Steampunk is a growing genre, especially in YA and it's one that I really like. So I think it's pretty cool to see it outside of books, too. 

So that's it. That's what I wanted to share with you today.

Review: Always a Witch

Always a Witch (Witch, #2)Always a Witch
Carolyn MacCullough
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcour
Release Date: August 1, 2011

The adventures of Tam and Gabriel continue with more time travel, Talents, spy work, and of course, the evil Knights. 

Since the gripping conclusion of Once A Witch, Tamsin Greene has been haunted by her grandmother's prophecy that she will soon be forced to make a crucial decision—one so terrible that it could harm her family forever. When she discovers that her enemy, Alistair Knight, went back in time to Victorian-era New York in order to destroy her family, Tamsin is forced to follow him into the past. Stranded all alone in the nineteenth century, Tamsin soon finds herself disguised as a lady's maid in the terrifying mansion of the evil Knight family, avoiding the watchful eye of the vicious matron, La Spider, and fending off the advances of Liam Knight. As time runs out, both families square off in a thrilling display of magic. And to her horror, Tamsin finally understands the nature of her fateful choice.

Once a Witch was such a fun surprise for me. I wasn't expecting to like it so much, but I did. So of course I was looking forward to more adventures in Always a Witch.

And there was more adventures. Always a Witch, too, was full of magic, mischief and time traveling. Unfortunately, I didn't get into this book as I did Once a Witch.

The book jumps right into the story. The majority of this book is spend in the past. I both liked this and didn't. I would have liked to see more of the characters from the present. Also, it was a little slow right after Tam arrived in the past. But it quickly sped up.

I still really liked Tamsin. Even with her Talent, she still had a good heard on her shoulders. She was a little too independent at times, but that's okay.

I was a tad sad with the ending. I don't know if there will be another book or not, but I hope there will be. 

I love witches and magic, which it part of why I like these books so much. I didn't like Always a Witch as much as its predecessor, but it is still an enjoyable read.

Waiting on Wednesday: The Fine Art of Truth or Dare

The Fine Art of Truth or Dare
The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jenson
February 16, 2012

Pretty in Pink meets Anna and the French Kiss in this charming
romantic comedy

Ella is nearly invisible at the Willing School, and that’s just fine by her. She’s got her friends— the fabulous Frankie and their sweet cohort Sadie. She’s got her art— and her idol, the unappreciated 19th-century painter Edward Willing. Still, it’s hard being a nobody and having a crush on the biggest somebody in the school: Alex Bainbridge. Especially when he is your French tutor, and lessons have started becoming, well, certainly more interesting than French ever has been before. But can the invisible girl actually end up with a happily ever after with the golden boy, when no one even knows they’re dating? And is Ella going to dare to be that girl?

This looks so cute. And really? Could you go wrong with Anna and Pretty in Pink? I don't think so. I can't wait to get my hands on this one!

Top Ten Tuesday (3)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Bookish and Broke. To learn more visit here.

This week we are talking about the Top Ten Sequels I'm Dying to Read. I'm actually pretty excited about this one.

  1. Wings of the Wicked by Courtney Allison Moulton- Sequel to Angelfire. I absolutely loved Angelfire, probably one of my favorites of 2011. I need to read the sequel now!
  2. Hollowed by Cynthia Hand- Sequel to Unearthly. I really enjoyed Unearthly, and with and ending like this I can't wait to read Hallowed!
  3. Dreaming Awake by Gwen Hayes- Sequel to Falling Under. Falling Under was very interesting and I liked it. Can't wait to see what Dreaming Awake brings us. And can I just say that the cover is absolutely gorgeous! 
  4. Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter- Sequel to The Goddess Test. The Goddess Test was a nice surprise to me because I wasn't expecting to like it so much. But I did, and I can't wait to see more of these characters. 
  5. Fever by Lauren DeStefano- Sequel to Wither. Wither was absolutely wonderful. Again, with the huge cliffhanger! I need to know what happens next!
  6. The Calling by Kelley Armstrong- Sequel to The Gathering. I'm am such a huge fan of Kelley's. Not much happened in The Gathering until the last maybe 50 pages or so. I think that this book will actually pick up a bit. I'm really excited to see what Kelley has in store for us this time!
  7. A Million Suns by Beth Revis- Sequel to Across the Universe. I enjoyed Across the Universe, even though it wasn't my favorite. I'm still excited to see what happens next. 
  8. The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead- Sequel to Bloodlines. I think this one is pretty obvious. The reason I really can't wait to read this (besides the fact that it's Richelle and it's the VA world and it's just plain awesome) is because at the very end of the book, a character showed up and I can't wait to see more of him!
  9. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins- Sequel to Anna and the French Kiss. Again, this one is pretty obvious. 
  10. Last, but not least, The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting- Sequel to The Body Finder and Desires of the Dead. I really enjoy these books a lot, and I can't wait to see whats in store for Violet and Jay this time!
Well, I guess that's ten, even though I'm sure I could probably go on for a long time. 
What sequels are you most excited for?
