I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

Waiting on Wednesday (18):


Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Its about what books you just can't wait to get your hands on.





Everneath
Series: Everneath #1
by Brodi Ashton
Release Date: Jan. 24th, 2012


Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's... (Goodreads Description)



My Thoughts:

First off I am in love with this cover. The colors work great together, and the picture defiantly goes with the description of the book. Only drawback is I would like to see the girls face. On that note, I can't wait to read this book. The story is unique, and it sounds like an emotional rollercoaster of a ride. I want to see what fate she decides and who she chooses. Also how she got into her situation in the first place.





Halflings
Series: Halflings #1
by Heather Burch
Release Date: Feb. 1st, 2012

After being inexplicably targeted by an evil intent on harming her at any cost, seventeen-year-old Nikki finds herself under the watchful guardianship of three mysterious young men who call themselves halflings. Sworn to defend her, misfits Mace, Raven, and Vine battle to keep Nikki safe while hiding their deepest secret—and the wings that come with.

A growing attraction between Nikki and two of her protectors presents a whole other danger. While she risks a broken heart, Mace and Raven could lose everything, including their souls. As the mysteries behind the boys’ powers, as well as her role in a scientist’s dark plan, unfold, Nikki is faced with choices that will affect the future of an entire race of heavenly beings, as well as the precarious equilibrium of the earthly world. (Goodreads Description)



My Thoughts:

I love books about angels; some of my favorite are the Fallen series, and the Hush, Hush series. This one sounds different, but very good. I want to know more about why these men are protecting Nikki and what she has to do with their secret. Also I do love me some love triangles. I know a lot of people don't, but I feel that a little competition spices things up a bit. Can't wait to see what’s in store for the characters in this book.



What are you waiting for ? ? ?

Clockwork Prince
The Infernal Devices #2
by Cassandra Clare

Out Today ! ! ! ! !



In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa's powers for his own dark ends.

With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister's war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will; the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart. (Goodreads Description).


My Thoughts:

I have been waiting for this book forever, and I can finally get my very own copy today ! ! !  I will either be getting it at Barnes & Noble today or ordering it online! I hope you went out and got your copy today! If you have not read this series or the Mortal Instruments you are really missing out.

Eternal Starling
by Angela Corbett
Release Date: Dec. 6, 2011



Evie Starling has lived a relatively uneventful life hanging out with friends, gossiping about boys, and driving her 1966 Mustang. All of that changes when she moves to Gunnison, Colorado, to start college and meets two mysterious men.

For centuries, Alex Night and Emil Stone have yearned for Evie—but they each have their own reasons for wanting to be with her. When both men claim to be her soul mate and tell her about an unbelievable past, Evie learns that she’s not the person she thought she was. Soon, Evie finds herself in the middle of an age-old battle between the Amaranthine Society—the soul protectors, and the Daevos Resistance—the soul destroyers. With a past she doesn’t understand, and a future rife with danger, Evie has to decide who she can trust. But Alex and Emil aren’t the only ones who want Evie, and her soul is about to become the rope in an eternal tug-of-war. (Goodreads Description)


My Thoughts:
Doesn't this just sound good ! Epic battles, love tri-angles! Sign me up! If this sounds good to you too, you don't have long to wait.  Also, I love the cover. It is simple yet beautiful. I can't wait to read this book!





Obsidian
Series: Lux #1
by Jennifer Armentrout
Release Date: Dec. 6, 2011

Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is..  (Goodreads Description)


My Thoughts:
Yay! A hottie alien living next door!! He has abilities and dreamy green eyes, and drives you crazy in more ways then one. I defiantly wouldn't mind hiding out with a cutie like that. This book sounds intriguing and can't wait to see what happens between these two.

Blog Tour: Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia




The awesome Debra Anastasia has written another book, and I am here to tell you about it.








POUGHKEEPSIE

He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him—just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others . . . he’s homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.

Each day, Livia McHugh smiles politely and acknowledges her fellow commuters as she waits for the train to the city. She dismisses this kindness as nothing special, just like her. She’s the same as a million other girls—certainly no one to be cherished. But special or not, she smiles every day, never imagining that someone would rely on the simple gesture as if it were air to breathe.

When the moment comes that Livia must do more than smile, without hesitation she steps into the fray to defend the homeless man. And she's surprised to discover an inexplicable connection with her new friend. After danger subsides, their smiles become conversation. Their words usher in a friendship, which awakens something in each of them. But it’s not long before their bond must prove its strength. Entanglements from the past challenge both their love and their lives.

Blake’s heart beats for Livia’s, even if her hands have to keep its rhythm. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love never fails. Love never fails, right?

In an interwoven tale of unlikely loves and relationships forged by fire, Debra Anastasia takes readers into the darkest corners of human existence, only to show them the radiant power of pure adoration and true sacrifice. Complicated families and confused souls find their way to light in this novel, which manages to be racy, profane, funny, and reverent all at once.

Interview with Katie M. John & Giveaway:



Katie M. John
Author of The Knight Trilogy!



First off I would like to thank Katie for taking time out of her busy schedule to answer some questions!
 
 
1. Have you always enjoyed writing and wanted to become and author? When did you start?
 
I've always loved stories; preferred the world of fiction to reality. As an only child I spent a lot imaginative play time and never really grew out of it. I started writing stories in my head during my teenage years although at that time I mainly penned poetry. When I approached my thirtieth birthday I knew it was time to put some ink to all those day dreams and I challenged myself to write my first novel before I turned thirty one. I did it.

Writing the first one is the hardest - you're dealing with all this sense of self doubt and weight of literary heritage. You have grand aspirations of making your mark in it all. Once you've done the first, you realise it's not about anything except the story and all the rest of it is quite irrelevant.
 
 
2. What is your favorite part about being an author/writer? What is the hardest part?
 
The best bit about being a writer is the sense of building something. It gives a great sense of satisfaction to see a story unfold and for characters to take shape. There is a real buzz when you read over a section and it makes the hairs on the back of your arms stand on end because it feels as if it has been written by magic.
The worst bit about being a writer is the frustration at never feeling like you can dedicate enough time to your writing. It's a complete juggling act between family life, the day job and the creative muse. I don't think living with a writer can be very easy.
 
3.  What was it that inspired you to write the Knight Trilogy?
 
I've always been completely spellbound by the Arthurian legends and the pre-Raphaelite artists who were greatly inspired by the legends. A lot of the Knight Trilogy draws on very personal experiences and it will probably be the most personally exposing thing that I write. The Knight Trilogy is essentially about the power of love (nearly burst into nineteen eighties ballad mode there!)  - but seriously, first love is such a paradox, it has this incredible potential to be destructive and yet it builds you into the adult you become.
 
 
4. Are the characters in the books based on real people from your life?
 
The official, legal answer to that is no - but I defy any writer to write characters without drawing on people they have met and shared a part of their life with. If they do manage this feat, I question how 'realistic' those characters are to the reader. Without this sense of the real then they become nothing more than pieces in a plot.  All the main characters in The Knight Trilogy have strong elements of people I have known - but only their good bits!
 
5.  If you had to choose, who is your favorite character and why?
 
It's impossible for me to pin my favour to one character,  so I'll unashamedly cheat. Clearly, as many of my readers have guessed, I am totally in love with Blake; everything about him makes my heart skip. However, as a writer I am most proud of Delta. I find her completely fascinating. She's the ultimate best friend; funny, sharp, intelligent and streetwise. She started off in the plans as quite a minor character, but she was having none of that. Over the course of the trilogy she has written herself in and has demanded my attention. I have a feeling that Delta will one day have her very own story.
 
6. Do you have any advice for the other writers out there?
 
Keep going - one word at a time.
 
 
7.  What can we expect in the third and final book of the Knight Trilogy?
 
Book Three 'Starfire' is very dark. It returns to ancient European fairytales and superstitions; there are murders, deaths and mutilations. The story splits between The Realm, the forests of France and the mountains of Switzerland. There are going to be many surprises along the way and nobody is safe. We're going to see Blake and Mina's relationship tested to the very limit and we are also going to find out a lot more about Delta. There is going to be definite need for a box of tissues and I am hoping it will cause a few gasps along the way. I know how it is going to end but I don't know exactly how it is going to play out.
I'm really excited by it but I'm also going through complete writer's angst about letting go of my story.
 
 
8. Do you have any other works in progress that we can look forward to in the future?
 
I have spent the last six months writing a Victorian Steam punk, Paranormal Romance, Fairytale novel (no genre confusion there then!) called 'Beautiful Freaks'. It's set in Victorian London in the Haymarket and centers around a series of paranormal and gruesome murders. The main protagonist is called Kaspian Blackthorne; he's deliciously dark and decadent. However it's a little misleading to suggest there is just one protagonist because the novel is very much about stories within stories and there is a whole cast of characters who take it in turn to reveal themselves to you. Each crime that takes place has an attached fairytale. If you like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allen Poe and Robert Louis Stevenson with a dash of very contemporary YA Paranormal Romance - then you might like this. You can read a teaser and find out more at www.beautifulfreaks.weebly.com
 
 
9.  Which authors have influenced you in some way, either through your style of writing or just inspiration in general?
 
I've been influenced by so many amazingly talented writers. I am a total Goth at heart and love the works of Stoker, Shelley, Walpole, Lewis, Lovecraft, Poe etc. They have been a major influence on my poetry and more recent short stories and Beautiful Freaks. I also admire the amazing spectrum of talent which can be found on the YA shelf at the moment. Malinda Lo, Suzanne Collins, Maggie Stiefvater, Lauren Kate, Stephanie Meyer, Becca Fitzpatrick are all exceptionally talented story tellers.
I'm distressed to see so much unfounded criticism of writers such as these. There is a complete failure to recognise and understand that a lot of respected writers of the English canon were  once labeled as 'pulp' by cultural critics of the time. (Many of the ones that I have labelled in my first list for example) That has always been a part of the horror, Gothic movement - a refusal to bow to pseudo-intellectualism. The strength of such writers is their ability to tap into human fears and experiences - to tell a story that resonates with a soul, regardless of academic credentials.
I think that makes them some of the cleverest, talented and most enduring writers of the English canon.   
 
10. Some quick answer questions:
 
 -Favorite genre? Gothic horror, American Gothic,Fairytale, Transgressive, YA Paranormal Romance.
- Favorite movie? Donnie Darko, Requiem For a Dream, Dirty Dancing, V for Vendetta, Twilight.
- Favorite place to read? In the park under a sunbeam.
- Favorite place to write? In bed.

For seventeen year old Mina Singer, falling in love with an Authurian Knight on a white horse was never part of the plan--- especially being that she's an ordinary college girl living in the twenty-first century. As Mina finds herself catapulted into a land she believed only existed in the bedtime stories of her childhood, she soon discovers that Fairyland is not quiet as innocent as she imagined.

The question is.......... who will come out alive?

Review: Immortal Beloved by Katie M. John

Release Date: Aug. 25, 2011
Series: Knight Trilogy #2
Publisher: Little Bird Publishing House
Reading Level: Young Adult
Pages: 450
Type: E-book Arc

THIS TIME, THE DAMSEL MUST RESCUE HER KNIGHT IN DISTRESS.
As Mina Singer tries to piece together her broken heart, Blake's adventure in Egypt places his in serious peril.
As ancient and terrifying Egyptian rituals are resurrected by the sorceress Morgan Le Fay, Blake embarks on the most horrifying quest yet - one which no other mortal has ever survived.
This time, the damsel must rescue her knight in a terrifying race against death. (Goodreads Description)



* WARNING ~ If you have not read Forest of Adventures then don't read ahead there are a few spoilers from the first book mentioned *





Forest of Adventures captured my heart and took me on a magical ride. The end; however, rocked my world with an engagement, and then shattered it with a break up letter. Immortal Beloved begins with a broken and shattered girl, trying to pull her life together, with the help of friends and family. As soon as she starts to pick up the pieces something happens that shatters her soul. Mina must then be saved by her ex love Sam, her best friend Delta, and Vivian. Now battered and bruised and at the end of her rope she is sent on a Realm mission. She must race to Egypt to save Blake, and her future.

While Mina races to save her knight in shinning armor, Blake is tested like never before. The choices he makes will effect his life and his future. Will Mina get to Blake in time to save him? Will their relationship be able to withstand the challenges they must face? Well I'm not going to tell you , you must read and find out yourself!

I adored Forest of Adventures, and did not think the story could get more magical, but I was way wrong. Not only do you get the timeless magic of the realm in this sequel, but you are thrown into the lore and majesty of Egypt. This book is filled with magic, mystical beings, demons, immortality, peril, and the magic of love and friendship.

It is one emotional, and suspenseful ride and I enjoyed every moment of it. Not only do you get more Mina and Blake. . . . . did I mention more BLAKE ! ! I know I sound like a broken record, but Blake is the definition of YUM ! You also get the blooming of new relationships, and introductions to new characters. If you like mystical magical romances you will love this book.

This sequel is even better then the first book, and I can't wait to see what’s in store for the end. It is going to be epic!

Overall Rating = A++
