(The Shadow Ravens, #1)
by Aileen Erin
Releases |October 14th 2014 by Ink Monster, LLC|
In the not-too-distant future, the color of your helix tattoo shows exactly how your DNA was modified—green for super-smart scientists, black for pumped-up warriors, white for the immortal Seligo—but Cipher’s red helix is a death sentence. It’s a sign of unstable DNA, which is probably the reason she can manipulate electricity.
When she was eight years old, Cipher made the mistake of showing her uncle the tattoo. In return, he killed her parents and tried to kidnap her.
She’s been on the run ever since, and twelve long years later, Cipher is tired of hiding. Survival isn’t enough anymore. She wants her life back.
Hacking into the Citadel mainframe is a huge risk, but it pays off when she finds a database on red helixes. Before she can copy it, she loses control of her power, charring her last processor, and the only person in the Arizona Voids that can get her back online is her oldest friend, Knightly. She hasn’t seen him in person since she started running, and Knightly 2.0 is fully upgraded with a six-pack and knee-melting smile.
For a girl like Cipher, trust doesn’t come easily, but Knightly makes her yearn for a life she knows she can’t have, especially when every secret she reveals endangers them both.
Why I'm Waiting...
This one sounds pretty interesting and I've only recently stumbled across it. I'm curious to see what it is about.

Two jumped off the pier that night...but only one came back alive
Bryn did everything with her best friend Erica. So when someone dared Erica to jump off the pier one night at Harding Beach, Bryn was right by her side. But when Bryn made it back to the surface, Erica was nowhere to be found. Bryn tries to make a fresh start by burying her memories of that awful night. But when a Twitter post from "EricaNShaw" pops up on her feed and a chilling voice mail appears on her phone, she realizes that someone isn't ready to let go of the past..
This was, unfortunately, a book that I had to DNF. I was not able to connect to the story or the characters in any way and it was very forgettable. The story line is what made me want to pick up the book and had me intrigued because I love a good mystery, but I just couldn't get into this one. The beginning was okay, but as the book continued I felt as if the story was all over the place and  becoming repetitive. I was also confused at times which made things worse for me because I felt that some things were moving too quickly and not being explained good enough and the characters just fell flat for me and I was not able to connect. I wanted to like this book and push through it, but once I sat it down I never found the interest to pick it back up.

Book Hauling It Up (102)

Hey everyone,
I hope you have had a wonderful week. I've been suffering from a reading slump once again, but it's been going on for about a month in a half now. I'm trying to get back into reading books, but it's been extremely hard this time around. Hopefully I figure it out.

I read Requiem awhile ago, but never bought the paperback until now.
I can't wait to read Thrive. I'm hoping this will be the one to help me through my slump since I love the series.
