Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout

by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Released |September 18th 2012 by Spencer Hill Press|
Edition |Ebook|
Add to Goodreads

Dying sucks-- and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand. After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.
Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out.
However, she's willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't? But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not have been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life. For real this time.

JLA's writing style really draws you into the story. And just like all her other books that I've read, Cursed did not disappoint. It was a story that drew you in from the start and left you wanting more with each page turned. This was an easy read for me and I flew through this book! I was hoping this would be a series, but I do believe it's a stand alone, something I haven't read in a while.

Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris

(Unraveling, #1)
by Elizabeth Norris
Released |April 24th 2012 by Balzer + Bray|
Edition |Hardcover, 445 pages|
Add to Goodreads

Two days before the start of her junior year, seventeen-year-old Janelle Tenner is hit by a pickup truck and killed--as in blinding light, scenes of her life flashing before her, and then nothing. Except the next thing she knows, she's opening her eyes to find Ben Michaels, a loner from her high school whom Janelle has never talked to, leaning over her. And even though it isn't possible, she knows--with every fiber of her being--that Ben has somehow brought her back to life.
But her revival, and Ben's possible role in it, is only the first of the puzzles that Janelle must solve. While snooping in her FBI agent father's files for clues about her accident, she uncovers a clock that seems to be counting down to something--but to what? And when someone close to Janelle is killed, she can no longer deny what's right in front of her: Everything that's happened--the accident, the murder, the countdown clock, Ben's sudden appearance in her life--points to the end of life as she knows it. And as the clock ticks down, she realizes that if she wants to put a stop to the end of the world, she's going to need to uncover Ben's secrets--and keep from falling in love with him in the process.
From debut author Elizabeth Norris comes this shattering novel of one girl's fight to save herself, her world, and the boy she never saw coming.

I am so glad I finally got an excuse to hurry and read this. I've had this in my tbr pile since it released, but have never gotten the chance to read it. So thanks to the Pick It For Me Challenge, where someone picks a book out of your tbr list for you to read, instead of you choosing for yourself. And btw, I loved it :) And I'm so, so glad I finally read it! This was an amazing read and I can't wait for Unbreakable, the next installment in this series, to release!

First Frost by Jennifer Estep

First Frost
(Mythos Academy, #0.5)
by Jennifer Estep
Released |July 1st 2011 by Kensington|
Edition |Ebook|
Add to Goodreads

I am Gwen Frost, and I have a Gypsy gift.  It's called psychometry - that's a fancy way of saying that I see images in my head and get flashes of other people's memories off almost everything I touch, even guys.
My gift makes me kind of nosy. Okay, okay, maybe a lot nosy--to the point of obsession sometimes. I want to know everything about everyone around me. But even I don't want to know the secrets my friend Paige is hiding or the terrible loss that will send me to a new school - Mythos Academy, where the teachers aren't preparing us for the SATs, but to battle Reapers of Chaos.  Now I have no friends and no idea how my gift fits in with all these warrior whiz kids.  The only thing I do know is that my life is never, ever going to be the same...

I actually thought this was a pretty good novella to the Mythos Academy. If you have not read the first book in the series, then I really think you should start with this one. It really quick and short, but it gives you a lot of information and premise to what you will find out and learn about in the books to come.

Don't look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them.That is Ethan Chase's unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he'd dare to fall for.
Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister's world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.

Oh, how I missed the world of the Iron Fey! Julie Kagawa is amazing and never ceases to amaze me even more. I was so hoping that I would not be disappointed with book since I loved the Iron Fey series so much and I am glad my wish was granted! I adored this book :) It was just what I was hoping it would be and more.

Edition |Paperback, 452 pages|
Add to Goodreads

No one is like Daemon Black.
When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.
But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.
Together we’re stronger... and they know it.

(The Chemical Garden, #3)
by Lauren DeStefano
Releases |February 12th 2013 by Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers|
Edition |Hardback, 384 pages|

Time is running out for Rhine in this conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Chemical Garden Trilogy.
With the clock ticking until the virus takes its toll, Rhine is desperate for answers. After enduring Vaughn’s worst, Rhine finds an unlikely ally in his brother, an eccentric inventor named Reed. She takes refuge in his dilapidated house, though the people she left behind refuse to stay in the past. While Gabriel haunts Rhine’s memories, Cecily is determined to be at Rhine’s side, even if Linden’s feelings are still caught between them.
Meanwhile, Rowan’s growing involvement in an underground resistance compels Rhine to reach him before he does something that cannot be undone. But what she discovers along the way has alarming implications for her future—and about the past her parents never had the chance to explain.
In this breathtaking conclusion to Lauren DeStefano’s Chemical Garden trilogy, everything Rhine knows to be true will be irrevocably shattered.

Why I'm Wishing...
I can't wait for the release of Sever! This is the final installment in the chemical garden series by Lauren DeStefano and it's a long wait :( But this series is amazing, but what will happen. I'm just so anxious! This is an amazing series and I definitely recommend it. At first I thought I wasn't going to like it, but I flew through books 1 and 2 :)

Currently free on Amazon!

Intuition: A Bonus INTANGIBLE Short Story
Luke and his twin sister Sera have unusual abilities. Hers is a gift—she can heal with a touch of her hand. His is a curse—he can see the future but he can’t do anything about it.
On a hike up the mountain, Luke has a vision unlike any other—one that leaves him terrified. Knowing that it will come true—and that he must do everything in his power to stop it—leaves his own future uncertain.
Don't miss the first book in the series, INTANGIBLE, on sale January 2012.

I really liked J. Meyer's first book Intangible. It was an interesting and entertaining read. I believe that this short story should be read before you read Intangible, because those who have read Intangible, it's just a repeat of a story that you already know. I am rating this 3 stars for that reason because it was just a repeat of information I already knew.

Blood Spirit Blitz

Blood Spirit 
(Sons of Navarus #3)
by Gabrielle Bisset
Sub-Genres |Paranormal, Erotic, Vampire|
I am everything you seek. I am vampire.
Blessed with the gift of telepathy, Terek always knows what a woman wants. His gift has afforded him nightly sensual pleasures and exotic treats for centuries, but beneath the surface he yearns for much more.
Ilona can give him what his soul craves, but only if he trusts his heart. One fateful choice made out of desire puts all he cares for in danger. With a civil war and the threat of Archon hunters at every turn, this Son may lose everything if he can't find the balance between heart and mind. 

Tracing the outline of her jaw, he watched the face of this angel and hated having to wake her. But if she didn't take his blood, he'd lose her for certain and for the first time since he'd turned her, he knew he couldn't bear to think of his world without her.
"Ilona," he whispered near her cheek. "Wake. I'm here."
Slowly her eyelids fluttered open and eyes vacant and lost stared back at him. "Terek?"
Her gaze cut like a knife to his heart. She was nearly gone already, her soul slipping into that void between the vampire and human worlds.
"Look into my eyes, Ilona. Look! I need you to stay with me."
Her eyelids drooped as she began to lose consciousness. Terror raced through his body. There was no more time to wait. Fear of losing her controlled his every move, and his fangs exploded into his mouth. In seconds, he'd pierced his wrist and the blood began to seep from his vein.
Pressing it to her pale lips, he waited in desperation for her to take his blood into her mouth. The blood pooled on her lips, but she made no effort to take it.
"Ilona! Listen to your sire. Drink. Now!" he commanded.
Her eyes opened and turning her head, she whispered, "No. Let me go."

Dearly, Beloved
(Gone With the Respiration, #2)
by Lia Habel
Released |September 25th 2012 by Del Rey|
Edition |E-ARC|
Source |Netgalley|
Add to Goodreads

Can the living coexist with the living dead?
That’s the question that has New Victorian society fiercely divided ever since the mysterious plague known as “The Laz” hit the city of New London and turned thousands into walking corpses. But while some of these zombies are mindless monsters, hungry for human flesh, others can still think, speak, reason, and control their ravenous new appetites.
Just ask Nora Dearly, the young lady of means who was nearly kidnapped by a band of sinister zombies but valiantly rescued by a dashing young man . . . of the dead variety.
Nora and her savior, the young zombie soldier Bram Griswold, fell hopelessly in love. But others feel only fear and loathing for the reanimated dead. Now, as tensions grow between pro- and anti-zombie factions, battle lines are being drawn in the streets. And though Bram is no longer in the New Victorian army, he and his ex-commando zombie comrades are determined to help keep the peace. That means taking a dangerous stand between The Changed, a radical group of sentient zombies fighting for survival, and The Murder, a masked squad of urban guerrillas hellbent on destroying the living dead. But zombies aren’t the only ones in danger: Their living allies are also in The Murder’s crosshairs, and for one vengeful zealot, Nora Dearly is the number one target.
As paranoia, prejudice, and terrorist attacks threaten to plunge the city into full-scale war, Nora’s scientist father and his team continue their desperate race to unlock the secrets of “The Laz” and find a cure. But their efforts may be doomed when a mysterious zombie appears bearing an entirely new strain of the virus—and the nation of New Victoria braces for a new wave of the apocalypse.
Lia Habel’s spellbinding, suspenseful sequel to Dearly, Departed takes her imaginative mash-up of period romance, futuristic thriller, and zombie drama to a whole new level of innovative and irresistible storytelling.

Let me first start off saying that I was super excited to receive an E-ARC of this book through Netgalley, because I loved Dearly Departed so much. With Dearly Departed the story intrigued me and it was different than any other book that I had read. But as it came to Dearly, Beloved, I tried so hard to enjoy it and to fall in love with it like I did Dearly Departed, but it just didn't happen. I couldn't even finish the book. I tried, I really did, but I just couldn't get into it.

But before he can even learn the rules of this new world, his fellow students are turning into flesh eating zombies. And he’s next on the menu.

(Chronicles of Nick, #4)
by Sherrilyn Kenyon 
Releases |March 4th 2013 by St. Martin's Griffin|
The heat is on, and a new threat to humanity has risen…
Nick has his driver’s license and he’s not afraid to use it. But turning sixteen isn’t what he thought it would be. While other boys his age are worried about prom dates and applying for college, Nick is neck deep in enemies out to stop him from living another day. No longer sure if he can trust anyone, his only ally seems to be the one person he’s been told will ultimately kill him.
But life spent serving the undead is anything except ordinary. And those out to get him have summoned an ancient force so powerful even the gods fear it. As Nick learns to command and control the elements, the one he must master in order to combat his latest foe is the one most likely to destroy him. As the old proverb goes, fire knows nothing of mercy, and if Nick is to survive this latest round, he will have to sacrifice a part of himself. However, the best sacrifice is seldom the sanest move. Sometimes it’s the one that leaves your enemies confused, and you even more so.
And sometimes, you have to trust your enemy to save your friends. But what do you do when that enemy is you?

Why I'm Wishing...
I want this book so bad! I freaking love this series. Nick is adorable and hilarious. He is the reason why I love this series. It's action packed, with tons of suspense and more! This is one of my all time favorite series :) Can't wait until this releases! I definitely recommend it!

Edition |Ebook|
Add to Goodreads

I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me—again.
Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects—and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I’m also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me?
It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can’t use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me—and I’m in for the fight of my life.

This has definitely become a favorite series. I love when I find new books by author that I have never read before and loved! This series is amazing to me and I love it, probably because it has some awesome things that I love about a book all wrapped up in one. Gods/Goddess, warriors, romance, action, and suspense! :) What gets more better than that?!

Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill

Some Girls Bite
(Chicagoland Vampires, #1)
by Chloe Neill
Released |April 7th 2009 by NAL Trade| 
Edition |Ebook|
Add to Goodreads

First in a brand new series about a Chicago graduate student's introduction into a society of vampires.
Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was Merit's. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker-and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.
Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she's traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan "Lord o' the Manor" Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries' worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude- and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan's attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone's still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war-and there will be blood.

I am so happy that I finally got the chance to buy this book. I've been wanting to read it for a while now and I've heard some amazing things about this series. With that being said, I really enjoyed the story. It was action packed, wasn't focused mainly on the romance, awesome characters and etc. :) I was entertained throughout the entire book!

Cover Reveal - Ten Tiny Breaths by KA Tucker

Hey everyone :)
Here with another cover reveal and the cover for Ten Tiny Breaths is so pretty!
Hosted by: Super Gurl Books
Author Bio
Born in small-town Ontario, Kathleen published her first book at the age of six with the help of her elementary school librarian and a box of crayons. She is a voracious reader and the farthest thing from a genre-snob, loving everything from High Fantasy to Chick Lit. Kathleen currently resides in a quaint small town outside of Toronto with her husband, two beautiful girls, and an exhausting brood of four-legged creatures.
The Reveal

Kacey Cleary’s whole life imploded four years ago in a drunk-driving accident. Now she’s working hard to bury the pieces left behind—all but one. Her little sister, Livie. Kacey can swallow the constant disapproval from her born-again aunt Darla over her self-destructive lifestyle; she can stop herself from going kick-boxer crazy on Uncle Raymond when he loses the girls’ college funds at a blackjack table. She just needs to keep it together until Livie is no longer a minor, and then they can get the hell out of Grand Rapids, Michigan.But when Uncle Raymond slides into bed next to Livie one night, Kacey decides it’s time to run. Armed with two bus tickets and dreams of living near the coast, Kacey and Livie start their new lives in a Miami apartment complex, complete with a grumpy landlord, a pervert upstairs, and a neighbor with a stage name perfectly matched to her chosen “profession.” But Kacey’s not worried. She can handle all of them. What she can’t handle is Trent Emerson in apartment 1D.Kacey doesn’t want to feel. She doesn’t. It’s safer that way. For everyone. But sexy Trent finds a way into her numb heart, reigniting her ability to love again. She starts to believe that maybe she can leave the past where it belongs and start over. Maybe she’s not beyond repair.But Kacey isn’t the only one who’s broken. Seemingly perfect Trent has an unforgivable past of his own, one that, when discovered, will shatter Kacey’s newly constructed life and send her back into suffocating darkness.

Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep

Touch of Frost
(Mythos Academy, #1)
by Jennifer Estep
Released |August 1st 2011 by K-Teen|
Edition |Ebook|
My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy; a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody's head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest. But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I'm determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why; especially since I should have been the one who did...
I have been wanting to read Touch of Frost every since it first released! I've had the first two books in this series for a while now, but never got the chance to read it! Now I finally have and I am so glad I did :) I loved this book and could not put it down! I read this book in a day and can't wait to start Kiss of Frost, ASAP!

Meghan Chase is finally getting used to being the Iron Queen, ruler of the Iron Fey. Her life may be strange, but with former Winter prince Ash by her side at last, she wouldn’t have it any other way.
But when they travel to the Summer and Winter courts’ gathering for Elysium, the oracle from Meghan’s past returns with a dire prophecy: “What you carry will either unite the courts, or it will destroy them.” Now Meghan faces a devastating choice that may determine the future of all fey—and her and Ash’s unborn child…

I was so excited for the release of this novella, but was happy to see we got another glimpse into that Iron Fey world we love! It was so nice to see Meghan, Ash, Puck, and Grimalkin again. Oh, and btw, Meghan's freaking PREGO!
