Waiting on Wednesday #277, August 31st

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

The Boy is Back by Meg Cabot
Expected Publication: October 18th, 2016
From Goodreads:
From New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot comes the sweetly humorous story of a man who has to face his past in order to find his future.

Sometimes to move forward, you have to go back…

One post. That’s all it took to destroy the care free, glamorous life of pro golfer Reed Stewart. One tiny post on the Internet. 

Then again, it’s not like Reed’s been winning many tournaments lately, and his uncle isn’t the only one who says it’s because of the unfinished business he left behind back home in Bloomville, Indiana—namely Reed’s father, the Honorable Judge Richard P. Stewart, and the only girl Reed ever loved, Becky Flowers.

But Reed hasn’t spoken to either his father or Becky in over a decade. 

Until that post on the Internet. Suddenly, Reed’s family has become a national laughingstock, his publicist won’t stop calling, his siblings are begging for help, and Reed realizes he has no other choice: He’s got to go home to face his past . . . the Judge and the girl he left behind.

Becky’s worked hard to build her successful senior relocation business, but she’s worked even harder to forget Reed Stewart ever existed—which hasn’t been easy, considering he’s their hometown’s golden boy, and all anyone ever talks about. It was fine while they were thousands of miles apart, but now he’s back in Bloomville. She has absolutely no intention of seeing him—until his family hires her to help save his parents.

Now Reed and Becky can’t avoid one another…or the memories of that one fateful night.

Can the quirky residents of Bloomville bring these two young people back together, or will Reed and Becky continue to allow their pasts to deny them the future they deserve?

This warm, thought-provoking book, told entirely in texts, emails, and journal entries, is as much about the enduring bond of families as it is about second chances at love, and will delight as much as it entertains.

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Expected Publication: October 18th, 2016
From Goodreads:
The highly anticipated sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller that critics are calling “out-of-this-world awesome.” 

Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.

The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault. 

Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion. 

When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.

But relax. They've totally got this. They hope.

Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.


Rose & Thorn by Sarah Prineas
Expected Publication: October 18th, 2016
From Goodreads:
This beauty isn’t sleeping! Sarah Prineas’s darkly imaginative retelling breaks down the classic story of Sleeping Beauty in a big, bold way. Brimming with action and romance, beautiful Rose must escape the curse that will force the kingdom to fall into a century-long slumber and fights for the freedom to find her own happily ever after.

After the spell protecting her is destroyed, Rose seeks safety in the world outside the valley she had called home. She’s been kept hidden all her life to delay the three curses she was born with, curses that will have drastic consequences if they take effect. Accompanied by the handsome and mysterious Griff and Quirk, his witty and warmhearted partner, Rose tries to escape from the ties that bind her to this forced fairy tale. But will the path they take lead them to freedom, or will it bring them straight into the prescribed story they are trying to avoid?

Set in the world of Prineas’s Ash & Bramble fifty years later, Rose & Thorn is a powerful retelling of Sleeping Beauty. If you like your fairy tales dark, your heroines daring, and your suitors dashing, this is the book for you. 

Saving Red by Sonya Sones
Expected Publication: October 18th, 2016
From Goodreads:
Right before winter break, fourteen-year-old Molly Rosenberg reluctantly volunteers to participate in Santa Monica’s annual homeless count, just to get her school’s community service requirement out of the way. But when she ends up meeting Red, a spirited homeless girl only a few years older than she is, Molly makes it her mission to reunite her with her family in time for Christmas. This turns out to be extremely difficult—because Red refuses to talk about her past. There are things Molly won’t talk about either. Like the awful thing that happened last winter. She may never be ready to talk about that. Not to Red, or to Cristo, the soulful boy she meets while riding the Ferris wheel one afternoon.

When Molly realizes that the friends who Red keeps mentioning are nothing more than voices inside Red’s head, she becomes even more concerned about her well-being. How will Molly keep her safe until she can figure out a way to get Red home? In Sonya Sones’ latest novel, two girls, with much more in common than they realize, give each other a new perspective on the meaning of family, friendship, and forgiveness.

Oh, wow, these books coming out on the 18th, and yeah, I just can't wait to read them and for everyone else to read them! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Teaser Tuesday #281, August 30th

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Today's teaser comes from The Night is Alive by Heather Graham, page 62.

"They'd been bound and-metaphorically, at least-forced to walk the plank.' That kind of implies a 'pirate' might have wanted them dead, or they might have met their end off the deck of a pirate ship."

Yeah, it kinda does! Need to read more! What about you guys? Happy reading!

We Have the Cover of Ghostwalker #13!!!!

OK, so I got 35 posts in 7 days, so yeah, I'm happy with this week, and I can't wait for another one! What about you guys? Happy reading!

So this week I want to read Magic Binds and Wild Embrace.

Mercenary Kate Daniels knows all too well that magic in post-Shift Atlanta is a dangerous business. But nothing she's faced could have prepared her for this…

Kate and the former Beast Lord Curran Lennart are finally making their relationship official. But there are some steep obstacles standing in the way of their walk to the altar…

Kate's father, Roland, has kidnapped the demigod Saiman and is slowly bleeding him dry in his never-ending bid for power. A Witch Oracle has predicted that if Kate marries the man she loves, Atlanta will burn and she will lose him forever. And the only person Kate can ask for help is long dead.

The odds are impossible. The future is grim. But Kate Daniels has never been one to play by the rules…
The "alpha author of paranormal romance"* presents a stunningly sensual collection of four all-new Psy-Changeling novellas, in which taboos are broken, boundaries are crossed, and instincts prove irresistible...

Echo of Silence In a deep-sea station, Tazia Nerif has found her life's work as an engineer, keeping things running smoothly. But she wants nothing more than to break down the barrier of silence between her and her telekinetic Psy station commander...

Dorian A changeling who can never shift lives a life of quiet frustration--until he learns how to let his leopard come out and play...

Partners in Persuasion Still raw from being burned by a dominant female, wolf changeling Felix will never again risk being a plaything. But for dominant leopard Dezi, he's the most fascinating man she's ever met. She just has to convince this gun-shy wolf that he can trust the dangerous cat who wants to take a slow, sexy bite out of him...

Flirtation of Fate Seven years ago, Kenji broke Garnet's heart. Now the wolf packmates have to investigate the shocking murder of one of their own. And the more Kenji sees of the woman Garnet has become, the deeper he begins to fall once more. But even his primal instincts are no match for the dark secret he carries.

Week 35 Reviews: Hemlock, Thornhill, Willowgrove



From Goodreads:
Mackenzie and Amy were best friends. Until Amy was brutally murdered.

Since then, Mac's life has been turned upside down. She is being haunted by Amy in her dreams, and an extremist group called the Trackers has come to Mac's hometown of Hemlock to hunt down Amy's killer:

A white werewolf.

Lupine syndrome--also known as the werewolf virus--is on the rise across the country. Many of the infected try to hide their symptoms, but bloodlust is not easy to control.

Wanting desperately to put an end to her nightmares, Mac decides to investigate Amy's murder herself. She discovers secrets lurking in the shadows of Hemlock, secrets about Amy's boyfriend, Jason, her good pal Kyle, and especially her late best friend. Mac is thrown into a maelstrom of violence and betrayal that puts her life at risk.

From Goodreads:
Mac can't lose another friend. Even if he doesn't want to be found.

The ripple effect caused by Mac's best friend Amy's murder has driven Mac's new love, Kyle, to leave Hemlock and disappear from her life forever. But Mac knows that Kyle plans to enroll in a rehabilitation camp, where he can live with other werewolves. She refuses to accept his decision, especially since the camps are rumored to be tortuous. So she sets out in search of Kyle with a barely sober Jason—and Amy's all-seeing ghost—in tow.

Clues lead Mac to find Kyle in a werewolf den in Colorado—but their reunion is cut short by a Tracker raid. Now Mac and Kyle are trapped inside the electric fences of Thornhill, a camp for young werewolves. As she devises an escape plan, Mac uncovers dangerous secrets buried within the walls of Thornhill—and realizes that the risk to the people she loves is greater than ever before.

From Goodreads:
Willowgrove is Kathleen Peacock's riveting conclusion to the Hemlock trilogy, a dark, romantic, paranormal suspense series that pits friendship against survival, and trust against love.

Ever since Mac's best friend, Amy, was murdered, Hemlock has been a dangerous place. But now that Mac, her boyfriend, Kyle, and Amy's ex, Jason, have investigated a mass breakout from Thornhill, a werewolf "rehabilitation" camp, the danger has only grown. Fear of the infection spreading is now at an all-time high, and anyone with a scar is suspected of being a wolf.


What makes Mac even more afraid, though, are the dark experiments that the warden of Thornhill was performing on wolves in a secret asylum called Willowgrove. Uncovering the truth about what happened may be the only way for Mac to save everyone she loves and end her nightmares for good.

My review review of Hemlock, Thornhill
My Review:
Loved rereading these books, and all together, at that! These characters were just fantastic to read about, and the world was really interesting! A bonus of reading these all together was that Mac's dreams of Amy came together, and made a bit more sense!

Absolutely enjoyed going through the mystery of who the white wolf who killed Amy was, of the relationships between Mac, Kyle and Jason. And of course, everything that went on in the camps and how they broke everyone out of Thornhill!

There was only a mention of Amy's brother in Thornhill, that I could find. But I had kinda read the beginning of Willowgrove, and put it together that he would be pretty important to finale, and yeah, really enjoyed watching for hints o him!

The ending was pretty big! Not big on the whole "escape and then break into a camp" but "werewolves showing how numerous they are" and  "the truth of the werewolf population explosion." Things that are going to change things for the better!  Though there was a cost, and that sucked, but yeah, I think they'd be happy that the world they left was better then when they entered it!

Loved this series, it was fantastic, and I can't wait to read more by Kathleen Peacock!

Week 35 Review: Replica

From Goodreads:
Two girls, two stories, one epic novel.

From Lauren Oliver, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy, comes an epic, masterful novel that explores issues of individuality, identity, and humanity. Replica contains two narratives in one: Lyra's story and Gemma's story. The stories can be read separately, one after the other, or in alternating chapters. The two distinct parts of this astonishing novel combine to produce an unforgettable journey.

Lyra's story begins in the Haven Institute, a building tucked away on a private island off the coast of Florida that from a distance looks serene and even beautiful. But up close the locked doors, military guards, and biohazard suits tell a different story. In truth, Haven is a clandestine research facility where thousands of replicas, or human models, are born, raised, and observed. When a surprise attack is launched on Haven, two of its young experimental subjects—Lyra, or 24, and the boy known only as 72—manage to escape.

Gemma has been in and out of hospitals for as long as she can remember. A lonely teen, her life is circumscribed by home, school, and her best friend, April. But after she is nearly abducted by a stranger claiming to know her, Gemma starts to investigate her family's past and discovers her father's mysterious connection to the secretive Haven research facility. Hungry for answers, she travels to Florida, only to stumble upon two replicas and a completely new set of questions.

While the stories of Lyra and Gemma mirror each other, each contains breathtaking revelations critically important to the other story. Replica is an ambitious, thought-provoking masterwork. 

My Review:
I loved reading this book, both sides, Lyra and Gemma! I read it in alternating chapters, though I wish that I'd done Gemma's side first, then Lyra's, because at one point around the middle of both of them, we'd get a mini cliffhanger in Gemma's side, and then we'd go a bit further with Lyra and have another cliffhanger, and reading it the other way didn't make as much sense!

I loved seeing both sides of this world, with Lyra and Gemma! These characters were really interesting to read, and things weren't as they seemed, and yeah, they were just so great to read about! Plus, they were different people with different experiences, so it was interesting to see how they both saw the same thing!

A big part of this book, for me, is what it means to be human. And yeah, just because you were created scientifically-a clone-doesn't mean you're not human. It doesn't mean you are treated like some second class citizen or that you have no rights. And yeah, people that think that, are very annoying!

I really enjoyed how things ended! This is a series, and yeah, things were left up in the air, their safety, the truths about their pasts, and yeah, the bad guys are still out there. But it was a satisfying end, with a bit of happiness and a bit of sadness, but things will continue!

This book was so fantastic, and I can't wait to read the next book!

Week 35 Review: Nothing Left to Burn

From Goodreads:
Dear Dad,

I promised Matt I'd do this—become a Junior Cadet. That I wouldn't let you break me down. I know you hate me. Blame me for everything you lost. But that day I lost my brother and my dad. You could never be proud of me, could you? I was too "different." So, just in case you haven't figured it out yet, I'm saying good-bye. Maybe someday you’ll miss me.

Reece

Reece's words make her ache. Amanda understands wanting to belong. As a foster kid, she only feels at home at the firehouse where she volunteers. She wants to help Reece, but his dad is her boss. And she won't risk her place as a Junior Cadet—it’s all that she has. But when a string of arsons points to Amanda's foster brother as the culprit, her whole world is about to go up in flames. And the only way for Amanda and Reece to save each other is to risk getting burned.

My Review:
Oh, this book was just so fantastic! I loved reading about these characters, and this situation! It wasn't easy, but it was just so fantastic to read, and I enjoyed reading it so much, especially after just recently reading Some Boys!

One thing that this book made me do, was appreciate those that are out there, fighting fire. They risk their lives, and they have keep a bunch of pertinent information about fires. It's complicated, and yeah, this book just made me appreciate them!

These characters, oh! They had their stories, and those were deep and personal! I loved reading about them, and their lives! Reece with his dad, and Amanda being a foster kid, these were parts of them. And they affected their romance, and I just loved reading about it!

The mystery! This was a bit of a small town, and yeah, we weren't given a lot of clues-they were kids, and this was out of what they should know. But they were involved, and they did find the bad guy-and yeah, that made it such a great read!

Loved reading this book, it was just so fantastic, and I can't wait to read more by Patty Blount!
