Waiting on Wednesday #30, November 30th

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

Rapture by Lauren Kate
Expected Publication: June 12th, 2012
From Goodreads:
The sky is dark with wings. . . .

In RAPTURE, the highly anticipated fourth and final novel in the FALLEN series, Luce and Daniel are together . . . but for how long? Can history be rewritten? Or are some punishments eternal?
Well, that sounds really good! And the way that Passion ended, that means that June will not come fast enough! Speaking of Passion, I think that might be the worst cover of them all, if it'd been more a profile like Fallen, or something, then that would've been a bit better. But in this cover, this is the first one where Luce's wearing a white dress. In all others, I've noticed, she's been wearing dark black dresses. So that's a nice change! What about you guys? Happy reading! 

WWW Wednesday #34, November 30th

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

Thanks to MizB of Should Be Writing for starting and hosting this meme!

I'm currently reading Incarceron, and it's really good! Kinda creepy, but good!
I just finished reading Fearscape, and I got a lot of comments of how creepy the teaser on book 2 was yesterday, and this one was a lot like that, being book 3, and the end of the series! This was awesome! Loved it!
I'm going to be reading The Dark Divine next, can't wait for that, since it sounds wonderful, and I have the next book, too!
What about you guys? Happy reading!

Teaser Tuesday #34, November 29th

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 Soulstice by Simon Holt, page 18.
"The boy slowly lifted up a severed ear and pressed it against the windowpane. Blood dribbled out of it and down the glass."
Well, that isn't creepy at all!
And from my own book, Alone I Am Not, page 2.
"But whatever I could do, I was going to do. However much life had been twisted around, ground in the dust, spit on until there was just nothing but a speck left, it just kept going."
What about you guys? Happy reading!

Currently Listening To: Hot Mess by Ashley Tisdale
Currently Reading: Blood Red Road
Currently Watching: True Blood

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.

Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.
Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to.

In the Maze, life was easy. They had food, and shelter, and safety . . . until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago.

Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland. Government has disintegrated—and with it, order—and now Cranks, people covered in festering wounds and driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare, roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim . . . and meal.

The Gladers are far from finished with running. Instead of freedom, they find themselves faced with another trial. They must cross the Scorch, the most burned-out section of the world, and arrive at a safe haven in two weeks. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.

Thomas can only wonder—does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?
Saba has spent her whole life in Silverlake, a dried-up wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms. The Wrecker civilization has long been destroyed, leaving only landfills for Saba and her family to scavenge from. That's fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother Lugh is around. But when a monster sandstorm arrives, along with four cloaked horsemen, Saba's world is shattered. Lugh is captured, and Saba embarks on an epic quest to get him back.

Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the world outside of desolate Silverlake, Saba is lost without Lugh to guide her. So perhaps the most surprising thing of all is what Saba learns about herself: she's a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. And she has the power to take down a corrupt society from the inside. Teamed up with a handsome daredevil named Jack and a gang of girl revolutionaries called the Free Hawks, Saba stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization.

Blood Red Road has a searing pace, a poetically minimal writing style, violent action, and an epic love story. Moira Young is one of the most promising and startling new voices in teen fiction.
The terrifying, nail-biting, and grossly intriguing sequel toThe Devouring.

It's been six months since Reggie first discovered and fought against the Vours, malicious and demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on the eve of the Winter Solstice.

The Vours still haunt Reggie, but only in her dreams-until one night, when an unexpected visitor turns her nightmares into reality.
The Vours: evil, demonic beings that inhabit human bodies on Sorry Night, the darkest hours of the Winter Solstice.

It's been a year since Reggie first discovered the Vours, and the Winter Solstice is approaching once again. It will be another night of unspeakable horror for those unlucky enough to be taken by the Vours, because this time, she won't be able to stop them. The Vours have imprisoned Reggie in a psychiatric hospital, where she is subjected to a daily routine of unfathomably sadistic experiments. Her life is a living Hell, but she won't give up. They attacked her brother. They killed her friend. And Reggie will never stop fighting back.
Incarceron -- a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology -- a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber -- chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison -- a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device -- a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn's escape is born ...
Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared--the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in his own blood--but she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night held.

The memories her family has tried to bury resurface when Daniel returns, three years later, and enrolls in Grace and Jude's high school. Despite promising Jude she'll stay away, Grace cannot deny her attraction to Daniel's shocking artistic abilities, his way of getting her to look at the world from new angles, and the strange, hungry glint in his eyes.

The closer Grace gets to Daniel, the more she jeopardizes her life, as her actions stir resentment in Jude and drive him to embrace the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind the boy's dark secret...and the cure that can save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it--her soul.
A family destroyed. A love threatened. An enemy returns.

Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She was infected with the werewolf curse while trying to save him, and lost her beloved brother in the process.

Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot, a newcomer to town. But as the two grow closer, Grace's relationship with Daniel is put in danger - in more ways than one.

Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace begins to give into the wolf inside of her - not realizing that an enemy has returned and a deadly trap is about to be sprung.

A Strange Crazy Thing

I was looking at my stats for no particular reason and I found something quite strange. I live in Canada, and today, I've had this pop up for me for visiters today:

United States 32

Russia 14
Spain 5
Canada 4
Slovenia 4
Germany 2
Finland 2
Japan 2
Netherlands 2
Philippines 2

So of 69 (used my fancy dancy calculator) page visits today, 4 of my own country. So thank you, viewers with IP's coming from the US and Russia, for having such high page visits comparted to my own country. Very strange!

Ok, I admit. I was looking at The Story Siren's blogging help because I've been blogging for almost 8 months now, and I feel like I have a lot to learn! Most of my posts are for memes, and I don't actually say much. And then my random posts like this one, and my reviews, and pretty much everything that isn't linked to other sites, well, doensn't get a whole lot attention, and I'd like to help WIWC grow a bit. Though having my computer on longer would be helpful, too, since good ol' compter is going to turn itself off in less then 4 minutes, so I'd better publish this post!

In My Mailbox #24, November 27th-November Week 4

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to talk about the books we got in the mailbox or inbox as the case may be!

So this week I got:

Beautiful Creatures
White Cat
Red Glove
If I Die
All You Desire
A Beautiful Dark
The Scorpio Races

School Library:

Beyond Reach

The Burning Edge

Yep. Some books that I'm really going to enjoy reading! Hope you guys got some excellent books this week!

Week 47 Review: Where She Went

From Goodreads:
It's been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.

Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I StayWhere She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.

My Review:
Really enjoyed this book. It was another quick read like If I Stay, and it was different from If I Stay because it was from Adam's perspective, not Mia's. But it's the same where it was back and forth between past events, and how they relate to the present, in a way that I really love, that was just awesome!

This was a quick read, though not very summery. More fall-ish, to winter, to spring, with new hope, beginnings, and all that from a pretty dark place at the beginning.

Loved all the little stories, they were fun, deep, emotional, and painful at times, but they helped the story grow, and make sense, and made it work.

I really loved the way we got to see Mia from outside, how others see her, and not how she sees herself, because that just added to the book, added something that it needed, a fulfilment of understanding, so we had more depth in the characters, because we'd already seen Adam from Mia's perspective, and now Mia through Adam. And I loved that!

This was an excellent book, one I hope everyone will check out!

Week 47 Review: Wildefire

From Goodreads:
Every flame begins with a spark.

Ashline Wilde is having a rough sophomore year. She's struggling to find her place as the only Polynesian girl in school, her boyfriend just cheated on her, and now her runaway sister, Eve, has decided to barge back into her life. When Eve's violent behavior escalates and she does the unthinkable, Ash transfers to a remote private school nestled in California's redwoods, hoping to put the tragedy behind her. But her fresh start at Blackwood Academy doesn’t go as planned. Just as Ash is beginning to enjoy the perks of her new school—being captain of the tennis team, a steamy romance with a hot, local park ranger—Ash discovers that a group of gods and goddesses have mysteriously enrolled at Blackwood…and she's one of them. To make matters worse, Eve has resurfaced to haunt Ash, and she's got some strange abilities of her own. With a war between the gods looming over campus, Ash must master the new fire smoldering within before she clashes with her sister one more time… And when warm and cold fronts collide, there's guaranteed to be a storm.

My Review:
I'd already read the first chapter from a teaser thing. Don't remember what, just that it was the first chapter of this book, and I loved it! Didn't realize that I had until halfway through, since I think there was a good time period between the reading and the requesting, that I didn't link the 2 as being the same book, even if I had remembered the little teaser chapter. So that was a good weird.

Loved the idea of reincarnated gods, using the term gods loosely, because they were more like X-Men, then gods, they had powers, they were reincarnated, but they didn't live forever, they lived, and they died.

Ash is a bit wild, which is why her last name, and the title of the book, suit her. And I liked that, it added spunk to the novel. It did get her into a few boy situations, though, situations that she wanted to avoid, simply because they were unpleasant. But oh, well.

Loved the romance, and the ending, they really fit, and it just made the book all the more better! Loved that! Such a great ending! Not going to say what, but really great! But it did hurt a bit, what with the things that she learned!

I really enjoyed reading this book, so I hope you guys check it out!

Week 47 Review: Ruby Red

From Goodreads:
Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era!

Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon--the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust.

My Review:
This was an awesome time travel novel! Loved it! And I wish that the other 2 books in the series would be translated and published already! It was so short, and I really want to read more!!!

I didn't like Gideon at first, because he wasn't really nice, and I'm not sure if I should, from the description of book 2. But at the ending, he was pretty nice. Caring. Yell-ey. But like 2 crazy puzzle pieces fitting together. It made sense.

The time travelling, I didn't like the one guy, because he was mean. She was new to the whole thing, and he was strangling her! That was totally unfair, and I really didn't like him.

This was just a great book, and I just can't wait for more!

Week 47 Review: Hades

From Goodreads:
Heaven Help Her.

Bethany Church is an angel sent to Earth to keep dark forces at bay. Falling in love was never part of her mission, but the bond between Beth and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier Woods, is undeniably strong. But even Xavier's love, and the care of her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can't keep Beth from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, the demon Jake Thorn bargains for Beth's release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly, her loved ones, as well. 

My Review:
I loved Halo. It was great, and this doesn't meant that I didn't like Hades. I did. It added to the series, and to the plot, and overall made the story better, how the events in each book impact each other, like a chain of dominoes. And how it set up for Heaven. Especially the very ending. That was excellent! Such a cliffhanger, what's going to happen next!

Loved how it was in Hell, and how it was more high stakes then in Halo, and how there was less introductions, and less peace, and how it was just more. It was a great sequel that set up for a great final book, which I assume that Heaven is the last book.

Beth grew in this book. She was innocent in Halo, and she was mostly the same at the beginning of this book, but a bit more experienced. But she navigated Hell without dying, which is quite a feat for an angel. She had some tough decisions to make, though one of the worst was pulled from her in the ending with the death of a certain character whom I'm not going to name.

This was an excellent book, hope you guys check it out!

Week 47 Review: Raven

From Goodreads:
She wants him....

Zin dances with fire in every step; speaks with a honey sweet voice; and sees with eyes that can peer into your soul. Nicole's friendship with him is the only thing that saves her from the boredom of school and the turmoil of her family life. It's no wonder why Nicole is madly in love with him. But she can't understand why he keeps her at a distance, even though she can feel his soul reaching out for hers.
Zin is like no man Nicole has ever met, and he carries with him a very old secret. When Nicole uncovers the truth, her love may be the only thing that can save him from it.
My Review:
I enjoyed most of this book. It was really good, but some of the reactions weren't as strong as I'd expect them to be. Simply because of the characters, I guess, but I would've preferred more emotion, more time apart then what actually happened.

Really enjoyed the story, and the myth, and how long they've been living. That was a lot of fun, and interesting, and a unique spin on vampires. And how that brought the ending of the book, I really enjoyed that, it was good to read that, because it was different, fun, and it added depth.

I enjoyed their relationship, and how Zin fought against it for her sake, because of how different they were. It was her reactions to how they were different that I didn't like, because I wanted a full freak out, but Nicole wasn't like that. It just would've been more fun if she was.

This was a pretty good book, so I hope you guys check this out if you can!

Week 47 Review: You Belong to Me

From Goodreads:
Baltimore city Homicide Detective J.D. Fitzpatrick has seen a lot of violence but nothing like the trail of tortured bodies that are turning up throughout the city. And now he's starting to suspect that his medical examiner, Dr. Lucy Trask, may be shielding a dark secret that could connect her to these vicious killings-and put her next on the killer's hit list...

My Review:
What a great book! Such a complex mystery, with a bad guy, that seemed like a nice one, but was really bad, with a great romance, and yeah, loved it! So good!

I loved the mystery, there was a lot of POV's, and twists, and turns, and a lot of clues, and it was pretty fast paced, and there were all these little changes that we were told, like the club, that I really enjoyed! The plot was complex, the clues were great, and yeah, loved it!

Hated her parents, though. They were evil, like at the ending, the way her dad treated her? He was an ex-officer of the law, but he sure as heck didn't act that way, most definitively was he corrupt.

Loved the romance between J. D. and Lucy, because it was really great, and yeah, really added to the story!

This was a really excellent book, so I hope you guys check it out!

Week 47 Review: Passion

From Goodreads:
Luce would die for Daniel.

And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn't need to be that way. . . .

Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.

Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history.

Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever.

My Review:
Wow! Loved this book! Loved the history, and how much we learned of their relationship! I loved the history, and the cute things that she learned, and the harder things, and just everything! And all those places, they were awesome! Loved them!

Loved what we learned, and how much they travelled, and how things changed, things were different, and yet they were the same, just more clear, because there was more context, the history, and it just made a lot more sense!

The developments in this book, they were really great! Loved it, but this was more of a prologue for Rapture, with more understanding, more background, with great new things for Luce and us, but it also set up for Rapture, which I can't wait for.

This was a really great book, so I hope you guys check it out!

Week 47 Review: Between the Sea and Sky

From Goodreads:
For as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a siren--the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood--a dashing young man named Alander, who belongs to a winged race of people. As Esmerine and Alander band together to search for Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship . . . and ignite the emotions for a love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air.

My Review:
I really enjoyed this book, it was a lot of fun, and I really enjoyed reading it! And that Esmerine and Alander were both book lovers, well, that was icing on the cake! So fun, and I loved the romance, and yeah, just really good!

Loved how the romance developed, and how it wasn't supposed to develop, and how they fought it, it was rather cute! And the mermaids, and how everything worked out, and that it wasn't supposed, well, that was really good! I loved that it was kinda historical, what with the gowns that Esmerine and Dosinia had to wear.

I was a bit annoyed with the "possession" Esmerine had, like her mother, it was always Esmerine's mother, and that was a bit annoying, but other then that, I really enjoyed it!

This was a really good book, and if you like mermaids, then you'll like this book, so check it out! And the cover's pretty, too!

Week 47 Review: The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

From Goodreads:
Mara Dyer doesn't think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.

It can.
She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed.
There is.
She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love.
She's wrong.
My Review:
Oh, my, I loved, loved, loved, loved this book! So amazing, and the ending? Wow! I want more! But we don't even have a title for book 2! This was such a great book, with a great plot, with not knowing what was real or not, very mysterious, and "what-will-happen-next" seat of your pants excitement!!!

Oh, wow. The heat between Mara and Noah was so amazing! I loved it! So good, and intense, and hot and wonderful! Couldn't get enough! I loved their banter, so funny! I just loved it so much! Some of their conversations were really great!

Loved the mystery, and how she was thought crazy, and how things didn't make sense, like it was kind of hazy, and nothing came together quite right. But then it slowly started to make sense, and become something really amazing!

I loved the things that they discovered, and how that works, and I don't want to spoil it, I won't tell you what it is, but it is pretty amazing, and yeah!

The ending was so wonderful! It left questions unanswered, and what a cliff-hanger! Lots of life and death, and that just really fit the creepy feeling of the book, and the cover, which is so pretty! Loved it!

Loved this whole book, cover, plot, characters, everything! And if you haven't read it yet, I will metaphorically beat you with it until you do!!!!
