Review: Glow (Sky Chasers #1)

Glow (Sky Chasers #1)
Amy Kathleen Ryan

Published By: Macmillan
Publication Date: October 7, 2011
Date Read: September 28, 2011
Genre: YA - Science Fiction / Dystopia
Source: Review copy from Publishers
Format: Paperback
Pages: 307

From Goodreads:
What if you were bound for a new world, about to pledge your life to someone you'd been promised to since birth, and one unexpected violent attack made survival—not love—the issue?

Out in the murky nebula lurks an unseen enemy: the New Horizon. On its way to populate a distant planet in the wake of Earth's collapse, the ship's crew has been unable to conceive a generation to continue its mission. They need young girls desperately, or their zealous leader's efforts will fail. Onboard their sister ship, the Empyrean, the unsuspecting families don't know an attack is being mounted that could claim the most important among them...

Fifteen-year-old Waverly is part of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space; she was born on the Empyrean, and the large farming vessel is all she knows. Her concerns are those of any teenager—until Kieran Alden proposes to her. The handsome captain-to-be has everything Waverly could ever want in a husband, and with the pressure to start having children, everyone is sure he's the best choice. Except for Waverly, who wants more from life than marriage—and is secretly intrigued by the shy, darkly brilliant Seth.

But when the Empyrean faces sudden attack by their assumed allies, they quickly find out that the enemies aren't all from the outside.

Glow is the most riveting series debut since The Hunger Games, and promises to thrill and challenge readers of all ages.

First of all I wanna say a huge thank you to Macmillan Publishing for providing a review copy of this book. As soon as I heard about it and saw the cover I wanted to read it so I was so excited when I received it for review.
I was unsure how much I would like this book as I have never read a book that is set in space before but I thought the storyline sounded really promising so as really excited to find out what it would be like. I am really glad I read it and am happy that it is my first book set in space as I loved it. I can't wait to read some more science-fiction/dystopian-type books like this as I loved it so much.

Waverly and Kieran have been together for a long time and they are the golden couple on their spaceship. No-one is surprised when Kieran proposes and the whole ship is overjoyed. However before Waverly can become comfortable with the idea she is taken by a sister-ship The New Horizon along with all of the other girls. Waverly is strong and she will do whatever is takes to protect the other girls and find their way back home. Kieran is distraught at having been separated from Waverly and has to find a way to be strong for the rest of the boys and learn to take over the ship.

I really loved this story, I thought it was amazing and I can't wait to read the rest of the series and find out what will happen next.
I became really attached to the characters which really surprised me. The book is wrote in a third person narrative but it shows the perspectives of both Waverly and Kieran so you can see what is happening on both ships. Usually in third person narratives I don't find myself getting as attached to the characters as I do in first person narrative books however I really loved it. I loved seeing things from both views and as the events unfolded you could understand the actions of the characters because of the circumstances they are in.

This story is surprising and shocking and horrifying in places but you can't put it down. Once I got into the story I found I couldn't put it down. I was horrified by the people on the New Horizon and what they were doing and I was always guessing what they were planning to do.
This is a amazing unputdownable book and I am so excited to find out what will happen. I loved the ending and it left me reeling for more. I will definitely be reading the rest of this series.

Wuthering Bites by Sarah Gray

I received this for my birthday in May from Amber at the Paranormal Romance & Urban Fantasy Fanatics Group on Goodreads. I love Wuthering Heights and I have read it about 7 times it's one of my favourite books ever and I just love paranormal so mixing the two is like the perfect book for me. I can't wait to read this.

From Goodreads:
What if the enigmatic hero of one of our most timeless love stories was part vampire? The answer lies in this haunting retelling of the classic tale of Catherine and Heathcliff, kindred spirits bound by a turbulent—and now forbidden—passion...
When a young orphan named Heathcliff is brought to Wuthering Heights by the manor's owner, Mr. Earnshaw, rumors abound. Yet the truth is more complicated than anyone could guess. Heathcliff's mother was a member of a gypsy band that roamed the English countryside, slaying vampires to keep citizens safe. But his father was a vampire. Now, even as Heathcliff gallantly fights the monsters who roam the moors in order to protect beautiful, spirited Catherine Earnshaw, he is torn by compassion for his victims—and by his own dark thirst.
Though Catherine loves Heathcliff, she fears the vampire in him, and is tempted by the privileged lifestyle their neighbors, the Lintons, enjoy. Forced to choose between wealthy, refined Edgar Linton and the brooding, increasingly dangerous Heathcliff, she makes a fateful decision. And soon Heathcliff, too, must choose—between his hunger, and the woman he will love for all eternity...

Cover and Blurb Reveal: Touch by Jus Accardo

Official Blurb:

When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.
Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation—an organization devoted to collecting “special” kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons—his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they’re caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.

A secret Kale will kill to protect.

I cannot wait to read this, it sound absolutely amazing and I am super excited that I have received an ARC for review. I will be reading it in the next couple of weeks so look out for the review.

Review: Fateful

Claudia Gray

Published By: Harper Teen
Publication Date: September 13, 2011
Date Read: September 25, 2011
Genre: YA - Paranormal Romance
Source: Bought
Format: Hardback
Pages: 328

From Goodreads:
In Fateful, eighteen-year-old maid Tess Davies is determined to escape the wealthy, overbearing family she works for. Once the ship they’re sailing on reaches the United States, she’ll strike out on her own. Then she meets Alec, a handsome first-class passenger who captivates her instantly. But Alec has secrets....

Soon Tess will learn just how dark Alec’s past truly is. The danger they face is no ordinary enemy: werewolves are real and they’re stalking him—and now Tess, too. Her growing love for Alec will put Tess in mortal peril, and fate will do the same before their journey on the Titanic is over.

Featuring the opulent backdrop of the Titanic, Fateful’s publication is poised to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the ship’s doomed maiden voyage. It is sure to be a hit among Titanic buffs and fans of paranormal romance alike.

I honestly had no idea how I was going to feel about this book. I instantly thought it would be something that I would enjoy. I am a huge fan of the story of Titanic and I love paranormal books so a story that mixed the Titanic and werewolves sounds like the perfect book for me. Yet I was still very reluctant to start this book. I think this is mainly because I have read the first 2 books in Claudia's Evernight series and I wasn't a big fan of them so I was unsure how I would feel about another of her books. Also I have been in a reading rut and every book I started I couldn't really get into it. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I absolutely loved this book. I am so glad I decided to pick it up and I could definitely read this book again and again.

Tess is a servent girl for a wealthy family moving to America via the Titanic. She can't wait to get to America and start a new life. She doesn't expect to start falling for one of the wealthiest passengers on board and she certainly doesn't count on getting sucked into his dark world. Alec is a werewolf. He hates what he is and he can't wait to get to America and start a new isolated life alone where he can deal with his problem without being a burden to his family. When he meets Tess he is amazed how the servant girl can make his feel, hopeful about the future. But can both survive the journey that all readers know is doomed?

I loved this book. I loved it right from the first few pages. I loved seeing the Titanic through a servant's eyes and I think this is a very fresh twist on the story. Tess is such a great character. She is strong and hopeful and when faced with danger she is not a whiney character who would sit and cry she is strong and she used her brain to try and sort through the problem. She wants to save everyone, especially Alec and the family she serves even though most of them threat her like crap.
I loved Alec. He is the character that every girl will fall for. He is the good guy who just wants a normal life but he has this dark force inside of him that he is desperately trying to overcome and keep his humanity.

Throughout the book I got so distracted by the werewolf part of the story and the fights between the evil werewolf and Alec and Tess that I would almost forget that they are aboard the titanic. I got about 80% through and then it dawned on me that nothing in the memorable Titanic story had happened and started to think surely they should have hit the ice berg by now. When they did I wasn't surprised, we were all expecting it and it was impossible for it not to happen. However that did not stop me crying my eyes out.
This book had me crying so hard, I was praying for a happy ending for Alec and Tess and I really couldn't see it happening which made me cry even more.
This is definitely a heart-wrenching story, I was laughing and happy with the relationships between the characters one minute and just heartbroken and sobbing the next.

This is one of the best books I have read in a while and it has definitely got me out of my reading rut. I will definitely re-read this book again and again and I can't wait to see what Claudia Grey will come up with next.
If you were not a fan of her Evernight series don't write all of her other books off as this surpassed that so much and I am so glad I read it.

Note on IMM

Hey guys,
I've mentioned a few times that I am on Project 10 (P10) where I can buy one book for every 10 that I read. This is why I have not had many books the last few weeks only ones sent to me from friends and publishers. I am going to keep doing P10 until I have significantly reduced my to-read list because it is actually ridiculous. Last check there was over 300.

Well I have about 100 pages left of my 10th book in round 1 of P10 so I am going to by my prize book tomorrow. I have received quite a few books this week for bookshares, travelling books, from publishers and a couple RAKs. I will definitely be doing a IMM video this week but I am going to leave it until tomorrow so I can add the prize book in it rather than doing it now and then next week having 1 book to picture if I don't get any more.

So IMM will not be posted today, it'll be a little late but it will definitely be up in the next couple of days, hopefully tomorrow.

Cover Reveal: If I Die (UK Edition)

If I Die is the fifth book in Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series. The UK Cover has just been revealed.
I have read the first book in this series and am about to start book 2 in a couple of days. I love this series so far, I think it's great and I love both the US and the UK covers. I love this cover, I love how it has the white smoke to match all the other UK covers and I just think it's beautiful.

From Goodreads:

Graceling (The Seven Kingdoms #1) by Kristin Cashore

I bought this book so long ago and have heard such amazing things. I still haven't read it and I can't wait to read after friends have read it and loved it.

From Goodreads:
Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight—she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug.

When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change. She never expects to become Po’s friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace—or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away . . . a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.

With elegant, evocative prose and a cast of unforgettable characters, debut author Kristin Cashore creates a mesmerizing world, a death-defying adventure, and a heart-racing romance that will consume you, hold you captive, and leave you wanting more.

Obsidian Excerpt

Last week I posted the cover of Jennifer L. Armentrout's new nover Obsidian.
Well now here is an exclusive excerpt.

Eyes still on me, he tipped his desk forward even further. "Guess what?"
"I checked out your blog."
Oh. Dear. Baby. Jesus. How did he find it? Wait. More importantly was the fact that he hadfound it. Was my blog now googleable? That was awesome sauce with an extra heaping of sauce. "Stalking me again, I see. Do I need to get a restraining order?"
"In your dreams, kitten." He smirked. "Oh wait, I'm already starring in those, aren't I?"
I rolled my eyes. "Nightmares, Daemon. Nightmares."

Want to read it?????
Well why not pre-order it?

Chain Reaction (Perfect Chemistry #3)
Simone Elkeles

Published By: Bloomsbury
Publication Date: August 16, 2011
Date Read: September 18, 2011
Genre: YA - Contemporary Romance
Source: Bought
Format: Hardback
Pages: 308

From Goodreads:
Luis Fuentes has always been sheltered from the gang violence that nearly destroyed his brothers’ lives. But that didn’t stop him from taking risks—whether he’s scaling a mountain in the Rockies or dreaming of a future as an astronaut, Luis can’t stop looking for the next thrill.

Nikki Cruz lives her life by three rules—boys lie to get their way, don’t trust a boy who says “I love you,” and never date a boy from the south side of Fairfield. Her parents may be from Mexico, but as a doctor’s daughter, she has more in common with her north-side neighbors than the Latino Blood at her school. Then she meets Luis at Alex’s wedding, and suddenly, she’s tempted to break all her rules.

Getting Nikki to take a chance on a southsider is Luis’s biggest challenge, until he finds himself targeted by Chuy Soto, the new head of the Latino Blood. When Chuy reveals a disturbing secret about Luis’s family, the youngest Fuentes finds himself questioning everything he’s ever believed to be true. Will his feelings for Nikki be enough to stop Luis from entering a dark and violent world and permanently living on the edge?

I was really excited to start Chain Reaction as I loved the first 2 books in this series so much but at the same time I was a little reluctant. I had heard that this one wasn't as good as the first 2 and that it was a let down and I love this series so much I really didn't want to be let down by it. I really don't know what those people were thinking. I was not let down at all. I loved Chain Reaction and read it in 1 day as I did with the others.

Luis, the youngest Fuentes brother has always been the one with high hopes and big dreams for his future. He has never been interested in gang activity like his older brothers but when his family is threatened he will do anything to protect them even if it means that he has to throw away his life and his dreams in the process.
Nikki has had her heartbroken, she doesn't trust guys and never wants to fall in love. Then she meets Luis and can't deny the chemistry between them. She swears she will never be involved with someone in a gang but she can't deny she is falling for Luis. Will Luis be able to protect his family and find a way to be with Nikki and will Nikki listen to her heard or her heart?

I absolutely loved this book. True the storyline was very similar to those of the previous books. Every one of the Fuentes brothers have ended up being involved in gangs because of necessity not because of choice, but each is different and I love seeing their relationships develop with the girls. I love how you still get to see what happens to the characters from the two previous books.
I can't praise these books enough I love them, I love the characters and I will re-read these books again and again. They are the first young-adult chic lit/contemporary romance books that I have loved and I can't wait to read more. I love Simone Elkeles writing and her stories are incredible so I can't wait to read more books of hers.
The first book in this series will always be my favourite but I am in no way disappointed with any of the others. I thought they were both incredible and I loved all of them.

I am so happy by the ending but I'm so sad to see this series come to a close. I really hope that Simone writes books about the brothers children as I would love to read that.
Another great book by Simone and I can't wait to read her other books.

Cover Reveal: Insurgent (Divergent #2)

The cover of Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth has finally been revealed. I absolutely love it, I think it's so beautiful and I love how similar it looks to the first one.

From Goodreads:
One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.

Ill Wind (Weather Wardens #1) by Rachel Caine

I bought this series after reading Rachel's other series The Morganville Vampires, which I absolutely loved. I have the first 6 or 7 in this series and I still have to read the first one, I hope to read this series soon as I absolutely love Rachel's books and she is one of my favourite UF authors.

From Goodreads:

Her only hope is Lewis, the most powerful warden known. Unfortunately, he's stolen not one but three bottles of Djinn-making him the most wanted man on earth. Still, she's racing hard to find him-before the bad weather closes in fast...

Review: Juliet Immortal (Juliet Immortal #1)

Juliet Immortal (Juliet Immortal #1)
Stacey Jay

Published By: Delacorte Press
Publication Date: August 9, 2011
Date Read: September 14, 2011
Genre: YA - Retelling
Format: Hardback
Pages: 307

From Goodreads:

"These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume."
—Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

The most tragic love story in history . . .

Juliet Capulet didn't take her own life. She was murdered by the person she trusted most, her new husband, Romeo Montague, a sacrifice made to ensure his own immortality. But what Romeo didn't anticipate was that Juliet would be granted eternity, as well, and would become an agent for the Ambassadors of Light. For 700 years, she's fought Romeo for the souls of true lovers, struggling to preserve romantic love and the lives of the innocent. Until the day she meets someone she's forbidden to love, and Romeo, oh Romeo, will do everything in his power to destroy that love.

I was really reluctant to start reading this as I am such a huge Shakespeare fan and have read and love Romeo and Juliet too many times to count. Before starting 'Juliet Immortal' I had heard people who hated the play loved this and people who loved the play hated it so I was really reluctant to start it but I was not disappointed whatesoever. I love this book, I think it's a great twist on the tragic love story and I couldn't put it down.

Juliet Capulet did not kill herself for love as so many people think. The love of her life Romeo Montague murdered her so he could be granted eternal life. What he did not count on was Juliet coming back as well. For centuries they have battled with each other, Juliet fighting to save love and soul mates, Romeo trying to destroy it. But when Juliet finds another soulmate Romeo will do everything in his power to make sure they do not have a happy ending.

I instantly fell in love with this storyline. At first I was really curious as to how the story was going to progress but I loved it within a couple of chapters. Before reading this book I could never have imagined Romeo evil and before reading wasn't sure how I felt about an evil Romeo. Romeo was one of the first fictional characters that I loved and I loved his so much and his and Juliet's story is one of my favourites so no way could I imagine him being evil. However it is impossible for you to love Romeo in this story. He is an evil, manipulative character and I loathed him throughout the book. I never imagined hating Romeo but it is not difficult in this book.

I really loved the end of the book, I think it was a great ending and I really hope there is going to be a second book about what happened to Romeo. It is completely true that I hated Romeo but near the end I started to really feel for him, I started to like him a bit more and understand his actions a little more. At the end of the book I had mixed feelings I would like him one minute and then he's do something horrid and I would hate him again. I really hope there will be a second book so we can see what happens and hope that he can get a happy ending like Juliet.

When I heard about this book I thought it was going to be another love story but with someone else, and yes there is a love story in the book but I never imagined it would be as dark as it was. There were some really dark scenes in it which really surprised me but I loved it. Stacey Jay is an amazing author and her writing hooked me in right away. I just love her writing style and I can't wait to read some more of her work.
