    Week 35. Waiting on Wednesday

    I wanted to commit to one book meme only. One that I can actually do (on a weekly basis), so I decided to pick “Waiting on Wednesday.” How it works, here: “Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event courtesy of Breaking the Spine that showcases much anticipated upcoming releases. Everneath by Brodi Ashton Expected publication: January 3rd 2012 Publisher: Harper Collins / Balzer + Bray) Format/Pages: Hardcover, 384 pages Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as—

    Ripple by Mandy Hubbard

    Title: Ripple Author: Mandy Hubbard Published: Juuly 21st 2011 by Razorbill/Penguin Rating: Hmmm… I think I pick the wrong book. But wait! Hold those thoughts, I didn’t mean this was a horrible book. It wasn’t good enough for me to change my mind about siren/mermaid stuff. Like zombies before (which thanks to Die for Me, I change my mind *coughs*Jules*coughs*) I wasn’t into this stuff. The idea of half human and half fish literally kinda turned me off. No offense—

    Finding Sky by Joss Stirling

    Title: Finding Sky Author: Joss Stirling Series: (Finding Sky #1) Published: October 7th 2010 by Oxford University Press Rating: I wasn’t planning to read this book—yet. As you may have noticed, my hands are already tied to two books. I was just flipping through pages and the next thing I knew I’m sucked in. I was really intrigued, so I decide to finish this book instead. And what do you know, I end up liking it. The concept of savant—

    The Underworld by Jessica Sorensen

    Title: The Underworld Author: Jessica Sorensen, Kristin Campbell Series: (Fallen Star #2) Published: July 30th 2011 by Createspace Rating: Diving in without remembering the first book, my reaction? I’m totally screwed. I think I said before the first book was forgettable. But I’m bit surprised that I actually, genuinely enjoyed the book. When I started the book I don’t have any clue what’s going on (or what happened) I know, shame on me. But while I don’t remembered the story—

    Sing Me to Sleep by Angela Morrison

    Title: Sing Me to Sleep Author: Angela Morrison Published: March 4th 2010 by Razorbill Rating: Where should I start? This book is one hell of an emotional ride for me. I laughed, I cringed, I smiled and I cried. And oh boy did I cry, I bawled like a baby. It never happened to me. I tear a little that’s all but this book wrenched my heart. It’s about loving your self. It’s about family, friends, music, love and most—

    A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

    Title: A Long, Long Sleep Author: Anna Sheehan Published: August 9th 2011 by Candlewick Rating: I hope I’m not the only one who thought it is a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. I mean, a girl sleeping for a long time woken by a kiss, that’s sound Sleeping Beauty to me. But it mentioned the fairytale a few times so I guess I’m not really that small-minded. No, seriously. I actually liked the book. I’m very picky with sci-fi books. It’s—

    Crave by Melinda Metz, Laura J. Burns

    Title: Crave Author: Melinda Metz, Laura J. Burns Series: (Crave #1) Published: September 21st 2010 by Simon & Schuster Rating: I was swayed by the promise of the summary that there’ll be loss, fangs, blood, and lust. Well, there were that, but it wasn’t exactly what I anticipated. I was intrigued by premise of the story. But it’s another case of the-summary-is-better-than-actual-story. I think the story was better in my head than it really was. Which is a shame considering—

    All You Desire by Kirsten Miller

    Title: All You Desire Author: Kirsten Miller Series: (Eternal Ones #2) Published: August 9th 2011 by Razorbill Rating: It took me longer than I thought, but no worries, I loved every minute of it. I have read positive reviews stating that this book bested its prequel. And they were right, it is down right awesome. I like twist and turn the author put in the story. It’s a play of who should I (we, readers) believe. I was really confused—

    Touch of Frost by Jennifer Estep

    Title: Touch of Frost Author: Jennifer Estep Series: (Mythos Academy #1) Published: July 26th 2011 by Kensington Publishing Corp. Rating: My sister and I share a lot in common, especially with books, like eight times out of ten. But this time our discrepancy shows. She likes this book, like 5 stars. Me? It’s average. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the book, but not as much as she does. But I actually see why she likes it. Gwen Frost—

    Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer

    Title: Wolfsbane Author: Andrea Cremer Series: (Nightshade #2) Published: July 2011 by Penguin Young Readers Group Rating: I was about to write this review last night. But I was so heartbroken yesterday because Tod didn’t win, and I couldn’t do anything (as in anything at all). Yeah, I was in state of shock. But like every contest there’s a winner and a loser. And like someone says there’s no losers, only delayed success. I’m so clinging to that notion, next—

    Caleb + Kate by Cindy Martinusen-Coloma

    Title: Caleb + Kate Author: Cindy Martinusen-Coloma Published: May 2010 by Thomas Nelson Rating: I’m not a big fan of love at first sight or whirlwind romance. Let’s face it isn’t realistic to invest such strong emotion on a person you hardly know, you just met. I’m very adamant about it, it’s not possible, not for me. Attraction, yes but love? Is just ain’t possible. So why did I say that, because this one have a sort of whirlwind romance,—

    Supernaturally by Kiersten White

    Title: Supernaturally Author: Kiersten White Series: (Paranormalcy #2) Published: July 2011 by HarperTeen Rating: I think I’m not the only one who noticed that’s there something really wrong with this book. It’s not wrong in a terrible way, wrong in a disappointing way. I’m very vocal on how much I love Paranormalcy. It was a fun read. But this one, hmm… it still does have the quirks and antics of the first book, but I felt something is missing. Like—
