    If I Die by Rachel Vincent

    Title: If I Die Author: Rachel Vincent Series: (Soul Screamers #5) Published: September 27th 2011 by Harlequin Rating: This is probably the hardest review to write ever. I’m still taking everything in. Yes, as in everything in this book is made of deliciously well plotted scenes, undeniably awesome characters *coughs* Tod *coughs* and heart stopping revelation that still shocked me until now. After I read it, I have this strong urge to reread it immediately, that’s how addicting it is.—

    Swoon by Nina Malkin

    Title: Swoon Author: Nina Malkin Series: (Swoon #1) Published: May 19th 2009 by Simon Pulse Rating: I think I deserve a pat in the back, or chocolates, or candy and confetti!! Because guys, I DID IT! I finished this book—and it was a horrible reading experience. Not to be mean or anything (that’s not really my thing), but the reviewers were right it was truly not a good book. I kinda have a vague idea of what I’m about to—

    Crave by Melissa Darnell

    Title: Crave Author: Melissa Darnell Series: (The Clann #1) Expected publication: October 18th 2011 by Harlequin Teen Rating: I received an eARC from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley. Thank you. It’s my second time to read a book that the heroine is a hybrid sort of specie (vampire + witch to be exact), in a Romeo and Juliet-esque love affair. And to my delight, I ended up liking this book. I’m not gonna dwell too much on the “original” aspect (because definitely—

    Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park

    Title: Flat-Out Love Author: Jessica Park Published: May 18th 2011 by Jessica Park Rating: Before I start my blabbering, let’s meet the essential members of the Watkin’s family. Fin – The oldest son. The adventurous, fun-loving, suave and ultimately charming guy. Currently—according to the family—is traveling around the world. Doing good deeds one country at a time. My assessment: Hottie, but too virtual. Matthew – The middle son. The smart kid, and as Julie said is more fascinated with megabytes,—

    Goliath by Scott Westerfeld

    Title: Goliath Author: Scott Westerfeld Series: (Leviathan #3) Published: September 20th 2011 by Simon Pulse Rating: Ok, guys let’s give Mr. Westerfeld a big round of applause for a stellar ending for his amazing series. Goliath delivered everything I hoped the book would be! I couldn’t be much happier with the result! I do have mixed feelings, I’m happy that the book ended in a happier note, but at same time sad that the adventures of Deryn and Alek in—

    Addison Blakely: Confessions of a PK by Betsy St. Amant

    Title: Addison Blakely: Confessions of a PK Author: Betsy St. Amant Expected publication: January 1st 2012 by Barbour Publishing Rating: I received an eARC from Barbour Publishing via Netgalley. Thank you. I admit, I was expecting a very different story. But in a way I’m really happy that it wasn’t what I initially thought. Was it a good thing? Yes. A big yes actually. I’m glad that the book has more depth than just a story of a goody two shoes—

    Past Perfect by Leila Sales

    Title: Past Perfect Author: Leila Sales Expected publication: October 4th 2011 by Simon Pulse Rating: I received an eARC from Simon & Schuster via their Galley Grab program. Thank you. I’m not sure if this book was originally in my to-read list, I just downloaded it to see if my galleygrab is now working. Well, it works (hooray!) but since I missed this month’s newsletter I decided to check the galley links that are floating around. I saw the link in—

    Life Eternal by Yvonne Woon

    Title: Life Eternal by Yvonne Woon Author: Yvonne Woon Series: (Dead Beautiful #2) Expected publication: February 24th 2012 by Disney-Hyperion Rating: I received an eARC from Disney-Hyperion via Netgalley. Thank you. I really like Dead Beautiful, so guess what my reaction was when I saw this on netgalley. I’m so ecstatic, thrilled beyond words. I hit the request button and the next thing I knew, it was on my homepage waiting for me download and read it. And for the verdict?—

    Numbers by Rachel Ward

    Title: Numbers Author: Rachel Ward Series: (Numbers #1) Published: February 1st 2010 by Chicken House/Scholastic Inc. Rating: I noticed that most people picked this up because of the unique concept of “numbers.” You see, the main character here Jem can see numbers on people’s eyes. She didn’t know what it means until her mother died. That the numbers she saw are death date. Totally different from the others, the concept isn’t new to me. It is very similar to Death—

    The Hidden by Jessica Verday

    Title: The Hidden Author: Jessica Verday Series: (The Hollow #3) Published: September 6th 2011 by Simon Pulse Rating: What a sad way to end a trilogy. I’ll have you know I both loved The Hollow and The Haunted. But I can’t say that to The Hidden. I felt half empty to be perfectly honest. When I finish the book, I felt so unsatisfied. Like “is that it?” “Is that all?” It took three books, only to end it where it—

    He’s So Not Worth It by Kieran Scott

    Title: He’s So Not Worth Author: Kieran Scott Series: (He’s So/She’s So Trilogy #2) Published: June 7th 2011 by Simon & Schuster Rating: I have to check at least three times, just to make sure I am reading the right book. I want to take down my review of She’s So Dead to Us because this book had me disappointed. Well, not really that huge disappointment but it turned one hundred eighty on me. My opinion on characters and story—

    She’s So Dead to Us by Kieran Scott

    Title: She’s So Dead to Us Author: Kieran Scott Series: (He’s So/She’s So Trilogy #1) Published: May 25th 2010 by Simon & Schuster Rating: My first impression? Honestly? Typical high school antics mix with family drama. I’m not expecting a lot so I’m super surprised to enjoy the book this much. I freaking love it! Who cares if the story sounds familiar! The important thing it was super good. Once I’m done I wanted to read the second book already,—

    There You’ll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones

    Title: There You’ll Find Me Author: Jenny B. Jones Published: October 4th 2011 by Thomas Nelson Rating: I received an eARC from Thomas Nelson via Netgalley. Thank you. I wanted to read this book so when I saw this book up on netgalley, I couldn’t deny the temptation. I requested it in a heartbeat. And I’m so glad I was approved. I do admit that it didn’t entirely meet my expectations, needless to say it was still a good and refreshing—

    The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen

    Title: The Mephisto Covenant Author: Trinity Faegen Series: (The Mephisto Covenant #1) Published: September 27th 2011 by EgmontUSA Rating: I received an eARC from EgmontUSA via Netgalley. Thank you. I wasn’t initially gonna read this, I open my reader to read Life Eternal and I noticed that this galley was about to expire. So I thought why just read it now, it feels kinda waste if I didn’t read it (and just let it expires). I was overwhelmed before when I—

    Soul Thief by Jana Oliver

    Title: Soul Thief Author: (The Demon Trappers #2) Series: Jana Oliver Published: August 30th 2011 by St. Martin’s Griffin Rating: I don’t know where to begin. This is one of the books I’ve been dying to read but at the same time I also don’t want to read. You know what I’m saying? Ugh! It’s so complicated. I shouldn’t have asked my sister for spoilers. BUT asking for the spoilers did not ruin it for me, but I’m kinda dreading—
