    Week 44: Cover Crazy

    Monday is for Book Covers. Absolutely gorgeous book covers! Cover Crazy is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Worms. The purpose of the meme is to admire, appreciate (or lust) on stunning book covers. Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth Expected publication: May 1st 2012 by HarperCollins Children’s Books I loved book covers. Sometimes (more often actually) I shelved books solely for its gorgeous, captivating, enticing covers. This meme doesn’t reflect my TBR list, I just appreciate a beautiful—

    Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson

    Title: Hunting Lila Author: Sarah Alderson Series: (Lila #1) Published: August 4th 2011 by Simon and Schuster UK Rating: If you liked Kim Harrington’s Clarity, you will also like Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson. Although I prefer the former than the latter. But just like Clarity, it has a decent amount of mystery, science fiction, paranormal and of course, romance—didn’t I tell you with my last review that’s one of my requirements. Now you know. 😉 But sadly I wasn’t—

    Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

    Title: Dearly, Departed Author: Lia Habel Series: (Dearly #1) Published: October 18th 2011 by Random House Publishing Group Rating: So, Dearly Departed is a book about zombies. Not Die for Me zombies. Not Dead Beautiful zombies either. They’re zombies, zombies. In the truest sense of the word. Yes, they are the dead then reanimated creatures, the flesh craving ones, the missing limbs ones, the rotting tissues the whole shebang—in short, the living corpse! Yikes! (No offense to the zombies) I’m—

    Week 43. Waiting on Wednesday

    I decided to commit to several book meme. Ones that I can actually do on a weekly basis and one of them is “Waiting on Wednesday.” So, how it works, here: “Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly event courtesy of Breaking the Spine that showcases much anticipated upcoming releases. Until I Die (Revenants #2) by Amy Plum Expected publication: May 3rd 2012 Publisher: HarperTeen Format/Pages: Hardcover, N/A Kate has chosen to leave the comfort and safety of her human world—

    Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey

    Title: Cold Kiss Author: Amy Garvey Published: September 20th 2011 by HarperTeen Rating: Initially, the book reminded me of Banished (by Sophie Littlefield) but in that book it was the heroine’s sister that brought her dead lover back to life. Also it was just one part of the story; in this book’s case, it was its main plot. Wren reanimated her boyfriend, but there’s a huge consequences of what she did. Even if she did it for love. It was—

    Week 43: Cover Crazy

    Monday is for Book Covers. Absolutely gorgeous book covers! Cover Crazy is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Worms. The purpose of the meme is to admire, appreciate (or lust) on stunning book covers. The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour Expected publication: February 16th 2012 by Dutton Juvenile I loved book covers. Sometimes (more often actually) I shelved books solely for its gorgeous, captivating, enticing covers. This meme doesn’t reflect my TBR list, I just appreciate a beautiful book cover—

    Awake at Dawn by C.C. Hunter

    Title: Awake at Dawn Author: C.C. Hunter Series: (Shadow Falls #2) Published: October 11th 2011 by St. Martin’s Griffin Rating: This should be two stars because there’s not enough Lucas here! It was unfair. Nah, just kidding. Awake at Dawn, for me, wasn’t a very solid sequel that being said I still enjoyed it regardless. My concern was there were not enough in this book—information wise. ‘Til now my questions when Born at Midnight concluded are still the same questions—

    Week 42. Friday’s Music & Quotes!

    Friday is for music, quotes and of course books! I haven’t perfected the art of listening to music and reading a book at the same time. But that didn’t stop me to incorporate songs to books. If movies have soundtrack, why can’t books? It’s a bi-monthly (because it’s hard y’know but if I’m feeling diligent I might do it regularly) meme I come up with. Pick a book, select your fave quote and choose a lyrics from a song that—

    All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin

    Title: All These Things I’ve Done Author: Gabrielle Zevin Series: (Birthright #1) Published: September 6th 2011 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux Rating: Call me thick but I would never in a gazillion years will think that this book is about mafia based solely on the cover. The huge floating chocolate heart doesn’t give you the impression, no? But when I read the summary I was really, really interested. People from the flip side knew I have a sort of fascination—

    Monday is for Book Covers. Absolutely gorgeous book covers! Cover Crazy is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Worms. The purpose of the meme is to admire, appreciate (or lust) on stunning book covers. The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg Expected publication: February 21st 2012 by Penguin Young Readers Group I loved book covers.

    Everblue by Brenda Pandos

    Title: Everblue Author: Brenda Pandos Series: (Mer Tales #1) Published: July 30th 2011 by Obsidian Mountain Publishing Rating: Holy kraken!! This book took me by surprise! I should have picked this book instead of Ripple because it just so darn good. I stayed up so late (like early morning late) just to finish this. It’s one of those you just couldn’t put it down because you want more of it! And I said before, I ain’t (as in neveeeer) a—

    Tempest by Julie Cross

    Title: Tempest Author: Julie Cross Series: (Tempest #1) Expected publication: January 3rd 2012 by St. Martin’s Griffin Rating: I received an eARC from St. Martin’s Griffin via Netgalley. Thank you. I’m quite selective with time traveling as the book’s subject. But when I read the summary it fascinatingly piqued my interest. So I decided to give it a try, I mean, I’m not essentially avoiding them. Besides, Timeless worked for me (though I’m banking more on the romance rather the time—

    Eve by Anna Carey

    Title: Eve Author: Anna Carey Series: (Eve #1) Published: October 4th 2011 by HarperTeen Rating: I can’t pinpoint exactly which ones that did work for me. Yet, I can firmly say that I liked it. Eve wasn’t specifically bad as I thought it would be. I did enjoy it. However, I felt like the story decided to throw all other dystopian themes that had been tackled in other books. Example? The presence of a repressive and controlled government born out—

    A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker

    Title: A Match Made in High School Author: Kristin Walker Published: February 4th 2010 by Razorbill Rating: Frankly, Marriage Ed? Not gonna happen. Ever. I think there are far more pressing issues educators must tackle first before snooping around on marriage statistics. But I kinda liked it, so I’m putting aside that fact. Besides, the real reason I wanted to read this was because of that. Forcing senior students to a ‘marriage’ class? What a ridiculous but interesting idea. I—
