Before I Wake (Soul Screamers #6) by Rachel Vincent Expected publication: June 26th 2012 Publisher: Harlequin Teen Format/Pages: Paperback, 304 pages I died on a Thursday—killed by a monster intent on stealing my soul.

    Week 09. What’s on my Reading List?

    It’s Monday (it’s alreday Tuesday, I’m late. Waaaah! again, time to set my reading priorities. This is a weekly meme featured here—on my blog, where I present you the books I’m planning to read for the entire week. I decided to do this in order to declutter my ever piling TBR. Eeeep! I’m done with The Catastrophic History of You and Me. Review is already up. I even managed to squish Winter Longing (because I sort of dropped Incarnate in—

    The Catastrophic History of You and Me

    Author: Jess Rothenberg Published: February 21st 2012 by Penguin Young Readers Group Rating: I completely agree when Lauren Oliver described this book as gorgeous, funny and heartbreaking. Because The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg is all that…and more. Well, you read the blurb right? Yes, she died from heartbreak. I mean literally. Nope, not kidding here, after her boyfriend said that he didn’t love her—as she described the four worst words in the English language. She—

    Winter Longing

    Author: Tricia Mills Published: August 12th 2010 by Razorbill (first published August 5th 2010) Rating: After that energy consuming, patience tester, Bloodrose, I need something light to read, something that will wash away all these negative emotions I have so I immediately picked up Winter Longing in the heaps of books on my reading list. Hoping that this one will do help me with my goal. And I’m glad I did pick it up, it was really a nice book.—

    Bloodrose

    Author: Andrea Cremer Series: (Nightshade #3) Published: January 3rd 2012 by Philomel Rating: I want to start by saying I liked Nightshade. I even liked Wolfsbane for whatever mess it was. This series started strong but unfortunately it fizzled out. While Ren’s situation weighs so much on how I rated this book, it wasn’t the only factor I considered. The story itself was disappointing. I, like most of you, also did not like the ending. Probably the one and half—

    Torn

    Author: Amanda Hocking Series: (Trylle Trilogy #2) Expected publication: February 28th 2012 by St. Martin’s Press (first published November 1st 2010) Rating: I never expected to see Torn in our bookshelf this early, some bookstores here shelved books ahead of their publication date. It’s not really that early since this one was already published in digital format before. What can I say? To be honest I don’t have any significant thing to say, so this is going to be just—

    Week 8. Waiting on Wednesday

    It’s Wednesday again. What book/s are you looking forward to reading? “Waiting on” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that showcases much awaited upcoming releases. What’s Left of Me by Kat Zhang Expected publication: September 18th 2012 Publisher: HarperTeen Format/Pages: Hardcover (First Edition), 336 pages NEVER LET ME GO meets HIS DARK MATERIALS in a beautiful, haunting YA debut, the first book in The Hybrid Trilogy. Eva and Addie live in a world where everyone is—

    Week 08. What’s on my Reading List?

    It’s Monday again, time to set my reading priorities. This is a weekly meme featured here—on my blog, where I present you the books I’m planning to read for the entire week. I decided to do this in order to declutter my ever piling TBR. Hopefully I can finish this set by the end of the week. I’m waaaay behind schedule. PS. I can’t believe it. I’m reading Bloodrose. I think my heart is prepared…for the worst.

    Goddess Interrupted

    Author: Aimee Carter Series: (Goddess Test #2) Expected publication: March 27th 2012 by HarlequinTeen Rating: I received an eARC from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley. Thank you. And it ended when things were starting to get interesting. I have only read three books with the same theme and my bet as my favorite so far is always The Goddess Test. I think her adaptation of the popular mythology was easier for me to follow. As I said before I didn’t mind the—

    Under the Never Sky

    Author: Veronica Rossi Series: (Under the Never Sky #1) Published: Published January 3rd 2012 by HarperCollins Rating: Is it strange that I completely agree with the negative reviews and yet I rated it entirely the opposite? And here peeps is another case of reasons-be-damned because I liked this book. Yes, yes, there are things here that I normally would have complained and questioned (did too much science disregard the knowledge of human physiology, Aria?) but I discounted logic because hey,—

    Week 6. Waiting on Wednesday

The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda Expected publication: May 8th 2012 Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin Format/Pages: Hardcover (First USA Edition); 304 pages “A book that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let go. “The Hunt “is both terrifying and sublime, with every page evoking that fragile, yet unyielding thing we call humanity.” – Andrea Cremer, “New York Times “bestselling author of the—

    Everneath

    Author: Brodi Ashton Series: (Everneath #1) Published: January 24th 2012 by Harper Collins / Balzer + Bray Rating: There’s a reason why I prefer The Goddess Test over Abandon. And apparently same reason applies in Everneath. I was really disappointed that I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hope for. But it wasn’t exactly a bad read. It is just…the entertaining factor wasn’t there. I’m grasping for words right now…what did I like? What didn’t work for me? Even—

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) by Julie Kagawa Hardcover, 304 pages Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by Harlequin Teen You will kill. The only question is when. In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs.
