    Personal Demons

    Author: Lisa Desrochers Series: (Personal Demons #1) Published: September 14th 2010 Publisher: Tor Teen Categories: Paranormal, Urban-Fantasy Rating: This book is flawed. And the worst part of it, I actually kinda liked it. The beginning of the book was my favorite part. It promises me that if I continue on I’ll get a special surprise. I just didn’t get the surprise. Because there’s no surprise to begin with. Re: Heaven VS. Hell This book received mixed reviews, some loved it,—

    Timepiece

    Author: Myra McEntire Series: (Hourglass #2) Expected publication: June 12th 2012 Publisher: Egmont USA Categories: Science Fiction, Fantasy Rating: I received an eARC from Egmont USA via Netgalley. Thank you. There’s something wrong with me. You see, I didn’t enjoy the book as much as I hoped for. And that’s a huge deal because Timepiece is told from my favorite character’s point of view. I don’t exactly love the first book. It was ok. It was entertaining enough to continue. So—

    Arranged: A Novel

    Author: Catherine McKenzie Published: May 15th 2012 by (first published January 8th 2011) Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I’m on chick-lit mode right now, three books in a row. Arranged is something I wouldn’t normally read. For starters, it’s not young-adult. But I need a break (from YA), and for the record it’s not that I don’t read adult chick-lit. In fact, I read romance books every time (tagalog ones, they’re chick-lit right? I loved those light-hearted,—

    Temptation

    Author: Karen Ann Hopkins Series: (Temptation #1) Expected publication: June 26th 2012 Publisher: Harlequin Teen Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I received an eARC from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley. Thank you. He’s Amish. She’s not. Being together should be impossible… That got me. I wasn’t planning on reading this book, but who wouldn’t be intrigued. The line offers something right up on my alley, romance wise. Starcrossed lovers? Yes, please. So next thing I knew I just hit the request button—

    Pushing the Limits

    Author: Katie McGarry Expected publication: 31 July 2012 Publisher: Harlequin Teen Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I received an eARC from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley. Thank you. I confess, at first I was sold by the story of a bad boy meets (fragile) good girl. I smell romance, a la Perfect Chemistry. And the idea of two people that needs fixing. I don’t know why, but I crave those. Makes me wonder if it’s possible for two people carrying emotional baggage—

    Of Poseidon

    Author: Anna Banks Series: (Of Poseidon #1) Published: May 22nd 2012 by Feiwel & Friends Rating: I’m not sure if the number of books I’ve read of this these kinds that I easily figured it out what Emma was. From the get-go I know she was a half, which was the reason why she has this ability and at the same time still has human qualities (I just didn’t like how it play around the fact, how it held back—

    The Forsaken

    Author: Lisa M. Stasse Series: (The Forsaken #1) Expected publication: July 10th 2012 by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers Rating: I received an eARC from Simon & Schuster via their Galley Grab program. Thank you. Nothing beats the feeling of satisfaction after reading the book you expected to be awesome. I’ve been eyeing this baby for a while and lo and behold it was on galley grab. I didn’t know it was within my reach (this early). I was—

    Obsidian

    Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout Series: (Lux #1) Published: May 15th 2012 by Entangled Teen (first published January 1st 2011) Rating: I don’t go for ETs. I stay far, far away (just like their homeland) from any material that involved them. But hot Hungarian models + rave reviews did it for me. But as usual and I’m not completely into it (as expected). I think I liked the Covenant series better. And just like her other series I also saw similarities—

    While He Was Away

    Author: Karen Schreck Published: May 1st 2012 by Sourcebooks Fire Rating: I tried to like this book. But in the end, we didn’t get along. I don’t have a huge expectations with While He Was Away, I just wanted a light read, maybe some drama, or romance. So I decide to read this one last night. But for something that is short, I noticed that it was taking me a while to get there. Until I realized I will never—

    Social Suicide

    Author: Gemma Halliday Series: (Deadly Cool #2) Published: April 24th 2012 by HarperTeen Rating: Is there a next book after this? Because I’m really, really afraid that it’ll become repetitive. And I’m scared that I might get tired of the same routine. And not even the humor will save it. Tweeting while swimming? Deadly. Thank goodness for the humor and the characters because if weren’t for these two I’ll find Social Suicide completely the same as Deadly Cool. So like—

    Hemlock

    Author: Kathleen Peacock Series: (Hemlock #1) Expected publication: May 8th 2012 by Katherine Tegen Books Rating: Ok, I’m on the fence. I think I spent good amount of time deciding how to rate it. 3? 3.5? But since it kept me all night (which means it was interesting enough to hold my attention), I’m gonna round it up to four. But then again I’m somewhat a fickle minded so I might change that. But not really that drastic. Now, all—
