And for this week’s topic: November 27: Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For 2013 Because I’m particularly fond of the topic I decided to participate this week. Though I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be—

The meme is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.

    Black City

    Author: Elizabeth Richards Series: (Black City #1) Published: November 13th 2012 Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons BYR Categories: Paranormal, Post Apocalyptic Rating: Three out of four. I think it’s safe for me to say that I liked the mixed of dystopia/post-apocalyptic, paranormal and romance. Like in every book I read I set list of things to expect. The book doesn’t necessarily need to meet everything on my checklist. One or two will suffice. Black City by Elizabeth Richards missed a lot—

    Reached

    Author: Ally Condie Series:  Matched #3 Published: November 13th 2012 Publisher: Dutton Childrens Books Categories: Dystopia, Science Ficttion Rating: “There is ebb and flow. Leaving and coming. Flight and fall. Sing and silent. Reaching and reached.” What I really loved about this series is the subtlety. This genre is full of aggressive, war torn centric plots. It’s the revolution and the violence seems to be the key ingredient that readers are willingly like to taste. I mean, that’s what the—

    Deity

    Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout Series: Covenant #3 Published: November 6th 2012 Publisher: Spencer Hill Press Categories: Fantasy, Mythology Rating: I appreciate the fact that the story is heading in a different direction. A direction which unfortunately is still not all original to me. But I appreciate it. Really. But the characters are still an issue to me. It’s another matter altogether. I liked that even though I think it’s late for them to evolve to characters that will make them—

    The Proposition

    Author: Katie Ashley Series: The Proposition #1 Published: October 31st 2012 Publisher: Self Published Categories: Adult, Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: I’m a sucker for relationship development that started as a scheme, especially if this scheme involves babies (making babies *winks*). So when I saw this book and read the blurb, reading it is the natural thing to do. This is my kind of book. This is definitely, a hundred percent ‘Mitchii’s’ book. But despite my enthusiasm, I wasn’t planning to—

    Clash

    Author: Nicole Williams Series: Crash #2 Published: November 13th 2012 (first published as self-pub, September 1st 2012) Publisher: HarperCollins Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: If I were to define the status of their relationship I think Katy Perry’s song described it quite well: “Cause you’re hot then you’re cold You’re yes then you’re no You’re in then you’re out You’re up then you’re down You’re wrong when it’s right It’s black and it’s white We fight, we break up We—

    Crash

    Author: Nicole Williams Series: Crash #1 Published: November 13th 2012 (first published as self-pub, July 19th 2012) Publisher: HarperCollins Categories: Contemporary, Realistic Fiction Rating: This book possesses what I love and hate in a book, and yet the stuff that will normally had me gritting my teeth or pulling my hair, I just easily bypassed it because the author made it worked.  This book also shows that bad boys aren’t already a lost cause. Their types do not necessarily synonymous—
