From Goodreads:
What if your life was charmed and everything in it was perfect…
Before.

This is the story of my past. Of what things were like for me when everything was normal. Of what every teenager’s life is like. Clothes. Parties. Boys and summer vacation. What’s so wrong with that? I liked it. I was happy.

Until things changed. I changed.

I didn’t know that lies and secrets were about to take over my existence. I didn’t know there was someone out there, someone meant just for me. I didn’t know that I was about to go on a journey, a journey that would lead me to the girl I am today.
This is the beginning of the worst year of my life. Would I go back and change things? Erase everything that has happened to go back into these moments?

Not a chance.

This is a story of before.

Cambria kindly sent me the prequel of her debut novel for review before her novel comes out in December.

Heven is the perfect girl with the perfect life. She has just been asked out by the guy she's liked for a while and she has just been appointed head cheerleader. Everything is looking up.
Sam is a mysterious guy stuck in a mysterious world Heven knows nothing about. She doesn't know him but he knows her but he can't be a part of her world as he wants, it could put Heven in danger. But will he be able to resist when she is everything he has ever wanted?

This prequel is a very short story featuring the characters of the upcoming full-length novel, Masquerade. Because of it being very short there is not much to say about it. I really liked reading it and it got me excited for the first book in this new series and I think the prequel shows the potential of a great storyline and a great start to a series.
I am really looking forward to reading Masquerade and seeing what happens with these characters.

From Goodreads:
Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “the Duff,” she throws her Coke in his face.

But things aren’t so great at home right now, and Bianca is desperate for a distraction. She ends up kissing Wesley. Worse, she likes it. Eager for escape, Bianca throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with him.





Until it all goes horribly awry. It turns out Wesley isn’t such a bad listener, and his life is pretty screwed up, too. Suddenly Bianca realizes with absolute horror that she’s falling for the guy she thought she hated more than anyone.

When I got this book this week from a friend I instantly wanted to start it. I have read Kody's other book, Shut Out and loved it and couldn't wait to read this one, her first novel. I didn't think I would but I loved this much more than Shut Out.

Bianca is smart, she is a straight A student and he despises Wesley Rush, the most popular boy in school.  But Bianca's home life is crappy and what she wants most of all is a distraction. Something to keep her mind off it. She finds that with Wesley. She may hate him but when she is with him she forgets about everything. So suddenly she finds herself having a purely physical fling with Wesley. What she doesn't count on is finding out how similar they are and she find herself falling for him. But can Wesley, the guy who will have sex with any girl, return her feelings or is she destined to get her heartbroken again?

I loved this book. I loved the characters and everything. Bianca is such a great lead character. She is such a strong character but you get to see vulnerable sides to her and it shows how things affect teenagers just as much as adults. I loved Wesley. At first I didn't really like him. I thought he was an idiot and an ass but the more I read the more I started to love him and realise that he just wanted to be loved and to feel love as he was not getting that from his family.
One of the things I really loved about the storyline was that it showed that no matter how different people are, whether you are the most popular guy in high school or the nerdy straight A student everyone has something is common and we are all alike each other. I also love how it addresses the issue of the 'the duff'. It shows what pretty much every girl thinks of herself at some point and shows that no matter who you are, you will always be beautiful.

I am in love with Kody's books and her edgy writing style is amazing. I will definitely be reading any other books that she publishes. I definitely like this book better than Shut Out but both are excellent books that I could read again and again.

Review: Obsidian (Lux #1)

Obsidian (Lux #1)

Genre: YA - Science Fiction

From Goodreads:
Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

When I recieved this book for review, I squeeled, I mean I actually squeeled and jumped up and down with excitement a little. I was so excited. I took part in the cover and blurb reveal and ever since then I had been dying to read this book. I was not disappointed at all and I loved every moment of it. Most bloggers find it really difficult to write bad reviews, I am the opposite, I find good reviews difficult, I know, I know I have wrote like a gazillion good reviews but I never feel like anything I say will do the book justice and this is definitely how I feel about Obsidian. Nothing I ever say can possibly explain how amazing this book is and how I felt while reading it.

Katy and her Mom move to a small town and Katy is sure it will be very boring. Boy is she wrong. Little does she know her new best friend, Dee and her gorgeous but arrogant twin brother Daemon are aliens. Soon enough she is thrown into a world she never knew existed and she does her best to protect the two people next door she has grown to love. But can she protect her heart from the arrogant, always-an-ass to her, bad boy next door?

I loved this book. Actually loved every second of it. I couldn't put it down and every time I had something else to do I found myself thinking, do I really have to or can I just keep reading? I devoured the book within 2 days and then was so very sad that I had no more of Daemon and Katy to read about.
I think a lot of my friends would be with me when I say I could associate to Katy so much. She is a book blogger, and I definitely share her love of books (obviously) and I just loved it when I saw my favourite bookish memes in the book. I loved that when Katy found out the secret about Dee and Daemon she actually had a reaction that you or me would have. Not enough characters in books have realistic reactions when they find something paranormal and I was so happy to find a book where the character did. I love how strong she is and how she never gave up. When she was given the chance to run away from it she fought back. I think she's a great lead female character and anyone can associate with her.

Daemon, oh what to say about Daemon. I am in love with him. He is officially my new favourite book boyfriend. Ever since he opened the door shirtless with those piercing green eyes I was in love. Yes he's an ass pretty much all the time but no matter what snarky comments he made I still loved him. I loved seeing him and Katy together as it was just so funny and I was always in fits of laughter when they were together.

This book was just incredible and I am so happy I got the chance to review it. This was the first book by Jennifer I have read and I just fell in love with her writing-style and her characters. She is definitely now one of my favourite authors and I cannot wait to read her other books. I will definitely be buying the paperback of Obsidian when it comes out and I will re-read this book again and again. One of my favourite books of the year and now I am so sad that I have finished it. I am super excited to continue this series and I am really looking forward to seeing how Daemon and Katy's relationship continues.

Cover Reveal: Shadow Bound (Unbound #2)

Shadow Bound (Unbound #2)
By Rachel Vincent



From Goodreads:
If you live in the dark long enough, you begin to forget the light…

KORI DANIELS is a shadow-walker, able to travel instantly from one shadow to another. After weeks of confinement for betraying her boss, she’s ready to break free of the Tower syndicate for good. But Jake Tower has one final job for Kori, one chance to secure freedom for herself and her sister, Kenley, even if that means taking it from someone else…

The job? Recruit Ian Holt—or kill him.

Ian’s ability to manipulate the dark has drawn interest from every syndicate in the world, most notably an invitation from Jake Tower. Though he has no interest in organized crime, Ian accepts the invite, because he’s on a mission of his own. Ian has come to kill Tower’s top Binder: Kori’s little sister.

Amid the tangle of lies, an unexpected thread of truth connecting Ian and Kori comes to light. But with opposing goals, they’ll have to choose between love and liberty…
ckquote>

I absolutely cannot wait for this book. I read the first one and it was my first Rachel Vincent book and I loved it. I fell in love with the world that characters everything. It is one of my favourite books of the year that I read and it made Jury duty bearable.

I LOVE this cover. It's beautiful!
I think it's the US cover but I am not sure. I think it's one of the most beautiful covers and I love how it fits in with the first one.

What do you think?
Are you excited about this book?

Review: Last Breath (Morganville Vampires #11)

Last Breath (Morganville Vampires #11)
Rachel Caine

Published By: Allison and Busby
Publication Date: November 21, 2011
Date Read: October 24, 2011
Genre: YA - Paranormal Romance
Source: Review copy from Publishers
Format: Paperback
Pages: 447
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11072286-last-breath

From Goodreads:
There is a question Claire has long been asking: why do vampires live so far out in a sunny desert when they're sensitive to sunlight? The reason doesn't have to do with sunlight but water - and an ancient enemy who has finally found a way to invade the vampires' landlocked community. Vampires aren't the top predator on earth. There's something worse that preys on them ...something much worse. Which means if Claire, and Morganville, want to live, they will have to fight on to the last breath.

I was so excited to receive this for review from Allison & Busby Publishers and I just had to start to straight away. Morganville Vampires is without a doubt my favourite vampire series ever. I am always torn between this series and Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series but after reading Last Breath this is definitely the best vampire series I have ever read. The writing style is amazing and the storyline is shocking and beautiful all at the same time. This is the only series that has captured my attention through so many books and still has me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book 11 books down the line.

Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael have come to terms with a lot of weird things in Morganville. It being ran by vampires and having to work with them in order to survive. But one thing Claire doesn't know and can't stop thinking about it why vampires would settle in a town in the middle of the desert in a very hot, sunny location when they have major sunlight sensitivity. What Claire doesn't count on is finding out this little bit of information may put hers and her friends lives in danger because little did they know they are bang in the middle of a war; one that has been a long time coming; and one that has finally caught up with them and the Morganville Vampires.

The only think that came to mind when I had first finished Last Breath was OMG I cannot possibly wait until May for the next book in the series. After having a break and coming to terms with all the things that happened I can honestly say that for me Last Breath is 100% without a doubt my favourite book of the series so far. I think it was the best one and I couldn't put it down. I know, I know I say this with every book in this series that I read but that's how I feel. That they just get better and better with each book. This series is like a drug to me, I am so addicted I can't put it down and then when I'm finished it's torture waiting for the next book because I need my Morganville fix straight away. There is not one boring moment in this book, everything is fast paced and I cannot wait for book 12.

Last Breath is definitely the most emotional book of the series so far. Rachel Caine successfully turned me into a blubbering baby as I just could not stop crying through a number of chapters. I could not believe the storyline and the twist and I was crying to hard I had to stop reading for a little while I calmed myself down. My mind was a mess and I was thinking why would Rachel do this to the characters and the readers? I can't believe that happened. But I kept reading and the ending was explosive, amazing and phenomenal.
I am super excited that there will be 15 books in total in this series and I am not quite ready to let this phenomenal series go. I have complete faith in Rachel that the ending will be phenomenal and I cannot wait to see how the series ends but I will 100% enjoy every step on the way before we get there. This is a series I will re-read again and again and no matter how many books I have to-read I just want to re-read them.

A phenomenal chapter in the Morganville Vampires and definitely the best. I can't wait to see what will happen next.

Review: Silence (Hush Hush #3)

Silence (Hush Hush #3)
Becca Fitzpatrick

Published By: Simon and Schuster
Publication Date: October 4, 2011
Date Read: October 22, 2011
Genre: YA - Paranormal Romance
Source: Bought
Format: Hardback
Pages: 438
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10637766-silence

From Goodreads:
The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.

Wow! That is the one word that comes to mind when thinking about Silence. I was a little reluctant to start this at first to be honest. I wasn't the biggest fan of book 2, Crescendo, I thought the first book of the series Hush, Hush was much better and I didn't want to feel like that again with Silence. Add that to the fact that I was really disappointed to find out that this is not in fact the end of the series. This series was originally meant to be a trilogy and I was really looking forward to seeing how it would end. When it was announced there would be a 4th book I was really disappointed. With the series originally meant to be 3 books I felt like maybe if it went over that it would be dragged out and not be because the storyline needed a fourth book. After reading this book I 100% take it back. I cannot wait for the fourth book.

Nora and Patch have overcome so much to be together, but suddenly they are torn apart once more. When they find their way back to one another they must overcome a lot more to get rid of a common enemy once and for all but will their love conquer all or will it crash and burn?

This is 100% my favourite book of the series so far. I loved every single moment of it. It was un-put-downable and I only wish I had had more time to read so that I could have finished it sooner. Patch was even better in this book and I fell even more in love with him. He is just the perfect bad-boy but has such a sweet side to him every girl can't help but love him. Nora was amazing in this book, after what happened to her (I am not saying what as it will spoil it) I find it amazing how strong she was and how she kept going and wouldn't settle until she had found out the truth.
I am not going to lie at one point in the story I actually had to have a break and stop reading as I didn't like where the story was going and was thinking why would Becca do this to us? It is such an enormous twist in the story and I honestly couldn't see a way out of it or how Nora and Patch could possibly get a happy ending.

I am totally in love with Becca's writing. It has without a doubt improved so much since the first book in the series and she is one of my favourite authors. Even though I was disappointed about there being a book 4 after finishing Silence I am so happy and excited. I can see that it is not going to drag out the series as there was no way all of the loose ends could have been tied up in this book. The storyline needs more books and there is such a big twist I honestly cannot wait until book 4 comes out to find out what is going to happen next with Patch and Nora. The ending gave me a lot of hope that no matter what happens they will get a happy ending. They have overcome this much and I have complete faith in Becca that they will overcome every obstacle that gets in their way.
A great book and I am super excited to find out what happens next.

Blog Tour: Generations 1

Hey Everyone,
I am absolutely thrilled and excited to be the third stop on the blog tour for Mia's fab new novel and first in a brand new series Generations I: Book of Enlightenment. 


For my post there is a little bit about the book from Goodreads and my review.
Read on below for a giveaway too =)

From Goodreads:
Ellie Solomon has always been sort of a loner. Between her brother(who is the only family she has left) and a few friends (that are more his friends than hers) she lives a boring life. The one person she confides in is her Guardian Angel who visits her dreams. He is her best friend, too bad he's not real. When strange wolves with red eyes begin chasing her one evening, a mysterious boy and his dog saves her, catapulting her into the secret of Her parents fate and who she really is. Together, with her new friends she embarks on a journey that leads her to the destiny of her Generation.

When I first heard Mia was writing a paranormal series I instantly couldn't wait to read it. I read her short story The Ocean months ago for the blog tour of it and loved it. I fell in love with her writing and her characters so I couldn't wait to get my hands on her next piece of work. I have to say I never thought I would like this book more than The Ocean because I loved The Ocean so much and didn't think anything else could compare. I was so wrong. I think this is definitely better and I am super excited to see where this series goes from here.

Ellie has always just had her brother Gideon. After their parents died all they have is each other. The had to learn to survive just with each other. But then they are thrust into a world of magic that they didn't know existed. They are part of the Generations. A angel-like species who are mortal but have powers from the heavens and the gift of free-will. They must band together to defeat the evil Noctem, the creations of Lucifer. What Ellie doesn't expect is to meet her 'dream guy' the guy she has been dreaming about since before she could remember and thought was fictional. But he isn't. He is part of her Generations and she finds herself torn between 2 brother, both who love her and would do anything without her. Will she be able to fix her love life that before now has been non-existant as well as fight the evil Noctem who seem to have a special interest in her?

I absolutely adored this book. It was incredible and I love the world Mia has created. I love the idea of good vs evil mixed with Angels. It's very different from other Angel books I have read. They are not actually angels but a species similar and I think it's a very new and unique idea which I loved.
I love all the characters in this book. Ellie and Gideon are amazing. They have this unique bond, not only are they brother and sister but they are best friends and would do absolutely anything for the other. I absolutely love Ellie, she is such a great character, she is so strong and no matter what happens to her she won't back down. When she's faced with evil, even when she's afraid she won't show it. She is such a strong character and I love that.
I love Zeke, Zeke is such a great character and he is definitely the guy that every girl will fall in love with. He's sweet, loving and overprotective and will do anything to save the ones he loves. Contrast that with his younger brother Ben, the impulsive one who just wants to lay back and have fun but is forced to act older because of the responsibilities of the Generations. Both guys are great characters and I loved both of them.

This book had just the right balance between action/storyline and romance so it is definitely the perfect book for me. I loved every moment of it and the ending left me shocked and reeling for more. I think I have a love-hate relationship with this ending. I do like cliffhanger endings because they keep me hooked and make me desperate for more and this ending definitely did that. But to me it was such a big shock that I need to find out what happens next like right now! Even though Mia has told me she definitely wasn't trying to torture readers with the ending I think deep down she really was as that's what the ending was to me. It will be torture waiting to see what happens next.

It's such an amazing start to what's going to be an amazing series and I am so excited to read the next instalment. This will definitely be a re-read for me and I will be reading it again before the next instalment of this series.

Review: Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1)

Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1)
Ilona Andrews

Published By: Gollancz
Publication Date: September 9, 2010
Date Read: October 18, 2011
Genre: Adult - Urban Fantasy
Source: Bought
Format: Paperback
Pages: 260
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6712343-magic-bites

From Goodreads:
When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

Kate Daniels is a down-on-her-luck mercenary who makes her living cleaning up these magical problems. But when Kate's guardian is murdered, her quest for justice draws her into a power struggle between two strong factions within Atlanta's magic circles.

The Masters of the Dead, necromancers who can control vampires, and the Pack, a paramilitary clan of shapechangers, blame each other for a series of bizarre killings—and the death of Kate's guardian may be part of the same mystery. Pressured by both sides to find the killer, Kate realizes she's way out of her league—but she wouldn't have it any other way.

I didn't really know what to expect when I started this book. I have heard great things about the series but not so much about the first book. I heard that the first book wasn't brilliant but the rest of the series got much better. I was really surprised as I didn't think the book was brilliant but I did end up loving it and didn't think it was anywhere near as bad as some people made it out to be.

Kate is a mercenary who holds significant amounts of magic and she is constantly finding herself in sticky situations. When her guardian is killed she sees it as her personal mission to find out who was responsible and get revenge. She finds herself caught in the middle of a war between Necromancers and Shifters, befriending the leader of the Shifters, Curran, Kate finds herself in over her head, but she will not backdown until she figures out the mysterious death.

To begin with I was interested in the story but didn't really get the hooked feeling that I get with books but the storyline kept me reading and then once I got about halfway through I started to really love it. I really love both main characters and that usually doesn't happen until further in the series. Add that to the fact that the storyline was exciting and fast-paced I really enjoyed this book. The world-building wasn't as good as in other series and by the end of the book I still felt like I didn't really know much about the world in which the series is set, but I am not really too bothered about that as I am looking forward to seeing what we find out about it in books further in the series.

Kate has to be one of my favourite female leads in a series. She's a very strong character and always finds herself in situations out of her league and I love that you never get a moment where she's worrying and moaning about it, she gets on with it and won't give up. I love that about her.
Curran is such a great character. When we first met him I was unsure about him and was looking forward to getting to know him better. By the end of the book I loved him. He's definitely the big alpha male character who takes control of every situation but you can also see a softer side to him. You don't see much of the softer side in this book but to me it was obvious it was there. He stayed strong for everyone around him and took control of everything because of the amount of responsibility he had upon him but then you could see that he wasn't happy about some of the situations and he cared about those around him.

I can't wait to see what happens in this series. I'm especially looking forward to seeing how Kate and Curran's relationship develops. At first I saw no basis for a romantic relationship between them but by the end I could see that underneath all the fighting and conflict that they have between each other that both deep-down really may have feelings for each other and I'm really looking forward to seeing how that develops in the rest of the series.
A great start to a series and I really can't wait to read the next book.
