Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke (Pbk)
Finally, I have devoted myself to this book exclusively! (Not counting manga breaks, of course.) It's a very interesting but very slow read. I have reached "Volume 2" though, so some progress is being made. But I will probably be at this book all month at the very least.

Natsume's Book of Friends, Volume 15
Natsume's Book of Friends Vol. 15 by Yuki Midorikawa (Pbk)
This is a fascinating, quiet series that I really adore. Japanese spirits are a favorite subject of mine. I find it a bit of a heavy, solemn read, for some reason, but so good.

The Winner's Curse (Winner's Trilogy, #1)
The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski (ARC)
You don't know how long I've been waiting to say this is my next read, but finally I can!! I was SUPER lucky to win an ARC, and as soon as I finish my current read I'm devouring this beauty!

Today's Review: Spring Cleaning

It may not technically be spring, but the weather here sure feels like it. After seeing a hoarders special on television, I went into serious cleaning mode over the weekend and my review went unfinished. On the bright side, a lot of my papers are organized! Apologies.

The Gentlemen's Alliance †, Vol. 06
The Gentlemen's Alliance † Vol. 6 by Arina Tanemura(Pbk)
I needed a manga fix, so I decided to re-read this series - and this time, thanks to my library, I get to finish it as well! I stopped collecting the volumes at 9 when I tired a little of it, and then it ended two volumes later. Served me right. Luckily, this time around the library has Vols. 10-11, so I can finally find out how it all ends!

The Gentlemen's Alliance †, Vol. 05
The Gentlemen's Alliance † Vol. 5 by Arina Tanemura (Pbk)
If there's one thing Arina is good at, it's love triangles (and other larger-sided shapes). And this series is definitely a good example! If you like the "he likes her but she likes her AND him but he likes her who is actually a him!" type of set-up, then I definitely recommend this one.

I really need to buckle down and read this! Bad Skye!

Publisher: Self-Published


Brooklynn Summers has a plan for her life: graduate from high school, get into a top fashion school, prove to her family that she’s not a failure.

When the two agree to work together, suddenly, there is more than just fabric paint that’s having a chemical reaction to its environment. Brooklynn cannot help but feel pulled into Grayson’s arms, but memories and misunderstandings surface, putting in danger whatever small comradeship these two childhood enemies have constructed.

Can Brooklynn overcome her own insecurities, finally making her dreams come true? Even a dream she didn’t know she had.

Review: Split Second (Kasie West)

Split Second (Pivot Point #2)
Title: Split Second
Series: Pivot Point, Book 2
Author: Kasie West
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: February 11, 2014
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Contemporary
Told: First Person (Addie & Laila), Past Tense
Content Rating: Teen (sensuality, some violence, minor language)
Format Read: ARC (friend)
Find On: Goodreads
Purchase OnAmazon | B&N | Book Depository

Life can change in a split second.

Addie hardly recognizes her life since her parents divorced. Her boyfriend used her. Her best friend betrayed her. She can’t believe this is the future she chose. On top of that, her ability is acting up. She’s always been able to Search the future when presented with a choice. Now she can manipulate and slow down time, too . . . but not without a price.

When Addie’s dad invites her to spend her winter break with him, she jumps at the chance to escape into the Norm world of Dallas, Texas. There she meets the handsome and achingly familiar Trevor. He’s a virtual stranger to her, so why does her heart do a funny flip every time she sees him? But after witnessing secrets that were supposed to stay hidden, Trevor quickly seems more suspicious of Addie than interested in her. And she has an inexplicable desire to change that.

Meanwhile, her best friend, Laila, has a secret of her own: she can restore Addie’s memories . . . once she learns how. But there are powerful people who don’t want to see this happen. Desperate, Laila tries to manipulate Connor, a brooding bad boy from school—but he seems to be the only boy in the Compound immune to her charms. And the only one who can help her.

As Addie and Laila frantically attempt to retrieve the lost memories, Addie must piece together a world she thought she knew before she loses the love she nearly forgot . . . and a future that could change everything.

*          *          *

Writing: Easy to follow and so much fun to read. Kasie is one of my favorite authors first and foremost for her writing style - anything she writes, I will devour.

Setting: There are two "worlds" - the Compound, where those with powers (Paras) live in secret, and the "Normal" rest of the world (for this book, mainly Texas). We spend pretty equal amounts of time in both areas. The Compound is supposed to have much more advanced technology than the Norm world, and while quite a few "advanced" things are hinted at and used, it otherwise felt just like the Norm world.

Story: The beginning of the story leaned heavily on the previous book, Pivot Point, which made it a bit of a confusing start for me. I'm a love'm and forget'm kind of reader (not by choice, mind you), and since I read the first book a year ago I could barely remember the characters' names, let alone all the details of the two plot lines Pivot Point followed. So while I felt that many things in the beginning of Split Second connected back to Pivot Point, I couldn't recall how. As Split Second progressed, though, the story diverted from past hints into a whole new plot, and I was able to follow along - and get sucked into - the exciting (and romantic) happenings. By the last third I literally couldn't put the book down, and I did not see that twist at the end! So while it began a little confusing, it was overall an amazing and tense story that wrapped up beautifully.

Characters: Sweet and sure Addie is back - and not so sure of anything anymore. She doesn't know who to trust as it seems that everyone around her is lying or keeping secrets. But she perseveres to find the answers of what's happening to her, and where (and with whom) she belongs. Trevor is the sweet and highly intuitive romantic interest that I came to know and love in Pivot Point. He doesn't remember anything from the previous book (since it only happened in Addie's mind), but this only made him even better and more swoon-worthy. I didn't think much of Laila in Pivot Point, but I absolutely adored her here! She was spunky and snarky and put up a strong front to hide the vulnerable mess that she was. And she was so good with Connor - although I never quite wrapped my head around Connor by himself. I loved what he was supposed to be, though, so it all worked out.

Romantic Relationships: The best part of the story. They were both just so sweet and adorable and perfect.

Series: This is Book 2 in the Pivot Point duology. Pivot Point (Book 1) was originally meant to be a standalone. Split Second picks up shortly after Pivot Point ends, and you definitely need to have read PP to understand a lot of what happens in SS. You can find my review of Pivot Point here.

ConclusionWasn't the utter perfection of Pivot Point, but pretty darn close. Both relationships were just perfect and fraught with many aww moments - Top 3 favorite bookish relationships, no contest. And that ending! I did not see it coming. I look forward to revisiting the pair together very soon, and definitely recommend reading the duology together.

I have a plan.

We'll either destroy them for good, or they'll destroy us.

Either way, only one of us is walking away.

In the stunning conclusion to the wildly popular White Rabbit Chronicles, Alice "Ali" Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She's ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers…until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It's then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters…and the worst has only begun.

As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies…and she isn't the girl she thought she was. She's connected to the woman responsible for killing—and turning—Cole's mother. How can their relationship endure?

Waiting On Wednesday: Half Bad (Sally Green)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Half Bad (Half Life, #1)
Title: Half Bad
Author: Sally Green
Release Date: March 4, 2014
Summary (from Goodreads):

A stunning, magical debut. An international sensation.

In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: White witches, who are good; Black witches, who are evil; and fifteen-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel Black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his sixteenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch—or else he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust—not even family, not even the girl he loves?

In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, Half Bad is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page.

Why I'm Looking Forward To ItI've been mildly interested in this book for a while, but it wasn't until I came across the excerpt a few days ago and discovered it's written in Second Person that it has became an obsession (check out the awesome excerpt for yourself here!). Second Person POV novels are pretty rare - one has never crossed my path, actually - and I haven't gone looking for them because 2P is extremely hard to do well. I'd never even read anything 2P until my college class (currently underway), and that was a short story (an awesome short story, btw). So now that I know Half Bad is 2P? I CANNOT WAIT TO READ THIS OMG. 

So what book are you waiting on?

Cover Reveal: GET EVEN (Gretchen McNeil) + Giveaway!

Welcome to the the Official Cover Reveal for Gretchen McNeil's GET EVEN (Get Even #1)! Check out the gorgeous cover and enter to win a signed ARC - or a Skype chat with the author herself! Now...the reveal!!


Release Date: September 16, 2014
Publisher: Balzer+Bray


Follows the secretive exploits of four high school juniors - Kitty, Olivia, Margot and Bree - at an exclusive Catholic prep school.

To all outward appearances, the girls barely know each other. At best, they don't move in the same social circles; at worst, they're overtly hostile.

Margot Mejia – academically ranked number two in her class, Margot is a focused overachiever bound for the Ivy League.

Kitty Li – captain of the California state and national champion varsity girls' volleyball team, she's been recruited by a dozen colleges and has dreams of winning an Olympic gold medal.

Olivia Hayes – popular star of the drama program, she's been voted "most eligible bachelorette" two years running in the high school yearbook and has an almost lethal combination of beauty and charm.

Bree Deringer – outcast, misfit and the kind of girl you don't want to meet in a dark alley, the stop sign red-haired punk is a constant thorn in the side of teachers and school administrators alike.

Different goals, different friends, different lives, but the girls share a secret no one would ever guess. They are members of Don't Get Mad, a society specializing in seeking revenge for fellow students who have been silently victimized by their peers. Each girl has her own reason for joining the group, her own set of demons to assuage by evening the score for someone else. And though school administration is desperate to find out who is behind the DGM "events", the girls have managed to keep their secret well hidden.

That is until one of their targets – a douchebag senior who took advantage of a drunk underclassman during a house party, videotaped it on his phone, and posted it on YouTube – turns up dead, and DGM is implicated in the murder.

Now the girls don't know who to trust, and as their tenuous alliance begins to crumble, the secrets they've hidden for so long might be their ultimate undoing.

Waiting On Wednesday: Fool Me Twice (Mandy Hubbard)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Fool Me Twice: An If Only novel
Title: Fool Me Twice
Author: Mandy Hubbard
Release Date: May 6, 2014
Summary (from Goodreads):

Last summer, Mackenzie and Landon were the perfect couple. And then he dumped her and broke her heart. Fast forward a year and they’re back at their summer jobs at Serenity Ranch and Spa. And Mack and her best friend Bailey are spending their time fantasizing about making voodoo dolls and playing childish pranks on Landon.

Lucky for Mack, the perfect opportunity presents itself. Landon takes a nasty fall and suddenly he’s stuck in the past—literally. His most recent memory is of last summer, when they were together, so now he’s calling Mack pet names and hanging all over her.

The plan is simple: keep Landon at arm’s length, manipulate him so he’s the one falling in love, and then BAM, dump him in the most epic revenge plot in the history of everdom. There’s only one teensy problem: Mack can’t fall for Landon a second time.

Why I'm Looking Forward To ItThis sounds like so much fun - it's exactly what I need right right now! (Or what I'll need this summer, as it won't release for a few more months. *sigh*) Still, super-excited to get my hands on it!! 

So what book are you waiting on?

ALIENATED Launch & NOOK Giveaway!

It is finally here! Alienated by Melissa Landers launches today, and I have a special post direct from the author, which includes an epic giveaway. Check it out!

-----     -----     -----

Hey, fiction lovers. I’m author Melissa Landers, and I’m thrilled to announce that my debut YA sci-fi romance, ALIENATED, is finally available from Disney-Hyperion! Cue the dancers and toss the confetti, because it’s been a long wait!

In a nutshell, ALIENATED is the story of valedictorian Cara Sweeney, who gets more than she bargained for when she agrees to host the nation’s first intergalactic exchange student, the gorgeous but emotionally-stilted Aelyx (pronounced A-licks) from planet L’eihr. The tone is light and humorous, but I explore some deeper themes as well.

Summary from Goodreads:

Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them. 

Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara's classmates get swept up by anti-L'eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn't safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara's locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class. 

Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she's fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.

What do reviewers have to say?
“The storyline is out of this world and character development paired with authentic voice is superb. Filled with intrigue and suspense, this book will appeal to both sci-fi and contemporary YA fiction fans.” –VOYA
“Interstellar relations heat up in this start to a new romantic science fiction series. Landers [explores] larger social, ecological, and ethical issues in this tense, fast-paced read.” –Booklist
“The perfect blend of sizzling romance, action, and suspense.” –#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Smart, funny, and epic. I am now awaiting contact from planet L’eihr.” Julie Cross, bestselling author of Tempest
“Intergalactic exchange students? Yes, please! I fell in love with this story and couldn’t put it down.” Jodi Meadows, author of Incarnate

If you like hot, swoony science fiction as much as I do, I hope you’ll give ALIENATED a try. It’s now available in stores and online!

To celebrate my book birthday, I’m offering one lucky winner a Nook Simple Touch. I’ll even throw in a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble so you can fill your new e-reader with whatever you want!

Now for the fine print: This giveaway is open to US residents only. (Sorry, international friends, but you need a US billing address to buy digital content on the Nook.) Due to sweepstakes laws, entrants must be 18 years or older to participate.

Best of luck, and happy reading!

Today's Review: Workshopping

I am swamped with college homework this week (critiques due tomorrow and my own workshopping piece due Thursday!), so today's review has been postponed. Apologies!

Saturday, February 1, 2014

Stacking the Shelves: January

Enter to win a signed poster of the Avalon cover HERE!!

Time for another Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews, where I share the books that I've added to my shelves this week.

College has me bogged down in some serious homework, so from now on I'm going to do monthly STS posts instead of weekly, at least until summer. So without further ado, here's my haul for January (minus what I've already featured):

  • Impostor by Susanne Winnacker (British ARC - Won from Author) - Snagged this from the author, @SusanneWrites, during a Twitter giveaway! I'm getting a Transparent vibe from it, so I'm really excited!
  • Elusion by Claudio Gabel & Cheryl Klam (ARC - From Publisher) - It just...appeared. No idea why. But there was certainly a lot of flailing when it did! Thank you, HarperTeen! <3
  • Split Second by Kasie West (ARC - From Dana) - The wonderful @danasquare passed her ARC on to me! As Kasie is one of my favorite authors, I have already started it - and am loving it.
  • Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway (Pbk - Purchased Used) - Been wanting to read this one for a while!
  • Vixen by Jillian Larkin (ARC - Purchased Used) - Discovered an ARC at the local library Friends bookstore and thought for fifty cents, why not?
  • The Offering by Kimberly Derting (ARC - Traded) - Got my hands on Book 3! Now to get my hands on and read Books 1 & 2...
  • Pandora Hearts Vols. 3-10 by Jun Mochizuki (Pbk - Purchased Used) - I read these from the library last month, but when I saw them half-price I just couldn't resist collecting this amazing series!
  • The Nethergrim by Mathhew Jobin (ARC - Epic Librarian) - This sounds like an epic fantasy! And I think my life needs more fantasy.
  • The Last Wild by Piers Torday (ARC - Epic Librarian) - I haven't come across many Juvenile Dystopians, so I'm really interested to try this.
  • The True Adventures of Nicolo Zen by Nicholas Christopher (ARC - Epic Librarian) - I also need more Historical in my life, and this sounds like a magical one.
  • Liv, Forever by Amy Talkington (ARC - Epic Librarian) - Ghosts at a boarding school solving their murders. Why not?
  • The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullina (ARC - Epic Librarian) - I'm honestly not quite sure what to make of this one, but I'll give it a try.
  • The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton (ARC - Epic Librarian) - Not quite sure of this one either, but I've decided 2014 is my time to try new books and genres, so onto the TBR pile this went!

So what books did you add to your shelves this week?
