Beastly is based off of Alex Flinn's novel, Beastly (Book review coming soon). It is a modern take on beauty and the beast starring Vanessa Hudgens as the beauty and Alex Pettyfer as the beast. :) Beastly will be on the big screen March 4! I am actually really excited to see this book to film. Check out the trailer!

Upcoming Release: Demon Glass

Demon Glass by Rachel Hawkins will be released on March 1, 2011 which is coming up fast. Demon Glass is the 2nd book of the three book trilogy. Book one is Hex Hall and it was one of those books that caught my attention with its cover.

Summary: (Goodreads)
Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch.

That was the whole reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her hot crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth.

Turns out, Sophie’s a demon, one of only two in the world—the other being her father. What’s worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. Which is precisely why Sophie decides she must go to London for the Removal, a dangerous procedure that will destroy her powers.

But once Sophie arrives she makes a shocking discovery. Her new friends? They’re demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is set on hunting Sophie down, and they’re using Archer to do it. But it’s not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

Review: Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly

Revolution
by: Jennifer Donnelly

Summary: (Goodreads)
BROOKLYN: Andi Alpers is on the edge. She’s angry at her father for leaving, angry at her mother for not being able to cope, and heartbroken by the loss of her younger brother, Truman. Rage and grief are destroying her. And she’s about to be expelled from Brooklyn Heights’ most prestigious private school when her father intervenes. Now Andi must accompany him to Paris for winter break.

PARIS: Alexandrine Paradis lived over two centuries ago. She dreamed of making her mark on the Paris stage, but a fateful encounter with a doomed prince of France cast her in a tragic role she didn’t want—and couldn’t escape.

Two girls, two centuries apart. One never knowing the other. But when Andi finds Alexandrine’s diary, she recognizes something in her words and is moved to the point of obsession. There’s comfort and distraction for Andi in the journal’s antique pages—until, on a midnight journey through the catacombs of Paris, Alexandrine’s words transcend paper and time, and the past becomes suddenly, terrifyingly present.

Review:
This is such an incredible book that my review won't do it justice. It is so well written that the reader feels the struggles that Alexandrine and Andi go through. Andi seems like a lost character that doesn't know how to heal her broken heart, but is always looking for just that glimpse of hope. She is one of those characters that you feel like you know them so well after the book. I've read this book a month ago and my memory is a bit hazy, but this is one of those books where you can't say, "Oh, I could have done a better job." Huge praise for Jennifer Donnelly!

Review: Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

Friday, February 25, 2011
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr tells the story of Aislinn, a girl who can see faeries. It’s not as wonderful as it sounds for Aislinn because these faeries aren’t all nice. She’s lived by three rules here whole life.

Rule #3: Don’t Stare at invisible faeries.
Rule #2: Don’t Speak to invisible faeries.
Rule #1: Don’t EVER attract their attention.

When the rules stop working though, everything is suddenly on the line, everything.

I finished this book in two days! It captured my attention from the first page. I would never think of reading this book but my librarians highly recommend it. I’ve read the Mortal Instruments and really enjoyed the urban fantasies so I gave it a shot. This book is a light read with heavy situations. The characters are given enough detail but not enough to keep you waiting for the next book. After finishing Wicked Lovely I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series, Ink Exchange.
