Waiting On Wednesday (2)

Tuesday, March 29, 2011
It's a meme where we can show what book release we're anticipating.

This week I'm Waiting on 2 books coming out next week on April 5, 2011.

City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4)
by Cassandra Clare

Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release Date: April 5, 2011
424 pages

City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

Red Glove (Curse Workers #2)
by Holly Black

Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release Date: April 5, 2011
320 pages

Curses and cons. Magic and the mob. In Cassel Sharpe's world, they go together. Cassel always thought he was an ordinary guy, until he realized his memories were being manipulated by his brothers. Now he knows the truth—he’s the most powerful curse worker around. A touch of his hand can transform anything—or anyone—into something else.
That was how Lila, the girl he loved, became a white cat. Cassel was tricked into thinking he killed her, when actually he tried to save her. Now that she's human again, he should be overjoyed. Trouble is, Lila's been cursed to love him, a little gift from his emotion worker mom. And if Lila's love is as phony as Cassel's made-up memories, then he can't believe anything she says or does.
When Cassel's oldest brother is murdered, the Feds recruit Cassel to help make sense of the only clue—crime-scene images of a woman in red gloves. But the mob is after Cassel too—they know how valuable he could be to them. Cassel is going to have to stay one step ahead of both sides just to survive. But where can he turn when he can't trust anyone—least of all, himself?
Love is a curse and the con is the only answer in a game too dangerous to lose.

Cover Crazy (4)

Monday, March 28, 2011

It's a chance to share about what Book Cover caught our attention.

Summer and the City by Candace Bushnell

What I Liked:

2) The little trinket is a really cute place to put the names of the series.

3) How the title looks like it's part of the purse on the cover.

4) I also love the color of the cover.

Review: Wither by Lauren DeStefano

Saturday, March 26, 2011
Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Series: Chemical Garden #1
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release Date: March 22, 2011
eBook: 356 pages
Source: Publisher (Pulse It)

Thanks to modern science, every human being has become a ticking genetic time bomb—males only live to age twenty-five, and females only live to age twenty. In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out.
When sixteen-year-old Rhine Ellery is taken by the Gatherers to become a bride, she enters a world of wealth and privilege. Despite her husband Linden's genuine love for her, and a tenuous trust among her sister wives, Rhine has one purpose: to escape—to find her twin brother and go home.
But Rhine has more to contend with than losing her freedom. Linden's eccentric father is bent on finding an antidote to the genetic virus that is getting closer to taking his son, even if it means collecting corpses in order to test his experiments. With the help of Gabriel, a servant Rhine is growing dangerously attracted to, Rhine attempts to break free, in the limted time she has left.


My Opinion:

I've seen Wither reviews/opinions almost everywhere lately. At first I wasn't so sure about picking up a book that has been hyped about because I really didn't want to be disappointed, (Like mentioned in the latest Top Ten Tuesday List) but this book was not the case in anyway. This was one of those books that I don't want to put down and all I want to do is read. If I had to describe this book in only one word, the first word would be flawless!

The future that Lauren DeStefano made is horrifying and dangerous, yet captivating. The detail about the setting is amazing and effortless that I don't feel like I'm sitting through paragraphs of detail. Lauren also blended the past and the present in the most fluid way.

What made me love the story even more were the defined characters. Rhine has to be my favorite character because she is so passionate with the such raw emotions. She shows so much love for her twin brother and her sister wives.

Wither has made its way into my favorite books shelf. I could read this book over and over again, which isn't something I'd do. A lot of praise for Lauren DeStefano and her stunning book. Now I'm off to find out when the second book will come out!

If you haven't read Wither because you're unsure of it go read it anyway! You won't regret it. If you haven't read Wither but have heard of it, go towards a book store, library, etc. as soon as possible.

Stuff That Doesn't Suck (3)

Stuff That Doesn't Suck (STDs) is hosted by Pam from Bookalicio.us
This is a super cool meme where we can share what we found this week that doesn't suck. It can be stuff from books to blogs to music and more.

Blogs That Doesn't Suck:
Michelle and Leslie's Books Picks is a great book blog run by two sisters. How cool is that? They write great reviews as well as host great interviews. Be sure to check this blog out!

Book Covers That Doesn't Suck:
I've been seeing this cover around a lot lately and every time I see I love it even more. The book is The Girl In The Steel Corset by Kady Cross. (The link will take you to the goodreads summary.)


Picture Books That Doesn't Suck:
I was digging around my bookshelf and found one of my favorite picture books.
Don't Wake Up Mama! by Eileen Christelow is about 5 little monkeys who try to bake their mama a birthday cake.


Song That Doesn't Suck:
Rhythm of Love by The Plain White T's has been stuck in my head this whole week. It's such a cute love song thats easy to listen to.


Movies That Doesn't Suck:
I've watched Tangled in theaters but now I'm excited for it to come out on DVD. I believe Tangled will be out on DVDs March 29th which isn't too far away. I loved watching Tangled and I'd watch it again and again, which is exactly what I'm going to do. It's one of my favorite Disney Movies! This Repunzel isn't like the week princess I thought she was. This Repunzel is out for action.

Fries That Doesn't Suck:
I just love Five Guy's Burger and Fries cajun style french fries! They are so addictive I feel like I could it them by the buckets. (Not literally because I could barely finish a large size by myself.)

Review: Wings by Aprilynne Pike

Thursday, March 24, 2011
Title: Wings (Wings #1)
Author: Aprilynne Pike
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: May 1, 2009
Hardcover: 294 pages
Source: Library

Laurel was mesmerized, staring at the pale things with wide eyes. They were terrifyingly beautiful—too beautiful for words. Laurel turned to the mirror again, her eyes on the hovering petals that floated beside her head. They looked almost like wings.


In this extraordinary tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.




My Review:

Wings is a really refreshing faerie read. This was a new look on faeries that didn't include the usual 'wings' and faerie dust. I didn't get that over whelmed feeling of being in a magical world. It was a light read filled with the perfect amount of adventure and that dash of romance that leaves me wanting to read more.

Laurel is a very well developed character. She's curious and bold, which soon got her into difficult situations. The story mainly focuses most on Laurel, David, and Tamani with the brief acknoledgment of Laurel's parents. David starts off as being her go-to friend, but she's still conflicted if that's all. Tamani is a mystery. He's Laurel's link to her other life, the one she left behind. He's described as arrogant, intense, and passionate. I was hoping to get to know her parents more as well as her other friends, but I believe questions will be answered in the next book.

When I first picked up this book I wasn't sure how all of it included faeries. I did feel like the first half was a but too slow for my taste but the build up was very nicely done. It was definitely worth reading. This is a great book to start a series that I'm now eager to read.

Blog Update!

Wednesday, March 23, 2011
I finally made a banner and a button. Those two trees are the same trees I see every time I'm snuggled with a book reading in my house, but from different rooms. They're like my reading tree. Unfortunately I still haven't thought of a name, besides Vy's Blog, for my blog yet but that will be the next update :)

Waiting On Wednesday (1)

Tuesday, March 22, 2011
It's a meme where we can show what book release we're anticipating.

Torn by Erica O'Rourke

Publisher: Kensington
Release Date: June 28, 2011
336 pages

Everyone has secrets.

Even best friends.

Mo Fitzgerald knows about secrets. But when she witnesses her best friend’s murder, she discovers Verity was hiding things she never could have guessed. To find the answers she needs and the vengeance she craves, Mo—quiet, ordinary, unmagical Mo—will have to enter a world of raw magic and shifting alliances. And she’ll have to choose between two very different, equally dangerous guys—protective, duty-bound Colin and brash, mysterious Luc. One wants to save her, one wants to claim her. Which would you choose?

I've just recently found this and thought the synopsis sounded interesting. This wouldn't exactly be the kind of book I'd read but there's something about it that makes me want to pick it up anyways.

Did you have a W.O.W this week? Add your link with your comment and I'd love to check it out.

Top Ten Tuesday (1): Top Ten Bookish Pet Peeves

Monday, March 21, 2011

Top Ten Bookish Pet Peeves
(Books, Book Stores, Covers, etc...)

1. The book is too high on a book shelf or the shelf is too full that if I take it down the whole shelf might come with it.
2. When I get a library book that has been trashed.
3. Dog-earing pages
4. Stickers on books. They leave a gross sticky residue after you take them off. (An example from Jamie)
5. Too small of prints in the book.
6. I'm not sure why this bothers me so much but when there are blank pages in the back of the book. I wouldn't mind if it was only 1-2 pages but 3-4 pages is a bit too much. Does anyone know what it's for?
7. I love a good love triangle, but sometimes authors can over due them. Sometimes it's more like a love square or a love polygon.
8. Covers are always a work of art, but sometimes it just doesn't tie into the book.
9. Twilight was a very successful book and I know a lot of people love it but comparing every great book to Twilight is a big peeve. Not every single author who writes about vampires is copying Stephenie Meyer.
10. Sometimes I get disappointed when I read a book that has been hyped and I don't like it. (Does this count as a peeve?)

Review: White Cat by Holly Black

White Cat by Holly Black

Publisher: McElderry Books
Release Date: May 4, 2010
Paperbacks: 310 pages
Series: Curse Workers #1

Cassel comes from a family of curse workers — people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, by the slightest touch of their hands. And since curse work is illegal, they're all mobsters, or con artists. Except for Cassel. He hasn't got the magic touch, so he's an outsider, the straight kid in a crooked family. You just have to ignore one small detail — he killed his best friend, Lila, three years ago.


Ever since, Cassel has carefully built up a façade of normalcy, blending into the crowd. But his façade starts crumbling when he starts sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat that wants to tell him something. He's noticing other disturbing things, too, including the strange behavior of his two brothers. They are keeping secrets from him, caught up in a mysterious plot. As Cassel begins to suspect he's part of a huge con game, he also wonders what really happened to Lila. Could she still be alive? To find that out, Cassel will have to out-con the conmen.


My Review:

Holly Black's White Cat is a dark fantasy that sucks you into a world of magic and cons. The story really got my attention from the first sentence in the book, "I wake up barefoot, standing on cold slate tiles." How could I possibly put a book down after an opening like this? I was never able to set this book down after that. There were so many pieces of the story that couldn't be pieced together. Whenever I felt like I finally understood the con I turn the page and everything I thought I knew changes.

The book is told from Cassel's point of view, a character that can con his way into anything. He's really one big mystery that keeps things interesting. The characters in the story are all connected in a way that's quite odd but just adds more to the story. Each character is like a "one and only" kind of character. They are told so well that their personalities are so distinguish. I really enjoyed seeing how they all connected with each other the most.

I've read a lot of reviews talking about this dark new original world that Holly made, but I wasn't sure what I would be getting into. Now I finally understand this dark, dangerous, and mysterious world. It seems so natural and fluid that if I walked outside I would have thought I was there. The whole book is really original. From the setting, to the characters, and plot. I'm now a new Holly Black fan! I can't wait for the sequel Red Glove, which will be hitting stores April 5, 2011.

Cover Crazy (3)


It's a chance to share about what Book Cover caught our attention.


Steel by Carrie Vaughn
Released Date: March 15, 2011

What I Love About This Cover:

1) The sword. It has that golden, royalty feel to it. 

2) The sunlight reflecting off of the girl and the sword which makes the sword shine even more.

3) The girl on the cover looks like she can kick any bodies butt and she would, which could mean a strong female heroine!

What are your thoughts?

Book Blogs That Doesn't Suck:
The Naughty Book Kitties has to be one of the first book blogs I've ever read. It also became one of my favorite book blogs. Brent writes the most honest reviews and most captivating reviews.

Cupcake Blogs That Doesn't Suck:
I have an obsession for cupcakes and was wondering around looking for some recipes. I found 52 Cupcakes: Cupcakes and Layla! which features everything cupcakes.

Books That Doesn't Suck:
I haven't had a chance to read anything this week but I am reading White Cat by Holly Black which is a great book so far. Find a summery here.

TV Shows That Doesn't Suck:
Chuck, an NBC show, is my new favorite show. The show features Zachary Levi (as Chuck Bartowski), and is about a computer geek turned government agent. There's action, mystery, and that dash of romance that makes the show complete. Check it out on Monday nights at 8/7c.

Youtube Music That Doesn't Suck:
A friend of mine and her sister threw this together and I just can't stop listening to this.  The cover is called Trouble Rocketeering.

Review: Unearthly by Cynthia Hand

Monday, March 14, 2011
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: January 4, 2011
Hardcover: 435 pages
Series: Unearthly #1
Rating: 4/5

In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees . . . .

Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy.

Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.

As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?

Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.


My Review:

I've been hearing a lot of great things from Unearthly and decided to check it out. I'm so glad I did! I love angel stories and I really enjoyed this one since it isn't about a fallen angel, it's about an angel with a purpose. Clara has just found out that she's an angel and she wants to do it right, but she's not given much help. She tries hard to blend into her new school but unsuccessfully does so since she ends up sporting carrot orange hair from a hair dye gone wrong. I've read a lot of fallen angel books with kind of a unrealistic take on schools but I really enjoyed how Cynthia Hand played her characters into a "normal" school life.

This was a really smooth read. (Smooth [adjective] - elegant, easy, and polished. which I think describes this book pretty well.) I thought it was a great read that's very enjoyable and would recommend this to any one, especially to those who love angel stories. :) As much as I love this book there's a bit too many loose ends for my liking. That will only keep me even more interested in getting the sequel Hallowed which is expected to be released in 2012.

I also can't wait to read a little more about Tucker because he is growing on me! I'm a new fan :) I <3 Tucker!

Cover Crazy (2)

Cover Crazy is hosted by The Book Worms

by Saundra Mitchell

     The Vespertine have just recently hit stores March 7, 2011. At the moment I'm obsessed with Victorian Era books and this book cover caught my attention. I've been looking at a bunch of covers with dress colors like blue, purple, pink, white, etc... but this one caught my attention because the dress was a classy brown. There's this nice "brownish" color which I thought was really refreshing since most covers seem so bright (which I don't mind, but this book was in the middle of a bright pink and a purple colored cover). I like how there's that in-danger feeling of the book which seems to be catching my attention lately.

What do you think of this cover?

Blogs That Doesn't Suck:
I was just recently introduced to Novel Thoughts run by Jeremy West. They review great books that I find myself checking out after reading their posts. Running into Novel Thought's post of STUFF THAT DOESN'T SUCK also brought me to Pam's blog Bookalicio which is also a blog that doesn't suck.

Books That Doesn't Suck:
I just started Unearthly by Cynthia Hand and so far am loving it! Review coming soon but for now check out the summary here.

Music That Doesn't Suck:
Rolling In the Deep by Adele 


Gum That Doesn't Suck:
I have to admit that I have a gum chewing obsession...but there are benefits like stress relieving. Anyway the gum that has the longest lasting flavor and leaves your mouth feeling clean is Orbit's Wintermint.

Crossed Cover Revealed!

Friday, March 11, 2011
Crossed by Ally Condie now has a cover!

Crossed is the sequel to Matched by Ally Condie. The book is set in a world where your life is practically planned out for you and you can't do anything about it. I really like how the cover shows Cassis breaking out of the bubble she is in and how the cover is blue. (For those who have read Matched, the cover blue represents the blue tablet.) You can expect to see Crossed out in stores November 1, 2011. Here's a summary of what to expect...

In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky — taken by the Society to his certain death — only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander — who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart — change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.

Review: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Thursday, March 10, 2011
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: February 1, 2011
Hardcover: 441 pages
Series: Delirium #1
Rating: 4/5

Before scientists found the cure, people thought love was a good thing. They didn’t understand that once love -- the deliria -- blooms in your blood, there is no escaping its hold. Things are different now. Scientists are able to eradicate love, and the governments demands that all citizens receive the cure upon turning eighteen. Lena Holoway has always looked forward to the day when she’ll be cured. A life without love is a life without pain: safe, measured, predictable, and happy.
But with ninety-five days left until her treatment, Lena does the unthinkable: She falls in love.


My Review:

I found interest in Delirium after I read Matched by Ally Condie. I read the sypnopsis and noticed how the two books were kind of similar and since I enjoyed reading Matched I said, "Why not read kind of the same book?". I was wrong about how I thought the book would be. Living in a world where the government doesn't just control your life, they control how you feel. This isn't just another love story, this is a tragic love story. How Lauren Oliver writes about the emotions in this book in incredible! I didn't feel overwhelmed with the whole "teen love" and actually loved how she touched the love between mother and daughter, aunt and uncle, and best friends.

Lena Holloway has been counting the days until she is "cured" and is more than just excited. All she wants is to get rid of the pain she's feeling and be normal ...until she meets Alex. I know what your thinking another "guy saves girl" story. Alex isn't just another guy, he's a guy that wakes Lena from the horrible nightmare she's in. Her whole life she thinks that her life and the world is set into stone for you. She thinks there's only one way to live, but she's wrong. There are people out there who don't believe in the system. There are others out there who live there life without fear, without having to be "cured".

This book was great book! "Delirium is a book that will have you looking at the world around you in a new way, things will no longer be black and white, but a widening range of grays in between." - Page Turners

Review: Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Wednesday, March 9, 2011
Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins
Publisher: Hyperion
Release Date: March 1, 2011
Hardcover: 359 pages
Series: Hex Hall #2
Rating: 5 out of 5

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?


My Review:

Demonglass is one of those books that are a light and easy read. I loved this book because of the new setting Sophie is placed in and the environment of the story. This was such an emotional roller coster. One moment I was laughing, the other I was screaming "NO! NO! Don't do it", and then the next I'm practically bawling! Well lets go back a bit...

Throughout the whole book Rachel Hawkins really sets Sophie's mood and energy in a way that I feel like I know her. She's such a strong character that really knows how to get me laughing. Example of how laughing at books is bad: it's about 1 am (on a school night) and I just start cracking up in the middle of the night! Of course I got some "shhhhh" from angry parents but it was totally worth reading it! Sophie's also a very bold person that makes decisions that readers just want to say "NO!!!". Not only are we yelling at Sophie, but some more interesting characters show up that leave you stunned. (Characters including Archer Cross <3)

The book was so good that I accidentally stayed up all night and finished it without even thinking! (and no it wasn't a school night.) When I was done I was left with a "That can't be all...there has to be more!" kind of stage. The book just left me wanting more and the only reasonable thing to do at 2 am was to pick up my laptop and look for the third book.

If you haven't read Hex Hall yet I highly recommend you go read it...like now. If you've already read Hex Hall and still haven't read Demonglass I recommend you go straight to a bookstore.

The Gray Wolf Throne Cover Release

Tuesday, March 8, 2011
The book cover for The Gray Wolf Throne has just been revealed!!!


The Gray Wolf Throne by Cinda Williams Chima is the third book in the Seven Realms series. After reading the first two books, The Demon King and The Exiled Queen, I was practically stalking Cinda (in the YA Readers way *wink*) for the release date for this book. You can expect to see The Gray Wolf Throne in stores September 20, 2011. For those who haven't read/heard about the Seven Realms series I recommend you go grab yourself a copy! (Check out Cinda's Blog for more info.) Here's a summary of what to expect...

Han Alister thought he had already lost everyone he loved. But when he finds his friend Rebecca Morley near death in the Spirit Mountains, Han knows that nothing matters more than saving her. The costs of his efforts are steep, but nothing can prepare him for what he soon discovers: the beautiful, mysterious girl he knew as Rebecca is none other than Raisaana’Marianna, heir to the Queendom of the Fells. Han is hurt and betrayed. He knows he has no future with a blueblood. And, as far as he’s concerned, the princess’s family killed his own mother and sister. But if Han is to fulfill his end of an old bargain, he must do everything in his power to see Raisa crowned queen.

Meanwhile, some people will stop at nothing to prevent Raisa from ascending. With each attempt on her life, she wonders how long it will be before her enemies succeed. Her heart tells her that the thief-turned-wizard Han Alister can be trusted. She wants to believe it—he’s saved her life more than once. But with danger coming at her from every direction, Raisa can only rely on her wits and her iron-hard will to survive—and even that might not be enough.

Cover Crazy (1)

Sunday, March 6, 2011





Cover Crazy is hosted by The Book Worms
(see Features Page for more detail)


Passion the upcoming novel by Lauren Kate will be in stores June 14, 2011. It will be the third book in the series. One thing I love about the Fallen series are their covers!

Likes:

1) The gorgeous dress
2) The dark background with the clouds that look like it'd storm any minute
3) There's this great mix of colors that the other books didn't have

My only dislike is that the cover is all I can stare at until the book is released. A little quote from the publishers about this book, "Before Luce and Daniel met at Sword & Cross and fought immortals at Shoreline, they lived many lives. . ."
