Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1) Review

Title: Shatter Me                                 

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Genre: Science Fiction

Age Group: Young Adult

My Rating: 5 / 5



Goodreads Summary:

I have a curse
I have a gift

I am a monster
I'm more than human

My touch is lethal
My touch is power

I am their weapon
I will fight back

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

Lost In Starlight Book Release Day


Title: Lost In Starlight

Author: Sherry Soule

Genre: Upper Young Adult / Syfy Romance


Goodreads Summary:

High school is tough. Romance with a sexy alien—even tougher.

Star reporter Sloane Masterson knows she has one helluva story when she witnesses hottie Hayden Lancaster bending forks with his mind.

Like any good journalist, Sloane sets out to uncover the truth, even if it includes a little stalking. When the superhuman feats start to pile up and the undeniable heat rises between them, Hayden has no choice but to reveal his secret: he’s an alien hybrid.

They’re as different as night and day—she’s a curvy, purple-haired, horror junkie and he’s a smoking hot, antisocial, brainiac—yet the intense fascination between them refuses to go away. Even at Hayden’s insistence that dating each other is “off limits” and dangerous, their fiery attraction threatens to go supernova.

Now Sloane’s dealing with creepy government agents, über snobby extraterrestrials, and a psycho alien ex-girlfriend out for revenge. After a crash course on the rules of interstellar dating, Sloane must decide if their star-crossed romance is worth risking her own life....

Undeinably Chosen Cover Reveal

A Significance Novel

Synopsis:

Ava has watched her parents, Caleb and Maggie, live the perfect fairy tale, the perfect love story, played out in front of her eyes her entire life. Her family is love, life, and happiness. The Jacobsons are everything a family should be and Ava is loved and well taken care of. But the one thing that’s missing from her life is the one thing she’s waited for every day, the one thing her kind knows will make them complete, the one thing they thought was gone and lost forever.

Her significant.

Seth has lived with the Watsons his entire life. They’re the only family he knows, but he knows that there are things they keep from him. He knows that they lie and they do unspeakable evil, things from when he was a child that he can barely remember that cling to the edges of his memory. He barely remembers his real mother and all he knows is what he’s told. He doesn’t know what to trust. He wants to believe that the Watsons love and care for him, have his best interest at heart, but isn’t so sure of that anymore when he finally—after a lifetime of waiting for her—meets his soulmate, and the Watson’s first act is to try to take her away from him.

Soul Mates: Guest Post By Shay West


Hi everyone! Today I have a special treat for you guys!

Ms. Shay West, author of Dangerous Reflection is doing a guest post for us on soul mates.  Her new book Dangerous Reflection is coming out this Monday, June 23, 2014, and soul mates are a part of her new book, so she is here to talk to us about that.

Ladies and gentleman.... Ms. Shay West.

Soul Mates

When it comes to books, I prefer action compared to romance. Not that a little romance is necessarily a bad thing, I just like to read fast-paced books with battles and conflict. I prefer to read about how two people fall in love rather than the act of love itself. What brought the two together? Are they attracted only physically at first but love blossoms later? Do they hate each other only to find they have more in common than they realize? Are they drawn together like a moth to a flame, unable to resist one another? Are they forced into a marriage that their families arranged before they were born? There are so many ways people come to love one another and decide to make that commitment to stay together. It’s this aspect that fascinates me.

I Got A Liebster Award!!

A big THANK YOU to Alex Ang from The Book's Buzz and Gail Aranas from Scripturient  for nominating me for this award! : )





I saw this award on some of the blogs I follow, but honestly I didn't really know what it was for.  And I never thought that I'd actually ever receive this award, so you can say for sure that I was pretty shocked and over the top excited when Alex left a comment saying that I had been nominated, even though at the time, I still had no idea what this award was about.  But now, after finally doing some research and figuring out what this award means, I must say that I am very honored and again very thankful to Alex for choosing my blog.  And then I got a second nomination from Gail over at Scripturient, shortly after the first nomination!  How awesome is that?  I never thought I would get nominated once, but instead I got nominated TWICE!!  I am so very happy and honored that both these girls liked my blog enough to consider me deserving of this award. : )

Apollyon (The Covenant #4) Review

Title: Apollyon

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Age Group: Young Adult

My Rating: 4.5 / 5


Goodreads Summary:

Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.

Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.

The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.

Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.
