CRESCENDO by Becca Fitzpatrick Excerpts

  Okay so Fallen Archangel, which is the official Hush, Hush fansite along with Becca Fitzpatrick herself revealed awesome news!  CRESCENDO the sequel to Hush, Hush now has an earlier release date but sadly it is still this fall and not this summer.

  They also posted the Prologue and 1st Chapter of the new book if you would like to check it out head over there. (  I cannot wait.  Patch is so YA yummy!

That is all for now, just had to share that news.  I was excited.  Oh wait Fallen Archangel is also giving away an Arc of CRESCENDO in their ultimate fan contest and although I am not a fan of ARCs I may enter anyways because I like I said I am excited.  Also do you think this cover is as Epic as the Hush, Hush cover?  My opinion is no but I still like it; Hush, Hush cover just took my breath away!

Glass House by Rachel Caine (Review)

For and excerpt click on the picture

I am a little disappointed in my friends. Why you ask? Oh I will tell you why...BECAUSE NOBODY TOLD ME HOW AWESOME THE Morganville Vampire Series IS! That is a crime against me. Seriously? No one even thought to mention it in passing?

The characters are awesome, the story is awesomer and the writing is so well paced that it is awesomest! I love how the vamps aren't some whimsical creatures everybody lust over. They are realistic and scare the humans shitless!

Now, I know some of you are all about Michael Glass and hey I don't blame you. But don't over look Shane. I am all about Shane.

Claire is an okay girl but I fear though she is ok now with the mistakes she makes; she may grow up into a TSTL character so I hope she has some growth because yes teens mess up but they also eventually learn from those mistakes. So the mistakes from Glass House I hope aren't repeated in Dead Girls' Dance.

Eve I haven't really figured out yet but I do like her. She is a sweet kid which she tries to disguise beneath her Goth...Actually every Goth kid I have met usually ARE the sweetest kids. I am glad Rachel Caine has picked up on that Kudos.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked out this book but I was pleasantly surprised. The ending was pure torture and I loved it so much I laughed while saying, "Oh Rachel Caine, you..." fill in the blank.

I finished this book the night before she spoke at a luncheon I attended so I wasn't surprised at her sense of humor and ballsy-ness. Anyone willing to end a book for teens like that HAS to have humor and BALLS!

My Soul to Keep by Rachel Vincent (Review)

My Soul to Keep dug a little deeper than the previous in this series and it was completely heartbreaking and emotional which made it the best so far!

Rachel Vincent really turned the characters inside out so we learned a lot more about them and they jumped off the pages and became real to me this time around. Where the other books in the series were good, My Soul to Keep went beyond just good it was haunting. MSTKeep had me on the edge of my seat, I believe my heart literally broke a few times as I whimpered, "Nooo, why are you doing this?" I am sure I got a few odd lucks but I never looked up from the pages to see.

Kaylee is plunging deeper into her new world and new abilities and she is growing as a woman and a Bean Sidhe. Nash pulls out a lot of surprises and I think this time around he is more imperfect than he was portrayed in the other books. Tod was wonderful, delightfully charming as always and but he also shows us a lot more.

This is all around a darker story but one that us readers can relate to somewhat and Vincent expands Kaylee, Nash and Tod more and what we know about them. Relationships evolve into completely new things. The ending truly will have you closing the book with a heavy sigh and googling when the next book will be released,

My Soul to Keep was excellent!
Keep Reading,

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (Updated Review)

Beautiful Creature Original Review

Okay I can admit when I was wrong and I was wrong. This book is better than I thought. How do I know? Because it has been months since finishing and I am still thinking about it. It is a good story even with it's mammoth size...I now wish it was longer and still I wish there was more Macon!
