The Undead Pool / Kim Harrison / February 25, 2014

I really enjoy urban fantasy and this series has been on my radar for a while. I just haven’t taken the plunge and gotten into it. Hopefully this will be the push I need to start it, I rea the first book in the Madison Avery series and thought it was a very interesting take on reapers, so hopefully The Hollows will live up to my expectations. 

Under a Silent Moon / Elizabeth Haynes / April 15, 2014

This is the first in a new detective series, which tells the story of two mysterious deaths that happen on the same night on the outskirts of the same town. Told over a period of six days the story is fast moving and full of shocking details. It is told from multiple points of view, so it will be interesting to see how all the voices mesh. 

We Are the Goldens / Dana Reinhardt / May 27, 2014

A story about a girl who idolizes her older sister. Upon learning a secret about her sister the girl must decide how she is going to handle it. Will she continue to be the confidante she has always been, or will she falter under pressure and ruin their close relationship? This is a super short book, fewer than 200 pages that I think will be a fast, interesting read. 

Welcome to the Dark House / Laurie Faria Stolarz / July 22, 2014

I really loved Stolarz’s Blue if for Nightmare series and I can’t wait to start this story. The concept is very interesting, seven teens have won a contest to meet a famous horror director and things go a bit dark. To survive they have to face their darkest demons and nightmares.

The Wind is Not a River / Brian Payton / January 7, 2014

A historical fiction novel that tells the story of a husband and wife separated during World War II. John travels to Alaska to investigate the Japanese invasion of some Alaskan islands and is lost in the wilderness, fending for his life against the elements and trying to avoid detection from the enemy. Helen his wife is also trying to find her husband and bring him back home. I really like this time period and this seems like a really well written and interesting story. 

This starts the January 27th haul. 

The 5th Wave / Rick Yancey / May 7, 2013

I really like invasion stories and this one seems to be getting a lot of great reviews. I have been lusting after this book for so long and I am so excited to own it, in a very nice hardcover edition no less. I skimmed the first few pages and it is going to be amazing.

All the Truth That’s in Me / Julie Berry / September 26, 2013

This is another historical fiction about a young girl, Judith, who disappears with her best friend for two years. Only Judith returns, disfigured and unable to speak. When her town is attacked she must make the choice to recover her voice or keep her secrets and risk changing her world forever. 

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea / April Genevieve Tucholke / August 15, 2013

First of all, I love this cover. I don’t usually gush over covers but for some reason this one just really appeals to me. Second, the Devil in stories really intrigues me. If this boy really turns out to be the devil I don’t even know how I will handle it. 

Champion / Marie Lu / November 5, 2013

I have no idea what this book is about because I don’t want to spoil the series for myself. I also got Prodigy which will be in a later STS, bus still need to get Legend so I can marathon read these! 

Children of the Revolution / Peter Robinson / August 15, 2013

This is the latest book in the long Inspector Banks series. I don’t know much about it, just that it is a mystery book and it seems like a very good series.

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know if any sound interesting to you or if you have read any of them. I can't wait to see some of your shelves!!

Blog Tour - Chemical Reaction by Christina Thompson Review & Giveaway

Title: Chemical Reaction
Author: Christina Thompson
Published: October 7, 2013
Series: Chemical Attraction #2
Format Read: ebook
How I Acquired It: RAVBT
Date Finished: March 3, 2014
Find at: Amazon | B&N | Goodreads
*This book was provided in exchange for an honest review.

In Chemical Reaction, the sequel to Chemical Attraction, FBI Agent Joe Roberts and his fiancée, Dr. Madeline Pierce, must track down a rage-producing nano-drug before it devastates the nation.

Staying in Detroit with the FBI, Madeline works to develop an antidote from the confiscated journals. She clashes with the women from Joe’s past. In West Michigan, Joe hunts for the bio-weapon. With a history as a player, he’s worried his relationship with Madeline is at risk. Working apart, they attempt to focus on the threat.

Before Joe returns, agents are killed, Madeline is abducted, and the deadly nano-drug is put on the market. Without the journals, the mastermind needs Madeline to reproduce the drug.

While she plays a dangerous game of deceit, Joe struggles to put his fears of losing her aside to find the weapon first. Her life, their future, and the nation’s security are in jeopardy. Joe must now choose between his personal desire and his professional integrity. Can he live with the consequences?


This story had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was thrilling and suspenseful in a very realistic way. Thompson created a story that is believable to a point where I can imagine something like it happening. While the story is a great one, it was really the characters that did it for me.

The relationship between Joe and Madeline is one that seems to be continually tested. And to me, those are the best types. To know that someone is willing to fight for you time and again really strengthens the bonds you share. There were so many challenges they had to face, but they do it to get back to each other. Talk about love. The secondary characters were really quite enjoyable as well and added something great to the story.

I also really enjoyed the fact that this story picks up just a little after where the first left off. It added a sense of urgency, as not much time has pasted. But this also adds to the realistic tones as I can imagine FBI agents are kept quite busy. Overall, this was an awesome, fun, thrilling read and I hope to read more from Thompson!

Blog Tour - Drowning by Rachel Firasek Review and Giveaway

Title: Drowing
Author: Rachel Firasek
Published: October 19, 2013
Series: Tears of Sin #1
Format Read/Pages: eBook/263
How I Acquired It: Itching for Books
Date Finished: March 2, 2014
Find at: Amazon | B&N | Goodreads
*This book was provided in exchange for an honest review.
**Drowning is a New Adult Contemporary Romance suited for 18+ due to some violence, language, and sexual content**

"I dare you."

Those words would change adrenaline junkie, Alice Harrison's life forever. She's a party girl that doesn't believe in love until she meets a man that only writes about it.

Seth James escaped his overbearing father and moved into one of the James family's vacant condos, hoping to create the music he loves in peace. But the fragile calm he's envisioned shatters when a tiny woman with a world full of energy bounces out of the elevator and nearly takes him out.

With the patience of a saint, Seth seeks the dark that keeps Alice from enjoying life. He challenges her to exorcise the demons in her past in order to discover the true meaning of love. But when the walls fall down, the hidden deceptions will bare the ugly truth about a woman drowning in sorrow and a man who may not know how to be her hero.


This is a very real and intense story from author. Rachel Friasek. I found the characters to be very relatable and the story believable while not being over done. Drowning is a highly emotional story and not for the faint of heart. 

I really enjoyed how real and relatable the characters were. I could see myself going through some of their issues without it being over the top and cheesy. There were real issues, such as abuse, that were tackled in this story. Mostly in a way that does not exploit it and make the characters feel contrived. The weight of guilt is a very powerful thing, and I feel that in Alice, we see how it can really affect a person and there everyday lives. 

Firasek created a story that was gripping and emotional, with characters that were able to capture my attention and make me believe they belong with each other. I have not read any of her other work, but I will definitely be checking it out in the future. 

4 Stars


Rachel Firasek spends her days daydreaming of stories and her nights putting the ideas to ink. She has spent a dull life following the rules, meeting deadlines, and toeing the line, but in her made up worlds, she can let the wild side loose. Her wonderful husband and three children support her love of the written word and only ask for the occasional American Idol or Swamp People quality hour.

She has a philosophy about love. It must devastate or it isn’t truly worth loving. She hopes that you all find your devastating love and cling to it with all your heart!

This is a weekly meme that is hosted by Tynga's Reviews, so be sure to check there on Saturdays and see what everyone else has added to their shelves!

This STS continues my ALA haul from Jan. 26th. All title link to Goodreads.

Sorry to get this up so late, I have started a new full-time job in addition to my part-time job and they are taking up most of my time. 

The Ring & the Crown / Melissa de la Cruz / April 1, 2014

I am really interested in jumping into this story. I sound like it will be quite an adventure. I found the description on the inside cover of the actual book to be a bit off putting and all over the place. But the summary on Goodreads was much better and actually told me a little about the story and I think I am going to enjoy it. 

Sea of Shadows / Kelley Armstrong / April 8, 2014

A new series from Kelley Armstrong. The first book introduces us to sisters, Moria and Ashyn, who are tasked with the dangerous job of quieting enraged souls of the damned. They get separated in their task and each is joined by an unlikely ally. This seems like it will be the start of a pretty awesome fantasy series!

Searching for Sky / Jillian Cantor / May 13, 2014

The island is all Sky has ever known. She and River have always lived there in seclusion, until the day River sees a boat. Whisked off the island and thrust into a new world that she does not understand, Sky has trouble adapting to the new life she must live. Reunited with a grandmother she does not know and separated from River, the only constant she has ever had, is a challenge she must face, while trying to figure out a way to get them back there. I am really interested in reading this and finding out how they ended up on an island alone in the first place. 

The Secret Side ofEmpty / Marie E. Andreu / March 11, 2014

A story about a young high school student, M.T., who happens to also be an undocumented immigrant. This really intrigues me. The author pulls from her personal experiences to write a, hopefully authentic book. I haven’t really read anything of this sort and am really looking forward to the story.

Seven for a Secret / Lyndsay Faye / September 17, 2013

The second book in the Timothy Wilde Mysteries series finds the talented officer astounded and disgusted by his discovery of “blackbirders,” people who take free northerners of color from their homes and sell them in the south as slaves. I have not read the first book in this series, but I know that it is available at my library and definitely plan on checking it out soon.

Sex & Violence / Carrie Mesrobian / October 1, 2013

This sounds super interesting to me. Evan Carter likes sex. It has always come easy for him, and without consequences. Until one night, the seventeen year old chosses the wrong girl and is beaten quite badly. His father moves them to a remote town where he can heal. Evan is hoping this place, as annoying as it is, will be just what he needs to separate sex and violence. 

Steadfast / Claudia Gray / March 1, 2014

I do not know much about this story, as I don’t want to spoil myself for the first one. Steadfast follows Spellcaster, which I have not read, but plan to soon!

The Summer I Found You / Jolene Perry / March 1, 2014

I don’t really read a lot of contemporary, but I am looking to get into the genre and I believe this will be a nice story to help spur that on. It follows Kate after she is dumped by her boyfriend and still dealing with her type 1 diabetes diagnosis. She meets Aiden, a young army veteran who is home trying to deal with his new life with a disability. I really want to see how these two help each other, I am assuming, heal and to find all that life has to offer them. 

The Treatment / Suzanne Young / April 29, 2014

I have no idea how I have shown any restraint and not devoured this book yet. I loved The Program and I really hope this one lives up to my expectations. The premise of The Program was really, really interesting to me. In a time where teen/young adult suicide is at an all-time high, the government (I think) implements this program that if, they think you are on the verge of suicide they take you and place you in a facility where you are “rehabilitated.” Essentially they take all of your memories that they deem sad or inappropriate. The first book was amazing and I can’t wait to dive into this one. 

Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives / Sarah Weinman

This is a collection of stories from female creators of psychological thriller and suspense. Authors include Shirley Jackson, Vera Caspary, and Margaret Millar.

Blog Tour - Uncovering You by Scarlett Edwards Review & Giveaway

Title: Uncovering You: The Contract
Author: Scarlett Edwards
Published: March 27, 2014
Series: Uncovering You #1
Format Read/Pages: eBook/90
How I Acquired It: Book Enthusiast Promotions
Date Finished: March 1, 2014
Find at: Goodreads
*This book was provided in exchange for an honest review.

When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what's waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind.

Reality is much worse:

A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning.

I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude. The only information I have about my captor are the two small letters inked at the bottom:


Armed with only my memories, I must do everything I can to avoid becoming ensnared in his twisted mind games. But in the end, it all comes down to one choice:

Resist and die.

Or submit, and sign my life away.


This was a very fast read and that made it even more enjoyable. I really would have liked to continue on, but the anticipation of what comes next is something that I like. This is a darker story then others I have reviewed on this blog, but still a very enjoyable read. 

The writing style took a little bit to get into, the jumping back and forth through time was awkward at times, but each time jump is clearly marked and that makes it easier. There are a few passages at the beginning of the story that really intrigued me, they are of what is to come in future pieces of the story and make me want continue on with the series. 

4 Stars


I open my eyes to the brilliant expanse of my prison. I test the air with my nose. There’s no more odor.
I feel groggy, as if waking up from a long sleep. How long have I been out?
I push myself to a sitting position and look around. The tiles are clean. The vomit is gone. There are two jars close by that were not there before.
I crawl over and look at them. One is filled with water. The other is empty.
Without thought I clutch the handle of the first and start to chug. I spit the first mouthful out to clean my mouth, but the rest goes down quickly. My stomach rumbles in protest after my umpteenth heavy gulp, but my body needs the hydration.
Two more drafts and I set the jar down.
Only then does it strike me that the water might be drugged.
I start to feel sick again. I’m in the process of jamming my fingers to the back of my throat when the absurdity of what I’m doing strikes me.
You’re already a prisoner, and as vulnerable as you’re going to get. Why spike the water?
A hysterical sort of laughter builds in my chest. It’s the laughter that comes when all the lights have gone out and all hope has been extinguished. It’s the laughter of a woman on the edge of sanity.
I bolt to my feet, shaking with laughter. “What do you want from me?” I scream at the sky. I spread my arms and spin. “Show yourself! Show me who you are!”
I stood up too fast. A wave of light-headedness overcomes me. I lose my balance and fall.
My head bounces off the floor. Everything goes black again. 

About the Author:
I live near beautiful Seattle, Washington. I grew up reading all types of fantasy books before discovering the wonderful world of romances in high school. Now, I spend most of my time writing about sexy men and the women who love them.

Waiting on Wednesday #3

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking theSpine and is a way to showcase upcoming released that you are excited for!

Title: Dreams of Gods & Monsters
Author: Laini Taylor
Series:  Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3
Release Date: April 8, 2014
Find at: Amazon | B&N | Goodreads

By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her, if there can even be a future for the chimaera in war-ravaged Eretz.

Common enemy, common cause.

When Jael's brutal seraph army trespasses into the human world, the unthinkable becomes essential, and Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people.

And, perhaps, for themselves. Toward a new way of living, and maybe even love.

But there are bigger threats than Jael in the offing. A vicious queen is hunting Akiva, and, in the skies of Eretz ... something is happening. Massive stains are spreading like bruises from horizon to horizon; the great winged stormhunters are gathering as if summoned, ceaselessly circling, and a deep sense of wrong pervades the world.

What power can bruise the sky?

From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

At the very barriers of space and time, what do gods and monsters dream of? And does anything else matter?

Why I am waiting:
I am waiting for this story so I can marathon the whole thing. I read the first book last year and lived it and have been holding off on the second so that I don’t have to cry myself to sleep when I can’t read the third one right away. I really cannot wait to be able to read this series all the way through. Karou is one of my favorite female protagonists and this series is so beautifully written that I can’t get over it all. I really just love everything about this series. If you have not checked it out I highly suggest you do! I have heard nothing but great things about the second book, whit people saying it is better than the first. So here’s to hoping the third outshines both and is a great conclusion to the series.

This is a weekly meme that is hosted by Tynga's Reviews, so be sure to check there on Saturdays and see what everyone else has added to their shelves!

This STS continues my ALA haul from Jan. 26th. All titles link to Goodreads.

A Matter of Souls / Denise Lewis Patrick / April 1, 2014

This is a collection of short stories written about African Americans that spans centuries and continents. I dropped the ball on this one; it would have been a great read for Black History month. I am still really looking forward to reading these stories. 

Meridian / Josin L. Mcquein / April 22, 2014

I don’t know much about this because it is the sequel to Arclight and I don’t want to spoil myself for it. I have Arclight on order and Can’t Wait for it to come in so I can dive right into these two!

Mind of Winter / Laura Kasischke / March 25, 2014

This is a bit mysterious and sounds pretty interesting. It seems that Holly and her husband Eric traveled to Russia to adopt a baby, Tatiana. They ignored all the warning from the superstitious nurses and took Tatiana home with them. Not thirteen years later, Tatiana has grown into a beautiful young lady, but seems to be having a shift in personality. Strange things keep happening around the house and now Holly is stuck in a blizzard all alone with disturbing Tatiana, the daughter that she no longer recognizes. 

Murder in Pigalle / Cara Black / March 4, 2014

Already stressing about having to deal with the rowdy French football fans, five months pregnant Private Investigator Aimee Leduc has a lot on her plate. When a serial rapist starts terrorizing a Paris neighborhood, Aimee must try and find the man before any more young girls get victimized. This seems like it will be a very good mystery, I am also excited that it is set in Paris, a place I have always wanted to visit.

No One Else Can HaveYou / Kathleen Hale / January 7, 2014

I have already read this and I loved it. It was witty and funny with dark undertones. I really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone that likes a mystery and doesn’t mind a teenage girl taking over the investigation. It is set in a small Wisconsin town that is very quiet and never has any serious dangers afoot. Until a high school student is found murdered in a cornfield. They dead girl’s best friend, Kippy, goes on a hunt for the killer when the sheriff is content to lock up the boyfriend, who he has a grudge against. There were some parts that got a bit ridiculous for me, but overall I really enjoyed it, it was a fast read, which I will hopefully be doing a review of soon (when I get back on the review train). 

Perfect Lies / Kiersten White / February 18, 2014

This is also a sequel that I have not read, but have Mind Games on hold at the library. Don’t know much about them, but I am excited to start.

Precious Thing / Colette McBeth / March 4, 2014

Friends since high school, Rachel and Clara are going in complete opposite directions. Rachel has turned from the shy, awkward one, into a woman that has her life in order while Clara has gone from the girl everyone wants to be friends with to a life that is spiraling out of control. Now Clara is missing and Rachel may not have the chance to help her get her life back on track. I am really interested in this because news journalism, Rachel’s occupation, is intriguing to me and I want to see how it shapes the story.

Reconstructing Amelia / Kimberly McCreight / April 2, 2013

This whole concept is very cool to me. A mother is trying to find out what really happened in the last days of her daughter’s life so she sifts through her emails, text messages, social media profiles and phone logs to see what was really going through her daughter’s mind when she (supposedly) killed herself. I think it is going to be a great mystery and can’t wait to read it.

Remnants: Season of Wonder / Lisa T. Bergren / February 26, 2014

Set in a futuristic dystopia there is a prophesy that state seven children will be bore on a certain day and when they grow up they will become the protectors of humankind. So that was a really bad summary I just gave, but that is pretty much the gist of it. Of course there is an opposing group that they must face and I feel like this is going to be a pretty awesome adventure. It is the first book in a trilogy, so hopefully there will be enough action to carry it forward. 

Renegade / Debra Driza / May 13, 2014

I have Mila 2.0 and for some reason it keeps on being put on the back burner, but I really need to read it soon or I will have renewed it to the max! In the first book we are introduced to a girl who discovers she is an experiment in artificial intelligence. Forced to go on the run from two groups, one that wants to kill her and one that wants to unlock the hidden powers inside her, she must face what she really is and try and find out to what extent she is different. Apparently there is a huge cliffhanger at the end of the first book, so I am extremely happy to have the second one to start right away. 

Feel free to leave a comment and let me know if any sound interesting to you or if you have read any of them. I can't wait to see some of your shelves!!

Waiting on Wednesday #2

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breakingthe Spine and is a way to showcase upcoming released that you are excited for!

Title: Ruins
Author: Dan Wells
Series:  Partials Sequence #3
Release Date: March 11, 2014
Find at: Amazon | B&N | Goodreads

Kira, Samm, and Marcus fight to prevent a final war between Partials and humans in the gripping final installment in the Partials Sequence, a series that combines the thrilling action of The Hunger Games with the provocative themes of Blade Runner and The Stand.

There is no avoiding it—the war to decide the fate of both humans and Partials is at hand. Both sides hold in their possession a weapon that could destroy the other, and Kira Walker has precious little time to prevent that from happening. She has one chance to save both species and the world with them, but it will only come at great personal cost.

Why I am waiting:
I have read the first book, have the second and am now just waiting for the third so I can marathon them all. I really like Kira; she is a pretty badass MC and is going through some self-discovery in these books. They are very fast reads and enjoyable.

Let me know what you think of my selection and leave a link to your post so I can check it out!
