New Book Releases January 31, 2012

Enter for a chance to win in my 100 Follower Giveaway

Here are the books that are being released on Tuesday, January 31, 2012, that I want to read. Destiny and Deception is a must read since this is the 4th book in the series. Incarnate and Article 5 are on my tbr.

Destiny and Deception (13 to Life #4) by Shannon Delany

The sensational fourth novel in the 13 to Life series sees Jessica and the Rusakuvas fighting to overcome one of their biggest challenges yet--the possibility of a cure for lycanthropy. With the threat of the mafia seemingly gone and the company's headquarters in Junction destroyed, Pietr Rusakova is adjusting to being a normal teen and Jess is realizing normalcy may not be what she wanted after all. But both Jess and Cat know the truth--that normal can't be taken for granted. Their precious cure isn't permanent--and when a new danger stalks into their small town, Alexi decides he must overcome his issues with the mother who abandoned him to be raised by wolves and make a brand new deal to save his adopted family.

Incarnate (Newsoul #1) by Jodi Meadows

Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.

Even Ana’s own mother thinks she’s a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she’ll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are suspicious and afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?

Sam believes Ana’s new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana’s enemies—human and creature alike—let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.

Article 5 (Article 5 #1) by Kristen Simmons

New York, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., have been abandoned.

The Bill of Rights has been revoked, and replaced with the Moral Statutes.

There are no more police—instead, there are soldiers. There are no more fines for bad behavior—instead, there are arrests, trials, and maybe worse. People who get arrested usually don't come back.

Seventeen-year-old Ember Miller is old enough to remember that things weren’t always this way. Living with her rebellious single mother, it’s hard for her to forget that people weren’t always arrested for reading the wrong books or staying out after dark. It’s hard to forget that life in the United States used to be different.

Ember has perfected the art of keeping a low profile. She knows how to get the things she needs, like food stamps and hand-me-down clothes, and how to pass the random home inspections by the military. Her life is as close to peaceful as circumstances allow.

That is, until her mother is arrested for noncompliance with Article 5 of the Moral Statutes. And one of the arresting officers is none other than Chase Jennings…the only boy Ember has ever loved.

Cinder Review

Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1)Cinder by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

When I started reading Cinder I had no idea what to expect. While I did enjoy reading Cinder, I felt that there wasn't enough depth or detail in the storyline (this may come later since this is a 4 part series). We don't really get a lot of background information on the world that Cinder is living in. I still can't figure out why Cyborgs are looked down upon as lower class citizens.

The overall concept of Cinder was interesting and imaginative, but I don't think it lived up to it's potential. The writing and descriptions of the futuristic setting are very creative. I felt I understood how things were, even if I didn't know why. I enjoyed that the things we are not familiar with in this futuristic setting were explained as they came up in the story.

The plot does move along nicely. Although I really did not care for the political aspect, which there was a lot of. And I guessed the big reveal pretty early in the story so there was no surprise there for me. Reading along while everyone in the story slowly catches on to the big secret wasn't as exciting as it could have been. I'm happy that part of the story took place in the first book.

Cinder is told mainly from Cinder's POV, although there are a few chapters from Kai's POV to change it up a little. The 2 main characters are both likable and interesting enough. I appreciated their slow moving friendship/relationship and can see potential in the pairing. Although I felt that Kai was not focused on enough for my liking. Overall, I enjoyed reading Cinder. There is an air of predictability about it, but there are enough added aspects to the fairytale to keep readers interested.

When an unnatural riptide sweeps lifeguard Tristan Hart out to sea for three days and then dumps him back on the shore of Coney Island, it’s the start of the Sea Court claiming its own.

Now Tristan must fight for his life, the lives of his friends, and his humanity (if he still wants it), while competing in a race for a throne as ancient as the gods.

Seductive, duplicitous, and with an agenda of their own, these are not the mermaids you know.

Cold Kiss - Review

I read Cold Kiss back in October, but I am just getting around to posting this review. What's funny is that a few of the things that Wren hates about her undead boyfriend (he is cold, hard and smooth like marble, has no heartbeat, and she has to wrap herself in a blanket to be near him) are things that Bella didn't mind about Edward.

Cold KissCold Kiss by Amy Garvey

Publication Date: September 20, 2011
Page Count: 292
Published by: Harper Teen
Source: Library

Synopsis from Goodreads:

It was a beautiful, warm summer day, the day Danny died.

Suddenly Wren was alone and shattered. In a heartbroken fury, armed with dark incantations and a secret power, Wren decides that what she wants--what she "must" do--is to bring Danny back.

But the Danny who returns is just a shell of the boy Wren fell in love with. His touch is icy; his skin, smooth and stiff as marble; his chest, cruelly silent when Wren rests her head against it.

Wren must keep Danny a secret, hiding him away, visiting him at night, while her life slowly unravels around her. Then Gabriel DeMarnes transfers to her school, and Wren realizes that somehow, inexplicably, he can sense the powers that lie within her--and that he knows what she has done. And now Gabriel wants to help make things right.

But Wren alone has to undo what she has wrought--even if it means breaking her heart all over again.

My Thoughts:

I really liked the premise of Cold Kiss - heartbroken teen girl magically brings her boyfriend back from the dead. Only she didn't know what she was getting into since now the boy is no longer 'living', and is, in fact, a walking, talking, pale and lifeless version of who he used to be. He is a Zombie only in that he is undead.

At the beginning of Cold Kiss, Wren has already brought her dead boyfriend, Danny, back to life. And she regrets it big time. I would have loved to read about her struggling with the decision to bring him back, rather than coming in when she had already decided and went through with her plan. I think it would have made a bigger impact on me.

Wren was vulnerable and made a very selfish decision because of her grief and her love for Danny. I liked that she was able to recognize pretty quickly that what she did was wrong. Then along comes Gabriel, a new boy in town, and he takes a liking to Wren. He also figures out pretty quickly what Wren did. He's very understanding and continuously gives Wren space to deal with Danny in her own way. This felt a little too forced to me - a new relationship comes along and outdoes the one before. It's not that it's so unbelievable, it's just seems a little too convenient. Not that I didn't like Gabriel, because I did. He was an interesting character and I would have liked for him (and his sister) to have a bigger part in this story.

Wren’s family was pretty messed up. Her mom keeps the fact that they are witches a secret and they never discuss it. She never taught Wren and her sister how to control their magic. Therefore, Wren has no idea what Danny will be like when she brings him back from the dead. That is my one major complaint about Cold Kiss - Wren had no one in her family to tell her secret to and she wasn't able to ask them for help. I thought she should have went to her Mom or her aunt, which would have opened up the communication and understanding that they are, indeed, a family of witches. In the end, this lack of knowledge didn't stop Wren from being able to figure out a spell to make things right again - magically speaking.

The writing was really good and made for an almost believable story. Cold Kiss is definitely a character driven story. It's not fast paced and there's not much action. But there is a bit of suspense in not knowing what is going to happen with Danny.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Q: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done to get your hands on any particular book?
Boring answer, but I have never done anything crazy to get a book. Maybe I paid too much for a book that I liked when I was a teenager. I looked for it for years and finally bought it when it was cheaper than I had ever seen it before. It was still expensive (for ONE book!) but now I have it and I don't regret the purchase.

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks.

Hardcover, 324 pages

Description from Goodreads: Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he’s a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange – is it attraction? – and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he’s heard of – a human who can communicate with fish.

What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma’s gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she’s the key to saving his kingdom. Soon, Emma can’t deny her feelings for him, but can’t explain them, either – and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings.

Love & Leftovers Review

I literally read Love & Leftovers in 1 1/2 hours last night. Or early this morning. I was trying to stay awake to watch Rafa Nadal at the Australian Open. I didn't plan on reading the entire book, but it was a very quick and easy read since it was in verse. I think I may read it again soon.

Love & LeftoversLove & Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love & Leftovers is told from Marcie's POV through her journal. It's not just a journal, it is poems and letters and song lyrics and they all come together to tell the story. Since this is written in verse you get the bare bones of the story without all the fluff and filler.

I thought this was an interesting book. The reader gets to see life through Marcie's eyes, and it's not always easy. She struggles with the idea of love and what being in love really means. She learns that being upfront and truthful causes less hurt (to both herself and others). I liked that Marcie had to suffer for her actions so she could learn from her mistakes.

I enjoyed Marcie learning how to relate to both of her parents after their divorce. I liked seeing Marcie mature a little and learn that she is not always going to get what she wants.

This is a really quick and easy read. I finished it in 1 1/2 hours because I just couldn't stop reading. All of the characters are believable and likable. Most of them struggle with different versions of loneliness. I felt that emotions and thoughts were expressed very well even though few words are used.

Love & Leftovers was a very satisfying read. It was cute and fun, but it also had an underlying note of lessons to be learned without being preachy.

Wherever You Go - Review

Wherever You GoWherever You Go by Heather Davis

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.5 Stars

Wherever You Go is written with 3 main characters and is told from 3 different POVs. What is strange is that the story has 3 different narratives: first-person, second-person, AND third-person. POVs changed often during chapters.

I feel cheated that I didn't get any backstory on Holly and Rob's relationship. I also didn't learn much about the dynamics of Holly/Rob/Jason before Rob died. Leaving their past out of the story made it hard to care what was happening with them in the present. More information or details would have helped form that connection with the characters.

Wherever You Go tried so desperately to be heartfelt and emotional, but it was just too dull and boring. It lacks any depth of emotion that would have made it interesting. I could not make a connection with any of the characters (except for Aldo who was a secondary character). In the last 40 or so pages the pace picks up a little and I no longer had to force myself to keep reading (because I knew the end was near).

Wherever You Go is not a terrible book. It just didn't have an emotional impact on me. One good thing is that this is a stand alone book, so the ending was complete and satisfying.

Oh. My. and other randomness...

Join me in looking at the pretty. *sigh* This deserves a really big OH. MY.

In the randomness department, I have recently picked up 3 books that were total duds. First was one I requested through NetGalley that I am about halfway through. The description on Goodreads calls it "fast-paced". Sheesh, it's sooo slow I want to take a nap every time I try to read it.

The second one I got from Amazon for $0.99 and it's getting pretty rave reviews on Goodreads. It's has Greek mythology in it and it's a huge mess. 21st century language,a love-sick Eros who was nicked by his own arrow, a whiny Psyche. There's no action or romance or anything that I want to keep reading this book for, and that's unfortunate.

AND I actually picked up a third book that managed to be a dud. But at least I finished reading it. I MADE myself finish it. It was boring and weird - told from 3 POVs. I'll be posting a review of this one.

Then finally FINALLY I picked up something that interests me!! How happy am I that I sent my husband to the library to pick up Cinder. Yay! I'm already on page 108. I like it so far.

And to leave you with another OH. MY. I give you this:

Waiting On Wednesday (8)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Until I Die (Revenants #2) by Amy Plum.

Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: May 8th 2012 by HarperCollins Publishers

Description From Goodreads:
Kate and Vincent have overcome the odds and at last they are together in Paris, the city of lights and love.

As their romance deepens there’s one question they can’t ignore: How are they supposed to be together if Vincent can’t resist sacrificing himself to save others? Although Vincent promises that he’ll do whatever it takes to lead a normal life with Kate, will that mean letting innocent people die? When a new and surprising enemy reveals itself, Kate realizes that even more may be at stake—and that Vincent’s immortality is in jeopardy.

In Die for Me, Amy Plum created a captivating paranormal mythology with immortal revenants and a lush Paris setting. Until I Die is poised to thrill readers with more heart-pounding suspense, spellbinding romance, and a cliff-hanger ending that will leave them desperate for the third and final novel in the series.

You can check out my Review of Die For Me, the first book in this series. It's spoilerific, so beware!

Top Ten Authors I Wish Would Write Another Book (debut authors, authors who seem to have taken a hiatus, OR for those who read classics, authors you wish would have written another book before they passed)

Eeks. I don't know if I can come up with 10. The dead ones are a no brainer, but the rest... I'll try. In no particular order:

(1.) Emily Bronte
I may as well wish for (2.) Charlotte Bronte and (3.) Anne Bronte too.
Can you imagine how much they could have written if they all had lived longer?

(4.) Jane Austen also could have written more amazing stories if she had lived longer.

(5.) John Keats. Poor guy died at 25 believing he had not achieved success. He was not recognized for his work until after he died.

(6.) Jandy Nelson (The Sky Is Everywhere) needs to write another amazing book. Maybe it's too much pressure...

(7.) Justina Chen Headley (North Of Beautiful) One really great book is not enough. Give me more.

Deadly Little Lies (Touch #2) - Review

Deadly Little Lies (Touch, #2)Deadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

Deadly Little Lies is very similar to the first book in the series. Camelia is still the narrator and it seems she has not learned from her previous experiences. I'd like to call her dumb, but that wouldn't be very nice.

From the beginning of Deadly Little Lies, Camelia is in danger. She obviously hasn't learned any self-preservation skills. And without Ben there to help 'protect' her, Camelia is in more danger than ever.

To add to the overall mystery of the book, we get to read journal entries from Camelia's aunt. Even though the journal entries do not tie in directly with the storyline, I believe they help set up the rest of the series. In reading the journal entries you can see the similarities between Camelia and her aunt.

Conveniently, along comes Adam, a new co-worker of Camelia's. He is charming and attractive and takes an instant liking to Camelia. Sound too good to be true? Then it probably is. Ben's wishy washy behavior does not make him more likable. He really runs hot and cold with Camelia, which predictably makes her turn to Adam.

Strange things continue to happen to Camelia. She doesn't know who to trust or who to turn to in her moments of need. By the end she is so confused. And Camelia and Ben are farther apart than ever.

This was another quick and easy read. It's a bit more suspenseful than the first book. The pacing is good and I (sort of) like the characters. Sadly there isn't much character development from the first book. I would like to think that once you've been through a traumatic event, you would learn how to deal with similar circumstances in the future. Camelia's reluctance to admit and face up to problems that arise only show her immaturity.

This really isn't that bad of a series. The writing is good, the pacing is good, the characters are likable but lack any real depth. I mostly have a problem with the fact that every boy/man that meets Camelia is attracted to her/has to have her. And that Camelia is written as a clueless, helpless female.

7 on reserve at the library
and 117 on my Goodreads tbr (does that count? I only add books that I am GOING to read, so they should count.)

I only buy books that I know I am going to love and keep, so I mostly borrow from the library (which is right around the corner and convenient as hell. Plus, I have a well trained husband who does my book fetching for me.)

White Cat - Review

White Cat (Curse Workers, #1)White Cat by Holly Black

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I borrowed White Cat from the library after I saw it on a blog somewhere. I am always leery of reading books that have raving over the top 5 star reviews, but I decided to give it a chance. I picked it up to start reading before bed one night. 3 hours later I was on page 266. The only reason I stopped reading was because I really needed sleep.

Needless to say, this was a very engrossing read. Holly Black managed to create an intriguing alternate world of mobsters and curse workers. I liked that there were no long passages explaining the rules and what not of the curse workers world. Instead we learn everything through the thoughts, actions, and dialog of the main protagonist, Cassel.

I really enjoyed most everything about this book. It has an exciting plot and memorable characters. The action and mystery move the story forward. White Cat is full of twists and turns. It's enough to keep the pages turning. I kept reading so I could learn more about the main character, Cassel, and his family of Curse Workers. Between his own family and the mob, it was really difficult to tell who were the good guys and who was just using Cassell for their own benefit (and why).

I ended up loving Cassell. He faced quite a few huge realizations during White Cat, and he ended up coming out on top in the end. I liked that he stayed true to himself and his beliefs, even after several disturbing family secrets were revealed. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
