Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones  to be released Oct. 21st 2014

“Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there’s that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she’s ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancé who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life.

A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it.

We’re doomed.” -Goodreads

I cannot wait for the seventh book in the Charley Davidson series! If you read the last book, you definitely know that cliffhanger left your jaw hanging, and now I just need the next book to close it back! My copy’s already preordered (since before the sixth book came out, lol) and so now all I can do is wait until next month. Something else I can do? A FLASH GIVEAWAY! Today I’ll be giving away a book charm bracelet with the first six books of this series :D So you can wait on the seventh book with me!!!

MARY: The Summoning (Bloody Mary #1) by Hillary Monahan

MARY: The Summoning (Bloody Mary #1)

by Hillary Monahan
Official Site | Goodreads |  Twitter
4star
Format: Kindle/ ARC

Published: Sept. 2nd 2014 by Disney-Hyperion

Genre: YA, Horror/Thriller

Amazon | Kindle | Book Depository

“There is a right way and a wrong way to summon her.

Jess had done the research. Success requires precision: a dark room, a mirror, a candle, salt, and four teenage girls. Each of them–Jess, Shauna, Kitty, and Anna–must link hands, follow the rules . . . and never let go.

A thrilling fear spins around the room the first time Jess calls her name: “Bloody Mary. Bloody Mary. BLOODY MARY.” A ripple of terror follows when a shadowy silhouette emerges through the fog, a specter trapped behind the mirror.

Once is not enough, though–at least not for Jess. Mary is called again. And again. But when their summoning circle is broken, Bloody Mary slips through the glass with a taste for revenge on her lips. As the girls struggle to escape Mary’s wrath, loyalties are questioned, friendships are torn apart, and lives are forever altered.

A haunting trail of clues leads Shauna on a desperate search to uncover the legacy of Mary Worth. What she finds will change everything, but will it be enough to stop Mary–and Jess–before it’s too late?” -Goodreads

The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons  to be released Feb. 10th 2015

“In the vein of The Handmaid’s Tale, a haunting, yet hopeful, stand­alone novel from the author of the Article 5 trilogy

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15­year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.” -Macmillan Tor Teen Winter 2015 Catalog


Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier to be released Jan. 6 2015

- I positively LOVED the Ruby Red Trilogy and can’t wait to read more from Kirsten Gier!

“A new trilogy brimming with mystery, humor, and romance from New York Times–bestselling author Kerstin Gier!

Liv has been dealing with a lot lately. She and her family have just moved in with her mother’s new boyfriend in London, and she’s starting over (again) at a new school. But Liv isn’t sure that explains her dreams, which have gone from odd to…well, bizarre. Lately, her nighttime hours have been filled with talking stone statues, mysterious corridors, and creepy rituals conducted by four boys in a graveyard.

The strangest part is that Liv recognizes the boys. They’re classmates from her new school, and they seem to know things about her that they couldn’t possibly know…unless they actually are in her dreams? Luckily, Liv never could resist a good mystery, and all four of those boys are pretty cute…” -Macmillan Winter 2015 Catalog

The Young Elites  by Marie Lu (review here) to be released October 7th 2014

Top Ten Book Characters That Would Be Sitting At My Lunch Table

This was a bit hard, as I found myself not asking who would I want to sit with, but who on earth would possibly want to sit with me, lol! I spent my high school lunch times in our school library :/

I’m a bit goofy (clumsy,) love to laugh (easily amused,) and enjoy educated conversations (nerd) and I would love to surround myself with the same! Continue reading

ARC August Updates

So far, ARC August has been going pretty well! It would be going even better had I stuck to my schedule of reading and reviewing one book every three days, and had I stopped requesting books from NG & EW, but you take what you can get, right?

I’m currently reading The Bargain by Stephanie Reed and I’m still getting through The Boleyn Deceit by Laura Anderson.

Here’s my list again! The ones enclosed in asterisks (*) are ARC’s that mysteriously disappeared from netgalley, which means I cannot submit feedback, which therefore makes reading them pointless right now. The ones crossed out are the one’s I’ve finished, and you can click on them for the review:

Here’s a list of all of my unread ARC’s and I shall read them in the order listed:
 
The Bargain
Summerhouse with a Swimming Pool
The Forsaken
The Boleyn Deceit
Evil Librarian
Inland
The Outcasts
Innocence
This is Sarah
I am the Mission
The Quick
The Moses Virus
