Review: Spellcaster (Spellbound #2) by Cara Lynn Shultz

After breaking a centuries-old romantic curse, Emma Connor is (almost) glad to get back to normal problems. Although...it's not easy dealing with the jealous cliques and gossip that rule her exclusive Upper East Side prep, even for a seventeen-year-old newbie witch. Having the most-wanted boy in school as her eternal soul mate sure helps ease the pain, especially since wealthy, rocker-hot Brendan Salinger is very good at staying irresistibly close...

But something dark and hungry is using Emma's and Brendan's deepest fears to reveal damaging secrets and destroy their trust in each other. And Emma's crash course in ├╝berspells may not be enough to keep them safe...or to stop an inhuman force bent on making their unsuspected power its own.

Betrayed Blog Tour: Character Interview

Hey Guys, today I have an awesome character interview with Lil from Betrayed by Ednah Walters. So keep reading for this fun and entertaining interview! Some deep secrets will revealed! Plus a giveaway at the end! So keep reading!
Lil isn't just an average teenager. She's one of the Nephilim--the descendants of humans and angels--which gives her some serious psi skills and a mission for redemption. Just when Lil thinks she's found a balance between her normal life with human friends and her training to become a Guardian, she's warned that someone close to her will betray her. When the boy she loves starts acting strangely and one of her human friends acquires a supernatural ability, Lil begins to realize that someone is manipulating the people she loves... and won't stop until she's been lured to the dark side.

Review: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

To survive in a ruined world, she must embrace the darkness…

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten. Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them—the vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself dies and becomes one of the monsters.

Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend—a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decide what and who is worth dying for… again.

Enter Julie Kagawa's dark and twisted world as an unforgettable journey begins.

ALA 2012 Blogger Meet Up!

TIME CHANGE!! WE ARE MAKING IT 5:30-7:30! I didn't realize ALA ended earlier! So we have an earlier time so you can still go to the Great YA BLOGGER MEETUP!! 

Hey Guys! 
So Zareen from Reach for the Stars and the Books and I realized that we really can't do much at the Great YA Blogger Meetup at ALA this year. Since it takes place at a bar, and we are underage, we can't really drink, or eat anything at the meetup. And since that is a time we all eat, we decided we should go out somewhere more teen friendly where we can meetup with other bloggers and eat something at the same time!

So we are planning a dinner/ hangout for any one who loves YA, whether you are a blogger, author, or just a YA fanatic! Everyone is welcome, it will be super casual, and fun! You all should come, it's a great way to meet other great people and just relax! And if you are going to the Great YA Blogger Meetup see if you can drop by both places, I know everyone would love to say hi!

Oh and the venue is:

Saturday,  June 23, 2012 at  California Pizza Kitchen  which is about a 15 minute walk from the convention center. But there is also a busing service for 4 dollars a day which can also get you there on time. We are thinking about having it start around 5:30-7:30PM since we all need to eat, and if you are going to both meet ups you can make it to both with this timing :D. Here is a small map and the address:

Anaheim Garden Walk
321 W. Katella Ave.
Anaheim, CA 92802
On Katella Ave.
(714) 991-0305

So everyone is welcome! This is all self paid, you buy what you want, and just total "laid back-ness". So yea come and join us, it will be a ton of fun!

However, this time, she's not only fighting vampires but a raging monster within her that endangers what's left of her humanity. And when a deadly disease threatens to take her best friend's life, Brooke tries to convince Kaitlynn to accept a monster of her own: becoming a Zao Duh.As a former slave to the Pijawikas, Mirko is driven to protect the innocent at all costs, but he has never faced a foe more formidable than Zladislov. And when the Commission bears down on Brooke, Mirko finds the stream of enemies runs deeper than he ever imagined.

Review: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian (Lux, #1)
Starting over sucks.When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth. Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marks me.You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don't kill him first, that is.

Evolution, Me and other Freaks of Nature by Robin Brande

Hey Guys! 
So today I have a friend doing a guest vlog review on the blog today! Since I have been getting behind a bunch of friends have joined in to help me catch up! So now not only do you get my opinions on books, but you get other views from other teens as well :). So today I am featuring Mona Lisa (Awesome name right!), a senior at my high school, who is doing a vlog review for Evolution, Me and other Freaks of Nature by Robin Brande!
Evolution, Me & Other Freaks of Nature

Your best friend hates you. The guy you liked hates you. Your entire group of friends hates you.
All because you did the right thing.
Welcome to life for Mena, whose year is starting off in the worst way possible. She's been kicked out of her church group and no one will talk to her, not even her own parents. No one except for Casey, her supersmart lab partner in science class, who's pretty funny for the most brilliant guy on earth.
And when Ms. Shepherd begins the unit on evolution, school becomes more dramatic than Mena could ever imagine . . . and her own life is about to evolve in some amazing and unexpected ways.
