In Never to Sleep we get into the head of Kaylee’s awful, yet entertaining, cousin, Sophie. Sophie is going about life as usual, until she runs into Luca. Well, Luca hits her with a door! Anyway, from that moment on, Sophie’s life will flipped upside down. Luca believes she’s something more than human, but what? To readers of the series it’s fairly obvious by the way Sophia is able to “accidentally” cross both of them over to the Netherworld. I absolutely loved seeing more of the Netherworld, especially from new eyes. It’s amazing and terrible, but I cannot get enough! Now that Sophie knows that the world is not as it seems, and she’s something special, maybe she can give her cousin a break? Or maybe not! I’m definitely intrigued […]

Night of the Purple Moon is a very pleasant surprise. I love the idea of seeing a comet, and then having purple sunsets and moons for the weeks following. Of course, not if it would kill me and all of the other adults and older teens in the world! Which is exactly what happens in the novel. Excitement and wonder over the breathtaking sky turned into fear and the struggle to survive in just a matter of hours. The kids of Castine Island must come together and work together in order to ensure their survival, but what about when the older teens hit puberty and become susceptible to the virus in the space dust? I really admired Abby. She stood up and took the leadership role after finding her father […]
Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school? Yeah, I love Shakespeare. For my senior year I had actually registered for the Shakespeare English class, but when I saw who the teacher was I immediately switched out. I still got to read Hamlet though. 🙂This one was for a college class I took a few years ago, Intro to Gender Studies. It was amazing! I highly recommend it.
I was pretty excited to get to Vishous’ book, since I wanted to see what goes on in that penthouse of his. It was also interesting to watch him deal (or not) with his feelings toward Butch and his recent mating to Marissa. He wants to be away from the happy couple, but he also can’t bare to be away from Butch, so he throws his frustrations into sex with one of his subs. We unfortunately don’t get the details, but the aftermath was a bit messy. Aside from his confusion about Butch, Vishous is approaching his 303rd birthday. He gets two huge surprises. First, he meets his mother! Second, he learns his “destiny.” He wants nothing to do with either. What he does want is Jane. She’s the surgeon […]
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. It’s so we can show what pre-published books we’re anticipating! So what title am I featuring this week…Title: ButterAuthor: Erin Jade Lange Expected Publication: September 18, 2012 A boy everyone calls “Butter” is about to make Scottsdale High history. He’s going to eat himself to death live on the Internet – and everyone will watch. He announces his deadly plan to an army of peers and expects pity, insults or even indifference. Instead, he finds morbid encouragement. When that encouragement tips the scales into popularity, Butter has a reason to live. But if he doesn’t go through with his plan, he’ll lose everything. This one definitely sounds like nothing I’ve read before or have even seen […]
