Follow Friday (#8)

Follow Friday is a fun way for bloggers to find new blogger friends!  It's hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View, and it's such an awesome idea! 

This week's Feature blog is...
And the question this week is...
"Keeping With The Dystopian And Apocalypse Theme That Seems To Be Running Rampant On, I Have One Very Hard Question For You: If You Were Stocking Your Bomb Shelter, What Books Would You HAVE To Include If You Only Had Space For Ten?"
Well, before I answer, can I just say hard, hard, mean, mean question!  It's an impossible question!  I have 500-odd books, and I can only choose ten?!
Ok, I'll answer now....  Um... err.... umm...
  1. Vampire Academy: Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead: love that book!
  2. Harry Potter and... the... Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling: my favourite HP book.  Gotta love HP!
  3. If I Stay by Gayle Forman: Cried bucketloads, so it may distract me from the impending doom. ;)
  4. Hunger Games... Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins: My fave HG, and very appropriate, I feel.
  5. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte: my favourite classic, and one of my favourite books.
  6. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa: I still have to read it, and I really want to!
  7. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys: Want to read this too.
  8. Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer: ah, almost-guilty-pleasure.  Love this book.
  9. Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder: wanna read it, still haven't.
  10. And finally... My Kindle!  I have 200-something books, so even I would have a little trouble getting through them all.  Sure, it's probably cheating... but I'd go mad without it!
Well, there you have it: my apocalyptic bookshelf.  What would be on your survival-book-list?

If you've found me through FF, leave me a link so I can follow you back!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!

Waiting On Wednesday (#12)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, and it's a weekly meme all about the books that are coming out soon that we really can't wait to read.

So, back to my random choices, all out 5th May.  Some are reprints, or books that have just come out in paperback, but they all look ah-maz-ing!
So, bringing on the randomnes...
Strings Attached
By: Judy Blundell
Published: 5th May 2011
Published By: Scholastic
Found: On Amazon

Synopsis From Goodreads:
From National Book Award winner Judy Blundell, the tale of a sixteen-year-old girl caught in a mix of love, mystery, Broadway glamour, and Mob retribution in 1950 New York.
When Kit Corrigan arrives in New York City, she doesn't have much. She's fled from her family in Providence, Rhode Island, and she's broken off her tempestuous relationship with a boy named Billy, who's enlisted in the army.
The city doesn't exactly welcome her with open arms. She gets a bit part as a chorus girl in a Broadway show, but she knows that's not going to last very long. She needs help--and then it comes, from an unexpected source.
Nate Benedict is Billy's father. He's also a lawyer involved in the mob. He makes Kit a deal--he'll give her an apartment and introduce her to a new crowd. All she has to do is keep him informed about Billy . . . and maybe do him a favor every now and then.
As she did in her National Book Award-winning What I Saw and How I Lied, Judy Blundell traps readers in a web of love, deceit, intrigue, and murder. The result? One stunner of a novel.
Looks like an awesome piece of YA Historical fiction.  And I love me some historical fiction. ;)

The Hunting Ground
By: Cliff McNish
Published: 5th May 2011
Published By: Orion Childrens
Found: On Amazon

Synopsis From Goodreads:
When Elliott and his brother, Ben, move into the old and crumbling Glebe House, they don't expect to find themselves sharing it with ghosts.
But soon sinister events are unfolding... An old diary reveals glimpses of the mansion's past, of a terrible tragedy, and of a great evil that lurks in the East Wing.
Can Elliott and his family escape the clutches of Glebe House? Or will they be trapped in the maze of corridors, forever hunted by the dead?
Eep, ghosts, diaries, evil?!  Awesome!  :)

Shadow Wave (Cherub, #12)
Shadow Wave
Series: Cherub, Book Twelve
By: Robert Muchamore
Published: 5th May 2011
Published By: Hodder Children's Books
Found: On Amazon

Synopsis From Goodreads:
After a tsunami causes massive devastation to a tropical island, its governor sends in the bulldozers to knock down villages, replacing them with luxury hotels.
Guarding the corrupt governor's family isn't James Adams' idea of the perfect mission, especially as it's going to be his last as a CHERUB agent. And then retired colleague Kyle Blueman comes up with an unofficial and highly dangerous plan of his own.
James must choose between loyalty to CHERUB, and loyalty to his oldest friend.
Now, theses are a little bit of a guilty-pleasure.  I love the Cherub series; they're so action-packed!  I'm behind on the series at the moment, but I'm looking forwards to seeing how James' last mission ever goes.  Plus, there's that whole: "Is This The End For Cherub?" which is quite eep-worthy.

Found: On Amazon

Synopsis From Amazon:
"That's where I should have started the story. I sat for ages in the dark, with my head in a swirl. My thoughts were spinning round and round, like clothes in a washing machine. Bruising, I thought. Alcoholic. Social worker. Foster care. Scum. School. Measles. Cow. Mobile phone. Danielle. That was the beginning. But I'd forgotten that until now. I mean, but it's amazing what you can forget ..."
It all started when Gramma died. And then Jonathan and Julie had only apples for dinner. Apples, an alcoholic mother, and one big bruise on Julie's face. Jonathan had no choice but to pack their schoolbags and run away, far from Ma ... 
Until the police catch up with them and take Julie away and lock up Jono. And through his questioning, Jonathan must finally confront the real truth.
A powerful tale of one boy's mission to protect his younger sister ... no matter what the cost.
Wow, ok, amazing.  I want it!

By: Amy Plum
Published: 5th MA
Published By: ATOM
Found: Everywhere!

Synopsis From Goodreads:
My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.
Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.
Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.
Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.
While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love?
I've heard soo many great things about this, and I so want to read it!  Looks so amazing!

Well, that's my WoW!  All amazing-looking, all out 5th May.  Can't wait!

Teaser Tuesday (#10)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here are the rules:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers!
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser!
Once again, cheating a little... Three books, three teasers.  And three said books are... Predators of Darkness: Aftermath (The Darkness, Book One) by Leonard D. Hilley II,  City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, Book One) by Cassandra Clare and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, Book Seven) by J. K. Rowling.
The first is my For Review, the second is one of my own books that is still mainly on 'Hold' and the last is a book I'm rereading after watching the movie, that I read when I'm too tired or too busy, etc to really concentrate on the others.  And so, I introduce my teasers!


From Predators of Darkness: Aftermath by Leonard D. Hilley, Chapter One, Page Four
It was a game of hunter versus prey.  He wasn't sure which he considered himself.
Predators of Darkness: Aftermath (The Darkness, Book One) by Leonard D. Hilley II
Synopsis From Goodreads:
Fear What Lurks In The Shadows
The desolate streets of downtown Pittsburgh in 2073 are a reminder of the missile attack that forever changed the lives of the surviving scientists and students hidden in the fallout shelter of Helmsby’s Genetic Research Center. Believing themselves to be the only survivors, they station themselves inside the center until food supplies near depletion. Thinking the fallout has lessened, they emerge three years later to discover strange creatures patrolling the streets in search of human flesh and blood. The creatures possess the ability to shift their genomes and alter their appearances by realigning their genetic sequences. Daniel Hutchinson, their leader, teams with Lucas Ridale and together they set out to scavenge the area for food and supplies with the hope to find other survivors. But Daniel’s most recent journey uncovers mysteries more frightening than the shifters. He discovers the tip of Pittsburgh has been fenced off from the rest of the area. Low-flying helicopters observe the streets, making him ponder the question: Were the shifters released as simply part of a military experiment with humans being their prey?
From City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, From Chapter Unsure: Couldn't Find My Book So I Got It Off Of Goodreads
 "Have you fallen in love with the wrong person yet?'
Jace said, "Unfortunately, Lady of the Haven, my one true love remains myself."
..."At least," she said, "you don't have to worry about rejection, Jace Wayland."
"Not necessarily. I turn myself down occasionally, just to keep it interesting."

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, Book One) by Cassandra Clare
Synopsis From Blurb:
Clary Fray is seeing things: vampires in Brooklyn and werewolves in Manhattan.  Irresistibly drawn towards a group of sexy demon hunters, Clary encounters the dark side of New York City - and the dangers of forbidden love.
Gotta love that Jace Wayland humour.  And, of course, gotta love Jace Wayland.  Full stop.
Oh, and the book's brilliant too. ;)
From Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling, From Chapter Five, Page 67
"Saint-like?" repeated George, opening his eyes and looking up at his brother.  "You see... I'm holy.  Holey, Fred, geddit?"

Of course, I've already read this one, but after watching Part One of the film, I wanted to refresh my memory.  I do love Harry Potter...  Best magic series ever!

So, there are my teasers.  Random: yes.  Awesome: yes, I think so.

Published By: Harper Teen
Found: On Amazon
Synopsis From Goodreads:
Ghosts ruin everything, especially your love life.
Suze is a mediator—a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business on earth. But after a cross-country move to sunny California, Suze is looking forward to a fresh start and a life free of spectral interventions.
Too bad Suze can't escape the undead that easily. She might not mind Jesse, the sexy ghost who haunts her bedroom, but there are plenty of other poltergeists out there with less friendly intentions. Some of them are out for revenge . . . of the murderous kind. And Suze might be the only one who can stop them.

Published: 3rd Febuary 2011
Published By: Quercus Publishing
Found: On Megan (Read It, See It)'s Blog

Synopsis From Goodreads:
I still hadn't fully absorbed the terrible possibility that I might actually be a werewolf. A werewolf. I kept stumbling over that word; it made no sense to me. How could I be a werewolf? Werewolves didn't exist.
When Tobias Richard Vandevelde wakes up in hospital with no memory of the night before, his horrified mother tells him that he was found by the police. At Featherdale Park.
In a dingo pen.
As if that isn't weird enough, suddenly a very menacing looking guy and a priest show up at his door.
As the mystery unfolds, Toby finds himself keeping company with some very strange and sickly looking people - members of a suburban vampire support group. And when he's abducted in broad daylight, he will need all their help to break free ... and to come to terms with his own incredibly rare condition.
I read The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jinks (See On Goodreads) a year ago and loved it, and I loved the characters.  So, when I saw that Jinks had bought out a sequel-of-sorts, I grinned!  Plus, this does look very good.  :)

Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war — and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction.

Across Eternity by Aris Whittier

Publisher: Unknown
Format: eBook
Published: Unknown
Number of Pages: 298
Book: For Review From Author*
Genre: Romance, Contemporary Romance, Fantasy, YA-Adult Crossover
Recommended Age: 15+: Teens Who Want To Move On From YA Romance
Contains: A Few Swearwords and Love Scenes, But No Graphic Sexual Descriptions

Born a genius; education, wealth, and prestige came easy to Logan Richards. Actually, there wasn’t much that Logan couldn’t learn or acquire. However, he knew there was more to life than money and power. Logan was determined to find the woman who he'd dreamed of his entire life and know what it was like to love her before he died.
Amber Lewis, a waitress for a five-star restaurant in, Dana Point, California, was overworked, stressed, and wary of life since her sister, Heather, had passed away. Then, one evening while working she fell hopelessly in love with Logan Richards, a chivalrous man who felt deeply familiar.
For Amber, it was the beginning of a voyage of self-discovery and renewal. For Logan, it was the completion of life. For each of them it was the deepest sort of love.

Aris Whittier got in touch with me, asking if I would like to review her book.  The blurb appealed to me, and it was my first for-review book, so of course I said yes!  And I can honestly say I loved it.  It was amazing, and I’m so glad I said yes now!
One love for all your lives.  The concept is so beautiful, so intriguing and is what made this book incredible and unique.  Once I’d started, I just couldn’t stop reading.  It was another of those so-beautiful-it-actually-hurts books, and I loved every minute of it.
Logan first met her when he was three, before she was born – well, born in this time, at least.  No one else could see her, because she was his, and he was hers and it had always been that way.  It all changed when he was ten, because she had to be born.  Her leaving was the most painful thing Logan had been through, and all that kept him going was the knowledge that she was out there somewhere, and that one day he would find her.  And he did, twenty-seven years later, and the connection was there for them both.  For Logan it wasn’t the first time: they were made for each other, and their love survived across all eternity...
Soulmates and past lives are something that’s always intrigued me, and Aris really bought the two to life, making me believe that it was possible for love to be so strong it would last forever.  Normally, instant-connection-love is a little hit-and-miss, but in this case it was absolutely perfect: sweet, believable and I could completely feel the connection.
Logan was sincere, confident, beautiful and a genius: the man a girl can instantly fall for.  To begin with I thought he was a little formal, but after a while I realised that’s just how he was: too smart for his own good!  I loved how self-conscious and... humble, is the word I’d use to describe him: he didn’t like to show off how smart he really was.  That’s what made me really love him.  Well, that and how he was with Amber.  Amber was kind, sweet, with a good sense of humour.  I loved how she purposefully made Logan uncomfortable with silly things, because the way he reacted made me laugh.  Their love was what carried the book, what made it magical, unforgettable, stunning. 
The supporting characters were just as loveable, Logan’s family in particular.  They really made me laugh, and the dynamics were just so amazing that I literally could have read a whole book just about them.  His mother was by far the best, with her over-the-top reactions and her wonderful insanity.  She was a classic mother hen, and I loved her!
Aris asked me to review Across Eternity from a YA-fiction-reader angle, to see if it’s something teens would like.  I think it’s perfect.  When you’re at that stage when you feel you are looking for something a little more that what teen and YA romance books have to offer, but are too young for adult romances, I think that you are at the perfect stage for this book.  Even if you aren’t there, and just want an amazing romance with a twist, I recommend it.  It contains a few love scenes, but nothing graphic... come to think of it, I’ve seen more graphics in YA novels...  But more than that, it has a beauty about it, about how to accept death, destiny and things that are beyond your control.  So, yes, Aris, I think you can definitely call this an Adult-YA crossover.
I laughed, I smiled and I cried my eyes out.  I questioned so many things: do I believe in past lives?; do I believe is soulmates?; do I believe in love so powerful it never goes away?  And after reading Across Eternity, I feel like I do, because how can something so beautiful not exist?
