Thanks to Edelweiss and Soho Teen for allowing me to read an e-galley of this back in November.  I must say I really enjoyed this book!  Such a great ghost story, with a mystery to be solved.  And really, the romance between Malcolm and Liv carried over into my dreams the night I finished the […]

Since I got a review in yesterday instead of doing a WOW, and I’m not quite done with my current book due to several different reasons, I will join into this meme again, for the first time this year.  Not only that, but since I have passed the 1900 GFC follower mark for my blog, […]

This review is a long time coming.  I received an ARC of this book back at BEA in the summer of 2012.  I kept it somewhere that whenever I had just a bit of time to read, I could pick it up and read.  Which makes sense as it is a collection of short stories. […]

Of course I have to thank Tor Teen again, as well as Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this in November.  And as I mentioned on, this is one of those few times that I like the sequel better than the first book.  And I really liked the first book, you […]

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  This week I visited Half Price Books for the first time, as well as finally getting the books I was waiting on for the library, so I have some physical books to share for […]

First, thanks to Edelweiss and Egmont USA Publishing for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  Second, the reason I am calling this “sort of” a review is because I haven’t actually finished the book yet.  I’ve only made it a little over halfway through the 560 pages.  The problem is I was having […]

I FINALLY picked this one up and read it.  I’ve actually owned a copy since I purchased it last May at the RT Convention so that I could get it autographed.  Finishing this will also get me an entry in my 2014 Prequels and Sequels Challenge, although I think I have a short story/e-novella to […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  The book I’ve chosen this week I didn’t think I’d chosen yet, I hope not, so if I did, then here is a reminder about how much I’m waiting for it!  It is the […]
