    13 LITTLE BLUE ENVELOPES
    By: Maureen Johnson
    Publication Date:  December 21, 2010

    I'm really excited to read this one ... someday soon!  The summary makes me think that this is exactly perfect for me.  "Disastrous ... but utterly romantic." Have you read it? Let me know what you thought in the comments! 


    Inside little blue envelope 1 are $1,000 and instructions to buy a plane ticket.

    In envelope 2 are directions to a specific London flat.


    The note in envelope 3 tells Ginny: Find a starving artist.


    Because of envelope 4, Ginny and a playwright/thief/ bloke–about–town called Keith go to Scotland together, with somewhat disastrous–though utterly romantic–results. But will she ever see him again?


    Everything about Ginny will change this summer, and it's all because of the 13 little blue envelopes.

    CLOCKWORK ANGEL(THE INFERNAL DEVICES, #1)
    By: Cassandra Clare
    Publication Date: August 31, 2010

    I know there are a number of people who have mixed feelings about this series but I have to admit I really enjoyed this one...more than the Mortal Instruments series (don't hate me).  I liked these characters more and the fact that it is Historical with a side of Steampunk/Fantasy, it was a series I couldn't wait to get through.

    Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1)

    In a time when Shadowhunters are barely winning the fight against the forces of darkness, one battle will change the course of history forever. Welcome to the Infernal Devices trilogy, a stunning and dangerous prequel to the New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.


    The year is 1878. Tessa Gray descends into London’s dark supernatural underworld in search of her missing brother. She soon discovers that her only allies are the demon-slaying Shadowhunters—including Will and Jem, the mysterious boys she is attracted to. Soon they find themselves up against the Pandemonium Club, a secret organization of vampires, demons, warlocks, and humans. Equipped with a magical army of unstoppable clockwork creatures, the Club is out to rule the British Empire, and only Tessa and her allies can stop them....

  2. Welcome to very special episode of Swoony Boys Podcast. We’re back with our blogging BFF's from Swoony Boys Podcast for the third episode in our author series where we invite our favorite authors on the podcast to talk about their books, their boys, and really, all things bookish! This time we’re lucky enough to have the lovely Brighton Walsh joining us to talk about all the things she is working on...and of course, Cade.

    But first, a little about her book! 

    In this emotional and sexy New Adult debut from Brighton Walsh, the only thing more frightening than commitment is hope…...
     
    Aspiring chef Cade Maxwell is immediately, viscerally attracted to Winter Jacobson. But it’s not her mouthwatering curves he’s drawn to—it’s the strange emptiness in her eyes. When Cade saves her from a drunken customer with grabby hands, he’s shocked at her response…...
     
    Winter doesn’t need Cade’s help. After a lifetime of getting by on her own, she’s happy to rely on herself. She’s exactly seventy-six days away from graduating college, and if she can hold it together that long, she’ll finally be able to rise above the crappy hand she was dealt.
     
    But now, every time she turns around, Cade is there, ready to push her, smile at her, distract her from her plans. Winter knows she can’t afford to open up—especially to a man she’s terrified to actually want….


    ABOUT BRIGHTON
    Brighton Walsh spent nearly a decade as a professional photographer before deciding to take her storytelling in a different direction and reconnect with her first love: writing. When she’s not pounding away at the keyboard, she’s probably either reading or shopping—maybe even both at once. She lives in the Midwest with her husband and two children, and, yes, she considers forty degrees to be hoodie weather. Her home is the setting for frequent dance parties, Lego battles, and more laughter than she thought possible. Visit her online at brightonwalsh.com.
     AND NOW..... 
    While you're here, donut forget to subscribe to their podcast in iTunes.

  3. Hey Everyone!! Just catching up on a few reviews that I may have missed recently!! Wanted to share some thoughts about them since I really enjoyed all of these!! 

    Sam McKenna’s never turned down a dare. And she's not going to start with the last one her brother gave her before he died.

    So Sam joins the first-ever class of girls at the prestigious Denmark Military Academy. She’s expecting push-ups and long runs, rope climbing and mud-crawling. As a military brat, she can handle an obstacle course just as well as the boys. She's even expecting the hostility she gets from some of the cadets who don’t think girls belong there. What she’s not expecting is her fiery attraction to her drill sergeant. But dating is strictly forbidden and Sam won't risk her future, or the dare, on something so petty...no matter how much she wants him.

    As Sam struggles to prove herself, she discovers that some of the boys don’t just want her gone—they will stop at nothing to drive her out. When their petty threats turn to brutal hazing, bleeding into every corner of her life, she realizes they are not acting alone. A decades-old secret society is alive and active… and determined to force her out. At any cost.

    Now time's running short. Sam must decide who she can trust...and choosing the wrong person could have deadly consequences.

    Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    4.5 stars

    You guys!! This book was amazing and I fail at putting my full review together to tell you why, mostly because it was just that good! I feel like I’ll miss something!

    I think what was most intriguing for me with this book was the setting. Sure, we get boarding schools and dystopian books that are frequently set at times in a military type setting, but this one is straight up a military academy. And Sam is among the first group of girls to petition in order to attend. With that comes the requisite group of men/boys who feel that women don’t belong in their setting. But Sam is determined to prove them wrong.

    I really loved Sam as a character here and I think Hensley did an amazing job with her. She is strong, and determined and loyal to her friends and family, even when it sometimes wasn’t necessarily warranted.

    Those of you looking for a romance… there’s a bit of one here that I felt was really well done and just enough to provide a few swoons but definitely nothing that overtakes the actual plot of the story.

    In a world of pretty dresses and dystopian books, Rites of Passage was a breath of fresh air and something completely different that I hope you’ll enjoy just as much as I did.


    Falling Into Place On the day Liz Emerson tries to die, they had reviewed Newton’s laws of motion in physics class. Then, after school, she put them into practice by running her Mercedes off the road.


    Why? Why did Liz Emerson decide that the world would be better off without her? Why did she give up? Vividly told by an unexpected and surprising narrator, this heartbreaking and nonlinear novel pieces together the short and devastating life of Meridian High’s most popular junior girl. Mass, acceleration, momentum, force—Liz didn’t understand it in physics, and even as her Mercedes hurtles toward the tree, she doesn’t understand it now. How do we impact one another? How do our actions reverberate? What does it mean to be a friend? To love someone? To be a daughter? Or a mother? Is life truly more than cause and effect? Amy Zhang’s haunting and universal story will appeal to fans of Lauren Oliver, Gayle Forman, and Jay Asher.
    Jaime's Thoughts
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Sometimes it was difficult to love Liz Emerson. But it was very easy to love her.

    This was is a hard book to fall in love with if I’m being completely honest with you… typically I have to connect with the main characters and want to cheer for them, and in Falling Into Place, our characters, especially Liz Emerson, despite that quote above, is definitely a hard character to love. She’s the antithesis of everything I find myself looking for in a main character, and yet, by the end of the book I couldn’t help but want good things for her.

    "She was never careful with her life or anyone else's..."

    The story telling in this story was really beautifully done – Zhang took a chance here by creating these people and telling the story the way she did, but it completely grabbed me and pulled me in. I found that I couldn’t put this book down and when I turned that last page, I wanted to go back and read bits and pieces of this story again.

    I think for the most part you’re either going to love this story or not, and it’s a bit reminiscent of If I Stay in some ways but definitely a beautiful and poignant story.

    If you haven’t picked this one up yet, definitely give it a try and let me know what you think!


    At 21, Calla hasn’t done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.

    But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought she'd left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.

    Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn’t give them her mom.
    Jaime's Thoughts
    Stay with Me by J. Lynn
    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    As usual, Jennifer Armentrout totally won me over with both her characters in this story., Calla, who hasn’t done much of anything in her life, and Jackson, the guy who seems to have a wealth of experience in his past.

    If there is one thing I can count on from Jennifer it’s that she will always provide a captivating story with guys who will make you drool. And that is exactly what you will find in Stay With Me.

    Jax, a former marine, is now running the bar that Calla assumes her mom will eventually leave to her… and it’s actually no longer in the red. I have to admit something to you all right now too... I think that Jax might actually be my favorite of Jennifer’s guys. He’s sweet, he’s sexy and he’s a little bit naughty. All things I can appreciate!

    Calla herself is an intriguing character as well, keeping her past a secret from those she’s become ‘friends’ with, really adds that little bit of a twist to those who think they actually know her. Then you add in the mystery surrounding the disappearance of her money… her mom’s disappearance, the bar, the strange people looking for her and we’ve got quite a story here.

    If you haven’t started this series yet, I highly recommend it… you won’t be disappointed in a single one of the stories here and you definitely won’t be disappointed in the “hot guy brigade.”

  4. Hey Everyone - We are cleaning things up in the blog and found some reviews that we wanted to get out to you!  Check them out!!



    Erin Reviews Controlling The Dead

    Controlling the Dead (The Famished Trilogy, #2)Controlling the Dead by Annie Walls
    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    Controlling the Dead is book two in The Famished Trilogy by Annie Walls and if you haven’t yet checked out this series and enjoy a good horror/zombie book, you should go get this and book one now. Annie takes us back into Kansas’ world where zombies are all over and just living day to day is sometimes tough to do.

    If you read book one, you know Kan went through some pretty tough things and they definitely have an impact on her when she gets back to her group. She is doing her best to hide and those closest to her know that despite her strength, things have been tough and they are trying to get her to slow down and take care of herself. She is still tough and a badass but she is also now dealing with the emotional and physical trauma of what happened and I love that this could have changed her completely but it didn’t.

    As Kan gets back to the camp, she is back with her friends – Rudy, Mac, Glenda, and Reese. Quite a bit happens in this book and I’m not going to really say anything as I don’t want to give it away but progress is made and things happen that change the dynamics of the group as well as who they can trust. I was glad to see that the relationship between Rudy and Kan shifted and they finally realized what was important to them. I also like the relationship between Glenda and Kan. Glenda is definitely the mother figure for her and she is someone Kan needs in her life.

    I am interested in seeing where Walls goes not only with Kan’s new ability but also with the way the group reacts and responds to the next challenge they are facing. I am hoping we also get to see more of Kan’s ability…perhaps in response to how book two ended.

    If you like a good zombie story that has strong characters as well as a solid plot, you will enjoy this series. Walls did a great job in creating a story that kept me invested in what happened as well as wondering where things were going to go. There were some parts of the story that dragged a bit for me but overall I thought this was a solid book two in the series. I look forward to book three and seeing what happens to everyone as well as how the world ends up. Definitely check this one out and if you haven’t read book one yet, get on it.


    Erin Reviews You

    YouYou by Caroline Kepnes
    My rating: 3 of 5 stars

    So that was creepy and weird.

    I'm really not sure what to say about this book. I can say that if the goal was to create a very creepy story with some really unlikable characters, consider that goal met. I do have to admit that despite the creep factor, I found myself unable to put this book down.

    Kepnes immediately pulled me into this story. There is Joe, who is VERY disturbing, and Beck who is self-destructive and clueless, As the main characters, they were very well developed and while I felt sorry for Beck in the end, I didn't like her at all. Also, the secondary characters weren't likable either. All of Beck's friends were annoying and selfish and of course, Joe didn't really have any friends.

    While I can't say this was an enjoyable story based on the subject matter, I can say it was definitely an interesting one. I found it disturbing and creepy but I also needed to find out what was going to happen in the end. I have no idea who I would recommend this book to but if you find any of the above interesting, you might actually want to check this one out.

    Thank you to Netgalley and Atria Books for the review copy.


    Erin Reviews Perfection

    Perfection (Perfection, #1)Perfection by J.L. Spelbring
    My rating: 3 of 5 stars

    This book started out slow for me but as the story developed and progressed, I found myself enjoying it more.

    I enjoy the dystopian genre and the premise for this story was intriguing. Where I feel like it may have missed the mark was in providing background around what happened to make the doctor think the way he did and how the world ended up the way it did. Perhaps I missed it but I couldn't understand what might have happened that would have made society lean toward Hitler's ideals.

    I thought the characters were interesting. Ellyssa was well developed and I wanted to know more about why she had a "flaw". I liked the introduction of the rebels and thought they added a necessary layer to the story but I found the insta-love a bit odd. For a character that has no sense of real emotions for the majority of her life, I didn't buy that after a week, she would be able to come to the conclusion that what she is feeling, especially after being so cut off from emotion for so long.

    Overall I enjoyed this book and will definitely check out the next installment. I have a feeling that things will be getting very interesting for everyone.

    Thank you to Netgalley and Spencer Hill Press for the review copy.


    Erin Reviews Gravity

    Gravity (The Taking, #1)Gravity by Melissa West
    My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

    The story was interesting and kept me turning the pages. The Earth has been transformed after WWIV destroyed it. At the time, the leaders developed a treaty with an alien civilization called Loge. The agreement was that The Ancients would fix the Earth and when it could support it, The Ancients would live on Earth with the humans. In the meantime, every night at midnight every human,ten years and older, participates in The Taking which involves The Ancients siphoning antibodies into themselves to help them acclimate to the Earth's atmosphere.

    I really liked the characters in this story. Ari is the main character and her closest friends are Gretchen and Law. There is an interesting dynamic here because they grew up together and recently due to who Ari's parents are and who Law's parents are, an agreement was made to create a union between their families to strengthen the view of the system. Ari's dad is the commander which makes her next in line for that role and Law's mother is the President. (view spoiler) Ari is smart and tough. Because of who her dad is and her future role, she has had to push herself and she is determined to prove herself but also do some good for the world.

    Enter Jackson - he has a lot of secrets and I won't give any away here. We find out early on that he is Ari's Ancient and he has a lot resting on his shoulders. I don't want to give anything away here so I'm not going to say a lot. I loved him - he is caring and protective and only wants to do what is right.

    Yes, there is a relationship developing here between Ari and Jackson but it doesn't override the rest of the story...which is important. There is a lot of action and it is a very fast paced book. I will say that if you aren't a fan of cliffhangers you will want to wait for the next book to come out before reading this. I will definitely be reading the next book of the series when it comes out and am going to go file this onto my "really want to read" shelf immediately.

When the town's inhabitants suddenly appear the next morning, Dee, Luke, and Mike find themselves at the mercy of the charismatic leader, Elijah Hawkins, who plans to make Dee his new wife. Elijah's son, Joseph, offers to help them escape . . . but the price of his help may be more than Dee and her friends can bear.
