When Claire is ordered to repair the systems that protect Morganville, it's not just cutting into her study time, it's a life-threatening problem. If there's one thing this vampire-infested town is serious about, it's security. But achieving the impossible only brings a whole new set of problems, and the upgrades have unexpected consequences: people inside the town are slowly beginning to forget who they are, even the vampires. Soon, the town's little memory problem has turned into a full-on epidemic. Now Claire needs to figure out a way to pull the plug on her experiment - before she forgets how to save Morganville...


My Thoughts
OMG! All I can say was that this book is a BIG HIT! I swear down, it is a awesome book I loved it! Its full of action, romance, suspense- everything.

I loved the starting of the book. Especially because Claire thought a guy was hot other than Shane and Micheal. It just seemed so much nicer. But I stick with the fact that Shane and Claire are made for each other.

Claire killed a Vampire in self defence as like always there was a brawl. Humans get killed all the time and they don't make a big deal out of it. But,Amelia is so mean! I cannot believe she kept Claire awake for such a long time as punishment to put up the town barriers back up again. Blah Blah Blah. At least she wasn't in that other guys place boy has he done trouble. Everyone is losing their memories (even vampires) because the machine is malfunctioning. Micheal acted as if he didn't know anyone even Eve and Shane.

OMG! Shane was the worst. He completely didn't know Claire at all! Like she was a nobody. It was so sad. He thought that they just hooked up. But it was nice seeing Claire's and Shane's romance build up again from the very beginning. LOL! Even Micheal and Eve... they were so cute.

What I really hated was the agony Shane felt realising his mum and sister died also how they died and that his Dad was turned into a Vampire.

I was dieing! I just have to say it Frank Collins dies! I know you might think hes a baddy but when your read this book you see another caring person who sacrificed himself for the town. Shane was heart broken. There was this one line which he said which really hit me.
"it's too late for me to really love him now. That's what hurts."

OMG I CRIED! real actual tears. This was so sad for Shane. I mean seriously, those words just touched my heart. I love Shane. He's suffering so much. ):

Rachel Caine's cliffhanger are simply the best you know why? Myrin knows how to restore the Town's boundaries (they got destroyed in the fight)he tells Claire. Myrin always wanted to put a brain as the brain will always do the job. Care to guess who's brain he used? Too big a secret to give away.
Like I said. This a definite MUST READ!

Plus juggling three guys is no stress reliever, especially when one is a sexy Warrior so into protecting Zoey that he's sensing her emotions. Wider stresses lurk too, and the dark force in Tulsa's tunnels is spreading. Could Stevie Rae be responsible for more than a group of misfit fledglings? And Aphrodite's visions warn Zoey to stay away from the immortal Kalona and his dark allure - but they also show that only Zoey can stop him. She's not exactly keen to meet up, but if Zoey doesn't go to Kalona he'll exact a fiery vengeance on those closest to her. She just has to find the courage to do what's necessary, or everything that's important to her will be destroyed.

Final 'Hush Hush' Trilogy Release Date Out!


NEW YORK, October 19, 2010 – Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers announced today that it will be publishing Tempest, the third and final book in Becca Fitzpatrick’s New York Times bestselling Hush, Hush trilogy. Tempest will have an on-sale date of Tuesday, October 18, 2011, with a first printing of 250,000 copies, and it will be supported by a major marketing campaign and national author tour.

The Hush, Hush series has captivated readers with the story of Nora Grey, her friend Vee, and a mysterious fallen archangel named Patch. In the gripping conclusion of the trilogy, Nora finds that as things start to unravel around her, she is more drawn to the enigmatic Patch. She soon discovers that the answers lie closer to home than she realized, and it is time for her to take control of her destiny once and for all.

Becca Fitzpatrick says, “Hush, Hush was my very first book, and it’s so thrilling to see it embraced by so many readers. It’s been a truly life changing experience. Patch and Nora’s story isn’t half told until Tempest, and I hope readers will find it the most enticing book yet.”

Executive editor Emily Meehan adds, “Becca Fitzpatrick is an amazing storyteller, so my excitement to bring readers the third and final Hush, Hush book goes almost beyond words. Almost! Becca’s characters are swoony, her plots are twisted, and she likes to weave in a good mystery while she’s at it. Tempest will be no exception.”

Becca Fitzpatrick grew up reading Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden with a flashlight under the covers. She graduated college with a degree in health, which she promptly abandoned for storytelling. When not writing, she's most likely prowling sale racks for reject shoes, running, or watching crime dramas on TV. Hush, Hushwas her first novel. She lives in Colorado.

The Hush Hush series are not a triology anymore. Tempest has been renamed to Silence. The title to Book 4 has been named as Finale!

Misguided Angel by Melissa de la Cruz


Misguided Angel
by Melissa De la Cruz

Pages: 256
Release Date: October 26th
Publisher: ATOM
Buy it: Amazon

After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence--with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the seven gates that guard earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silverbloods.
As the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler closer to a terrifying crossroads--and a choice that will determine the destiny of all vampires.

My Thoughts
I fell in love with this series. It is outstanding! I just love Jack but sometimes I don't but whatever his character is a heartthrob. Go Schuyler and Jack! I adore their meetings that I re-read them a lot. Melissa sure knows how to get you teeth stuck into it ;)

It was such a beautiful read but also sad. There was lots of things going on so it was interesting. I was shocked to see that new characters came in but the old characters were enjoyable too. Oh yeah, there's also a PIRATE. It's so random in a book like this.
I don't like to mention spoilers but I just have to spill this out... Jack proposed to Schuyler and i was like OMG!
The book was split into parts with differnt points of view. Schuyler, Mimi then finally Demings. I really connect with Schuyler's character so I enjoyed reading her part the most escpecially the parts with her and Jack! Mimi is exciting to read about with her friendship with Oliver. Also, she simply trys to push all her feelings for Kingsley out of her mind but shes not successful as then she's back to her revenge for Jack. The only bad thing about the book is Demings. I mean she okay and all but it's like she's taking the place of Bliss.
I hate waiting. Need to read the next book!

Nightshade by Andrea R. Cremer

by Andrea Cremer

Pages: 304 pages
Release Date: January 6th 2011
Publisher: ATOM
Buy the Book: Amazon

Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she’ll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters’ laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

My Thoughts
The main reason i picked up this book because the cover is very alluring. Very mystical. Fortunately, the book was as good as the cover. I totally LOVED it! Andrea Cremer lured me into her world of danger, romance and suspense.

Very page turning. I actually stayed up all night to read it and to find out what happens next. As you can see, I really got into it and the storyline is ah- mazing... werewolf packs that DO NOT stick to the rules.

It is full of action and adventure from the very first page. Calla is the type of heroine I love to read on. She is fierce and really cares about the her loved ones. I love romance novel and boy this love triangle is one to talk about however at times is can be a bit OTT. No doubt, Both of the guys, Ren and Shay are absolute hotties! Its extremely hard to chose which one I like the best as they're both my favourite.

Full of adventure and intrigue, "Nightshade" will have you eager to read more! There are always times when your reading you find something funny and just suddenly laugh outta the blue. That what happens when i read this book. There's humour and it real gave the book more of a sparkle to it. I found myself fully dedicated into the characters. Each character is one of a kind. I cannot wait to see what happens later on! I don't really enjoy cliff hangers but the it's worth the wait!

I recommend this book to all YA and Paranormal fans! I cannot wait for the release of Wolfsbane, the next addition to the Nightshade series :)

Zelah Green: One More Little Problem by Vanessa Curtis


One More Little Problem
by Vanessa Curtis

Warm, winning and real, Zelah Green is back! My name is Zelah Green and I'm a Cleanaholic. It's the summer hols and I'm on major Flirt Alert. I've joined and ever since I've been getting emails from loads of boys. Boys are Dirt Alert AND Germ Alert. Don't even talk to me about kissing... The rest of my life's a bit rubbish too. That's because: my dad is moping about the house missing his girlfriend; my ex-best friend still isn't speaking to me; my grumpy weirdo Satanist friend has turned up to stay; my cleaning rituals are are taking up way too much time; and, most importantly, the guy I really like, Sol, has disappeared off the face of the earth...
My Thoughts
Oh Zelah Green. This was such a fun to read and no doubt an enjoyable too. It was different from the books I usually read- Paranormal romance novels. It's nice to be out of your comfort zone and simply go back to the REAL world for once and this book showed it wonderfully.

Zelah Green has OCD. Because of her problems in her life her condition does get a tad worse. I love her character. She is kinda weird but in a very good way.

Zelah's 'ex best friend' seems to be a great mate. Even though they fell out, she helped and supported Zelah when she was in need and that's what friends are for, right?

The one thing I didn't like about the book is that there wasn't that element of suspense. So yes, it was very easy to guess what will happen follow. Like, Zelah kept thinking about Sol and then she was chatting to this guy called Alexandro... You can pick up the pieces rather quickly and put them together.

This isn't the type of book I would read over and over again.
However, it was a good read. (:

The Life and Death of Charlie St Cloud by Ben Sherwood


Charlie St. Cloud is a young man overcome by grief at the death of his younger brother. So much so that he takes a job as caretaker of the cemetery in which his brother is buried. Charlie has a special lasting bond with his brother though, as he can see him. Charlie meets up with his brother (Sam) each night to play catch and talk. Then, a girl comes into Charlie's life and he must choose between keeping a promise he made to Sam, or going after the girl he loves This book has also recently been published into a film staring Zac efron as the main character Charlie.

My Thoughts
This book was recommended to me by a friend. At first, i didn't want to read it as the first couple of pages were not that appealing to me. However, I started reading it after finding out it was published into a movie starring Zac Efron.  I am happy I did so as it is a very interesting read.

It was very touching to see Charlie wanting to keep his brother's promise of staying with him even though he died by taking a job as a caretaker of a cemetery. He cares for others and Charlie's has a very wonderful character.

As soon as Charlie meets Tess they feel a very intense connection. Their love is very unusal and deep. Meeting Tess, comes with the decision to abandon his promise.

Ben Sherwood's writing is moving and the story is told with a magical simplicity. It's a story in which miracles are suddenly possible.
A very enjoayable read.

Torment by Lauren Kate


by Lauren Kate

Pages: 452

Release Date: September 28th 2010
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Other Books in Series: Fallen, Passion and Rapture
Buy the Book: Amazon

In "Torment", fallen angel Daniel and his mortal love Lucinda think they are safe but evil forces are massing against them. As Luce learns more about her past, and discovers that the lives she's already lived hold the key to her future happiness; she starts to wonder if Daniel has told her the whole truth.
What if his version of events isn't the way things happened?
What if that means that she's really meant to be with someone else?

My Thoughts
After reading Fallen, I just knew I had to read the book that followed. Torment was everything I expected it to be. It was as good as the first- packed with twice as much the suspense, action and love.

Luce faces many challenges. She has to make difficult decisions that have been already made by Daniel. But does she follow them? Nope.  I liked her venerability and how she didn't know what to do most of the time.

Fortunately, Daniel appeared in this book quite often. I really love his character. I treasured the moments with Luce and Daniel however, as time passed by, she grew fond of another :(

The most shocking event was the ending. It always the last few moments of the book that surprises me. I can't believe what happened to Luce. It's impossible to figure how the story is going to carry on. 

I absoluetly love Lauren Kate's books! I love her writing and the way she expresses it. Fallen was a big hit for me and now I feel the same way with Torment. What can I say. AMAZING!

PASSION is to be released June 14th 2011!
