The Week's Entrée #12


Another Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Easter yesterday (if you celebrate, if not then a happy Sunday!) I was supposed to go to class today but the backstabbers of my classmates said we were skipping today, so yeah I stayed home and they DID go. Never gonna trust them again. (Sorry for the small rant, I love you.)

In other more important news...

If you saw my post yesterday, you might have noticed that I'm participating in the Clean Sweep ARC Challenge hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Angela's Anxious Life. I'm excited to get my read on with those ARC's I've been wanting to read for a while now.

Also, I finally wrote down my Book Review Policy! This is mainly for authors and publishers who might want to know my reading preferences before sending me a review request of one of their books.

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Published: April 24th, 2012/ Harlequin Teen
Genre: YA Paranormal/Fantasy
Source: iBooks

To survive in a ruined world, she must embrace the darkness…

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten. Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred of them, the vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself dies and becomes one of the monsters.

Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend, a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decide what, and who is worth dying for…again.

Enter Julie Kagawa's dark and twisted world as an unforgettable journey begins.

What Following Brings by S.E. Campbell
Published: June 11th, 2013
Genre: Fantasy

Eden Schmidt is on a boat heading to Cantica, the most fearsome Demon prison in all of the land. She is attached with her friend, Adanna, and the Demon soldier, Aaron, two of the five souls that she has to find in order to save Zemiothstai, the world of purgatory, from the clutches of Satan. Until she brings all five souls together, she cannot hope to unlock the gates of heaven.

As she travels on a boat that brings her to Cantica, she believes that things cannot be much worse. Aaron has already informed her that the evil soul, Donovan, that is Satan's right-hand man has seen to it that one of his most powerful generals, General Yuri, will guard her personally. She has also heard that the Demon prison is so tight that nobody will be able to escape. But she has to. She has made a promise to Adanna's sister, Thema, that they would meet again.


This is the second book of The Bloodsone series. I need to read this one and the third book for Cuzinlogic, although I'm not very enthusiastic about it.

Tempus by Holly Lauren
Published: November 25th 2013 /Libertine Press
Genre: YA Paranormal


Chapel Ryan isn't crazy. At least, that's what she's been trying to convince herself of for most of her life. But after being hallucination-free for three years, Chapel finds herself facedown on her English classroom’s gritty linoleum floor. When she looks up, everyone around her is suspended in animation. Mouths hang open mid-yawn, feet hover mid-cross, Ms. Freeman’s arm flexes mid-sentence diagram. It's another hallucination. Or, is it? 

Chapel prepares to tear herself back to reality when something happens. Something that has never happened before in any of her hallucinations--someone moves. And not just any someone—it’s the new guy with a scar over his lip and a reputation as black as his perfectly styled hair. And all of the sudden Chapel's white-knuckle grip on her life has slipped, and with it, her assurance that what she's experiencing isn't real.

I won this beauty through Mean Who You Are's giveaway. Thanks, Chanzie!

To Read This Week:




I'm currently reading The Uninvited by S.L. Morgan, the second book in the Ancient Guardians series. I have high hopes for this Paranormal Romance book, it has such a fascinating world and wonderful characters. The romance is super sweet too.

When I get done with this one, I'll probably read What Following Brings or The Breath of Aoles by Alan Spade.
