Publication date: May 27th, 2013
Genre: New Adult Romance

Synopsis:
***“If you’re broken, I’ll fix you…”
I’m only twenty-one and already damaged goods. A slut. A failure. A disappointment to my picture-perfect family as long as I can remember. I called off my wedding to William Bailey, the only man who thought I was worth fixing. A year later, he’s marrying my sister. Unless I ask him not to…

-Review- Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

Image
Goodreads Shortie:
After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: terrifying powers that let her channel electricity and learn a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude...until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire...
Whenever I read something by Jeaniene Frost I KNOW I'm in for a sexy-thrilling AND completely dangerous ride. No matter the character, no matter the setting, nothing... Nothing matters when it comes to a book by her. I MUST get it, MUST own it, MUST read it and I know without a single doubt that I'll love it.
She's just THAT talented and I'm THAT in love with not only her characters but her writing. She has magical fingers, this one ;)

So when I found out she'd be writing a trilogy for the infamous Vlad Tepesh I think I fainted while …

-Review- Finale by Becca Fitzpatrick

Image
Goodreads Shortie:
Will love conquer all?

Nora and Patch thought their troubles were behind them. Hank is gone and they should be able to put his ugly vendetta to rest. But in Hank's absence, Nora has become the unwitting head of the Nephilim and must finish what Hank began. Which ultimately means destroying the fallen angels - destroying Patch.

Nora will never let that happen, so she and Patch make a plan: lead everyone to believe they have broken up, and work the system from the inside.***** My Thoughts? As if Crescendo wasn't enough of a tearjerker for me... Silence came to ruin the happy ending and my giddy feelings... and then of COURSE things had to end like THAT on Silence so we could have the freaking roller-coaster that this book is.

-Patch placed his hand in mine, gripping it tightly. "Quite the opposite, Blythe. Your daughter means everything to me. Completely and wholly. I love her---it's as simple as that."-
There is no other way to describe it!!

Excited, excited, excited for my stop on this blog tour! I read the book as soon as I got my digital copy and boy what a surprise! Anyway, I'm just about to share my thoughts on it ;) Check it out and don't miss all the OTHER STOPS

*** Stella
“I’ve been in and out of hospitals for the past ten months. I’ve had half my liver removed and even though this time the doctors are very optimistic that they’ve removed all of the tumours, they can’t be sure. In another three months they want me here again for a check up. Right now I feel better than I’ve ever felt. I know the damn thing is gone, at least for the moment. Despite that, I can’t make any plans for the future, not yet. I need to go somewhere where nobody knows me, where I can relax and maybe even forget about all this. Where I can meet people who don’t think of me as the girl who lost her father and her brother in a car accident, and who has cancer. I want to have fun, even if it’s for a couple of months.” 
When Stella decides…

Synopsis:
Maddie Martin's first weekend at college is nothing like she's used to. It's wild, like the wilderness on which the University of Bellam Springs sits. Roped into going to a frat party, she literally runs into Kyle Hadley. The boy she's loved since she was nine. The boy she promised all of her firsts to. But that was before his father killed her parents. 
Determined to stay away from him, she throws herself into her music. Practicing piano eases her heavy heart, calms the sadness, and pushes away images of Kyle's face. 
Until it doesn't. 
Her music professor asks her to play a duet for their annual Graduation Gala. Doing so means she'll be assured another full ride scholarship. It's an opportunity she can't pass up. 
But Kyle is the other half of the duet. And that means hours and hours of practicing.

-BookPics is Curious- Hectic ¿?

Hey guys!!
So sorry I haven't been posting regularly or as regularly as I've always done... Sorry sorry!
Anyway.

I'm in the middle of a somewhat family crisis... Nothing to do with family but with health...

I've been all over the place... Hospitals, banks, resting, hospitals again, dealing with family out of the country freaking out... It's kind of hectic... The worst part is that I'm still recovering from my surgery this past week and since I'm the oldest sibling you can only imagine (if you're a firstborn you'll understand me) what chaos I'm kind of going through right now.

Hopefully though everything will, somewhat, go back to normal this weekend but who the freak knows!?

My arm hurts, itches, and burns all at the same time, I still can't drive, I'm still recovering from my gastritis attack just this past week and I'm freaking out about what to eat every other hour. And now we have to deal with another sick person in the family.

*** Moonset, a coven of such promise . . . Until they turned to the darkness.

A deadly assault by a wraith, claiming to work for Moonset’s most dangerous disciple, Cullen Bridger, forces the five teens to be evacuated to Carrow Mill. But when dark magic wreaks havoc in their new hometown, Justin and his siblings are immediately suspecte…
