Immortals By Ednah Walters

Immortals By Ednah Walters

Nothing can stop Raine Cooper when she wants something...
Raine finally knows that her gorgeous neighbor, Torin St. James, is a legend straight out of Norse mythology, and that her feelings for him are strong. Torin is crazy about Raine too, breaking the one rule he lives by: Never fall for a mortal. The problem is he no longer remembers her, his memories erased by Norns—Norse destiny deities—to punish her for defying them.

So Raine comes up with a plan...
She will make Torin forget his one rule a second time and fall in love with her all over again. 
But she quickly learns that well-laid plans do not work when dealing with deities and supernatural beings. Desperate, Raine makes choices that could not only tear her and Torin further apart, but lead to the destruction of everything and everyone she loves





At the end of Runes, we see Raine running to Torin and kissing him,but him not remembering who Raine is. In the second book, Raine has come back from a vacation with her family and is going to school, but seeing Torin again does funny things to her heart. He still doesn't remember her, but she has more important things to deal with then her sexy, valkyrie ex-boyfriend…….no not really. But something is going on with Eirik. And not just anything, but something connected to Torin, her mother, her trainer Lavinia, and the Norse Gods. Eirik is a family member of the Gods and not just any Gods, but Odin's son Baldur. He is a deity but is being raised as a human because the Norns saw something in Eirik's future that scared everyone and Raine is supposed to protect him. But soon he is getting runes….and knowing how they are getting there. It's an ongoing mystery that is going to have to solve before he turns evil. And while all this is going on, Torin is finally remembering his memories of Raine and is determined to help her no matter what.

Bad News: It is the end of Raine and Torin's story and it is kind of a cliffhanger were we don't know what will happen to the both of them in the future, but we want to know anyways. 
Good News: It is super amazing and deceives 5 stars. It is absolutely a great ending to Raine and Torni's story.
Great News: There is going o be a third book that deals with Cora and a certain Grimnir. And we might be able to see Raine and Torin again.   

Grimnirs expected publication: December 2, 2013

Runes by Ednah Walters

Runes by Ednah Walters

Seventeen-year-old Raine Cooper has enough on her plate dealing with her father’s disappearance, her mother’s erratic behavior and the possibility of her boyfriend relocating. The last thing she needs is Torin St. James—a mysterious new neighbor with a wicked smile and uncanny way of reading her.

Raine is drawn to Torin’s dark sexiness against her better judgment, until he saves her life with weird marks and she realizes he is different. But by healing her, Torin changes something inside Raine. Now she can’t stop thinking about him. Half the time, she’s not sure whether to fall into his arms or run.

Scared, she sets out to find out what Torin is. But the closer she gets to the truth the more she uncovers something sinister about Torin. What Torin is goes back to an ancient mythology and Raine is somehow part of it. Not only are she and her friends in danger, she must choose a side, but the wrong choice will cost Raine her life.





When I bought Runes I didn't think I would like it very much. When I read about Torin St. James and it said something about dark sexiness and mysterious, I knew that I would have to buy the book and I am so glad I did. Raine's life has been in turmoil ever since her father disappeared in a plane accident. She believes that her mother is starting to lose it because her mother still believes that her father is still alive. Her best friend/unofficial boyfriend might have to move away and now a mysterious new neighbor has moved into the house next to hers and he's definitely different and….drop dead gorgeous and his name is Torin St. James. She is feeling something for Torin, but knows she has to stay away at least in the beginning. But now she is starting to see things moving tattoos and strange markings. Raine is discovering that she is connected with the new people who have moved to town and especially to Torin, but what will happen when she finally uncovers the secrets Torin wants to share and Raine might not want to know after all? And someone special has come see Raine and her mother. I want a Torin!!! He is drop dead gorgeous, sexy, and definitely mysterious. Something every girl wants in a guy. This definitely remind me a little bit of Cassandra Claire's, The Mortal Instruments, but it is dealing with Norse mythology. The are Valkyries, runes, Gods, and sexy, mysterious neighbors. How could this book not be a total swoon-worthy book?







Want to See Torin? 
Here he is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



















Shatter Me & Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Shatter Me & Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi 


Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.


tick
tick
tick
tick
tick
it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life.

   What would it be like to never touch another person. To never get close to anyone in case of the chance that they will touch your skin. Non of us could ever go through what Juliette had to go through. Juliette has been in an insane asylum. She hasn't talked or touched anyone in 264 days. Then one day they gave her a roommate. A boy named Adam, but everything is not as it seems. He is part of the Reestablishment, the people who locked her up in the first place. Then we meet Warner. He is the head person for their sector and the son of the Supreme Commander. He will make her feel like a monster. But there is Adam and he believes differently. And he can do the most unexpected thing ever. And this is how Juliette and Adam escape the Reestablishment and find sanctuary in Omega Point. This is what starts everything. Nobody is able to touch Juliette. She accidentally killed a little boy by touching him. She was just trying to help him up because he fell. 

   Tahereh Mafi did an excellent job with Shatter Me. It combines kids love of superpowers and a dystopian world were one organization is trying right the world of all its wrongs. Juliette is an interesting character. The ability to kill with a touch. It's not something she ever wanted. She just wants to be loved is impossible with the her power. Adam can touch Juliette. He gives her a reason to be happy, to live, and to fight. Warner just wants Juliette to understand that they belong together, that they are the same, and that he understands the pain she has gone through.

    Juliette and Adam are now in Omega Point, a resistance that is full of teens and adults who have gifts like Juliette. But there is something wrong with Adam. He has a gift as well. He can disable other abilities. But it comes with a price, especially when it come to Juliette. But Juliette and her friend Kenji have discovered something about Juliette's gift. When she freaks out, her body goes into protective state. And when people who are in the patrol go missing, she will have to use her ability, but only after one of the biggest reveals comes into play. Warner has been taken as a hostage by Omega Point, and Juliette has been appointed to watch over him. She will see a different side of Warner that no one else has seen and because of the earlier reveal, everyone will know the secret Juliette and Warner have kept. She will have to choose between Warner and Adam soon or everything the Omega has worked for will be ruined and Juliette is ready to deal out the punishment for the pain everyone has caused her.

   Unravel Me was one of the best books I have ever read. There were reveals that I didn't think were possible, but the way Tahereh Mafi did it made it possible. She has now twisted everything we knew to be true. She has now given Juliette every reason to go after the Reestablishment and the Supreme Commander and she will. And because of the twists, Juliette has been given a choice. A choice that will be very hard to make. A choice between guys. I can't wait for Ignite Me.



Expected publication: February 4th 2014 
The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, called "a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love"

Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she'll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew-about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam-was wrong.

In Shatter Me, Tahereh Mafi created a captivating and original story that combined the best of dystopian and paranormal and was praised by Publishers Weekly as "a gripping read from an author who's not afraid to take risks." The sequel, Unravel Me, blew readers away with heart-racing twists and turns, and New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia said it was "dangerous, sexy, romantic, and intense." Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and climactic end.

Teaser Tuesday 11/26/13 The Shadowhunter's Codex by Cassandra Claire & Joshua Lewis

The Codex by Cassandra Claire & Joshua Lewis



Delve into the details of all things Shadowhunter with this illustrated guide to the knowledge and lore of the Shadowhunter world.

Since the thirteenth century, the Shadowhunter’s Codex has been the one and only manual for Shadowhunters looking to brush up on their demon languages, learn proper stele use, and discover just what exactly a pyxis is. Featured in both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, this guide is a necessity for any young Nephilim on their journey to becoming a Shadowhunter. Beautifully illustrated, the Codex contains images of the famous Shadowhunter homeland of Idris, as well as depictions of demons and other Downworlders.

But this isn’t just any copy of The Shadowhunter’s Codex. It’s Clary’s copy, and as an artist herself, she’s sketched pictures of her friends and family in the book, and scrawled helpful advice in the margins. Of course, she couldn’t exactly stop Jace or Simon from adding their thoughts either. Part encyclopedia, part history, part training manual—complete with commentary from Shadowhunters who have seen it all—this beautiful guide is a perfect supplement to the #1 New York Times bestselling series



Why Do People Become Shadowhunters, by Mangus Bane

Possible Reasons Why:
  1. You possess stout heart, strong will, and able body.
  2. You possess a stout body, able will, and wrong heart.
  3. Local Shadowhunters are ironically punishing you by making you join them.
  4. You were recruited by a Local Institute to join the Nephilim as an ironic punishment for you mistreatment of Downworlders.
  5. Your home, village, or nation is under siege by demons.
  6. Your home, village, or nation is under siege by rouge Downworlders.
  7. You were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
  8. You know too much, and should be recruited because the secrecy of the Shadow World has already been compromised for you.
  9. You know too little; it would be helpful to the Shadowhunters if you knew more.
  10. You know exactly the right amount , making you a natural recruit.
  11. You possess a natural resistance to glamour magic and must be recruited to keep you quiet and provide you with some basic protection.
  12. You have a compound last name already and convinced someone important that yours is a Shadowhunter family and the Shadowhuntersiness has just been weakened by generations of poor breeding.
  13. You had a torrid affair with a member of the Nephilim Council, and now he's trying to cover his tracks.
  14. Shadowhunters are concerned enough, they are no longer haughty and condescending enough—have sought you out to add a much needed boost of haughty condescension.
  15. You ave been bitten by a radioactive Shadowhunter, giving you the proportional strength and speed of a Shadowhunter.
  16. Large bearded man on flying motorcycle appeared to take you away to Shadowhunter school. (Note: Presence of flying motorcycle suggests bearded man may be a vampire.)
  17. Your mom has been in hiding from your evil dad, and you found out you're a Shadowhunter only a few weeks ago.
                        That's right. Seventeen reasons. Because that's how many I thought of. Now run off, little Shadowhunter, and learn to murder things. And be nice to Downworlders.

Teaser Tuesday 11/19/13 Die For Me by Amy Plum

Die for Me by Amy Plum


In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.

When Kate Mercier's parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life--and memories--behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate's guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he's a revenant--an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.




"Where is he? Lucian?" she asked numbly.
"Dead." I said simply.
She looked at me and asked, "What happened?"
"How much did you see?" I asked her.
She gave me a weak smile and said, "Enough to know that my sister is one badass fighter."

Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout 11/15/13

Covenant Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout



      

   



This series is very unique and amazing. It is different then her Lux series that deals with HOT aliens!!!! I and I mean it. HOT Aliens that look like us, talk like us, but have an ego the size of the world (not kidding!). But this series deals with a girl named Alex who's has returned from the Mortal world after three years because her mother took her away. She was told something would happen to Alex if she didn't get her out of the place they called "home", the Covenant. Now that Alex is back under…saddening circumstances, she will have to go back into training. She is a half-blood. She is the child of a pure Hematoi (washed down version of a demigod) and a mortal. Her trainer is Aiden. The hardest, meanest, sexiest trainer there is at the Covenant and also a pure blood. This whole series is about Alex and her journey through many hardships, many harder then others, and how she is going to make it through 18 since there is going to be a major change on her birthday. A change that will definitely change history and the lives around her. THIS IS A SERIES THAT IS VERY MUCH RECOMMENDED!!!!!! I GIVE IT 5 STARS!!!!

Daimon (0.5):

"Love in my world usually ended up with someone hearing 'I smite thee ' as she was cursed to be some lame flower for the rest of her life." For three years, Alexandria has lived among mortals--pretending to be like them and trying to forget the duty she'd been trained to fulfill as a child of a mortal and a demigod. At seventeen, she's pretty much accepted that she's a freak by mortal standards... and that she'll never be prepared for that duty. According to her mother, that's a good thing.But as every descendant of the gods knows, Fate has a way of rearing her ugly head. A horrifying attack forces Alex to flee Miami and try to find her way back to the very place her mother had warned her she should never return-the Covenant. Every step that brings her closer to safety is one more step toward death... because she's being hunted by the very creatures she'd once trained to kill. The daimons have found her.

Half-blood:

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals--well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck

Pure:

There is need. And then there is Fate. 
Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her. When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon--and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude--or killing her. When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

Deity:

"History is on repeat, and things didn't go so well the last time. "


Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner... and so is Aiden. 

If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome. 

But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed. 

Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate

Elixir (3.5):

Aiden St. Delphi will do anything to save Alex. 
Even if it means doing the one thing he will never forgive himself for. 
Even if it means making war against the gods.

Apollyon: 

Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.

Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.

The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.

Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself.

Sentinel:

It's a beautiful day for a war.

As the mortal world slowly slips into chaos of the godly kind, Alexandria Andros must overcome a stunning defeat that has left her shaken and in doubt of their ability to end this war once and for all.

And with all the obstacles between Alex and her happily-ever-after with the swoonworthy Aiden St. Delphi, they must now trust a deadly foe as they travel deep into the Underworld to release one of the most dangerous gods of all time.

In the stunning, action-packed climax to the bestselling Covenant series, Alex must face a terrible choice: the destruction of everything and everyone she holds dear… or the end of herself.

June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities.

But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.


I can't wait to read this. The first two books were amazing, but this is going to decide everything once and for all!!! I really can't say more about this book until I read it and for people to read the first two, Legend and Prodigy. I think I need a re-read of both books so that I can be prepared for what's going to go down in Republic History.

Legend:

What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem. 

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets. 


Prodigy:

Injured and on the run, it has been seven days since June and Day barely escaped Los Angeles and the Republic with their lives. Day is believed dead having lost his own brother to an execution squad who thought they were assassinating him. June is now the Republic's most wanted traitor. Desperate for help, they turn to the Patriots - a vigilante rebel group sworn to bring down the Republic. But can they trust them or have they unwittingly become pawns in the most terrifying of political games?

Enders (Starters #2) by Lissa Price

With the Prime Destinations body bank destroyed, Callie no longer has to rent herself out to creepy Enders. But  Enders can still get inside her mind and make her do things she doesn't want to do. Like hurt someone she loves. Having the chip removed could save Callie's life - but it could also silence the voice in her head that might belong to her father. Callie has flashes of her ex-renter Helena's memories, too ...and the Old Man is back, filling her with fear. Who is real and who is masquerading in a teen body? This is the thrilling sequel to "Starters"









First, The first book was amazing!!!! What a great view on our Dystopian future! But the one thing I don't like about this book is the cover! If you bought the first book with the original cover, then this one would make no sense!!!

First Cover: 



Second Cover:






The better choice for the second book would be to do something close to this:


This looks closer to the original cover then the one that is going to be actually on the book. This would be my only dislike about the series. The change in covers make my book reading friends and I angry!. Chose one and stick to it!!

Starters By Lissa Price:

You can’t get them out of your head. . . .

“You’re not an Apollyon yet.”
