Teaser #1: "Why?" I ask.

I laugh painfully. " Now that you've seen it, you must think I'm crazy."
Teaser #2: "Deirdre is still talking, but I can't hang on to consiciousness long enough to hear what other horrors she tells me."
Pg. 294 last paragraph

Cover Reveal: Gravity, Tilt, and Hidden


Hi guys! I have lots of great, beautiful cover reveals for you today! Hope you love them and leave your links to your cover reveals!

Tilt
by Ellen Hopkins

No Goodreads Summary Yet

Cold Heart
by Amy Garvey

No Goodreads Summary Yet

Gravity
by Melissa West

In the future, only one rule will matter: Don’t. Ever. Peek.

Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed--arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die.

Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know--especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war


Hidden
by Sophie Jordan

*Spoliers if you haven't read the first two!*
*Read at your own risk*

A dangerous journey.
Shattered bonds.
Undying passion.

Jacinda was supposed to bond with Cassian, the "prince" of their pride.
But she resisted long before she fell in love with Will—a human and, worse,
a hunter. When she ran away with Will, it ended in disaster, with Cassian's sister, Miram, captured. Weighed down by guilt, Jacinda knows she must rescue
her to set things right. Yet to do so she will have to venture deep into the heart of enemy territory.
The only way Jacinda can reach Miram is by posing as a prisoner herself,
though once she assumes that disguise, things quickly spiral out of her control.
As she learns more about her captors, she realizes that even if Will and Cassian
can carry out their part of the plan, there's no guarantee they'll all make it out alive. But what Jacinda never could have foreseen is that escaping would be
only the beginning....
Loyalties are tested and sacrifices made in the explosive conclusion to Sophie Jordan's Firelight trilogy.

Now...What do you guys think?! What books looks like awesomesauce based off their cover?
I read the summary for Gravity and I so want to read that book right now! The sypnosis sounds dark, suspenseful, and tons of action with romance! And did you see the cover? I love it! I cannot wait to read it!

What are your Cover Reveals???!! :D

Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Pages:  498 pages
Date Read: December 15, 2011
Format:  Hardcover
Source: Amazon
Goodreads Synopsis:In the magical underworld of Victorian London, Tessa Gray has at last found safety with the Shadowhunters. But that safety proves fleeting when rogue forces in the Clave plot to see her protector, Charlotte, replaced as head of the Institute. If Charlotte loses her position, Tessa will be out on the street and easy prey for the mysterious Magister, who wants to use Tessa's powers for his own dark ends.  
With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister'sShadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move and that one of their own has betrayed them.
Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, though her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will; the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?
As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

My Review:

Story of my life reading Clockwork Prince.....
 
How I was when I got the book....


Hmm..Cassandra Clare you good.. lol :D


How I was when Tessa was torn for Will and Jem. Also the betrayls in this book.


The ending....
Where do I start with this book???!!! I got OCD checking the mailboxes everyday till this book was in my hand. Seriously...I never been so excited for a book and I went overboard with this one! I read all the reviews on it, to make me super excited about it, went ahead and read Clockwork Angel again. All for this final moment 2 days when it was published I got it and I read it instantly! :D

Did Clockwork Prince Deliver?

Cassandra Clare you broke my heart, feelings, and emotions into pages of this book! So so good. Flipping amazing. Clockwork Prince is pure perfection! :)
Definitely!!! Clockwork Prince was way better than Clockwork Angel and was amazing in every way. Cassandra Clare delivers all the dark, sinister streets of Victorian London back with a twist of heart-aching romance and action making you stay up all night to read it.

Wow..Just wow. It blew me away. Clockwork Prince picks up immediately after Clockwork Angel. Charlotte is on line for London's Institute. Tessa is torn between Jem and Will. Everything just on the line for everybody and they all know they aren't safe. Tessa is safe under the Institute, in London. She knows that her brother is somewhere out there, twisted and sick under the mind of Mortamin, and will do anything to get him back with Will and Jem. The three journey to unravel hidden secrets of the past from the slums of a secret party to a abandoned tea house. When they travel to the Yorkshire Manor, Will is faced with a clockwork automon holding a stunning revelation Will knows no one is safe, especially with the Magister out there.

I loved Tessa, Jem , Charolette, Magnus, everyone more and I can't wait to see them in Clockwork Princess! Tessa, she was torn, torn between Jem and Will. This book was like a war for he heart but for the heck of it TEAM WILL!!! There's lots more to both of them in this book and Jem really surprised me in the end! Will really iritated me. I actually thought he was biopolar! Happy for Tessa one time and then getting touching then ending up mad. Really Will?? What's going on with you?? But in the end I was Team Will. Though I have to see if that will change in Clockwork Princess.

The level of action is intense. There's heart-break and betralys that you could never believe! Especially Jessemine! Such a backstabber, but that's all I'm saying about her. Nate? I feel really sad for him in the end but there's a motive to what he's doing in Clockwork Prince and I love how Clare kept it toward the end.

The more I talk about this book I might think I will give spoilers!! Go out, buy this book, and read it the second you get it. Right now. Now! This book will not disapoint and I love the Infernal Devices more than the Mortal Instruments!

P.S Have a box of tissues and something great to eat because your reading for a perfect thrill ride!! :D
This book is so right.
This book is perfection.
I love this book.
Cassie Clare I'm going to punch you because of the ending!! :(
Will.
Jem.
Will.
Jem.
Buy it already.

Follow Friday (#1)

Hosted @ Parajunkee

This Week's Question:

Q: BeefcakeandBabes Asks: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

Hmm...I think the most unique character name I came across was Schulyer and Bliss from Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz and I LOVE this series! I like how when I say Schulyer it sounds really smooth and so does Bliss when I say it! It kinda wierd but I really like these names! :D

Perception-Kim Harrington

Perception by Kim Harrignton
Date Released: March 1st 2012 
Publisher: Scholastic Point
Pages: 288 pages
Date Read: Feb 10, 2012
Format:  ARC
Source: From publisher inexchange for a review
Goodreads Synopsis: When you can see things others can't, what do you do when someone's watching you?

Everybody knows about Clarity "Clare" Fern. She's the psychic girl in school, the one who can place her hands on something and see hidden visions from the past.

Only Clare would rather not be a celebrity. She prefers hanging back, observing. Her gift is not a game to her.

But then someone starts playing with her head . . . and heart. Messages and gifts from a secret admirer crop up everywhere Clare turns. Could they be from Gabriel, the gorgeous boy who gets Clare's pulse racing? Or from Justin, Clare's hopeful ex-boyfriend who'd do anything to win her back?

One thing is certain. Clare needs to solve this mystery, and soon. Because the messages are becoming sinister, and a girl in town has suddenly disappeared.
My Review:
Perception by Kim Harrington is a quick, witty, sacrastic, suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat type of book. Everything about this book was amazing. I was laughing for a moment then the next page I was being super-paranoid about stalkers and obsessions. Yup, this book has it all and is on the top of my list for 2012 releases! :)
Everything for Clare "Clarity" Fern is one the line. Her growing attraction to Gabriel, who's more than a friend, Justin; the guy that wants her back, her sanity, everything, As she starts getting messages, packages that play with her mind and heart.
But everything changes when a girl goes missing, Sierra Waldman and the town baffled. Clare decided to use her powers for the good and helps undercover what happened to Sierra with the help of Gabriel, Justin, and Mallory her new friend. Mallory for me was really nice at times but yet creeping as if she was watching Clare and was playing with her. She really creeped me out! *Goes inside a blanket* But she really susprised me in the end!
The ending was jaw-dropping, especially with the idea of a stalker following you without you ever figuring it out!! I just loved the ending! And this book really gave me the chills and paranoia of stalkers...just saying! lol
This book really changed my perspective on stalkers. They are real and they do kill people over a deep obsession. They can take pcitures of you, take small things you don't even notice. Its insane and things like that really happen! I read Lauria Faria Stolarz's Toouch novels and they are really creepy! I loved Perception and would totally read it again! :D

And yes I agree with the frog...
