 Right now, I am reading Blood Red Road by Moria Young and i just dropped it down! I just couldn't get into the book since the writing style was not for me and I'll try again, soon, hopefully! ;3 But if that happens I'll go with a book I want to read ASAP! So that it makes up for it!

Deadly Little Vocies-Lauria Faria Stolarz

Deadly Little Voices (Touch, #4)Deadly Little Voices
Date Released: December 6th, 2011
Publisher: Hyperion
Pages: 343 pages
Date Read:  December 18, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Source: Bought from Barnes and Noble
Goodreads Synopsis:  High school junior Camelia thought her powers of psychometry only gave her the ability to sense the future through touch. But now she’s started to hear voices. Mean voices. Berating her, telling her how ugly she is, and that she’d be better off dead. It’s a troubling development that has Camelia terrified for her mental stability, especially since her deranged aunt with a suicidal history just moved into the family house. More torturing, ex-boyfriend Ben, who has similar psychometric abilities, has been spending more time with their classmate Alejandra, even as her own feelings for Adam grow stronger. Still, the bond between Camelia and Ben is palpable.



With the line between right and wrong fraying, Camelia turns to pottery to get a grasp on her emotions. She begins sculpting a beautiful figure skater, only to receive frightening premonitions that someone’s in danger. But who is the victim? And how can Camelia help them when she is on the brink of losing her own sanity?


My Review:
Oooh my goodness this book was amazing, breath-taking, and suspenseful all at the same time! Deadly Little Voices will not disappoint your if you read her other "Touch" novels you know she a writer that knows her stuff!

Camelia was a head-on-strong character. She is already hearing voices just like her Aunt Alexia and she deals with them on a daily basis, her heart is torn for Adam and Ben (will get to them in a sec!) yeah isn't that pretty hardcore and throw in a awesome mystery? Perfection!
To sum up her life it would be like this:

Camelia + Adam=hell yeah! Camelia + Ben = Noo! :( Kimmie and Wes=They should totally go out! Aunt Alexia + Mental Institute=help :/
Ben was pretty swoon worthy but he really kinda got weird in this book, don't you think? I mean he was always forcing Camelia to be safe and all, he got pretty paranoid in this book. Adam, well let me say he is so perfect for Camelia! He has the great looks, the trust, and everything, but there was something about Ben I miss for Camelia like in the first book. Now in this one, he's going out with Alejandra, really Ben?


Yeah Ben...
Yeah Ben....
Everything for Camelia lies on her powers of psychomentry. It gave her to see the future, only know its getting worse. She's hearing vocies that tell her she should be dead and long gone and it takes a big toll on her. Not to mention she's struggling with her social life, Ben[Ex] and Adam. Her Aunt Alexia also moved in and is also experiencing weird conditions also. Now Camelia must get a grip on her "touch" in sculpting a figure skater who she has no clue who it is. And now Camelia is left in the brink of losing her sanity.

I really love Kimmie in this one! She's witty, fun, and I like it when she calls Camelia "Chameleon" I also like how she really gets in Camelia, to stop and tell her friends what's going on with her and did I mention her and Wes are perfect? And Camelia was pretty Kick-ass in this book series. And Adam and Camelia let's swoon again! *Smiles*

Overally this book was amazing! Notting didn't disappoint me and I love Laurie's writing so much! She is a really talented writer! And the end was pretty awesome!

The Serpent's Kiss
Serpent's Kiss
by Melissa De La Cruz
Published: June 12th 2012 by Hyperion

The intriguing Beauchamp family, introduced in the New York Times bestselling Witches of East End, returns in Serpent’s Kiss, with dizzying plot twists and spellbinding magic.

Joanna and her daughters, bookish Ingrid and wild-child Freya, are just settling into the newfound peace that has been cast over their small, off-the map town of North Hampton. With the centuries-old restriction against practicing magic lifted, casting spells, mixing potions, and curing troubled souls has never felt so good for the three witches. That is, until everything gets turned upside down—from Joanna’s organized kitchen to Ingrid’s previously nonexistent love life to Freya’s once unshakeable faith in her sexy soul mate, Killian Gardiner.

When Freya’s twin brother, Freddie, suddenly returns, escaped from Limbo and professing innocence on a long-ago crime, Freya should be ecstatic. The golden boy can do no wrong. Or can he? Freddie blames no other than her fiancĂ© Killian for his downfall, and enlists Freya’s help to prove it. Now Freya doesn’t know who to believe or trust.

And for the first time in—well, forever, really—Ingrid is also busy in love. Matt Noble, the handsome and charming police detective, has won her heart. But can romance work between a virgin witch and a mortal who doesn’t believe in magic? Things get even more complicated when it appears Ingrid is harboring the prime suspects in Matt’s police investigation.

To add to the chaos, a dead spirit is attempting to make contact with Joanna—but does it mean to bring harm or help? Joanna asks her sort-of ex-husband Norman to help figure it out, only to accidentally invite him to a Thanksgiving dinner with a dapper gentleman she’s recently begun dating.

As the witches pull together to discover the serpent within their midst and the culprit behind Freddie’s imprisonment, everything is thrown into peril. Will the discovery come too late to save those they love most?

Melissa de la Cruz weaves all this and more in a blockbuster sequel that is not to be missed by her fans, and one that is sure to enchant new readers of the series.

This Week's Question:

Have you ever looked at a book’s cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, instead were pleasantly surprised?

My Answer:
Yes! I almost always do that, even if they don't say don't judge a book by its cover! lol :) This happened to me several times, especially when I say Switched by Amanda Hocking I thought the cover was total lame (the old one of course). I eventually bought it and loved the book so much!


Then there was Laurie Faria Stolarz's Deadly Little Secrets Cover which was defiently not "amazing" but I loved the story every bit!

Books To Pine For (#1)

Books To Pine For is Hosted @ The Story Siren

Release Date: June 19th 2012 by Razorbill   
The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2)
Synopsis:  Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives.

Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she’s been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist.

But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age-old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don’t die. But it’s her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her.

When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney’s loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she's supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she's been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her.

Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?
  

Release Date: March 27th 2012 by Balzer + Bray
Synopsis: Vee Bell is certain of one irrefutable truth—her sister’s friend Sophie didn’t kill herself. She was murdered.

Vee knows this because she was there. Everyone believes Vee is narcoleptic, but she doesn’t actually fall asleep during these episodes: When she passes out, she slides into somebody else’s mind and experiences the world through that person’s eyes. She’s slid into her sister as she cheated on a math test, into a teacher sneaking a drink before class. She learned the worst about a supposed “friend” when she slid into her during a school dance. But nothing could have prepared Vee for what happens one October night when she slides into the mind of someone holding a bloody knife, standing over Sophie’s slashed body.

Vee desperately wishes she could share her secret, but who would believe her? It sounds so crazy that she can’t bring herself to tell her best friend, Rollins, let alone the police. Even if she could confide in Rollins, he has been acting off lately, more distant, especially now that she’s been spending more time with Zane.

Enmeshed in a terrifying web of secrets, lies, and danger and with no one to turn to, Vee must find a way to unmask the killer before he or she strikes again.

Such a RushSuch A Rush by Jennifer Echols

Release Date: July 10th 2012 by MTV Books                     
Synopsis: A sexy and poignant romantic tale of a young daredevil pilot caught between two brothers.
High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever.

But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business--until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers--and the consequences could be deadly.
