Cover Reveal: Tone Deaf by Olivia Rivers

Jul 31, 2013

Every once in a while, I come across a book that isn't in a category I usually read--like New Adult--but sounds very interesting. That's the case with today's cover reveal of Tone Deaf by Olivia Rivers, hosted by Xpresso Book Tours. I have yet to read a New Adult book, though there are a few that intrigue me, this one included. And sometimes I want to tell others about that book. So now, without further adieu, please listen up as I present you to Tone Deaf!

Earlier this year I read a certain book that I believe I threw when I finished it. But I still loved it. The writing was gorgeous, the story unique, and it was just great. But after that ending, like, what?! I needed the next book! Fortunately, the info for the next book has been revealed, and it's another awesomely creepy sounding retelling. There may be multiple personalities in...

Here's the deal with this book. I saw it on someone's Waiting on Wednesday and immediately wanted to read it. Not because of the synopsis--no, I don't even really care about the synopsis. (Not that it's bad. It sounds kind of interesting.) This, as I said on Goodreads, is why: "This cover has me SOLD. I could hate this book but I still might buy it because the cover is soooooooo pretty." In my opinion, there is something that is just so pretty and stunning about it and I WANT IT ON MY SHELF.

This was the summer that would change my life.

No more being what everyone expected. No more doing what everyone else wanted. 


So when Luke came into my life, I decided to keep him a secret. Maybe he as a dead-ringer for notorious Hollywood bad boy Trent Yves. And it was possible that everything he told me was a lie. And yes, I was probably asking for trouble. But all I saw was Luke--sweet, funny, caring--someone who would let me be the real me. 


But which was the real him?

Mara Dyer once believed she could run from her past.

She’s wrong.

In this gripping sequel to The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, the truth evolves and choices prove deadly. What will become of Mara Dyer next?

In case you didn't get it from the name of this blog, I'm a HUGE fan of all things Beauty and the Beast. So when a retelling comes along it goes straight on my TBR list. This book is no exception, AND it has a gorgeous cover. I just wish it came out sooner so I can read it right now! *cries*

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the first book in this series, and I also liked the second book. While I hate to see the series--and the characters--go, I really want to know what will happen in the final book, for I have no idea. I get the feeling that it may give me all kinds of feels! The ending will either be short-lived or...

Review: Firelight by Sophie Jordan

Jul 6, 2013

Title: Firelight
Author: Sophie Jordan
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publishing Date: September 7, 2010
Pages/Format: 323, Hardcover
A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.
Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki, a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.
Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away; if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.
Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide.

Okay, so I'm kind of cheating with this one, but it's for a good reason. You see, I've already this book--but I'm still waiting on it, for two reasons. One, because I want to own it. Like now. Two, because I want YOU to know about it. It's a really, really good book, and it was constantly on my mind during and after I read it. Get ready for a lesson as you learn...
