Bianca St. Germain works at a Night House, a place where vampires like the aristocratic Jeremiah Archer pay to feed on humans, and she doesn’t much care what others think of her. The money is good, and at least there, she’s safe. Bianca also doesn’t care that the Night House is killing her. All she cares about is nauth, the highly addictive poison in vampire bites that brings a euphoria like no drug ever could. 

But when Bianca meets James, a reclusive empath who feels everything she does, for the first time, she considers a life outside of the Night House and a someone worth living for. But Jeremiah has decided to keep Bianca for himself; he won’t allow her to walk away. 

As she allows her feelings for James to grow, she struggles to contain nauth's strong hold on her life. If they are to have a future, James must make her see what she's worth and what she means to him, before Jeremiah and nauth claim her for good.

Class of 2014: YA Superlative Blogfest - Day 4

Is it really that time of the year? No, not the time filled with red and green and presents and the perfume of pine. I mean the time filled with fireworks and a late night party around the world and a marathon of The Walking Dead that I will totally be watching, even though I own all four seasons on DVD. IT IS THE END OF THE FREAKING YEAR. Most importantly, it's the time of year to rank all the books we spent most of the year reading.

Review: Popular by Maya Van Wagenen

Title: Popular: Vintage Wisdom for a Modern Geek
Author: Maya Van Wagenen
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Publishing Date: April 15, 2014
Pages/Format: 272, Hardcover
Add on Goodreads!

A touchingly honest, candidly hysterical memoir from breakout teen author Maya Van Wagenen. 

"Stuck at the bottom of the social ladder at pretty much the lowest level of people at school who aren’t paid to be here,” Maya Van Wagenen decided to begin a unique social experiment: spend the school year following a 1950s popularity guide, written by former teen model Betty Cornell. Can curlers, girdles, Vaseline, and a strand of pearls help Maya on her quest to be popular? 

The real-life results are painful, funny, and include a wonderful and unexpected surprise—meeting and befriending Betty Cornell herself. Told with humor and grace, Maya’s journey offers readers of all ages a thoroughly contemporary example of kindness and self-confidence.
