Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is all about sharing the books that I'm eagerly waiting to be released.

This week it's Illuminated by Erica Orloff released 8th December.

I am a sucker for romance and the sound of this one really drew me in...

Some loves are not made to last . . . Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history. Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story—and hers—takes on another life. For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret the diary hides. Their attraction is undeniable. As the two hunt down the truth behind the diary—and that of Heloise and Abelard’s ancient romance—their romance becomes all-consuming. But Callie knows it can’t last . . . love never does. Will their love that burns as bright as a shooting star flame out, or will these star-crossed lovers be able to defy history?

The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

  • Received for review.
  • Paperback: 384 pages
  • Publisher: Mira Ink (21 Oct 2011)
  • Language English
  • ISBN-10: 0778304795
  • ISBN-13: 978-0778304791

In less than twenty four hours, I'll be seventeen. Although, technically, I won't actually be turning seventeen. I've been in the Nevernever too long. When you're in Faery, you don't age. So while a year has passed in the real world, agewise I'm probably only a few days older than when I went in. In real life, I've changed so much I don't even recognize myself. My name is Meghan Chase. I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it. This time, there will be no turning back.

Thanks for Mira Ink for sending this to me for review.

Cover: This cover doesn't disappoint in the looks department.  Again another stunning cover- perfect for the beauty of the world of Fey.

Plot: Meghan and Ash have been exiled by Summer and Winter...but the Iron Fey are not done with them.  A false king sits on the Iron Throne, determined to destroy the oldbloods.  It's up to Meghan, Ash and Puck (with a little help from Grimalkin) to stop him.

So I wasn't overly thrilled with the first two books but I was told by many fellow reviewers to stick with it because it gets better.  And it did!  I actually felt The Iron Queen was  moving plotwise and had more depth to it, whereas I felt The Iron King and The Iron Daughter were slow and never really gripped me but with The Iron Queen I couldn't put it down as it was much better paced and actually managed to keep me reading.  Plus there was more Ash in this book which is the best thing about it hands down.  I still didn't warm to Meghan and I don't think I ever will.  I can just about tolerate her now- but why Ash and Puck love her I will never know. 
It definitely made me want to read the next book The Iron Knight which is in Ash's perspective (the end of The Iron Queen is in his point of view which I LOVED- favourite part of the book) and as I think my main issue with the series so far is that I don't like Meghan and it's in her perspective I can't wait to check out The Iron Knight as I'm sure it will be my favourite of the series.
Overall I'm glad I stuck with the may not be my favourite but it's still a good read and has managed to get me into faery books whereas no other book has managed to.
I would rate The Iron Queen 4.5/5 stars because I felt it really stepped up from the first two books and got me excited for the next book.

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

  • Paperback: 368 pages
  • Publisher: MIRA Books (15 April 2011)
  • Language English
  • ISBN-10: 0778304469
  • ISBN-13: 978-0778304463

  • Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her. Worse, Meghan s own fey powers have been cut off. She s stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can t help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.
  • Cover: Another stunning cover.  The blend of purple, white and blue combined with SPARKLES equals one beautiful and perfect for the magical world of faery.
Plot: Meghan can't ignore the faery world anymore, she's part of it whether she likes it or not.  Rules say Summer and Winter can't love so loving the Winter Prince seems hopeless.
With the death of The Iron King Machina the Iron fae plan to take the scepter of the seasons for it's power.  Meghan has to retreive it or the Nevernever will suffer.
3.5/5 stars.  I found this to be very slow at the beginning but for me it picked up the last 150 pages and then I couldn't put it down.  I still didn't like Meghan, I don't know about 'growing a backbone of Iron' it still seemed to me like she was a weak character, and I hated her for how she treated Puck in this book, he loves her and she completely used him.  She's supposed to love Ash and then she could do that, makes me very angry.  I dislike love triangles but this one seems to particulary grate on my nerves.  I was also majorly disappointed that one of my favourite characters was killed off...I was not impressed. 
The cover says 'the next Twilight' but for me, I actually prefer the Twilight Series.  I have enjoyed The Iron King and The Iron Daughter but haven't enjoyed them on the same level as I did Twilight.  I will read on in the series and I think my main problem with this series is the protagonist Meghan.  I can't seem to connect with her at all and most of the time just want her to be eaten (she doesn't listen to ANYONE) so as my favourite character is Ash I think that out of all of the books in the series I am looking forward to reading The Iron Knight as it's in HIS perspective and not irritating Meghan's.

The Z Word by Bella Street

  • Received from author
    • Paperback: 334 pages
    • Publisher: CreateSpace (June 5, 2011)
    • Language: English
    • ISBN-10: 1463567626
    • ISBN-13: 978-1463567620

The Z Word follows Seffy Carter and her longtime friends Gareth, Addison and Lani. The four besties share a past dysfunctional and dark enough to keep them bound together under do-over identities. But rends develop in their relationships from the flesh-eating pressures of ending up in 1980, in a Montana desert, surrounded by zombies wearing dated disco duds.

A huge thanks to Bella Street for sending this to me!

Cover: I really like this cover, everything is significant.  Girl on the front IS how I picture Seffy and the pink sun plays a part.  It took me AGES to spot the zombies at the bottom...I really didn't see them.  Fail for me there.

Plot: Seffy and her friends, Garreth, Lani and Addison had their normal lives in L.A. an then one moment everything changes.  A mysterious blast knocks them into 1980's Montana and into a desert full of zombies and a fight to survive.

I didn't know what to expect with this book.  I adored Bella Street's Kiss Me I'm Irish but I'd not read a zombie or post apocalyptic book before but I really enjoyed it.  What made this book for me was the writing, it's so witty that I found myself laughing out loud on more than one occasion.  I'd describe this book as's perfect if you're looking for something different, I have not read anything like this before.
Sometimes the characters frustrated me.  Seffy's constant denial grated on my nerves after a while.  Addision's seemingly pointless bitchiness (which I'm sure will be covered in book 2) which we don't find out about.
I really don't know where this series is going to go, which is great.  I'm looking forward to the surprises of finding out why they've been sent back and how, how the zombies came about and also they're past- why did they leave Montana and why is Seffy so distressed at being back there?
Plus there is so much potential for love interests here, I really don't know how that's going to play out- Seffy has a thing for Garreth but there are two other potential love interests, despite the romance not being the focal point of the book which was nice.  It flowed really quickly.  I never got bored.
I would give this book 4/5 stars.  It really drew me in and I can't wait to get stuck into book 2 The X Factor soon.

Top Ten Priority List

My TBR pile just keeps growing and so I decided to prioritise, these are the ten books that are at the top of my To Be Read Pile:

Breaking Dawn Part 1

Ok so yesterday me and my best friend saw Breaking Dawn Part 1 and I just thought I'd let you all know that it was AMAZING!  Honestly the best one yet.  The whole time I was just like "Oh My Gosh" and "Awww" and "Ohhhh".
Everything I had hoped to be in part 1 was in there and it was so well done.  Some parts actually came as a shock to me (but I will not say what those were for the sake of spoilers).
Needless to say I am now agonising until November next year when Part 2 comes out as well whenever the dvd is released.

Cover reveal and Excerpts: Unattainable by D. Apodaca

Another striking cover!  Black and purple work so wel together.  A perfect cover to follow CAPTIVATED.

Book 1


Spotting Mindy

She slowly turned. I breathed hard with anticipation. I could taste her lips on mine. I could feel her soft touch embracing me. And I pictured her loving eyes penetrating mine. But what I saw made me want to die. Her eyes were brown, not hazel. Her lips weren’t even rosy. Her hair was clearly dyed. This wasn’t my Lina.
"Hi." The girl said with interest as she looked me up and down. "Can I help you with something?" Then she slightly popped her hip out and set her hand upon it, smiling while waiting a reply.
I stayed frozen, staring at this girl as other feelings erupted inside me. Anger. Hate. Pain.
"What’s wrong with him?" She turned to Markus standing beside me after she had no response from me. He didn’t answer either. We both stared at this imposter as you would stare at an unwanted gift.

Questions from Dean

"What do you want from me?" I demanded.
Dean examined my eyes and looked disapointed in what he saw. "Do you remember anything?" He asked with hope.
"What are you talking about? I was with Shane, then I woke up here! He’ll kill you for this!" I warned.
Dean threw back his head and laughed. "That little mosquito can try." Then he lowered his eyes and cocked a smile. "I dare him."
The way he gazed at me was intense. I felt butterflies frantically flying in my stomach and up my chest. "What do you want from me?" I demanded, as I pretended not to feel a rush of excitement from his close presence.
"Do you remember anything from your human life?" Dean asked and tilted his head to the side.
"No." I responded immediately.
"Are you sure? Think really hard." Dean instisted.
"I don’t. I’ve already tried thinking really hard. Why is this so important?" I asked.
Ignoring my question, Dean asked, "Do you remember your friends? Family?"

Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Booking Through Thursday and a different question is posted every week.

Of the books you own, what’s the biggest category/genre?
Is this also the category that you actually read the most?

The genre I have the most of would be paranormal romance and it is the category I read most of, both adult and YA.

My Soul To Take (Soul Screamers book 1) by Rachel Vincent

UK Cover
Paperback: 288 pages
Publisher: Mira Books (1 Jan 2011)
Language English
ISBN-10: 0778303551
ISBN-13: 978-0778303558

Being a teenager just got much more complicated. There is something very wrong with Kaylee Cavanaugh: she senses when someone near her is about to die. And when that happens, a force beyond her control compels her to scream bloody murder. Literally. Kaylee just wants to enjoy having caught the attention of the hottest guy in school. But a normal date is hard to come by when Nash seems to know more about the need to scream than she does. And when classmates start dropping dead for no apparent reason, only Kaylee knows who'll be next.

US Cover

Cover: I'm not overly fond of the UK's kind of creepy.  I get it, it's relevant but it's not nice to look at put it that way.  So I visually prefer the US cover but it's much less relevant.  Hoever the covers get prettier as the books go on.

Plot: Kaylee just thought she was going crazy.  First she loses it and starts screaming in public and her Aunt and Uncle had her admitted.  The hottest guy in school, Nash Hudson, danced with HER.  And she knows when people are going to die.  Maybe she is going crazy.  Or...maybe she's something different.

Captain Wentworth's Persuasion by Regina Jeffers

Received for review

Paperback:  377 pages
Publisher: Ulysses Press (11 Mar 2010)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1569757763
ISBN-13: 978-1569757765

Insightful and dramatic, this novel recreates the original style, themes, and sardonic humor of Jane Austen’s novel while turning the entire tale on its head in a most engaging fashion. Readers hear Captain Wentworth’s side of this tangled story in the revelation of his thoughts and emotions. Wentworth initially suffers rejection and frustration because the titled Elliots do not consider him good enough for their daughter Anne. Despite her feelings for Wentworth, Anne allows others to persuade her to break off their engagement. Eight years later, when Wentworth returns from fighting against Napoleon’s army, the difficult years of war have reversed fortunes. Now it is he who is rich, having won many prizes in battle, while the Elliots are deeply in debt and in danger of losing their good name. Will Wentworth seek revenge by choosing another woman over his former love? Can he walk away from Anne, or will the memory of her lips and her touch capture his love once again?

A huge thank you to Regina Jeffers for sending me this for review.

Cover: A really suitable cover.  It actually reminds me of my copy Jane Austen's Persuasion and definitely has an authentic Austen feel to it,although it is not how I imagine Frederick Wentworth.

Plot: Jane Austen's Persuasion retold in Frederick Wenworth's perspective. 

I loved this book.  I am normally wary of adaptations but I thoroughly enjoyed Regina Jeffers book Vampire Darcy's Desire and knew I wanted to read more of her work, plus I am Persuasion obsessed, anything Persuasion related and I am there! Everything I could have wanted was covered in this book- Anne and Frederick's first meeting, their falling in love, her rejection, meeting again after eight years, falling in love all over again and then carrying on where Austen left off, everytime I re-read Persuasion I constantly wonder 'what happens next for Anne and Frederick', and now I don't have to wonder anymore because it was a perfect ending.
Jane Austen's heroes are some of the most loved in literature and yet they don't really have their own 'voice' but after reading Captain Wentworth's Persuasion I fell in love with him all over again.  In Persuasion he comes across as indifferent but really he's in turmoil and it was great seeing how he really reacted to being back in Anne's presence and the misunderstandings that prevent them from being together again and that love really is constant between them.
Carrying on the story was perfect and for me it felt like their story was complete, had come full circle.
Each chapter included a quote from various relevant poems and they were so well chosen you would think they had been written specifically for Anna and Frederick!
For me this has to be a 5/5 stars!  I loved everything about this book and I couldn't put it down, I was so absorbed I read it on the bus, in my lunch hour etc.  I would recommend this for all Austen fans and I will definitely be checking out Darcy's Passions: Pride and Prejudice Through His Eyes.

GEEK GIRL by Cindy C. Bennett BLOGTOUR

  • Paperback: 280 pages
  • Publisher: Sweetwater Books (8 Dec 2011)
Cover: I like how the striking black and red refer to Jen's 'different' appearance and makes the book really stand out.  I've not come across a cover similar to this (not saying there isn't one) and I really like it.

Plot: Jen has lived her life from foster home to foster home.  She decides when and how she leaves.  The home she's in now are not ok with her piercings, making her take them out.  This leads to a bet with her friends- if she can turn goody goody geek Trevor over to the dark side with them they'll pay for a new piercing.
What Jen didn't expect was to fall for that geek.

This book kind of reminded me of a mix between Beauty and the Beast and 10 Things I Hate About I LOVED it!
I'm a sucker for opposites attract romances and boy is this one!
Whar really made this book so enjoyable was the characterisation, particularly of Jen- sometimes I found her attitute humourous and made me smile, other times her defensive sarcasm made me wince, thinking 'ouch too far!' But you always felt for her.
I found her very relatable (despite me never being a foster child) and I'm sure that everyone experiences feelings of isolation, being on the frings and worthlessness at some point, that Jen experiences. 
And Trev- Oh Trev.  I think I love that geek- smart,sweet and funny, who wouldn't love him?!?
The romance was sweet and I found myself 'awwing' on more than one occasion and I was really rooting for them to be together.
Overall Cindy C. Bennett has created a wondeful story that completely absorbed me, when I wasn't reading it I was thinking about reading it.  At first it may seem fairly light hearted but it does tackel some serious issues in a way that I enjoyed reading and didn't depress me.
 A definite read for fans of contemporary YA, it's up there with Stephanie Perkins and Simone Elkeles and was a 5/5 stars read for me.

Interview with Cindy C. Bennett  

• Please tell me about your book. How did you come up with the concept for Geek Girl?

I needed to write a short story (1500 words) to enter a writing contest. As I sat down to think of ideas, for no particular reason the idea of a girl who considered herself bad popped into my head. I wanted to put her with someone who was the polar opposite, and the idea of a geek came to me. But how to get them together? That’s when I decided on the bet angle, and from there it pretty much wrote itself. Once I had finished, I could not get Jen & Trev out of my head. I thought about them constantly. They were demanding to have their story told in full, so I obliged.
• If you could work with any author who would it be?
I know this sounds a little strange from a contemporary YA author, but I’d honestly probably pick Stephen King. I think he’s an amazing, intelligent writer who knows the craft inside out and upside down. I believe I would learn invaluable lessons about writing from working with someone like him.
• Do you have any favorite authors or favorite books?
I have a lot of favorites, so I’ll try to condense. My all-time favorite book is Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale. I’ve read that one many times. I also enjoy the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve been on a bit of a dystopian kick lately. Some favorites from that are The Hunger Games series, the Maximum Ride series, and The Bounds series. I like most things by Stephen King or Dean Koontz. I recently read Sophie & Carter which I really liked. I quite enjoy the dark, twisted writings of James DeSalvo. The Clan of the Cave Bear books have long been a favorite of mine.
• How do you name your characters?
Sometimes their names just come to me, either as I’m imagining the story, or as I begin writing. Other times I have to think about it for some time, and so they have no name for a while. Then I’ll hear a name and it feels right, so that becomes the character’s name. I’ve even resorted to looking up baby name websites on occasion. Trevor from Geek Girl was originally called Tyler, but it just didn’t ever fit, it didn’t flow while I was writing. One day I accidentally typed Trevor, and voilà, I had his name. It has to feel right to me for me to keep it in place.
• What do you think people look for in a book?
I think most people are looking to be entertained. I don’t think most people care about the messages contained within, or any kind of high literature. Not that they never want those things, but an average person picking up a book is doing it for fun. I figure my job as an author is to provide that entertainment. I have no illusions (or disillusions) of writing the next Great American Novel. I only desire my reader to finish the book and be glad they spent the time within its pages.
• Who/what inspires you?
What inspires me most are people who have had something horrible in their life happen (abuse, neglect, being bullied, etc.), whether as a child or an adult, and instead of using that as an excuse to live the rest of their life either to inflict that same upon someone else, or to simply give up and refuse to do anything of worth, they use it to become more than they might have otherwise been. By that I don’t mean they have to go out and become Mother Theresa. It could just be living a good life, loving their friends and family, and being a respected, loving person. Or they may use their situation to inspire others. I completely admire those people. My next three most admired people are: policemen/firemen, servicemen, and teachers.
• Did you always want to write?
I think I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I’ve always loved to read, and felt I could write good stories as well. But it really changed in high school. I had an English teacher in 9th & 10th grade Honors English who really taught me my deep love of literature and even more a desire to be a writer. He’d have us do a “10 Minute Writing” at the beginning of each class, where he would give us a random subject, and for 10 minutes we would just write. I looked forward to that more than anything else all day. He would tell me I wrote well, and encouraged me to think about writing more. That was when I really truly believed I could do it, I could be a real writer.
• If could only read 3 books for the rest of your life what would they be?
That would be a nightmare! But okay, here goes. Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale, Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz, and the Bible. There are some books I love more, but they are part of a series, and it would drive me crazy to not have the complete series.
• What is the hardest part of writing for you?
Definitely editing and formatting. Those two things are complete fun-suckers (meaning they suck the fun out of writing). By the time I’ve finished with those two things, I’m pretty sick of whichever book I’m working on.
• What’s the best thing about being an author?
The interaction with my readers and with other authors. Can you believe I didn’t even know about the world of book blogs before I began writing? What an invaluable resource those are not just for authors, but for readers as well. Who cares what some paid critic says about a book, I want to hear it from another reader, who’s posting reviews for the love of reading. Blogs and the internet have shrunk the world so that readers and writers can interact more closely. I love that. It’s also a pretty good day when I get an email from a reader who says they liked my book.
• What advice would you give aspiring writers?
 Don’t give up, don’t be afraid of rejection (everyone is rejected multiple times), listen to people who read your work and give you pointers (not your mom or BFF, they’ll love it no matter what, try to find complete strangers), learn the craft (particularly grammar, spelling, punctuation), let the bad reviews roll off your back while learning from them, and write what you love, what you’re passionate about.

Thanks so much for stopping by my little blog on your blogtour :) - Erin

Fateful by Cheri Schmidt

Received from author

  • Paperback: 364 pages
  • Publisher: CreateSpace (April 7, 2011)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1461103991
  • ISBN-13: 978-1461103998

A huge fan of Jane Austen, Danielle hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy when she leaves Colorado to attend art school in London. Of course she knows it's silly to wish for that, naive even. But she's met enough males who lacked respect for women, a growing trend it seemed. And at nineteen...well.... However, on only her second night there she gets lost and is threatened by a stalker who proves to be immune to her martial arts training. Before she is completely overpowered, she is then saved by Ethan Deveroux. 

While Danielle does find the romance she seeks in Ethan, he's no Mr. Darcy. Her hero is held by a spell which fractures their chance at a happy ending. During the day Ethan is closer to mortal than immortal and can date her like any other man. Yet, as the sun sets, the powerful magic of an ancient curse returns and the evil of that spell is revealed. When that magic begins, Danielle's fairytale romance ends because Ethan Deveroux is a vampire. 

Firstly a huge thanks to Cheri for sending me this!!

Cover:  I liked how it was a more realistic cover, that the people look real for a change.  I then found out they tah dah they ARE real!  Being Cheri's daughter and a friend...I found that to be a nice touch...even if the guy is not how I pictured Ethan.

Plot: Danielle is attacked by a vampire...and saved by one.  When she moves to England she didn't expect that...or to fall for one.  Ethan is cursed to be a man during the day but become a monster at night...can they make a relationship work or will his enemy Lucas end it before it begins?

4/5 stars.  I really enjoyed this book.  I liked that it was set in England (yay- most of the YA fiction I read is set in the US so it made a nice change to read about places that I know) as well as Danielle being a huge Jane Austen fan (TOTALLY relatable on my part).  She was unashamedly a girly girl when it came to dress but she learnt karate.  I liked this part of it- that she's not your typically weak YA girl but actually against vampires she's still frustratingly weak.  
The love interest between her and Ethan was enjoyable, even if I found it to be a little too fast.  It's mentioned that they knew it other 'before' but that's not really covered, it's mentioned and I was like 'ohhhhh' and wasn't explained but I'm sure that it will be in book 2, Fractured. Ethan lived in a different time and is still a perfect gentleman, so Danielle gets her own Darcy. I can see why some reviews have drawn paralles between Fateful and Twilight and I can see why but it was different enough that I didn't spend the whole thinking this is a twilight rip because it wasn't.
I LOVED the bad vamps, Celeste and Lucas were evil and I can't wait to see how they come back after being thwarted.  
I feel that a lot was set up in this for book 2 so I'm really looking forward to seeing where it goes, and I look forward to more development character wise, particularly romance wise.
I would recommend this book for fans of 'light' paranormal YA.

Book Facts Tag

Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Booking Through Thursday and a different question is posted every week.

E-readers like the Kindle and iPad are sweeping the nation … do you have one? Do you like it? Do you find it changes your reading/buying habits? If you don’t have one, do you plan to?
I don't have one at the moment.  A while ago I swore I would never get the old 'they'll kill physical books argument' but I'm increasingly finding books that I desperately want to read that I can't get here in the UK in physical copies but I could read it if a got an E-copy.  Plus I'm increasingly running of of bookshelf space.
I have asked for a Kindle for Xmas because I have heard so many people say it's not like reading an E-reader, and it appealed to me because I have trouble reading books on the computer (my eyes just don't like it) so I wouldn't like reading on an I-pad because of the backlit screen so the non-glare screen of  Kindle is perfect.  I know I'll still mostly buy physical copies but the benefits of netgalley is a bonus and the books that I have previously been unable to read.

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is all about sharing the books that I'm eagerly waiting to be released.

This week's book is one so many are waiting for...

The Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare, out 6th December.
