I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! Now that we have that out-of-the-way =)

Eleanor Fitt is a 16-year-old girl, living with her mother in Philadelphia year 1876 but somethings not quite right. The dead are starting to come back. And one day when Eleanor went tot he post office to see if her brother had sent her a message the post office was attacked by the dead and one of the dead has a message for her from her brother. *GASP* I know right creepy. Eleanor is determined to save her brother from the dead so she goes seeking help from the Spirit-Hunters. Were she meets the snarky but handsome inventor Daniel.

How can you not like a book that has Zombies and handsome boys in it now there is a love triangle and for me I’m getting a bit tired of love triangles but really it’s not even a major point of the book the other boy is just there because her mother keeps pushing her to him.

And I have to say the séance scene was really very cool.

This book just had me going from the get go I love regency romance novels. This book had all of that and zombies. Heck adding zombies to anything makes it awesome. Susan Dennard is a great author and I can’t wait for SSD’s sequel to come out sometime next year.

Shatter Me

By: Tahreh Mafi

Synopsis: Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war– and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

I’m super excited to read this one.

So tell me what have you guys picked up recently from the bookstore?

I give this book a:
5 out of 5 and Yes I would recommend it to everyone!

This book blew my mind from the moment I picked it up and started reading it I couldn’t put it down I practically pulled an all nighter reading this book. I’m so glad I read it this book is WORTH all the hype it’s getting.

Cinder is a futuristic retelling of Cinderella. It’s about a girl who is a mechanic and works in a booth for her stepmother in the city of New Beijing. Theirs something different about Cider she is a Cyborg.  And most of the time she tries to keep her cyborg side hidden because cyborgs are discriminated against.

One day while she’s running her Mechanics booth the Prince of New Beijing shows up to have Cinder fix his android that is not working. And from that day forward they keep meeting.

The major plot point of the book was pretty predictable but I was actually okay with that it didn’t take away anything from the book or my enjoyment of it.

From the very beginning Cinder had me hooked, Marissa Meyer is as an author is truly gifted about drawing you in and keeping you attention.

This book has everything Science Fiction, Action adventure, Romance. It has something in it for everyone! I recommend if you haven’t picked up this book yet you need to it is a must read for 2012

Here is the first chapter from the audio book which was provided for me from Macmillan Audio I hope you enjoy.

Category: Love & Romance, Teens,
ISBN-10: 0062059939 ISBN-13: 9780062059932
I give this book a:
3.5 out of 5 and Yes I would recommend it to some.

The first thing they caught me with this book was the Cover it was very pretty and eye-catching. I can hear you say it now you can’t judge a book by its cover and in this case its only partially right.

The second thing that caught me was the interesting premise. The book is about a girl named America Singer who is chosen by lottery to be 1 of 35 girls chosen to compete to marry the prince. Very Bachelor sounding right?

For the most part I enjoyed the novel there were a few things about it that didn’t quite sit well with me and I’ll go over those a bit later.
