Chosen by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast

Summary: Bloodlust. Dark Forces.

Both are happening at the House Of Night.

People Zoey Redbird use to love are turning into her new enemies.

Sworn enemies are also changing.

Becoming friends. People to trust.

Zoey's strength will be challenged.

Her power. Her everything.

Stevie Ray, her best friend and old roommate, is undead.

Zoey helps her try to hold on to the little humanity that she still possesses, even though she has no idea how.

Zoey can't ask for help.

She can't tell anyone about Stevie Ray.

Or about anything else that she finds out about while she's at the House Of Night.

Trust doesn't seem to exist anymore.

As if all of that wasn't enough for Zoey to deal with, she now has THREE boyfriends.

A situation that can turn into a social disaster.

For everyone.

Zoey starts to find that full grown vampyres are dying.

Which should be impossible.

But now Zoey and her friends start to realize that impossible doesn't exist for them anymore.

Rating: 4 Stars

Review: I really like this series. But by the third book some stuff seemed a little repetitive. It was a good book once you got past that. But I like the first two books better. The series is well written but sometimes there's a feeling that you don't have to read them in order or as a series. A lot is retold or something like that. But P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast are still really talented writers. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Alternative Cover

So I was on the computer and got really bored.

I started googling stuff. That's when I came across this:

It's an alternative cover for Gone by Michael Grant.

I found it at http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/g/michael-grant-2/gone.htm.

And I personally like it more then the first and probably most known cover:

I'm probably the only one who DOES like it more because I usually am.

But I love to everyone else's opinion on the alternative cover. =]

Lexi <3

P.S. I might make this a new feature on my blog but I haven't completely decided yet.

Gone by Michael Grant

Summary: GONE.

That's what happens to everyone in the town of Perdido Beach.

Except for the young.

Teens, middle schoolers, toddlers. All left alone.

No cops, no doctors, no teachers, no parents. No one.

No Internet, no phone, no television. No way to reach the outside world.

Bullies rule as hunger threatens.

Creatures lurk as animals mutate.

Teens are changing too.

Developing powers that should defy the laws of the universe.

Powers grow in strength every day.

A fight is growing.

Rich against poor.

Bullies against weak.

Powerful against powerless.

But they soon find out that every ones time in running out.

The minute you were born you disappear.

Just like everyone else before you...

Rating: 5 Stars

Review: I LOVED this book. The first time I started reading it, earlier this year, I couldn't get into it. But this time I couldn't put it down. It was addicting! I had to know what was going to happen and how some of the characters were connected. This book definitely had A LOT of surprises in it. I didn't know what could possibly happen next. I think everyone should read this book and I can't wait for the next one in the series.


Hey =]

Being grounded totally sucks.
Especially when your grounded just from the computer. Like me. And the computer happens to be my life...?

But anyway I'm now ungrounded. Which you should already be able to tell considering I'm posting. =P

Being grounded gave me time to think *cough read cough* so I'm half way done with Gone now. I'll try to post my newest review soon.

But give me a week. I'm not in a very readie mood. =]

All My Love,

The Rule Of Won by Stefan Petrucha

Caleb Dunne is the slacker extraordinaire, who happens to have the most overachieving girlfriend ever, Vicky.

Vicky talks Caleb into joining a new club at Screech Neck High School. It's based on the new best selling and most controversial book, The Rule Of Won.

He thinks that it's all just going to be fun and games, but he soon realizes that this book and the mind set it gives people pulls them in quickly.

As the club grows through the whole school, including teachers and the principal, Caleb realizes that The Rule is turning into a cult.
And stopping a cult isn't as easy of an obstacle to cross as he hoped.

When Caleb gets the help of a former enemy he thinks that everything will be fixed and go back to normal.

But he soon realizes that his problems won't simply disappear by willing them away.

I loved this book. I've never has the chance to read a book by Stefan although I've really wanted to. I really like this writing style in this book. I got pulled in by the first chapter and it was always really hard to put down the book. The main character, Caleb, had a really funny personality. He seems to be one of the few characters to think rational about things and not get pulled in even though he a very much a slacker. I think everyone should read this book and the other ones that Stefan Petrucha has published. =]

Guess What...

Just arrived in my mailbox!

An ARC of The Rule Of Won by Stefan Petrucha. Autographed and everything!
I haven't started to read it yet but after i get off the computer I'm going to start. =]
I'm not sure who long it will take me to read it because I've been really busy with school and my boyfriend lately. But as soon as i read it I'll review it and tell everyone what I think. =]

Breaking Dawn


Yes I read Breaking Dawn. I'm a major Twilight fan. =]

But even though I loved the rest of the books in the series I pretty much hated this one. With the first three, it took me a matter of 2-3 day to read them. Breaking dawn? 3 months!

I found it very predictable and very boring because of that. I mean every one knew that Bella and Edward would have a happy ending but couldn't Mrs. Meyer put a LITTLE more excitement into it?

I mean Bella turning into a vampire, having a daughter, and having an actually pretty cool power did make it interesting BUT Jacob imprinting on the daughter? I didn't like that part. I thought he should of imprinted on someone else. And his narration? Was that really necessary? I got to that part and stopped reading the book. I found it very boring.
Even though Jacob is pretty much my favorite character! (Alice being the first)

I just think that could of been a better ending to the series that completely turned me on the vampire novels/series!

This will still remain one of my top series even though I hated Breaking Dawn.

P.S. No stick or rock throwing because I spoke my mind. =]
