Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting! This week I am waiting on....

Two years ago, Scarlet awoke in the forest alone, afraid, and unable to remember anything. 
Lost and confused, her life was a mystery...until she met a boy with a familiar voice. Gabriel Archer has a voice from her past, and Scarlet's determined to remember why. 
She immerses herself in his life only to discover he has a brother he's kept hidden from her: Tristan Archer. Upon meeting Tristan, Scarlet's world becomes even more muddled. 
While she's instinctively drawn to Gabriel, she's impossibly drawn to Tristan--and confused out of her mind.
 As she tries to piece together her history Scarlet realizes her past might just be the death of her. 
Bound to both brothers by a deadly curse, Scarlet desperately searches for the one thing that can save all three of them: A 500-year-old legend.

Expected publication: December 7th 2011 by Acacia Publishing
This one sounds really good.Plus girl caught between two brothers never gets old!

ExtraNormal (ExtraNormal, #1)
Mira Johns is pretty much like any other teenage girl. Except that she knows how to harness electro-magnetic energy to communicate without words. And she's really, really far from home. Her assignment as an emissary to Earth sounds fairly simple: blend in, observe, and stay away from the planet’s primitive males. But after she finds one mysterious boy too irresistible for stupid rules, she realizes the real reason she's supposed to keep her distance: mates from her world can die if separated. But a series of serious accidents make it clear that someone wants to force her return. Mira decides her only hope is to uncover the truth to why she, the most mediocre of candidates, was actually chosen for this assignment—before the agency discovers her secret and sends her back home

Expected publication: January 2012

Cover love!!!!!!!

What are you waiting on?

FYI: Please mark December 3 on your calendars!Because you all have to vote for Annabeth in the YA Sisterhood Tournament on that day!!!!!

Review: Obsidian

Obsidian (Lux #1)
Starting over sucks. 

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. 

And then he opened his mouth. 

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens. 

The hot alien living next door marks me. 

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. 

If I don’t kill him first, that is.
Release Date: December 6,2011

My Thoughts: 

This book can be described in one word......


That's the first thing that came to my mind when I finished this book .

By no means is this as good as the awesomeness that is Half Blood but it comes pretty close. After reading this book I realized why I had  pledged lifelong allegiance to this author. All the things  that  Armentrout has written so far has been sooooo  good! 
So even though I'm rating this 4 stars it might have something to do with the fact that I had SKY-HIGH expectations.

I loved the hot chemistry between the protagonists! I loved it when they were fighting!The chemistry and the fights made this book steamy hot! (without even crossing that moral line )

Daemon Black is a welcome addition to the crush list.The best part about him is the fact that he's not EXACTLY a bad boy.After all a guy who goes to huge lengths to keep his sister safe cannot be classified as a bad boy,Can he? Also,he wasn't the "OMG,girl I'm in love with you but you're too good for me" types.I really liked that! His reactions and comebacks to Katy's sarcastic comments were great.

I also loved the fact that Katy loved books and the fact that she found them to be a welcome escape from her day to day activities as I could relate to that.I didn't think the fact that Katy was a blogger was a necessary/essential to this book .It was nice but  if the blogging thing is not mentioned in the next book I wouldn't miss it.There were some parts when for some reason I wasn't very happy with Katy but I forgot my irritation when she said something sarcastic (I love my sarcastic girls!)

One thing I didn't exactly understand is why Katy was so determined to be Dee's friend.It's not that I don't like Dee but I just couldn't understand why she wanted  to be Dee's friend,so badly.I think the reason the author gave for her fascination or determination wasn't convincing enough for me.

Another thing....
NO Love triangle guys(I Think.Was there a love triangle?I didn't think so but that could be because I was too lost in their hot chemistry)  

also NO cliffhanger (per say) but you'll still want to get your hands on the sequel badly!

Overall,a fun hot read with an interesting story.Fans of Jennifer Armentrout and hot guys should definitely pick this one up !

My Rating:                                                    4/5


I must say Entangled Publishing is a publisher to keep your eyes on! Their book Touch ,is my pick of the month and I can't wait to get my hands on the sequels of this one and Touch :)

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting! This week I am waiting on....

Earth, Fire, Air, Water – they have more power than you dream. 

Ever since her ex-boyfriend spread those lies about her, Becca Chandler is suddenly getting all the guys—all the ones she doesn’t want. Then she saves Chris Merrick from a beating in the school parking lot. Chris is different. Way different: he can control water—just like his brothers can control fire, wind, and earth. They’re powerful. Dangerous. Marked for death. 

And now that she knows the truth, so is Becca. 

Secrets are hard to keep when your life’s at stake. When Hunter, the mysterious new kid around school, turns up with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time, Becca thinks she can trust him. But then Hunter goes head-to-head with Chris, and Becca wonders who’s hiding the most dangerous truth of all. 

The storm is coming . . .
Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by K Teen

Character Interview with Kale from Touch

Today I have the HOT Kale from Touch over for an interview! I love this book!
Check out my review here. I loved Kale in the book and I was ecstatic when I found out that I could actually interview him!!! 
If you have no idea which book I'm talking about maybe you should read the blurb....

When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home. 
Except there's something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she'll turn to dust if he touches her. 
It's not until Dez's father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there's more to this boy, and her father's "law firm," than she realized. Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation -- an organization devoted to collecting "special" kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons -- his entire life. 
And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. 
The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they're caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe. 
A secret Kale will kill to protect.
Sounds good.Doesn't it? If the blurb doesn't convince you ,maybe you should check out the HAWT teaser I've posted today!
Enough about how awesome this book is....It's time to have a chat with Kale!

 Hi  Kale ,sup?
 So...what can you tell me about your book,Touch
 It's the story of how Dez and I met. And how I gained my freedom.

 What's your favourite scene/line from the book?
I like any of the scenes where I get to kiss Dez...

 Do you like Alex?
Alex is...irritating. If I didn't think it would make Dez angry, I would touch him. your thoughts on Dez? (she's can be quite irritating, right?)

Dez? of course not. I don't understand some of the things she says, but I
love the sound of her voice. The way she moves. She's stronger than anyone
I could have ever imagined meeting and beautiful--inside and out.
Irritating? No, there's nothing irritating about Dez.

 What would you do if you could 
Do you have that ability? I would have to think about it if you're offering...

What's the last book you've read?
The week before I escaped from Denazen, I read the S Encyclopedia. B is my favorite.

What's next?
*Kale looks around* Next for what?

Fred Astair
Rapid Fire (what it the first thing that comes to your mind when I say....)

  - Twilight - The time right before dark.

  - Black Dark - Huh?

  - Harry Potter - Who is that?

  - Hot - It's actually quite cold in here...

  - Wings - Birds? I don't know any people who have them...

  - Coffee - Dez likes coffee...

  - T.V. - Fred Astaire

  - Denazen - Don't say that word...

Kale I love you  you're awesome! Would you be interested in hangingout with me sometime? *pretty please*
Hanging out? You mean spending time together, right? Dez says I take things a bit too literally so I assume you don't mean something that involves actual hanging... But, yes. We could hang out. Dez would love to meet you.

I don't think he understood the fact that I wanted to hang out with him ALONE. *sigh* Maybe I was too subtle?
